launches today, giving all PS4, Xbox One, and PC (with Origin) users a chance to embark on journey in an unfinished, abandoned by gods world. While the expectations were high (as always when it comes to a BioWare title), Anthem
is currently sitting at a hugely disappointing 61% score on Metacritic with 23 counted reviews for the PC version, meaning that the looter shooter is even more problematic than 2017's divisive Mass Effect: Andromeda
(currently at 72% on the site).
According to Corporate Vice President of Xbox Mike Ybarra, you should not express your negative opinions about this unfinished title, as Ybarra took to Twitter two days ago to say that he's "amazed at the whining. One reviewer, not the below, reviewed the game yet in the review cited that he didn’t even know how to do a combo. Embarrassing to review with such a lack of knowledge.
Considering that the game has been available in EA Early Access since last Friday, it'd make sense to expect that EA shipped a finished product, and even the mandatory day-one patch shouldn't change the game's core gameplay mechanics and the way it tries to tell its story. The fact that technical issues are just a cherry on top of many systemic designs, that never seem to work together and regularly contradict themselves, should tell you all you need to know about BioWare's latest video game.
In a world left unfinished by the gods, a shadowy faction threatens all of humankind. The only thing that stands between these villains and the ancient technology they covet are the Freelancers. Join up to three other players and assemble high-tech, hand-crafted, uniquely powerful exosuits. Explore vast ruins, battle deadly enemies, and claim otherworldly artifacts. With every mission, you and your Javelin exosuits grow in power. Fight the dangers of an ever-changing world. Rise united to defeat evil. Triumph as one.
Anthem is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Origin) NOW!
