People I work with are claiming they haven't seen anything negative about anthem. I wonder what they are smoking or if they are just plain stupid or what lol
The top 5 complaints are: load times, worthless narrative (atypical of a BioWare game), repetitive mission types, boring loot, and finally bugs. The javelins themselves are fun to pilot and are overall fulfilling, but the problem (as is all too common) is that the game mechanics themselves are just poorly designed and make the game a chore to play at times. There's a lot of schoolboy mistakes that veterans of open world, online games easily spot before they should ever be implemented and that's why it's frustrating to see such idiotic design repeated when a game in development for six years should have known better.
Things like being downed and unable to do anything but hard exit the game unless a teammate bothers to revive you. I can tell you from experience, if you're playing with a group of trolls who think you suck or are holding the team back; they will leave your ass behind for the rest of the mission. Or being able to AFK the entire mission and unable to be kicked. HAVE THEY NEVER HEARD OF BOOSTING LOL?
I mean, see for yourself since the review scores are rolling out. It's getting mediocre reviews OUTSIDE the fact EA is publishing. In fact, I've not seen a single negative thing about EA in all this; the game is just unfinished and people are calling them out for it.
