E3 Anthem Dev Admits "We Have Some Work To Do" - GameSpot
Enemies all either stand on the ground or hover just above it. Where are the enemy javelins? The enemy Striders? Ninety percent of what you kill will be ground-bound grunts taken down in a flash. For a game in which movement is emphasized and enjoyable, combat involves very little of it. The campaign, which is surprisingly well acted but forgettable, seems like it was tacked on in a hurry.
Amazingly, a major cutscene details a much more interesting story, in which a major city is overrun and destroyed and only a few survive. It struck me at the time that this might have been the original campaign and starting mission, after which you are logically relegated to the nearby Fort Tarsis and forced to fight for scraps. Even trying to quit these missions rarely worked! Some of these bugs and issues have been mitigated by patches, but not all. Spoiler warning!
What do you think is in the tombs?
Trailers and gameplay
A taxing dungeon full of traps, monsters and ancient treasure? Literally just a tiny, empty room. Even the loot you get is frustratingly low-quality and unimaginative. Every gun or component is a standard model almost always with just slightly better damage than the last one you found, and perhaps a stat bonus. But the stat bonuses are boring and often nonsensical: do I really want an assault rifle that gives me 10 percent better damage with heavy pistols?
For comparison when I was playing Diablo III recently I found a pair of leg armor early on that produced a powerful poison cloud whenever I was touching three or more enemies. Suddenly I played differently, rushing into crowds of monsters and leaping out, then immobilizing them while their life ticked down. I changed out my weapons, focused on physical defense, poison buffs… all because of a pair of pants!
Every new power and gun is the same as the old one but with a higher number. The pistol that does double damage against one class of enemy, the sniper rifle that automatically chambers a new round instantly in one out of five shots? The campaign is half there; the controls and UI are half there; the loot is half there. The multiplayer is half there. I liked Anthem when it was at its best, but that was so very little of the time I spent in it, and it took so much effort and patience on my part to even make those moments a possibility.
