I'm one of those who refunded my Legend of Dawn Edition.
The demo was super boring. The guns feel so un-satisfyingly under-powered. Which indicates this game is too heavy on the grind. Not interested in this kind unsatisfying grind. I'd prefer Mass Effect's or Dragon Age level of grind. Not this kind of infinity level of grind.
The online implementation is more of a burden because it resulted in me not getting to enjoy the story as I was always facing a loading screen. The trade off for online functionality as a result is just not worth the amount of loading screen nonsense.

I would rather wait for a more polished game with a more cheaper price tag than pay so much for the most buggiest game since Mass Effect Andromeda.

Seriously EA. Stop rushing perfection. Bioware makes such terrific games but your control over them asking unnecessary features like "we want it to have online functionality so we can sell loots!" kind of ruined it. Even in the demo, the skins were unsatisfying. All I saw of my random teammates were almost pitch black characters. And because we are all rushing for the objective, we can't stop and admire each other's skins. So why have PAID skins to begin with?

The dismal reviews from those initial reviews was enough for me to reaffirm my believe of how broken and boring this game is in terms of story and gameplay grind.
"Please help me find this relic", fight through hords of enemies. Not even any variation in gameplay like maybe stealth. Just follow the quest marker, kill and follow the quest marker again.

Similarly, some love the particle effects flying about but it gave me a hard time seeing the enemies since they love to paint the enemies in the shadows where they are black while the effects are colourful and covers your sights on whether the enemy is still alive or dead in those boring dungeon/dark areas.

What a AAA disappointment coming from my most beloved great RPG and storytelling company. Bioware. But I understand this is because EA is intervening too much putting in irrelevant features and bogging the game down. Oh well.

More reviews are in today.
Currently, Metacritic rating totals it up to a mere 63.

You can consider getting Origin Premier for one month $19.90 then.

You will be able to play both games and more. And if you decide to buy afterwards, Origin Premier will also give you 10% off.

Personally, while I agree Anthem has many flaws but combat is not one of them. Many reviews point out the combat is outstanding.

Yeah cause the origin Premier is subscription based. Once you stop the subscription, you will lose access to the games unless you purchase the game.

please see first post for discord link, group has grown significantly in the last week. plenty of opportunity to learn and help one another through the story.

edit: and there's no rush to complete the story or anything. can complete it at your own pace and even solo if you choose.

Strongholds and higher tier gear on the other hand needs teamwork.
