Played some more #Anthem and completed the demo storyline. Opinions:
* Narrative pulled me in more than Destiny 2. I felt more involved with the characters etc.
* Gunplay isn't as good as Destiny 2, doesn't have the pacing of Warframe.
* World feels expansive (Javelin helps)
Conclusion: competent and fun, but didn't grab me as a must-have. Will definitely wait for reviews. Might buy at launch, more likely get the GOTY edition later.
@gazimoff I'm sorry it didn't grab you! :( I really, really like it. Maybe I'm just easily distracted by pretty explosions. LOL
@Traellan No need to apologise!
I'm intrigued by the story, world and setting, but I'm very aware that I only saw a snapshot of a larger game. Hence my 'wait for reviews' comment.
If it's promising, I'll buy it at launch. If it needs more time, I'll wait for a GOTY edition.
Gunplay and combat aren't bad per se, but they didn't win me over like Destiny 2 and Warframe did.
@gazimoff I'm waiting and seeing. I had hoped it would be Destiny 2 but with more/clearer RPG influences (more gear slots/variety, more distinct class roles, etc.).
