Anthem

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Anthem is pretty to look and there are flashes of brilliance, but boring loot and a tedious endgame disappoint. Stay away.

6.5/10

Anthem has energetic combat but it saves too much of what precious little content it has for the endgame, making playing through its mismatched story a tediously repetitive grind.

6/10

There are flashes of brilliance, especially when it comes to the flying, but confused storytelling, boring loot, and unsatisfying missions don’t justify the game’s massive time investment.

55/10

Anthem’s disjointed story, boring loot, repetitive missions, and shallow endgame are all disappointing. At least it’s pretty.
