Anthem originally launched on February 22, 2019 to initial praise. Within just a few days, however, the game was receiving criticism from all fronts. Many claimed the story and dialogue were incredibly weak for a Bioware game. Others pointed to the lack of substance beyond a few repeatable strongholds once the main bulk of the game was completed. It only took a few weeks for many of us to realize that even the end game was a disaster of mismanaged expectations and convoluted systems. I always believed there was a worthy game in Anthem, and that is why I am incredibly disappointed it finally got the axe.
