I was one of the early adapters. I bought Anthem on pre-order, I played the Beta. I was lucky in that I didn’t have any of the hard crashes or significant glitches that others had experienced but the game was still a little rough. It was fun, though.
Anthem is a looter shooter that combines the third person shooter experience with the action role playing experience, to varying degrees of success. Taking place in Bastion, a country lacking in details on an unnamed planet, the name Anthem refers to the Anthem of Creation, a supernatural force of unknown power and origin that feeds dangerous relics and creates strange beasts. You play a Freelancer, a sort of mercenary that pilots a Javelin, a suit of power armor that allows you to fly and battle the dangers of Bastion, and the factions that would try to harness the Anthem for themselves.
