Anthem is not doing good AT ALL right now. Adding to the already heaping pile of criticism, one Anthem player has heavily criticized the game’s uninteresting combat system.
A Reddit user by the name of Unicorn2007 made a post yesterday, critiquing the game’s boring combat. They have suggested adding more enemies as the player progresses through the game instead of adding more health. Unicorn2007’s Reddit post has over 4,700 upvotes as of now.
“It’s boring as f*** sitting there shooting one enemy for minutes at a time,” they said. “Higher difficulties should be more enemies. It’s not often you get a big group of enemies together as it is so a lot of the AOE skills are useless. Make them fun by adding more enemies, not increasing health.”
This is not the first time an Anthem player’s criticism has blown up on Reddit.
A Reddit user “harishcs” asked BioWare “what’s going on?” in an open- letter Reddit thread which received more than 4,800 upvotes.
The thread went on to criticize several issues with EA’s Anthem such as its massive list of bugs, downgrades, unbalanced loot system and much more. The user ends the post by saying “we still believe in this game.”
BioWare’s Community Manager, Jesse Anderson responded back with saying
[…] The team is listening to all of your feedback for Anthem on how you’d like to see the game improve, or how you’d like to see us engage with the community differently.
Anthem’s boring combat is a big issue for the game and Unicorn2007 is quite right. Adding more enemies would give players actually to fight something instead of just shooting at just a few enemies because bullet sponges DO NOT make the game more interesting.
Anthem is an online game by BioWare for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Out now!
