Ended up buying a months worth of EA Access Premier for about $20 to give Anthem a good go over the month. Based on old video store rental fees, this seems quite cheap.
Seems like a lot of fun so far. Comes with its fair share of issues at the moment but find myself overlooking a number of them so far as the gameplay is really good. A tonne of videos out at the moment detailing the issues so I wont go into them here but I havent had any gamebreaking ones yet.
For me this game feels like an awesome "filler" to pick up and play when Destiny 2 goes stale between expansions. I dont feel like there will be enough content in this to be full time but to be honest I dont think I want two time hogs at the moment and I still prefer Destinys gunplay so that will always be my main.
I have be unenthused lately when loading up Destiny 2 as I have burned through most of the content, so its refreshing to actually be excited to to get home and load up another game for a session.
I'm sure by the time I get to the end game content I might change my tune, but will give the developers a chance to fix whats not working, iron out the bugs and add more replayability.
I try to not compare Anthem, a new IP on launch to a 5-6 year refined Destiny experience. I just hope they are active and committed to develop it further while I'm enjoying the ride.
