    From what I've seen so far of the game, I find it ironic that, while it has high-quality visuals, it has a completely generic look as far as it's style goes. The enemies, the power armours, the city, they all look "ok", but bland and uninspired. Does anyone think this too? So far, it really does feel like a 6/10 game. I also enjoy the fact that, finally, (new) Bioware gets called out fo a bland, uninspired storyline (as if Inquisition and Andromeda were different, but those have big names attached to them).

    Tell me about it...

    I have droves of people telling me, dude dude you've got to try this, it's amazing!! I tried Apex and I liked its mechanics but at the end of the day I was still bored because it was... a Battle Royale.

    Changing to High preset and enabling Motion Blur made the gameplay much smoother at 3440x1440, especially on the CPU (I'd like to find that specific setting). Honestly I don't see a visual difference between Ultra and High though I bet it's there. The GPU also seems to work a little bit more oddly enough and has a more consistent workload. Ultra is just a stuttering mess just like the Ultra preset in AC:Odyssey.

    Played for 2hrs straight and had a blast!

    There is no stuttering in AC: O.

    Obviously depends on your setup - specifically your cpu...

    Yah, I'm not his biggest fan either and I find many of his criticisms to be somewhat asinine.

    In his original Anthem review video, he was moaning that he'd done a fairly lengthy quest and wasn't 'rewarded' with armour or something visual so that 'everyone could see that he'd completed it'.

    Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't give a toss what other people think of my character's appearance or my progression, in all honesty, I would have preferred it if Anthem was a fully single player game (2-4 player co-op for the story would have been fine).

    This whole 'live service' thing seems to be predicated on 'showing off' and it just does not appeal to me in any way, especially when it compromises the quality of the product.

    Agreed. I prefer to shoot stuff, complete the objectives, get my loot and enjoy the gameplay rather than gasping on some random guys golden armor for several minutes, I couldn't care less tbh.

    His angry shtick is a bit too pre2010's youtube cringe territory. More than he probably realizes. Tho i suppose you had to make it big back then.
    He's ok for your average mainstream superficial "review". Mostly I will just check the occasional review after playing something for my self and end up thinking he spoils too much stuff in these videos (don't put much weight behind his skills of observation and critique). Tho now that i think about, it's probably mostly for the stupid dressup bits.

    edit:nvm that's not even a review lol, derp ignore je post :S
