Is Anthem worth the $3.99 gamestop is charging for it?

1- Don't ever fucking give lamestop even a penny. If you must get the game then price match at bestbuy or something.

2- Anthem is a fucking turd of a game and bioware doesn't even deserve a cut of a 3.99 sale for it. I paid 10 for it, played it about 3 hours and uninstalled it and threw everything away except for the game case to use as a spare incase I get a used game off Ebay and the case isn't in too good of shape.

I think the fact that you had to ask if a game was worth 4 dollars in spite of thinking it "looks awesome" should answer your own question. It's a content barren game that was sold on a future it didn't have. Might as well just save that money for something you know you want rather than spend it to go dumpster fishing.

That game is not great , but it is no where near as horrible as the popular sites make it seem. I don't care what anyone says. The flying in the game is fun. It is worth $4 bucks. You will get a great 10-15 hours out of it before you get bored .

As someone who invested more than some measly 20hrs into the game to actually know what is about. It’s a garbage and completely dead game. Deleted it and no reason to go back.

Please keep in mind that Fallout 76 is a resounding success in comparison to both Division 2 and Anthem.

They could fix what’s there ... and it involves firing every single employee at BioWare.

still better than Inquisition tho

my friend works for a mom and pop game store and they had so many copies of fallout 76 that people traded in they were literally giving out a free fallout 76 disc with any purchase because they just had to get rid of them. the thing about shitty games for a low price is you gotta consider that your own time has value, so if you waste 5 hours on a shitty video game and let's say you make $20 an hour, that's $100 value of you wasted right there for a shitty $5 game

There's about 15 enjoyable hours in there. If you go into it with that expectation then sure, it's worth a few dollars. Problem is, once you get past that point, you will probably regret having invested your time, especially if you hoped it all to lead somewhere.

I have origin access but never tried this game. I heard, read, and saw enough to avoid this. There are two great free alternatives out there too, destiny and warframe, so i don't understand why they still asking money for this.

Nope. Who cares that it's cheap, you're still wasting your time you could spend on playing countless better games.
