I have been playing it. Really enjoying the game overall. Yes, the load screens are annoying, so I'm hoping the "day one" patch cuts those load times down a good bit. However, most of the things that people have complained about with Anthem have not been a problem for me. I would prefer faster load times, but I still remember well the elevator rides of the first Mass Effect. The menu system which some people call clunky, is not a hindrance to me at all. It is not the best menu system but it is still serviceable and easy enough to get around in. I've run into a couple server connection issues, which is definitely annoying, but those have not happened often enough to cause me to stop playing the game. The story is not as good as Bioware typically makes, not bad, just not the typical really good Bioware story. What I do enjoy is the world itself and the combat. Those things have kept me coming back. Currently I am working on getting masterwork gear and completing the challenges (how you unlock the ability to craft better versions of gear, basically kill X # of baddies with a particular weapon, stuff like that). Most of my complaints are quality of life issues, so nothing game breaking. I am looking forward to the future of Anthem, but until then, I'll continue having fun in the Anthem of now.
*EDIT* Forgot to mention, if you are thinking of purchasing the game, but unsure if you will like it or stick with it, get a single month of EA Prime. $15 (US) for a month with the game means you could do pretty much everything you want to in Anthem. If you still like, then buy the game. If you don't like it, don't buy the game. Sure you might pay an extra $15 for the game, but that is better than paying $60 and hating the game.
