The first picture looks like a bunch of character portraits from a late 90s Polish RPG.

Can you be more precise? Define what?

They all look fine to me.

But the Anthem ones look like they could all be sisters; they all seems to be sourced from the same core face, with added tweaks and changes here and there.

The "negative" thing really would be that all of these Anthem women look the same to me. Like, the art team said **** it with multi-character design.

They are? That's news to me.

And here I am, thinking Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Jade Empire, SW: The Old Republic, Knights of the Old Republic, Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and MDK2 were good games and series. Silly me!

Yeah pretty much how I felt. Not a big concern to me, though.

Making alts already @Tarnalia? This thread is far to similar to your previous entry-

All the women NPC in Anthem = ugly.

We get it, Bioware fans like yourself boned over Mass Effect space chicks.

No one outside that bubble cares, Anthems priority is being a good game, and right now no one knows even after the Beta if it'll deliver in that aspect.

I've read from 4Gamer claims the controls are ok, standard Bioware, but the flying is pretty excellent and a highlight. Enemy A.I. is pretty horrendous though.

How are we supposed to judge the Anthem characters when we don't know their names, personalities, etc.?

All we have is their appearance, which isn't much to to on.

Appearance matters.

Comparing protagonists to a bunch of cloned NPCs. Genius.

Obviously OP is comparing their attractiveness. I dont really see anything wrong with that so I'm just going to be simply honest, as to my opinion.

Half of Anthem look like guys or given guy haircuts. Some of them look like they are the same character OR Bioware is lazy as F. They are also obviously not as attractive as their previous characters from older games but thats because nowadays, in gaming theres a big push for a more plain jane looking female representation. Why? I dunno but apparently some feminists don't like male gamers ogling at attractive pixel females so whatever. imho its stupid and a double standard since in all other forms of media, especially music, leading females are still 99% very attractive.

BUT, that said, they look alot more palatable than the disaster that was Andromeda HAH.

Its an EA game designed purely as game as service product anyway so its an instant no buy for me.

I see your point... but...

Let's not pretend that the good BioWare games were made by the same people as the bad BioWare games.

BioWare is only a name at this point.
