Age Of Co....(Not finished) 0

Well I went into Age Of Conan with a set of high hopes, this game looked to be the mmo I would be with for years to come, the World Of Warcraft killer, that one perfect game I could come back to over and over without thinking "Why am I playing this" well I was half right, the game does start off quite well, but soon declines into a rocky shit mudslide in which it can`t stop, an avalanche of bug, glitches and unfinished rushed work. Maybe it was my hype that killed it, maybe it was me believing t...

Amazing Next-Gen RPGn' 0

Right as you step into the World of Hyboria, all the elements of Conan's Lore is right there in your face. Every little detail in the environment, character models, music, combat, gore, (and even more gore), is there just waiting for you to interact with it.For the first 20 levels or so, you are fighting to save a corrupt pirate haven name Tortage. You start off as a slave, but once you help a bunch of needy townsfolk, you quickly gain respect and even greater rewards. The beginning single-playe...

Do babarian's keep their promises? 0

In the Year 4 after World of Warcraft, the online community is still waiting for a game to break WoW's dominance. On the first look Age of Conan seems to be a promising contestant: It combines great graphics, a slightly action-oriented Gameplay and a more mature backdrop, that should differ enough to attract those players, that either never got into WoW or are already bored of it.  The question is if it will be able to deliver on this promise.On the technical side, there isn't much to complain. ...

Phenominal! Revolutionary! 0

Well as you all know, the hype for this game was INSANE! Like it was huge! But you cant really trust the hype, like look at Hellgate:London. It got really hyped up and didnt fit expectations. This game, is not like that! It far surpasses the hype! After waiting like forever and doing beta this is my review for this game: This game is Revolutionary Amazing! I was hyped up for this game since early 2006 and expected it to be good but i was extremely surprised. Here is a brief list of features...

Age of Conan 0

What can I say, who will ever dethrone World of Warcraft ? I suppose it will be Blizzards upcoming MMO itself, the king is dead, long live the king. Age of Conan was an ambitious attempts, focussing on lore, theme and atmosphere instead of casual playability (such as WOW and all the "free" online MMOs such as Dofus, Rappelz etc.) The lore was very well implemented, yet one must wonder who knows Robert E.Howard's fictional canon anyway ? Compared to the LOTR, Star Trek Online (tba), Star Wars Gal...

Good for a Month 0

 I beta tested the game through FilePlanet and was mildly impressed with some of the features, such as fatalities and the graphics (when the beta wasn't crashing on me). I ended up buying the game with a few friends since I figured the game would end up just being fun with a few glitches at first. After a few weeks, I put in a request to cancel my account. There just wasn't anything new and exciting I hadn't already played in other MMOs, such as World of Warcraft or EverQuest. It's been around 6...

Torture in Tortage 0

Each new mmorpg release appears to be getting an increasing level of hype and attention, as the recently expanded market of addicts fully saturated with World of Warcraft look for a new digital drug of choice.  The most recent entry is Funcom's Age of Conan, which has received surprisingly positive reviews; as if the specialist press are in the mood to talk up the struggling PC market, or more likely they simply haven't grasped what makes a good subscription MMO.  Given how most developers seem ...

A premature launch of the most promising MMORPG in years. 0

It's been five years since Funcom started working on Age of Conan and now after many lengthy delays, AoC is finally out and ready to be judged by players and reviewers. Funcom's first MMO, Anarchy Online, had one of the worst launches in MMO history and subscriber numbers dropped faster than in any game before or after. Will Age of Conan face the same grim future as Anarchy Online or has Funcom learned their lesson? If you are familiar with the work of Robert E. Howard or Schwarzenegger's spin-...
