Is it worth it? I played the demo. It looks terrible, but the combat was kinda fun. Does it hold up for even a couple of hours?
On sale in XBOX Games on Demand $3.99
I picked it up for $20 a couple years ago. Played through the entire game and enjoyed it. It's a God of War knock off, very competent. No brainer if you like this type of game. It was worth $20 to me, I'd pull the trigger for $3.99 in a millisecond.
I really enjoyed this game when I got it a few years ago. Although I had never played a God of War game so I guess that probably meant I enjoyed it more than I would have done with that perspective. But if you're looking into mindlessly bashing dudes then it'd worth picking up.
Hmm, still on the fence, but some joker at Gamespot gave it an ok review, so maybe I'll get it. http://www.gamespot.com/conan/reviews/conan-review-6181674/
Game starts off good enough but gets real stale near the end kinda of like Heavenly Sword in that regard, just not enough incentive to mix up your moves when the same two combo's will get you through the game.
I would recomend picking up Forgont Sands for five bucks. The combat like Conan get's stale but the enviormental puzzels and platforming are fun throughout.
I got this game cheap. I don't generally buy a game because it is cheap, but I kind of dig Conan so I snagged it. I am not enjoying it much at all. First of all it is very linear. No exploring a wide open 3D world. You are forced down a specific path and you stick to it. There is not even a way to move the camera around to check things out. A default camera and a default path to follow, feels very restricting, Ugh!
I am trying to get into the combat, really there is not much else to get into. The graphics are sub par in my opinion and the story is just meh. The combat is okay I guess, nothing too deep unless you consider hitting square, square,square, triangle, triangle deep. It is just not a high production game, very mediocre in fact in every way that matters to me.
If you are looking for a cool sword and board hack and slash cut 'em up I would recommend Viking Battle for Asgard over this, even if you are a Conan fan. Viking is actually a pretty good game, much better than Conan.
Here is an interesting tid bit in light of the recent THQ business, Conan was a THQ published game.
