A great fun game - if you dont expect too much,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conan (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
An ideal game for a relaxed evening with a friend and some drinks.
The game is simply entertaining. Does not have the complexity and strass-factor of some other games in this kind (eg. DMC Series or Ninja Gaiden), and that is what makes it perfect in my opinion. It is really a lot of fun hack and slash your way through the levels.
Every player will soon find their favorite weapons-setup and it is a motivating experience to learn new attacks (by gaining xp-points).
These new moves are not simply gimmicks; they should be used in a well controlled fashion: Variations of e.g. rotating combos are ideal to fight your way through hordes of smaller or enemies, while other more powerful attacks will deal with tougher opponents or bosses. The latter ones demand a good portion of timing and a well rounded combination of hacking and movement.
The special appeal of this game, besides its very well presented barbarian setting, is its strait-forward style.
The game does not try to be anything more than a fun hack and slash game.
If you do not expect a new-standard of gaming experience from this game and enjoy the "brutal" setting it will make you very happy, keep you motivated and you will receive good value for your money.
