In a world full of halo's and Grand Theft Auto's it's a strange thing to see an old school hack and slasher like Conan rear it's gnarled old head. Being a fan of classic chop 'em ups, like Golden Axe and Splatterhouse, I have a place in my heart for such titles, as I'm sure a good few of you who where around at the time have, but like I said; with the vast array of quality, varied gaming experiences out there it is a wonder to see something that's about 15 years out of it's comfort zone still floating to the surface.
Wherever you read a review of this game you are going to see comparisons to God of War and that is not without justification because A.) god of war and the brilliant GoW2 took this genre to a whole new level on a console that doesn't carry half as much heft as it's next gen brothers, and B.) Conan tries to imitate it, but in a much more watered down fashion and not with nearly enough polish to help it snatch the crown from Kratos' shiny noggin.
So this isn't sounding very positive is it, but there are some redeeming features which I attempt shall list below:
- the animation for the hugely (and I emphasize the word 'hugely') gruesome and violent moves is top notch, cue tons of slow-mo blood spurting, intestine flinging madness and bodies blitzed in twain (both ways). This makes the moves enormously satisfying to pull off - although the over the top violence will only sate the 12 year old inside of us for a little while and soon it just becomes part and parcel.
- The combat system is solid enough and moves can be pulled of with ease and precision.
- The achievements are pretty cool and quite fun to unlock (dismember 100 enemies etc.

OK, God of War will never be developed for the 360. Deal with it. I have finished GOW 1&2 on my PS2 before selling it and upgrading to 360, and they are awesome- but they are gone. Conan is not as pretty, but it lacks NOTHING in gameplay in comparison to Kratos' adventures, in fact, the fighting system is better balanced and more involving, with the ability to buy, and then master new combos, and use many different weapons in different combinations. Go into a fight with a battle axe and short sword and watch the limbs fly in glorious bullet time- superb! The puzzles are straight forward, but then, Kratos wasnt exactly Einstein either. The cut scenes work well, and it sounds like Ron Perlman did the voice of Conan. The story arc really feels like a Howard story, and I get the impression that the developers are fans of the written Conan, and that shines through. If you love Conan stories, if you remember Golden Axe fondly, if you thought God of War Kicked ass but have moved on from PS2, if you just like a really good fun game period. then you will not be let down by this Cimmerian.

Bought the game yesterday - and it is absolutely fantastic. I am really enjoying the game. It is very difficult to prise yourself away from the console to do anything else!

It reminds me of a favorite game on the PC called 'Blade of Severance' The graphics are not in the same league as 'Gears of War' or a 'Killzone' but they are still beautiful. As an owner (and fan of) God of war 1 & 2, in my opinion they are better. The higher resolution makes the difference, and the makers have captured the ambience and atmosphere of the Conan world perfectly. The audio is very good too.

I don't think the Videos online do this game justice at all. I've played it a Samsung 226CW PC LCD screen and on an Epson Projector and the game looks stunning on both.

Admittedly, the cut scenes are it's weakest part especially if you were to compare them to Heavenly sword but they do the job of progressing the story. The game-play itself is superb. Arms, legs, and yes Heads too all come flying off sometimes in slowmo when you perfect a particular attack. There are loads of cool moves to learn as well.

The other thing I really like about the game compared to God of war, is that I prefer the weapons used. You can use Two-handed swords and pole-blades, single swords or axes with a shield or two swords. The bloody combat seems more realistic than when you are swinging two blades around on the end of chains. You can see more of the action during close combat. Plus they have modelled the Conan character brilliantly.

This is one of my favourite games at the moment..

I love all things Conan which is why I bought this game. I suspected it was going to be a turkey but I was pleasantly suprised. Don't get me wrong, this game isn't going to win any awards for innovation. It's a pretty simple affair, the gameplay mostly consisting of hacking your way through hordes of mooks, but it's just done so well. The combat system works very well and it's extremely satisfying when you manage to pull off one of the spectacularly gory finishing moves. The graphics are good (although nothing amazing) and the sound is evocative (but can get a bit repetetive).

In short, this game feels very much like an "old school" hack and slash game and probably shouldn't be as fun as it is, but there's something about it I just love.
