Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: As it stands, Age of Conan in this state is a hell of a lot closer to the world that people envisaged prior to the original release, and Godslayer simply fills one of the final gaps and expands horizontally at higher levels. If there ever was a game that desvered an official relaunch, this would be it.

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer Review

G4
13 July 2010
  • Summary: Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures released to widespread acclaim in 2008, though not without caveat. Can the MMORPG's first expansion, the mystical Far Eastern Rise of the Godslayer, solve Hyboria's nagging issues while living up to the original's lofty standards?
  • Pros: Ground-breaking, fantastical source material faithfully implemented, Lack of Level 80 content happily resolved, Alternate advancement, factions add playability beyond new quests
  • Cons: "Growing pains" have evolved into consistent technical problems, Epic drops far too rare, No new content for Levels 40-79

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer review

  • Excerpt: Reviewing an MMO is like being asked to step outside and put a score on the moon. No matter how long you look, you’ll never see all of it. What follows are impressions of Age of Conan’s first expansion, gleaned from a sliver of its hundreds of hours of content. With some help from Funcom I set up four alts: a level 20 and a level 40 character to attack the lower level area from both sides, and two maxed-out level 80 warriors to explore the high level zones.

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer Review

GameSpot
7 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Its 2008 launch was plagued with various fits and starts, but the grimly gorgeous Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures was a brutal and atmospheric dark pearl among fantasy online role-playing games. In the years since, developer Funcom has plugged in most of its gaps, giving the game's first expansion, Rise of the Godslayer, room to shine in its own right.
  • Pros: The new areas are gorgeous and well realized, Excellent new dungeons and boss fights, Great quest writing gets you involved, Awesome new music, Flexible alternate advancement system
  • Cons: Gaining faction favor can be a grind, Meaningful rewards are slow to come, Not much for players between levels 40 and 80

  • Excerpt: While at PAX I got a second chance to visit the most ill-conceived meeting booth of all time - you know, the one next to the Harmonix booth. This time Funcom's Craig Morrison, Executive Producer, soldiered on to tell me about the Age of Conan expansion, Rise of the Godslayer. Godslayer is set in Khitai, a Far East location from the imagination of Robert E. Howard, though Howard didn't leave much to go on.

  • Excerpt: В рецензии на Age of Conan мы поставили игре «восьмерку», но условились, что оценка выдается авансом – с учетом того, что постепенно Funcom исправит все недоделки. Благо, у сотрудников компании уже был значительный опыт в поддержке Anarchy Online , а количество проданных копий AoC позволяло надеяться на светлое будущее. Но не сложилось – проекту не помогли ни два прошедших года, ни новый директор игры.

  • Excerpt: “Funcom”, een Noors bedrijf dat tal van avonturengames ontwikkeld is ook de ontwikkelaar van “Age Of Conan: Rise Of The Godslayer”. Ze zijn ook bekend van bv. de PC-titels “The Longest Journey” en “Dreamfall” en bv. ook Anarchy Online (dat een beetje in de lijn van deze game ligt qua genre).
  • Pros: Grafisch zeer mooie game, Game zorgt voor uitbreiding in vergelijking met zijn voorganger en is zo een waardige opvolger, Leuke, typische MMORPG sfeer, Zeker een aanrader voor liefhebbers van MMORPG’s.
  • Cons: Je moet het genre en het verhaal zeker appreciëren wil je uren zoet zijn met deze game

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

  • Summary: Mit dem neuen Kontinent haben die Entwickler wieder einmal das Herz der Fans höher schlagen lassen. Mit dem Ausmerzen der Fehler haben sie sich zwar etwas Zeit gelassen, doch wie sagt man so schön, „gut Ding will Weile haben“ und genau so sehe ich das. Lieber ein bisschen länger warten aber dann zufrieden sein. Viele kleinere Macken wurden nun endlich behoben und die Questmenge deutlich angehoben.
  • Pros: großes neues Gebiet, jede Menge neuer Quests und Belohnungen
  • Cons: wenig PVP

  • Excerpt: Sorti en 2008, le MMORPG Age of Conan s'offre aujourd'hui une première extension d'inspiration asiatique, Rise of the Godslayer. C'est l'occasion rêvée pour Funcom, son éditeur, d'inviter tous les déserteurs à revenir voir ce qu'est devenu dans l'intervalle le plus célèbre prématuré du genre.

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer im Test

GameStar
11 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Das Online-Rollenspiel Age of Conan startete Mitte 2008 grandios, erlitt dann aber einen üblen Strömungsabriss. Mittlerweile hat sich Funcoms MMO längst wieder gefangen und zündet nun mit dem Addon Rise of the Godslayer den Nachbrenner. Wer jetzt nicht an Bord geht, verpasst eine wilde Reise.
  • Pros: wunderschöne Landschaften, tolle Weitsicht, lebendige Siedlungen, Gänsehaut-Soundtrack, dynamischer Musikwechsel, teils vertonte Questgeber, dramatischer Gefechtslärm, instanziertes Startgebiet, sehr gute Quest-Führung, Ausrüstung nicht kriegsentscheidend, glaubwürdige, raue Spielwelt, actionreiche Nahkämpfe, leicht erlernbares Kampfsystem, Zonen-Teleporter, Gildenstädte, abwechslungsreiche Areale, umfangreiche High-Level-Inhalte, neuer PvP-Modus, Story-Quests als Han...
  • Cons: Clipping-Fehler, NPCs werden zu spät geladen, Klassen teils unterschiedlich mächtig, englische Sprachreste, kein lückenloser Zonenwechsel, unzulängliche Benutzeroberfläche, sehr lange Ladezeiten in den Khitai-Gebieten, … mit zu wenig Quests, überladenes Token-System
