Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

Strategy Informer

  • 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.

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

  • Conclusion: A mammoth update that caters for mid to high level players. Memorable new lands and quests make up for the lack of PvP.

Despite a touch of monotony, Age of Conan's atmospheric first expansion is an absolute delight.

  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

Technical issues notwithstanding, the violently rewarding Age of Conan is one of the finest online RPGs available.

  • Summary: As imagined by developer Funcom, the land of Cimmeria's lush green landscapes are dotted with impaled corpses upon which crows roost and flap their wings, apparently pleased with both the height of their perch and the scent of death.
  • Pros: Mature, brilliantly imagined game world is a pleasure to explore, Exciting combat keeps you constantly involved, Many quests are powerfully written and have emotional impact, Varied classes make both team and solo play equally viable, You can tear a man's heart out of his chest and eat it
  • Cons: A large number of server- and client-side bugs, Lacks noncombat activities that would help mix things up, Various pacing issues and other minor flaws

  • 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...

  • Summary: Souvenez-vous... Il y a maintenant deux ans de cela, Age of Conan sortait sur nos machines pour notre plus grand plaisir. Résolument décalé par rapport aux autres MMORPG, AoC de son petit nom tentait de séduire les foules à l'aide de son univers résolument mature.

  • 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
