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.

  • 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. 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.

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer (PC) / Test

4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Wir schreiben 2008. Age of Conan schürt Erwartungen, die es nicht halten kann. Ihr steigt ein in eine Welt mit spannender Geschichte, innovativem Kampfsystem, genialer Grafik und zahlreichen Quests. Die Euphorie hält aber nur bis Level 20. Besonders der mangelhafte End-Content kostet Funcom zahlreiche Spieler.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Med välbehövligt kött på benen är Age of Conan nu redo att ta sig an spelare som ett mycket större spel. Nyfikna har nu större anledning än någonsin att ge sig in i Arnold Schwarzeneggers barbariska tid och se för sig själva alla de äventyr som kan tänkas vänta en man i höftskynke. Med tvåhandssvärdet i hand och äventyr i sikte visar Age of Conan att showen just har börjat.
  • Pros: • Kompletterar originalspelet väl • Nya världarna är otroligt snygga
  • Cons: • Saknar mer nytt innehåll för karaktärsskapande • Nya quests är inte tillräckligt intressanta

  • 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

  • Summary: I 2008 udkom Age Of Conan Hyborian Adventures, et online rollespil der på mange måder adskilte sig fra konkurrenterne - på både godt og ondt. Spillet indførte et unikt kampsystem, der i langt større grad involverede spilleren og injicerede en højere grad af action ind i genren. Her var det pludselig dig selv, som skulle svinge sværdet og tage stilling til, hvor du ville angribe, og dig selv, der med skjoldet hævet skulle forvare dig så godt som muligt.
