Summary: This year,Age of Conan went F2p "free to play" which was a smart move by Funcom. I'm not really into F2p games due to the lackluster content..but Age of conan hangs right with the best MMO's out there even today. many people left at launch due to bugs and glitches,but today you see the playerbase rising at a steady pace.
Summary: I tried the trial edition before buying this game, and was impressed enough to want to subscribe. I had read the reviews of the game when it came out and because they were bad, stayed away. My personal opinion is this game is incredible! Beautiful graphics, awesome combat style, and a huge world to explore. Fair Warning: This is NOT a game for kids or those who are offended around nudity,blood and violence. It is rated M for Mature and deserves it. The world of Robert E.

Summary: Being now Free 2 Play online, the only thing that should be holding you back from purchasing this is your computer specs. Under 10 bucks is a steal for everything you get with it. You need atleast a 3.0ghz+ dual core and SLI x2 graphics cards to enjoy this game. World of warcraft is for KIDS, Age of Conan is for ADULTS and mature teens. There is NO comparison between to the two. Experience the world of Robert E. Howard brought to life (and death).
Well worth the price if you want to start leveling a new character.

Summary: You can't beat it now that AOC is free to play. You get a months free membership account, the in game items such as 100% XP for 12 hours. Ten for each character you make or have. And the starter weapons plus other cool things.
Summary: Speaking as a person that spent hundreds of dollars setting up a community for this game prior to its release and hundreds more after its release to support this franchise, only to meet headache, heartache and hassle from FunCom at every turn after six months I left and so did my entire guild of over 200 people. Apparently tens of thousands of others did as well.
Summary: The expansion gave me another reason to stick to the game. End game is now filled with objectives that allow you to progress your character in different ways, making it very viable and fun to play. The new advancement system and the factions give you the chance to acquire more abilities and evolve your character into a highest level. There are now goals to achieve in the pve and pvp worlds that really makes you feel you are achieving objectives.
Summary: Funcom has polished their little gem in the rough so much, it is astounding how far they have come. AOC at release was a buggy, resource hogging, shallow mess. But just like Funcom did with Anarchy Online which also launched like a lamb and turned into a lion; Conan is practicaly a new game. The release of ROTGS is the offical trumpet call for anyone who was waiting to try AOC. Conan is now ready. The DX10 graphics are amazing and much streamlined.
Summary: I play both World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online, as a very casual player. I passed up Age of Conan when it first came out two years ago because I was just getting into LotRO, and then I read about the initial AoC problems. But when Rise of the Godlslayer came out I decided to try it out, looking for a change of pace. The game installed with no problems and I have not experienced a single crash in playing probably 20 hours now.
Summary: I played at launch. There were multiple game breaking issues. I quit after 2 months. I've been reading a lot of positive reviews lately so I decided to buy the expansion and give AoC another chance after being away for nearly 2 years. I am very impressed. Nearly all of the technical issues and bugs present in 2008 have been fixed. In 3 weeks of play so far, I have not experienced a single crash to desktop.
