Conan Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Although it can prove mildly entertaining at points, Conan ultimately ends up feeling like an uninspired clone of Sony’s superior God of War series.
  • Pros: Exceptionally brutal counter-kills, Sweeping orchestral score
  • Cons: Seriously lacking in the graphics department, Gameplay becomes repetitive towards the second half, Cringe-worthy dialogue

  • Excerpt: “Crush me with your love!” proclaims a topless maiden as I rip her free from her evil captor’s chains. You won’t be the only one to expect a filthy sex act to follow but Conan being the family friendly experience it is, only rewards you with a bit of hanky panky and titillation. Conan is a typical 18 rated action game packed to the brim with gore, maimed corpses, filth and relentless killing; this is a 13 year old sadist’s dream videogame.

  • Conclusion: The biggest problem with this game is its length. I finished the game in around 6 hours or so, playing on the normal difficulty level. Unless you get stuck majorly during a boss battle you should be able to beat it in around the same amount of time. There are no real benefits to replaying this title, although there are unlockables, there not all that great unless you’re the kind of player who likes unlocking everything.

  • Excerpt: Conan , from THQ and developer Nihilistic, is a brutal action game where players take the role of the mightiest warrior ever, Conan the Barbarian! Similar to the acclaimed God of War , Conan features epic boss battles, a variety of deadly skills to master, and hordes of enemies to fight your way through. With these similarities you’re probably wondering if Conan can stand up to God of War ?

  • Excerpt: " Is that the new God of War game? " asks a visitor to the office last week. " No ," I reply. " It's the Conan game. It does look a lot like God of War though ." For anyone who knows their video game characters, the differences between Kratos and Conan are huge, but throw the game in front of a part-time gamer and the reaction is to be expected.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, the God of War has upstaged Conan, and there’s very little that can be done to separate both games. If only the developers tried to raise the bar and do add a couple of features you couldn’t do in the Kratos game it would have been a more rewarding experience, but instead they just chose to mirror it.

Conan (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Conan was made for the God of War treatment. While other games of this type resort to some sort of hocus-pocus to sell their protagonists' inhuman fighting prowess, Robert E. Howard's Cimmerian superman requires no such artifice. Raised amidst war and brutality in an inhospitable landscape, adeptly savaging throngs of lesser men is as second nature to the barbarian as checking e-mail is to us.

  • Summary: Conan's latest adventure may have plenty of topless women, but that doesn't make it exciting.
  • Pros: Combat system relies more on timing than button mashing; character models ook great; fights are bloody and full of limb removal; weapon system is great fun; stays true to the feel of the original Robert E. Howard stories.
  • Cons: Sound glitches abound; serious clipping issues; made me sick of seeing topless "maidens"; boss fights end up as more of a chore than anything; storyline feels more like a bad movie; too short; no replay value.
