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

Conan

  • Excerpt: From THQ comes the adventures of Conan the Barbarian. The game plays a lot like God of War, from the battle system to the upgrade system. However, the combat is much more sluggish and awkward. When you first start the game, you have all the moves, all the armor, everything. However, when you unwittingly release a demon, and lose everything but your sword. You then go on a few tutorial missions before you’re tossed into the middle of battle.

  • Conclusion: Conan should’ve really tried to do something else than be something it could never live up to being. All the ingredients are there, the familiar, charismatic protagonist, sexy, swarthy maidens who look at you as though all you’d have to do is click your fingers, huge swords (no pun intended) and lots of blood and gore. However, it really does feel like I have played this game nearly three years ago and back then it was much, much better than it is now.

Half-Assed Hyboria

18 November 2007
  • Excerpt: in the time since I saw it at E3 and the game's final release. I swear it looked prettier, ran better and offered more depth than it does now, but regardless the result is the same: an abashed clone that feels like something run through Babelfish. Sure, the basic elements are still in place, right down to collecting the little red orbs that spill out of fallen enemies to upgrade the combo system, but like a copy of a copy of a copy, something is lost in the translation,...

Conan Review

GamerNode
15 November 2007
  • Excerpt: The most obvious way of starting this review would probably be to bring up the old adage “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and say something about how similar the game is to God of War. Yeah it’s similar in many regards, but instead of focusing on that, how about I focus on the game itself? Sound good? Ok! Conan is a game based on the fictional Cimmierian barbarian we all know and love. Well, maybe not everyone.

  • Excerpt: Med Croms overvågenhed skal barbaren, Conan, på jagt efter en mystisk kult, der har vækket hans vrede, hvorfor han har fattet sit sværd – for nu skal der rulle hoveder i dette hack n’ slash eventyr! Inspireret af tegneserien om Conan, skal man tæske sig vej gennem en lettere gotisk verden, hvor ordet civilisation er et sjældent ytret ord.

Conan

Level 7
22 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Habil actiongrafik fullt tillräcklig för speltypen. Designen lämnar en del att önska och variationen är inte så stor, nog är doften av Conan stark alltid. Bilduppdateringen borde varit bättre. Det går att göra enkla poänger av Conans stenålderutseende och spelets konsekvent nervärderande kvinnoporträtt, men någonstans finns det en charm även i allt det smaklösa. Stridssystemet håller spelet uppe. Några kvällars speltid med sköna strider, inte så mycket mer.
  • Pros: Stridssystemet, Blodet
  • Cons: Designen, Bristen på variation, Bilduppdateringen

Conan - Recensione

Everyeye Network
20 October 2007
  • Summary: Un vero peccato che Conan non possa ritagliarsi uno spazio più incisivo nel panorama videoludico moderno a causa della programmazione grossolana e dei piccoli difetti di contorno che asserragliano il gameplay. La struttura di gioco, infatti, è comunque indovinata: riprende gli insegnamenti dei capisaldi del genere ma non si ferma: cerca anzi di esplorare nuove vie, sia dal punto di vista prettamente ludico (l'introduzione delle counter e il parco mosse molto nutrito),...
