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: 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

Level 7
22 October 2007
  • Summary: Återupplivandet av 80-talsikonen Conan – av många förknippad med Arnold Schwartznegger men här mer inspirerad av Marvel-serien – skulle ha kunnat gå hur som helst. Men trots smaklöshet och muskelromantik är spelet Conan att räkna med. Åtminstone för den actionhungrige.
  • Pros: Stridssystemet, Blodet
  • Cons: Designen, Bristen på variation, Bilduppdateringen

  • Conclusion: Ahhh... Conan... Jeg vet ikke om jeg skal le eller grÃ¥te. Det er som en dÃ¥rlig film med 18-Ã¥rsgrense som du sneik deg til Ã¥ se en gang du sov over hos en kompis nÃ¥r du var 13. Noe med Dolph Lundgren, eller kanskje Jean-Claude Van Damme. Mye blod og vold, litt pupper og elendig skuespill.
  • Pros: Harry, tidvis utrolig festlig, morsomme komboer, fine animasjoner pÃ¥ Conan, og man kan ane et godt kampsystem der inne ett eller annet sted.
  • Cons: Igjen, harry, elendig design, fremstÃ¥r som uferdig, lange lastetider, dÃ¥rlig stemmeskuepsill og lyd forøvrig, repeterende og ingen nye ideer.

8 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Jag är arg, svettig, burdus och har en bröstkorg som mäter samma storlek som fronten pÃ¥ en medelstor bil. Jag gillar höftskynken, vÃ¥ld och avhuggna kroppsdelar, jag badar i blod, snyter mig i djurhud och Ã¥drorna ringlar sig likt ormar under den svettiga huden. Kort och gott, jag är Conan .
  • Pros: UnderhÃ¥llande vÃ¥ld, Conan är snyggt animerad
  • Cons: Idéfattigt upplägg, extremt enformigt, bökigt spelsystem

  • Summary: Berättarrösten är dov. Han talar långsamt och ödesmättat och med uppenbart Bengt Magnusson-komplex. – Denne mörke gigant var så fantastiskt stark… han var gigantisk. Och fantastisk, sade jag det?
