  • 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 ?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: If you liked God of War then Conan is worth checking out. This game has an easy learning curve and a story that should please fans of the Conan series. Conan is a clone to God of War and it can be seen throughout the entire game, but that is alright since Conan is fun to play, they took all the great aspects of that game and turned it into their own.

Conan review (PS3)

  • Excerpt: You'll realize that early on, as you're ascending a crumbling tower in your quest to destroy a rampaging dragon. Along the way, you'll face his fire-breathing muzzle at several turns. Each time, the strategy is the same: dodge his attacks, then retaliate with some sword strokes. After several such instances, the developers threw in a little variety, and in the end it's not your sword that spells the dragon's doom but rather the available architecture.

  • Excerpt: Carving its way onto the Xbox 360 and PS3, Conan’s latest title comes with all the violence and sexuality you’d expect from Hyboria’s famous barbarian. Hacking off limbs, conquering ancient monsters, and rescuing topless females, Conan’s latest exploits follow closely in the footsteps of his flicks and action games like God of War. Is it all too familiar or does this warrior stand on his own?

24 October 2007
  • Summary: There might not be a direct connection, but it's hard to imagine the God of War series existing as it does without Conan the Barbarian preceding it. At their hearts, both are brutally violent and dark tales of swords and sorcery, so it's not entirely surprising that developer Nihilistic has taken extensive inspiration from God of War in developing a game based on Robert E. Howard's iconic adventurer.
  • Pros: Captures the Conan feel, Combat is fantastically brutal, Incredibly fitting orchestral soundtrack
  • Cons: Lots of chunky-looking textures, Ron Perlman not a great fit as Conan, Jumping sequences are clunky
