Bad

A lot worse than God of War

I only played this game for two hours tops before returning it, so, perhaps I did not get to the good parts....

I am a big fan of the God of War series and this game does not even come close. The graphics are very bad in my opinion, could have been done better for PS2. The characters look fake, the world is also poor in my opinion, looks very cartoonish.

Another huge turnoff for me was the dialog and the voice acting for Conan. Sounds like a robot with no emotion at all.

all in all I'd say to rent this game only if you're utterly bored and have played everything else, otherwise, skip it. Much better titles out there.

If you are like me, you grew up watching Conan the Barbarian, Conan the Destroyer...even Red Sonja! The Conan character was always a favorite of mine.

I also enjoy 3rd person games...FPS are fun, but to me they are all the same.

POSITIVES

Fun game, you get to kill a nice variety of different foes using a ton of different (but easy to execute) moves, 3 combinations of weapons (Dual wield, sword/Shield, 2Hand).

Graphics to me are pretty darn good...not great, but not embarrassing by any means.

sit down, relax, blow off some steam, and cut some bad guys in half (or thirds). Play the game on Easy too IMO.

NEGATIVES

Jumping, climbing around is really clumsy...and you can always tell where the heck to go. It gets frustrating staring at the screen thinking "ok, now where".

Boss Battles: First couple were fun, then they just get stupid hard...plus, the last two I played, my framerate dropped to nothing. This is when I packed the game up and shipped it back to Gamefly.

SUMMARY

Definate renter. Do not buy. But rent it, have some fun...and move on to the next game.

There’s not much that’s better than average with this game. The overall storyline is interesting, the graphics are sub-par for a Playstation 3 system, the sound is adequate, and the gameplay ranges from “pretty fun” to “downright annoying.” An average gamer will be able to complete the game in about 12 hours. An above average player or advanced gamer can probably finish in about seven hours.

Being a fan of the Cimmerian barbarian, I had high hopes for this game. I could tell, however, from the absurdly long load time at the beginning of the game that THQ was relying more on the name recognition of the character than in creating an efficient and well thought out game. As previously mentioned, the graphics would have looked pretty decent for a PS2 game, but if I had paid $60 for a new copy on the PS3, I’d have been a little upset. The in-game graphics were decent, but the cut scene animation was pretty pathetic.
