Rent this game if you want to make yourself miserable. I liked the story, but the gameplay is one of the worst. It is just a waste of time. I couldn't stand it, and I returned it back in the middle of the game even I was wondering what would happen next.
I would have rather heard Arnie that this guy they got as Conan. The graphics are " OK ". The fighting gets sluggisg but not BAD. The story is kind of mis-leading and almost " uninteresting ". They should have really made his " ALTERNATE GOAL MORE ABOUT HIS ORIGINS ". Its always better when the main characters entire family is slaughtered and you re out for BLOOD ".The naked women add some " ATTENTION ", but after the first few rescues they get kinda boring. Sometimes I didnt even rescue them and kept going. They stand up and tease you but you cant actually but the " BAM TO THE BOOTY ". This game is a definite GOD OF WAR rip off, but its NO GOD OF WAR. A definite rent...dont BUY THIS TITLE.
When I first saw the Conan the Barbarian, I was hooked. Here we had a boy turned warrior, turned thief, turned self made king. And minus the acting of the Gov. of california the movie was a cult classic. Now I am older and in the age where technology gets better by the minute, and I figured when i saw the title come up for the best game platform. I thought this is going to be epic. "A titan on a titan system", but much to the dismay of everything else going on in the world this game let me down. The story was weak, the game play needs more. The motions and movement of the characters were monotonous and unimaginative. Conan childhood been bigger in size and stature. There could more movement in and with the environment. I just feel like if you have such a cult classic character the possibilities would be endless. Saving the slave girls wasn't bad either but even it got old after a while. I would suggest that THQ give the game over to a better company like Rockstar, or Ubisoft. I wish this was one of those things that I could just blame Bush for but i can't. This is all the on THQ aka, " The HO's need to Quit" company.
