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.
Leave this game to the 360 and PC! This port is so bad, they didn't even take the time to take advantage of just ONE of the PS3's processors. Looks like a PS2 game, no correction some PS2 games are better looking than this!
The graphics are just terrible. How can something like this get released on the PS3, for shame. The game play gets old fast. There are stupid little on screen patterns that you have to follow, if you don't you die and start all over again.
The only saving thing about this game is the fact you can chop people in half and such, but that gets old fast! Rent it if you have nothing else to do. Finished it in two days by the way, short and stupid, and a complete bite of God of War!
This is your typical run of the mill slasher style video game, alla God of War, Heavenly Sword, etc. Now, grant it this game was not nearly as good as those other two I mentioned but the gameplay is very similar. Every enemy has a certain combination of moves they perform that you must learn to evade then go in for a few quick strikes until after a few of these strikes they are dead.
The finishing moves in this game were pretty slick and there are so many combinations of moves it's ridiculous. You have to unlock almost all of them though.
The graphics were poor during the cutscenes but the actual gameplay was not nearly as bad, in fact it was pretty good.
Overall, it was a fun game that just got a little boring after awhile so I never did finish it. Definitely worth a rental.
