Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures Review for the PC

 

With gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth.

Engaging melee combat; Fairly level PvP; Excellent visuals

Dull, same-y combat for caster classses; Poor UI support for PvP; Painful system requirements; Crafting is a nightmare

It is hard to encapsulate Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures in a few paragraphs. Drawing from Robert E. Howard's most famous work - the setting and the characters - automatically paints a world of "might making right", of personalities of such...

Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures

 

We sit down to take on the newest adaptation of Robert E. Howard's barbarian stories

A few original classes ; Refreshing Destiny Quest mechanic ; More than click-and-wait combat

Unpolished late game ; Repetitive daytime quests ; Combo system weakened by lag

This is a genuine shame, because somewhere near the beginning AoC gives the feeling that it’s revolutionary. However, once you pass the infant stages of the game, play becomes all too familiar, all too repetitive and all too unpolished. We're not...

Gory business

Though that’s not to say it is without its flaws. While melee combat is an exciting affair, requiring players to keep abreast of their opponent’s guarding focus before launching strikes in one of three directions to penetrate their defences, it can...

Age of Conan Review

 

It's been more than three and a half years since Blizzard unleashed World of Warcraft, and since then no other MMORPG has even come close in terms of popularity and lasting appeal. Many games have come and gone, some of which were decent efforts that...

Age of Conan serves up satisfying action and a style all its own in an MMORPG package that's hard to resist - as long as you meet the system requirements, that is. It won't put WoW out of business, but then again, nothing will for a long time, and that...

On the tech side of things, Age of Conan will be a “Vista launch title,” meaning it will be built to use the new technologies that Vista will bring to gaming. It's not clear how these folks define “launch,” considering that the game will release more...

With AO, Funcom has already proven that story-driven play can be successful in an MMO. In Age of Conan, they plan to take even further steps to ensure total player immersion. The first and most amazing feature that will enable them to accomplish this...

Godager impressed upon us the three most important aspects of Age of Conan: combat, combat, and combat. Specifically, the game will take three approaches to battles. In one-on-one melee combat, players will fight each other in real time, using their...
