I played it. I thought it was fun. Not great, but definitely worth a rental.

I might check this out when it gets a price drop. It is a big God of War clone.

All it would take is for one parent to have a duck fit and Conan would become one of the hottest selling games this year.

Demo was alright, but the game felt (and actually looked) inferior to God of War. On one hand, why not steal from the best, but on the other, it didn't exactly feel fresh to me.

Agree with most above. Demo was ok. For me, not a buy but definitely a rental.

I'm planning on picking it up pretty soon - the demo was great -- also featuring Claudia Black. People bitch and moan that it's a God o'War clone, but if you (like me) haven't played those - since I never owned a PS2 - it doesn't really mean anything.

It feels like a nice hack and slash - sounds a little short though - that'll add some variety to my RPG/FPS gaming right now, especially since Mercs 2 and NG2 are a ways away still.

I'm glad I don't have the baggage of God Of War. People just can't let things stand on their own.

Anyway, I went into gamestop and when I asked about Conan the guys at the counter gave me a free pre-order figurine. I told them that I wasn't buying Conan now but they said they had too many so they just put them out for people to take. Then they told me to take 2. Well, hell...I never say no to "FREE".


...but then I ended up buying Conan anyway. But it's all good. I'm gonna have fun with this and Jericho

FYI: There is a $5 off coupon from Best Buy for Conan in the latest issue of OXM (December 2007, #77). It doesn't expire until 1-31-08.

So far it's been pretty fun. Like I said, I'm not stuck on the ghost of God of War so this has been a enjoyable new experience for me. The graphics are nice and the moves are cool. I kinda wish they would have given more control over the camera location but it's no big deal.

I thought the controls were clumsy and he just didn't move fast enough. And the graphics seemed to be like PS2 quality. I'll pass.

I just watched the video review of Conan on gametrailers.com. This game couldn't be a more blatant God of War rip-off if it tried.

The video review showed sections where you have to quickly tap a button to open a door, opening chests and tons of red power orbs come out, quicktime events where you press a button in time, etc. I don't think I saw a single original idea that wasn't stolen from God of War.

P.S. The video review showed a lot of female nudity too.

Re: Conan xbox360

Well 3 years later (and after Ive owned this for over a year) I finally played and beat this game. It was a huge mistake playing it on hard as its a very cheap game. Once youre getting hit you cant block or roll!!! The best thing was Perlman and the worse: ABSOLUTE SHITTY LONG HORRIBLE BOSS BATTLES!!!

Re: Conan xbox360

Lucky you man. I was on Normal and having a great time until I got to the 2nd Bonecrusher(the Minotaur fucker with the Lions). I was stuck for a long time and just gave up. I traded it in.

Had it not been for that Boss I think I would've loved that game.

A friend of mine gave me his copy, I played it for seven months until one day he showed up at my door and wanted it back!

Dude, that guy was a cakewalk compared to the finale, but yea he was a bitch. The final boss took me 2 HOURS alone because he had 6 stages!!! THats right, 6 life bars and different bullshit tasks. I read a review and a FAQ after the game... both said this boss is the worst they have EVER seen in gaming

What really sucks is that you have to baby step EVERY boss. Hit it twice than run. Whoever designed this game needs a good case of herpes!

The reason I played it now was I wanted a God of War fix... this didnt help

Re: Conan xbox360

Hrmmm, and I was just thinking about my sealed copy that I bought like a year or two ago. Maybe I'll go play something like Condemned/Condemned 2 instead . *sigh*, why can't somebody make a good Conan game, it shouldn't be hard...but yet the 360 game and the MMO have both sucked the big one. All it needs is fighting and wenches for pete's sake.
