    Definitely a disappointment. Nice amount of and plenty of attack moves. Gets very repetitive, especially boss battles where you have 10 parts of same thing. Enemies and bosses and chain stun kill you which is stupid and cheap. Platforming and fixed camera angle are awful. Plenty of places are confusing as where to go or what to do. Just sloppy game design all around.

    This game has SICK animation, and gameplay controls... It's like driving a little GI Joe action figure that does everything you tell it flawlessly. I can see how some might think the high production value of this game is an indicator of its flaws, but I see it as an indicator of its greatness. The only thing this has in common with GoW is that its a Video game, about a character Kratos was inspired from, and has floating orbs to heal/give you exp... and the magic, which shouldn Collapse

  1. On the one hand it's highly entertaining and almost obscenely violent and crude, but for a next-gen title with a next-gen price tag it doesn't quite deliver.
  2. Conan is at its best visceral and furious fun with limbs and heads flying. Unfortunately, the adrenaline level drops when the speed slows down on harder adversaries and when the enemies do not have limbs to detach or heads to pop. Also, boss fights tend to follow the same pattern too much. Still, it is worth the time and effort. Experimenting with different moves never gets old. [Oct 2007]
  3. If your blood pressure can withstand the beatings that may seem unfair, there's a lot to like about Conan's combat system and adventure. [Nov 2007, p.140]
