    It’s not perfect (and carries many of the warts that are now tropes of the survival genre), but I’ve yet to find myself bored or disillusioned with any part of the experience. Like any game, Conan Exiles is best played with friends (and this game is AMAZING with a group of idiot friends). A battle to the death with 6 naked cannibals and a giant tiger is hands down the best gaming experience I’ve had in 2018.

    Conan Exiles is a great survival MMO with an interesting world to explore. On the the other hand, its scale and population density do not allow for serious PvP-wars.

    The game is full of all sorts of flaws and bugs, but thanks to deep mechanics and vast world it’s an enjoyable survival both in multiplayer and played solo (but less so in the latter case). [07/2018, p.52]

    The combat is mediocre and in some ways this still feels like it needs more time in the oven, but those who forgive these shortcomings can have a lot of fun in Conan Exiles.

    Conan Exiles captures the brutality of the source material, but weak combat and grindy crafting make it an often slow and arduous survival game.

    Conan Exiles is loaded with possibilities and danger. But the poor online performance and a long list of glitches are currently killing the game, which begs for fixes.

    Ultimately, Conan Exiles is one of the most unsatisfying games I’ve ever played. Its crafting and resource systems may be dense enough that the ultra-patient could find something to enjoy here, but anyone else would likely walk away with their hands thrown up in defeat. The mind-numbing tedium of harvesting resources, woefully boring combat, and a slew of bugs left me feeling completely underwhelmed and unimpressed when it was all said and done.

    Great game, smooth after a not too long early access period. More than doubled the original map and much better combat!

    Conan Exiles in 2019 is the better ARK: Survival Evolved!
    Especially with friends on a private server it's awesome! Since the early access
    Conan Exiles in 2019 is the better ARK: Survival Evolved!
    Especially with friends on a private server it's awesome! Since the early access the game is'nt the same.
    The combination of fighting, building, leveling, discovering, crafting and "taiming" of animals and slaves is very unique.

    + grafics, sound, performance and gameplay are quite awesome
    + unique Features
    + big world with varied biomen
    + modfriendly
    + easy to learn, "hard" to master
    + clocked purge-waves brings dynamics in the sandbox

    - private 4Players-Server had once to twice a day short breaks from 10 to 20 minutes
    - less content for more than 90-100 hours (need more dungeons, discoverable regions, more taimalbe animals)
    - cosmetics are late endgame-content- too late

    I would play more, bute without friends with motivation :D is it not the same. A big Add-On would be nice.

    The game is still incomplete and full of bugs. Also the combat system is a bloody mess that makes PVP a horrible experience. In addition toThe game is still incomplete and full of bugs. Also the combat system is a bloody mess that makes PVP a horrible experience. In addition to that the PVE Content is way too easy and offers no real endgame content. 'Lategame' bosses can be killed easily in earlier stages of the game. Overall the game seems way too unfinished to be released. Only positive thing is the really good artwork, world, character and item design. About a year ago Conan Exiles hat huge potential but sadly could not keep up to it yet. Expand

    This title will fade away because solo play hits a wall very quickly. Anything beyond building your base looks to be exclusively co-op.

    Fun for a weekend. After that you are out of things to do. Resource gathering is incredibly repetitive and you need the same resources forFun for a weekend. After that you are out of things to do. Resource gathering is incredibly repetitive and you need the same resources for just about everything in the game. So you'll be gathering stone, metal, and wood for ~75-80% of your playtime. There is no real sense of progression. Yes, you get better armor/weapons/gathering tools, but they wear out just about as fast. As you upgrade, the mobs you fight take about the same amount of time as the mobs you fought with the lesser gear. Combat does not change - unless you change your weapon. If you change what weapon you use, there are different animations and minor benefits/detriments, but it is still pretty much a click fest. No combos or strategy. Just mash the left mouse button until the big thing is dead (with a few exceptions).

    I don't play PvP. This game is probably catering to that crowd. PvE content is relatively shallow and not solo-able without cheats.

    There is full nudity, though. So, there's another crowd pleaser.

    I have been experiencing crashes ("Fatal Error") very often, once every hour to as often as within minutes, and so far nothing I've triedI have been experiencing crashes ("Fatal Error") very often, once every hour to as often as within minutes, and so far nothing I've tried helped. I've brought this up at official forums and while the community has been helpful the devs have not addressed the issue for several months now despite multiple posts. Recently I've learned that my video card is considered low priority as well. With heavy heart I am changing my positive review to a negative one in protest. Expand
