    A tower defense game combines with classic RTS feelings. Conan Unconquered does not look so attractive nowadays, it needs more enlightened ideas to impress gamers.

    A scrappy and bloody brilliant strategy game that builds further upon the idea of survival strategy, Conan Unconquered doesn’t stray too far from its primary influence but it does offer plenty of unique substance that gives it its very own flavour. Now that, is what is best in life.

    The core of the tower defense strategy mix is demanding and entertaining.

    A capable yet uncreative and unimpressive game that feels straight out of the early 2000s.

    Conan Unconquered’s slow-moving economy that always seems to lag behind the relentless waves of enemies is frustrating and the fact that there are only two playable heroes — a third is available behind a paywall at launch — and no story or campaign make the game feel like it’s incomplete or at the very least a meager package for the price. Coupled with the repetitious nature of the environments and matches, the uninspired voice work and shallow gameplay, Conan Unconquered is a disappointing hybrid of RTS and tower defense that squanders the Conan brand once again.

    Conan Unconquered is too empty and lifeless, not to mention unoriginal. It feels like a mod rather than a full-fledged game from an experienced studio.
  7. 30
    Not your typical real-time strategy game, but despite a few interesting ideas this shallow husk of a game feels almost barbarically simple.

    + The music sets the comfortable Conan wibe. + First time trying the game I thought it was kind of easy... until wave 16!
    Brilliant game!

    + The music sets the comfortable Conan wibe.
    + First time trying the game I thought it was kind of easy... until wave 16! So easy to learn and hard to master.
    + Instruction in the game are simple and easy to understand and gets me up and running.
    + With all the waves you are constantly under pressure, and if you are ahead you can scout and level your hero on the map.
    ++ Just loving the game!

Fun upgrade system and a variety of units and buildings. It is a simple style of game without some of the flash of alot of modern titles of similar stripes. However this is exactly the game someone like me wants. If you like Peteroglyph games then you will like this game. This appeals to a specific audience of people and you really have to already feel like you want this game before getting it. If you read other reviews and it puts you off then you may not be the type of person who will want this game. Expand

    Conan Unconquered is a good game that has a lot going for it that has been a slow burn for me.

    Conan Unconquered is a good game that has a lot going for it that has been a slow burn for me.

    My first 5+ hours into Conan I would say were average at best. The game did not hook me and honestly does not do a good job in teaching you the game mechanics. However, once you push through that point, I think you will find the game very entertaining and I quite like the challenge it presents.

    The Good: In-Depth Skill tree, music, sound and gameplay that features co-op play.
    The Bad: No campaign or story, complicated skill tree, takes longer than normal to figure this game out.

    Most people who put in too little time I could see walking away unimpressed. However just like anything, once you start to do something well, that's when things get fun and Conan Unconquered is no different.

    CU is not a bad strategy - tower defend game, but it's not good enough.
    - The game developers are stupid, they made a terrible autosave option which interupts any player actions/commands and unable to turn off.
    - The "Battle Standard" building is also stupid. Instead of expand a square area, it just makes a haft/quarter of a round area. It could be better if they made this thing work like the Pylon of Protoss in StarCraft.
    - They should make "Upgrading icons" at the top of the buildings visible whether the match is pausing or not.
    - I don't know if this is a bug or not. After placing some building in Green Area in Game Pause, only few buildings were contructing and most of other building weren't. It's like they limit the amount of buidling to build in Game Pause.

    Conan game titles is one of the worst RPG and Tower Denfend that were made.

    Old dated graphics looks like a game that was made in 2004 and doesn't have any campaign mode and of course the Denuvo garbage (The DRM ofOld dated graphics looks like a game that was made in 2004 and doesn't have any campaign mode and of course the Denuvo garbage (The DRM of greedy awful companies). This is an incredibly boring game you basically only fight enemy waves and that's it. Game feels lacking and unpolished and everything is kinda repetitive. This core gameplay is more about management and less about strategy or about tactics. If you are looking for a good strategy game then look somewhere else don't waste money for this trash Expand

That's my opinion. Very poor graphics on GTX 2080 Ti, looks like the game from the past, whole screen is milky. Sound and music are terrible. The environment in the game is not worth a penny. I do not advise anyone who has a brain, to buy this crap game. Expand
