Age of Conan First Impressions Review

Posted Thu, May 22, 2008 by B. de la Durantaye

The massively multiplayer online game marketplace has waited for five years to see the release of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. But the wait is finally over! Thousands of individuals have flooded into Hyboria in search of unending treasures and terrifying monsters, but there are still some waiting to jump into the savage land and their nagging questions remain mostly unanswered. Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye sat down with his copy of Age of Conan and tore through the first few levels of the game in order to answer the questions of the few who are sitting on the fence. Grab a beer (or a soda if you're underage) and take a moment to enjoy Ten Ton Hammer's Age of Conan First Impressions Review!

First time participants in the world of Robert E. Howard need not worry about knowing the lore of the world beforehand. Although I've read a number of Howard's short stories, I'm nowhere near as competent with the Conan mythologies as some, and I easily fell into the twisting yarn that Funcom had produced. Even though the story may have clichéd beginnings, it's easy to feel that your character is venturing into the middle of a vast adventure where he or she is the central protagonist.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.
