Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures Combo Combat system recently made MMORPG.com's 2008 Readers Choice Awards: Most Innovative Features list. The article itself covers some of the most innovative features of various games throughout 2008. A very good read for any gamer.
Whether you loved it, hated it, or fell somewhere in between, there is little arguing that the combat system in Funcoms Age of Conan is one of the most unique and innovative designs released in 2008.
For those who might not be aware, Age of Conan employs a combat system that requires players to enter a directional sequence in order successfully complete many of their abilities. This means that while most MMOs on the market require a single button to activate any attack, AoC attempts to simulate some of the chaos and attention to detail required in real combat.
