Reviewed by Simon Priest, he wrties:
"Funcom bring Robert E. Howard's world of Conan to the massively multiplayer masses – stepping into the Hyborian realms you soon learn that the riddle of steel won't be enough to keep your head.
If you've ever read a Conan tale or seen the films you know the age in which Conan lives is far from enlightenment. You'll also have noticed its non-to-shy to dish out the mature content and in that spirit Funcom has embraced its darker and grittier qualities. Cussing, scantily clad 'maidens' and decapitation of one's opponents name but a few of the sinful revels, this is no online preteen braves RPG – this is Age of Conan."
