"Is that the new God of War game?" - Pro-G's Conan Review

In their review of the Conan, Pro-G gave the game a 7/10 and had this to say:

"'Is that the new God of War game?' asks a visitor to the office last week. 'No,' I reply. 'It's the Conan game. It does look a lot like God of War though.' For anyone who knows their video game characters, the differences between Kratos and Conan are huge, but throw the game in front of a part-time gamer and the reaction is to be expected. And it's probably not something THQ has tried to avoid either, given God of War's popularity and the lack of a next-gen follow-up on the horizon."

"Conan is an extremely tricky game to judge. On the one hand it's highly entertaining and almost obscenely violent and crude, but for a next-gen title with a next-gen price tag it doesn't quite deliver. By no means is this the perfect answer to the current lack of a next-gen God of War, but as something to tide you over, it serves its purpose better than anyone probably predicted."

The story is too old to be commented.

It's a shame such a talented developer (Nihilistic) were forced to rush Conan and have it completed this year instead of 2008 (as originally planned). Still going to pick up this title.

I guess 2008 was just too long to wait to start seeing a real return on their investmtent, but that just seems silly now doesn't it? I guess it never really hurts to emulate Kratos and the whole God of War motif.

"To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

Atleast the 360 will have something like GOW and a hack n slash action game. 2bad they cant play HS thou becuase that game rules.
