Conan Exiles Review – Barbaric Fun

The first challenge you’ll have to overcome in Conan Exiles is the download. For this review, I was offered a download code which clocked in at around 50 GB. Even with good, uninterrupted connection that’s still a few hours before you can actually play the game. Once you finally enter the Exiled Lands, though, you’ll find a survival game with a heavy leaning on RPG adventures.

Because of the recent incredible popularity of survival games, only now waning thanks to the breakthrough success of the Battle Royale genre, the marketplace is completely oversaturated. Most games tried to build on unique gimmicks or mechanics to try and stand above the crowd, and Conan Exiles is no different. As you may have guessed, the game is based on the Conan: The Barbarian, the universe created by writer Robert E. Howard almost a century ago.

Despite its issues and flaunts, I couldn't keep myself away from Conan Exiles. Its meaty combat, huge map and nicely paced objectives made the game morish, even when I got lost (in the menus, not the jungles).

Pros

  • Map is huge
  • Grind doesn't feel like a grind
  • Combat fits the barbaric nature well
  • Monsters and weapons are nicely varied
  • Lots of adventures to be had

Cons

  • Frame rate and lag issues are really annoying
  • The game just doesn't look very good
  • Menus aren't very easy to understand

Score: 7.8/10
