With the right eye players will find a magical world full of rich lore, gruesome gore and plenty of barely clothed wenches. What more could you truly ask for?

This is it. This may be my favorite game of all-time. It is definitely up there on the list of all-time greats. Why do I like this so much? For starters I am a huge Conan fan. The first movie (the only movie) the graphic novels, I own all the original Robert E. Howard stories. So as you can see I'm a big fan. So am I just a fanboy that would thumbs up this game no matter what? Quite the opposite. I would generally be over critical when it comes to a game made of my favorite fantasy world but they nailed it. Better than I could have ever imagined. Here is why I like it so much...

- Best classes in any MMORPG hands down. Goes far beyond human, elf, orc, etc..
- The music to each zone is like the best hollywood soundtrack for a classic movie. Outstanding.
- Combat feels fun. Doing combos and executing fatalities has not grown stale after close to 150 hours of gameplay.
- Graphics and world layout are wonderful. From the swaying of the grass in the grasslands to the snow-tipped mountains of Cimmeria to the deserts of Stygia and everything else. The animals that roam the countryside that prey on each other to the huge capital city. The world is very much alive and fun to traverse.
- The brutality and mature theme. I wanted a rated R MMORPG. They delivered.

I could go on but you get it. Here is another reason I love this game. I have played every asian kung fu themed game from here to the great wall and none have done it for me until I played the AoC expansion "Rise of the Godslayer" and made it to the far east in Khitai. The area is so well done. The questing is fun. The dungeons are awesome and very challenging. Rather than offering a very family friendly colorful crouching tiger experience, AoC offers a wicked 36 Chambers type experience that I was missing in all other asian games.

It is not the perfect game by any means. On PvP servers gankers are everywhere. The apprentice system is nice but if not used, when in a group with a higher level character it doesn't encourage team work. It is an older game so the player pop is lower than in some new games so finding dungeon mates can be tough at times. Definitely get with a good guild. It is F2P so players can buy top level gear if they want. If that bugs you.

But the Pros outweigh the Cons heavily IMO.

If you are looking for an adult, low-fantasy, brutal, beautiful, vast open world with open world PvP (or not depending on your server) AoC is one of the greatest games ever made in this guy's humble opinion. Good day to you!

I've read a lot of reviews and I will say afew things in regards to my own personal view.

If you like the Conan universe, you will love this game. It's very well represented, and the musical ambiance is spectacular.

If you are one of those storyline players, that loves main quests you will definitely enjoy this.

Now on to my main points:

- Huge world
-RPHEAVEN. If you like RP'ing look on google and find a large RP guild. RP in Conan is awesome.
-did I mention RP? I thought I would since nobody ever mentions that aspect of the games.
- classes are great.
- armors and mounts etc look great.

Overall I recommend this.

Yes a sub makes it even more entertaining but there's noothing that can stop you from leveling other than you.

Probably the most mature mmo i've ever played. Worth a try but don't expect anything too innovative within the mmo genre

As I'm writing this review, this game is actually very nice, despite that not a lot of people are playing this nowadays.

I don't see how people are exclaiming that this game is dead, but it's not. I see some players in the game, which makes it clear that this game is not yet dead.

If you love adventure MMORPG games, Age of Conan: Unchained is it.

+Brilliant atmosphere that's still strong today.
-Pve difficulty is achieved by often letting you get ganked by mobs. The combat is not really action based. The skill is in making sure you wait for pats in each area before running in.
-Gameplay is sadly vanilla wow like pointless questing designed to keep you in the game as long as possible to earn as much subscription time as possible. It does create memories though like only vanilla wow did..

If you're bored and looking for something else, this is recommended. Leave it for that moment and it will shine.

FACT: ''Age of Conan: Unchained'' is highly addictive and is classified by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in the same category as cocaine. Don't play it or your social life will end.

Overall it's a great game, but for some reason it's incredibly laggy when playing with a laptop. If you don't have a big PC to play with, you may experience severe lagging.

A very good game that was lost to the glut of competition in the genre. Great character classes, and dialogue choices for missions offer a variety of playstyles and personality types. Fans of the Conan universe will find a huge amount to love, especially the music and "mature" tone.

This game is much fun. Fighting is fun. Quests are fun sometimes also as well. Fighting is the most fun in this game. Also being naked. There is blood.

Pls fix crafting system for more fun. Thank you very much, Age of Conan.
