1 out of 5 eggsBugs!

Pros: Perhaps the best graphics quality of any MMO I've seen to date.
Tries to be faithful to the fictional era/world created by R.E. Howard.
The Egg was, as always, fast and good on delivery.

Cons: Bugs. Lag.
The most cumbersome update/patch system that I've ever encountered.
Bugs. Lag.
There's an additional $30 expansion that you really need to play this game.
Bugs. Lag.
Optimized for nVIDIA cards, significant drop in performance with equal ATI cards (yeah, I have ATI cards)
Bugs. Lag.
The entire game world is apparently devoted to PVP either in solo play or massive, laggy raids that resemble a PowerPoint presentation in slide show mode. If you ache to replay Street Fighter, this might be the game for you.
Oh...and before I forget to mention it...Bugs. Lag.

Other Thoughts: Honestly with games like DDO and LotRO adopting the "Free to Play" model for MMO's I'm not sure why you'd choose to pay for this software, pay for the expansion and then pay again every month for the dubious priviledge of using it. I'm glad I only dropped $4.99 on this experiment.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent game... Is it worth the hassle?

Pros: The game itself is amazing. I find it really easy to immerse my self in the world even knowing little of the lore. Graphics are great and the game play is amazing. I really enjoyed how the combat felt more skill based in PVP. Over all the game is great.

Cons: It's weird that after Lvl 20 the npc's stop talking to you and then start talking again ten levels later... When I played it the population was very tiny it didn't feel like I was playing an MMORPG at all but more like a single player game that I randomly ran into other people in.

Other Thoughts: I've actually been playing AoC for a while on and off. I'm in the military and I have recently been stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Anyone who's been in the same situation can tell you that the internet here is unsatisfactory to say the least(at least on base). So when I built my new PC and wanted to pick this back up again I tried to DL the game client and it took about four days of continuous downloading. I was prepared for that but when I tried to install the game it said all the files were corrupted and I had to re down load it all. So I bit the bullet and ordered a new copy from Newegg. It was cheap and got here fast. When I installed from disk I got the same message and it said to run the repair tool which then preceded to re-download the entire game... I dunno if it has something to do with the nets out here and the patches but I thought I'd put that out there for those of you who are in Oki and thinking about getting this game.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

Pros: This game is awesome! Finally a grown up MMO. I love the voice overs, the bad language, grim storyline, lack of cartoony world and characters, and all the awesome classes. I was sorely tired of WoW and LOTRO, just a bunch of dumb kids being dumb kids. The music is also very cool as well as the visual gore and fatalities. I absolutely love running through someone with my sword and kicking thier body off my blade, or chopping thier head clean off. Let's see WoW do something like that! If I want cartoons i'll turn on the TV. If i want to play an awesome MMO, i'll play this game.

Cons: High system requirements if you have a PC that's more than a couple of years old. I had to buy more memory and a new video card to really make it look good and run smoothly. However these aren't really cons as my computer was out of date anyway and I needed to get with the times!

Other Thoughts: TRY IT!

3 out of 5 eggsLots of possibilities

Pros: Great game, awesome graphics, good beginning story line, awesome music and sound. Has the potential to definitely be a WOW challenger.

Cons: Needs work. Targetting mechanics is very clunky. Getting aboard and moving on mount is clunky. Combat is a bit clunky. Clicking on quest items is clunky. Pay attention game devs! Needs work! Do it or lose your subscriber base.

5 out of 5 eggsGood MMO

Pros: This is a great MMO, far superior to WoW. Graphics are intense (read: very good); game abounds with muscles, monsters, and mammaries, a recipe for fun if you ask me. PvP and PvE servers are available as well as hybrids, so pick your poison and roll. Been playing for about 8 months and just resubbed for six.

Cons: There are a lot of 'hats that play on the PvP servers; if you can't handle it, roll on a PvE server like another reviewer suggests. If not, I mean PvP is there to sharpen you up. Engage in it and get a few PvP levels and turn around and pwn the same hats that got you when you were little and defenseless. Game advertised as brutal and delivers on the promise.

Other Thoughts: WoW is easymode. This game is not WoW. You will have to push more than one button to execute a combo, and yes casters will prawn your poorly-armored meelee toon if you don't train up. Again, awesome graphics that can be demanding, but people who shop newegg aren't shopping for the LEAST powerful PCs out there, are they?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!!

Pros: Finally! A game that makes World of Warcraft look like a cartoon. I'm tired of World of Warcraft. Running around in circles in Dalaran isn't fun. World of Warcraft desperatly needs more quests at level 80. I don't know why anyone wouldn't like this game. I've played World of Warcraft for 3 years and I can honestly say. This game beats it out. The graphics are insane! Enjoyable storyline. Look out WOW, this could be the best next generation (DX10) game killer. Runs awesome. No glitches!

Cons: None that I know of. No cons.....bought 4 copies from Newegg. The price is super low for this calibre of gameplay.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a good machine to see all the graphics in it's glory. DX10, not like Wow (DX9).

5 out of 5 eggsBuy it for the graphics, stay for the PVP!

Pros: This game is amazing!! World of Warcraft. Aion. Guild Wars. Asheron's Call. Everquest 1 and 2. I've played ALL these MMO's and more, and none of them even come CLOSE to Age of Conan. Graphics, storyline, and best of all, PVP!!! this game was MADE for PVP LOVERS!, and unlike guild wars, which was supposed to be all about PVP, you don't NEED a whole team. You can just run around freely in the world and kill anyone you want. This makes it a real dog eat dog world, but people like me love this aspect. You can do organized PVP too if you want. And did I mention that your guild can own their own city??? Build it how you want it. get your guild together and ATTACK other guild's cities!! WOW! this game never gets old!! Besides the PVP my favorite part is the graphics.. Just truly AMAZING!!! You might not notice at first just by looking at screen shots, only because the game doesn't use a lot of shiny colorful explosions and sparkles.But don't worry it looks realistic and great!!

Cons: You need a HIGH-END machine to play. Runs on medium-highish settings with a 4870 1 GB. Runs great on the 5870!
If your a little wow playing baby PVPer you might dislike the way you get brutally dominated by the open world PVP encounters. But I personally LOVE that stuff!:
"You stole my loot, give it back, or DIE!!!!"
(get owned and camped)
/guild "Hey guys, 'so-and-so guild' just stole my kill and owned me. Can 50 of you guys come RAID their City and teach them a lesson with me?"
Guild leader: "Ride out boys!!"
**hours of pure PVP carnage ensues, decapitations, smack talking, brutal zombie necromancer attacks, sneaking rouges, OH THE GLORY OF A REAL BATTLE!!**
Yeah you might not like that kind of awesomeness. Then its a CON for you. Go play WOW on your RPGPVE server and hold hands and collect some "BREWFEST TOKENS!!" so you can buy that stupid GOAT-MOUNT! WOOHOO!!! HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WEEK!!!

Other Thoughts: When this game first came out, it got pretty bad reviews. And honestly, it deserved it. But a lot has changed since then. They fixed 95% of all the issues and now this game is truly one of the greatest! Luckily for us, you can get it for under $10!! great price! Oddly enough, my second copy I downloaded off Steam, and they charged me $20. and it took a week!

I forgot to mention the combat system.. Melee is so fun. You don't just press the same old boring buttons over and over again like in wow. You use combos, and directional keys to enhance or change combos. No more sleeping at the keyboard while grinding! If you think you were a "hardcore PVPer" in WOW, you have NO IDEA. WOW IS A BABY GAME COMPARED TO THIS!!!! This game is fast paced, brutal, and extremely beautiful. If you are reading this whole review, trust me. Spend the $8. You will agree, if you have a high end gaming computer, and like MMOs that never get old, because of the awesome PVP, then BUY THIS GAME!
