1 out of 5 eggs Bugs! 06/17/2010

This review is from: Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures PC Game

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.
