Conan Exiles Review Channelling its inspiration from the legendary

mythology of Conan the Barbarian which was created by the late Robert E. Howard, including

elements from the film of the same name which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger comes CONAN

EXILES for PC, PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Dubbed an open-world survival game, CONAN

EXILES is firmly set in the world of Conan and successfully brings this universe to life

that can be played alone or online with others which has been meticulously created. It also

allows you to live your badass barbarian dreams of being a kick-ass warrior!

Thankfully this game works and the attention to detail, including what your character can

do is impressive and developers Funcom should be commended on their achievement. Sure, there

are some graphical glitches here and there but they succeed in creating an interactive

world and one that celebrates the spirit of Conan with some fun crafting mechanics thrown

into the mix. If you think of an adult version of Minecraft meets RPG, thats pretty much

what Conan Exiles feels like, although with more realistic graphics

Before jumping into the world of Conan Exiles, you must first create your protagonist which

includes gender and appearance, not to mention certain tweaking of your currently naked Avatar.

If you read Conan in the books or comics or watched the films, the world of Conan is quite

sexualised and Funcom definitely incorporate a touch of this element into this video game.

So once your character has been created, you find yourself nailed to a crosscrucified

to be precise. However fortunately for your warrior, their fate is spared when Conan frees

her. Left naked and literally left to your own devices, you must start your journey to

build your own kingdom.

The first part of the game serves as a tutorial, starting of tough you have to work out what

was needed for your character. This Tutorial gives you certain tasks to achieve like craft

clothing and weapons, create a bedroll to sleep and findintelligent life’. By

engaging in crafting, exploring and killing, this will allow you to level up in order to

fine-tune your statistics and your crafting abilitynot to mention build your own little

(or soon to be big) kingdom. Needless to say, shelter came in very handy at nights.

Even though Its easy to become frustrated at times, this is a survival game and the

title does a great job at throwing you into the deep end and to succeed in Conan, mastering

the menu is a must, followed by crafting. Theres also plenty of things to pick-up

along the way which will have you pressing X quite a bit as you collected bugs to eat,

leaves to make clothes, sticks and stones that allow you to mine rock that in turn allowes

you to create items such as a pick-axe. You will also need to eat and drink and be prepared

for when your character inevitably gets injured. As you progress your days will turn into nights

as you became a junior barbarian, you will start to understand the mechanics of the game

as you craft better items, create your own shelter out of stone and then weapons that

even Conan himself would be proud of. And even though you may have your own shelter,

at this stage you will still be a small fish in a very big pond with exploration being

another massively enjoyable element of this game as you venture forth in order to find

better materials to craft better items, even climbing mountains and exploring within the

game. Throughout your travels, you will encounter

a plethora of enemies and although Conan Exiles has the mechanics to interact with others,

you will often find most encounters ending in blood shed.

The combat system works well and the developers add a plethora of different enemies which

increase your overall enjoyment. Needless to say, theres plenty to see and

even more to do in Conan Exiles and although this game is not made by a Triple A company,

it has this unusual and addictive charm that really makes you forget about time as you

become fully engrossed in this experience. As mentioned, you can play Conan Exiles with

other players online, including the option of joining a safe server (e.g. no player killing)

or one of pure chaos and mayhem. The multiplayer option is generally fun with very few server

issues. Graphics/Audio

Graphically, Conan Exiles initially looks amazing on the Xbox One X. However as you

play, certain bugs come into play like how unusual it looks when your character swims

or you can lure your enemies into the water and they just stand there, while you hack

them to pieces. Or they may follow you into the water and then just stand underwater.

However the level design is decent, including the areas that you visit, the lighting effects

and character design but the animation is a mixed bag.

While the graphics are a mixed bag, the soundtrack is brilliant and is very reminiscent of the

original Conan the Barbarian film which really gets your adrenaline pumping. Voice acting

however is a bit of a hit and miss and more on the clichéd side.

Final Thoughts? Conan Exiles may not have the budget and finesse

of most Triple A games, however at the end of the day, it is a decent open world survival

game. The inconsistences with the gameplay and at times buggy graphics can be forgiven

because it has charm and more importantly it successfully draws you into the world of

Conan as you build your own Kingdom in an attempt to make your own mark in this godforsaken

world. The game is fun to play and will keep you

entertained for a long time, mixing both multiplayer and Solo play, its just a shame some of

the weaker visuals help the game to be rated 7.5/10.
