    Does anyone know if it has been delayed for the PS3 ? Im sure it will because of the fact its a multiplatform release.

    Check the Conan thread on the 360 section. There's some comments there on what I thought about it

    Purchased this a few days ago and been playing it the last couple of evenings.

    The game is pretty good and fun to play, its not spectacular but its a solid does what its advertised hash and slash. Combat is fairly easy, as you go progress you gain experience and can purchase new special moves. The route you take throughtout the game is set and you just follow the path killing anything that comes your way, sometimes invisible walls stop you from deviating from that path which can be frustrating.

    The game is rated as 18 and for good reason there is plenty of blood in this game and limbs come flying off left right and centre, entrails come pouring out and heads fly. Some of the special moves you unlock enable Conan to slice his oppenents straight down the middle, or rip hearts out. Most of the female's Conon rescue on the way seem to have lost all there clothing as well, however being chained up for god knows how long does not seem to have affected there Page 3 model figures or there lusting after Conan.

    The story and acting in the cut scenes is pretty good, I think Conan is voiced by Ron Perlman and his female companion by Claudia Black thats who they sound like anyway, haven't checked the credits.

    All in all a pretty fun game to play, dont expect anything ground breaking but if you like this sort of game it should entertain.

    I have been playing the new Conan game for the PS3 but have run into a problem. There is a section where you have to climb a cliff and the onscreen instruction seems to indicate that pressing the X button will make the character leap up and grab a ledge. Unfortunately once I have done that Conan just hangs there immobile and wont respond to any other commands from any other button. Does anyone know if this is a software glitch or am I just doing something wrong? Thanks.

    What's these achievement things that are on the PS3 version? Are they the things that Home's going to start, a bit like the 360 idea? Wonder if it'll tally them up from games like conan.

    Might have to pick this up, and if the PS3 version's got achievements I'll get that. Want a PS3 game but also like to get a flashy icon when I've done something good :)

    The demo for this game shows how dificult it must be for developers.

    This game seems very similar to heavenly sword, less polished graphically but with a very similar combat system with maybe a couple of additions.

    I loved Heavenly Sword but I don't like the demo of Conan and I can't wholly explain why :confused:

    I played the demo last night. It is a decent game with good graphics and gameplay. It was quite fun to play and although I didn't finish the demo I got quite far. However it's not really a good representative of what can be done on the PS3 or the 360 and felt more like a high resolution version of a PS2 or 360 game. It's certainly not worth the full retail price.

    All PS3 games are region free. There is no reason for this to be an exception. As far as I know there has not been any indication that it is region locked since it has been released.

    Yep, it's just one of those wiggle the stick and press any button to kill your enemy games.

    Deleted the demo faster than it took to download.

    Load of old tosh...

    I agree, also paid a Fiver for it, previous coments are right, button bashing and linear, but stick it on after a rubbish day at work its ok, no need to think. Playd it for 5 hours now, don't know how long left.

    Anybody know the trade in price for this? Hoping to get £10 for it as a trade in at Game.

    Trade in price is around £5 fella - I bought mine from Zavvi for a fiver, & I'd rather keep the game than give it away to the robbing gits @ Game :D

    I just bought this from Curry's for a £10...

    I'm loving it! its reminiscent of golden axe but with crude sexist commentary!

    Cheap cheerful and good time filler till killzone/fightnight/gt.
