age of conan worth it for free content only?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
not a hard core player and don't plan on spending any money on it. i do enjoy role playing games, but time and interest wise, just not something i invest a lot into anymore.

is it fun and worth the download to pick up as a free once-in-a-while game? or do i need to get really into it and/or purchase stuff to make it worth it?

As a free to play game I wouldn't bother.

Actually as a pay to play game I wouldn't bother either. It's rubbish.

The game pretty much fell apart afew months after release. The seiges that they advertise in their game do not work correctly - Still to this day, same bugs as on release. The only reason they went F2P is so they can suck up all the money they can through a cash shop before the game finally dies.

Im a hardcore AOC player, have been since launch. Although its the most brutal, sexy and savage MMO out there i wouldn't recommend it solely for "free to play"

I pay monthly and even i sometimes feel like im being F'ed in the A by funcom. Free to play players will have a lovely grind fest ahead of them and get the added knowledge of knowing they'll never be viable for PVP or anything fun


If you're literally looking for something casual, jump in/jump out then AOC may be a great refreshing change for you - it hosts by far the BEST combat system in any MMO with real time combos and movement/dodging playing a huge role, it relies heavily on skill (most traditional MMO players dont last)
So if you just want to lop off a few heads and run a few quests casually - go for it. You've got nothing to lose (except 30gb of HDD space )
