Should i get Age of Conan? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
So far I'm liking the game and I swear I freaking swear that these "bug" people talk about haven't stop me from leveling or enjoying the game.

Anyways if you want to find out about the game read some reviews from real player that gotten to lvl80 don't listen to these kid that played for the first 20lvls.

The game still has a little way to go to be truely polished. People complain about it not being polished etc etc because they are used to playing established games. Every MMO that has come out has been pretty terrible during release for numerous issues. The 2 a week updating is doing pretty good with fixing stuff and polishing it off more.

If you are the type of person that will get frustrated with an unpolished game, do not play AOC. You will think it is a trash game. If you are a person that can accept the fact that MMO's take time to polish up even after their beta then you might enjoy the game.

Other than that the cons of the game play-

1. Everything is an instanced. I can understand having to zone between the different cultural area's and the capital cities, and some dungeons. However having to zone load while running along a road to get to the next leveling area is pretty dumb. That is my chief concern about the game.
2. Lag at the higher level zones is bad. The lower level zones were fine when i was leveling right at release. The higher level zones, not so much. And even to this day the lvl 70+ zones are still pretty laggy.
3. Travel is pretty terrible. Yes there are mounts and they have finally fixed the run speed for them. But you feasibly cant get a mount till you are lvl 50+ because the cheapest one is 2g and the riding ability is 1g. There are no horse routes or flight paths to get from one town to the next, ala DAOC/WoW. So be prepared to run everywhere on foot speed, or suicide so you can get to the rez pad which is the closest to the spot where you want to go.

pros-
1. Very fun melee combat system. Gives melee classes something different than what has been offered in MMOs
2. Graphics are very pretty. It is a beautiful game graphically. Because of the intense graphics it does tax your system.
3. It is new. A new game, with new things to explore and new type of game play. It will keep you busy seeing zones and graphics that you havent' seen before.


I would recommend the game if you are a patient/understanding player, in that you have to realize they are fixing things that werent fully tested in beta. If you want a completely polished game after a month of release, then dont pick it up.

In the end the only true way for you to find out if you like the game, is to play it. Try to get the buddy passes once they are open or see if you know someone with an account that you can play while they aren't online(i have done this with several of my friends) so you can see if you like the game or not.

Well, i got the game. Yeah it has its ups and down. Its funny how the OP class in wow when the game came out was the rogue ... which is basicaly the assassin in the game. The assassin is the weakest in the game.

Instancing sucks... but its like Everquest... not like Guild Wars. The game has its cool points for sure. Combat system is a lot of fun, but im only level 20.


Who else played WoW in beta and release? I had a mage.... blink... great ability... but for the longest time.... would shoot you trough the world and you die. cant get your corpse so you have to sperit rez.

This game has only been out for 1 month now... there are a few BIG buggs that should have been smoothed over by now or at least in beta. Seems like they rushed the game at the end. Some of the controls are a little annoying like when i pull up the map for some reasion i cant press M to close it... i right clicked some how on there.

Stupidest thing EVER they put in the game was how Female Assassins attacks slower then males. They wanted to make a Female hit slower and do more damage.... that makes no sense and whats even crazier... is the fact that they dont do more damage... They took that out... So they attack something like .2 or .3 seconds slower for the same damage. That really bugged me... that should have been fixed on the first patch.

... It was probably a bit early for me to buy the game... But its been getting more and more fun now. One thing i truly miss about wow that AoC doesnt have... is how smooth WoW runs... The abilitys, and movement and gameplay is so smooth in wow. Its kinda like saying wow is like Dead Or Alive and AoC is like Tekken. Both good games, both fighter games... but feel different.



Damn wall of text ... no one will read heh.

Your attitude about the game is pretty neutral it seems. It is a fun game, but still needs some work. I am at the point where i plan on giving them another 2 months tops to address some of the major issues before i toy with the idea of playing something else that is already out and polished. But so far since release i have enjoyed playing the game for sure.

Yup sounds about right. Ill probably cancel my subscription( still have 28 days on it heh) if it doesnt pull me in more and reactive it a couple months later when they fix the MAJOR issues.

on a sad note... Game has crashed 3-4x on me already...
