When the Dev of Age of Conan first started to show there MMO on the game channel I was amaze but although I had my doubts, I was worried that they may release the game to soon due to people wanting it badly and so they did. So me and my brother got ready and headed out to the local mall game store, we was in there for hours debating between WoW and AoC and our choices where World of Warcraft due to my doubts.
As people started playing there new copies of AoC days pass and right away people was disappointed of the game due to all the bugs and glitches, what a shocker. I stayed on it, reading about AoC of the months it has been release and nothing was changing but I did not lose hope! then out of nowhere this huge patch for AoC was release...I could not even read it all, everyone on the forums where happy and patching and I just knew this patch would fix the problems that hurted AoC fan base. So instead of going and buying AoC I decided to use the trial version and had to wait just like everyone else patching and that was a long angry wait. Once it was done I took a deep breath... open the Hyborian gates and went in and I enjoyed every bit of my time in AoC and will buy it and play it for a long time. I now see less problems being posted on the forums older players starting to come back more and more new people are entering, now Hyborian is growing happly.
So now I rate it.
7/10 I enjoy it more than WoW or any othere MMO to date, don't get me wrong WoW is a good MMO.
9/10 Graphics are amazing for an MMO and the best for now.
8/10 Combat is dangerous grusome fun but can use some tweaking.
9/10 New solo play system is great.
9/10 Starting town is fun and funny. by seeing new players first entering Tortage in underwear holding sometype of rusted sword or some beast leg bone as a blunt weapon is very funny to me cause they look so epic.
10/10 The open world after first city was jaw dropping amazing view and exploration.
So yes AoC is a big 10 in my book. But I hate that my trial ended right when I got my new skill for my assassin.
