Images of Conan

THQ and Nihilistic Software present Conan (the action game, not the MMO), with a full bunch of screenshots showing a rather bad looking and cool game in the same time. Maybe a follower for the title of the first next-gn God of War-like?

I don't see anything special about the whole conan franchise

Good Concept but bad screens. Let's hope they'll release a gameplay video showing the combat soon cauz I really am intrested in this game just because it's an action adventure one!

looks like God of War for PS2. the lvl on the ship looks like the first lvl from gow.

The "Seamonster" looks really cool ! I think this game will be quite cool...but the visuals dont look good at all, but who cares...its Conan =]!
Commented on 2007-03-02 17:23:12
Definitely a God of War template at work here, but there are certainly worse role models to aspire to. :)

Is it me or does he look like a caveman!

Needs some graphical improvement

never really got the conan thing,never seen anything film or tv series wise,game might be fun but not if its looking that ugly,
i know you say this is the action and not the MMO,do you know if the MMO is coming to 360 or is it pc only also while MMO;S are being mentioned does anyone know when vanguard is 360 bound,as i miss mmorpg games from my pc days

Ew!

I hate Conan so much, I don't know what is it that makes the franchise to great anyway. Some buffed up caveman becoming a warrior with long hair.

Could turn out to be very interesting, but those screens look very terribly early-development phase, and their Conan model looks more like a Tarzan.

Nice to see the UNLIMITED power of the PS3 harnessed for such photorealistic graphics.

No, seriously. Only 6 moths ago everybody was expecting every PS3 game to simply blow the 360 away and here we are looking at conan, spiderman and a whole number of other games that look like complete ass.

I guess you haven't read the classic comic book series or the recent series by Kurt Busiek?

Nor has he read the original REH books or seen the first Conan movie with Arnie.

Conan is the one and only barbarian. Crom!

once they are forced to remove the decapitations (thank you germany!!) this game looks rather stale!
Commented on 2007-03-02 20:09:07
needs more blood!
Commented on 2007-03-02 21:22:21
Was it necessary to turn Conan into an ape? Pathetic. Just pathetic. People who churn out models like these should've chosen some other career... you know, like Hitler did when he couldn't get into art school.
Commented on 2007-03-02 21:23:05
This game looks truly awful. Hopefully it doesn't look nearly this bad in full motion. Do they think bloodiness is the only reason people like God of War? Jeez, get some paper towel.

Also, it looks like they're using bold comic book outlines on all the characters. Are they putting Conan in Crackdown 2?

we can say the same about 360 graphics looking like ass in this case then seeing as its on both platforms.
Good devs can produce great stuff on the PS3 and we've already seen it. Devs like Nihilistic who's history has involved what...a mediocre RPG based on the White Wolf Vamp franchise and a mediocre fighter based on Marvel characters....they're hardly indicative of the PS3, anymore than...oh...some of the crappy looking games that have come out on the 360
Commented on 2007-03-02 22:00:54
well, blur-o-matic - craptacular gfx.
conan the neanderthal or what? :) what`s up with the primate look?
looks almost as bad as a ps2 game - i hope it`s an early pre-alpha build?
Commented on 2007-03-02 23:54:27
Hmm... lemme shorten this down a little about this game: 1. S**ty graphics, 2. Poor shading, 3. Blood is very low detailed, 4. I just don't like it.

noxian: Well duh. I meant it's heart-warming to see that the new Messiah otherwise known as the PS3 doesnt magically turn turd into chocolate cake, as the fans would believe.

It's just a machine at the mercy of developers, not a crying cyborg baby, skynet, limitless powers etc utter BS sony keeps dishing out one PR release after another. People in the PAL region still believe all that BS because they havent seen the real thing.

Conan is the real thing and it will pee right in their eyes.

It looks horrendous.

    Tiz @amerakindesi: Staten along with Marty O'Donnell was a key figure at Bungie and is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft, he joined too late to influence Halo 5, but just in time to start Halo 6. (1 Hour ago)
