Trailer of Conan the Barbarian

Trailer of Conan the Barbarian

Yay, a trailer of Conan ! It looks as bad as before, but I still think this is kinda cool. And it could end up as being a very nice brawler in the Conan universe, which is not that bad of a thought, isn't it ?

this... is..... well, errr...hmmm god it looks awful, i dont like judging games from there visuals, but that is horrid.

look like is cell sodder grafix or what ? conan looks very cartoon up close
Commented on 2007-03-13 13:48:34
Err, it really doesn't look THAT bad. It's just a bit unimaginative.

No cell shading here, nothing close to it... just looks that way because of the low res textures.. honestly, the game looks like it belongs on last gen systems.. that trailer was pretty good although you can tell its very rough around the edges and the animations need a little fixing. I don't know... its hard to tell whether it'll be any good or not, but I think it's obvious it needs a lot of tweaking before the game ships out. I hope it'll just do enough justice to the Conan franchise.

Amazing they're showing so much if it isn't out until 2008. It does look a lot better in motion though, it could be God Of War style fun! Bring on GOW2 :D

Graphics - Bad
Art Direction - Bad
Animation - baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!

Come on!! and here was I thinking we're past jerky animation, unimaginative design and copy paste approcahes..... The game needs a serious overhaul if it's to capture the attention of anybody.

It really is that bad, the original GoW looks better.

maybe they wan't to bring the last gen look back
Commented on 2007-03-13 15:32:54
lacks real detail, yeh and the animation looks last gen too. Only hope is that the fighting system is great, wonder if these guys have played ninja gaiden, seriously any developer that creates a 3rd person combat game should use NG as a benchmark.

Looks like a lot of fun decapitating all the enemys, but is it like the game will be released with that in Europe. I remember NG had that removed or you could only decapitate the creatures.
Commented on 2007-03-13 16:24:39
Certainly in the UK PAL Version of NG Black the decaps were back :)

Like a few other people here, I hate judging a game by its visuals, but I think that looks WORSE in motion than some of the screenshots I've seen online and in Game Informer. Even the hit detection is off (I had no idea that Conan could use the force, which is shown at about 00:39 on the trailer).

I know this game is still in early development, and I hope that the 2008 release date is enough time to really do this franchise some justice.

Oh i never knew that, I bought NG a couple of months before NJB came out still hadn't completed the game. Think I'll pick up a copy second hand

Dont compare this to that ...thats... thats like comparing Killzone to HALO, it is just not right :D
Commented on 2007-03-13 18:54:31
still hoping this is pre-alpha stage... anything else would be too emberassing.
there is still a SLIGHT chance this could turn out somewhat "good" (2008..still some time).
they just have to COMPLETELY redo err..EVERYTHING!

btw: i`m all for gore and such, but it seems this game is based SOLELY on hypergore.
somehow i suspect this will not be rated E ^_^

well, let`s wait and see. no high hopes here though :o/
Commented on 2007-03-13 18:55:17
with more polishing the game could be atleast on par with god of war visually
Commented on 2007-03-13 19:03:30
I realy HOP that it will be like God Of War style but when I so the trailer i very dissa...... not even Close to AWASOME gameplay of God of war . and i tollk aboot part 1 of the game
Commented on 2007-03-13 20:31:55
Wow, they got some balls releasing a PS1 game in 2008.

To be fair, at least Killzone LOOKED pretty good. :p

Some 360 games have had some dreadful early screen shots, but the final product has blown us away sometimes. Frontlines looked might I say rather poor at the start and now it looks extremely impressive, so lets hope the same happens here.

That is quite true actually. When Dead Rising was first unveiled remember how the main character's face looked? And the lack of decent lighting in the environments. Everyone said it would suck and when it finally came out people were drooling over the graphics and the gameplay.
Commented on 2007-03-13 22:17:44
yeah it "looked" good but ... everything else was E.T quality.
Commented on 2007-03-14 01:09:31
I dunno... you young folk and your 'Next-Gen' ideals!

Actually on second look..... it IS that bad, lol.
Commented on 2007-03-14 17:54:19
Right now, it's looking quite pathetic to me. Everything looks so incredibly low-res. The textures, the character models, hell even the basic geometry of things like the vegetation and buildings looks so simplistic and lacking detail. Even with nearly a year to go in development, I can't understand why they'd want to show the game now the way it's looking.

As for it being a God of War type game, unfortunately I don't think Conan is going to be that unless they really revamp what I've seen of the fighting system which looks very basic compared to the fighting of either God of War or Devil May Cry.

Damn, I wish MS hadn't passed on Heavenly Sword right now...
