Conan got a good ol' beating over at ActionTrip who awarded Cauldron's/TDK's RPG-flavored action adventure a score of 41% in their review.
In our earlier coverage, we introduced you to a number of features that might actually make Conan an interesting experience for certain gamers. The developers of the game claimed that the main inspiration for Conan comes from Robert E. Howard's novel. This became self-evident from the moment we began playing the game. To begin with, Conan looks nothing like the venerated movie character flawlessly depicted in John Milus' epic Conan the Barbarian, starting Arnold Schwarzenegger. In this game, Conan completely fits the descriptions from the books, and even looks a bit like the character portrayed in Conan comics. And yet, certain scenes in the game were unmistakably inspired by characters and set-pieces from the aforementioned movie (regardless of what the developers might be saying about it). Mind you, the storyline itself has its own course and is not related to any of the movies.
