If anyone is looking at this and fondly remembering Severance: Blade of Darkness go on and reinstall it, this thing isn't fit to be mentioned in the same breath as that masterpiece.
Agreed. Not that Severance ever left my hard disk in the first place
That said, I did enjoy the first Conan demo. The combos were fun and the combat system is OK. True, this isn't Blade of Darknes, yet it isn't a terrible game by any means. Yes, the graphics are sub-par. Yes, the combat system leaves much to be desired and, yes, the AI blows. Maybee I've smoked way too much crack tonight, but I really had fun with the Conan demo anyway. I really like the way they let you spend your exp on your preferred attacks / combos and I really believe that the designers have a desire to recreate the spirit of the Conan saga with this game. The engine is pretty bad as far as anomolies go (clipping, binding, worse than Morrowind ass-walking, etc...) but, hell, what are our other choices in this genre right now? None. I'm just glad someone is making a decent effort.
Edit: Hah, not that I expect anyone to agree with me. I'm also, surely, one of the only people on this earth that think that "Down in the Bone Horde" was the *best* level of the original Thief...This comment was edited on Feb 20, 05:07.
