I seg selv er «Age of Conan» blitt så bra etter lanseringen at man ville oppnådd en god karakter om det var kun originalspillet som skulle anmeldelses. Alle de tekniske småfeilene (og store feilene) er borte, opplevelsen er strømlinjeformet og god - og de to årene siden spillet først kom har blitt brukt meget godt. Med ekspansjonen, og spesielt fraksjonene og det nye systemet for å få nye egenskaper, er det rett og slett slik at vi ikke kan gjøre annet enn å anbefale alle å ta turen tilbake til Hyboria. Spesielt hvis man samtidig investerer i ekspansjonspakken (originalspillet er med i pakken man kjøper i butikken og på nett, så man får alt for en relativt liten sum penger). Dette er utvilsomt det beste MMORPG for voksne spillere på markedet. World of Warcraft er sikkert mer tilgjengelig og har en bredere appell, men når blodet spruter i Age of Conan så blir det litt tamt med noen små alver...

That’s the point really. Rise Of The Godslayer is expanding Age Of Conan horizontally and filling in the areas that arguably, shouldn’t have been an issue in the first place. But this is much more than a glorified patch: the new country of Khitai is big and radically different place from the rest of Hyboria that offers a comprehensively new content to new and loyal players. And if you’ve left it as long as we have between games, you may well enjoy Hyboria much more this time around.

Finally, the lack of mid level content has been addressed, level 80 content has grown to staggering proportions, and there’s a fascinating new land to explore. While you may have time to have a smoke while waiting for a new zone to load, the wait is worth it. Strong graphics, immersive audio, new gameplay options such as the alternate advancement system, some incredible new dungones, and the introduction of a pleasingly complex faction system makes Rise of the Godslayer a welcome addition to Age of Conan. By Crom, you’ll spend so much time splitting skulls that your family life and job will suffer. Isn’t that what is best in life? “To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.” If so, go out and pillage your bank account ever so slightly and get this expansion!

Funcom hat ordentlich nachgebessert und dabei auf die Spieler gehört. Die neuen Gebiete haben uns allesamt gefallen. Egal, ob ihr schon auf Level 80 oder noch auf dem Weg dahin seid: Mit dem Rise of the Godslayer gibt es wieder für jeden genug zu tun. Aber auch Gelegenheitsspieler dürfen sich über die ein oder andere nützliche Neuerung freuen. Rise of the Godslayer können wir deshalb nicht nur jedem Age of Conan Veteranen, sondern auch Neueinsteigern ans Herz legen. Sofern sie ein erwachsenes MMO mit expliziter Gewaltdarstellung und taktisch angehauchtem Kampfsystem suchen, und keine Item- und Set-Fanatiker sind -- die werden immer noch schlechter bedient als in vielen Mitbewerbern.

All said and done, Rise of the Godslayer is exactly what Age of Conan needed. Rise of the Godslayer is the perfect dose of awesome to bring a mediocre game that once had a lot of potential into adulthood as one of the industry's best. Much like Anarchy Online before it, Funcom has revived a game that struggled at launch. Hopefully players will take notice and give the Barbarian King's MMO another chance. It certainly deserves it.

Endlich spielt sich Age of Conan von vorne bis hinten beziehungsweise von Level 1 bis 80 so, wie ich mir das für ein ordentliches Online-Rollenspiel vorstelle. Massig Quests, immer was Neues zu entdecken, spannende Instanzen und für hochgezüchtete Helden gibt es noch gut was zu tun. Als nicht so gelungen empfinde ich das zähe Alternativ-Skillsystem, das wie eine Streckung der Spielzeit wirkt, und leider bieten viele Quests, vor allem die wiederholbaren, gerade mal Standardkost. PvP-Minispiele für zwischendurch sorgen dagegen für reichlich Abwechslung. Das Design der Monster und der Spielwelt ist fantastisch, dazu versüßen die schmucke Grafik und der fette Sound das Abenteuer – ich mag es!

For those active in Age of Conan already, however, Godslayer is a great step for the game. With well-considered new features, glorious artwork and fantastic music, it demonstrates Funcom's design and art teams firing on all cylinders, building on the work done by the technical team in bringing the game up to scratch over the past two years. Conan isn't about to threaten the biggest players in the MMO space, but it has found a niche for itself nonetheless, and Godslayer sees it settling into that role in confident and well-executed style.

Kritiken mot det svarta hål som förr väntade level 80-spelare är nu fyllt med en hel del innehåll som bör hålla veteraner sysselsatta ett bra tag framöver. Speldynamiken hålls intakt men med större möjligheter för att skräddarsy sin karaktär får både nya och gamla spelare som redan maxat sina karaktärer anledning att återvända. Rise of the Godslayer är en stabil expansion fylld med innehåll för de flesta nivåer, och den är utan tvekan ännu ett steg bort från den innehållsmässiga katastrof som Age of Conan var vid lanseringen.

Rise of the Godslayer est l'occasion de réhabiliter Age of Conan, un MMORPG enterré bien trop vite par tous ceux qui n'avaient pas accepté ses problèmes de finition et ses promesses non tenues. Cette première extension permet en effet de mesurer l'ampleur des améliorations apportées au titre depuis sa sortie. Et si certaines nouvelles fonctionnalités (le système de factions et la gestion de familier) manquent un peu d'ambition, le soin apporté à la reconstitution du Khitai, un magnifique territoire d'inspiration asiatique dépaysant et immersif, force le respect. Les mécaniques de jeu et les quêtes proposées sont plutôt classiques, mais elles s'inscrivent dans une toile de fond particulièrement riche, dynamisée par les rivalités entre les clans en présence. Rise of the Godslayer est une invitation au voyage et à la redécouverte d'un MMORPG qui répond enfin à toutes nos attentes.

Funcom have put a lot of work into Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer, and it shows. There is a great deal of polish to the landscapes, the music is exceptional, and there is simply a lot to do. Where Age of Conan falls short is in variety, and if reputation grinding is something you cannot abide – and for many MMO players, it is – then Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer is not your expansion. For everyone else, the alternate advancement, new dungeons, factions, and the land of Khitai are all good reasons to return to Robert E. Howard’s brutal world.
