- So, the time has come and the gates of Hyboria have been opened. This review is going to cover the first 20 levels of the Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures from the time you are ship wrecked on the island until you leave to adventure the true game.
First, AoC (Age of Conan) is the first game that I have played where you are able to create your character in detail. Although most mmorpgs have basic customization, your character in Conan is completely customizable from head to toe. Most of this you already know so let me get to the break down of the game itself.
AoC has to have one of the best starting off game play for a mmorpg I have played in a long time. Right off the bat you are fighting Picman and Savengers, not animals that slow down the game and make it repetitive. You level up fast through the first couple of levels and get some pretty decent attacks.
There are a couple of different classes that will suit different people and each class can be customized to your liking. No one character in AoC will ever look the same and fight in the same style because the game play is in such a fast paced environment and the leveling system is very open-ended.
One thing that really stands out in the game to me is the fighting. No more auto-attack!!! You have to swing your sword, pole arm,...
