Anyone who has actually read Robert E. Howards Conan the Cimmerian Stories, or is a fan of Schwarzenegger epic Conan the Barbarian, might be interested in this deal currently going on The Hut. You can get hold of a copy of Age of Conan: Hyborian adventures for just £2.73!
However, do bear in mind that Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is one of those life destroying MMORP games. So if you're one of those people with an addictive personality it might be an idea to think twice before you thrust yourself into the ‘dark, decadent, twisted’ heartlands of Hyboria. Some people even swear that this is an even better online role play game than WOW, and given that game’s reputation for life-wrecking addictiveness, make sure you handle Conan with care.
In terms of story, Hyborian Adventures is set in the twilight years of Conan’s life where, wracked by internal conflict and outside threats, the old king is forced to chuck on his armour, take up his mighty sword, and reunite his kingdom by mercilessly battering anyone who opposes him into utter submission. The game has attracted favourable reviews, particularly with regard to its characters, combat system and graphics.
On the downside, the game can be quite sluggish when it comes to loading, and was a bit short on content at one point according to a few Amazon reviews. However, the designers have stepped in to rectify these problems with fresh new content and according to the ever reliable Wikipedia, the servers of Conan still teem with activity.
