    It’s not perfect (and carries many of the warts that are now tropes of the survival genre), but I’ve yet to find myself bored or disillusioned with any part of the experience. Like any game, Conan Exiles is best played with friends (and this game is AMAZING with a group of idiot friends). A battle to the death with 6 naked cannibals and a giant tiger is hands down the best gaming experience I’ve had in 2018.

    Conan Exiles is a great survival MMO with an interesting world to explore. On the the other hand, its scale and population density do not allow for serious PvP-wars.

    The game is full of all sorts of flaws and bugs, but thanks to deep mechanics and vast world it’s an enjoyable survival both in multiplayer and played solo (but less so in the latter case). [07/2018, p.52]

    The combat is mediocre and in some ways this still feels like it needs more time in the oven, but those who forgive these shortcomings can have a lot of fun in Conan Exiles.

    Conan Exiles captures the brutality of the source material, but weak combat and grindy crafting make it an often slow and arduous survival game.

    Conan Exiles is loaded with possibilities and danger. But the poor online performance and a long list of glitches are currently killing the game, which begs for fixes.

    Ultimately, Conan Exiles is one of the most unsatisfying games I’ve ever played. Its crafting and resource systems may be dense enough that the ultra-patient could find something to enjoy here, but anyone else would likely walk away with their hands thrown up in defeat. The mind-numbing tedium of harvesting resources, woefully boring combat, and a slew of bugs left me feeling completely underwhelmed and unimpressed when it was all said and done.

    Great game, smooth after a not too long early access period. More than doubled the original map and much better combat!

    Actually one of the best MMO survival in the market (far better than ark).

This game is huge, really well optimised, the textures are great, there is a real variety in the biomes a lot of things to do and many different gameplay styles. You also can build any base or huge castle you want with many architectural styles since they add a lot of optional cosmetics DLC to personalize your character and base.
    The game gets patches and updates very often which allow more content to be added on regular basis as well as a lot of improvements which makes it cooler day after day !
    I would have a lot more things to say about this awesome game but it would be a waste of time, simply fgo see the last reviews on Steam and you'll see how the game has been updated to be one of the greatest MMO of nowadays !

    This title will fade away because solo play hits a wall very quickly. Anything beyond building your base looks to be exclusively co-op.

    No story, no quests, no purpose. Just scavenging, looting, and crafting. And the crafting system is not explained, certainly not in-game.

    This means you're constantly Alt-Tabbing out to research. Guess what else? Alt-Tab makes the game freeze.

    Also constant, unrelenting stutter. They're supposedly working on fixing it, but there are complaints about this since spring '18. Doesn't sound like it's a priority.

    To add final insult-to-injury, the game frequently glitches and you lose followers. This is really fun when those followers are loaded with loot. Kinda defeats the entire purpose of the game, doesn't it?

    It's a hamster wheel, and a very unrewarding hamster wheel. The world (exploration and loot), combat, and the enemies (same animals so far, over and over) all make this a tedious, boring, unrewarding grind. Not sure how people can play for hundred of hours... Though TBH, most of that time is probably spent doing the tedious scavenging and running back and forth.

    I'm just glad I bought this as a used activation code from a 3rd party vendor. This development company does not deserve support. Do not recommend.

    I played it 212 h right now, still waiting for essential patches. But Funcom gives a xxx about players. Now I am sick of it. Sick of this poor Game and sick of all these heavy-gameplay-killing-Bugs.
    Conan Exiles is a disappointment.

    Was a great game. I loved it. I have over 2800 hrs game time on Conan exiles. I was waiting in anticipation for release on the 8 may 2018.Was a great game. I loved it. I have over 2800 hrs game time on Conan exiles. I was waiting in anticipation for release on the 8 may 2018. What a disappointment and disaster. Not enough servers to play on, servers changed from PVE-C to PVP. Games has so much more bugs then ever before. Impossible to play PVP due to lag, multiplayers disconnecting, when re-logging could take upto 30 min . My recommendation dont play this game Wait for 1 year or 2 years so they can fix the major bugs. There are numerous exploits as well. Do not play on private server as admin abuse is the norm. Not all official servers have admins check before you spend time on that server. Was an awesome game. Expand
