I lag at technology so i couldn't play Conan on my old machine and although i can now play Conan on the new one it's not good enough for TSW - dratz. Still, had a brief play on the free weekend just to have a look and i think anyone who is mostly PvE and who enjoyed the adventure genre of games or tabletop Call of Ctulhu or comics like Constantine will like this a lot. I'd sub to TSW if it would run on my machine and it's the only current game i'd say that for (with the exception of the Lotro chapter quests if i hadn't already done them a few times).
- single main mission at a time
- cut-scenes (awesome)
- side missions you stumble across
- investigation missions (awesome)
- overall atmospehere and mobs
I like the modern setting but
- ancient times (Sumeria, Egypt etc)
- gothic medieval
- victorian 1880s
- Indiana Jones 20s and 30s
would all have been good. I think on balance i'd have gone for Victorian as an excuse for the factions to have secret "hi-tech" steampunk stuff.
Good game, and a breath of fresh air after so many cookie cutter games.
