Computer & Video Games has posted their preview of Age of Conan. The preview is very positive though it ends on a curiously back-handed compliment:
What remains to be seen is whether the many years of effort will connect into a coherent and engrossing MMO. The combat, while much improved, will still provide an obstacle to new players merely by dint of being different from World of Warcraft.
We'd really like to see Conan succeed - hell, we'd really like to see any MMO different enough from WoW succeed. The open beta starts any moment now.
And combat different than WoW? Shouldn't that be a -good- thing? Comments?
