Conan Exiles is often slow and arduous, but even after 70 hours – 40 since launch – the idea of returning to the Exiled Lands still holds some allure. Crafting is largely a tedious grind, especially the higher up you get in the crafting tiers, and it's surprising that in a world about brutal combat, Conan Exiles falls flat there. However, the beautifully realized world is a joy to explore and it nails the atmosphere of the source material.

If Ark and Rust are the flaccid alpha males of survival gaming, Conan is the cocksure challenger angling for an advantage.

Broad in shoulder, wide in scope, rough around the edges. Nevertheless, an enjoyably meaty survival game.

Half-broken and needlessly obscure, but if you have the patience this challenging survival game can be extremely satisfying – and it'll be even better when it's finished.

This hardcore survival sim is too dense for its own good.

While some of Conan Exiles has rubbed off a bit for me thanks to friction with its more cumbersome aspects, it remains a genuinely engrossing experience to play... if you can find a spot in the queue.

This is a game with a huge map and with almost infinite content. Funcom has brought Conan the Barbarian's world to a very complete game and improving what we saw in the early access, even though it has some flaws to be fixed.

As you play more of Conan Exiles and access higher tier items, it becomes more and more clear that there was serious potential here. The survival aspects of the game are fun, provided survival is your thing, and it brings some new ideas and features to the table. The thrall system in particular is interesting, but ultimately fails in its execution. Considering its price, I can't help but feel the package and its quality is a little lacking.

Conan Exiles feels like an unfinished game. A unique survival experience, full of potential, but also full of bugs and broken elements. It may become one of the best in its genre, if Funcom continues working on it.

I played the PC version of Conan Exiles for the purposes of this review. From the perspective of a fairly demanding PC nerd, I found the game to be more than adequate. While it has lots of the classic rough edges common to survival games, it can be outright beautiful at times. I encountered no performance issues on my machine during play and the game has all the graphical options and settings you'd expect from a competent PC release. The game works well with high resolutions, ultrawide configurations, and high refresh rates. I found it to be very playable with the Xbox One S controller, though I used a mouse and keyboard for the majority of my time. The game runs on Unreal Engine 4, so users can expect the usual strong point or quirks common to games that license this popular engine.
