Not your typical real-time strategy game, but despite a few interesting ideas this shallow husk of a game feels almost barbarically simple.
To appreciate Conan Unconquered it is necessary to close both eyes on its limits and bear the bizarre design choices, but if it is true that perseverance pays, it is also true that one can get tired much earlier.

Conan Unconquered isn't the most polish RTS this year, but it is filled with unique ideas, challenging enemies and fun emergent moments.
Losing to a devastating horde in Conan Unconquered makes victory later on that much sweeter. But it's difficult to know if this kind of challenge-based real-time strategy game can maintain a long-term appeal.
A scrappy and bloody brilliant strategy game that builds further upon the idea of survival strategy, Conan Unconquered doesn't stray too far from its primary influence but it does offer plenty of unique substance that gives it its very own flavour. Now that, is what is best in life.
Overall… it's fun, but does get frustrating on the later levels… the fact you can't save your game to try a configuration and then reload if it didn't quite work simply adds to that frustration. At the current price tag I think it might be a little much… but there is a bit of value in the unlockable comic pages and the ability to play through as a couple of other characters is nice. Perhaps wait for a sale unless you happen to really like tower defense style gaming.
A tower defense game combines with classic RTS feelings. Conan Unconquered does not look so attractive nowadays, it needs more enlighten idea to impress gamers.

Conan Unconquered is a deep and rewarding strategy-survival title with some unfortunate technical issues that could really shine with some updates. Grab a friend and you'll have a quality co-op game on your hands.
A capable yet uncreative and unimpressive game that feels straight out of the early 2000s.
Conan Unconquered has decent potential, but fails to meet expectations.

Conan Unconquered is a defense based strategy game. This game had a lot of potential to become a very good real-time strategy game and is well-designed in some aspects. But some parts of the game like Economy System has a lot of balancing issues that prevents you from enjoying the game. The game is also overpriced and even one of the three heroes of the game are locked behind a paywall which is not acceptable for a 30$

Conan Unconquered is a unique title in the strategy genre, but either due to limited budget or lack of time, the developers failed to reach the full potential of their ideas. Conan has the potential to become one of the best strategies in the market, and maybe developers can reach that potential through future updates, but at its current state, Conan Unconquered might not be the best option for the fans of the genre.

Petroglyph + Funcom = unbeatable Conan. RTS with tower defense elements works very well. Just beware of fire!

Conan Unconquered is an often fun and always brutal experience that will keep you returning for beatings time after time, if you can excuse the already questionable paywall content, economic issues, and lack of game mode variety.
The people at Petroglyph, a gaming studio renown for their great RTS titles of the past, challenged themselves to accept this burden, and as far as I'm concerned, they pretty much pulled it off.
While it is no genre-defining title like Command & Conquer, Conan Unconquered is more than just a worthy successor to a team of developers known for their storied past. Excellent graphics, if troublesome user interface, and a pacing that will have you both glued to the seat and your heart beating with the very drums of war. Conan Unconquered should without a doubt, be in every RTS fan’s library.
With interesting mechanics and ruthless enemies, Unconquered will be a great experience for strategy game fiends and Conan fans alike.
Conan Unconquered challenges players to survive waves of enemies, but not to the sense of scale fans will have hoped for.
Conan Unconquered presents some cool ideas but doesn't provide enough weight or substance to keep you coming back for more punishment.
And as for Conan Unconquered? It’s passable. A pastiche. A painting of a game that lacks all the vim and vigour in the brushstrokes that may have offered some semblance of excitement or, heaven forbid, enough enthusiasm to bring Conan himself back to life.
