Default Conan the Barbarian Demo on PSN.

Tried it, thought it was too much like Heavenly Sword. The art is very reminiscent of the old comic book series, the game looked rough over all, so I didn't care for it much. Anyone else try it?

it feels very much like an old school game. I dont think it feels like heavenly sword personally because Heavenly Sword is beautiful in terms of graphics and music. Also, the combat system is heavenly sword is way deep. this is very simple combat

uummm...have you thought maybe your net connection sucks. I downloaded every single new content of the week as I always do. Thats 2 demos, 3 vids and 4 wallpapers and 2 trailers in a few hours max? maybe 4?

Also, keep in mind that background downloading takes much longer. Hence background. When you click download and hold the screen there, the download will be much faster

ah you don't say. well it took heavenly sword which is 1 gig over 6 hours... but I will try not putting it to the background to see if this makes a difference. my net connection is good up to 500K so I know that's not the issue.

I don't have a problem with the downloads either. I'll que up all the new content and it only takes a couple hours at most. Sometimes it's slow on thursdays, but I attribute that to heavy traffic (thursdays are when they update with new content.)

As for the Conan demo, I was not impressed at all, nor did I think it felt like Heavenly Sword.

I could download conan in about an hour and a half, no problemo.

I won't be buying this game, it just didn't wow me. Then again, I'm not the biggest Conan fan.

When I compared it to HS, it definetly wasn't the graphics, but the gameplay controls I was talking about. They're virtually the same.

yea, let me know if that helps, im curious to know if its just different net providers or the background downloading thing but like Ckelly said, on Thursday, is the worst day to download because it just launched and everybody is cramming all the content and thats just stressing the servers
