Re: Why is the Conan Trial 8 Freaking Gigabytes?
Its nothing like Ultima, and hopefully its nothing like the Beta. Like most modern MMOs it copies WoW and makes a handful of changes. The combat is a little more engaging as it requires timed counter attacks.
I only had it installed about a day because it was so buggy and ran quite terrible on my 8800GT. Nothing about it really peaked my interest as the combat was more annoying than anything to me (maybe I was just used to the button spamming of WoW).
It may be so large because its the full game. I know most MMOs include the full client in the trials so that people can just buy the key and a subscription without having to go out and buy the boxed version.
