"Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures Original Soundtrack review"

"The music often melds a Central European orchestral sound with melodic contours that are more Mediterranean. This allows for some wonderfully lyrical melodic content."
"You will be constantly amazed by a score that is composed in that grand fantasy tradition with warm melodic writing and wise instrumental choices throughout."

"Overall this is an impressive release beautifully packaged with music that should be of interest to any fan of fantasy music even if they never play the game. Highly recommended." - Music4Games

"[...] outstanding music [...]"

Game Focus:
"Music in the game is by far so good; you would expect it on a movie soundtrack such as The Lord of the Rings, epic, emotional, moving and powerful are words that come to mind for every piece of music you will hear in the game or on the sound track [...]"
