The Conduit Wii Review

 

The Conduit, developed by High Voltage Software, is being seen as a saving grace of sorts for the Wii - giving hardcore gamers a first person shooter worthy of praise. Call of Duty and Medal of Honour came up short with their Wii versions of the...

A somewhat mature shooter for the Wii ; Impressive game engine ; Impressive control customisation

Hardly any online community ; Some bland design choices ; Uninteresting story

The Conduit Wii Review

 

The Wii is increasingly becoming something of a wasteland for gaming enthusiasts looking for their next hardcore fix. Sega are actually one of the few publishers trying to remedy this, with titles like MadWorld and House of the Dead: Overkill being the...

At the end of the day, despite its flaws, The Conduit is undoubtedly the best Wii-exclusive First-Person Shooter, it’s just a shame that particular accolade doesn’t mean much. Graphical prowess is no substitute for great art design, great controls are...

The Conduit

 

The Wii and shooters should come hand in hand - you've got an infrared remote with a trigger, an analogue stick on the other hand for movement. In theory first person shooters should be one of the easiest genres to get running on Nintendo's teeny box,...

Near-perfect first person shooter controls, and solid online play make a game worth considering - especially if you're in need of shooting loving on the Wii. With improved level design and variety, The Conduit does have potential to become a...

The Conduit (2009)

 

As the Wii library is stuffed to bursting with cutesy sports sims, minigame compilations and monkeys riding go-karts, the brutal gunplay and hardcore violence of The Conduit is blessed relief from the console’s family-friendly fun. But while the...

The Conduit [Wii] Review

 

Sci-Fi first-person shooter from High Voltage Software.

Nice visuals; Online multiplayer (plenty of modes/options); Harder difficulty settings are very challenging; Allows gamers to customise

Single-player mode is relatively short; Controls aren't perfect; Missions are repetitive and interchangeable

The Conduit

 

Let's get the inevitable comparisons to Goldeneye out of the way right now: The Conduit is the closest you will get to recapturing the magic of Goldeneye on a Nintendo console

Finally some smooth weapon aiming in a Wii FPS game. it has its moments

Terrible motion controls, uninteresting storyline and unimpressive graphics top the list

To be blunt, The Conduit is a by the numbers shooter that offers a couple of thrills but ultimately doesn't make much of an impact. If your system of choice is the Wii then I suggest you check it out, as action games are few and far between on the...

The Conduit

 

Outstanding controls aren't enough to save this generic and often frustrating shooter.

Great controls ; Technically impressive visuals

Monotonous levels ; Respawning enemies and invisible bombs are frustrating and cheap ; Generic art design and story ; Uneven difficulty

Wasted potential is the main theme for The Conduit because its technical prowess is overshadowed by misguided design decisions pasted onto a generic science-fiction universe. The excellent control scheme is able to save this otherwise average adventure...

The Conduit 2

 

We Don't Need No Stinking ‘The'

An enjoyable FPS, fixes the blandness of the first game, lots of cool secrets, Balloon Battle multiplayer

Pilfers almost everything from other better FPSs, short single-player story, some glitches, occasionally too dark to see anything

First, the important stuff… is that Duke Nukem? Why yes, Jon St. John himself has taken over duties as main character Michael Ford, which as far as names go, doesn’t beat his other role. The voice acting in Conduit 2 is passable, but no one sounds...

The Conduit 2 Review

 

Mr. Ford, Professional BAMF. It's on my business card.

Interesting, hilarious story; Solid motion controls; Frenetic, furious combat without being cheap

Graphics are a little iffy; Getting into a multiplayer lobby can take a long time; The Aegis Device can catch bullets and throw them in your face

Conduit 2 Review

 

Conduit 2 has arrived to save Wii owners from a drought of games. Can this first-person shooter overcome a few critical flaws?
