Good for a little bit
Conduit is a good game at first, but the campaign was a little to short and I didn't find myself wrapped up in it. It's not one of those games you look forward too when you come home from work or school, just a way to kill time. Multiplayer also became old really fast; the immense amount of glitches(my least favourite being the rapid-fire Rocket Launcher glitch)got really old and I would often find myself getting ticked off. The only thing I was wowed by was the graphics. The graphics of the characters and the lighting was pretty good, better than any FPS I've seen so far on the WII. I wouldn't jump for it, but overall it's a good shooter for the Wii standards.
So far, this will probably be the second best online FPS game for Wii. You can battle out Sci-Fi style with up to 16 players online. Local split-screen in not confirmed yet, but it might be a possibility. This game will also be the first Sci-Fi online FPS Shooter, which is very exciting. Though the setting might not fit in for the game that well (Washington D.C.), it will still be interesting how this game turns out. We also have confirmation of being able to talk with other players with the Wii Speak peripheral, for the first time ever for a Wii FPS. Very exciting. The only reason, in my opinion that this isn't the best online FPS game for Wii, is that it has a 16 max online player count, while MoH Heroes 2 has 32; though this is only a small issue. The graphics are said to be the best for the Wii, though I'm skeptical about this statement. Still, it does have some pretty unique weapons and characters, and the storyline is most intriguing. Let's hope this game turns out to be good.
Horrible single player
I beat the game within 3 hours on hard from the time i put i into my Wii. That wasn't because it was easy. It was actually pretty hard in some spots. I beat it because the story wasn't long at all...If u watch all the videos on IGN on this game you've basically just seen half of the game. There is also no real boss fights in any of the levels. They just throw a bunch of few hard enemies at u in the end of the game.The multiplayer isn't terrible but its no where near being decent. Also when you start walking and try to turn with the nunchuck, there's a little bit of lag. The new physics engine works amazingly though. The game moves pretty smoothly when its not under a bunch of load like a few radiation nades going off at once. The custom controls i thought were pretty cool until i found out u cant switch the throw nade (shake nunchuck) with reload/pickup weapon( - ). Overall u can rent the game but do not buy it thinking its the best thing in the world since TV dinner like i did :(
Wow, after playing this Wii Game you get a whole new respect and admiration concept for the Console generation, traditional gameplay experience Breaker. The Wii really defied limits on Visuals in this game that looks like a 360 graphicalised game. High Voltage studios is by far the Best 3rd party developer ever to hit Wii. If you were a fan and lover of 007 Goldeneye ,and Perfect Dark for the N64 then this is the game for you and ALL core gamers and gamers looking for a jump into the shooter scene. This Game is the true basis and starter line for which all game quality for the wii should meet at the least, if not go above and beyond this highly set level of quality. The Mystery behind the story and the feel of the AMAZING controls brings a whole new realization and meaning to the idea of a 1stperson shooter game and a game on Wii in general. In ending this review i must say this is an all around Amazing game for Wii, with fully customizable controls and feels to the4 game i give it a 9.99/10.0
Best Shooter on Wii to Date
"I have a new assignment for you Mr. Ford"
This is probably the most famous quote from that game, an awe-inspiring first person shooter with plenty of great characters, easy/hard baddies, and plenty of slick, new guns! While there is only 9 missions in this game, some may take only 5 minutes while others can take you up to 2 or more hours! In missions, its usually pretty easy to find out your next area, even if you don't listen to anything ANYONE says. Graphics are pretty great, but in Multi-player online mode there can be some moments with some pretty bad lag, due to either a rapid mass of rocket launchers being shot or just a bad connection with other players. The campaign mode can take from about 12 hours to around 30 hours if you want to find EVERY secret without the help of a guide. It does get a little tiring after playing the missions two or three times, but that's what multi-player online is for! Overall, Conduit is a great game with an AMAZING storyline, a great buy for Wii owners who want a slick action shooter game!
Finally, a Wii game with gamers in mind!!
I am a big fan of Nintendo, but Nintendo is a company that focuses more on games anyone could play. So when I saw this game, I was a little skeptical about it's quality. But once I played this game, the amount of time an effort put into this game was clearly evident. The full control customization makes it easy to enjoy this game to the full potential. It is also an awesome game for those seeking a challenge. Being an alien invasion game, you may think that it would have a lame cliche storyline. But there is much more to the story then just aliens. There are lots of unexpected turns and plot twists that are sure to keep you interested. This game also features the best online play I have ever seen on a Wii game. It supports 12 players simultaneously online, is easy to use, and still maintains game quality. This game is by far the best shooter I have ever played on the Wii. I absolutely recommend this game to anyone seeking a challenge. Watch out X-Box, The Conduit is up among the finest of shooters.
Good FPS for Wii
If you're on the fence on getting The Conduit, know this: the game has its goods and bads. To its credit, there's one of the best control schemes you'll find, equipped well from the start but totally customizable. There's a deep friend system with Wii Speak chat support for friend matches, one very important pro for online gaming. Storyline is decent in terms of level length, sometimes I found myself unable to complete entire levels in a sitting, but only 9 missions in total is a bit short. Sadly, as enticing as 12 player online multiplayer sounds, this game loses points for having a rough flow (delayed responses, getting killed and saying "how did that happen?") and being hacker infested (rocket launchers) alongside the semi frequent glitched match where you're presented with a dark screen. It has its moments of having fun 15-20 minute matches and granted can be a good time for a single player. What I would have liked to see was a co-op and local multiplayer modes. Thankfully all this will be fixed in the upcoming Conduit 2, which I look forward to.
Pretty good if you're lookin for a fun wii shooter
The conduit has a very good plot. The game got a grip on me from the very beginning. It didn't dissapoint. Throughout the game you get these fun missions that mostly require fighting through hoardes of aliens to get to a nest or a computer or even to protect the president. You shouldn't be very bored while playing this game. But then again it is a game with faults. The controls at the beginning are weird so I had to customize them (such as pushing + instead of 1 to pause). Another error is that a couple of the levels are very long and can get boring at times. Some of the weapons are awful but there are also a lot of good ones.The upgrades he recieves to his suit throughout the game aren't even noticable and he heals very slowly. The aliens also act like they are brainwashed. All they do is make occasional weird grunting noises and stand in one spot. The cons to this game are bad but they shouldn't interfere too much with the gameplay and they can be fixed to your liking. This is a great shooter for any wii owner.
MY FAVORITE WII GAME
This game is the best game for wii(in my opinion atleast). The graphics made my jaw drop. They have a amazing engine. The challange was defintily there. It was hard on the easiest mode. I died 35 time playing on Elevated(Hard). The campagin is short, around 7 hours for me, but theres so much more to do like ASE puzzles, hidden disks, and Acheivements. Yep thats right theres achievements. The story is excellent, though it does end abrubtly.Oh and the music is amazing. The music is really catchy and will still be stuck in my head after writing this review. Theres aton of unlockables, concept are ect. So lets talk about a big drawing point in this game multiplayer. The multiplayer is in a word AMAZING! There are 12 people online and youll find a match of atleast 8 people. There is a ranking system. Youll rank up pretty fast the first few timesthen it will take a long time. There are 13 modes and all of them are fun. ASE football is my favorite mode. So this is a great game that if you dont buy your not smart. GET IT NOW.
Best Multiplayer on Wii!!!
This games single-player is okay, if you play it the first time,but after a while you get bored. But trust me, this game has one of the best multi-players on the Wii. You will love it. You can fight you friends with alien weapons, human weapons, and even supernatural weapons. You will never get bored of it. After a while you will learn these cool tricks you can pull up on your friends. Also their are so many ways to ambush your opponents, or get ambushed. This game has so many places, weapons, or garnades. You will have three types of garnades, flash, whic blind your opponents, fragment, which create a huge explosion, or even drudge, which stick to you opponents until they die out. You can play with up to twelve people. Their are three types of games, free for all, where everyone is on their own, team reaper, where you team up with people to kill others, or team objectives, where you team up with people to complete objectives, before your opponents do.
