    Conduit 2 is a good example of a sequel done right: it's an evolution of the previous game with a multitude of major improvements. With a bolder, brasher single player game, for better or worse, and a far more robust multiplayer mode, Conduit 2 isn't just a good first person shooter by Wii standards. It's a damn good shooter, period.

    In the end, I enjoyed Conduit 2 but my only drawback was the game was over before I knew it. Even so, this is the best the Nintendo Wii has to offer in quite some time and if you're needing your first person shooter fix than this is the game to get. It may not break the mould in terms of originality but when it comes to controls and gameplay, Conduit 2 is very sturdy.

    A wonderful level design and nice graphics will offer a very good Wii shooter. In Conduit 2 you will get action from start to finish.
  4. Conduit 2 is a huge improvement over the original game. It's still not without its problems, such as its awkward controls and the B-movie production values but it's still well worth a look if you're a fan of first-person shooters.

    It's a lot of fun, and while it's not without flaws, I think it's a definite improvement on the original, and certainly one of the better multiplayer shooters available on the Wii.

    Conduit 2 has awesome multiplayer... for a Wii game; the connection is a little slow, and there was some lag every now and again.

    Awesome graphics, jaggy gameplay, grasping story and loads of action.

    It's fun to play, has some awesome multiplayer and is a massive step forward from the first game in terms of design and philosophy.

    Conduit 2 is the good sequel to High Voltage's The Conduit. It features good graphics and good multiplayer, but a too-short single player campaign.

    Conduit 2 isn't a revolutionary shooter by any means. The plot is cookie-cutter, the graphics and sound design are good but not exactly eye- or ear-popping, and the campaign doesn't present a plethora of new features. The experience is still enjoyable, especially the multiplayer portion and its robust gameplay options. The game still shows a willingness to experiment with a few new guns and modes, and those who love finding bonus material will find a bevy of them here. It's a familiar but solid shooter that Wii owners will appreciate with open arms.

    Conduit 2's cheeky dialogue and creative weapons are amusing, and there are enough multiplayer options to keep you busy, although not likely for the whole of spring. Conduit 2 isn't top of its class, but it's a fun B-movie experience nonetheless.

    A quite decent FPS and certainly an improvement over the original. It's quite unoriginal, though, and the opening level is very dull, but it gets better after that. [June 2011]

    Even with several errors and limitations, the robust content is here, collecting various virtues, and, at the same time, primary failures, which, even with the help of patches, are condemned. But they are not condemned enough to commit an injustice and say that Conduit is not worth the play. No way.

    Conduit 2 is a good action game which fills a gap in the Wii games library, with great controls and good gameplay. It lacks that extra quality which would turn it into one of the best games in its genre, but its campaign and multiplayer mode offer quite a lot of fun.

    The sequel to The Conduit's out on the streets, offering a bunch of new multiplayer options, graphics improvements and so on. The problem's that it's basically the same game with a few new gameplay modes, including the long-awaited cooperative. 'Tis a pity the plot isn't able the archieve something we haven't seen hundred times before, but still its a buy to consider if you want same fast-paced action.

    Conduit 2 is an honest, rewarding shooter, which lacks the depth of some other rival brands, but still succeeds in delivering genuine bullet-packed action.

    It's not telling the most original story, the action doesn't feature much diversity, and you're not going to care about the characters. But if you want action, and you want a strong multiplayer title to fire up and explore, you've got a winner here.

    Conduit 2 certainly has some issues, but it's heartening to see that High Voltage Software took people's criticisms of the first title into account when developing this follow-up. [Apr 2011, p.76]

    I am severely disappointed by the single player length. I beat it in 3 hours. I am DEAD SERIOUS!!!
    Yes, there are objects to scan to make it

    Yes, there are objects to scan to make it longer, but that shouldn't be the only thing that makes it long.
    Fortunately, it's multi player is damn good. Local or online, you can't go wrong with the multi player in this game. It's just too bad that I'm more of a single player guy. If you want a good multi player game on Wii, get this game. If you want a good single player game, keep looking.

    Saga & High Voltage try again- why? Not sure who this game is for? Maybe little kids, or your Dad who has never played a shooter. SingleSaga & High Voltage try again- why? Not sure who this game is for? Maybe little kids, or your Dad who has never played a shooter. Single player is so short- less than 4hr of uninspired game play. Multiple-player experience is so lacking from it's competitors on the "big boy" systems! Story and art direction seem thrown together from the leftover bag of 90's shooters. I feel bad for anyone who thought this was going to be anything other than a crappy rework of the first. The game looks ok considering its on the Wii, but looks cant hide the uninspired game design. Sega must be feeling the same with the lack of marketing around this game. Full Review »
