    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.

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

    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 like a typical B-movie: action, action and even more action. Sometimes the events try to be very spectaculair but somehow it never seems to grab you by the throat. That doesn't matter though, because Conduit 2 is a decent game.

    The Conduit 2 is a significantly improved experience over the previous game, though without adding anything new.

    Sadly, aside from a sharp online Wii experience, Conduit 2 rarely impresses, relying too much on generic drudgery and sad attempts to capture the magic of more popular titles; worse yet, the storyline and characters seem aimless and forgettable.

    There's only one 4-minute bit in the entire thing that was fun to play, and that was tailgunning in the spaceship. So at least the whole review wasn't negative, amirite?

I don't know what you other people think, but i think they did really well. Making a campaign is hard for others. You may say i finished it in 3 hours but that is because you spent it all just trying to get the campaign over with. For me, i like to explored around and find all the secrets in the game. I think they also did good on the multiplayer, because of no more hackers or glitches in the game. I like that you also get to choose what weapons you get to start with and what your guy gets to look like and it is much easier to upgrade than in the first one. I hope they do make a 3rd Conduit. It would be really amazing what they would come up with. Expand

Lots of different locations, very satisfying kills, and very tongue in cheek humour along the way. I still prefer my FPS games on the PC with keyboard and mouse, but Conduit 2 on the Wii was a lot of fun. Expand

This is an excellent FPS that improves (in some areas, greatly improves) on nearly all the faults of the original game. Yes, it's the single-player mode is kind of short with some bad voice acting and dialogue, but it has it where it counts in gameplay and multiplayer plus some really good graphics. There are some glitches, but it includes a patching system to fix them and to thwart hackers. The amazing motion controls (which include MotionPlus support) make the experience better than any FPS on the HD consoles. The multiplayer in this game is basically Halo 3 with lower resloution graphics but much better controls. Expand

    Conduit 2 is not a flawless game. The voice acting and story is ridiculous, and I don't know how much of that was intentional. The graphicsConduit 2 is not a flawless game. The voice acting and story is ridiculous, and I don't know how much of that was intentional. The graphics and art direction are solid but a bit gaudy and very uneven (you can tell exactly what had the most time put into it) A few levels are obviously converted multiplayer maps. The level design feels "off". The AI, while improved from the original, freezes up sometimes and doesn't have the same intelligence to it as rival FPSes. However, I had a blast playing this game, mostly due to the controls and imaginative weapons. With the possible exception of Killzone 3 + Move, this has the best controls I've ever seen in a console FPS. It's a shame hardcore gamers rejected motion controls, because this game bridges the gap between console gamepads and the PC keyboard and mouse. The weapon selection is very refreshing compared to its competition and reminded me of Duke Nukem 3D, though my favorite was straight out of BioShock - a weapon that shoots enemies with pheromones designed to attract killer insects. The single player is very short (about 4-6 hours), but the levels are varied and open and High Voltage tried hard to mix things up, so it never becomes a total drudge (ha ha) like the first game. However, it was the multiplayer that made the first game get noticed, and the sheer number of multiplayer modes here is amazing. There's co-op, splitscreen mode, an online multiplayer system and I haven't even finished going through all the different modes, suit upgrades and maps, and it easily makes up for the short singleplayer. Conduit 2 will get buried under Portal 2, SOCOM and MK9 and it'll probably sell even less than the original. Maybe it deserves that. But it's obvious High Voltage put a lot of love into this, and I think it ties with GoldenEye as the best FPS on the Wii. Who knows? Maybe Conduit 3 for the 3DS will become an all-out parody of FPSes like Halo. Finally, it's a stupid little thing, but I love how the doors in every level have their own elaborate unlocking sequences Expand
