Finally, we here at Wii3 have a traditional styled shooting game worth playing, well somewhat anyway. Hats off to High Voltage Software for at least trying to fill the gaping void of traditional style Wii shooting game choices. Although Conduit 2 is not the most memorable game on the market, it is one that can at least motivate you to keep playing.
Conduit 2 builds on the sensation of the original game. In the latest game, players fight and defend to the far reaches of the earth, vying to prevent an alien invasion. Players, equipped with powerful high-tech weapons, experience action-packed movie quality battles, multiple tiers on each level and giant boss type enemies to face. Overall, Conduit 2 is a good game that offers plenty of fun. Here is our take, the good, the not so good and the ugly.
The game is fun! In fact, we here at Wii3 believe it to be far better than the original. The storyline is completely different and a lot more lighthearted than the first Conduit. Your avatar navigates the globe rather than the dry government regulated platform as before. Conduit 2 almost seems like a game independent of its predecessor.
Conduit 2 allows for both offline and online co-op modes and online battles. Also, this go round, the developers did weaponry justice with some big and powerful weapons. Additionally, they also provided players with lots of humor and bonuses, which enhances game play.
Precision of the Wii remote during play is remarkable. If a player chooses, they can opt for a controller, but precision suffers a bit.
Regardless to how much fun this game is and regardless of the fact that it does fill a void in the Wii game showcase, the bad is really bad. The biggest complaint we have is that completion came way to fast and way to easy. The other issues are with one of the games best features, the multi-player modes. Oftentimes during play, the console would lag because of a slower connection. Another issue with the game is that some of the battles are predictable. However, even with the predictable moments, the game still manages to hold our attention.
If the Wii2 is actually released later this year as rumored, High Voltage Software may be able to release a more enhanced version of the game. The issue of lagging and slow connections could also be resolved with a faster console that boasts faster connection speeds.
