Excerpt: Sega ’s Conduit 2 is the latest shooter outing on the Wii and sequel to 2008’s The Conduit . Once again you take control of Michael Ford, now self-employed harbinger of revenge, against the militant Trust organisation. The plot kicks off where the previous game ends, with Ford leaping through a Conduit to who-knows-where and sees him and his trusty “disembodied alien in a ball” Prometheus, the All Seeing Eye, searching for the last of an ancient alien race.
Excerpt: Whenever making a purchase, perceived value can never be understated and that’s why many consumers and critics alike have had issues with the Call of Duty Map Packs in the past. We’ll start off with the new Zombie offering – this map features an all-star cast of killers including Sarah Michelle Gellar, Danny Trejo, Michael Rooker and Robert Englund.
Excerpt: Shooters on the Wii are, unfortunately, few and far between. There have been a few good ones like the James Bond game which recently won Game of the Year for the platform, and other titles like a modified Call of Duty have eventually made their way to the Wii's shores. But Conduit is still one of the few series created from the ground up for this platform. Conduit 2 is developer Sega's follow up to its 2009 shooter, The Conduit.
Summary: I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes and having some fun online. Yes, this sequel was released last Tuesday and it was kind of a big deal. I am of course talking about The Conduit 2 . Wait, what did you think I was talking about?
Excerpt: I haven't played my Nintendo Wii for quite some time now and all it really does these days is gather dust and ever so slightly increase my power bill as it's continuously on standby mode... waiting for some action. The last great game I enjoyed on the Nintendo Wii was House of the Dead Overkill but since then, my PlayStation 3 seems to have become the predominant console and I often think to myself, where have all the good games gone for the Wii?
Conclusion: En marge de la partie solo finalement assez courte, le titre jouit d'une partie multijoueur extrêmement complète. En effet, il faut compter sur pas moins de quatorze modes jouable en local ou en ligne. Nous retrouvons notamment des sempiternels deathmatch, team deathmatch et capture the flag (avec ou sans HUD), mais aussi un mode VIP dans lequel il faut tuer un ennemi précis, un mode domination de zones, un mode de protection de générateurs, ou encore une partie de...
Pros: Prise en main efficace et précise, Armes originales, Mode multijoueur complet, Variété des environnements en solo
Cons: Réalisation graphique bancale, IA décevante, Scénario qui n'a pas de sens
Summary: Despite being unimpressed by much of Conduit 2 , I can’t say that there is anything technically bad about it. Diehard fans of the genre will no doubt be excited by a new entry, but most will find the game wanting. The corridors are many, the characters and enemies bland, and the AI predictable; the multiplayer, while straightforward, does fare better, with the naturally addictive leveling-and-customization system that is so prevalent this generation.
