Summary: Parents need to know that this is a T-rated first-person shooter with tamer violence as compared to M-rated games in the genre. Players can use an array of weapons such as pistols, machine guns, shotguns, alien rifles, and grenades.
Conclusion: Having played for more than a full day now, I can’t help but wonder what Blizzard has been doing all these years. Work on the game started 11 years ago and while it is a fun and polished experience, the amount of actual game content is a bit sparse.
Summary: Sleek, precise game control and technically impressive visuals are among the few positive marks one can give The Conduit . The lack of originality is, frankly, mind-boggling, and this is a problem for both the visual aesthetic and the general flow of the gameplay.
Summary: The Conduit is a much better demonstration of the engine that runs the game instead of actually being an enjoyable single player experience. However HVS have nailed the Wii controls perfectly and have created what is easily the best online interface compared to any other Wii game out there.
