Summary: Let me start by saying I did not play this game online - only single player campaign. It is short! It took me 5 hours and 17 minutes to complete. While I consider myself an above average gamer, I'm sure hardcore gamers can do it faster on their first try. Once I beat the game, I unlocked the "unlimited ammo" and "one shot kill" cheats. So I decided to play another campaign and it took under 3 hours to complete.
Summary: Conduit is a good game at first, but the campaign was a little to short and I didn't find myself wrapped up in it. It's not one of those games you look forward too when you come home from work or school, just a way to kill time. Multiplayer also became old really fast; the immense amount of glitches(my least favourite being the rapid-fire Rocket Launcher glitch)got really old and I would often find myself getting ticked off.
A game that I had been waiting for, turns out to be a major disappointment.

Summary: Two months. Thats how long I waited for this game. I was all hyped up, learning all about the story and just dying to play it. When the Conduit finally came out, I was the first one to get it (in fact I was the only one who got it) when I got home I started to play it and I died like fifty times in the first level because of the clunky controls. After six months of it just sitting on my shelf I decided to sell it to get money for my PS3.
Summary: The single player mode is boring, so don't buy this game for it. Pros: The online play when all goes well is the best game I have ever played. Intuitive controls makes it easy to learn and easy to master. When you get a good game going it is tons of fun and I almost always lose track of time and inevitably sleep. Cons: The online play has major bugs and the cheating is out of control. 1.
Summary: The title says it ALL, I bought this game for online stuff well play and half the time people use hacks on it like the multi shot rocket launcher that fires 3 or 4 rockets at a time instead of 1, no after 1 you reload well the other guy don't reload only after 3 or 4 shots oh that's not it, they can shoot you through walls too. How can that happen? More hack I assure that even makes this game no fair with these hackers just my advice AVOID THIS GAME FOR ONLINE!!!
Summary: As a novice,I thought that I would enjoy playing this game on the easiest level. And so it proved, I was quite enjoying the game; I had got used to the controls and the weapons, and I thought I was doing rather well. But then I got to level 3, The Jefferson Memorial. This is close to impossible even at the easy level. I am extremely frustrated at getting absolutely nowhere for over a week now.
Summary: In my opinion The Conduit is an average example of the first person shooter genre with lovely controls let down by poor level design and lack of sensible progression in difficulty. The levels in the game are all cliched and repetitive consisting largely of running through corridors, sewer tunnels, and narrow alleys.
Excerpt: The Conduit is a first person shooter title from Sega, designed from the ground up for Nintendo's Wii console. It follows the exploits of secret agent Michael Ford as he discovers a mysterious alien conspiracy unfolding in the shadows of Washington D.C. Taking orders from "The Trust," a covert (and very patriotic) branch of the secret service, Ford must save the day while visiting a series of D.C's most famous landmarks.
Pros: Solid first person shooter gameplay on a console that needs it, original ideas, doesn't look hideo
Cons: Doesn't live up to the enormous hype, loses focus in most areas other than control .
Summary: I had heard a lot of differentiating things about The Conduit, but I decided to go ahead and buy it anyway. If you are a fan of first person shooters, The Conduit isn't a bad choice. The Single player mode was a bit disappointing, the story was so and so, the interface seemed a little sketchy at times. But.. What really brings the ratings in this game is the online mode. It's loads of fun and the interface works perfectly on it.
