Conquest is very uncharacteristic of what Pandemic is capable of. Playing through Conquest, it was surprising to see the attention to detail in the visual department and the failure to execute in creating a smooth experience juxtaposed in the same game. Co-op in campaign mode holds the game together but it is a shame to see the game in the state it is in with bugs and flaws galore. It is questionable why Conquest was made as an uninspired third person action game with FPS mechanics. Kombo can only assume that some dreadful deadlines were set because Conquest feels more like a retreat.
Lasting Appeal: 5.0
