- Medical Facility is one of the multiplayer maps
- All maps taken from single-player
- Medical Facility “totally remade to better suit multiplayer gameplay with what the developers call the Human Weapons set (handguns, submachine guns, shotguns, and the like).”
- It’s effective to lock onto your opponent with Z - see how much health he has left
- Head shots do substantial damage, though they don’t always kill opponents instantly
- 180-degree turn button being considered so that you could take someone out at your rear
- Training Complex another Deathmatch map
- Central area with balconies on the perimeter - leaves you open to be sniped
- Everyone starts the match with a rocket launcher

- Takes some time to load in a fresh rocket - Rocket can damage opponent even if the aim isn’t spot on
- WiiSpeak support wasn’t implemented for Nintendo Power’s session, but High Voltage promises it will be included when the “the game hits stores in spring.”

I dont understand why people want this game so much. Yes, the graphics are great. But theres only 3 multiplayer modes, the health system is outdated, the story seems a little bland... Don't get me wrong, I will definatly rent this. But after reading that you cant use wiispeak unless you talk with friends, that REALLY gets me pissed. I bought wiispeak specifically for The Conduit.
I am now realizing that WiiSpeak is a tiny turd placed on the top your TV screen.

What, are you insinuating that a static health system with medical pick-ups that replenish your health is a WORSE system than a regenerating health system? Cause if so, I laugh at you, casual.
ChickeyCantor  +   2215d ago
MAx, the hype might be there becuase of the visuals, but its the controls that will make this game something.

And by looking at video's you cant really say how well it would play unless you had the Wii-mote in hand and the game in your Wii.

Sounds great but I was hoping for a more deep multi-player variety.Using the Wiimotes for melee combat on "Melee only multi-player".

Deathmatch is done to death IMO and High Voltage will need to make it stand out.No point in having the Wiimotes if the online implementation is found in 5 year old shooters.

Either way I can't wait to see online footage and get a new Wii by then as well.I sold my old one because the Wi-Fi went bust

Remember even though Nintendo Power got the first exclusive look knowing HVS they prolly have more surprises up their sleeve.I dont think its so cut and dry imo.
Although its good that this even has a melee attack in it at all although for me since im a pc fps fan i would really like a 180 button.Those come in handy if you know your fps pc game.

Also it says everyone starts with a rocket launcher but from what i read in the scans it seems like that was a setting that can be changed much like all multiplayer shooters like Halo.

Yeah, thr modes are pretty much the usual "vanilla deathmatch" stuff right now but how often are those modes dressed up with different names even on more well known games? As the first game to try a decent number of players in online MP shooters with great GFX too(so MoH online we doesn't coun't and WaW is too gimped, though enjoyable, at 4 v 4)maybe there won't be too much innovation in the modes but I do reckon you'll be able to customise them a lot so you never know whether you'll be able to set up melee only games in the end.

Something else that should be something to look forward to in other upcoming games that use the wiispeak is that this game will only allow you to use wiispeak with people on your friends list.

Yeah, this game is going to be sick.

“the game hits stores in spring.”

Why does HVS keep saying spring? They said the date was June 9th, and that is clearly in the summer!
jeffaustin90  +   2215d ago
June 9th is technically still spring. Hell, the middle of March is still considered winter.

So there is no offline multi player?

LAN was confirmed a long time ago when Sega was announced as the publisher.

I wonder if X-link Kai works with the Wii, if so, screw Nintendo's server.

XlinkKai = The bomb.

Used to play halo2 online(-Lan enabled) with it without having a live account.

Will this be the game that gets me to dust off my wii ???
bigjclassic  +   2215d ago
Thanx Product..
That was some good info, but what about everyone gets a Rocket Launcher?
That is LAME, and they need to change that. WiiSpeak options and 16 people aren't that bad.

Btw-It is always great to be a Wii owner, and 2009 looks awesome for the Wii.

Im thinking what Nintendo Power played where they all started with rocket launchers were a setting much like how you can set different weapon in games such as Halo.

Im thinking this is a setting and can be changed to normal,snipers only,and such.

sorry but there is no LAN :( its on Nintendoeverything now they ahve mroe details and there is no LAN and no local multiplayer. Bummer but it also says split screen could be in the sequal :) but that is a long time to wait :(
Product  +   2215d ago
that is a bummer well i guess its up to the fans that want this...we buy The Conduit we get the the stuff that couldnt happen this time(lan) around next time if sales are enough.
Shnazzyone  +   2215d ago
not enough info for me. I was expecting nintendo power to show the full package. Instead we see more then we've ever seen before but it is still unfinished. Man I want this game.
