Conduit 2 review - Joystiq

"If you're looking for a solid FPS on a Nintendo console, go pick up Activision's GoldenEye. Heck, break out your N64 instead and replay Perfect Dark. Even that story makes more sense, and, to be honest ... the graphics are a little better. " - Joystiq

Having trouble believing it's a 2/10 game. Looks decent enough.

The ending is a battle in a circular level in which you duck behind a pillar, jump out and shoot, and repeat. This is the very essence of 1/5 (no....0/5!) level design.

The level design is awful, the story is beyond ridiculous, and the graphics are indeed very ugly almost even by 5th gen standards.

This review is well justified and makes excellent points.

wow, someone has some alter motives...

Can I at least read a negative review that can convince me they played the game, and more than just watching the absolutely crazy ending.

Or please define for me what poor level design is and why Conduit 2 has to live up to some kind of standard when big open battlefield with a pretty little road saying "go here" gets no such criticism?

I have the game, I played the first, the first was meh but this one is a blast. Is it the best FPS I've ever played? Probably not, my heart still belongs to Half-Life 2 and Metroid Prime, but the game is fun for people who don't have their head so far up their butts that they can just learn to enjoy a game and not literally regurgitate every same damn thing parroted by every single negative review of this game. God, its like Metroid Other M all over again...

I swear I was just thinking that. Other M was awesome but reviewers ripped it to pieces. This gen is so lopsided

I thought Other M was awesome. You can check it out here if you like:

Also, check out our review of Conduit 2:

Although I'm not entirely trying to plug our review, I am stating that Conduit 2 is worth more than a 1/5. The multiplayer was off and on almost broken, but the story could leave it contending on the next nintendo console.

Wait what happened? I thought Joystiq was a respectable site? That score, and that Perfect Dark comment can't come from any place other than pure Wii hate. Dislike the Wii all you want, but Conduit 2 is one of the best looking games on the system, and leaps and bounds above anything the 64 was able to do. Maybe they're just trolling for hits from Wii haters? How pathetic.

Hey Joystiq, your bias is showing....
