Most people, myself included, thought first of a lightsaber-based Star Wars title, but after a bit of thought, what I most was excited about was a first-person shooter. The Wii's great Wiimote and Nunchuk design seemed custom-made for an FPS, but the initial batch was disappointing. Red Steel, which seemed to offer both FPS and sword-fighting action was just sad, and the Wii lacked a real honest-to-goodness FPS until Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. After that, the drought remained, despite games like Prime and Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Wii-based FPSes can control like a dream. Thankfully, High Voltage software is out to fix this inexplicable absence with The Conduit.
The Conduit is set in the near future in Washington D.C. The city has come under attack by a race of aliens known as the Drudge, who have launched an assault on humanity for unknown reasons. The Drudge's powerful biological weaponry has given them a huge advantage over humanity, and all hope seemed lost until the appearance of TRUST. TRUST is a Men-In-Black like organization created a long time ago in preparation for the inevitable alien invasion, and they have technology and training far above and beyond those of even the army's most elite soldiers. Players take control of Mr. Ford, one of the agents of TRUST, who is assigned experimental new power armor and assigned to help fend off the Drudge. It isn't the most innovative story, but High Voltage promises a few twists and turns along the way to keep gamers interested in the story."
