Who's having fun with The Conduit?

"Only a week old, The Conduit is already building a nice community online. Interestingly enough many review sites are actually giving this game bad scores and reviews (Gamepro, Edge, etc.). Although for the many who are enjoying this title neither a score nor a review can take away the fact that The Conduit is actually a great online fps on Wii."

Having a blast. For being so new this game actually has a load of gamers playing online. Good ones too.

Most reviewers have missed the pont HVS were trying to make. They knew they were basically filling a void and NOT competing with KZ2 or Halo-and they seem to have done this by conquering the Wii Connect service and providing a few decent modes online.

WaW had bad connection issues yet even as the poor relation of the HD game that sold pretty well so it was pretty likely that as long as The Conduit worked pretty well it would get a good community going-hell even MoH did!

I bought the game on day one, and the single player is so annoying. There is nothing fun about it. Thankfully, I don't feel the same way about online. That is the main reason I'm keeping the game, rather than selling it on eBay. Online is a little laggy, but also very VERY fun =)


I think the reason that reviews seems to miss the point was because the conduit dev was claiming that the game will have graphic "similar to games on PS3 or 360" (hint KZ2 or Halo) that's why reviewers seems to be reacting that way.

The developer never made those claims. They delivered on their real claim which was to use effects so far only seen in 360/PS3 titles. Game looks great for a Wii game and IMO comes close to some first gen 360 games in many ways. Granted the Wii will never do PS3/360 but nobody ever said it would either.

I thought online would be easier than it is. Man, it's tough. Lots of fun and fast paced. I think there is a divide with gamers on this game just like it was when the Wii first launched (during Wii Sports). The critics get overly critical and just don't know how to have fun and enjoy the game. I'm surprised at the amount of poorly reported features on a lot of the reviews. It's definitely the most fun I've had on the Wii system since I got it in 2006.
