Review: The Conduit...The Big Fish … With Guns (TGH)

TGH writes:
"Hype can be a very dangerous thing, and there isn't any game currently out for the Wii right now that was released with more hype than Sega's latest, "The Conduit." It was supposed to be the salvation for the hardcore gamers that are willing to venture to the Kingdom of the Wii. It's a AAA-level, FPS on a party-game console that's basically running last generation's tech. Does it live up to everything we were told it was going to be?

The review is spot-on about the controls (how some reviewers -coughGameInformercough -- actually wished for dual analog tells me they're just not very good at aiming), and the graphics, too.

For me, the multiplayer makes up for just about every shortcoming of the single player mode. But the game still has faults. Hopefully they get resolved for a sequel.
