Ari_Gold has a Wii, I played Mario Kart Wii against him. He didn't say anything mean in this thread, so I won't post the results.

He called you a stalker, now post results...

“If any creator has not played Mario, then they’re probably not a good creator. That’s something I can say with 100 percent confidence. Mario is, for game creators, the development bible.

Thing is, it only averaged an 8.1 from the 5 nintendo exclusive reviews, which is better than the metascore but not exactly mindblowing. So that more or less destroys the argument that there's a huge anti-wii FPS or whatever media bias against it, right?

I called that score in some older threads (more or less). Too bad for Wii owners though. Even though it's a subjective thing, and certain gamers might think The Conduit is the cat's ass, a higher-meta score is not a bad thing.

Chinese food for breakfast


Most people that own the game say it's great, so I really don't care for all these reviews. That 40% and 58% review were totally unfair anyway bringing down the average.

Giant bomb is probably the most unreasonable review. 1up and gamespot are low, but they are known to give low scores to other platforms too. So it's not huge anti-wii FPS, but it still is about 10 points lower than it should be for the metascore.

I picked up Bioshock last week as all the comparisons people have been between the Conduit and it. Graphics in it are little more polished, but not majorly. They are more consitantly good, however the Conduit has some good areas, and some rather bland areas. Too little movable and destructable in the enviornments in the Conduit. Level design is better. The findable in the conduit do not work as well and are less rewarding. Bioshock plays a little recording and you can keep walking. Besides for being harder to find (which isn't exactly a bad thing), but what is bad, in The Conduit you either have to read it (and so they are rather short), or listen in on the radio and stay close to it or it gets too soft to hear, not to mention diffult to switch stations on the radio. Should be a way to pick up the radio if they were going to do that as you don't want to be baby sitting a radio while you could be moving forward. I see no reason why Bioshock couldn't be ported to the wii. The enemies AI in the Conduit seem to be better (although I haven't tried the hardest level of bioshock, so maybe they improve). The Twists in Bioshock are far less believable as it just makes so many of the characters stupid. Playing with the wiimote is far more fun then the dual analog. The carry two weapon at a time limit in The Conduit is also a big minus.

Overall I think I will get more enjoyment out of The Conduit than Bioshock. That is mainly because the online rocks! Comparing single player, The Conduit definitely didn't do as well as it should have. It's not bad, just a little short and the findables are not rewarding enough to bother lookinig for.

I think no one was expecting an awesome singleplayer out of this game. We have metroid, mario and Zelda for that.

After 1 hour of gameplay i'm surprised how good the graphics and controls are, i;ll give it an 8 standing on that fact alone.

Yup, I'd agree with that uppertone. It's worth a score of 8-9/10 on the customisable controls and HUD, the visuals and the multiplayer alone imo. The Conduit isn't going to be leaving my Wii console in months, after completing the single player (am 88% of the way through atm) on the default difficulty level I'm going to play it again on the harder difficulty levels and make sure I find all the hidden items. And the online multiplayer has already given me over 12 hours of entertainment and I can see myself coming back to it again and again. The Halo influence on the multiplayer has certainly done it some good, it's just as much fun and just as addictive as the PC SKU of Halo 1 years ago.


Thats alot of time playing Conduit...

^click the license to level it up! Please, and thanks in advance!



I'm going to eventually get this game.

And I'm not that dissapointed in the reviews, those scores were expected.
