The game has a good concept to it but lacks the punch to make it a great game. The campaign mode is the highlight of the game. Multiplayer could use a overhaul. Controls are great as advertised. Probably a good rental game or a buy it used game.
Don't believe the hype that High Voltage software built up for this Wii exclusive. This is an average - 3-star - game. In fact The Conduit is pretty disappointing, in my opinion. Overall the levels, weapons and bad guys were pretty generic and the story was underwhelming. Also, I found there were too many necessary controls to map it to my Wii Perfect Shot Gun from Nyko, which would have been blast and a half to play with. I purchased this game on day one and sold it within a few weeks. I played the first player campaign only and did not get into the online content.
In retrospect it's no wonder Nintendo's first party games sell the best when Sega and other companies are making sub-par, okay at best - games.
There's definitely a lot of promise for future first person shooters on the Wii though, especially with the release of The Wii MotionPlus. I'm certainly hoping Nintendo releases a new Wii remote with the Motion Plus system built right in!
If you are looking for a good first-person shooter, I would recommend the Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition, three great games in one package - it's practically Value City!
