E310 Media | First Look at The Conduit 2 (Wii) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

At E3 last week High Voltage revealed their latest Wii effort, the sequel to its luke-warm first person shooter, The Conduit.

Whilst the game, one of its first titles for Wii, had some pitfalls, it was and is one of the best in its genre for Nintendo's box. The studio believe that there's still a lot more juice that can be squeezed, and whilst improving the visual and gameplay engines, have acknowledged fan and press feedback.

Without giving too much away, our protagonist in the first game finds himself surrounded by enemies and venures into new locations across the globe, breaking through the US restrictions and trying to encompass a more unique art direction.

The controls, praised for its accuracy and ease, haven't been tweaked much, but High Voltage are including new abilities for Mr. Ford and co to perform. Multiplayer, online and experience points are amongst some of the new features to enjoy on the side.

Looks amazing. Really liked the first game despite it's obvious flaws but they seem to be focusing on fixing everything for this game. Can't wait. Smilie

Wow, this actually looks really nice! It sounds like they really polished it up and made it lots of fun.

I'd love to get some friends to buy this so we could play some serious multiplayer on the Wii. Does anyone know if it will use Wii Speak?

Nice Smilie

Mario Kart's online worked well enough, but it's just not that much fun playing online when you can't talk to your friends. Glad to see Conduit 2 won't have this problem.

Wow, it actually looks better then Conduit 1.
I loved the first game, but didn't play it very far due to time restraints on my side.
I will continue and certainly will buy the second one. I believe they will nail it this time, even satisfy German gaming-press to an extend. I hope they do, because they were not satisfied on the first, complaining about it not being as great looking and interesting as an X360 shooter - which is kind of ridiculous, considering it was the first game from High Voltage (at least the first shooter).

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

It seems that they have a cloaking device as a perk in the game!!! I loved the first game (except for the hackers) and I am really anticipating the release of The Conduit 2!!!
