Conduit 2 officially announced

The Conduit was one of the more anticipated Wii titles last year, though when it came out it didn’t light sales charts on fire, though we enjoyed it. But it was an admirable effort for developer High Voltage as the game sqeezed graphics out of the Wii in ways thought impossible. Anyway, even though it seemed High Voltage was distancing their efforts from the Wii with a multiplatform release planned for their next game, The Grinder, today they and Sega reaffirmed their waggle commitment with the official announcement of Conduit 2 exclusively for the Wii.

This wasn’t the biggest surprise, as yesterday news broke via leaked info from our sister publication Nintendo Power, which has a full preview in their next issue. But the long and short of it is that the attractive FPS is back, returning with new online co-op modes, including Team Invasion Mode, which sounds a bit like Horde, an addition that’s always welcome.

Above: Whoever said split-screen Vs was dead?

Meanwhile, the initial press release says nothing about using Wii Motion Plus, which is too bad if it goes unused. After playing the shockingly great Red Steel 2 with the device, it now seems like a must for a Wii FPS. However, it does use Wii Speak for online chat, which we’re sure every Wii owner has and enjoys.

    -Gam3rFERlife I am not trying to put the PS3 down, but i think the reason it has the highest rated game liebrary of all time is due to the unusualy low amount of games, besides most of the good stuff on the PS3 is avaliable for the 360 as well, its just that there is a lot more shit games for that system as well as good ones, and the shit is lowering the stats. But who cares about the different systems anyways, well sadly alot of people does, but it is after all the individual games that matters, not what console you play them on, Bioshock is Bioshock both on the PS3 an the 360. As far as this game goes, i have to admitt the screenshots look pretty bad, then again it is only to of them. I played the first one, it was okay, High voltage was definantly on to something, but they failed when it came to level design, setting and story, the gameplay and graphics were good, plus they had some interesting weapons, using the charged thing where you twisted the mote in order to align three plasma projectiles the way you saw fit was pretty cool, that as well as controling the already fired bombs (in lack of a better word) of the shreiker was an expirience that reminded me of using the needler for the first time. As far as multiplayer went for the first game, the problem was mostly the design of the maps, though therer were some good ones, can`t remember their names though. So, in conclusion; Hardware does not matter, software does. Conduit 2 should improve on level design. CLEIP is best.

    The screenshots make me lol. It looks just as bad as the original. The original was inspired, but not that great in the end. The screenshots don't make me hopeful for improvement.
