The Conduit in motion

Sega released this new trailer of The Conduit showing some environments from the Washington DC level. Not bad at all for a Wii game.

The stream is going really slow.

I think someone mentioned it earlier, just wanted to point out that it's not just them.

Looks alright i guess, though i don't see how it's benefiting from the wiimote. Seems like a regular pad would be able to do the job just fine.

Are you kidding? The wiimote is the main thing this ugly and painfully generic game has going for it, it's just a shame it has none of the style of Metroid Prime. As an FPS control scheme the wiimote is great and claiming that a standard pad is "just as good" only shows you have never used it yourself or deliberately tuned out all the reviewers and gamers who have talked about the fact it is superior when done right. Unfortunately the only Wii games so far that have really nailed the control are Metroid and The Conduit which is a shame because the one thing the wiimote actually really works well for in terms of "core" genres is FPS.

The engine seems good but the colors and the design are/is quite annoying.

Megido: You obviously never played a shooter with a mouse. :) The Wiimote is the one controller that comes as close as possible to this experience.

I prefer to play my FPS with a pc-flava so that's not quite right, i just don't think the wiimote substitutes the mouse any better than a pad.

Looks pretty good for a Wii game imo. But the controls look very ... ehm ... inconvenient.

Okay, sorry then. ;) I always feel quite constrained playing shooters with a controller (well at least in killzone 2 i had to..), with the wiimote it's okay. ;)

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (54 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (7 Hours ago)
