Biggest Disappointment of the Year (So Far)

I tried to love this game. Honestly, I did. The Conduit is one of my favorite games on the Wii, so I picked this up, invited my cousin over, and fired it up. We were shocked. How could this happen. The first game was an awesome game filled with amazing gameplay and graphics and a subpar story, and the multiplayer stole at least 20 hours of my life. I spent about 30 minutes on Conduit 2's multiplayer. As we sat there, our mouths open at the horrible story, overused mechanics, and cliche moments, we thought to ourselves "why?"

Graphics: Pretty good, not much has changed

Story: Yuck. Thats all I'm going to say.

Characters: Michael Ford is way to much of a Duke Nukem rip-off. Not a good idea, High-Voltage. Andromeda (new female character) walks about 10 steps from where you first meet her and then yells at you for the rest of the game. Prometheus gets a voice change and now sounds like 343 Guilty Spark from Halo. Please, no. The antagonist, John Adams, is even more of an idiot. In Conduit, he was a floating bald head seen only in cutscenes. Now he's just a badly animated fat bald guy who only appears in cutscenes. It seems like giving him a body gave him less of a personality. Oh, and the Drudge are somehow your friends now.

Gameplay: If you liked Conduit's gameplay, nothing much has changed. Although, Conduit did feel more precise.

Multiplayer: Bad map design. Stupid currency system. Bad map design. Idiotic lags and disconnection. Bad Map Design. BAD MAP DESIGN!!!!!!!!

Some of the jokes were funny and all, but overall this game wasn't what I was expecting at all. Only rent this game if you were a die-hard fan of the first one, and even then, don't expect much.

Weak

Very disappointing

I am a very avid gamer, I am very pickey on games I would like and not like. Like on things such as graphics, storyline, gameplay, multiplayer or not, online enabeled or not, controls, and characters. This a list of the type of quality and/or opinios. It would be scaled frome 1-10, 1 being the worst, and 10 being the best. (for Wii)

Graphics: 5, call of duty grapics better

storyline: 2, its the classic storyline, evil arch nemisis thats going to destroy the world, and rescue some hot girl somewhere.

gameplay: 5, good at first, then boring

multiplayer: 5, boring

online: 6, yes it is online enabeld, but pretty dumb

controls: 1-5, 1 being that you dont have a classic controller

characters: 4, only one hot chick, (boobs and butt are huge!) but the others, quite dumb

I feel like the creators of this game could have done a much better job at this game. I had high hopes for this game. But im really dissapointed.(Ha, good thing i has gamefly :D)

This game is not worth waiting for, dont get this game, its a bad word!

Horrible

Worst control scheme ever

Apparently, you keep the remote control pointed at center of screen at all times and use your left hand to move, except that you always end up going around and around in nauseating circles. Pointless exercise in futility. Aiming is awful. Movement is awful. Gameplay is awful. What a horrible, horrible experience. And then those who can actually play this title say the story is lacking. Yikes. Fastest return ever of a rental.
