The Conduit gets 8.6 from IGN

IGN’s given The Conduit 8.6/10, which is likely to come as relief to the Wii “hardcore”. Snip:

It’s not revolutionary, but the Conduit is a great first-person shooter designed just for Wii owners. While the game does not turn the genre upside-down, it is innovative in certain areas — for example, it features the most customizable, precise and enjoyable controls of any console shooter created, hands down.

The campaign’s five-to-eight hours long, apparently. Sounds like it could be a lot worse. Hit the link for the full thing.

    Hmm. A ‘first out the gate’ IGN review of a Nintendo game by, of all people, Matt Casamassina.

    Yeah, I think I’ll wait for second and third opinions from more historically objective people.

    ONM gave it 76% in their last issue. Make of that what you will.

    I think the IGN score will be one of the highest it gets, anyway.

    I like what I’ve seen of the Conduit to be fair. If I was buying games at the moment, I’d certainly be buying this.

    Every time someone says that Wii controls ‘reinvent the genre’, I always find them fiddly and uncomfortable. :-|

    that’s what my sister says, as well. She ditched MP3 because of the controls, she played it for 30 seconds and left the room in pain
