The Conduit, High Voltage Software’s Wii exclusive sci-fi shooter, hits store shelves next week. While I’m still not sure how the game is going to be from a story or gameplay standpoint, I do know that High Voltage has poured their extensive technical prowess into turning out a high-quality visual experience mixed with some fantastic controls and weapons. An array of fun weapons usually keeps me going in a first-person shooter, and if the controls work–which they do, given their level of customization that makes them the closest thing to a keyboard and mouse ever seen on a console–then I’m bound to stick with it, even if the story is a letdown.
Let’s hope that isn’t the case with The Conduit, as it looks pretty promising. For now, I’ve assembled a bunch of screens and some videos for you to check out as you wait for its release next week. We’ll have a review for The Conduit up once we’ve tested and played through both the single player campaign and the multiplayer modes against live competition.
