5.0 out of 5 stars FPS action finally comes to the Wii, 10 July 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Conduit (Wii) (Video Game)
Following a slightly clichéd story, the Conduit has you tackling wave after wave of aliens and bad guys in suits in an ultimately fun and attractive adventure.

The graphics and controls are what set this game above other attempts at bringing a good FPS to the Wii - you can tell they've spent considerable time and effort tweaking everything to work well, and it shows.

The single-player is easily capable of keeping you occupied for many hours, but it's the many multiplayer modes that the game's huge replay value really come from.

The online action is relentless, lagfree and very addictive - you have been warned!

All in all, just what the Wii needs, and here's to a follow up!

I really enjoyed the Single player mode and what's more is there are check points, say if your halfaway through a mission and you want a rest, and your turn off the game, you wont lose your progress since you'll start again from your last checkpoint.

You are correct, I played this last night and it saves your last Checkpoint during a mission so you don't have to start the mission from scratch, which is a great touch.##

Not to piss on your fire or anything, but that *has* been standard in most FPS since the original Halo, if not before.

Actually a lot of Wii games make you play forever before you can get to a save point. Red Steel for example. You have to complete a mission wich takes around 45 mins before you can take a break. Yes there are check points but turn off the game and you have to start at the beginning of the mission if its not completed.

Couldn't agree more,I recently got both The Conduit and Farcry Vengeance and was more than relieved when I discovered that The Conduit has 'hard' checkpoints,I've had Red Steel for a while now but haven't found the time to sit there and do a whole mission,I've done the first two, and it's annoying that you can't skip the cutscenes as well.
