I decided to take a look at High Voltage's track recored and it is awful.

I'm looking at the average review scores of their games and most of them are in the 40s to 60s. They have only made two games out of their like 50 that aren't below an 80, and both of those were co-developed with another dev. Hell their last game got a 1.5 from IGN.

Damn, I fucked up, I should have bought a PSP instead. I'm already bored of this POS...

Idk...FPS's on the Wii are garbage. The first Conduit did not have good graphics (like EVERYONE said it did) and the gameplay was awful and buggy.

Fine I exaggerated but hell, those 3 screenshots are pretty damn comparable. It's textures aren't as good but it has better backgrounds and far less jaggies. And hey, it's a launch title from 2001.

True, its pretty pathetic. But...



There is no doubt that the Wii is pathetic when it comes to graphics. But games like that I feel like they are trying to do too much with too little of power. But still, games like MadWorld look pretty damn good for the Wii.

Look at Kirby Epic Yarn (Lol...epic) and DK Country Returns. They are impressive with graphics.

The second one? The one with the AK47 is Goldeneye and the one with the blue alien thing is The Conduit (the first).

I lost interest in the first conduit real quick. I remember it took 5 minutes to start an online death match and it was a very laggy experience. Glad I only paid $10 for it.

I don't know the conduit 2 seems a pretty good wii alternative for halo reach.
Anyway graphics don't make a game. Gameplay does. Razz

Gameplay, at least in the first, was pretty boring to me.

The reason it's hyped so much is because it's the only decent FPS exclusive the Wii has.

The graphics engine conduit uses is pretty powerful for a wii game. Also you guys are forgetting about metroid prime 3.
