Much better.

Anyway ever since they've shown footage of the game I've felt that the art's gone a bit more stylized. Maybe it's just the simplistic art.

The art book had some awesome looking aliens and it's a shame they weren't put into the game. The Conduit definitely seemed to be bigger than what was released. Story stuff and characters were removed and so were some interesting levels and enemy designs.

Hopefully all that stuff or at least all the stuff they have planned for Conduit 2 make it in.

Also this quote seemed interesting.
Is post-release DLC possible?
Yes, we are discussing many options at this time but we are not ready to discuss anything solid yet.
Probably going to end up as nothing though. :lol

It looks a bit shinier and a little more solid but it still looks horribly uncoordinated. Every shot looks like it's from a completely different game.

Why do people keep saying "Looks great" and the like?

The backgrounds look worse than PS2 games. I think this looks awful.
If you hadn't told me what this was, I would think it was a low budget PC game from 10 years ago or something.

Really not meant as a flame but from what little glimpse of N.O.V.A 2 for iphone it looked better than this, I'm very disappointed.

I agree, but I remember the first screens from the first game, which eventually made a huge leap in quality once the shaders were applied. Even from the HQ footage of the first level of Conduit 2 you can see it looks better than the rig pic here.

Well, you probably very well know that people mean they look good for a Wii game.

Nice to see the Wii get another shooter.

It doesn't look good for a Wii game though.

High Voltage just doesn't seem to understand that the Wii is limited in terms of horsepower and having the skills to hide areas where it would be apparent is just as important as having the skills to replicate fancy shader effects. They are just throwing everything out there, and the end result is an ugly mess. MP3 doesn't use a fraction of techniques conduit does yet looks so much better.

Put it this way: would this game look significantly better in dolphin?

Dunno, think the original did pretty well on Dolphin.



Considering the game is certainly not huge budget (funded almost entirely in house), HVS does a pretty good job.

I wouldn't call the Wii a current gen from a graphical point of view. Its motion controls is what made it a next gen system when it was released.

Didn't Conduit 2 go multi-platform by the way? And am I crazy or isn't the PS3/Xbox360 versions meant to be top-down perspective?

You're thinking of the Grinder.

You're thinking of The Grinder. HVS has stated that the Conduit franchise would stay Wii exclusive.

Looks just like the first one to me. I think I'll pass on this one and hope that the waggle shooting in Killzone 3 is better.

This looks terrible, not to mention generic.

I can't believe people when they consider a game like this quality third party output. This is poop.
Who's saying that?

It doesn't look good visually. I attribute that to the art. It just doesn't look good. Modern Warfare Reflex looks a good deal better than this game, and Goldeneye 007 looks even better than that.

EDIT:

It's hard to care about this game at this point. The Conduit wasn't exactly a great game. It's singleplayer was bland and its multiplayer, while fun, was hacked to hell. Black Ops and Goldeneye 007 have all my attention on the Wii right now.

Literally no one has mentioned that this is great. Just that it looks better than the usual crap that it looks.

Looks great. Would be awesome if we are still last generation though, because it looks better than Halo 2.

Wow, it looks good.
Well, I guess good isn't great, but then you're the person who changed "quality" to "great".
