So, Quick Look? Also, horde mode?

From IGN review:

"features "Invasion" mode, which is your now-standard "fight waves of enemies" mode."

This sounds a lot like Horde Mode to me, which, if so, awesome.  Also, review was pretty favorable over the previous Conduit, which is nice, since I didn't mind the first one.  Given that this one has classic controller support, I could see this being a pretty decent first person experience.

Seems to have been buried so far by other games. I'm sure they will get round to it.

Would be interested to see if it has improved much over the original, considering how much they hyped the first one.

I'd like to see a quicklook for it. I wanna see if it's worth dusting off the Wii for, haven't touched mine since Donkey Kong.

Come on, with all the good games that came out this week, THIS is the game you want coverage of? If the quality (or lack thereof) of the first game is anything to go by, I would avoid this piece of trash at all costs.

I think the biggest problem for most people with the original Conduit were the controls.  The sequel having classic controller support could go a long way to making it a good exclusive title on the Wii.  Yeah, it was definitely a big week for releases, but the other Big 3 seem to have already been covered in one way or another, and next week seems like another snoozer, so yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing 20 minutes of Conduit 2 being played.

Also, I was under the impression at some point that this game was going to be multiplatform. Did I just dream that?

Even barring the controls though, when they did the QL of the original it looked pretty awful. Like a bad Gamecube FPS.

Some people really liked the first one, and it sold decently enough in Sega's mind to warrant a sequel.  Naturally, there are those that would have interest in seeing the game get covered by the Giant Bomb staff.

For what it's worth, I would love a Quick Look of this game. The first game was disappointing, but this one seems like it may have resolved the issues.

Seems a QL of this would be good, as it appears from other reviews that they did improve things some & added more variety though I find it hard from the videos to separate the main character of this from Duke Nukem (same voice actor).
