    I'm looking at 2 future shooters for the Wii, CoD5 and a game called the Conduit. Supposedly the Treyarch guys will fit the CoD4 engine onto the Wii, but The Conduit also looks real good and has mappable controls. Any suggestions.

    I have no idea what Conduit is, but I wouldn't put too much faith into Call of duty 5. Call of Duty 3 on the Wii was terrible.

    The Conduit is exclusive, so it will most likely turn out better. Also, it's Sci Fi, has voice chat nearly confirmed, and has been said to have the best and most customizable controls of any console FPS in existence.

    World at War should be pretty good, too. It's built from the ground up, but I would have your hopes higher for The Conduit.

    I agree. If you're basing your options on other people's opinion, I suppose you read reviews... So wait and see what the reviews say, that's my advice.

    Definetely keep both games on your watch, then make your decision after seeing other people's impressions.

    I'm positive that both games will be good, but it'll all come down to what really is in the final package, and if it is any good.

    Cod World at War I guarantee will not be that great on the Wii...do yourself a favor and if you have the other consoles just get it on that....the conduit, every little bit of this game looks like your typical shooter that is in no way amazing, but may be at least tolerated..like Area 51 for the xbox, or Blacksite for the ps3/360..I hated the game but I guess it was at least tolerable..this game seems like that kind of thing.

    Indeed, even the sub par COD3 got decent reviews on the Wii only thanks to the great controls it had. I don't see why they'd fuck it up in a sequel.

    It looks like the Conduit will be awesome but if I were you I would wait for some reviews before making this decision.
