A very good game as you play as a former secret service agent named Michael Ford. He is a good role model because he is trying to stop a tyrant named john adams (I have no idea why he is named afrter our 2nd president.) Although Mr. ford is trying to save thousands of lives he kills many innecoent people (while killing aliens he also kills people who are manipulated to fight him.) Violence is one of the major issues in the game. Sex is not bad in the game the only problem is that andromeda has some cleavage. Swear words used are s**t D**n basterd ass and b***h.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

The B-movie of Video Games.

The graphics are very good, multiplayer is spectacular, they fixed the blood splatter from the the first game (not by much, but it is a bit better) but it is VERY corny. Horrible voice acting can make you want to turn the Wii remote to your head and pull the B button. It is rather violent, and much fake looking blood spurts out of people and aliens, and if you get a head shot on a "Drone," a jet of orange, gooey gore spills out the neck. "S--t," "basterd," and some other mild language can be heard at times, but it's nothing teens playing haven't heard/can't handle. They may have improved on somethings, but did not completely succeed on perfecting a Wii shooter.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (8):

Conduit 2 is hardly perfect, but it's much better than most shooters on the Wii. The action is fairly well paced and the boss battles are fun. More importantly, though, the game never takes itself too seriously, injecting humor into the action -- such as an enemy who shouts, after you've been shooting him for quite a while, "That's it! I'm through negotiating!" The story, though, is pretty thin and some moments will have you wondering what the heck is going on. The multiplayer mode is a welcome addition, given the natural fit between online play and shooters. For parents, this is an example of the Wii's limited online capabilities working in their favor, as they can easily monitor with whom their children are playing.

Online interaction: Up to 16 people can play together, but since there is no voice chat, you do not have to worry about children being exposed to lewd or offensive language.
