Ipredict they'll score it lower than Goldeneye Wii, as GE has that more serious, cinematic feel that IGN and most reviewers get off on, compared to Conduit 2's deliberately B-movie cheesiness, which I think they won't like.
I wish Bozon was still here. I always think it's a good Idea for the same person to review a game and it's sequel. For example, the Etrian Odyssey games. Those games are meant for the Hardcore RPG fans who like the fruits of grinding, constructing a party, and just overall feeling that extra goodness once you defeat that major tough boss( I felt amazing once I beat the Narmer in Etrian Odyssey 3).
Anyways, the first two Etrian Odysseys get a 7.4 then an 8. Then Etrian Odyssey 3 comes out( Many fans say it's the best in the series) which ends up scoring a 6. The main complaints was that is was too hard and there was little storytelling.
All in all, I hope they get a reviewer that knows what Conduit 2 is trying to go for( That brilliantly cheesy lovable experience, with hints of conspiracy surrounding it's great gameplay.)
It's already been rated lower than the first game by the Official Nintendo Magazine, and I have a nasty feeling IGN and other reviewers will follow suit, judging this game much more harshly than its prequel despite it being (apparently) a massive improvement.
7.5 is about right given the first games glitchy multi. We all will buy it, its life will depend on the strength of the multi.
I have to say I don't like the weapons set-up. It lends itself to abuse. I prefer people use the same weapons. I like that the SCAR is one of the first weapons, but all the same. The levels look great and I like all the new modes. I just don't think making this game closer to CoD is a good thing.
