It's not too in-depth, but.... well, here are some quotes, for those too lazy to read.

.....certainly, this is a more accomplished release than its predecessor.....
....It's a more substantial campaign than you'll find in recent shooters such as Homefront, with additional missions and secrets adding replay value and a certain self-awareness that was lacking from the rather humourless original......
.....Although some of Ford's enemies suggest that if there is life out there, it's not necessarily intelligent, most demonstrate more of a survival instinct than their suicidal counterparts from the original game......
.....It's a convincing reminder of how well-suited the Wii's unique controllers are for the shooter genre.....
.....High Voltage certainly hasn't skimped on the content offering split-screen as well as online play across all game types though at times it does feel as if quantity was a greater concern than quality.....
....the fast-paced action is rarely less than entertaining, making Conduit 2 a solid addition to the relatively slim line-up of shooters on Nintendo's console......


So, decent review. They seem pretty happy with the game, though they don't give a score.

Nice!
A much more informative and reasoned review than the quite vague NP one.

Two reviewers already have complaints about the AI, if that is the only problem with the game, then Im all good

So far no real look at the online which is what I'm mostly interested in. You'd think they would setup something to give the reviewers a go at it.
