The Conduit HD Review: Wii FPS Becomes Tegra Benchmark Game (Video)
The Conduit was a reasonably appealing title on the Nintendo Wii from a few years ago, that got ported to the Android world, starting with the Tegra devices. This serves as sort of a benchmark title and we decided to test it on a Tegra 4 device, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T, a 10 inch tablet shown in the video below.
This FPS is pretty fluid and its levels are impressively large, considering the type of title we’re dealing with. You get to play 2 levels for free and pay $5 for the rest of 7 levels. Controls are intuitive and by default auto fire and auto reload will be activated, but you can set them to manual, if you want.
The game offers controller support and has an impressive addition to the voice cast: Kevin Sorbo, from Hercules. Sadly, the AI is quite stupid and easy to defeat, but at least the weapon look cool, especially the alien one. I like the vibe that the game sends, with a certain creepiness a la Resistance Fall of Man floating in the air.
Aside from shooting, you can solve some sorts of puzzles, using an ASE, a robotic companion that analyzes surroundings. Graphics look a bit dated, but still pretty polished for a tablet game. We give this title an 8.7 out of 10 and you can download it here.
