Personally I consider a score no less than 9.5, but I pleased with IGN 8.6 score.
Becose for me The Conduit is far better than Halo3 and HaloDST. Just for better customisable controls and graphics as close any xbox360 standart game and an outstanding online multiplayer mode.
I can't stop laughing at this statement.I know your entitled to your opinion but this not true.... This game is worth a 8 at best and a 7 if you compare it to PS3 and 360 good FPS.
But I totally agree with this statement:
I really enjoyed it. The music, menus, and storyline were cool. In some ways it reminds me of Perfect Dark(spy stuff) and Deus Ex(Conspiracies, setting, some of the tech), Half Life(some of the art), and Halo (only 2 weapons, monster voices, and definitely one of the creatures).....
.....I'd give the game an 8 and it was killer rental. Definitely no Halo though. But it is better than I expected. Especially the storyline and music!
