The Nintendo Channel Data:
The data presented here was captured 34 days after both games released, so it's basically comparing apples to apples, when talking about the data reported on the Nintendo Channel for both games.
"Total" Game-Play Hours Reported:
The Conduit had 263,608 "Total" hours of reported game-play 34 days after it released.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] had only 138,726 "Total" hours of reported game-play 34 days after it released.
In the first 34 days, The Conduit beat Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] by 124,882 "Total" reported game-play hours.
Number of Players Reporting Data:
The Conduit had 16,743 players reporting game-play data on the Nintendo Channel, 34 days after it's release.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] had 6,184 players reporting game-play data on the Nintendo Channel, 34 days after it's release.
The Conduit had 10,559 more players reporting game-play data 34 days after it's release, than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] did 34 days after it released.
Average Total Hours Per Person:
This piece of data I find extremely interesting.
The Conduit averaged 15 Hours 46 Minutes of play-time, "Per person", 34 days after it released on June 23.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] averaged 22 Hours 27 Minutes of play-time, "Per person", 34 days after it released on November 10.
As of the data on the Nintendo Channel on December 14, 2009, The Conduit has averaged 22 Hours 16 Minutes of play-time "Per person", since it released back in June.
In just 34 days since it released, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] has passed The Conduit's average play-time, "Per person".
The review score average is not based off of data 34 days after both games released.
The Conduit has a MetaCritic.com review score average of 69% out of 100%, based off of 79 "critic" reviews.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] has a MetaCritic.com review score average of 77% out of 100%, based off of 35 "critic" reviews.
Kotaku.com's, Stephen Totilo has tracked and shown "The 10 Most Avidly-Played Wii Games", according to the average hours "Per person", for several months now. Call of Duty: World at War currently sits in 4th place overall, with an average of 50 Hours 48 Minutes "Per person".
Being that Call of Duty: World at War was released in November 2008, and with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex] already at 22 Hours 27 Minutes average play-time "Per person", I wonder if it will join Stephen Totilo's "Top 10" most played games chart on the Wii within the next year?
I've only played The Conduit, and I enjoyed the single-player campaign, and I enjoyed the multi-player, when it functioned properly.
If you have played both The Conduit and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex], I would love to know which game you think is better, and your reasons why you favor one game over the other.
I have played both The Conduit and Call of Duty Modern Warfare Reflex Edition. I think gameplay and online wise COD:MWR is better. The main reason why I believe that is because CoD's online system is much better than the Conduits. Granted Condiut may be prettier but the better experience is CoD at least in my book.ReplyDelete
@Anon: Thanks for the comment! I have COD:MWR on my "wish list". I bought COD:WaW last year after Christmas, and it's still my most played Wii game to date, mainly because of it's online play.ReplyDelete
Nintendo needs to start making more RPG games, I went to amazon and a majority of the games were "party" games.ReplyDelete
Or a Castlevania type game. I can see the controls being used for a whip somehow.
@Nicodemus at Nite:ReplyDelete
They do have a lot of "party" games.
Though not all the "party" games are bad.
There is one Castlevania game on the Wii, but not whip in the game that I know of.
One of the Indiana Jones games on the Wii used "motion" for whip controls, and I remember reading one users "review" that said it was very detailed and functioned extremely well.
I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't put out a Pilot Wings game with it's own controller for that.ReplyDelete
@Nicodemus at Nite: The closest game on the Wii to Pilot Wings, is Wii Sports Resort.ReplyDelete
There are two Nintendo franchises I would love to see sequels for on the Wii, Star Fox and Wave Race.
@coffeewithgames: Yes, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a Star Fox game. I enjoyed the SNES version and absolutely went GA-GA over the N64 version.ReplyDelete
