A hacker who calls himself "hetoan2" has criticized The Conduit's sheer ease of manipulation, claiming that the game has almost no protection from unscrupulous cheaters who can alter variables to give themselves infinite ammo and health, or invisibility from enemy radars. This could easily enter the online realm as well, meaning that The Conduit could potentially be a nightmare for honest gamers.

"Everything is virtually unprotected," claims hetoan22. "All values can be edited fairly easily, and there's virtually no sign of an attempt at hiding values, fixing bugs, or preventing online hackers."

The hacker states that the code for online play is virtually identical, meaning that these values can be changed for multiplayer as well. It seems that this guy, despite his status as a hacker, wishes to use his skills for good and not evil. He released patch codes for wannabe cheaters, but the files contained date that corrupted the save files of anybody who used it. Brutal justice.

He now allegedly works with High Voltage to root out the cheaters, and anybody caught trying to be sly will have their MAC addresses banned by Nintendo. We've contacted High Voltage for comment on the matter and will let you know if we hear anything.
