Description

Conker: Live & Reloaded is a combination of frantic online multiplayer action and a single-player mode, which is a remake of the original Conker's Bad Fur Day for Nintendo 64 with more detailed and technologically advanced graphics, as well as re-recorded music.

The single-player game plays very similarly to the original version, but a few gameplay-related changes have been made. Conker now uses a baseball bat instead of the frying pan (his default weapon in the original). A few particularly challenging sequences have been made slightly easier; for example, a crosshair has been added for the slingshot weapon. The remake also censors more swear words with "beeps" than the original release.

The multiplayer game supports up to 16 combatants. This team based game is about the war between two factions: Squirrels and Tediz. Each team has multiple classes as Grunt, Sneaker or Skyjockey, and if the team wishes to reign supreme, they must use the teams effectively as every class has it's own special skills. The game is comprised of two different campaigns: The Future War, and The Old War. Both of these include multiple levels which are played in order to tell a story, and ultimately, defining the winner of the campaign. There are also many vehicles, weapons and items to use which help to win the war.
