Conker's Bad Fur Day used to be called Twelve Tails:Conker 64.It was supposed to be a kids game with excellent graphics.Somewhere along the line,RARE got sick of it and started to make a new game with the characters.They came up with BFD,an M rated game filled to the brim with sex,viloence,and swearing.Nintendo somehow let them release it and now we have one of the last good N64 games. First of all,the graphics are extraordinary.They're better then Donkey Kong 64,and that even had the expansion pack.The world is colourful in one scene,dark in the other.It just looks amazing.Next,the sound is very good too.The music is good,and there's even a musical number in here that would never make it into a Mario game.The voices are excellent,mostly done by British actors.The multiplayer mode is very well done,offering plenty of variety in the games.
While the controls are good,the camera can get behind quite a lot.There's a lot of jumps and the camera doesn't make them easier to do.The main problem I had with the game was its overall feel.It's obvious that this game is uneven mainly because it's just scenes slapped together that used to make a different game.The game seems very short and when you're done,you don't want to play the one player game anymore.I'm surprised RARE would release a game that seems this rushed.
The Bottom Line
Even with its problems,this is a very fun game.While a lot of the jokes fall flat on their face,there is some pretty funny scenes in this game.It should be played,yet I think RARE wasn't really putting much effort into this game.
