"Rare has done it again, another awesome game!"
Conkers Bad Fur Day is about a squirrel named Conker(really?)that gets drunk, a little too drunk. He wanders off into a field and collapses. He awakens a field, with a hangover, and theres where the adventure begins...
Story - 10
Nothing really to say here, just about what I said above, its a simple story with a fun concept.
Graphics - 10
This is a very good looking N64 game. Rare has done an awesome job with the textures. Its kind of cartoony graphics. The blood, although gruesome is cartoony, it may not be realistic looking blood(comes out in big drops)but you can definitely recognize it when you see it. The characters have really nice facial expressions, their lips go in sync with the voices, all is good here.
Game Play - 10
This is where the game shines. No more collecting jiggys or bananas. Instead you basically go from place to place doing things for people and get money for it. The boss battles are fun, especially the Great Mighty Poo(hehe). There are a few movie spoofs as well including Saving Private Ryan, The Matrix, Eyes Wide Shut, Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, and more. You'll never get tired of this game, thats my opinion. The single-player game is fun. If you get bored, try out the multi player. 7 games to choose from, each have their own strategies and are very different. I could go on and on. Theres another 10 for the game play.
Sound - 10
Really good sound. This is great sound quality for a cartridge game. The voices sound great, Conker's voice really fits him, as with Berri's. In the war scenes the sound gets good, you hear all the bullets whizzing past you, the sound of it hitting you, the ambiance, etc.
Replay Value - 10
Great game, you'll probably want to go through the solo game again and again, its funny as hell. The multi player will keep the games life going also, I still have a ball playing it, with or without friends over.
Violence - Animals dieing, blood, gore, brains, you name it.
Sexual Themes - Mostly off-screen stuff, but you can hear it.
Profanity - Every word besides the F-word is heard, the F-word is bleeped, like in South Park.
Rent Or Buy?
Definitely buy it. But if you don't have that kind of cash, then rent it a few times, it doesn't take long to beat, about 15-20 hours. But if you have the cash, don't waste your time, GO GET IT!
