"Once you get over the initial shock, you realize how stupid this game really is"
When I first put this game in the N64 and started playing it, I thought, ''Thank God, finally a Nintendo game that tells it like it is.'' I mean, I was getting sick and tired of the plethera of little-kiddy games being released, and Conker seemed like a breath of fresh air. But after playing it for an hour or so, I realized how horribly, horribly wrong I was. So, before you all pelt me with bricks and call me a prude, lemme explain why this game deserves a ''3,'' and nothing more.
Graphics, along with sound, is the game's strong point. The graphics are above average (though unspectacular), and the atmosphere is fitting. The comically drawn characters interact well with each other and with the environment. The only problem I have with the graphics is that in multiplayer mode, you can only see about 5 feet in front of you, which leaves you prone to falling into mysterious holes in the ground.
Sound for this game is kind of a mixed bag. On one hand, the voice acting was good, and definately added to the game in a positive way. On the other hand, the music is repetitive and annoying, which detracts from the game. The overall sound is above average, but if the music was less repetitive, the game would've been better.
The innovative ideas of Rare are overshadowed by poor execution. The game is unbelievably easy, and was obviously put together hastily. While some of the plots are entertaining, the majority of them are poorly thought out. The game as a whole makes little sense, and the plot doesn't just have holes--it has chasms.
Replay Value (1/10)
Conker's Bad Fur Day is probably THE LEAST desirable game to play again, possibly in the history of video gaming. Since this game relies on shock value, once the initial shock wears off, the player realizes that the game is crap. Once you play this through once, you'll never want to see it again.
Overall, this game was hugely dissapointing. As I said, a few more months in development would've made all the difference. A good game to rent, but I wouldn't buy it if the world depended on it. So you see, this game is really really really not worth it.
