|Conker's Bad Fur Day Review by: legacyme3
Bad Fur Days can be good too.
Here's another Leggy Review, and I review Conker's Bad Fur Day for the N64
I think the graphics were pretty amazing for an N64 game, it sure came a long way from Super Mario 64 where everything looked so blocky.
I think this was one of the better parts of the game. All the sound fit each area, and the music you heard wasn't that bad for the system.
I still play this from time to time on my N64 at home. The game is fun, and even if you beat it, you have reason to play again and again, because the game is a nice stress release game.
Call me pessimistic. At the start I liked the story, Conker is drunk, trying to go home... but then the basic outline gets a tad cliche (although still staying hilarious and individual). Basically you have to "find Berry" and embark on "an epic quest" to get her back.
Not a lot of side quests, but multiplayer is fun if you are playing it on the system. (RGR isn't able to do netplay, which is why I rate it lower) The game is a little consuming, and will eat hours of your time.
So far the hardest game I have reviewed. Conker's Bad Fur Day had moments where I was actually getting stuck.
It's a great game, one you must own. Renting is NOT an option, once you beat it, play it again and again. Truly one of the lasting classics on the Nintendo 64.

Conker's Bad Fur Day Box Description: The day after his 21st birthday bash, Conker's sporting the worst hangover ever, and he just can't seem to find his way home. Prepare to stagger through randy, raunchy, raucous scenarios crammed full of bad manners, twisted humor, and graphic bodily functions. Unless you're a fan of violence, foul language, and racy innuendo, you'd best steer clear of this one.
Conker's Bad Fur Day Description: Conker the Squirrel has had a really bad day. Too much partying, too much booze - and the result is predictable: a terrible hangover. What is less predictable, however, is the fact that Conker has no idea where he is. All he wants is to go home to his girlfriend Berri, but it seems that an unknown force has thrown him into another world. The ruler of said world, the dumb, but vicious Panther King, is having a serious problem: he has been just drinking milk when he discovered that the table in his throne room is missing one of its legs. Unable to solve the problem by himself, the enraged monarch sends for the mad weasel scientist, Professor Von Kriplespac, who suggests a red squirrel as a replacement for the table's lost leg. The Panther King sends his minions after Conker, who has to explore the bizarre world, deal with its eccentric characters, stay alive, and find a way to return home.
Conker's Bad Fur Day is a grotesque counterpart to Rare's own cheerful, child-oriented 3D action platformers (such as for example Banjo-Kazooie). Intense swearing, violence, and instances of "toilet humor" co-exist with cute animals and a brightly colorful fantasy world. The game also contains segments that parody famous movies, such as The Matrix, Terminator, and others.
The core of the gameplay is 3D platform action. Conker can jump, climb, swim, and attack enemies with various weapons (the default one being a frying pan). Conker can also collect money, which is sometimes needed to advance to a new area. The game world is reasonably open, containing an overworld from which the player can access large levels that take a while to explore. Talking to characters and performing tasks offered by them is one of the main devices used to advance the plot and unlock a different area.
A multiplayer mode is also included, allowing 4 players to battle it out in many different styles of multiplayer gameplay, including a deathmatch, a race, a "capture the flag"-like mini-game, etc.
