At the risk of sounding cliche, the graphic look of the title can best be described with one word -- wow! One could play through the entire game in one 10-15 hour sitting and never get bored or, for that matter, even blink. A sequel to the little-known Conker's Pocket Tales, a kid-friendly Game Boy platformer, this game was likewise intended to be a children's game; first under the name Conker's Quest, and later Twelve Tales: Conker … Different modes include Beach, Raptor, Race, War, Heist and Tank -- each one relatively unique. And on the other end, zombies growl and moan in a creepy manner that'll give players goose bumps. Each spoof and comical quest is blended into the next seamlessly so that it all makes sense in the end. While all of the action takes place in third-person view, it's much more nicely polished than it was in, say, Jet Force Gemini, which ironically was a third-person action-shooter to boot. The star of this game is a fuzzy tailed squirrel named CONKER. Players won't believe just how stylish and beautiful BFD looks. Besides, when one grows tired of the single-player experience, they can jump to the impressively fast and furious multiplayer one. The Tediz are basically Nazis, who must try to shoot down the Frenchies before they can escape to Paris. He may be a cute little guy to look at, but if you get too close and try to pet him he'll rip your arm off and whack you silly with it. Later on these pads are used to activate a slingshot and throwing knives; to turn Conker into an anvil and drop downward; to shoot automatic, double-handed guns; to activate a The Matrix-inspired slow-motion effect and flip through the air shooting enemies; and much, much more. When that's taken care of, slowly reach over, and push the Power button (that's the one on the left) on your Nintendo 64 into the "on" position.

Conker's Bad Fur Day is a brilliant game all around -- one of my favorites of all time. Our particular favorite, Beach, sees players as either the Tediz or the Frenchies. Adding to the entertainment value is a well-written, cleverly lewd script with themes directly spoofing popular movies and a cast of characters so lovingly outrageous and at times disgustingly over-the-top that one can't help but laugh at them. CONKER'S BAD FUR DAY takes parody-based, gross-out humor to nasty new extremes. Lush, detailed 3D worlds, cute character designs, fantastic texture work and top lighting effects collide to create the atmospheric environments the squirrel travels. If this is a sign of Rare games to come, sign me up. Sound Presented in full Dolby Surround Sound, Conker's Bad Fur Day delivers perhaps the best audio experience Nintendo 64 has to offer. Verdict. And speaking of which... Multiplayer Mode The multiplayer modes Rare has created for BFD are some of its very best -- and again variety is the key. The Bunker level is a Deathmatch exclusive. Tediz have access to a rocket launcher, a giant automatic gun and a sniper rifle. The inclusion of Context Sensitive buttons, which add all sorts of new abilities to Conker's arsenal, keep the action fresh, and the omission of tedious item collection scenarios comes as a long overdue sigh of relief. They also come as a welcomed change to the same-old "me too" platformer mechanics, all of which seem to stem from the basic control scheme created for Super Mario 64. In fact, we'd rather spend 15 unbelievably satisfying hours with Conker than 50 with most other titles -- it's just that much fun. Conker himself is equipped with an in-game facial animation system that realistically portrays his different moods as he travels the lands. It's simply amazing that it's all coming off the cartridge format. Yes. Rare has really outdone itself to bring Nintendo 64 owners a devilishly funny 3D platformer with an intelligent edge; a title with action elements in addition to the standard run and jump mechanics that have saturated the genre for years. Whether it be finding a way to get cows to consume prune juice, avoiding enemy gunfire from the evil Tediz, making sure that a baby dinosaur follows you to his doom or choosing the correct route through an underwater tunnel system, players will have to use their heads.
