Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64 review)

Developer: Rare
Publisher: Rare
Released: 2001

Conker's Bad Fur Day is a 3D action-platformer and the final Rare developed game for the Nintendo 64.

+ Lots of scenic / gameplay variety, and the graphics are outstanding with detailed textures and a great draw distance.

+ Follows a more linear format than previous 3D Rare platformers which keeps the story moving along briskly.

+ Humour is South Park-esque and will have you laughing out loud at its inappropriate jokes that often break the fourth wall.

+ Includes an impressive amount of audio and cut-scenes, and the ending is surprisingly emotional.

- Arduous tasks feel like busy work rather than something that the developers intended to stimulate and entertain players.

- Despite its linear nature, the game doesn't offer enough hints regarding where to visit to trigger the next plot point.

- Camera is atrocious and always seems to work against you by refusing to give the best view of your surroundings.
