Conker’s Bad Fur Day review video (N64)

Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64Humorous action-platformer that does away with the tedious item collection found in most games in the genre. Instead, 2001’s Conker’s Bad Fur Day for the Nintendo 64 employs a combination of standard jump, run and explore mechanics and context-sensitive gags and actions. For instance, in the beginning of the game, by pressing the B button on the first pad he encounters, Conker drinks some Alka-Seltzer to wipe out his hangover, at which point players can proceed forward. 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.

The story of the game is the following: Conker’s very good night turns into a very bad day. He has to deal with a crazy and abusive world, all while suffering through a massive hangover. Conker encounters abusive paint pots; jabbering dung beetles; trigger-happy, scar-faced Tediz; and a belligerent giant, with only a frying pan as a means of self-defense. He is resourceful, however, and makes the best of his situation. The game combines elements of 3-D exploration, combat, and puzzle solving. It features cinematic cutscenes, movie parodies, facial expressions, dozens of unhinged characters, and 1- to 4-player deathmatch games in a variety of styles.

Nintendo has boldly gone where only cows and Bandini have gone before. This controversial M-Rated classic features a corn-loving pile of crap with an affinity for opera and revolutionary pee stream technology. Need I say more?

The most controversial N64 game of all time. Watch this Conker’s Bad Fur Day video review.
