Conker Live Reloaded

This game tripped me out. Imagine a game that rocked your socks back in the day on an older system and then find it all updated with modern technology and absolutely sensual graphics! This is what is presented to gamers with this release and the bold move to remake Conkerís Bad Fur Day, previously seen on the Nintendo 64. 

At the time, it was about a creature who should have been  a cutesy type character, put him into a world where there is gratuitous violence and in jokes and then let him rip with a life of his own. The jokes were current for their time but now they are a bit dated, but that is not to say that the game in its own right ainít the real deal because it sure as hell is. 

There is not much involving any sort of storyline, however there is a great mix of genres for those with well rounded tastes. Youíll begin the game in classic platforming mode with eventual combat modes being introduced to the title. The pacing feels a bit odd as there is a real sense of placement involved in the title so you never get the enjoyment of really mixing it up from the get go. 

Graphically this game is a absolute dream and so is the audio with developer Rare really taking the time to bring this game up to speed in the modern era of gaming. This is the game that people would have been waiting for to see why the Big Green Giant paid so much to take them off Nintendo! This game is just so much fun to play and it is worth playing all the way through for nostalgiaís sake. New gamers are going to love it as well though, although theyíll be shaking their heads at some of the corny jokes that are up for grabs. 

The online version of this game is tons of fun also with a very comprehensive deathmatch. The game supports up to 16 players on Xbox Live and the action is fast and furious. This mode is genuine fun unlike a lot of the games that are on the Live network. Most of the time I must confess that I purely review a game on itís single player merits however this title is truly fun and well worth getting the Live subscription in order to take part in some of the shenanigans that you can get up to.

There is a slight learning curve to the controls and I would say that about 30 minutes will have you ok with them. Take advantage of the bots that you can practice with before bringing your l33t skills to Live!  

Iíd have to say that Conker is well worth the play and salute Microsoft for taking this step with Rare in bringing back an old game and making it look sweet. Now if only someone would take the time out to port all the Quake games over to Xbox, Iíd be really stoked. 

High Recommendation, you wonít regret it!
