The bright-eyed, bushy-tailed hero from Conker's Bad Fur Day makes his Xbox debut in a multiplayer game featuring environments and themes taken from developer Rare's acclaimed Nintendo 64 title. As a special bonus, the entire Conker's Bad Fur Day single-player game has been included along with enhanced graphics and new uncensored material previously left on the cutting room floor. The single-player game is a risqué, adult-oriented take on the Wizard of Oz, where Conker stumbles upon a colorful cast of characters while trying to find his way back home.
Of course, the reason he's lost in the first place was due to a drinking binge, so this is not your ordinary cartoon squirrel. Players must figure out a way through this strange world of talking inanimate objects and cussing critters to get some needed rest. One of the title's salient features, other than its distinct sense of humor, is its avoidance of having players collect numerous trinkets popularized by other 3D platform games. Instead, players must solve puzzles and complete objectives using items found within specific levels, such as frying pans or pitchforks. Players will also witness a number of film parodies along the way, including Terminator, Aliens, The Matrix, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Saving Private Ryan, and more.
The heart of the title is its multiplayer aspects, and a variety of scenarios are available, each offering completely different environments, goals, and storylines to set it apart from the rest. Players will work in teams, where they must rely on one another to carry out specific objectives while the rival team tries to stop them. Up to 16 players can compete on Xbox Live, with scenarios ranging from the Heist, a four-on-four game of robbing banks, to Alien Base, where players fend off a marauding mob of malicious aliens looking to overrun a desolate outpost in space. Numerous options exist to help customize each scenario, from weapon types to the amount of health and lives available for each team. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
