    Default So I picked up Conker's Live and Reloaded...

    First let me say this is easily the best looking Xbox game, and I'm going to go ahead and say that it's even close to the beauty of that on the Xbox 360. I could not imagine a more picture perfect lookin game. The fuzz on Conker and other characters however is a little odd, but does give a realistic quality.

    I suppose the point of this topic though is the multiplayer, man does it suck. I tried cracking into it and it's so darn complicated. Not only that, but I found very few games to play, and the weapon system was very uneven. I enjoy sniping in games, but I couldn't hit anyone for the life of me. The rocket seems cheap too. It really disappoints me they didn't just transfer over the old multiplayer games and slap it online.

    Ahh well, the single player campaign is still fantastic, and the early crack on the game about it being a port were pretty laugh out loud quality. I guess I would recommend it to all of those who haven't played the N64 version before, and of course to those who loved the N64 version, just be prepared for a sub-par online experience.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    I was disappointed in this release, because I am about 50% of the way through the 64 version, and don't really feel like re-hashing through it on the Xbox. I was expecting a different game reminiscent of the 64 version, not the same exact game.

    I agree about the multiplayer. I tried doing some split screen with friends, and they hated it.

    I bought this awhile back and played it a few times. Single player was alright -- similar to Banjo Kazooie etc. -- but the multiplayer was balls. For all the time Rare sunk into remaking it, they could have just made a sequel.

    I will agree that the graphics are quite amazing. Running in 480p, the game looked very slick.

    Well they edited the game a bunch from the N64 version (a raunchy song) and some of the level layouts have changed. I've been playing a bunch of the 'XBL' version of this, even though i've only been playing the 'DumDums' (the AI bots) its fun, all be it frustrating at times because of the level requirements and the time limits in the Chapter X version.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Single player is decent, online is crap. It's hard to get a game going, the games are way to complicated, and the weapons are crappy. The class system makes no sense either. I gave up and went back to Halo 2 aftrr a few games.

    That being said, the graphics are incredible.
