A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Conker ends up helping many people along the way; however, his motives are usually far from altruistic -- cash is often the driving motivator.
Violence & Scariness
Both the single and multi-player portions of the game contain a good deal of violence; the multi-player segment is exclusively a first-person-shooter with plenty of blood and guts.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
The king bee hires Conker to get a scantily clad "big-breasted" daisy to "open up" so he can "pollinate" her. Conker's girlfriend, along with other female dancers, is dressed provocatively. Numerous sexual innuendos. The size of male genitalia is an important part of one level.

Frequent use of profanity. The more vulgar language is usually bleeped out -- but is still possible to understand most of what the characters are saying.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, cute cartoon characters aside, this game is clearly not for kids. Crude humor abounds -- from fighting an enemy known as the Great Mighty Poo to frequent references to being hung-over and excessive alcohol consumption. There is graphic violence, especially in the multi-player first-person shooter mode, including blood splattering on the screen and close-ups of carcasses. This game is also online enabled.
Is It Any Good?
There are many reasons why this game is not a good one for kids. One reason becomes quickly apparent: The developers clearly have fetish with basic bodily functions, and derive most of the game's humor from it. Conker also has plenty of graphic violence. Some is in the single-player story mode, but present in full-force during the multiplayer FPS mode. Blood splatters on the screen during combat, close-ups of carcasses are shown and characters can be started on fire.
Moreover, alcohol is mentioned frequently and characters are shown getting drunk. Finally, vulgar language has a constant presence in the single-player story. All in all, it is not surprising that this game is not recommended for children. Even the packaging itself carries an extra warning that the game is not intended for anyone under 17.
