I wanna talk about Bad Fur Day for a bit, as well as how I've been faring in Live & Reloaded.
Playing BFD in Rare Replay was an amazing experience. The gameplay was fun, and tge writing is actually pretty good. I'd go as far as to call it one of the finest games Rare has ever done. I loved every minute of it, but my gripe? Shooting controls are finicky at best, and it takes some getting used to, with having to use the left stick to aim and the right stick to move when other games don't do that. Still, I got used to it, and the game remained awesome.
Live & Reloaded, however? Twken on its own merits, it's also a fine game. But as a remake, it's both the inferior version and a bit too faithful to the original. It feels more like a second playthrough. The graphics are improved (looks good enough to qualify as an early 360 game, I agree), but the facial animations aren't as good. Also, why are there enemies sprinkled in places where they weren't originally there? It's not a problem most of the time, but in some areas...yeah, I think they were hard enough without those enemies.
Also, added censorship. Cnsidering MS was kinda advertising themselves as darker than Nintendo, you would have expected less censhorship, but the opposite happened, censoring words that the N64 (and later Rare Replay) version got away with. Plus, it ruins some scenes, especially the Great Mighty Poo song. Shame, hearing the uncensored version of the L&R rendition, I think I prefer it...
New story content was added, though I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll say what I think when I get to it.
On the plus side, shooting controls were improved. Wish that carried into the Rare Replay version, but oh well...
So my thoughts on Live & Reloaded? The inferior version...which is what everyone else thinks! Still, taken on its own merits, it's still a great game.
