Conker: Live & Reloaded is a remake of Conker's Bad Fur Day for the Xbox. Although it featured many improvements over the original (particularly in regard to the graphics), it's often regarded as the inferior version due to its censorship and removal of the original multiplayer modes. It is also the first title in the series to be released in Japan.

Soak Test

While in the main menu, press the Left Trigger, Right Trigger, White and Black buttons at the same time and the game will enter a soak test. In this soak test, the game will load every map from the main game, one after another. The game will then play all the chapters in order. Once the soak test is complete, the game will reboot. Pressing Back during the test will toggle some debug info at the top left of the screen.
