by SonicRobot3000 Not Worth The Money and Not Like The Originals!
If your a fan of the original Banjo Kazooie games, don't make the choice of buying this video game! I bought this game for my dad and I, plus we loved the original Banjo Kazooie games. The thought of having to beat Grunty again, but this time with inventions. Man, that would be EPIC! But once we played the first 2 acts of the first world, we were TOTALLY BORED! We turned the game back in the day after the day we bought it. My dad and I were really dissapointed. Nothing to do but just build inventions and walk through worlds, challenging people some I don't even know! Grunty, I gotta say, she was HORRIBLE. What happened to her body? L.O.G. could have given her, her old look and body back! L.O.G. is the main reason why this game is TERRIBLE! If he was never in this game, maybe i would have kept the game and rated it a 8-10. I'll stick back to the originals and specifically say that this game, is " NOT WORTH THE MONEY!". For some of you people out there who are big fans of this game, i disagree with ALL of you. If anyone is reading this, wants to buy this game, and is a fan of the original Banjo Kazooie games, NEVER BUY THIS GAME! IT IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY AND IT IS NOT LIKE THE ORIGINALS!

by ninjaofthenite what happened Rare?
Yesterday I got this game thinking it would be fun because it was a new Banjo game and because I'm a fan of Banjo-Kazooie on the Nintendo 64. So I got home turned it on and started to play it at first I thought it would be fun, then it started to get boring because every single mission required a vehicle unlike Banjo-Kazooie where the missions were on foot. Another that got annoying was the cart in the beginning it was very slow. Every single level had the same characters. Remember how Bottles died in Banjo-Tooie when he went outside to see what was going on, Bottles someone came back to life in Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts. If you are a fan of original Banjo games on the N64 this is not the game for you.
Rated 1 out of 10 by alchemymaster123 ummm....ok?
I saw this coming out after at least 10 or so years. Needless to say I was so excited! Then I found out that they forgot all of their moves and they then had to ride around in vehicles. Ok... not exactly what I had in mind for a Banjo-Kazooie game. Then it finally came out. I went into EB to get it and I took it home and popped that little sucker into my Xbox 360. I have two words. COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT! Not only did they forget all their new moves, the building system stinks, the storyline is terrible, there are hardly any enemies that you can kill, the online just completely sucks, and, the worst one, YOU CAN'T READ THE STINKING SUBTITLES! What! I am now out of money and I have a useless, time-wasting game! Leave it up to Microsoft to make a crappy product, of course. I wish that Rare didn't leave Nintendo. The only thing that made pre-ordering this game worth it, was the free download of Banjo-Kazooie 1. The best Banjo game. My recommendation, DON'T BUY THIS GAME! Get something else instead. Definitely.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Supa Mario A cheap gimmick that apparently only true BK fans see.
Don't blindly think this game is just Banjo-Kazooie except "different". I can understand the Banjo-Kazooie game designers trying something different. But completely changing a game's genre and art style-and to a lego like style..-isn't just trying something new, it's changing the whole series completely and abandoning their old fans in favor of today's kids. I can understand this, and I don't blame RARE a bit for appealing to a new generation and maybe even losing some of their old fans, but to pointlessly change the BK franchise that they used to make so well just to possibly attract new gamers, is somewhat of a disgrace to the BK series. It looks like a great game, but a HORRIBLE Banjo-Kazooie game in my opinion. With that said, I plan on buying an xbox 360 just for this game (and maybe some halo 3 and viva pinata). I've got to say, the game looks great-though not nearly canon-ad though it barely has half my approval as a BK fan, it's got 110% of my interest.
Rated 8 out of 10 by SlimSchott Not as good as the first two
I loved the Banjo Kazooie series, it was an amazing game I played when I was a kid that I played over and over again, I could never get my hands off the controller. When this one came out, I had mixed feelings about it, good because it was a return of one of my favorite characters on a common console but with a different company, bad because it introduced vehicles in the game even though it was good enough without them and I also couldn't play on Spiral Mountain as much as I wanted to. The switch from Nintendo to Microsoft was a little dis-heartening for me because seeing the one huge change(vehicles) means there could be others. It was a big jump from Banjo Tooie to Nuts n' Bolts and I think it was to big to where I couldn't get a good grasp on the game. After finishing this game, I was wishing a nuclear bomb hit their world so they would have to start at where they did in Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie so I could play on the Spiral Mountain I was used to.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Thexav What I think
This game is overall great but some people don't like it and I think it's because they don't like change. I agree that a "regular" banjo game would of probably been better, but it's still good. I recommend this game to people who likes banjo and is willing to understand that this game is still banjo. Just think of it as a new start and you will love it for sure. Graphics are great, the gameplay is amusing and what to say about the text, it's hilarious just like the originals. The ground/air/water car building is limitless, you can do whatever you like, it really works on how you can bring your imagination far. For sure this game is not perfect, but what really makes it great is the originality, nowadays, we only see old stuff, I think this game really brings something new to the gaming era.Personally I really like it. Challenge: 9/10 Controls: 9/10 Graphics: 9/10 Interface: 10/10 Length: 8/10 Sound: 10/10 Storyline: 9/10 OVERALL: 9/10
Rated 9 out of 10 by marcuspheonix444 great game, great user created content!
first off , this game is freaking amazing! the user created content, the graphics, and the humor. rare really outdid itself. after grabbed by the goulies i think most of us thought they were finished, but BAM! this game comes out. the best thing about this game is the vehicle creation. its easy to use and the wide variety of parts keeps you building. sadly the only way to have these parts is to go around collecting them which can get old pretty fast, but once you have the good parts the fun really starts. another great thing is that you can make just about any vehicle from helicopters to submarines to planes to cars ( and anything else you can think of) the next best thing is the graphics. the cartoony world and wonderful backgrounds really stand out. the final thing i will talk about is the humor. even though the subtitles are tiny and hard to read, once you read them they will make you laugh out loud. no other game from rare really stands out as much as this one. i hope that you will play it cuz its worth the buy!
Rated 5 out of 10 by Cheesy mike Not as great as the classic banjos
This game had some ups and downs but overall it was a pretty decent game. I would prefer the classic banjo game on Xbox live arcade rather than this game. The game is mainly compromised of vehicles. I prefer original platforming. If you are into building vehicles and using them for common mischief I would recommend this game to you. If you are into the original banjo games like me, do not buy this game. For me personally, this game was a disappointment because i prefer the original banjo games. The worlds are okay, but not great. It is sometimes hard to control your vehicles sometimes in the game. It mainly depends what kind of games you are into. This game was not as challenging as I thought it would be. If rare makes another banjo game, I think it should be based off of platforming, not vehicles. If you like using vehicles in a game, i recommend this game for u. But if u like the original platforming like the old games, DO NOT GET THIS GAME.
