Summary: Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge is an enjoyable game. Like most Banjo-Kazooie games, you have to go to world to world to find little puzzle pieces to enter another world and continue. The game is fun, challenging and carried some traits from Banjo-Tooie. Music is catchy, but graphics could have been better because the environments all look like paintings and sometimes the areas can be annoying on the platforming.
Summary: That's what I was thinking. I don't want to say it's a spinoff... But that's kinda what it is. Rare would've done a much better job if they've done this on the GameCube/XBox (I don't know who thay were working for at the time being) so it would've been like the N64 Classics.
Summary: I'll probably be shunned for saying this, but I've never played the original Banjo Kazooie game. I've heard great things about it, but I never got around to trying it out. So instead, I got this GBA sequel, and if this is any indication, I don't see what all the hype is about. The game is fun, I'll give it that, but unfortunately, it's just like every other platformer in that puts way too much time into collecting items.
Summary: As a platform games fan I must admit to being pleased to see a game released with the GBA in mind. Rare have produced a game which suits the GBA perfectly and creates a near 3D effect. It brings back many of the features from it's 64-bit prequel. It has most of the moves and even more items with an enhanced Mumbo layout. It is only the ability to fly that it lost.
