A classic N64 platform game from the golden era of Rare and a must own for the N64 or XBLA.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to infusing fun and originally into their creations Rare back when they were on top form in the N64 era were the masters of their craft. Even when the game in question can be said to be a imitation of another well known title, in this case the superb all time classic platformer Super Mario 64, but this is certainly no carbon copy but a fun and innovative game in it's own right.

  • Excerpt: This is simply (in my opinion) the best platform game of all time. The designers, 'Rare' have made other hits, like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Donkey Kong. To non-gamers, it may be unknown, but it shouldn't be. It all starts off when the evil witch, Gruntilda kidnaps Banjo's (the bear) little sister. From then on, you face a daunting task of a getting her back.

  • Excerpt: I spent hour upon hour upon hour playing this game. I absolutely loved it. The story line is fantastic as you travel through each level completing various tasks in order to save ******* (I won't spoil it for you :) ) The levels are superbly imaginative and the creatures and characters you encounter are funny, interesting and exciting. On each level you have to collect musical notes, funny little animal things and puzzle pieces.
  • Pros: Fantastic story line and levels
  • Cons: Camera is a bit juddery and annoying at times

  • Excerpt: This is a great nintendo game for all the family - in fact it was one of my favorite ones and I always used to borrow it from video game stores or from friends who have owned it and I was so upset that i actually never owned it! But it was such a good game to play! The story is about a bear named Banjo and his bird friend Kazooie, and his little sister Tootie are about to go on an adventure together, while Tootie is talking to Bottles the mole, a friend of Banjo, the...

Rare's peak game, there isn't another one like it.

  • Excerpt: One morning while Banjo the honey bear is sleeping soundly Grunty, the fat ugly witch, swoops down from her lair and kidnapps Banjo's sister, Tooty! Kazooie the breegull quickly alerts Banjo and the strange duo run outside. From this point there are only crazy colorful adventures full of equally colorful and very well written characters including Bobbles the short sighted mole, Blubber the sea captain, and Mumbo the shamen.

  • Excerpt: I have been playing this game since I was about 10 years old, and I still play it now it is so good. In my opinion it is the best Nintendo 64 game, and its a shame that it hasn't had a follow up on next generation consoles. *Storyline* You play Banjo the bear and Kazzoie the Breegul, who go everywhere together (Kazooie lives in Banjo's backpack).
  • Pros: good for all ages, long game time
  • Cons: hard to get a hold of nowadays

  • Excerpt: This was my first ever Nintendo 64 game, which I got on Christmas day with my Nintendo 64 console. I have been playing it ever since, and come to know it very well, and in my view it's a great game, not just for kids but for people of all ages. The main characters are Banjo the honey bear, and Kazooie the breegull. When Gruntilda the witch kidnaps Banjo's little sister Tootie to steal her good looks with a machine, Banjo and Kazooie set off to rescue her.
  • Pros: Variety of different worlds to explore
  • Cons: None
