Banjo-Kazooie (N64): A bird in your rucksack is worth even more than two in the b ...
15 May 2011
Summary: 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.
Pros: Good fun to play, well constructed levels, humourous dialogue and characters
Cons: A little short and doesn't have that much replay value
Is that a bird in your pack or are you just pleased to see me?

Excerpt: "...as a cartoonish bear called Banjo and his best friend Kazooie who is a bird contained within his backpack. These two characters work together in order to thwart the schemes of the evil witch Gruntilda who holds Banjo’s sister in her clutches. This is your typical Saturday morning cartoon and damsel in distress fare but it serves to set the scene for classic 3D platform game action. Story 10/10 It’s a rare (or a Rare) game indeed that deserves ...
Summary: 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.
Pros: Huge game, with loads of funny characters, great levels, and it's challenging.
Cons: I want more! Perhaps the final fight is a bit easy...?
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. You have to collect ...
Pros: Fantastic story line and levels
Cons: Camera is a bit juddery and annoying at times
Summary: 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...

Summary: 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.
Pros: classic platforming, perfect adventure elements

Summary: 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.
Summary: I was given Banjo Kazooie as my first Nintendo 64 game for Christmas a few years ago, and still enjoy playing it now. I completed it with great challenge, but I enjoyed going through each different world/level, as the difficulty rose. Banjo is a loveable bear whos sister is kidnapped by an evil witch. By using your controls and a series of moves, help Banjo and his conpanion, Kazooie find her.
Pros: Fun game, good graphics, clear instruction manual
