  • 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 ...
  • Pros: Great gameplay, good visuals and humour
  • Cons: Could have been a bit longer

Banjo Kazooie - from the grave!

benraiben, Ciao
26 April 2005
  • Excerpt: "...game of course - was Banjo Kazooie! So, who are stars of the game? To cut a long story short, I was attracted to the game by it's main characters - Banjo the honey bear, who dons bright yellow shorts and a bright blue rucksack. The second main character is Kazooie, a rare form of bird named a red crested breegell, who spends most of her time in Banjo's rucksack - sticking her head out frequently to tease and name calls other characters in ...
  • Pros: Hours Of Fun/ Playable by a range of age/ Not too hard .
  • Cons: On a dated console/ No longer the best graphics/

  • Excerpt: "What do you get when you cross a bear with a bird? Give up? Aw, c'mon, you haven't even tried any freaky genetic experiments yet . . . okay, what if the bear just wore a backpack that contained the bird in it? Okay quit guessing you get Banjo-Kazooie. The object of Banjo-Kazooie is simple - rescue your sister (What not you compleatly dim girlfriend, but where is the romance?) from the hands of the evil witch before the witch steals her youth and ...
  • Pros: highly addictive cool game
  • Cons: I tells you in hours minutes and seconds how much of your life you have spent in theame

  • Excerpt: "...who was playing cards with Banjo and Kazooie. With the help of the local shaman Mumbo Jumbo the pair embark on a quest to once again destroy the evil witch and her two sisters and to avenge Bottles. The gameplay remains the same as ‘Banjo Kazooie’ if not better. The graphics are gorgeous and simply stunning, and the characters are numerous and diverse. Whilst the game may appeal to younger kids the game is actually quite tricky and ...

12 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "...amazing system of stunning looks Banjo Kazooie was simply the best 3D platformer available. Of course, to this date Rare have made many more platformers like Conkers bad fur day which has just been released and the mighty Donkey Kong 64 but not many will ever reach the standards of this masterful game. You will never forget this game and the worlds it takes you to so take it from me and pick this game up if you ever see it lieing around, you ...

  • Excerpt: "Banjo Kazooie is one of the best N64 games I own. This game is action packed and is filled with different worlds, moves, enemies and puzzles. It is also very colourful and has good graphics. When I first played this game I didn't really know what to do, luckily for me there is a mole named Bottles at hand to help newcomers along the way and on each level you have to find him to get a new move. Your mission for this game is to rescue Banjo's sister ...
  • Pros: Lots of things to do . Very colourful and good graphics .
  • Cons: You can beome stuck on a puzzle for quite a while and this becomes annoying .
