Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I remember back in the day when Rare was one of the premiere developers in the video game industry. In fact almost all their games were golden in the eye of most beholders. Now it seems like they have gotten cynical, unhappy and generally lost the formula to what a family friendly title is. Sure they did the Viva Pinata games, and those were good. I had some high expectations going into Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts.

  • Conclusion: At our house Nuts & Bolts pulls double duty. I play to advance; clearing missions about 50 percent of the time; exploring 30 percent of the time and building the rest. I like to stockpile parts, then spend an hour building what I like to think appears engineered. Once I build a vehicle, whether it’s for protection, flight, speed, passengers, raw power, or brute force, I commit. I also like to explore because Rare keeps surprising me.

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: In any medium, be it TV, movies, print or even videogames, a little self-referential humour can go a long way. A lot of self-referential humour, however, can ruin the intended experience, and constant ‘breaking of the fourth wall’ is enough to sour and dilute any creative (or non-creative) endeavour.

Review: Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts (Xbox 360)

Gametactics
7 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Innovative design. Great puzzler. Enormous wit and charm. If you’re looking for something different and fresh on the Xbox 360 after Viva Piñata, this is the title to get. It’s not perfect but if you like legos, platformers, and/or puzzles; you can’t go wrong with Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Now, in Nuts & Bolts, the collect-a-thon is very much optional.  For me, the collectibles are typically things to aim for when testing a vehicle. 95% of the game is spent in a vehicle; some pre-built, some of your own creation.  For the less patient (or younger gamer) the pre-built vehicles are a perfect way to keep the game moving at a faster pace.

  • Excerpt: Banjo and Kazooie have gotten lazy over the years. In their prime they were the top tandem of platforming, but now all they do is lounge around eating junk food, playing video games and getting fat. I suppose in some ways the platforming genre has taken the same lethargic path, and so Rare are looking to crank things up a gear, get their duo back in shape and change platforming as we know it.

9 December 2008
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is It hasn’t been long since RARE impressed us with the latest entry to the Viva Piñata series. The game was colourful and filled with things for you and your imagination to explore. Sadly though, it did not sell as many copies as certain other brain-dead games out there due to its kiddie exterior. However, true gamers knew the treasure hidden deep within the title.

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Auracore MediaWorks
4 December 2008
  • Summary: Nuts & Bolts is essentially a new coat of paint on an old car.
  • Pros: Vehicle creation is insanely robust; can create almost any type of vehicle; self referential and sarcastic storyline
  • Cons: The vehicle controls are a mess; missions get very repetitive very fast; a collectathon of the highest order; most areas of the game end up being more annoying than challenging
