Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
13 December 2014
Conclusion: Final Thoughts: If you purchase this game expecting it to be exactly like those previous, then you might as well take it back. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts is almost complete a divergence from its originals, but change isn't necessarily a bad thing. Open your mind a bit, and you will like this game.
Excerpt: It’s been ten years since the original Banjo-Kazooie saw its first daylight and in that time the game has made it to that small list of titles where many people put on their all time favorites.
Summary: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
isn't for everyone. If you're not a fan of building and creating, then you will absolutely hate it. However, if that just happens to be right down your alley, then you'll have a blast.
Pros: Tons of areas and content to discover., Your favorite characters are back!, Streamlined creation system, Interesting physics, Polished, solid gameplay
Cons: Longtime Banjo fans may find the new formula disappointing, No voiceovers, Tons of fetch quests and races
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.
Excerpt: Let's lay some groundwork here: Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts isn't a platform game. Anyone living in hope of some last minute substitution on the genre front should realign their perceptions now. So let's all get over any lingering prejudice riding merrily on vague nostalgia and get down to business.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I feel a bit bad for Banjo Kazooie and his creative caretakers at Rare; their latest stab at stardom for the bird and bear is an amazingly fresh experience that should be heralded by game makers and players alike.
