Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Xbox360)

EL33TONLINE
12 February 2009
  • 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.

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Auracore MediaWorks

  • 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

  • Excerpt: I’ll make no bones about it. I hated the previous Banjo Kazooie games. Seemingly cut from the same irritating 3D platform mould that Rare have been trotting o

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts UK Review

IGN
5 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, there’s a great idea at the core of Nuts & Bolts and, from superb construction tools right through to lavish presentation, there are plenty of individual elements worthy of praise. When it fails though, Banjo fails badly and the lack of any fundamentally engaging framework to support the game’s creative elements renders the game pretty much obsolete for anyone looking for something to appreciate beyond the incredibly flexible building component in isolation.

Imaginative adventure game lets players build vehicles.

Common Sense Media
22 September 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that while this game's design and visual aesthetic makes it suitable for children, its sense of humor will be better appreciated by adults, who will likely have the experience necessary to understand the many references made to old television shows and games. Also note that developer Rare Ltd. calls out several of its past games in the story.

  • Excerpt: Platformer Rare + classic franchise = Peoww am cry? This is a hard review for me to write given my love of the original Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie games on the N64 but then again I needn’t worry it’s not like a respected developer like Rare to mess up a franchise by ignoring why people fell in love with it in the first place is it *cough* Starfox Adventures *cough* oh dear… Time hasn’t been kind to Banjo and Kazooie in the eight years since their last adventure,...

  • Summary: Het is werkelijk fantastisch om zelf voertuigen in elkaar te sleutelen. Het is alleen zo jammer dat de rest van de game ongelooflijk saai en leeg is.

Banjo Kazooie

17 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Nu låter jag kanske jättenegativ till spelet, men det är inte riktigt hela sanningen. Banjo Kazooie är idag en väldigt smutsig och oslipad diamant som trots detta alltid bjuder på underhållning och gammal hederlig plattformscharm. Men 1200 poäng för ett tio år gammalt spel med inte många förändringar utöver achievements och en aning förbättrad grafik så står Microsoft och dansar charleston på gränsen till ockerpris.
  • Pros: Några riktigt bra banor. Underbar charm.
  • Cons: Vissa banor är riktiga bottennapp. Dyrt. Alldeles för mycket samlande.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

FZ
9 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Vi vet alla vad som händer när man sitter inne hela dagarna utan att ha något att göra. Ja, man spelar såklart tv-spel. Gör man det i flera år blir man antagligen lite större och slöare. Och det är precis vad som har hänt björnen Banjo och hans fågelvän Kazooie.
  • Pros: En underbar fordonverkstad, Skön stämning, Avslappnad humor
  • Cons: Något trist i längden, Vissa kontroller behöver justeras, Halvtaskig översättning
