Banjo-Kazooie : Nuts & Bolts
16 July 2013
Summary: When I first heard that this game had come out for the X-Box 360, I was excited. I didn't have a 360 at the time, and I wanted to keep my reputation of owning all the B-K games *which are all on their original systems* I worked on my chores all summer - until I finally saved up $110 to buy the 2010 Spring Package X-Box 360 Arcade - which came with Nuts and Bolts, and Viva Pinata.
Summary: I was a little disappointed in this game, granted it was $10.00 and came with a free copy of Viva Pinata, I wasn't wowed at the results of the game. The graphics were better then the actual gameplay. There are different places to explore and different things to do but I was bored after playing for about a half an hour. It came off repetitive with the side missions and I can see where the developer was going with with the game but failed to succeed.
Summary: I was extremely excited over this due to being a die hard BK fan. I wanted to go exploring, find Jiggies, notes, etc, unlock new worlds and just relive what I did on N64, not build cars and race around. Sorry Xbox, you ruined this game.
Summary: I had such high hopes for this game. Having played the last two I was foaming at the mouth with the idea that I would get to take my favorite characters out to explore and defeat whatever was thrown my way. All that you end up doing in this game is driving, racing, driving some more, and then racing to get a prize. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! The best part of this game was replaced with a wanna be racing game.
Summary: Fun for a short while, but gets very repetitive and boring half-way. Lets face it, this is not the Banjo-Kazooie that we all know and love from the first game. There placement into the game was to move product.
Summary: This game wouldn't have been so disappointing if I didn't come into it with the same expectations of a sequel in the Banjo Kazooie series. I was a big fan of the other two games, and though I am aware that Rare was shooting for something entirely different they should simply have renamed the game as something else.
Summary: I'll start by saying that the two original Banjo-Kazooie titles remain my favorite video games of all time. That's a very blunt statement, yes, but you have to understand the means in which I came about these two games. Wind the clocks back to Christmas 1998. I rip the wrapping paper off a rather large package and lo and behold, a brand-new Nintendo 64. I didn't have a clue about what the hell it really was, but it came with two games: Mario Kart 64 and Banjo-Kazooie.
Summary: Let me just start off by saying that I was an immensely HUGE fan of Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie. Growing up, those 2 games were really big for me, and along with Smash Bros and FF7, one of the games that I played the most throughout my life. Suffice to say, I had really high hopes for a new Banjo game.. And then this abomination came out.
