Showing 1-10 of 11
Unplayable. Rare is dead.
22 September 2014
Summary: I bought this because I love RARE. I really enjoyed playing their games on my Nintendo 64. Unfortunately, their XBOX 360 games are not as good as the N64 ones. In fact, some basic issues make these games near unplayable. Viva Pinata If you have more than 30 or so things in your garden it won't let you place any more. This includes fence tiles. This makes it impossible to build enough fences to prevent total chaos from overtaking your garden.
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: I have played 1000s of video games, my son quite a few. While the game may look entertaining I found it just a bunch of noise. Update 7-20-2014 Must get kids games: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Xbox 360 (3-6 year old, 2 player, easy and fun) Toy Story 3 The Video Game - Playstation 3 (3-9 year old+, 2 player, FPS for kids) Rio - Xbox 360 (3-9 year old+, 4 player, 30+ Party games for kids) Lego Batman (3-7 year old+, 2 player, puzzler, 3rd person shooter) Disney...
Summary: Lets face it Banjo-Kazooie on N64 was and still is a fantastically good game. So a Banjo-Kazooie on 360... what more could you want? The answer is you want to have never, ever played this game. Banjo-Kazooie (N64) worked because it was a simple concept which played well. So why have the creators removed everything that was good about the game and made a game about building and racing trolleys and cars. The game is in no way relevant to the original except for characters.
Summary: I'm a massive fan of all ORIGINAL Rare games (Banjo, Conker, Ghoulies, Kameo) but this one was nothing like what I was expecting. It has very little to do with the original plots of Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie and in my opinion is quite boring. It is now effectively a racing game. If you are expecting something like the original Rare talent then I'm afraid will will be wasting your hard earned money on this game.
Summary: I have played the demo for this game an i have been really disapointed , the original on the nintendo was amazing if that was on the xbox 360 i would be first to buy it. I know that it this is only the demo i have played on an the music and game pay is amazing but this is not at all like the original on the nintendo. really is disapointing.
Summary: I really loved the original Banjo Kazooie and recently played the the demo of Nuts and Bolts. The game looks beautiful and the music is great but for some unknown reason the developers have turned XBox 360's only real rival Mario game into a vehicle modding game. I was looking forward to a really good platform game and was really disappointed. I will probably download the original Banko Kazooie of the xbox market place but will not be buying this game.
