Summary: I had never been so disappointed about a video game until I played this so called Banjo-Kazooie game... When I saw the screenshots I was extremely excited that my favorite series of all time was coming back and it looked amazing! Being such a fan of the first two (which I still play) I was expecting something that would blow me away.
Summary: Fun game but definitely more geared towards kids. I was hoping it would share a lot of similarities with the N64 Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie members of the series, but it is a different game entirely. Props to the company for re-inventing the game, but it's been 10 years, It probably didn't need to be re-invented.
Summary: I remember buying Banjo Kazooie for the N64 when it first came out. As a matter of a fact my copy came with the T-shirt and the soundtrack because I preordered the game. I played it, beat it in every way imaginable (multiple times) and the recently repurchased the game for the Xbox 360 arcade and beat it again. When I heard Rare started developing for the franchise again, I was excited.
Summary: Hello! How was your day? I was playing Viva Pinata and NOT Banjo Kazooie. Now, to the review... VIVA PINATA Bottom line: You grow a garden filled with colorful pinatas(you know, those paper things that look like animals you bust open for candy at parties)and characters. You attract more pinatas as you level up and plant more seeds. Story:You don't get much of a story at first, but it unfolds as you go along. Basically you have inherited a garden from this old guy.
Summary: Viva Piñata is a great game that I enjoyed for several months. The interactive game play coupled with the "virtual pet" feeling was pretty fun all around. You are playing from the perspective of a "gardener", whose sole objective is to have the most beautiful "garden" around. I say garden hesitantly, however, because it's really more of a free-range zoo that you end up creating.
