Summary: this game got a large amount of bad press, because it wasn't what everyone was really wanting (banjo and kazooie three) but if you just put all that out of your head and play it as a entirely new game, in a new series then its actually quite fun! the building is simple and satisfying, its pretty entertaining finding some of the item containers, and everything works and feels as you feel it should. no its not a "real" banjo and kazooie game like everyone wanted...
Summary: Being older and being a big fan of the original Banjo Kazooie. I didn't like this game too much but my kids who I bought this for simply loved it. They had no idea who Banjo Kazooie even was till this game. So I recommend this to anyone new to Banjo Kazooie. If you are already a fan you might have a tough time letting yourself like this one. Now can't say much about Viva Pinata other then another fun game that offers hours of child entertainment.
Summary: Viva Pinata and Banjo: Nuts and Bolts really deserve more credit than they're given. These 2 family-friendly titles get overlooked by the core-gamer due to their bright and colorful atmosphere, but do not be fooled. These games are amazingly fun no matter what gamer-tier you belong to. If you have the money, then there really is no reason not to buy this combo pack. You will not regret it.
Summary: As soon as I got it, I gave it to my husband, since I bought it for him....He would NOT put it down, then my lil one learned how to play it and they were both like in a 'zone' lol cuz they would not stop playing this game....But......for some reason, it got scratched,so now the game can not be played :o(.... I dont know if it happened in the XBox itself, as in the lense, could this happen? Is there a way I could return it for another one? Is it too late?
