1.0 out of 5 stars Need HD TV., 17 Nov 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I can't comment on the game play personally. However if you want to be able to actually READ the text in game, which I'm assuming is quite essential since I have no idea what to do, then you need a HD TV. I read a forum post that RARE don't plan on fixing this problem with standard TV's.

So if you want to play this game make sure you have a HD TV or you will suffer from headaches and blurry eyes. What a jip.

Yes, there is a problem with the text size for standard-defination TV's (if you don't have a HD telly, then you've got a standard-definition TV). This is a really bad oversight that the game's testers made - not everyone has a HD set.

However, Rare are planning to fix this within the next 30 days by releasing a downloadable patch. This will correct the text so it will be large enough to read on standard-definition TV's. The download will only be available to those that have their Xbox 360 console connected to the Xbox Live service, however.

If there are any unsure parents out there that are hoping to get this game as a gift, ask who you're buying for whether they play their games on a HD TV or not, and be sure to ask if their Xbox 360 is connected to Xbox Live (basically, wired into your internet connection). If they play games on their Xbox over the internet, then they should be connected. ;)

Hope this helps!
