Amazon.co.uk Review

Banjo-Kazooie mimics the look and feel of Mario 64, a truly innovative and visually stunning game that belongs in any Nintendo 64 collection. But don't brush off this 3-D action-adventure as an uninspired clone. On the contrary, Banjo-Kazooie introduces more than enough originality to warrant a spot next to its famous mentor.

The game introduces two of the most charming virtual heroes in recent years--the goofy, floppy honey bear, Banjo, and his faithful, feathered sidekick Kazooie. In the game's introduction, we discover that the sinister witch Gruntilda not only nabbed Banjo's sister Tooty, but stole her beauty as well. Naturally, it's up to the bear-bird team to retrieve Tooty and rid the world of one inconsiderate witch.

In this beautifully-rendered and massive game world, players run, jump, swim, climb and flip over obstacles, defeat all sorts of "baddies", and find and collect numerous items and clues that help the quest to progress. Playing as both Banjo and Kazooie, players hone their characters' actions, learning nearly two dozen special moves that help players expertly defeat foes and successfully tread through the nine worlds.

Banjo-Kazooie is one of those games that can demand hours upon hours of perseverance, patience and learning of skills to complete. But don't let that discourage you. This epic game is so much fun that reaching the end will be an afterthought. --Eric Twelker, Amazon.com

    Pros:
  • Nicely-paced gameworld filled with well-designed challenges
  • Excellent character control with numerous special moves
  • Gorgeous graphics
    Cons:
  • Numerous--often complex--special moves may discourage some casual gamers

This game is solid as a rock. It has good graphics, excellent game physics (charater motion and control), funny and fairly imaginative story, brilliant characters, enjoyable and well made levels and tons more!
This is honestly one of the best games on the Nintendo 64 and no one should be without it. I still look back on it with very fond memories. The levels are really enjoyable and will have you coming back for more time and time again. My favourite level is Freeze-easy peak because of the wonderful Christmas feel to it!
Just buy it, you really can't go wrong here. A really solid, must-have game!

If you like traditional platforming games, then you must get this game if you haven't already. Banjo-Kazooie is as good as Super Mario 64, but contrary to popular opinion it is not just jumping on the Mario bandwagon - it can easily hold its own as one of the best games for the N64. The story is basically a spoof of Snow White: during the first cutscene Gruntilda the witch looks into her Magic Mirror and discovers that Tooty, Banjo's small sister, is prettier than she. Determined to be the prettiest of them all, she kidnaps Tooty so she can steal her beauty and make Tooty ugly.
Banjo-Kazooie is typical of all the Rare games because it is full of humour; don't be fooled into thinking it is just a kid's game because of the bright colours and childish storyline (not to say that it is unsuitable for children). The gameplay is complicated but it does not become repetitive or boring due to the diversity of the tasks in the game, however if you don't like collecting a lot of items (and this is a major component) you may end up rushing through and then not being able to progress much further. All in all, there is a lot to do and this game will last you a good 50-60 hours of gaming.
The graphics are colourful and the textures seamless, and the music is especially good because it is one of the first games to seamlessly incorporate different tunes depending on where you are in the game (for example if you approach an enemy).
This is a good, clean, fun game for all the family (which isn't code for "actually very boring"). It is truely one of the Nintendo classics, especially as Rare managed to pull off an equally successful sequel, Banjo-Tooie.

I have been rien on platformers throughout my life. I have brief recollections of playing Super Mario 64, Sonic Adventure and Crash Bandicoot; but one game has always tood out in my memory more than any other, and that game is Banjo-Kazooie. After a re-ppurchae of a N64 last summer the first game i bought was this, and i wa not disapointed becaue over the past few months, this game has become my favourite game of all time; it if fun, humourous with brilliant level design and some of the most catchy tunes ever implemented into a video game.

Whilst i know of people who have simply dismissed this as a 'mario 64 clone', i disagree, because whilst super Mario 64 layed the foundations for 3D platforming, calling one 3D platformer a SM64 clone would be basically saying that almost every one of them is. Benjo-Kazooie just took the formula of SM64 and perfected it by adding better controls, better stage design, better music and better characters. I guarantee that if you are a fan of platformers then you will love this game because unlike many N64 games, this is has aged brilliantly and in my opinion, shall always remain the greatest video game of all time

What a totally excellent game!!! I have totally loved playing this game from "Mumbo's Mountain" all the way to Winter in "Click Clock Wood"! If only Nintendo/Rare would bring out another Banjo game, this time on GameCube. The nine levels are totally BRILLIANT... finding the 10 jiggis and the 5 jinjos on each... excellent gameplay.

I remember playing this game as a child and absolutely loving it. The game itself was really huge for it's time and even today it's still quite a sizeable adventure. The characters are endearing, the humour is legitimately funny, the game controls very smoothly, the environments are very colourful, the levels are a lot of fun to explore and the music is just incredible. This platformer is arguably one of the best games out there for the Nintendo 64, one you shouldn't be without.

The N64 needed no more platformers. Mario 64 sat on top of the pile, with nobody to challenge its greatness - until this came out. It had good graphics and superb storyline, the controls always felt perfect and to round it off it had more puzzles than Mario 64. In platformers I love puzzles and was extremely happy to find this had them in abundance. It really is a cracking game, and nowadays if you route out your old N64 you can get this game for pennies. If you love Mario 64 you WILL love this.

This game has some of the best graphics on N64 and some pretty good tunes too, which will have you humming and whistling along! You will fall in love with this game, unless your heart is made of stone and you have no sense of humour. With a decent learning curve and alot of imagination put in to the worlds, you will be banjo and kazooie's best mate in no time!

This is THE best game on the nintendo. It is challenging but not impossible with funny characters and a quirky plot. It is suitable for all ages and if you're good enough to finish it 100% there is a secret ending giving you clues to the games big secrets......... but the catch is you'll have to wait for the sequel to access them! A must buy, and the sequel is looking to be one of the hottest games on the nintendo. P.S. Any game by Rare will be sure to stun you
