Oh Banjo, how I missed you.
I have to say, Banjo-Kazooie has really impressed me. Having played the original in my earlier days, I have pretty fond memories of the series, and this addition doesn't harm the nostalgic effect at all. Vehicle creation and control is as simple as can be, and it works perfectly (well, nothing is perfect, but this is pretty darn near). The game made me chuckle a few times, too.
