This game is kind of hard to get into, I get that it was a design choice to just be text rather than voiced. But starting up the game it took me a couple of hours to actually figure out how to unlock areas and drive the vehicle. I guess I like this game but I just feel like it is a little hard to get into and would be easier for me to get into with a more in depth tutorial. Bottom line neat game steep learning curve when you first start.
Playing Banjo close to two years after it's release
I finished Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts last week. Overall I am glad it was ridiculously cheap where I bought it, at one tenth of the full price. Banjo Kazooie is a cute franchize and I played the N64 games on XBLA, but Nuts and Bolts is just so boring. Some of the races were fun, but the game doesn't have enough variation to make the 20-25 hours you'll spend on it not feel like a waste of time. I do however like the whole "we know it's a game and so do you, so let's make the game aware that it's a game" idea.
I played it, but never finished. I liked building at first. I even built a few crazy vehicles that had nothing to do with any of the challenges just cause. But the game constantly requires you to keep building to cater to new trials. I lost interest, because of all the trial and error building. I really can't go back and finish after all this time.
" I really, really love that game and I got every T.T. Trophy apart from the one from the UFO mission, but I feel like I can never go back to it. Also some of the T.T. Trophy requirements are insane and are REALLY infuriating, it's horrible. "F the UFO mission, oh my god. It's incredibly frustrating. Took me like 4-5 tries just to get the jiggy and I immediately just said "screw the T.T.".
" @JJWeatherman: It took me about 7 times to get the Jiggy and then I spent the better part of a morning trying to get the Trophy with the mentality of "I wont let the game win." Unfortunately it did win. "That's rough. You should come back to it sometime and try again. I always find that when I get super stuck and frustrated, I can often beat those parts after taking a break. It's probably been a while by now though.
