shadowratchet92's Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Xbox 360) review

The Bear and Bird are back after 10 years

That's right world, the Bear and Bird Duo known as Banjo and Kazooie are back in action. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for the X-Box 360 is newest Banjo-Kazooie to come out in over 8 years. So what have the Bird and Bear Duo doing since there last outing? Acting like Nerds by just Eating Pizza and playing video games. Yes, they have been doing that for the last 8 years. When Grunty yet again comes back, all she is is a head. Out of no where, someone called Lord of Games (Or A.K.A L.O.G) comes, he makes Banjo and Grunty race. When the 2 have a ptitiful race, L.O.G attempts to settle the conflict between the two by devising a series of worlds and challenges. He give Grunty a new body, and restore Banjo and Kazooie's bodies back to there fit selfs and transports them to Showdown Town and starts the contest. The winner would be set to own Spiral Mountain; the loser must endure eternal hardship at L.O.G's video game factory. While Banjo and Kazooie seek to win by completing the challenges, Grunty uses her powers and abilities to try and stop the duo. An army of mechanical Gruntbots also assist the witch in her goal. The Story is typical a Banjo-Kazooie story. The Hummer and Charm of the Original is still here and funny. But, It's all text Written, and it's either that I have bad eye's, or the text can be hard to read since it's very small. It's not Dead Rising small, but still hard to read. But still, the story is funny and entertaining. The Gameplay is different from the original N64. All the moves and what not you use to learn are all gone. Instead, you have the power to use vehicles. Yes, I said Vehicles. You can create them from scratch, or buy Blue Prints so they can be made instantly. So may cry foul play, but it's an interesting way to play. If I had any problem with this, It's that you have to add in the variables of things like how wheels are spaced, the weight of the vehicle and so on, and due to this, this leads to a steep learning curve. Once you get passed it, you get a fun and enjoyable game. There are tones of challenges to do. There all enjoyable to do and like the original games, if you find a Challenge to hard for you current stuff, you can come back later and use new stuff. Now While there are tones of them, there could of been more verity. Find stuff and race's can get a bit boring. The game is said to take 20 hours long, and that's a good length for me. The look of the game is incredible. This game looks beautiful. The levels are colorful, character models look great and animate well, and this game just looks great. The little voice clips can get a bit annoying for some, but, it's like a tradition for the Series. Can you imagine what they would sound like if they had voices? No, not really. The Sound effects are cartoony, but enjoyable, and the music is great and remasters a lot of classic tunes we all know and love. Overall, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts is a fun game. If your a fan of the series, you will enjoy it. If your looking for a Unique game, look no further than Nuts and Blots. The learning Curve does take a while to get pass, but it's still a fun experience

    Banjo Kazooie is, or in some ways should be Microsoft’s platformer mascot. It’s a shame that this game and its characters aren’t the spectacle, or not anymore since the N64 days. But that shouldn’t stop you from getting the newest Banjo Kazooie game because Banjo Kazooie: Nut’s and Bolts is a fantastic game that’s well worth your dollar. To get everything out of the way for a second, Banjo Kazooie: Nut’s and Bolts is still platformer. It’s just one that is untraditional in a sense. You are sti...
