  1. One of those games that isn't big on originality but it excels in what it set out to do: bring us a racing game that's truly addictive in every sense.
  2. Easily one of the best racers to have been released during the Game Boy Advance's life. It races well, it's fun while it lasts, and it's pretty to boot.

    The final product definitely plays it safe, but at least Banjo Pilot offers a lot of challenge in its design.
  4. When it comes to multiplayer matches, this one will be the reigning king in my Gameboy for a long time to come, though I admittedly won't be popping it into my link port-less NDS again.
  5. Banjo Pilot's biggest problem is the simplicity of its design. It feels like you are flying the same tracks over and over (and often you are, though in reverse), and there is no feeling of connection to the physics because it doesn't really matter what kind of level you're racing on.

    This game made me very skeptical. A Banjo Kazooie racing game? I mean Banjo was in Diddy Kong Racing. Anyways, the game isn't memorable andThis game made me very skeptical. A Banjo Kazooie racing game? I mean Banjo was in Diddy Kong Racing. Anyways, the game isn't memorable and has it's flaws but it's a fun simple game. I don't recommend it entirely but if you see it in a store you should buy it. Full Review »
