  1. Speaking of play mechanics, I can honestly say that I haven't had this much fun playing a game in a very long time. Not only do the controls harbor the utmost precision, but the camera has been refined as well.
  2. If you're not into platform games, it probably won't change your religion, but I can at least guarantee you that it's got a much lower crap-fest-purchase-risk-factor than any of the shiny new PS2 games you could drop 50 bucks on.

    The graphics are unbelievable, the sound is fantastic and the game has so much replay value it just might be sitting in your N64 for months to come.

    There's an awesome amount of gameplay packed into this cart. The landscapes are so huge it's a challenge to remember everything you need to do.
  5. Don't expect to jump in and then jump out of Banjo's world -- once netted, you'll remain til the end.

    The levels in Banjo-Tooie border on being too large -- it's rather easy to get lost in many areas. The level design, though, is superb, and the visuals are top-notch for the N64.

    The whole idea of platformer as scavenger hunt, though, has aged as well as a tuna sandwich left out on a hot California day. Sadly, this bear is starting the smell just as bad.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. After finishing banjo-kazooie a lot of times i wanted to have the same experience again and oh boy here is banjo-tooie bringing the joy, the adventure, the music and the fun of the first game but on steroids, This game is huge and not just in worlds but in moves, things to collect, bosses, and my favorite thing in the game. All the levels are connected you can go from the first level to the 5th Or Throw and ice cube of the sky level to the lava level etc. Expand

    Wow! loved this game although I'd probly find it a bit dated now. When I grow old and think bout the times I used to play video games Wow! loved this game although I'd probly find it a bit dated now. When I grow old and think bout the times I used to play video games this game will probably spring to mind first. Awesome game too bad rare had to fall off after joining Microsoft. Expand

    Banjo-Tooie may not be as memorable as the first installment but it is a fantastic new game and it does everything it promises.

    Par où commencer?
    Ce jeu était certainement un bon jeu, mais cependant, il l'était!
    Tout d'abord les graphismes.
    Certes, c'est un peu vache de juger un jeu aux balbutiements de la 3D sur ceci mais comment passer à coté des graphismes qui sont affreusement lait à l'ère des jeux AAA tels que Cyberpunk 2077.
    Cependant, force est de constater que l'humour propre à la série est présent, ce qui lui accorde quelques points.
    Mais sur le gameplay. Le Gameplay est très peu intuitif et horriblement daté, ce qui rend le jeu beaucoup plus dur qu'à l'accoutumée.
    Bref, je ne le recommande plus aux joueurs même les plus aguerris, ils risquent de voir vite leurs espoirs brisés
