Just You Wait 'Til Banjo Tooie! Review with images

AdvantagesSlighty Updated Graphics/ Bigger Levels/ Lots Of Fun

DisadvantagesSlight slow down/ Home to a out-dated console/ Back Tracking

"Banjo Kazooie fans after putting their heart and soul in to acquiring every single golden jigsaw piece in 'Banjo Kazooie' were rewarded with a special ending sequence after the completion of the game, and were informed that a sequel, jokingly called 'Banjo Tooie' would released. The wait for this sequel lasted from 1998 until 2001, and many fans of the original were very eager to grab this game for two reasons. One, it was a sequel to 'Banjo Kazooie', ..." Read review

Stunner of a Sequel

AdvantagesVast levels, addictive, great fun, suitable for all the family

DisadvantagesRepetitive background music

"...since the enormously popular original Banjo Kazooie. After what seemed like an eternity, we were finally able to get our hands on the game and get stuck into some serious joypad bashing. We’re now totally addicted, it’s that kind of game, you’ll find yourself saying, ‘I’ll just get this last jigsaw piece and then I’ll stop’. An hour later, you’ll still be totally engrossed! Banjo Tooie certainly lived ..." Read review

Summer sizziling sequel

AdvantagesColourful, fun, entertaining and opposite of all bad.

DisadvantagesYou may need to know your background on the orginal to follow the plot.

"...hype as we can take, Banjo Tooie is here and Rare has done it again. Sometimes you think they cannot go wrong. This time they have made a sequel to Banjo Kazooie. Banjo Kazooie was one of the best games of the summer 2 years ago. People thought it could not be improved, well prepare to be proved wrong. Banjo Tooie is set a couple of years after the original. We al thought the evil witch, Gruntilda had long since passed away, but her evil twin sisters ..." Read review

Banjo Tooie

AdvantagesGenius a game that will have you hooked.

DisadvantagesNeed to play Banjo Kazzoie to get the most out of the game, Some levels can take too long.

"...gave the world Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, Conker and Goldeneye wouldn’t you? You would expect the same company that produced classics such as Conker to deliver breathtaking worlds and environments for gamers to revel in well deliver they have! Rare have done it again by toping everything done previously in platform games and then went and did that little bit extra and if you think that this is “just another platformer” well ..."

It Takes Tooie to Tango

AdvantagesSee Article

DisadvantagesSee Article

"...the end of Banjo- Kazooie, Banjo the honey bear, and his good friend Kazooie the breegul are back. What they don’t know, is that Grunty is free to roam Spiral Mountain once again. She, of course, has a small matter of revenge to deal with, and poor Bottles the mole is the victim. So once again, Banjo and Kazooie set off on an adventure to stop the witch once and for all. What’s new? Now, you can replay parts of the game to your heart’s ..." Read review

The Bear and Bird are Back

AdvantagesSuperb Sequel from the best in the business

DisadvantagesSame old thing

"Banjo and Kazooie were Rare’s first platform game on the N64, it features a bear (Banjo) who carries his friend, a bird (Kazooie), around in his back pack! They had to rescue Banjo’s sister from an evil witch! I’ve got all the other ‘Rare’ platformers, included Banjo Kazooie so I was always waiting for this sequel to emerge. It continues two years after the events of the original and carries on in much the same ..." Read review

Advantagesbreaths new life into the n64

Disadvantagesstill has the cutsi graphics

"...3D landscapes of Mario 64. Banjo Tooie is Rares third attempt at the 3D platform genre, and in my opinion they have created some of the best games available today. The story revolves around Banjo and Kazooie, the bear and bird double act from the original game. The two of them make a great team, and compliment each other perfectly. Banjo the dopey Honey Bear and Kazooie the wise cracking bird, the dialogue for the two is written in a way that it ..." Read review

Get a Jiggy with it

Advantagesenormous and beautiful

Disadvantagesyou have to stop playing eventually

"...who was playing cards with Banjo and Kazooie. With the help of the local shaman Mumbo Jumbo the pair embark on a quest to once again destroy the evil witch and her two sisters and to avenge Bottles. The gameplay remains the same as ‘Banjo Kazooie’ if not better. The graphics are gorgeous and simply stunning, and the characters are numerous and diverse. Whilst the game may appeal to younger kids the game is actually quite tricky and ..." Read review

Tooie to none

AdvantagesVery big, takes ages to complete with everything

DisadvantagesRather slow and move driven

"...form,and standing on it.Even when Banjo and Kazooie split up,it´s almost in order for them to stand on two seperate switches that open another door.But then,when Rare aren´t cynically extending Banjo-tooie´s lifespan by withholding moves or making you wander back and forth between Humba´s hut to to transform,they´re charming you with some top notch puzzles.Tensely tip-toeing up to a caveman´s treasure;using spluttering generators in a pitch-black ..."

Great Game

Advantageseverything

DisadvantagesNothing

" You get to travel through levels, turn into different people, experience the magic, and surprisingly you get to go on a roller coster as there is a actual theme park in one of the levels. This is probably my favourite games, it is adventurous,genius,great graphics,eye catching and theres so many levels to keep you occupied. This is a game like Zelda, one of those games which you can't just complete in seconds its really intresting and you can't ..." Read review

Tooie is to Good

AdvantagesSuperb Graphics, Huge Worlds, Funny Plot

DisadvantagesGameplay - The game could be longer, it could have more in it.

"Banjo Kazooie was one of the best games from Rare on the Nintendo 64, besides Perfect Dark. The game was one of the most highly rated, until now. Banjo Tooie burst onto the scene and had everything that a computer game should have. A great adventure game and a solid multiplayer which should have you going for hours. The game starts off with Banjo and Kazooie along with Bottles and Mumbo Jumbo playing cards. A noise is heard as Grunty's sisters outside ..." Read review

Banjo Tooie (N64) - Nintendo 64

The annoying little red-crested breegull Kazooie is back in action in Banjo-Tooie and ... more

sporting a host of more than 40 new abilities,
including Claw Clamber Boots, Breegull Blaster,
Bill Drill and the wacky Clockwork Kazooie Eggs.
It's a good thing, because you'll need all the
firepower you can muster as they confront the 10
new, huge end bosses. Banjo the bear is alive and
kicking, too, with some awesome enhancements and
new abilities. Also, Mumbo Jumbo the shaman makes
an appearance with his amazing bag of spells. He's
even a playable character in some levels. It will
come as no surprise to gamers that Gruntilda the
witch is once again up to no good, spreading her
bad breath and venom across eight new worlds.
Aside from the returning cast, gamers will be
introduced to more than 125 new characters. In
this sequel, Banjo has the ability to get Kazooie
off of his back... literally. The dynamic duo of
Banjo and Kazooie must separate in order to solve
the many puzzles and overcome obstacles that will
confront them in this game. Both of them can also
transform into different creatures, each with
specific abilities that allow them to perform
special tasks, which would otherwise be impossible
for them to execute in their native forms. Banjo,
for example, can turn into a washing machine or a
submarine, but still maintains the familiar yellow
shorts and blue backpack that gamers have become
accustomed to him wearing. The gameplay has more
of a cinematic approach this time around--there's
support for widescreen and surround-sound--and the
camera system has been tweaked to provide better
shots of the action. What's more, Banjo-Tooie is
loaded with 10 multiplayer games that will
accommodate--get this--four players. Two
favourites are the unique egg-blasting
first-person shoot-outs and one called "Bottles
Revenge". --Todd Mowatt
