    A good time... for the first two hours.

    The Good: First few levels are fun; challenge ramps up slowly... The Bad: Poorly paced; Very short; Later levels suck... Nothing like a good game of Banjo-Kazooie, right? Wrong. Unlike the grand n64 titles, and ... Read Full Review

    A good game, but not enough goodness

    Banjo Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge is the first handheld BK game. It's a really fun game except for a few problems. Number one: It's way too short. There are only a few levels and they are really short. The game is grea... Read Full Review

    The Nintendo 64 was great because it was Nintendo’s chance to prove that it was the best company. SquareSoft was supporting Sony, and nothing could change that. The release of Super Mario 64 changed all platformers for... Read Full Review

    An underrated entry in the Banjo-Kazooie series

    When I first read the reviews, I thought this came was one the cheapest spin-offs ever... after playing through the game I dare to say this game is really underrated. Summary Everything in this game just breathes t... Read Full Review

    A breath of fresh air to the increasingly stale collection of platformers for the Advance...

    Now this is something. Rare’s first game for a Nintendo machine since being sold to Microsoft is a breath of fresh air to the increasingly stale collection of platformers for the Advance, with the most noticeable aspect ... Read Full Review

    Great game, but definitely not perfect.

    OK so I used to love the Banjo series on the N64. They're still among my top favorite games. So, when I saw that they made another game on the GBA, I had to buy it! I mean, its a great series, and then they just made it ... Read Full Review

    Banjo is better on the N64.

    Banjo-Kazooie for the N64 has been a childhood favorite of mine for many years. It's hard not to fall in love with it's witty humor, wacky characters, and colorful and creative levels. But since the fall of the N64, Banj... Read Full Review

    The last real jiggy worth getting, if you can find it.

    Hello, Ouro is the name, and this line is clichéd so I won't end it the same. This is my first review, so please excuse. Well, I grew up playing all kinds of games, primarily Nintendo, Which I'd still rather do than watc... Read Full Review
