User Rating: 9.5 | Banjo to Kazooie no Daibouken N64
The year is 1998. Mario 64 is king of the castle and Goldeneye was the coolest kid on the block. Then out of nowhere a game called 'Banjo Kazooie" comes out to try and dethrone them all. Is Banjo Kazooie all hype or does it live up to all expectations? The answer is yes.

The game starts off all and well until Banjos nap is rudely interrupted by Kazooie of the news that his sister Tootie has been kidnapped by an ugly old witch that wants to steal her looks so she can look like David Beckhams trophy wife Victoria. As simple as this story may sound it's actually deep and complex and has a lot of charm and an amazingly funny script. In Banjo Kazooie there are so many items to collect. Jiggies are just as fun to find as Mario 64's Stars. Sure Banjo Kazooie steals a lot ideas off the brilliant Mario 64 but funny enough Banjo Kazooie is a superior game in almost every way. The only problem is that the controls can be sticky and hard to handle especially swimming underwater. The camera is also a huge problem which I find in most Rare games especially Conker's Bad Fur Day (cringe). Other than these few minor problems, the gameplay is a blast from start to finish.

The graphics are absolutely sublime and are everything you could wish or hope for a game back in 1998. When compared to Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie leaves all its competitors in the dust. The attention to detail on all the characters is absolutely brilliant and brings shame to most games that come out on the 64 for years to come.

One of the most surprising things about Banjo Kazooie is that it has a wonderful soundtrack. Lots of catchy and happy tunes also a lot of memorable and playful tracks that make you laugh especially in the first world when you turn into an ant. In other words the sound flawless.

If you are looking for a lengthy adventure that will keep you busy for weeks, Banjo Kazooie is the game for you. With around 20 hours of gameplay plus another 20-30 on top of that if you're a completionist. Banjo Kazooie is the complete package that will keep you coming back for more.

If you own a Nintendo 64 or even have a remote interest in adventure games. It would be criminal to overlook Banjo Kazooie.
