This game, if you can call it that, is a shameful smear on the legacy of Banjo and Kazooie. It's a cool idea to collect pieces to build automobile like things (like Pikmin) but not when you reduce two of the most iconic characters of the Nintendo 64-Rare partnership to a cheap budget story of garbage picking to do so. Despite being a big fan of Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie, I refused to buy/play this game until it became very cheap simply because I disliked the visual presentation. The two Nintendo 64 titles were very creative, theatrical, enthusiastic and entertaining while this one is more of a let-down which concedes defeat. The series would be much better off without Nuts and Bolts, hands down.

dissapointing. microsoft killed rare when they made the kinect. IMO kameo was still pretty good but BK N&B was just a bad BK game

Not the best game, certainly not better than the previous games but is not that bad neither, maybe some people will find some enjoyment on that thing. But for me? I find it boring, its just like "Test your creativity for all these boring tasks". The humor is really forced (specially at the intro).

A uniquely good game that's gotten a bad rap. If you find it on the cheap, give it a go!

I have to say this first. ITS A GOOD GAME. BUT! as many of you might expect we wanted a true successor to BK... Still the change of gameplay might harm the actual quality of the game. its just that many are influence by nostalgia. Because many of us expected a plat former instead of a custom builder cart type of game. I say give this a try if you loved BK, and want to be creative.

It's a good game, no matter what. But due to it being a Banjo-Kazooie game without the Platforming, it is shunned and it isn't concered a "True" Banjo-Kazooie game. but nevertheless, i love it and i always like driving around in Banjo-Land and Spiral Mountain. This is a old hidden jem from the last days of Classic RareWare and it is a really good buy.

A fun game that actually suffers from the Banjo Kazooie license. It's fun to build your vehicle and see how well it works. But if you wanted another Rareware platforming masterpiece, unfortunately this isn't the game for you.

Although not a real squeal, it's still loads of fun

As a stand alone game it's great. You have virtually limitless creative possibilities, but as a sequel to banjo kazooie it's not that great.

While it may not live up to it's predecessors, I personally liked this one. Seeing that Banjo and Kazooie would be in a HD game after so long really got me hyped, and if I'm honest, I really think it followed through. Sure, it's not a platformer as much as we'd like it to have been, but it's near limitless creative options really kept me coming to this game. Definitely worthy of the sequel name.
