A video game review written by: Lee Sonogan
(2000) Animation, adventure, comedy
I remember getting this video game when I was really young for Christmas. But the game cartridge was not in the box and I was very upset about it. Banjo-Tooie is the sequel to the classic Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie. While some people say that the first Banjo game was the best. I prefer the sequel for many reasons. It is so much cooler then it looks. And in this following review, I will describe why it is one of the best video games of its genres.
This game takes place two years after Banjo-Kazooie. In the first location in bother games, Mumbo’s Mountain, this game opens up to many more interesting locations. Compared to the first game this game has bigger locations with many more features and gameplay mechanics. Locations or levels include fun challenges such as solving puzzles, collecting items and defeating bosses. All equally as fun to do while all three are very different missions in the game.
Compared to the first game, Banjo-Tooie has more crude themes. It has more humour in it in the dialogue. And it even has subtle sexual references. As you play this game, the story develops. While having new stories with new characters are everywhere. This video game is nonlinear so you get choices in what you can do and when. Plenty of side missions are everywhere. With this video game having a great overall soundtrack, you can take your time and still have a good time.
On average it takes 50 hours to collect and beat everything in this video game if you are good. This game was re-released as part of Rare Reply on the Xbox One in 2015. If they would remake this game for the Nintendo Switch, I would buy it straight away. Playing it many times over when I had a Nintendo 64, I would enjoy playing it once again. The ending involves another Grunty fight with her in some sort of drill tank. I recommend this video game to people who enjoy Mario and Zelda open world adventure games.
