Banjo and Kazooie, that bear and bird platforming pair from their beloved, eponymous game, are back inBanjo-Tooie. Their second adventure will take them through eight new worlds, full of hulking bosses, minigames, and the series' trademark goofy gameplay. … see full wiki
While this game introduces a lot more moves and mini games over the first game, I felt that the final battle in this game with Brunhilde was a lot easier to beat so I gave the other game slightly higher marks. This doesn't really diminish the fun in this game at all. You finally get to use the ice key and the special eggs from the first game however, the effect from these items is minimal and plays no part in helping you defeat the game.
Some of the mini-games get annoying with a lot of shooting type games. My favorite level is the mine because it takes the most thought to get all the keys in the level (you have to remember how miners tested for poison gas in a mine).
I wish that Nintendo would have made a follow-up to Super Mario 64 as good as what Rareware did with this game. I understand that Rare was purchased by Microsoft and a new Banjo Kazooie title will soon be available for X-Box. I look forward to this release with a great deal of anticipation.
