Great memories of an excellent game
3 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Banjo-Kazooie was without a doubt one of THE best N64 games ever to be created, but sadly Nintendo's not making anymore Banjo games>:(. It's really a shame too because this was a fun game. Anyways the levels were fun to explore (Especially Freezy Peak or whatever it's called). The moves were creative and original and the animation, hoo boy. The animation in this game was a MAJOR improvement over some of the N64 games' animation. If they still sell Nintendo 64 games where you live and you have an N64, then make sure there's a copy of Banjo-Kazooie that's being sold because like they say: Chances like this don't come around often(Especially not anymore).

Overall a really great and addicting game that Nintendo should re-release on the Gamecube.
