It has been two years since Banjo the bear and Kazooie the breegull (a type of bird) defeated the nasty witch Gruntilda and imprisoned her under a huge green boulder. Banjo, Kazooie, and their friends Bottles and Mumbo Jumbo resumed living happy, carefree lives on Spiral Mountain. One night, as the four sit down at a table in Banjo's house to play cards, a huge rumbling noise comes from outside. The rumbling is actually Gruntilda's sisters: the tall and skinny Mingella, and the short and fat Blobbelda, who have come in their drilling machine to release Grunty from under the rock. Meanwhile, Mumbo Jumbo decides to go out and investigate. Mingella pulls out a magic book, utters a magic spell, and lifts the rock. Gruntilda emerges, but in a totally different condition than before - she decomposed into a skeleton!

As good as a green breegull!
1 January 2003 | by (S.C., USA) – See all my reviews

although many people don't agree with me, but Banjo-Tooie, Banjo-Kazooie's so called "Prequel" is not what it's says. it's the sequel to one of the best games of 1998. it's funny, too. this game has 14 Mini- Games!, and bosses like Klungo and Weldar! I recommend renting or buying this with your wallet full of $50!
