Summary

A great game for kids and adults

The Good

"Banjo-Kazooie" was and still is one of the best platform games around. It is much like "Super Mario 64" which makes it a classic. You have a lot of freedom; for example, you can walk, run, fly, swim, and jump just about anywhere. Great characters and great sound. Good graphics for Nintendo 64. I thought it was very enjoyable.

The Bad

There wasn't much I didn't like about this game, but one thing I didn't like about it was that it seemed, at times, to be too kid-oriented. Also some levels could be considered difficult.

The Bottom Line

A Rare treasure.
