Banjo-Tooie - N64 - 2000

Banjo Kazooie was a great success so a sequel was pretty obvious. But I really didnít think that it would beat the Banjo Kazooie so much. The game goes straight into the ĎBag of sequels better than their firstsí along with The Dark Knight, Toy Story 2 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This game is epic.

Where to start. Oh yeah the story. The story takes place after you kick Gruntyís fat ass (Didnít you know you beat the villain at the end of Banjo-Kazooie?) The witch is under some rock while her minion Klungo, whoís a retarded, obese dinosaur with a speech problem (sorry I didnít tell you about him), is trying to get the fatty out. But seeming as heís too weak he canít do it. So whatís our favourite bear and bird doing? theyíre playing poker, kids game, remember Rare? Theyíre playing poker with The less annoying Bottles (youíll see later why) and the non-frostshocking shaman Mumbo. They donít know anything thatís going on outside. Suddenly out of nowhere, a giant drill comes crashing through a wall. The Drill opens up and out comes Gruntyís two sisters Mingella, a anorexic witch and Blobbelda, a even more obese witch. They are here to free Grunty from under the rock. They free her and revive her from under the rock and find out sheís just a skeleton. So sheís just going home now to try and steal Tooty again right? WRONG! She wants to get revenge on the Bear and bird for killing her, well I guess thatís kind of obvious. Mumbo goes outside because he heard something, but gets caught by Grunty the bitch, so the three hags go follow the shaman back to Banjos house. Mumbo tries to get them out and so Mumbo and Banjo leave the house leaving Bottles behind. The witch blows up the house. Wait, does this mean thatÖÖ Bottles is deadÖ? AWESOME! (this is what I meant by less annoying). So like the average hero game character that he is, he goes after her.

In Isles O Hags, Born and Raised, in spiral mountain where he spent most of his days. Banjo starts off at his destroyed house back in Spiral Mountain and just like before Bottles Ghost is the one to teach you the moves from the last game. Oh great, heís still here. You walk around Spiral Mountain finding the molehills and Bottles will tell you how to do it. This time you get nothing for the tutorial, so those who already know how to play can just get stuck right into the adventure. Thatís pretty good so people donít waste time and can actually do something. So you enter a cave where the drill got through to follow Grunty. The cave is enormous, why did the other two Witches waste all that time making a really big cave when they could of saved their sister? So you walk into the cave and, youíve guess it the exits close up. You donít suppose thereís a boss fight? You see Klungo in here because he got left behind because no-one loves him. Thatís right, you fight Klungo beating him however Iím not telling you. Wow, so much has happened already, can we move on? There something about some Jinjo King, A Jiggy Lord and Bottles wife and kids- WHOA!! What Ho wanted to go with Bottles?ÖÖ Please thatís move on.

Speaking of Jiggy lords.
Címon I had to, it was so obvious.

So, whatís the first level in this one like? Well actually itís a Mayan Themed place called Mayahem Temple. Kind of looks like Mumboís Mountain to be honest. So whatís there to do around here? Well, at first look you see musical notes, hooray! More collecting! And whatís great about the notes this time is that you donít have to collect them again when you die. They are automatically added to your notes total and youíll never have to collect them ever again. Along my trails some guy shouts over here and says to give me the notes, and I only see some dome-type-thing. Of course I go over to it, and I find at first Bottles in army clothing-wait isnít he dead? Then I found out it wasnít the ****er- phew. It was really his brother Jamjars- oh I get it Bottles, Jamjars hahaha thatís.. really not funny. Whatís next? Cookietin? Kettles? Frigid? ĎSighí. So what Jamjars does is, thatís right, teaches you new moves. Is teaching moves a family business or something? Ok he teaches me how to hang onto ledges, in songÖ Iím actually starting to prefer Bottles now. Enough I canít bare JarHead anymore. So I collect more musical notes and I find Mumboís Skull. So I can go turn into something right? RIGHT! But not from Mumbo this time, who is it though? Youíll find out later. So I go into Mumboís Skull and I find some retarded pink dildo jumping around in the skull. Apparently itís called a Glowbo. Never mind, so I find Mumbo upstairs to find that heís sleeping. What! Gruntyís planning on destroying the world and all Mumbo can do is sleep? So you speak to Mumbo and he can help out, but you have to give him a Glowbo. Whatís Mumbo going to do with a Dildo? UmÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖ. Pretend I never said that. So what can you do as Mumbo? Well Mumbo can do special things like levitating, summoning stuff, frostshock etc. So what to do with Mumbo? Well Mumbo can do very little in any stage. In fact he can do only one thing to do to help and thatís it. In this level Mumbo can SUMMON A GIANT INDESTRUCTABLE GOLDEN MAN! That can kick down a wallÖ thatís itís? Pointless. So going in one of the kicked down doors I find a tent and inside was, another shaman. Her name is Humba Wumba a stereotypical Indian. So what can she do? She can turn you into things, oh so sheís Mumboís replacement. With a help with a Glowbo she can do stuff, itís obvious what sheíd do what a dildo. Damn itís turning into a guide again, got to stop doing that.

One last thing that there is in the game. Multiplayer, thatís right multiplayer. I personally never thought this was going to happen. To be honest it is only good if you are playing against someone who has played this and is good. Otherwise if your me and your up against Mario Party Man then you wonít get much fun and youíll bugger off and play Mario Party. Thereís lots of stuff to do in multiplayer but itís all to do with the story mode. So the quiz is terrible for your friends but you always win. Multiplayer works itís just not good if the people youíre playing have never played this.


Almost done Mario Party Man Iíll play Mario Party in a minute. Christ. Compared to the first game itís brilliant. Unfortunately, multiplayer has itís downs here as only 4 Banjo fans could get the most out of it. BUY A N64, BUY BANJO-TOOIE NOW! Oh and get Jiggy with it afterwards

New Scoring system

+ A true classic
+ The Adventure mode is awesome
+ Plenty of things to do
+ Hilarious and witty storyline
- Multiplayer is only good with other Banjo Fans

Banjo Kazooie was a great success so a sequel was pretty obvious. But I really didn’t think that it would beat the Banjo Kazooie so much. The game goes straight into the ‘Bag of sequels better than their firsts’ along with The Dark Knight, Toy Story 2 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This game is epic.

banjo kajoiee is usually considered better, as is melee. if youre going with sequels which beat the original, then go for street fighter 2, civilization 2, quake 2.... toy story 2 I agree with, but at the end of the day both of them get 100% on rotten tomatoes so it matters not..

EDIT: one thing i would say about this game is that i love the graphics. similar to conker, they squeeze the most out of the hardware and hold oh so many memories

I never actually played this game. Banjo Kazooie was one of my favourite games for the N64, so I should probably play this game as soon as possible!

Very cool review!

This game is a long game! I wish I did finish though...when I had it at the time, It was a very great game when I was playing it. The mini-games were so fun!:)

I finished the game, and I don't recall it being that long nor really too hard. If anything I thought Banjo Kazooie was harder, but maybe that is because that was the one of the first real games of that collecting/puzzle/adventure style, so when Tooie came out I was more prepared for what to expect.
