Drawing comparisons to the much loved classic Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie was a platform title developed for the Nintendo 64 by the iconic games studio Rare. 

Controls are slick and fluid, and on a technical level the game never skips a beat!

Swapping a moustached plumber for an enterprising bear with a bird in his backpack, Banjo-Kazooie set out to capitalise on the building popularity of the platformer genre, and boy did it succeed.... 

Gameplay involves navigating around creatively designed levels in hunt of honey comb pieces. Varied landscapes, intelligent enemies and ruthless bosses keep the player entertained, and there is unique music throughout. Controls are slick and fluid, and on a technical level the game never skips a beat, despite having some of the most impressive graphics of the generation.

Despite the overwhelming success of this title, it has had a mixed legacy. Banjo Tooie for the Nintendo 64 was a worthy successor, but the more recent Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts was frankly confusing, and angered fans of the franchise. Nevertheless, check out the original for groundbreaking platforming and endless fun, and cross your fingers that one day the franchise will return to its roots...
