BK: Nuts and Bolts...

and Nuts & Bolts isn't called Banjo Threeie (or whatever stupid name they would have gone with). Though in N&B's case, I think it's less of a genre swap than most fans are willing to admit. The goals are largely the same, you simply have more freedom in how you pursue them.


I've gotta agree with this. I loved both Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie, but I also enjoyed Nuts and Bolts. Granted, the gameplay is obviously different... but it still has that same Banjo-Kazooie "spirit" that hooked me on the first two.

I think most of us would have loved to see a "Banjo-Threeie," but you shouldn't let that prevent you from playing one of the must original games this gen.

Give it a try. If you don't like it, fine. But at least give it a shot.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I haven't yet played N&B.


Yeah, I find it telling you that you're getting a great deal. It's better than any Banjo game. A true, unique, and imaginative game, which is rare these days.

Nuts and Bolts is very bad, it is nothing like any banjo kazooie game and has the worst driving mechanics ever

Glad I played a friends copy and didn't buy that

I didn't think N&B was a particularly good game. Not just because it wasn't what I was expecting (or wanting), but also because for a game based around physics I found it wanting. The game makes it so user friendly for almost anything to work, that once you have a decent bike/car/heli there's no incentive to make any more, unless you're really into that aspect of the game, which I know some people do love that sort of thing.

As much as I love The Saboteur, the driving was impossible for me to enjoy.

I believe that N&B is a good game. I do not believe it is better than BK and BT. I've played the demo, and I certainly didn't get that vibe. Granted, I haven't played the whole thing, but the general opinion of the interwebs seems to be the same.

Then play it and make your own judgement.
Here. free demo.

Now come back when you have an opinion about the game and not the price.
The price tells no-one nothing about anything.
