Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge (GBA) Review
Rare have gone a good job of getting the Nintendo64s Graphics onto the GBA, Although it may not be the same huge environments of the N64 versions how they have incorporated many of the three-dimensional worlds this two-dimensional, sprite-based GBA game. There are ladders to climb, ledges of different heights to jump to etc. Rare has converted some of the series more complex locations into minigames, and some of these minigames can be fun and some of them cant.
If youve ever played the N64 versions of this game then you will be pressed hard to find a difference. The Voice Samples and Noise the characters make are back for the portable version. And also you will find the music familiar it may not be the same but the hypo tunes and happy midis tones sound very Banjo-ish.
Banjo and Kazooie are separate characters, but they work together as a team. Together, they have all the moves which they had off the N64, and Like the N64 version they get introduced overtime. Also you dont have Kazooie to start with and once you get her back the amount of moves you have doubles. The moves a purchased from Bozzeye who also supplies you with tips and give you a tutorial. Also just like the N64 version you can get transformed it other animals by mumbo. I wont tell you the news ones you can find it out for yourself 😛
The entire quest could be completed in about 5 hours depending on how many items you pick up and how good you are at the game. Once youve finished there is not much else to do but to play some of the old minigames on the Arcade Machine. Come on Rare I expected something better then just the main game!
