Very Good

Fun, but ...

I was very exited about this one (I love customization and building stuff). As fun as it was to put things together and make vehicles I was extremely frustrated that I couldn't read the text. ALL dialogue is text (No voices) and the font so extremely small and blurry.

I spent some time with the game(About 4 levels), but I just couldn't take it any more. Having to guess what your goal is, not knowing what the heck the story is and having to rely on trial and error just to figure out what the parts are for (E.I. a propeller for a boat and a propeller for flight).

At one point I put together a nice boat/car hybrid, but when I took it for a spin my vehicle floated in the air because those where not boat motors, but helicopter propellers.

The game is by no means bad, but the horrible/unreadable text turns it into a frustrating experience.

Fuzzy Text

The game may have been fun, but I may never know. I do not have an HDTV, just a basic 32 inch TV with analog hookups. I would assume that if I had a nicer TV and could use the nicer XBox connections this would not have been a problem, but with my TV I could not read any of the text--and as with all Banjo games, there is a LOT of text to read since the characters don't speak English. So if you don't have a nice TV that uses the newer XBox hookups (and I am only assuming this would solve the problem) then you will likely get very frustrated. Too bad, too, because the game looked fun.

Banjo-Kazooie: N TS & Bolts, more like a waste of money, they made this game horrible compared to the last ones and the last ones where good, but this game made Banjo-Kazooie look like a pushover, this was a waste of my excitement, if you know what i mean and my 40 dollars that bought this terrible game, and this is final i would rather jump off the empire state building than play this dump!! And they wont even let me right N Ts which is dumb so i have to freaking write it like this N TS
