It's been nearly a decade since the odd couple of Banjo and Kazooie graced a major platform. Rare's platformers were a highlight of the Nintendo 64 era and were instrumental in catapulting the British development studio into household name status. Since that time, the developer has traded in potty-mouthed squirrels, the adventures of red-headed government agents, and cultivating Mexican party staples. However, the bear and bird that were so popular on N64 haven't seen a true resurrection until now. With Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Rare re-imagines the duo in an open-world title focused on creating and perfecting vehicles. It's not "Banjo-Threeie" by any stretch, but anyone who pines to build and tweak should have a good time, in spite of the downright clunky gameplay mechanics.
