GameRevolution: "Despite a few rough spots, Nuts and Bolts is a great adventure game that manages to mix the best elements of the Banjo and Kazooie mythos with a fresh take on the series. It's not a game that you can just pick up and play, but for those willing to make the time investment, Nuts and Bolts provides a very rewarding single-player experience. Not to mention, it's also a good value for the money. At $40 for a new copy of the game, playing through Nuts and Bolts is likely to cost most players about a dollar an hour. Now, if only Rare would get around to updating Goldeneye, I'd be in heaven."
