GCHD Writes: "Grading a title based on visuals, musical score, replay value and gameplay is easy enough to do - but providing a rating based solely on the experience alone is much more difficult. But this is where Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts excels. Not only is it enjoyable from start to finish, but more importantly, part of the fun is adapting to its ingenious system along the way. By attacking the standards set by many other titles in the genre, it manages to set itself apart. Nuts and Bolts isn't concerned with raising the bar – it's attempting to craft a new one altogether. And that takes some serious nuts and bolts."
