Banjo-Tooie was as big and expansive as it was due to internal competition at Rare. The Banjo-Tooie and Donkey Kong 64 teams wanted to see who could make the bigger, more content rich game.

Donkey Kong 64 was definitely a top tier N64 game. I think I played Banjo Tooie once and never again. But I also wasn't able to finish Banjo Kazooie until after it was re released on Xbox 360.

Oddly enough I played the kazooie, Tooie and DK 64 when visiting other people. I never played through and beat Banjo-kazooie and Banjo-Tooie until the release of Rare Replay! I prefer Kazooie over Tooie. I found Tooie to be occasionally frustrating.

The original Banjo-Kazooie is one of my favorite and most re-playable go-to games. Banjo-Tooie did lose some of the magic in getting a little too big and complicated. This is even more evident in it's spiritual successor "Yooka-Laylee".
