"Nuts and Bolts looks amazing. Showdown Town feels like a real town with residents who roam across the whole place. Even though the gameplay may be repetitive by nature, the game has some great visuals. Voice-acting is reduced to the standard noises from the Banjo games…which is great for fans, not so much for newcomers. I'm personally glad they didn't add voice-acting as it could have been a disaster.
The game also has multiplayer which spruces things up a bit but won't exactly impress fans. I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I wanted to because of vehicle handling, it almost ruins the game for me but being a Banjo fan…I must accept it.
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts changes the formula of the originals to the point where its unrecognisable as a Banjo game. It retains the classic humour of the franchise and has some fun moments, but fans will be disappointed."
