It hasn't been long since RARE impressed us with the latest entry to the Viva Piñata series. The game was colourful and filled with things for you and your imagination to explore. Sadly though, it did not sell as many copies as certain other brain-dead games out there due to its kiddie exterior. However, true gamers knew the treasure hidden deep within the title. With Banjo Kazooie- Nuts'n'Bolts, Rare has decided to stick with this wacky yet colourful and creative formula. The key difference here is this title is part of a beloved franchise that fans have been waiting for since the last game hit shelves 8 years ago on the Nintendo 64. So it's fair to say expectation were high when it was announced, coupled with anxiety when it was shown to be a departure from the previous two entries where gameplay is concerned. Instead, choosing to mesh together parts of the previous games with the new ability to find parts and build whatever crazy vehicle you can come up with to get around the various levels. Has rare succeeded? The answer to that really depends on how willing you are to accept the new direction.
