In fact, the majority of the first N64 games I bought were made by Rare (Perfect Dark, Banjo and Goldeneye). They had this charm about them, little features that just made them stand out from the bunch especially Banjo. It had this humour to it that made it so charming to play. I never got around to buying Banjo Tooie so, until now, I have never played the sequel to one of my favourite N64 games.
There is very little difference between Banjo Kazooie and Tooie. This would be a good thing for those that waited 2 years between the N64 release of Kazooie and the release of it's sequel. However, for many who have only played Kazooie on XBLA these few months between are not long enough to warrant a purchase of exactly the same game you played a few months back. It has, however, been a good few years since I last played Kazooie so this does not effect me so much..."
