i hate the whole vehicle thing in this game. seems very "non-banjo"....i might just re-buy and re-play the first on XBLA instead. seem to be the better option for me.

This is crazy... About Banjo 3, I think you shoud give it a try. Re-buy the original is a great deal of course, but you see... despite the vehicles, Banjo 3 is not a racing game or something, is a new Banjo with innovations.

Looks kinda average to me. The only platformer I ever loved was Klonoa though, and I guess the old Mario games (though I'm not crazy about the series like some).

The style is absolutely charming! But I still have by doubts on the vehicles, platforming with the vehicles(jumping,climbing etc) still looks a bit clunky. I can't really explain it but it just feels...awkward. You're constantly bumping into other objects and vehicles(police cars) and overall it just feels unnatural.

But the game still has alot of development time and hopefully they'll fix it. Or maybe it's just me, maybe i'll try it and it turns out to play just fine ;P lol

Why can't the series progress without people moaning about the vehicles. Fer christ sake, they did so many things different between each Mario game and still the games arent bad at all.

just my opinion dude. and for your information, i didnt like mario games once they stopped being 2D...same goes for sonic. im a purist when it comes to series i like. its the reason i hate the direction resident evil went with 4 and now 5. they may as well call it something else for all i care. cos it certainly isnt resident evil anymore.

i felt it lost its identity, and it was around that time when mario started to get a voice. and that was just wrong in so many ways imo

You'd be far better off embracing change instead of rejecting everything that loses its "essence", whatever that is. I loved the original Banjo, but it wouldn't make sense to replicate the exact same formula this time.

And, by the way, there's far more to the essence of the original BK than just the platforming. The vehicles, seem to replicate the exact same abilities Kazooie had plus lots more. There is a wicked amount of possibilities here.

I've gone from hating this idea, to playing the Spore demo, to looking forward to this. Never have been entirely sure about Rare's design ethic (always seemed a bit clunky, kind of like how Duplo was to Lego, if you know what I mean) but it's colourful at least, if rather all over the place.

Mario had a voice ever since the cartoons and movie back in NES/Super NES days

Also you can get Mario 64 on the Wii if you just download it from their market system

I will go for LBP before i go for this.

But it's turned out better than i thought. The IGN walkthrough was so frickign confusing. There are so many things that linmk and connect, and you ahev to collect them... it sounded a bit cluttered.

Defintely a rent though.

So far, the opinions of the people I have read so far that have played this game have had mostly good things to say about this game. If the game is the same as previous iterations with added customizable contraptions then it is good enough to capture my interest.

I'm sure this game will be great and I'll buy it, but I'll go out on a limb and say 'Rare's art direction is getting more and more ridiculous with every game'. I don't think their art direction is intentional at all. I really believe that the artist are just mediocre, but maybe brilliant with vibrant coloring. As much as I want to hate those blocky a$$ characters, I can't because the $h!t looks so clean. I bought Viva Pinanta and only spent about 4 hours with the game, but I still embrace it as one of the so many great games of the Xbox360's library. Call me a sucker for pretty colors, I guess.

What's so disappointing about them? You really have to watch some videos to really appreciate its greatness. These screenshots don't do justice to how beautiful the game.

For those who complain about the art direction being awful, I simply don't get it, especially when there are lots of people saying the exact opposite. I guess Rare is just a "love it or hate it" kind of company. And there are still those who won't simply admit that Rare is coming back to shape after leaving Nintendo as well.
