Story: As Banjo the Bear and Kazooie the Bird, you must save Banjo's sister Tooty from the evil witch Gruntilda, who wants to take Tooty's cuteness and put it on herself.

Graphics: This game has some awesome graphics. Whereas in Mario 64 everything was solid colors, this game is very richly textured. These screens don't show the detail because they're compressed.

Sound:The sound is pretty good. The music in the main world is cool because it keeps the same melody, but as you go through the different parts of the world the instruments change according to the area you are in. They did this in DKR as well, but not as much.

Play control: Excellent. Lots of moves all easy to learn and do.

Play Value:This is a really fun game, and long too. There are tons of puzzles to solve. You must find 900 notes and 100 jigsaw pieces to finish the game. It doesn't have a lot of replay value, since it is so long, but it's fun the first time through.

Rating:E Everyone. Mild animated violence like Mario 64.

Summary: This is a really good game and I think it would have gotten game of the year if it hadn't been for Zelda.
