Nintendo 64 Gives You a Wonderful Gaming Experience

Banjo and Kazooie

The Nintendo 64 brought about an evolution to the gaming world.  Before the N64, most games were two-dimensional side-scrollers or Isometric top-down perspectives.  Few companies were able to dominate the market like Rare, producer of various big Titles such as Donkey Kong Country, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, and a personal favorite, Banjo and Kazooie. Banjo and Kazooie is a 3-D platformer developed by Rare that came out in November of 2001, it’s protagonist is the Bear Banjo, who is assisted by his side-kick the Bird Kazooie. Together they must stop the evil witch Gruntilda from using her Machine to suck the life from the world.  I have played a multitude of video games in my life, few have been able to make the impression that this game has on me.  While the storyline isn’t winning any awards, the game more than makes up for it by being an amazingly fun 3-D platformer.  The level designs in both Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie are phenomenal. The trend with gaming today is to make these enormous worlds that are just so massive that there ends up being a lot of places that just end up being empty space, not Banjo and Kazooie. Nearly every area the player explores, they are rewarded with something to show for it such as one of several collectibles or even character upgrades such as new moves or new eggs for Kazooie to shoot.  The soundtrack for the game is a masterpiece in itself, each world has it’s own unique and catchy tune which changes as you explore the level; going underwater causes the track to drag on and muffle, making it sounds like the player is actually underwater. In conclusion, the Banjo Kazooie series is a wonderful collection of games with a lot of potential for exploration and just a generally pleasant experience.
