Yeah, and my Fiancee is a die hard banjo kazooie fanatic. So, I might end up getting this sooner rather than later.
It is a real shame though that the reviews point to various frame-rate issues and camera control problems existing. It really seems like that is something they could have ironed out, it seems like we are really past a lot of those problems in games (specifically camera control), but I guess issues persist in this game.
As mentioned above, Jim Sterling hated it 2/10. Polygon’s review wasn’t particularly favorable. Kotaku pointed to the weight of issues, technical and design wise ruin the fun.
There are some very positive reviews however. It seems like if you know what you are getting into, and ok with that, you will like the game.
