Is this actually any good though? Big fan of Rare games in general but I've heard mixed messages about it...

It's good and bad. On one hand, the game has tons of things to do and many of the classic game play ideas are the same, but the game is so mammoth in scope that it becomes almost overwhelming at times trying to figure out what to do next. Not to mention the side-project of building the machines which will likely turn some long-time Banjo fans off. I enjoyed the game, but nowhere near as much as the first Banjo Kazooie game. And if you haven't downloaded the XBLA version of it, you don't know what you're missing!
Plain old gamer :)
Ooh I am really tempted, I have lots of Playfunds too!
I know I wouldn't give it the attention it deserved though. Heck it's hard enough juggling family life with Resi 5 and MadWorld at the moment! haha

True dat, Resi 5 is swallowing up all my time at the moment. However, I do like supporting companies like Rare so I might pick this up - not that they will see much in the way of reward with it being sold at that low price!
April fools joke by any chance? lol
The game deserves to be bargain-bin.
Look at the opening cinema if you have the game... What is next to the 360 Kazooie is playing?! A cob-web ridden 64! (Which is against both MS and Nintendo compliance tests). Rare is still caught up in some legal limbo for it from both companies.

Well it's the best platformer this gen.
After Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.
I would gladly buy this but the text is too small in the demo for my tv. I have a 27" tv and I couldnt find an option to make the text bigger. seeing as how they dont talk....eh maybe Ill just buy it for the heck of it.

I think Ratchet and Galaxy are in the same boat as in they're both solid games in their franchises but they didn't bring anything new.
Banjo went in a whole new direction, helped evolve the genre, and did it extremely well. I'm not a Rare fan at all but they really did a great job with this one.
That's true regarding Ratchet & Clank not really bringing anything new to the table, but I felt like the Banjo game tried to do too much to differentiate itself from the previous two games. Still great fun though.
Galaxy was certainly something new even if it was a bit gimmicky. I liked the new Ratchet and Clank (and the short PSN sequel), but yea, it was nothing new. I never played Ratchet and Clank before. Are the previous titles in the series as fun? I have to admit I preferred the PSN one, Quest for Booty, due to its shorter length. I don't think I finished the other one because it was too long and got tiresome toward the end. I'd take Galaxy over both. Don't have a 360 to try Banjo though, unfortunately, but I didn't like the old Banjos anyway.
