The Lord of Games (LOG) has built many worlds to determine the rightful owner of Spiral Mountain. View larger.
In Nuts & Bolts, a showdown has been set. The Lord of the Games (LOG) has arranged a duel between Banjo and the evil witch Gruntilda, aka Grunty, to decide the rightful owner of Spiral Mountain. LOG, being the creator of all video games, has built a multitude of worlds to host the challenges. Banjo must complete all the worlds to win, while Grunty tirelessly tries to stop his efforts using every method she can muster.

Build it at Mumbo's Motors
The game is loaded with vehicle options to help Banjo pilot over land, water, and air. Parts for vehicles are widely diverse, ranging from your standard engines and wheels to egg guns, floaters, and other gadgets. The Mumbo's Motors workshop makes it easy to create new vehicles. You'll collect different parts by solving puzzles and exploring worlds. Vehicle parts include a wide variety of body panels, engines, wheels, wings, propellers, fuel, and weapons, plus lots of bizarre items like Mumbo Bombos, floaters, and the versatile sticky ball that allows you to create almost anything from a simple object. Once you've finished your ride, customize your creation with a paint job and a suitable name before Banjo takes the wheel and pilots it into action.

Customize, Customize, Customize--or Just Get Down to Business
LOG's worlds are littered with hidden secrets, reward puzzles, and over 100 contraption parts that deliver an almost limitless combination of vehicle possibilities. As you work through the worlds, you'll discover more and more ways to customize and improve your contraptions, creating a surprising level of user-generated content. But even if you don't fancy yourself the greatest inventor or a highly creative craftsman, you can still have countless hours of fun with Banjo-Kazooie's pre-built vehicles. With these at your fingertips you're ready to jump in and get started, and there are plenty more contraptions available for purchase throughout the adventure using in-game currency and musical notes.

Characters, Old and New
Banjo and his best friend, Kazooie, are ready to battle for their homeland and prevent Grunty from developing it into tower blocks and malls. Other familiar faces return as well, such as Bottles, Captain Blubber, and the Jinjos, along with a vibrant cast and crew of new friends and foes. Keep your eyes peeled for Grunty's minions--look out for Trophy Thomas, Piddles, and Grunty's menacing Gruntbots: they'll do anything to prevent Banjo's success.

Nuts & Bolts offers an engaging storyline, entertaining characters, and fun gameplay options. This game offers complete single-player and multiplayer experiences--tackle LOG's worlds on your own, or play with your friends in competitive and cooperative challenges. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for Xbox 360 is a enjoyable, challenging game that appeals to people of all ages and types.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts delivers loads of customization options, interesting characters (old and new), and plenty of fun, challenging gameplay.

From the Manufacturer

Build an Adventure of Mechanical Mayhem. Banjo and Kazooie are facing their greatest adventure yet, battling long-time nemesis Gruntilda for rightful ownership of Spiral Mountain. Use your wits and imagination to invent wild and wonderful contraptions so Banjo and Kazooie can crush this wicked witch. Rule the road, sky and water in the land of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts!


Famed game developer Rare Ltd. is reviving one of its most beloved and successful franchises exclusively on Xbox 360® with the third installment of the Banjo-Kazooie series. Banjo-Kazooie®: Nuts & Bolts embraces new and old fans alike, as the famous bear and bird duo return in stunning high definition for a unique adventure of epic proportions. The Lord of the Games (aka LOG) is tired of the petty squabbling between Banjo and the evil witch Gruntilda (aka Grunty) over the years, and has arranged a showdown to decide the rightful owner of Spiral Mountain. Claiming to have created every video game ever made, LOG has built the game worlds in which the contest’s challenges take place. Banjo must complete LOG’s challenges to win, while Grunty tries to stop him using every method her devious mind can muster.

Throughout your adventure, create your own abilities by building vehicles for Banjo to pilot over land, water, and air. Vehicle parts, which range from simple devices such as engines and wheels to more unusual equipment such as springs and egg guns, are earned and collected throughout the game. Use your imagination to combine parts in any order to create whatever vehicle you choose. LOG's challenges have one goal, but your choice of vehicle and tactics will determine how you get there. By exploring worlds and solving puzzles, you will be rewarded with more advanced and diverse vehicle parts in your quest to defeat Grunty once and for all.

With the power of Xbox 360® and Xbox LIVE®, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts brings an entirely new experience to the console and takes the franchise to a whole new level of enjoyment. High-definition graphics, user-created content, and online gameplay are just three of the many advances people of all ages and skill levels will discover as they embark on their adventure.


Adventure and imagination: If you can imagine it, you can build it in the Mumbo's Motors easy-to-use workshop. Then put your creation to the test as you take on Grunty in your quest for Spiral Mountain. Unlike other games, where you progressively pick up new skills or abilities at points pre-determined by the game’s creator, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts puts the power of improving Banjo's abilities into your hands as you build vehicles that allow Banjo to progress through the game. Vehicle parts include a wide variety of body panels, engines, wheels, wings, propellers, fuel, and weapons, plus many more weird and wonderful gadgets such as floaters, Mumbo Bombos, and the versatile sticky ball, from which you can design and create anything from a simple object-carrying truck to a space-age flying saucer. Once you've designed your creation, give it the finishing touch by painting it and choosing a suitable name before Banjo jumps in and pilots it into action.

Customizable experience: With more than 100 contraption parts and unlimited combinations possible, no two players will have the same experience in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. By exploring the vast game worlds, discovering hidden secrets, and solving puzzles to win rewards, you will continually find more and more ways to customize and improve your contraptions, creating an unprecedented level of user-generated content for a 3-D platform adventure game.

Fun right out of the box: Don't worry if you aren’t the world’s greatest inventor or want to skip the workshop and get straight to the action, because Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts comes with a fully loaded experience right out of the box. Pre-built vehicles are included so you can jump right in and get started, with many more contraptions available for purchase throughout the adventure using the in-game currency system of musical notes.

Engaging storyline and entertaining characters: Two of Rare's most beloved characters return from retirement, making their debut on Xbox 360. To win the deed to their homeland and prevent the evil witch Gruntilda from developing it into tower blocks and malls, Banjo and his best friend Kazooie battle over land, sea, and air against their longtime rival. Familiar faces such as Mumbo Jumbo, Bottles, Captain Blubber, and the Jinjos are also back to lend a hand, along with an equally colorful cast of new friends and foes. Look out for Trophy Thomas, Piddles, Lord of the Games, and Grunty's mechanically menacing army of Gruntbots.

Enjoy alone or with friends: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts offers complete single-player and multiplayer experiences. Play through the adventure alone in the single-player campaign, or play with friends in competitive challenges on your own or in teams.

Fun for everyone: Xbox 360 is the home to the best entertainment experiences for everyone. With Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Xbox 360 continues to build its impressive lineup of content that appeals to people of all ages and types.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Extreme Makeover Gone Wrong June 1, 2011
By John
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
"Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts" was highly anticipated by Banjo fans after a long hiatus for the series. The two N64 games rank among the best titles on the system, containing hours of exploration and platforming fun alongside mystifying secrets and Rare's legendary sense of twisted humor. When a new Banjo game for the 360 was announced, fans were overjoyed by the idea that they would be in control of the Bear and Bird yet again. However, many turned skeptical when it was revealed that the platforming and exploration was to be replaced with vehicle building. Now that Nuts and Bolts is finally here, does it live up to the high standard set by Kazooie and Tooie despite the changes?

"Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts" takes place eight years after Banjo-Tooie. The bear and bird duo have completely let themselves go, spending their retirement lazing around their home in Spiral Mountain playing video games and stuffing their now chubby faces. Gruntilda the witch has also seen better days. Left as a disembodied skull after the final battle of Tooie, she somehow manages to bounce her way into Spiral Mountain for a final attempt at revenge. She challenges the washed up heroes to a rather pathetic battle, but before anything can happen, a computer with a cape called L.O.G., the self-proclaimed Lord of Games, appears to pause the action. He restores the bear and bird to their former fit glory and gives Grunty a mechanical body, offering each side a vehicle and a chance to settle the score once and for all in Show Down town.

The main storyline is fine for what it is, but the execution of the premise is disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not What You Might Think November 19, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is somewhat fun, but.... it's not what you might expect from a BK game. The game is basically one challenge after another to win Jiggys and trophies. Unfortunately, but you might like this, most of the challenges are timed races. I was looking forward to kicking back, exploring worlds and finding Jiggys, Notes and Jingos, not having to beat certain times to win Jiggys. The leisure is gone...

Even this might not be so bad, except building and choosing the correct vehicles is confusing and the interface is very confusing with different ways to select and build vehicles. The collection of Acts is disjointed and the constant back and forth is frustrating. Expect to see the puzzle loading screen A LOT as you move back and forth between interfaces.

And one last thing, which others have mentioned, is the text. This game has TONS of reading and the script is very small and sometimes, scrolls automatically and quickly before you can read what was displayed. I have a huge tv and it's very very difficult to read and quite maddening. This piece of the game is very poor.

I hate not giving this game 5 stars because I love the BK series and want to see more, but they missed the mark on this one. They should have stuck to the previous platform and just enhanced it with the vehicle aspect to make exploring the worlds more fun than just endless challenges and clunky confusing interfaces.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing... March 14, 2013
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I had never been so disappointed about a video game until I played this so called Banjo-Kazooie game... When I saw the screenshots I was extremely excited that my favorite series of all time was coming back and it looked amazing! Being such a fan of the first two (which I still play) I was expecting something that would blow me away. I was so excited to play it I ignored any hint of the fact you build vehicles in the game, and ignored my younger cousin's hint at what kind of game it was. I eagerly started and was so amazed... Then the vehicles came. My heart sank, everything I had hoped for... Was shattered. Rare took out my heart squeezed it as hard as they could, threw it on the ground and stomped on it till nothing was left. I was so angry with this game, and in such disbelief, that I attempted to keep playing and give it a chance. As I played on, it was extremely frustrating with the sphere missions and the levels were extremely bland. No characters stuck to me like the first two did, I don't even remember any of them but Banjo and Kazooie. I finally decided to stop torturing myself and stopped playing the game altogether, and I have decided to never touch this game again. Rare could have done something great with this but instead made a pretty decent concept and put it in the Banjo Kazooie universe which is the extreme mistake they made. If you like building, racing, and just letting your creativity shine and are not a B and K fanboy, look no further. B and K fans, or platformer fans... Look away and never come back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money August 30, 2011
By John
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
There is a good reason why this game costs now only $11 dollars while other decent Xbox360 titles usually cost over $40. Heck, even old Playstation2 games cost more at around $19.99. This particular game is highly flawed and boring.

The only thing it will be able to impress you with is the graphics. They are not too shabby but graphics cannot save a game from an incredibly boring plot that is untrue to the Banjo-Kazooie franchise.

When it comes to Nuts & Bolts, there is something for Banjo-Kazooie fans and non-fans alike to hate about this game.

1) It is IMPOSSIBLE TO READ THE TEXT. It is way too small, and I play on a pretty big television, and I have perfect 20/20 vision thanks to my glasses. This wouldn't be too much of a problem if it wasn't so necessary for you to read the text. See, the characters speak a sort of cartoonish gibberish. If you cannot read the text, tough luck. There is no option to make the captions and text larger. You will not know what to do, and you will have to resort to going on the internet every single time instructions, that you cannot read, come up.

2) It is nothing like a Banjo-Kazooie game. I feel like I was lied to when I started to play this game. It lacks the fun, zany nature of the first game. The jokes seem misplaced and awkward. Situations in the game also seem more awkward than the last, and humorous situations just seem forced on you. The music is calm, serene and lacks the unique quality of the old Banjo-Kazooie games. It just isn't fun like the old games, and the characters themselves are extremely limited in what they can do. So you have to be exclusively dependent on your vehicles to do anything.

3) There is no diversity in what you do.
