Banjo Pilot review

Whoa wait what? I have a blog? And I do reviews on it? Well hot damn better get to doing that then! To celebrate this return I've decided to spend the entire month of February reviewing GameBoy Advance racing games, starting off with probably the most storied of the bunch.

Story-N/A: Much like Sonic and Allstars Racing Transformed (And most racing games in general), Banjo Pilot doesn't have a story. What it does have is a STORIED backstory (heh heh) relating to business deals and trade offs.

It all started back in the 90s, when the Super NES had launched. Nintendo was competing with Sega to show off the graphical abilities of their consoles. In order to do this, Nintendo took a big risk by buying out a little known company called Rareware. Rareware developed a game called Donkey Kong Country, which used new 3D rendering technology to make an amazing looking game. Rareware went on to become one of Nintendo's most popular 2nd party developers.
