View Full Version : N64 or Xbox 360

Did you enjoy playing this game more on Xbox 360 or on the N64?

05-05-2010, 03:07 AM
I will always have a soft spot for the N64, but after playing the Xbox360 versions of this, Tooie, and Perfect Dark, there is really no way that I'll ever play the N64 versions again.

Xbox 360 because that's the only one I have played.

The N64 had its day. Today is not it, playing it on the Xbox360 was either more enjoyable or more memorable(perhaps because it was more recent). Regardless, I love my 360 controller and N64 controllers, while at the time very innovative, just aren't doing it for me anymore.

The 360 version is awesome don't get me wrong but you just can't beat the original.

05-26-2010, 05:36 PM
I vote for the original. It was very funny playing it that time. But Xbox's version is very goo too.

I hate how to activate Wonderwing on the 360, I'd often activate it by accident. My vote goes for the 64!

I completely agree! Whenever I'm about to do a Talon Trot but I just happen to be turning the camera at the exact same time, I burn up all of my Golden Feathers by mistake! This happened several times, first in Mad Monster Mansion where I needed them against the ghosts...and then against Grunty whenever she's throwing the green-swirly ball spell >_<

X360 simply for the reason that you don't lose all your notes when you die. I remember trying that seasons level (I forget the name) multiple times because I kept dying.

I adored playingthe game on the 64 but going back through it on 360 was amazing, It brought back so many memories :)

Gotta say I enjoyed it more on the N64, probably cause I was younger and found it much more challenging in those days.

Totally agree on this. When I got Banjo-Kazooie for the N64 back in the summer of 1998 I just freaked out over the graphics, animations and story-telling. It blew me away! The XBox version the was great, too - especially because of the new graphics and the leaderboards. Anyway, but what I really hated with the XBox version was that I couldn't skip the dialogues and always had to read the them. It really interrupted my play a lot.

I despise the N64 controller (yeah I know it was revolutionary for its time) so I much prefer the 360 version. I do enjoy how games like this are getting re-made with the HD treatment though. I hope they keep em coming.

06-18-2010, 02:12 PM
As much as i love the N64, I gotta go with the 360.

06-18-2010, 06:37 PM
It is a hard choice but I think I had more fun with the N64 because It was exclusife for the N64 and then Pooff Microsoft has taken over Rare and then you could doawnload the game on Marketplace.

Felt weird playing it on the 360, my vote goes for N64

06-24-2010, 03:15 AM

n64 version is alot better

07-03-2010, 03:22 AM
Xbox 360 version is better for the easier to use controller.
The 64 was highly annoying to use.

07-05-2010, 01:38 AM
360 because the 64s control sticks suck

07-11-2010, 11:08 PM
I completely agree with this

09-09-2010, 07:20 PM
360 because it looks amazing and controls are smooth

09-25-2010, 06:16 PM
Played on both systems but x has better controls

I will always have a soft spot for the N64, but after playing the Xbox360 versions of this, Tooie, and Perfect Dark, there is really no way that I'll ever play the N64 versions again.
Well I love that they have updated the graphics and everything but with Perfect dark I find that using the manual aim with the right stick kills it for me as it way too sensitivs, is there any way to change it so you use the left analogue instead???

10-04-2010, 03:20 PM
Just for nostalgias sake I've got to go with the N64 even if technically the 360 version is better as I just had a lot more fun and found it to feel so much bigger when I was younger.

10-14-2010, 01:20 PM
I just love the game, but, as I need to vote in one of the 2, N64

11-09-2010, 03:23 PM
N64 back when it was new

12-01-2010, 01:18 PM
N64 for nostalgia.

12-04-2010, 04:15 PM
exactly. im still waiting for goldeneye to migrate over to xbox.

02-12-2011, 09:13 PM
I have to go with the N64 for my childhood, but the 360's controls and graphics are a lot better, but that will never replace the N64.

02-13-2011, 02:23 AM
I'm gonna have to go with the N64. The graphics are cleaned up a bit on xbox but when i was playing this on the N64 the graphics were the best thing i'd ever seen. Its pretty close though, i do prefer the xbox controls with the exeption of the golden feather move, i use the by mistake all the time, its kind of a pain but the the feathers arent too hard to get again.


04-24-2011, 03:40 AM
The initial impact the game had when i first played it on the N64 all those years ago beats out playing this on the 360. That being said, the graphics tune up was a nice addition.

05-11-2011, 11:35 PM
if they took their time like what they did with Perfect Dark, it wouldn't be that hard to choose.

I choose XBox 360 partly because I never played or owned the original and partly that I dislike platformer for it's inconsiderable potty camera controls.

Xbox 360 is my second favorite console, defeating all save one.
Shame for the 360 today, because N64 happens to be #1.

Imma say N64, even though the controller was absolute crap... Originals always have a bigger impact than the remake.

08-13-2011, 01:35 AM
Gotta go with N64. This is one of my all time favorite games I remember playing on the N64. I'm glad they remade it in HD for XBLA, but originals are usually better.

08-19-2011, 01:28 AM
brilliant game better than the n64 purely for the fact the camera angle easier to move

08-23-2011, 11:04 AM
I will always have a soft spot for the N64, but after playing the Xbox360 versions of this, Tooie, and Perfect Dark, there is really no way that I'll ever play the N64 versions again.

Exactly how I feel. I like how they changed the notes so once you collect them they are no longer there. On N64 it only showed the "best" for each level.

08-31-2011, 07:50 PM
I still love the 64 but the only reason i still have a Banjo-Kazooie cartridge is for memories sake. I've tried to go back and 100% it but i cant.

11-15-2011, 02:08 AM
I chose N64 just because playing it all those years ago really was amazing it was a beautiful game for its day.

11-17-2011, 06:09 AM
Sure, the 360 controller is better.. but I won't judge based on that. Actually, I'm having as much fun playing it on the 360 right than I did on the N64. So My vote goes to the 64.

Edit: F**k, I voted for the 360.. so distracted sometimes.

11-20-2011, 11:04 PM
I would probably say N64 because as a kid i loved this game but could never beat it. Now that i beat it i dont know what to say

11-20-2011, 11:18 PM
Always vote for the original.
But its great on X too.

01-11-2012, 07:25 PM
I went for 360, as I don't like the N64 controller. My girlfriend chose the N64 version as she prefers the camera angle. Either way, a great game, which I treated her too today. Saves her cursing at Hexic instead haha.

01-21-2012, 08:09 AM
I'm gonna say both, the N64 version is what I grew up with and all the 360 version really is, is the same game with enhanced graphics. Of course that's not a bad thing as it's still Banjo Kazooie and BK games are, (with the exception of Nuts and Bolts) always awesome.

02-03-2012, 10:51 PM
I think the Xbox 360 version looks better (because it's in HD duh) but I like the feel of the game using a N64 controller. For some reason I like using the C-buttons better than the analog stick on the 360 controller.

02-21-2012, 12:54 PM
As much as I love my N64 I'll have to go with the 360, because you don't have to get all the notes in one go. And because I am an achievement whore :p

Though the Bottles Puzzle glitch on the 360 is a pain.

03-17-2012, 06:43 PM
Probably the N64 because I was 9.

But seriously I don't think there's any real difference between the two. Although I suppose it was cool to be able to actually get the ice key and a couple of the eggs.

03-28-2012, 10:31 PM
I choose the xbox version mainly because the N64 controller isn't that good. The N64 had great games and if you can choose to play these games with a proper controller with a graphic overhaul I'll prefer it.

05-27-2012, 08:40 AM

The 64 was highly annoying to use.

I finished the game when I was 5 with N64 controller.

05-27-2012, 08:58 AM
Wow! I'm really surprised it's 50/50! No offense to the n64 but I didn't think it would be so close!

05-30-2012, 06:13 PM
I first played this game on the Xbox 360, so my vote obviously goes to it.

I love both versions, but ultimately I prefer the N64 simply because the N64 controls became imprinted in my brain. When I was playing it on Xbox, I found myself attempting to press buttons that weren't there, or pressing buttons that changed on the 360 version.

10-05-2012, 10:51 PM
I go with the N64.. I think it's better that the notes and jinjos disappear after dying or exiting the level, makes it more challenging. Too easy on the xbox..

11-21-2012, 06:26 PM
I prefer this game to the X-Box 360 mainly because my N64 controllers are broken :(

11-21-2012, 06:30 PM
I join the necroing.

Xbox of course. I have no use for a n64.

12-27-2012, 04:55 AM
I preferred the Xbox 360 version because of the updated visuals, the controls feel tighter, the camera feels more precise (in my opinion), and now you can die in a level or leave that level without losing all your notes.

07-02-2013, 08:03 PM
had a great time playing this game but i seem to have got worse over time

07-03-2013, 01:29 AM
I've been watching a lot of speed runs on Twitch and I must say, the Xbox 360 version is my preferred version. Obviously, the graphics have been improved, but everything about it just seems better than the Nintendo 64 version.

08-11-2013, 01:21 AM
N64 for nostalgia, original game without anything being removed and knowing the controls by heart already.

08-11-2013, 02:53 PM
I enjoyed it more on the 64 but I never managed to figure out how to beat Grunty until the 360 version. I might go finish my 64 game now that I know how.

12-02-2013, 05:25 AM
xbox 360 for sure because you die or leave the level and you don't have to collect everything again in that level

The xbox 360 version has much better controls for banjo kazooie for sure.

Jusr for that N64 logo.
It was the best logo.
It's gone now.
