Least Favorite Level
 
My least was Jolly Roger's Lagoon. Grunty Industries is a close second though. I just hated going through the whole level tapping X. I also don't like the boss here (Lord Woo Fak Fak).

You don't need to tap the button, you can just hold it.

I dislike Cloud Cuckoland the most. It feels like somebody made a joke when they came up with the levels, and nobody understood that it was a joke. I've always hated it for the lack of more warp pads which combined with the confusing layout, makes the level a maze.
They should've made something more serious as the last level. Like in Banjo-Kazooie. Click Clock Woods was a masterpiece.

To be honest, I like every level in Banjo-Tooie. Every one has good things that make me like them!

BigFellaJake 05-01-2009 11:27 PM

Except for the boss fight I didn't really enjoy witchyland? that much. There wasn't enough things for me to do to keep occupied. And I agree with you StarMud about ClickClock woods being a masterpiece of a level, especially the music to it aswell

I really, really, REALLY HATE GRUNTY INDUSTRIES!!! IS S**T!

Grunty Industries
 
Definetely Grunty Industries. Very un-Banjo-Kazooie like. Great game altogether though.

You realize there is a way to swim faster? Not to mention Lord Woo Fak Fak is much easier with the submarine (infinite ammo)

Pixo 05-02-2009 02:16 PM

I know there's a way to swim faster in Banjo-Kazooie, not tooie.. and I used the submarine for him after the first few tries, it was a lot easier. I don't like the aiming that this game has with eggs.

To swim twice as fast you have to unlock it.
Go to Spiral Mountain, and Bill drill the boulder near banjos house that Roysten the goldfish is trapped under.
Then just jump in the water and you get double air and the ability to hold A and X to swim twice as fast.

Grunty Industries. It takes far, far too long to get anything accomplished in that level. I could have Cloud Cuckooland 100% completed by the time I was halfway through Grunty Industries.

Kakansho 05-03-2009 06:22 AM

I also hated Jolly Rogers Lagoon.

Underwater levels have never been my thing in video games, and the Lagoon was torture.

Jolly Roger's Lagoon

I'm changing my opinion. I have been playing through the game for the 1st time in 7 years and have just been playing through Jolly Roger's Lagoon. I have remembered just how annoying it is to control, to aim, to move. Just altogether annoyance. Clanker's Cavern was my least favourite world in Banjo-Kazooie, so it's probably just the whole swimming theme I don't like.

Actually, here's a list of best to worst in my opinion:

#1: Hailfire Peaks
#2: Witchyworld
#3: Cloud Cuckooland
#4: Glitter Gulch Mine
#5: Mayahem Temple
#6: Terrydactyland
#7: Grunty Industries
#8: Jolly Roger's Lagoon

I'd like to see what everyone thinks is the best-to-worst worlds in Banjo-Tooie?

Senate4242 05-03-2009 09:25 AM

Grunty Industries has been bad for me. I keep getting lost.

YoshiMiyamoto 05-05-2009 04:47 AM

Grunty Industries is by far the worst...an awful combination of confusing and annoying. I like a lot of the other levels, with my favorite being Hailfire Peaks.

Urgh, that reminds me of the level in Ecco the Dolphin called The Lagoon.
That level was torture.

I like Grunty Industries :(.

My least favourite is Glitter Gulch Mine.

Same for me. I think Terrydactyland and Grunty Industries are tied. Both of those places take way to long to get one jiggy.

allen t is on 05-10-2009 12:56 PM

def grunty industries because i still dont remember where to find the jamjars for the sticky boots

Seany Show 05-10-2009 01:11 PM

I absolutely hated it in Terrydactyland. That level seemed to just go on forever and kept going round in circles.

RinkXing 05-10-2009 02:49 PM

Grunty Industries, ugh.

I find the whole thing overly complicated to navigate and progress in, always have. You can tell from the word go that it's going to be hell after the whole 'getting into the building by train' thing.

cybenddragon 05-11-2009 04:35 AM

Wow... memories...
 
Where to start? I used to love this game, and I am playing thorugh it again for the first time in about.... 4 years? Haven't been able to beat it again yet because of staying at my friend's for 4 days but.... I think my least favorite was Grunty Industries. That and Cloud Cuckooloand were the only ones I never had the paitence to 100%. My opinoin from best to worst were:

1. Mayhem Temple- I love the music, which is the only reason it beats #2. I played this level 1,000,000 times and enjoyed it everytime. The kickball is fun, and I love the lines when you sneak inside (look it up if you don't remember what you say to the guard.) Targetzan's a really fun boss.
2. Witchyworld- Large amount of variety, fun minigames, and 2 jiggies you have to come back for; which I enjoy. The boss is very unique. I also love the inferno... fire, yay.
3. Hailfire Peaks- Music= pure s*x. Also, the alien thing is one of the coolest part in any BK game ever. It's also huge, and I love it even though I used to get confused constantly.
4. Terrydactyland- I enjoyed becoming a dinosaur and the Terry fight was fun. You also make a caveman pee himself, c'mon guys, thats f***ing awesome.
5. Glitter Gulch Mine- I love the King Coal battle, but the underwater maze makes me mad, I also hate destroying the dynamite. Mary is probably my favorite mini-game, I love button presses (call me weird). I dislike the dynamite transformation. Great music.
6. Jolly Roger Lagoon- Besides Hailfire Peaks, I love this music the most. However I dislike water levels a little, the boss sucks, and it's confusing navigating in my opinoin. I enjoyed the mutants though.
7. Cloud Cuckooland- Well... it's a big level. Evil Mumboo's cool... and infuriatingly hard. It's confusing as s**t. I enjoy seeing Mary again I guess. Not my favorite level, to say the least.
8. Grunty Industries- *sobs* I'm okay. But this level... it's so bad. You have to use the train to get inside. There's multiple times you have to come back, which in itself isn't bad, but it's for the stupidest stuff. Weldar is a stupid boss, story wise and fighting wise. If I remember right (I haven't got to this level again yet) it's huge, which just makes it that much worse. I do not feel rewarded for playing this level like I do most BK levels. Worst level in both games.

I probably gave far too much information with this post, but whatever, this is why I think what I do, and if you have a differing opinoin, that's great. Just don't be an arse about it.

exit9500 05-11-2009 10:30 PM

I'll go with a tie between Grunty Industries and Witchyworld.

Agent CH 05-12-2009 02:25 AM

Grunty Industries. Way too complicated to navigate, the hard-to-locate security cameras that respawn soon anyway, and the FPS area was irritating. Normally I like factory levels, but in this case I'm making an exception.

mjc0961 05-13-2009 12:02 AM

I've only gotten up to Dinosaur Land (screw trying to spell the actual name :p ) and so far I hate it the most. I wandered around for about an hour yesterday and only managed to get 2/3rds of a Jiggy (helping the dino family) and the spring shoe move. I don't want to go back to that hellhole, so I'm trying to mine whatever jiggies I can out of earlier levels instead.

EDIT: Hailfire Peaks just took an amazing lead. I especially hate the fire side. Annoying hands coming out of the wall, the fire rocks being launched from the sky, the other fire rock launching dudes, and those annoying as **** little dudes on the magic carpet laughing constantly. Ice side is less annoying, but the fire side... Damn. I hate that side.

SCA KAZUMA 05-19-2009 09:26 PM

Definitely Grunty Industries. It sucked. Too much going on for one level. The washing machine was by far the worst part of it. "I'm gonna shoot you with underpants that arc before they can even reach you! What now?" The powers that you learn, though, are pretty awesome. Like the super jump (Kazooie) and the claw clamber shoes. But they still don't make it worth the many tears I cried at how terrible the level was.

Professor Pie 05-20-2009 12:22 PM

Jolly Roger's Lagoon. While I liked the town area, the main underwater areas were pretty annoying. I'm not sure why, but I've always disliked underwater levels in platform games. Not even Tiptup could make me enjoy those bits.

They should've made something more serious as the last level. Like in Banjo-Kazooie. Click Clock Woods was a masterpiece.

But there were a few flight pads littered about and, considering you could fly to pretty much anywhere in the level, you didn't really need warp pads. Still, would've been nice to have both, I guess.

TheFalcon 05-25-2009 07:04 PM

grunty industries takes the cake. i've never liked "factory" levels in any game, they just bore me. but this level is just painful. i can't remember where any of the shit is and it takes FOREVER to progress through the level because you get lost or just have no clue what to do. that and just getting inside the place was a bitch because i completely forgot you had to use the train to get in and spent 20 mins figuring just that out. my time for this level is 1:38 without a single jiggy.

jolly roger's lagoon is a close 2nd least favorite. anything out of the water is fine, but since 2/3 of the level is underwater and i just HATE swimming in this game it really ruined it. plus it has a layout on par with grunty industries' confusing layout because everything looks the same.

WithTheDawn 05-26-2009 01:04 AM

Grunty Industries, of course. I'm glad I remembered how to do everything on it this time round...

Kailon791 05-26-2009 02:03 AM

Grunty Industries : ( whoever created that level needs to be drug out in the street and beaten down. bad layout, hard jiggies, hard terrain. all around fail!
