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.

If it ain't broke... Modify It !!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I chose N64 just because playing it all those years ago really was amazing it was a beautiful game for its day.

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.

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

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.

Looking for people to join me in an epic Minecraft build once again. Its in creative, so if you are interested, message me for details.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

The 64 was highly annoying to use.
I finished the game when I was 5 with N64 controller.

Wow! I'm really surprised it's 50/50! No offense to the n64 but I didn't think it would be so close!

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.

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..

I prefer this game to the X-Box 360 mainly because my N64 controllers are broken

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.

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.

N64 for nostalgia, original game without anything being removed and knowing the controls by heart already.
