Soo what do you guys think so far of the game? I started yesterday night and I must say that I'm overall very happy with what I've got. It runs very smooth, looks and sounds great (yes, I turned down the voices by 50%, but it's nice that way now)!
Yes, it isn't as fastly rewarding and polished as a game like Mario Odyssey, but as a indie game, I really like it. Especially since it's basically a love letter to B-K. I plan on not expanding anything till I reach the final boss, which was a suggestion on these forums when the game released. Also, manual camera mode all the way! I don't want the game to decide which path I take and turn the camera around to that path, so this is another big suggestion.
And man, does it look great on handheld mode! 630p, but it doesn't really matter on that screen. All hud things are crisp & clean and seem to be in 720p (handheld) / 1080p (docked), which brings back vibes from the XBLA remakes of Banjo-Kazooie & Banjo-Tooie.
I'm early in (Glitterglace Glacier) and heard some rather bad things about later worlds (and the game structure itself) and I already see what people mean. Playtonic needs to take inspiration of the most recent, big mainline 3D Mario once again and streamline / flesh out a lot of things (and make the worlds smaller, but more dense). Yes, that's not the AAA polished Banjo-Threeie we wanted, but I hope they takes measures to come much closer to this with their next project. There needs to be a revolution for the formula, definitely.
Xellos suggestions are really something I'd like Playtonic to at least consider / think about: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5554&start=20#p34764
Still I'm seeing how I like the game eventually, there's still much to do.
What are your impressions so far?
