IGN’s published the first review of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, giving the bird-bear reboot 8.3/10.

Summing up:

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts is a game that never stopped being fun for me. It’s an odd duck that doesn’t fit into any conventional game genres and probably isn’t right for everybody. Despite its friendly appearance, Nuts & Bolts isn’t exactly easy to pick up and play and might be over the head of some small children. There’s a lot of depth here and the vehicle creation tools allow you to flex your mind and your fingers at the same time. This is a great change of pace from the usual Xbox 360 fare and a game that will offer a lot of fun to those willing to invest some time in it.

The video review’s after the break. Game’s out later this month.
