So this is a game that I have zero experience with, and until recently never owned. I've read mixed things about the game, but in my quest to own every game with the Rare logo on it, I had to have it. So this brings me to a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon a sealed copy of the game at a swap meet. Its pretty beat up and has a hole gnawed in the bottom(see photo below), but it was $10 and I had to have it. So my question to you all, is it worth opening? Do I open it and play it, or leaved it sealed (mostly) and wait til I find a loose copy? Feel free to talk about the games as well, and not just my predicament. Thanks!
Alright then! Looks like I will be opening it up! I am thinking about filming a "lets play" of me going through it for the first time. Perhaps having a fresh and new view of it will be intriguing to some!
I'd enjoy watching one - I haven't played it before, either (just on an emulator on my phone, which just doesn't work well with touch controls). I search for a cartridge of it every time I find a new game store. I suppose I could just look on eBay...

I've played it. It's fun for what it is, and it's as close to a Banjo-Threeie as we've ever gotten.
But I will say it was too short. Yeah, it wasn't gonna be as big as its console brothers, but I expected it to be at least slightly longer. Oh well, I'm still happy I played it. I just hope it gets a rerelease or a remake.
I'm also aware of a ROM hack in the works that maes what's essentially an N64 version of the game. Sounds neat, but given how those things turn out, only time will tell if it happens.
I'd certainly love to see the Grunty's Revenge remake finished. It's a charming little game, lots of great music (really like Cliff Farm and Spiller's Harbor's themes!) Jamie Hughes is pretty underrated as a composer; could hardly tell it wasn't Grant. It's kinda like a bite-sized Banjo-Kazooie in a lot of ways.
