"..and a plot that almost makes sense."

:D ..I like the context- driven approach to the review, the focus on describing what actually takes place in the game, rather than resting on overworked tropes. And the way you don't mistake gameplay flow for story- progression. So after reading every paragraph at least twice, I've learnt lots of useful things about Bajo Kazooie. But, uh, yeah, you need to write out full sentences ;)

"violently contrasting a local which is otherwise brimming with joy. Plotted amongst the lower-lying fields of flowers and stretches of grass is the colorful home of our protagonist. Meet Banjo, a heroic bear"

I mean - this comes from someone who tends to fall in love with meta- imagery, puns, and sentences passing into new sentences to disrupt the usual meaning of the words, and so on. But this is too much. :p
