Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie are two of the best games for N64 and pioneers of the 3D platformer genre. Some people even argue that Banjo Kazooie is better than Super Mario 64, though that’s open to debate.

Jolly Roger’s Lagoon is the fourth level of Banjo Tooie and is a tourist resort that’s fun for all the family. Mayor of Jolly Roger’s Lagoon is, of course, Jolly Roger, a flambouyant character whose friend has gone missing. It’s up to Banjo and Kazooie to find her.

Jolly Roger’s Lagoon is  a beautiful level with excellent music and some really funny characters. It’s also fairly difficult but never frustratingly so. This level–and Banjo Tooie in general–should remind us all of how amazing video game developer Rare were in their heyday.
