EVERYONE loves a kart-racing game. Whether you're whizzing around a track by yourself or competing for the supreme champion of the world title with your mates, you can't go far wrong.
Banjo Pilot is of much the same concept, except you're racing with miniature airplanes.
Being airborne still has you powersliding around corners, crashing when you fly over rough parts of the track or obstacles and firing weapons you collect after hitting specific pick-ups scattered throughout each track.
The only difference is that you now have to manoeuvre your way through the skies, moving higher or lower to pick up weapons or avoid obstacles.
You can choose from different pilots from the Banjo Kazooie series, each with their own unique stories, and custom aircraft as well as a number of varying tracks with their own obstacles.
In multiplayer mode the battle races are extremely good fun; you can pull off belly rolls and impress your mates or just go all out and be the king of the skies.
Graphics are impressive, with nice detail in the racers and environments.
Audio is good, if a little repetitive, with a continuos soundtrack and some occasional voice samples.
The game boasts unmatched handheld air racing with fast, fluid gameplay and soaring, sweeping action.
