A ridiculously generous and thoughtfully presented compilation packed with bona fide classics and obscure gems.
Rare Replay is an incredible package. Its presentation is charming, the extras are amazing, and so many of the games included here are still a blast to play. Whether it's your first time through or you're revisiting decades later, Rare's journey through the past 30 years of video game history is a fascinating one, and Rare Replay does an incredible job of capturing the essence of what makes the studio's work so unique in our medium.
Rare Replay is an incredibly high-value retro compilation, which adds to its impressive (but sadly not exhaustive) line-up of classics with new ways to play and interesting bonus content.
A rare chance to celebrate a developer's work through three whole decades, and even if some classics are missing what's left still represents a laudable achievement in gaming.
You'd be hard-pressed to not uncover something you enjoy in this nostalgia-laden package
Rare Replay is a massive collection of great games and interesting documentaries, but not everything is as good as it could have been.
Rare Replay is an essential piece of gaming history
The best bundle of games releases for an Xbox since The Orange Box. Some are all-time classics, Others are Grabbed By The Ghouies.
A fantastic package that charts the history of one of Britain's most important developers. It works both as a historical archive, and as a top-tier package of classic games. There really is something for everyone in this wonderfully crafted anthology.
Rare Replay is a new milestone for compilations. A great deal of care was put into the project, and 30 games is enough meat to ensure that everyone will really enjoy at least half of them. I sincerely hope this is the start of a revival of the classic Rare we know and love.
