    Rare Replay is loaded with gems and classics that by and large have stood the test of time. Modern tweaks and goodies make it all the more worthwhile. It's the best value in gaming, and sets the bar for any compilation going forward.

    It's a great trip down memory lane, one that I bet will bring a lot of smiles to faces young and old.

    Rare Replay is a fantastic collection of great games, quality is very high and in many cases enhanced by graphical improvements. The section devoted to the ZX Spectrum has mainly historical value, but titles such as Knight Lore and Jetpac manage to surprise even today. The library Xbox 360 must be seen as a bonus and is seen more as an excuse to investigate the potential emulator Xbox One, really incredible. The absence of titles Nintendo is felt quite heavily and some choices, such as insert Killer Instinct Gold, are questionable, but at that price you should not miss this.

    Rare Replay is a well-done collection of titles and special features, and is almost as much of a no-brainer purchase for every Xbox One owner as Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
  6. Just as entertaining as playing some of the games is fast-forwarding through the progression of Rare’s work over a period of decades. It’s like watching the evolution of the medium itself.

    So, yeah, we've gotten very accustomed to these video-game walks down memory lane. But that doesn't keep this stroll from being a pleasant one.

    Rare Replay is a fantastic collection of games with titles such as Conkers Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark and Blast Corps. For me it runs perfectly I've had no problems with it and found it well worth the price. There are features like Rare Revealed which is basically documentary footage about the studios history and and some of their games development.

    Banjo-Kazooie, Battletoads, Killer Instinct, Perfect Dark y más, gracias a éste disco tienes acceso a 30 clásicos con mejoras para que pueda disfrutarse en pantallas con alta definición. Posibilidad de crear puntos de guardado, algunos port refinados a HD, configuración del joystick a gusto hacen de éste combo una excelente forma de conocer juegos de otras épocas.
    Sin lugar a dudas un exclusivo de One que vale la pena tener, sobretodo la nueva edición que inluye también Gears of War Ultimate Edition.

The main reason i bought this game was for the banjo series and Conkers bad fur day (which thankfully its the N64 version and not the Xbox version which i think was live and reloaded as I used to spend so much of my time as a kid playing these games.
    I have seen a lot of criticism for drop in frame rate but so far i have only experienced this on viva pinata with achievements or people signing into xbox but i have only really played a handful of games so far. Word of warning though, if you love your graphics in your games this one is not for you as it is the older games in all their glory and not remastered when they were all about their story modes but the story modes in the games are a hell of a lot better than most games these days (in my opinion). There is also a cool feature where you can set the screen to look like a old school TV plus other features like videos of behind the scenes to unlock. Also if you are and achievement hunter there is plenty for you to earn 10,000G if i remember correctly.
    For me the only two bad points is I was really hoping that online multiplayer would have been introduced into the older games as i would have loved to play battletoads with my friends online and i have been told that due to the difficulties it would not be possible to do so (even though old games like Golden Axe and streets of rage on the 360 done this). But the multiplayer is still available in local play. Also there are a couple of games i would have loved to be on this collection for example Goldeneye & Donkey Kong Country but the rights are owned by Nintendo which cant really be helped so i cant really complain about that.

    Overall for the price you pay for the collection it is well worth the money and all the games bring back awesome memories from my childhood.

    Absolutamente una compra obligada por su relación calidad-precio. Cierto que no incluyen mejoras gráficas pero por extras y cantidad de juegosAbsolutamente una compra obligada por su relación calidad-precio. Cierto que no incluyen mejoras gráficas pero por extras y cantidad de juegos nos puede alegrar muchísimas tardes. Es casi imposible que no encuentres alguno que te encante. El único defecto "importante" es lo mal integrado que está el juego en la interfaz del xbox, dejando algunos en la misma interfaz de xbox y otros solo accesibles dentro del propio juego. Expand
