    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.

    One of the best compilations exclusive to the Xbox One. It features 30 classic games dating from the early 80's to the mid -2000's. HighlightsOne of the best compilations exclusive to the Xbox One. It features 30 classic games dating from the early 80's to the mid -2000's. Highlights include both Perfect Darks, Conker's Bad Fur Day, three Banjo titles and Battletoads (NES/arcade ports). Other notables are two Viva Piñata games, Grabbed by Ghoulies, Killer Instinct Gold, Blast Corps. and Jet Force Gemini. The presentation is excellent, there are mini-challenges, behind-the-scenes videos, cheats and display options. Only downer is you have to install a few games. Overall, a top notch effort. I'd rate this with a 9 out of 10. Expand
