    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.

    A great collection for retro gamers and newcomers alike.
    Microsoft hit a raw nerve with a lot of people by mentioning Conker and then having it just be dlc for Project Spark. This feels like their apology note and it is a bloody good one.
    All the games run great and despite having to install a few separate they are all there and accessible. Had all the games been on disk it would have certainly warranted a 10/10 from me. Getting to play through Conker and Banjo Kazooie again alone is worth the £20 price tag. But you also get Battletoads (a great super difficult game you can easily throw hours and hours into) and a whole plethora of assorted Commodore era, n64 era and arcade era games. Hopefully this starts a trend with companies to give is more collection titles like this and Sega's ultimate mega drive collection for last gen.
