Rare Replay is a collection of 30 Rareware games. The collection is a $30 bundle and it is quite worth it. The collection spans across games from 1983 to 2008 (Jetpac to Viva Pinata). Though they had already collected over 1 billion dollars in revenue, the Rareware team had decided to merge with Microsoft. Before the purchase, Rareware games were obtaining ratings such as a 9.6/10 for Banjo Kazooie, 9.8/10 for Perfect Dark, and 9.9/10 for Conkers Bad Fur Day. After Microsoft bought Rareware, they made games that obtained lower ratings such as Perfect Dark Zero, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, and Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts. These games weren’t received as well, but Microsoft is still not giving up.

Rare Replay is full of nostalgia and a great buy for only $30.  If you were to pay a dollar for every hour, you would be paying more than $30. Though I don’t play the game all the time, I thoroughly enjoy it and continue to do so when I play it.

The full bundle has a variety of game types: most are 3-D platformers, but there are also 2-D side scrollers, gardening games, collectathons, first person shooters, and puzzle games. The graphics are the original N64 graphics, but this adds a nostalgic feel while playing it. The game also includes extra behind-the-scenes action such as how the characters were made, the development stages, and much more. Rare Replay is exclusive to the Xbox One and a must get.
