4) Vandal Hearts

Love Skies of Arcadia, played through it on both the Dreamcast and GameCube. Would love an HD re-release.

A missed opportunity to troll Rare!?!

TheCommentator1229d ago

Rare has been doing alternative stuff since Nuts and Bolts like the Kinect Sports series. Kameo was a great game and the avatar system was designed by them too. Rare has new games coming and is updating the avatar system for XB1 as well. They're not exactly failing.

Oh I absolutely agree, I think they did a good job on KS and would go as far as to say N&B and VP are among their very best games ever.

It's just articles like this are almost always, unfairly, used to troll them.

Nah, Rare have had a rough ride these past few years. As you have already said, both Nuts and Bolts, and Viva Pinata were both great games. I think a subtle grudge has been held against them ever since they left Nintendo for Microsoft.

Lots of mistakes since last gen, starting with no Dreamcast 2, moving forward to Konami's bull. Hopefully next gen shines.
