Bravo, Rare; this is what a collection should be – accessible, nostalgic, technically sound and packaged in such a way that it feels new and fun. Rare Replay has been an easy way to access ten backwards compatible titles at once, and a fantastic opportunity to let my son explore the games that kept me company or drove me insane when I was his age. If you have kids be warned, the more you try to explain why isometric games were amazing, the more ancient they will believe you are. Now I have get back to being a foul-mouthed squirrel, just as soon as I shoo these kids off my lawn."
