A Rare Opportunity: On Piñatas, Microsoft and More

Once a pillar of Nintendo's empire, Rare changed hands in 2002, joining Microsoft Game Studios' stable of developers. Its ethos has not changed, however.

Everything Free Radical has done to date has been a FPS except Second Sight. I would hardly say thats > than Rare. Rare have produced some of the best IP games to date. Killer Instinct, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo, Conker, Blast Corps. They've put out alot of games in different Genre's all quite successful. I still feel Rare games belong on Nintendo Console's though. Their graphics and style always seem to be more suited to it's market. Viva Pinata looks like a great game but it hasn't much of a chance in the xbox market where most of its userbase is FPS and Racing games.
