Inside Rare's Never Before Seen Museum: From Jetpac To Perfect Dark

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Most gamers know Rare for its work on such classic Nintendo games as Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark, though the company's history goes back further than the SNES and Nintendo 64. It was founded in 1982 by brothers Chris and Tim Stamper, and was originally known as Ultimate Play the Game, where it released titles for the deceased ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. (Conker: Live & Reloaded, Culture, GameCube, Perfect Dark Zero, Rare, Retro, Viva Pinata, Viva PiƱata: Trouble in Paradise, Xbox, Xbox 360)

So sad to see such a talented company go to waste and now are producing nothing but crap.

Hey M$ if your not gonna use Rare then sell them to someone who will.

On the positive side, Kinect Sports sold 3 million copies. Just saying.

I agree with you but the games rare made were not really big sellers on the xbox or 360 because of the fan base on the 360 but now it has kinect and opened the dpor to everyone they should bring out some new games like banjo Viva Pinata blinx ect and i think they would sell better now the 360 is seen as a all round console. I think ms will use rare alot more next gen to help kick start the next xbox with the family side.

I agree its so sad that we will probably never get a great game from them again under microsoft.

Well, I have played Kinect Sports: Season Two, and think it's great. But obviously, it won't appeal to those who only associate Rare with its past.

ya i played the kinect game it was pretty fun but Rare's past is what made them so great why shy away from that but then again how many people who made those great games still work for them.

they completly ruined the banjo kazooie franchise with the nuts and bolts game. the e3 video had all the orginial elements to the older games, everything was perfect........until they next generation rared it and decided to take the series into a dark and self destructive path. i loved rare as a kid, but i hate them now. i think the only thing i liked from them since conkers bad fur day was perfect dark HD.

Never played that title and was considering it...the Banjo game on 360. That's a shame.
