Grabbed by the Ghoulies is still a fun game to play.

I played through Grabbed by the Ghoulies via Rare Replay. I found Ghoulies to be descent, solid graphic, music and art, with tedious, repetitive gameplay.

You forgot to mention Donkey Kong Country 1-3 remakes, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Sabre Wulf, Banjo-Pilot, It's Mr. Pants, Diddy Kong Racing DS, & Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise.

Yeah they aren't on Xbox platforms, but it's still worth mentioning all the projects they've produced since the acquisition.

Remember when Rare was a more respected developer in the industry than Naughty Dog?

you gotta thanks Microsoft for that!
When Microsoft bought them in 2002, I knew it wasn't going to end up well.

Rare who? U cant be serious.....?

No im not, but I loved all the classic rare games up till n64. Yooka Laylee filled a lovely hole which hasn't been seen from rare for years. A shame really.

I can agree they haven't been themselves, but they have forever cemented their legacy in gaming. They will most likely never be the same again.
