The makers of Goldeneye and Donkey Kong Country has an admirable selection of games, spanning all genres.
How can GoldenEye 007 Be overrated for not aging well? It was made for the N64 a console with limited hardware and frankly a controller designed for an octopus. GoldenEye 007 is highly influential game that paved the way for console FPS games.
There was a massive jump in complexity when you compare goldeneye to previous shooters. It deserves all the praise it gets for sure, especially when you consider how small the dev team was. I still feel like Goldeneye does a few things better than modern shooters, despite how much it has aged.
Golden Eye has objective-based level design. Few shooter focus on objective based gameplay. In Golden Eye-Esque shooter such as Perfect Dark, Nightfire and Timesplitters, missions would have more objectives on higher difficulty levels. To successfully beat the levels, you as the player had to manage your health and resources in addition to memorizing enemy placements.
How can they not have Conkers Bad Fur Day on there for being underrated. In my opinion it's the best game ever made by Rare.
I did not like the single player but multi-player was amazing. The capture the flag, capture the toxic bomb, steal dinosaur eggs, and robbing the bank mini games. These were all fun for so many hours.
Regardless....it should be ILLEGAL for how much Microsoft has shat on Rare.
MS has not done anything bad to Rare. They get free roam to do as they please. Just FYI, the Rare you knew wasnt the Rare MS bought. Those guys jumped ship before the buyout and formed Free Radical.
I actually really enjoyed kameo when it came out. Was a huge fan of the first xbox and the 360 (hated ps2 and 3). But man have ms messed up this gen.
Jet Force Gemini is very much my favorite single player rare game.
Put Rare Replay on Steam
Every single BR game is overwhelmingly overrated.
