Rare Replay on Xbox One is a compilation of 30 of the developer’s titles in celebration of their 30th anniversary. In our review, we said, “Although there is nothing that will beat the nostalgia of blowing into your cartridge (did this actually help?) before inserting it into the console, Rare Replay creates a convenient one disc system for anyone looking to enjoy the games once again. The ports for Rare Replay are some of the best you will experience.” Check out the entire review right here.
