Overview

Rare Replay is a collection of famous Rareware and (formerly) Ultimate Play the Game titles that spans 30 years of the studios existance. Each game in the compilation are from past platforms ranging from ZT Spectrum to the Xbox 360.

Every game in the collection from 1983 to 1994 can use CRT scanlines filter and a "Rewind" feature that allows the player to undo up to 10 seconds of gameplay. This feature was added to ease the difficulty of the games, however there are achievements for not using the "Rewind" feature.

Additionally, there are 16 "Snapshot Challenges" of mini-games base on segments of the 16 retro games, including the infamous Turbo Tunnel challenge called Turbo Tunnel Infinite.

Finally, players collect tickets to unlock video interviews and insight of Rare's studio in "Rare Reveal". This segment are rewards videos giving players and rare insight on the studio interworkings, including unfinished and never released games us as Conker's Other Bad Fur Day, The Fast and the Furriest, and more.

The noticable games absent from the collection are the Donkey Kong Country series and GoldenEye 007. This is due to licensing issues.
