Who likes Rare? I do! I love all their games, especially Perfect Dark Zero and Banjo-Kazooie. I'm really looking forward to Banjo-Kazooie 3, even though I haven't finished the first two games.

I thought Rare went out of business. I guess not.

Nope, I think Microsoft bought them.

Rare was my favourite game company, until they left nintendo...

On Nintendo 64 i had Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, Conkers Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong

I will never play a Rare game on Xbox because im a Nintendo fan, i also hate Playstation. :lol:

The only rare games I remember are DK Country, Killer Instinct and Battletoads. The first two were definitely cool. I was suprised they were able to port KI on the SNES at the time. And Battletoads was just impossible.

I used to like Rare when they made games like Goldeneye and Banjo Kazooie but since Donkey Kong 64 (awful game) their output has been poor. Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero are only average games and were originally both designed for the N64, then Xbox, and finally were released on the 360. I have high hopes for Banjo Kazooie Three and I hope they have a resurgence. Mircosoft spent a lot of money on them.

You know what they should really do? They should revive Killer Instinct and make it all 3-D realtime, not that shoddy 2-D sprites on 3-D background architecture. And bring back B. Orchid and her awesome gyro-kicks complete with LASAKEN.

This was the first game that made me realize I had problems with arthritis.

I loved Perfect Dark Zero too, and I'm looking forward to Banjo-Kazooie 3 too. Especially now that there are so few 3D (or 2D) platformers.

My problems with a lot of Rare's N64 games were the bad frame rates. I especially had trouble playing Banjo-Tooie (or however that's spelled!) as it kind of gave me a headache.

Unfortunately I didn't like Kameo or Viva Pinata. I expected to love both, but I just couldn't get into either one of them.

I loved Starfox Adventures though. That was one of my favorite games from the last generation. Seemed like a perfect melding of what they were doing with Banjo Kazooie with the 3D Zelda games, all wrapped up in fantastic graphics (that I think look much better than Kameo).

Best games for that system!
Also Donkey Kong Country was among one of the first video games I ever played, I remember I used to be able to beat it in roughly a half hour without dying once. Now its as if I lost my touch completely these days :lol:

Good grief, I don't think I was able to beat it at ALL. I like my games to be pretty easy :)

Donkey Kong Country is really hard.
