Anyone else picking this up? I didn't have much time to play last night, but I was quite impressed with the production values of this compilation. Rare could've easily just thrown together a bunch of roms and called it a day, but it looks like they actually spent some time in cleaning these up and presenting them.

I've played a decent amount of the games in the collection, but I started with Jetpac, which I had never played before. It was actually quite fun! I must admit that I turned on the "infinite lives" cheat and I'm so glad I did, otherwise I would've never made it through :P I don't feel too bad since it's a menu option, ha!

Anyways, it seems pretty cool, so if you have an Xbox One and like classic / Rare games, check it out!

I'd be all over this one if it came on a system I actually owned. :)

If it had Rare's licensed stuff (Goldeneye and the Donkey Kong Country games), it'd be absolute must buy.

Yeah, I really wish it had Goldeneye with local multiplayer like the old days! The only complaint I've ever had with that game is the framerate can get a little dodgy at times. I also said the same thing about Banjo-Tooie, but the Xbox Live port cleared that right up :D

I'm looking forward to playing Battletoads with the infinite lives cheat on and using the replay feature so I can actually beat it :P I don't have time anymore to build up the muscle memory for games like that haha!
