“Rare Replay is a great way to experience some of the best games from the studio’s past, and the new videos that document Rare’s storied history are the icing on the cake; it’s just a shame that you can’t access them from the start.” – Peter Brown 
Xbox Achievements — 85/100
“Rare Replay is undoubtedly an insane amount of value for money, shining a light on one of the world’s most celebrated developers and 30 of their biggest titles. A great mix with some classics, not so classics, and games that slipped under our radar, all brought together with slick presentation and an incredible amount of fan service. All hail Rare.” – Dan Webb

“Buy it if you’re an Xbox One owner who could use a deep dive into classic, super-hard games.” – Sam Machkovech 
Destructoid — 9/10
“Rare Replay is a new milestone for compilations. A great deal of care was put into the project, and 30 games is enough meat to ensure that everyone will really enjoy at least half of them. I sincerely hope this is the start of a revival of the classic Rare we know and love.” – Chris Carter 
Game Informer — 8.75/10
“I have little reason not to recommend Rare Replay, even to those who don’t have nostalgia for the studio. The breadth of content is impressive, and each game has been faithfully ported and upgraded in ways that don’t interfere the original experience. It serves as an exciting reminder of Rare’s best years and makes seeing the developer’s iconic blue and gold logo exciting all over again.” – Kyle Hilliard 
Videogamer — 8/10
“For what it is, Rare Replay is absolutely worth adding to your Xbox One collection, even if it leaves you wanting just a little more.” – Tom Orry
