Comment Who would have thought that Rare did make this game?





Review By Ridge

Rare, one the 5 best game developers in the world did also make the worst game ever on CD32. This was also their only game made. The worst thing is that they made Donkey Kong Country on SNES at the same time and kicked heavy ass at the time...It's even made the same people that developed that game. The only good things in this game is that the intro have sometimes good GFX and scrolls 50Hz. The GFX is far from the Rare standard and they must have smoked something while making this game. There is not much more to say about the just sucks!

For 10 years Rare have been making games only for Nintendo and nowadays for Game Cube. For those who don't know what Rare is famous for, here is a list.

Donkey Kong Country 1,2 and 3, Killer Instinct etc. on SNES.
Perfect Dark, Goldeneye 007, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Banjo Kazooie, Blast Corps, Killer Instinct, Diddy Kong Racing, Donkey Kong 64, Mickey's Speedway Racing, Banjo Tooie on Nintendo 64.
And yes, i own all of them on N64 carts :D

They did also make some of the best games on NES 8-Bit in the 80's... RC Pro-Am Racing, Snake Rattle'n Roll etc...

Now on Nintendo Game Cube they have several upcoming kick-ass titles like Starfox Adventures, Perfect Dark 2, Kameo: Elements of Power, Conker's other bad fur day and Donkey Kong Racing.
And several not announced yet.

NOTE: Playstation 2 and Xbox magazines is faking previews on Rare games that will only be released on Game Cube because Nintendo owns them. They have a good reason to drool over the new Game Cube games from Rare, but they must get a Game Cube to play them :)

Anyway...Noone should deserve to play Battletoads, but besides this game the company have hardly made any bad game.
