YMMV: Rare
  • Awesome Music: Of particular note is David Wise, who is most famous for his work on the first three Donkey Kong Country games. Other notable composers for the company include Eveline Novakovic (née Fischer), Grant Kirkhope, and Robin Beanland.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: A criticism of the later Filmation games in the ZX Spectrum era. As one reviewer put it, they "started off as astonishing and ended up as dead boring, without actually decreasing in quality".
    • Back then, they traded as "Ultimate Play the Game", and many who bought (or at any rate reviewed) their Commodore64 games dubbed them "Ultimately All the Same".
  • Jumping the Shark: The quality in the company's games has sharply declined ever since they were bought out from Microsoft. This is in part because many of the people involved in Rare's Golden Age left the company at that point.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The move to Microsoft.
    • The change to a more generic logo has also sparked negative reaction from the fanbase.
      • Not to mention the exclusive focus on the Kinect...
