Hilariously, I find Jetpac (the oldest game on the collection) to be more playable than the later ones like Solar Jetman, RC Pro AM and Battletoads. I just don't enjoy those games anymore, and it actually saddens me.
To preface this comment, I haven't actually played this yet and I didn't play these older games originally which might account for my take on them.
They are just not that good.
I played games in this era but for whatever reason (I was on C64/Amiga) I never played any of the older Rare games, I was watching the Gametrailers video reviews of them and they just looked like bad games, not bad games for now, just bad games. There are games from that era that stand up and games that don't, my thought on this is that the ones that do stand up were always great games, the ones that don't just fooled you into thinking they were when they were actually bad. These Rare games don't look like they stand up very well to me.
