To say that Rare Replay has a lot of content would be an understatement. With 30 games included, a few of which contain 20 hour adventures to experience, completing the package requires weeks if not months of effort. In this case, this long completion time isn't only relevant for achievement hunters, either. There is over one hour of behind-the-scenes footage of Rare that makes tackling the game's many challenges an alluring option for even the most completion-averse.
Let's be real, a very small minority of gamers who get Rare Replay are ever going to unlock each of its over a dozen videos. Thankfully, several users on YouTube have begun to share the many unlockable videos. Out of them, the "Making Of" and "Previously Unseen" are must watches as they demonstrate the process behind how the studio made its most successful games, as well as showing five titles that never saw the light of day.
