I feel people just expects more out of Rare. They were basically Nintendo good, and now they aren't.
A good comparison is Retro. Retro has kept their quality since their Iguana days, so people are cool with them.
The problem is that Rare fanboys take their complaints with the company's Microsoft output way too far, to the point where it's just abusive and disrespectful, not to mention over-exaggerated as hell. Like, if I was a video game designer, I wouldn't even enjoy my job anymore if I had every other gamer calling the title I slaved hard over "among the top ten worst/most disappointing FPS ever made".
The Nintendo-era Rare fanboys are just cancer, pure and simple.
