Относно играта

A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda is the first chapter in a full featured episodic hardcore action packed side scrolling platformer, in the traditions of retro classics, where you play as Ares, a combat robot created for the sole purpose of saving humanity. Can you live up to the task or will you be reduced to nuts and bolts?
You are Ares, the first Zytron immune robot. A symbol of how far human technology has come, you are the most advanced robot in existence; built to run faster, jump higher, and fire quicker. In addition to these core attributes, your design includes a system for converting spare parts and resources into valuable items, armor, and weaponry. You will need to use everything at your disposal in order to reach and rescue the survivors aboard the Zytron infected space station.

Key features:

  • Play through various locations in the A.R.E.S. universe, each a beautiful, unique, 3D environment with challenging obstacles.
  • You are the ultimate weapon with the ultimate sidekick – Collect the secret items and get power up to become a perfect weapon.
  • Come face to face with colossal opponents, learn their patterns to defeat them in battle.
  • Destroy enemies, collect their parts, and then recycle them to make incredible items, including health packs, ammo, and weapon upgrades.

When I first heard about A.R.E.S Extinction Agenda, a small flutter of excitement overcame me. You see, I grew up on Mega Man and his countless adventures on the NES - with some of those games still to this day being able to rekindle a gaming joy within me when I feel the current slew of gaming titles are doing nothing but putting a damp squib on my desire to play and complete them. There is just something inherently appealing to me about 2D platform side-scrollers that I will always love (again this is probably due to my younger years harboring an almost fanatical fascination with games like Contra and Mega Man) so I didn’t hesitate for a second to add A.R.E.S to my collection. At the time it was touted as Episode 1 in an ongoing series of episodes and the price-tag of $9.99 back in 2010 I felt was a little steep for what was essentially a downloadable first chapter.

It appears something went awry as we are already half-way through 2014 and A.R.E.S has yet to see an Episode 2. Searching the game developers bare-bones website, http://www.x10interactive.com , it appears not much has been going on for quite some time which leads me to believe they are most probably now defunct which is sad in any event but after playing through A.R.E.S (once back in 2010) and now recently in 2014 (for the Steam Trading Card business) I can’t help feel that they had much of a future to begin with. A.R.E.S for all intents and purpose tries so desperately to mimic the successes of the past games yet doesn’t even come close. The entire game feels like a cheap imitation of a mid-nineties Mega Man game and the kicker is that is poses very little to no challenge at all. Even ramping up the difficulty levels does very little to put it on par with some of the more challenging Contra and Mega Man fare released almost 20 years ago.

Whilst the 2D artwork may look nice and the techno buzzing soundtrack amiable providing the listener with tunes to hum to while playing, the platform jumping and shooting mechanics are somewhat borked and will have you flinging more than a few unkind words around the room. Boss fights are an absolute joke and require very little tactical thought on the player’s part where it is simply a case of find a corner and blast away until the enemy is no longer.

I had high hopes for A.R.E.S but in the end I can only lightly recommend this title. Since it appears we will see no continuation of the story, if you must pick up the game (particularly if you want the card drops) rather wait until this the game is being offered at a discount price since currently there are a dearth of more endearing indies games you could be spending a tenner on.

As far as Mega Man clones go, this one can be quite enjoyable. Before you buy it though, be aware that the Xbox 360 version, A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda EX, has a ton of worthy extra content not found on this version such as a new playable character, expanded story and improved graphics.

If you happen to own a Xbox 360, get that version. Otherwise, grab the PC version here on Steam instead. While it may lack all of the 360 version's extra content, it's still worth to play.

ARES is a Megaman clone where you try to save the world against some catastrophe with assistance from your special suit and an ally to give you guidance. I played with a gamepad, so movement is with 1 stick, and shooting is with the other. The story was not the most gripping, standard save the world type stuff. Your suit makes you immune to some chemical that is being released, which is why you are mostly going alone.

I found the enemy types to be pretty repetitive at the beginning. It seems in the first level I fought about 100 copies of the same 3 enemies. The boss design was a little lacking. The best strategy seemed to be to hide out in a corner or tank the fight. The controls were somewhat sloppy. It was difficult to get the tight movement necessary to dodge some attacks.

The graphics are bright and colorful, but I found the animation to be choppy. The environments didn't really do enough to draw me in to the game. Seemed like I was just fighting in giant labs of warehouses. The soundtrack does a little to pump you up, however. It may have been the high point.

I feel that there are enough entries in the Megaman/Metroidvania platformer genre that are more worthy of your time than ARES. Try it if you are a huge fan of these games and are running out of quality options, but I cannot recommend it to everyone.

This game is very entertaining! If you are a fan of Megaman games, this game has a lot of those same features. There's a good variety of weapons and enemies to keep you interested for a long time, as well as secrets that will make you replay levels to collect. Overall, it's a top of the line game in the $10 tier, so definitely worth the buy.

A.R.E.S has a visual appealing to fans of the old 2D Megaman games, with a futuristic setting featuring robots, lasers and gigantic scripted bosses - What's not to like? Unfortunately overly large and uninspired sprites, rushed animation and forgettable story gave the game a cheap feeling.

As for game play, if you've played any Megaman or any shooter platformer game for a matter of fact, then you've played this. The additional of mouse control is greatly appreciated addition, but actually made the game a bit too easy. Repetitive gathering of in-game resources so weapons can be upgraded and purchased simply isn't suited for a face-paced scroller. Finally, the game is so short, it's over before you know it. It took me two and a half hours to beat. I suppose you could go achievement hunting but I can't see this game ever being played again now.

I only recommend this game if you can find it in a bundle, luckily I did this, so not wasted too much money on it. Otherwise, I'd rather suggest playing one of the many old Megaman games instead.
