A valiant attempt by the developer, I guess, but this game just did not do anything for me. Weak story, mediocre game-play, and something about the jump physics made platforming very frustrating. If you already have it as part of a bundle (which is how I got it), then check it out and see for yourself.

Otherwise, I see no real reason to get it on its own.

I didn't like A.R.E.S. that much. It seemed like a side-scrolling action game in the vein of later Mega-Man games but didn't bring much new to the table.

This game is similar to Mega Man in that you run and shoot. The problem I had with it is that the jumping is really awkward and overly difficult. It is so bad it made me stop playing inspite of really wanting to like the game. Gave it two tries, but it just isn't fun. It is a shame since the game feels like it could have potential.

A nice short action platformer, the game is a little short for my taste and just suddendly stop, but it has a big focus on high scores.

I'm not much for words, wish I was. But when I say this is the best platformer on Steam, you have to believe me. The only cons I have with this game is it's a bit too short. But for $9.99 I'd say it's justified. Only thing that'd make this better is an online 2 Player Co-Op.

I may have played too little to have a valuable review. But the fact that I've played so little is explained by the fact that the game didn't catch my attention. I like plataformers and games of the same style (I love Megaman!). It is just that the story is poor, the combat system doesn't offer any fun (you will just hold the button and follow the enemies with your aim. No enemy will offer you a challenge, not even the bosses, not even on hardest difficult) and the scenarios aren't that well designed (as do the enemies. You'll face the same enemies a thousand times).

I think the ideia behind the game is not that bad, I just don't think they got the better out of it.

Megaman, vous aimez, alors A.R.E.S. peut vous plaire. Le jeu allie action et plateforme sur des mouvements en 2D.

Mais à la différence de l'homme bleu, ce qui prime ici est l'action, la plateforme n'est que très peu poussée... Heureusement, car les sauts sont imprécis au possible et vous allez rager plus d'une fois en tentant 30 fois de passer un saut sur un passage obligatoire. Le jeu se veut néanmoins nerveux, on ne s'ennuie jamais avec de nombreux ennemis, les boss frappent par leur démesure et leur fun (quoiqu'un peu dur par rapport au reste du niveau).
Graphiquement, A.R.E.S. ne casse pas trois pattes à un canard mais reste agréable a regarder et tout tourne à la perfection même sur une petite machine.

Et pour finir, LE gros défaut : la durée de vie. En 2 heures, le jeu est fini. Certes, sans compter les succès, mais tout de même, ça fait bien court et on a l'impression que les developpeurs n'avaient juste pas envie de se fouler plus que ça. c'est d'autant plus dommage que le jeu amuse

Personal Rating: "Grab it during a sale"
Traditional Rating: 5/10
Genre: Action Platformer/Sidescroller

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.

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. is what you get when you mix Megaman, 80's cartoons, and the old DoS game "Abuse", and put them all in a 2.5D blender.

A brief review for a brief game, A.R.E.S. can typically be finished in one sitting, which of course is the point. Weapon purchases and upgrades transfer over with every new game that is started, and there are multiple endings depending on the difficulty one chooses, throwing in a little bit of bullet hell style progression into the mix as well. And for you OCD types, there's also some collection elements, so it's fun to go back and suss out secrets from every corner you can find.

If I had one complaint about this game, it's that you absolutely should be playing with a controller. I realize that isn't much to ask in this day and age, but for those stuck on a mouse and keyboard, unfortunately the programming of the game will only allow you to press two keys at once, so for some of those tricker platforming sections, it gets a little extra hard to navigate properly.

That aside, the game runs smoothly, looks nice, has a bit of a cartoonish feel to the plot, and is mostly just an excuse to run around and cause robots to explode. And at the end of the day, isn't that all we all really want?

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.

It's, ok.
Get if its on sale and you REALLY want a quick mediocre fix for lack of Megaman games these days. The graphics look very N64-ish. The controlers do not feel as tight as they should be (like many N64 titles). Kind of sluggish. Even unresponsive at times. I've experienced a handful deaths where my attempt to make a simple jump ended with me walking right off a ledge to my doom. And for no obvious reason other than buggy controls.

Overall the game is fun for a short time and not nessesarily a bad purchase. Just don't expect anything amazing. Overall the game just looks sounds and feels weak but if you get past that and just enjoy it for what it is (a Megaman esc action platformer) then you might actually like it. If this were a console game I would sum it up as a good one to rent.

Crazy-intense high-twitch side-scroller. Looks like a modernized version of Mega Man or Metroid, but plays more like Contra - lots of enemies coming at you all the time. It theoretically supports gamepad, but it plays nicely with keyboard-move, mouse-aim controls.

If that's what you're looking for, it's a lot of fun! Good graphics, good music, occasionally-frustrating-but-mostly-in-the-good-way gameplay.

I grabbed the Complete Edition on sale for a few bucks and while it was a fairly short game, I still enjoyed it. It is a great nod to Mega Man and older 2D Side Scrollers, but again, my only complaint was the length. From what I have read, there does not seem to be a planned sequel (could be wrong though) which is unfotunate, because from what you get out of the story, it could have easily lead into multiple sequels. Again, I had fun playing this. It only took a few hours, but it was still a pretty fun game and was deinitely worth what I paid for it. If you like Mega Man, definitely pick this up when it is on sale and check it out!

It's been a while since i've played a good sidescroller for PC but i am pleased to say, ares is JUST the thing. Minimal story (note, there IS a decent enough story, but it doesn't get in the way whatsoever) upgrades are a nice amazing touch and they don't completely break the game. As a bonus grinding the necessary materials took me only about half an hour to max all upgrades. Exploration is VERY rewarding as you can find various upgrades that either lower crafting costs or enhance your abilities. The bosses are FUN to fight and tough as nails until you get the patterns right. While the game certainly isn't a breeze, the difficulty plus the satisfaction of nailing down a difficult pattern is on par with the satisfaction of doing so in old NES classics such as ninja gaiden and megaman (from which ares draws a lot of inspiration) On the downside jumping is the worst kind of clunky. It works perfectly under normal conditions but the jumping is just a FEW pixels off. Not much normally, but on stages of heavy hurried platforming deaths galore if you don't perform a FLAWLESS jump.
I got the game from indiegala on special for $2.60 but i'm having more fun with it than other AAA titles, as such with all it has to offer, i would rate this a 8/10 the game is VERY addictive and satisfying even if the jumping is off other than that what keeps this from being a truly stellar (read: future classic) is how little risk they took, as well as how little tools they drew from the games they paid homage to. not just weapons, but collectible armor pieces (megaman x) would have been AMAZING coupled with bigger open world environments a-la- metroidvania would have been even more amazing. Icing on the cake would have been a ledge climbing mechanic such as metroid fusion-onwards and this game would have stood its ground with the greats, probably knocked out a few.
as it stands now however it's still an amazing game. i you HAVE the money, i suggest you buy it even if just for the sweet sweet nostalgia value

This game really surprised me. I don't know what it is about it, but I keep coming back and want to finish it. The art style is interesting if not a little basic, the map design is similar to almost any other game of the genre, the controls are pretty good (though some of the platforming is a bit iffy) and the enemies aren't anything exciting. Yet somehow I keep playing. None of the faults are too bad and the gameplay is still good so if you can look past some of the not-so-outstanding aspects, you'll find a decent game underneath it.
