Good for a few hours, get it when it's on a discount. One thing of note is the upgrade system, which seems quite redundant. You need 3 types of "scrap" to do upgrades, but they drop from the enemies with almost the same ratio. So why have three different types?

A.R.E.S. is kind of short, but very very sweet. While recently updated to the EX edition, also on Steam, this version costs half as much, so if you're on a budget, you can do a lot worse. The game has a very Mega Man X4 feel, with tight controls, an interesting upgrade system, and some really cool environments. Totally worth picking up, but if you've got a few extra bucks to spare, go for the EX version.

Pretty good mouse-aim platform shooter, as I recall. There was a boss fight I had trouble figuring out, but it was so long ago that I can't remember the specifics. Picked up the "EX" edition today based on their "Mighty" discount.

Quick Summary: ARES Extinction Agenda is a side scrolling shooter similar to Megaman, with a very short campaign. The game’s replay value comes from grinding for “recyclable parts” which are used to purchase weapon upgrades, and from trying to get a higher score on each level (faster completion and taking less damage). You’ll want to use a controller for this game.

You play a robot soldier named Ares, investigating the takeover of a human inhabited area where a mysterious gas has seized control of all the electronics (robot enemies). Throughout the game’s 5 levels you discover more and more about Zytron, the green gas responsible for this whole mess, and why it’s hell bent on killing all humans.

Ares gameplay is mostly side scrolling though there is some mild climbing and platforming. You have a double jump, but it’s not especially powerful, and don’t expect to be climbing walls like Megaman. Your life is measured in “energy” which can be upgraded by finding “data cubes” (collectibles) or by getting higher scores in levels. Energy does not regenerate so you’ll probably want to take your time if you’re a new player. There are a few weapons and outfits to choose from, but they don’t have that big of an effect on gameplay.

+The game is fun if you’re looking for a short action packed diversion. The story is okay as well, though nothing special.
+Once you’ve beaten the game you can replay missions at will, trying to get higher scores and trying to collect all the data cubes. This allows you to grind for recyclable parts pretty easily and buy all the weapon upgrades to make your “hard mode” playthrough easier.

-If you play with keyboard and mouse like I did, your aim may be better (mouse aiming) but you’ll run into the problem of keyboards not registering more than 3 buttons pressed at once. For example running, jumping, shooting, and using special moves simultaneously. This will lead to some embarrassing falls to your death.
-The game isn’t hard if you just want to play through, but if you want the steam achievements, they can be a pain. I played through the game twice and couldn’t get higher than C ranking. Maybe I just suck, but to get the high ranking you need to finish each round in half the par time, take no damage, and get 100 hit combos. I couldn’t even beat the bosses without losing half my energy.
-As mentioned before, the game is very short. It takes about 2 hours to beat the whole thing, even if you’ve never played the game before.

Overall ARES may be a short game, but it’s fun while it lasts and the download size is pretty small (graphics are good though). Give it a try if you have it, but don’t feel bad if you don’t have the game’s DLC – Berzerker suit. It just gives you a powerful weapon that passes through walls while making you take extra damage from enemy attacks. It isn’t that useful after the first couple of levels.

It kinda feels like it wants to be both a megaman and a castlevania and it does not really pull off any of either all that well. Cannot complain too much since I got it from a bundle, I think.

Pretty good game, very short though.
Essentially this is a kind of poor attempt at a metroid clone with only 5 stages that last < 10 min each. They could be completed faster if you could move any faster, but you are dreadfully slow. A wider screen with a faster playstyle would have made this game much better, but its zoomed SO FAR IN on your character it leaves almost no room for anything to actually be going on on the screen. I enjoyed the leveling system and upgrading items, everything carried over level to level so you could go back and get stronger for the next one... if you needed it. Its dreadfully easy even on the "hard" setting which just made you take more damage. 5/10

I would have put much less time into the game but the achievements required multiple playthroughs.

First of all the game is ok, i mean the graphics are nothing special (not awesome but not bad either) the gameplay is very good and u can expect it to run well on any computer.
The big problem is that this game is very short 5 levels only.
If u wanna buy it i would recommend on sale.

A.R.E.S is a fun side-scrolling platformer, kinda like Megaman games (the first thing it made me thought of). It provided some decent challenge (at least if you play on Hard difficulty) and the storyline was a pass. You unlock 4 weapons throughout the game which you can upgrade into stronger versions, 5 levels each with its own boss, so the whole game was fairly short and could be finished within 3-4 hours. Although, there is a lot of replayability value if you want to upgrade all your weapons, find all the secrets and get perfect SS score on each level, and other things that are listed in the achievements.

For $5, I'd say the game wasn't bad and definitely worth trying. However, I do want to point out that there is a similar game called A.R.E.S: Extinction Agenda EX which is available for $5 extra (if you already own this game) and is apparently an improved version of this game with more content. I haven't got to play the EX version yet, but I'd say that this game has at least earned my recommendation.

Claramente basado en Mega Man y con toques de Metal Slug en los jefes.

Vamos a empezar por los puntos fuertes.
Su jugabilidad cumple muy bien, cuando mueres (aunque esto ocurra poco) o te dañan, sabes que es tu culpa, en el sentido de plataforma esta bastante bien llevado.
Una historia que puede dar paso a continuación, que a pesar de no ser gran cosa, deja espacio para hacer algo interesante en una posible secuela.

Y bien, ahora las cosas malas.
La "duración" (dura alrededor de dos horas), y si, lo pongo entre comillas porque creo que para las bases que tiene, una duración mayor no le hubiera sentado bien.
La dificultad, como todos sabemos, Metal Slug y Mega Man no son precisamente fáciles, y este se nota que se ha inspirado en ellos (sobre todo en Mega Man) pero se ha quedado muy corto en este aspecto. El juego es fácil incluso en su nivel de dificultad mas alto, y mas sabiendo que puedes hacer botiquines (para mi uno de los grandes fallos en la dificultad).

No hay mucho mas que decir del juego, es sencillo, del montón, pero no por ello malo. Si te gusta este genero y ves el juego rebajado en alguna oferta, te puede dar una tarde interesante.

Como empiezo…es horrible.
Hay que tener en cuenta la saga de Megaman, ya que prácticamente plagia o se basa en el estilo de juego.
El tráiler es falso, ya que el juego nunca va a esa velocidad, ni siquiera en su máxima dificultad. Los diseños de los personajes son bastante rancios. Es un juego corto, que si estas sin intentar hacer lo logros y demás chorradas solo te dura una tarde y recuerdo que el jueguecito cuesta 10/12 € (yo lo obtuve en un pack indie por 1 dólar). Los enemigos son poco variados y simplemente con tener aplastado el dedo en el botón izquierdo del ratón ya te puedes despreocupar de cualquiera. En cuanto a guion es un plagio de Megaman X, pero terriblemente cutre; intentan hacerte encariñarte con los personajes con unos videos con conversaciones clichés y rancias con personajes que apestan igual que el resto del juego. Y el final te quedas con cara de… pos vale, que os den pero bien.
Para rematar el chiste, los DLCs son dos trajecitos que no aportan absolutamente nada útil.
No te motiva a rejugarlo lo mas minimo, y habiendo tanto catalogo gratuito y por menos valor de lo que vale esta bazofia de juego... me olvidaria de el por completo.

En pocas palabras, es un metroid venido a menos.

La jugabilidad es penosa, la historia predecible y nada innovadora, los niveles sin sentido... en general una experiencia de juego nefasta.

Visualmente está bien y los efectos tb, pero... lo siento, me desesperó a la hora y media de juego.

A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda es un buen plataformero de acción con estilo run 'n gun clásico como Gun Star Heroes con un ambiente futurista que, resulta un poco genérico en muchas ocasiones.

No es de lo mejor que existe en este género pero tampoco es lo peor. Quizás lo más criticable sea que lo controles no responden en ocasiones a nuestras acciones y hay problemas determinados con la detección de colision en plataformas y los hitbox de los enemigos no son muy claros, pudiendose deberse a que el motor gráfico del juego es en 3D y lo que conlleva a los devs. Lo lamentable de todo es que esta versión no es la EX (que se trae algunas mejoras con respecto a la jugabilidad y graficos) así que tendremos que esperar su lanzamiento el cual ha sido confirmado.

Tiene sus pequeños problemas, pero es divertido sobre todo el apartado musical que es muy bueno.

Un juego entretenido, para pasartelo en un par de horas (si, es así de corto) y la verdad es que no es muy dinamico...
No obstante si da la casualidad de que lo tienes en tu biblioteca y te aburres un poco, está entretenido y no dura mucho.

Compré este juego pensando que sería un buen juego arcade de plataformas y disparos. Los disparos están bien pero las plataformas son horribles. El control de salto es bastante malo, y he llegado a quedarme atascado durante bastante tiempo en zonas simplemente porque no podía ir saltando confome se pedía.

Además los niveles son bastante largos, alrededor de los 20 minutos, y los checkpoints se pierden si cierras el juego, lo cual hace que tengas que volver a repetir la horrible zona de los saltos y te den ganas de desinstalarlo y darle un análisis negativo.

Don't buy this version but instead, take a look at “A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda EX” which is essentially an upgraded version of the game. I'm only recommending this game based on my experience before the new version released.


TL:DR? See Conclusion

A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda is a 2.5D side scrolling action platform game that attempts to fill-in for the Mega Man (Rock Man) drought.

Like the aforementioned Mega Man series, this game places you in the shoes of an advance combat android named Ares. After a mysterious asteroid collided with a Deep Space Reprocessing station, a group of scientists were sent to investigate an energy emission radiating from it. Shortly after arriving, the team discovers that all the machines inside the station are now hostile to human life after being exposed to a new vapor gas called Zytron which came from the Asteroid. The Scientists, before being trapped, was able to send samples of the Gas back to earth who then develops Ares, an android immune to Zytron. Ares is now sent on a search and rescue mission on the Minos Space Station and along the way, discover the true nature of Zytron.

+ High resolution graphics with a nice and colorful artstyle
+ Crafting System for weapons and item upgrades
+ Good weapon variety
+ Good character designs
+ Outstanding soundtrack
+ Responsive controls (specially on a gamepad)

- Very short
- The game relies on grinding to extend gameplay (what I call “game time through attrition”)
- Story is under developed
- Cinematics are dull with no voice acting and, more importantly, no sound effects except the soundtrack in the background.
- Underwhelming bosses

GOOD GAME which is reminiscent of the Mega Man franchise. It has good high resolution graphics with a nice and colorful artstyle; it features a crafting system based on materials you collect from the world and enemies; the game shines with its amazing soundtrack and responsive controls specially with a game pad. For its cons, the game is very short and the cinematics are a bit boring and unrewarding but for the price however, this game would make as a good casual experience for younger audiences.

Although I'm placing my recommendation, please don't buy this version and take a look at the “A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda EX” instead. It's essentially an upgraded version of the game.

A.R.E.S. is one of those games you can only recommend to a certain few. There isn't anything particularly special about A.R.E.S. and although it attempts to be a solid platformer, it falls short through a frustrating "crafting/shop" system. The majority of items in the game require nearly all three of the specific currencies to construct and unfortunately, one of those currencies is in very short supply throughout the game. After three full playthroughs, the needed currency is always scarce. So farm if you must, though like any hardcore platformer fan, you'll persevere without the upgrades -- even if it kills you.

The game itself is rather short and each successive playthrough becomes shorter because you can keep your unlocked items. My final run through of the game was a little over 40 mins. The cutscenes are decently created in a typical "fanime" style. The story tries to be more than it is and is mostly ignored except in between chapters. There are only 5 chapters with none of the stage environments or enemies revealing anything about the world A.R.E.S. is set in.

I had hoped A.R.E.S. would've been more than what I played and because there is really nothing memorable about the game, I can only recommend this to those that play for the learning experience of game development.

Faulty's scorecard :-

1) Essential purchase
2) Recommended purchase
3) Recommended purchase during a sale
4) Not recommended unless heavily discounted
5) Not even recommended for Steam game collectors

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.
