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.http://store.steampowered.com/app/315340/
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.
