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.

I tried to like this game, but it just really doesn't appeal to me.
The controls feel slow, and the jump is absolutely abysmal. Several platforming puzzles lead to frustration just because of how short the Character's jump was.
You're also told early on that you can change suits, but the game does not give any explanation as to why you'd want to do this, and how each suit affects you. From what i experienced, there isn't any discernable difference between the suits anyway, aside from the berserker suit.
The enemies are more of an annoyance than anything else, and it's very difficult to dodge their projectiles as your character is rather large. And even if you do get hit a lot, you can easily craft a cheap healthkit that heals most of your bar. Speaking of the crafting system, you can also make grenades. But i rarely found myself using them, aside from when they were required to bypass obstacles, they can also be used to perform an air dash move, but this needs to be charged up and so is only useful in specific situations.

All in all, I think this game isn't really that good. If you like platformers such as megaman, then i'd recommend buying it during a sale. But other people probably won't enjoy this.

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.

Please do not buy this game. It is years old, and it is buggy beyond belief. I literally walk through a door, the ground is not detected and I immediatly fall to my death in several cases.

If it wasn't for that, this is a loose platform shooter using a dual stick idea, one for shootin' and one for movin'. It would be a much more fun idea if it played tighter.

You can do better than this game with mega man mods and clones online as freeware.

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.

A.R.E.S. is a fun game though it doesn't have anything that really makes it stand out from the rest of the platform games. It's a sci-fi futuristic platformer with cumbersome controls. It's not a horrible game by any means, but it lacks the ability to keep your attention and wanting more. I did beat the game, but it sat in my library for a very long time prior to beating it. Look somewhere else for a good action platformer.

I would get this on sale for $1.00 anymore than that no.
This game is like a crappy version of megaman however does some things right.
It is worth a playthrough if you enjoy games that are a crappy ripoff off megaman.
Why am I reccomending this? I played it through and 100% the game it was easy and quick fun like i said though 6/10 nothing special.

If you are familiar with the Megaman series back in the days, you will definitely see the similarity here in this game. You control a futurisitc armored character in this 2D character with 3D environment side scrolling where you collects scraps to upgrade your weapon and equipment. However I must warn you that this game is much more challenging. I played this game using a game pad and how I loathe the jumping part. It sometimes does not register the jump when you press. Also there are many situation in the game when you die almost immediately causing to repeat a scene over and over again.

If you liked Megaman and love to take games challenges to a greater height then this is the game for you.

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.

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.

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.

Shoulda called it JUMP 'N SHOOT MAN. A Megaman tribute or ripoff or something, A.R.E.S. is a "walk to the right and shoot" platformer with a tacked on crafting system. It lacks a lot of polish, and the controls seem awkward, but if you're into Megaman style games it might be worth a look.

Watch a few gameplay videos, and if it seems interesting, grab it on sale.

At best, A.R.E.S. is competent. It doesn't know whether it wants to be Mega Man or Metroid, and suffers for it. The level design includes both large multi-scrolling rooms and more platforming-oriented sections, and it's never entirely clear which drops are bottomless pits and which lead to other parts of the stage. I'm also not happy with the upgrade mechanic, which encourages literal grinding as you kill enemies for the three types of items that are needed to upgrade your weapons. The controls also feel a little slow, with the dash move in particular always feeling like it's just a little too long to execute and traverses just a little too short a distance to avoid enemy attacks.

At least the boss fights are pretty fun, and it's entertaining when you get into the groove of blasting enemies and jumping from platform to platform. But all of its other problems make it hard to recommend. You could do worse, but you could also do a whole lot better. Try Cave Story+, Noitu Love 2, or They Bleed Pixels if you want to play a really good action-platformer.

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?

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.

Do not buy unless you are a SERIOUS Mega Man X junkie in need of a fix, and even then be aware you'd probably have more fun replaying X7 or X8 than this game. It's short, controls are janky, and it gets cheaper and cheaper as you go through its five levels.
