NOTE:
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

INTRODUCTION:
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.

PROS:
+ 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)

CONS:
- 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

CONCLUSION:
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 real gem of a platformer. I loved the currency system in here as you can replay previous missions to collect more recycled parts to create power-ups and upgrades to your character's weapons.

The actual levels are very well designed, there are plenty of jumping puzzles which can get frustrating but it's still a required feature in any platformer.

I really enjoyed using the plasma field weapon, you feel pretty overpowered while using it, although you are far from it as you will find yourself dying over and over again but wanting to come back for more.

Really recommend this as it's good few hours gameplay for cheap!

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.

It's Megaman but it is only 2 hours long (if that), it focuses on score attacks, and it ends just when you thinking it’s getting good. It's the poor man's Megaman substitute and not worth it in my opinion. It has more promise than it can deliver in its sad 2 hours.

A.R.E.S. is a Megaman clone. The whole package looks pretty good and seems worth a buy, but after playing through it I was rather disappointed.

The game's visuals are pretty solid, the controls are fine, and the music is great. The title screen track just sounds awesome. Hell if I remember what the story was about.. It runs fine too.

The title screen and the music playing immediately give the game a Megaman feel - well, more of a Megaman X feel.
The game itself plays like you'd expect a Megaman game to, except that you control your shots location with the mouse/
analog stick. You go through levels and kill bosses, unlock new weapons and some suits, blahblah.

Its not really bad, but it just doesn't feel satisfying. Something about this game feels off and only left me wanting to play an actual Megaman game.
I can't really point out what about this game isn't good, but whatever it is just ruined it for me. I did play through it completely once, but its not something I'll ever do again and I wouldn't say it was even a fun use of time.

One of the few purchases I probably regret - even if it was only a couple dollars during a sale.
As cool as it might seem to have a Megaman-styled game on Steam.. it really isn't worth the time. If you want to play
Megaman on PC then emulate it or wait for Mighty No. 9 because that one looks like its gonna be good :)

A so-so side scroller.

Cons:
Controls are laggy
Hard to properly dodge given the size
I could have sworn I saw this game before ... mega person, kilo man ... I just can't think of the name ;-)

Pro:
Looks good
Often in bundles or in a sale for under $2
Steam cards
Not a bad game
Can be finished in 5-6 hours

Overall:
It's an OK game. It's just not a great game. It's been done before. It will be done again. If you need another side scroller grab it on sale. If your like me and find them ho hum .. pass.

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.

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.

6/10

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
