  • Summary: Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh. You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots,Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh. You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can tackle in any order you choose, using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet. Once, you worked together, side-by-side but now, your fellow Mighty No. robots have lashed out, taking over key strategic locations across the globe and infesting them with their minions. You have no choice: the other Mighty Numbers...Must. Be. Destroyed. Expand

    Mighty No. 9 isn’t perfect, but it is something that anyone who grew up loving any kind of Mega Man game should check out.

    Mighty No. 9 is an extremely niche product. The efforts of the developers do not reflect the millionaire crowdfunding campaign that gave birth to the game, but the final result is still more than decent and can be really fun for those who love this videogame genre.

    Even with dull visuals and a little too much reliance on the past, in a world where Capcom has seemingly forgotten that the Blue Bomber exists, Mighty No. 9’s enthralling boss battles make it an okay substitute to fill that void for the time being.

    Frustrating to play and a pale imitation of Mega Man, Mighty No. 9 is unlikely to command the same reverence as its older cousin.

    It was certainly compelling enough for me to want to finish the game. There are also plenty of challenges to help hone platforming skills which ultimately do help in finishing the regular levels. As a game that is clearly supposed to appease Mega Man fans who will likely never get a new game in the series ever again, it falls spectacularly short of their expectations, particularly those that assisted in the crowdfunding campaign.

    It’s an OK game; completing bosses does feel nice considering all the crap you just went through and overcoming the risk of having to redo it all again.

    Good Lord, so far I think this was my Tony Hawk of 2016 despite me being slightly more generous.

    I don't know what you're complaining about. This is Megaman in 2.5D. It's a mindless, fun game.
    What were you expecting, a blockbuster,

    What were you expecting, a blockbuster, cinematic game a la Uncharted?

    Fans are pissesed no 9
    If I reviewed how this game was handled and how mad backers are i would give it a 2 out of 10. But to be fair ill review the game it self. The game has mediocre graphics and very bad voice acting to the point that it sounds like a comedic relief. But If you are a hardcore old school mega man fan you will feel right at home with this game. The game is very fun to play and addicting to some point and the DLC character Ray keeps the experience fresh. Feeling more like the X series. Becks absorb ability keeps the fast paced action intense and boss fight are good. If you are not a fan of mega man you should probably skip this game. But if you are a mega man fan the nostalgic touch of this game will keep you hooked for a while!

    so glad I was not part of this kickstarter. they really should have made it a one hit kill on normal for the entire stage. the bosses areso glad I was not part of this kickstarter. they really should have made it a one hit kill on normal for the entire stage. the bosses are horrible. gameplay is frustrating and a nightmare. if you are going to make it this ridiculous, don't ever make another game ever again. this is why we should have a refund system.

The graphics are muddy and ugly with sluggish game play that just isn't fun. With so much money and hype put into this game you have to wonder where it all went cause the end product feel like they cut every corner they could. Keiji Inafune already got to make his mega man with Mega Man X and you would be better off tracking down a copy of that game. Expand
