  • 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.

But I popped it into my handy dandy ps4 and was quickly provenI had very low expectations for this game, especially during the kickstarter. But I popped it into my handy dandy ps4 and was quickly proven wrong. Simply put, this game is better than any mega man game that preceded it. More specifically, this game puts mega man 2 to absolute shame. Its like comparing Ocarina of Time to No Man's Sky. The graphics for this game put Crysis 3 to shame. When compared side by side you can see the absolute clear winner. The story for this game is the most heart-renching, emotional-driven experiences I've ever encountered. I don't see it ever getting beaten. The mechanics for this game is very very innovative and succeeding video games would be foolish to not copy it. The character design is a thing of beauty, the person who designed them should honestly win an Oscar. I would absolutely encourage all those to attempt to play something we will probably never see again from a developer. 10/10 cried 9 times. Expand

Yes, the development hasMighty No. 9 is the Nickelback of Video Games: A lot of memey, undeserved hate for an otherwise average experience. Yes, the development has been super shady and it obviously hasn't lived up the insurmountable hype that it generated three or so years ago (shocker), but if you look at it as a game, it's totally fine. Its about on par with a Mega Man 8 experience, complete with the 2.5D and Cringey AF voice acting. Its not an amazing game by any means, as it definitely has its issues, but overall its harmless, especially for $20. Expand

They never send out the physical rewards, no one response for all issues. The game comes out like a cheap products, its not what I want before I backed. Will not buy any games by Comcept anymore, as their company they cant be trusted. Expand
