    Good game for any old school megaman lover

    Mighty Number 9 is unfairly labeled as one of the most disappointing games of this year. I share a different opinion. It is simple, with old idea's twisting with some new flares. Mighty number 9 doesn't try to impress with the newest graphics, not with spectacular story telling, nor with deep character development. Mighty number 9 is a throw-back to one of the most classic NES games ( Megaman ) and seeks to recreate things of that game. So yes, it is very simple compared to today's gaming standards. But that's the point. So if you're looking for something big and dramatic, something that'll move you with story-telling. This is not your game. But if you want something simple, something with a flare of nostalgia to childhood, and importantly, just something fun and a bit challenging. Then I recommend this game to all classic NES Megaman fans. Because that's what this is, another fun NES Megaman that captures my enjoyment when I want to jump and shoot.

    A Mega Man clone

    It has been crazy seeing the amount of hate this game has been receiving as of late and it can be understandable seeing as how it was delayed so many times and backers didn't receive what they had invested in. Don't get me wrong, this game is fun for the most part it is just the long load times (especially for the Wii U), level design, and some frame drops that make the game feel unpolished. It could have been worked on a little bit more but that should have been the main focus during those delays. At some points the gameplay could get a bit tedious and frustrating but that's how most Mega Man games were. Still not on par with Mega Man but you could see the potential it had.

    I grew up in the NES era and was a HUGE fan of classic mega man games, not so much the ones after those but the originals. So when I heard one of the original creators of mega man would be working on this I was excited. Well after many many delays and a lot of BS, the final product is FINALLY here...and was not worth the wait. It's honestly quite terrible. It's boring, it's extrremely slow, and the graphics are not that great. Honestly, stick to classic mega man.

    I had originally followed this game on Kickstarter and it looked like it was going to be a kickass Mega Man clone. Sadly, once the game was finally released players like myself found the game to be pretty buggy. The bugs were not too bad as I was able to complete levels quickly, but I ended up getting bored with it after five or so levels. I only recommend this game to those who really love the Mega Man series

    After a long wait of delays this game was not worth it one bit! The load times are horrible for a game where the graphics were made very simplistic. The controls are lacking and the animation suffers in frame rates. If they were going to delay it, I would have rather they delay it longer to get everything right rather than release this in the state that it's in. This game is going back to Best Buy and being exchanged for something else.

    I was raised on a health dose of Mega Man games through my childhood so this game really takes you back to those games. The somewhat unforgiving levels to the mechanics of the controls. I would have given this 5 stars but it's just slightly below a true Mega Man. The controls at least for me were a little off and a few of the levels were annoying, but other than that I would definitely suggest you get this game.

    This game was on sale for $10 so decided why not try it out for the price. It has many similarities as Mega Man. Slightly different names used here. The voice acting seems a bit off. It's still pretty colorful and interesting to play. I haven't gotten that far yet, but it's been a good game so far.

    This game is made one of the original creators of the famous "Mega Man" games mostly for the NES, SNES, and GBA. The game isn't as entertaining as I'd like, but the overall package is nice. There is a nice small fold out poster inside and this game has some collectability.

    Ignoring all of the hype and everything from before this game released, I decided to purchase it with an open mind. It may not be exactly what people wanted / expected, but it is still a fun game regardless. It is challenging, but practicing and refining your skills will show results as you progress through the game.

    Overall, this was an solid game. While it doesn't offer anything new or groundbreaking, it's an fairly enjoyable way to wasted a weekend. The game suffers from slowdown at times, and the graphics leave much to be desired. But if you can find this game for $10 or less, it's worth a pickup.

    Most people hated this game. Calling it a mega man wanna be flop.flop... nah. Its not perfect. But folks need to relish the fact somebody took back to the old school. And dod a decent job at it. Yes it has flaws. But what game doesn't. Red box it if your not sure. But I liked it over all.

    More potential than fullfillment

    Mighty No. 9 is a perfectly workable game. The only issue is that it could have been - and should have been - so much more. Cartoony design choices detract from the core game. Uneven game play elements detract from the experience. Still, an interesting pick up at a bargain price.

    Sure, this game failed to liveup to its hype in everyway possible, but it is a decent platformer to kill time with. Start the game with no expectations and you'll enjoy it. Plus, if you get this on clearance like i did for only $10, it's a no brainer!

    Reminiscent of the classic mega-man games I enjoy playing this game. It's not the best game play but it brings back childhood memories.These are memories I want to share with my son. Something about having a Nintendo and the joy they bring with gameplay.

    Not as good as a Mega Man game but I've been having fun playing the couple of levels I've tried. I don't think the game naturally explains the controls to well or what the power ups that you receive do. Still, I've enjoyed getting to play a game of this ilk again.

    Don't believe the reviews that say this game is trash and mediocre. It's an amazing mega man inspired platformer that will keep you entertained for hours. The people that are salty and upset are that way because it's not an exact replica of the old mega man games.

    So the game gets brutally hard, both in difficulty and its not so great controls. Looks fine enough. Its not nearly as "worst game" ever that some say it is, but compared to others things out there its not good either.

    I was disappointed with this game. I heard the development team had also worked on mega man games so I was hoping it would be similar. It looks close but doesn't play the same. At least the price won't set you back too much if you want to give it a shot.

    I bought this game because I really like Megaman, but this is not Megaman. It might be worth playing if you are looking for a Megaman style game, but overall it is a much wasted opportunity to bring back a great game.

    This isn't a masterpiece by any means, but if you like Mega Man and can find this for like $15, it's worth picking up. Just not a classic. If you've played Mega Man, you know what you are in for with Mighty No. 9.
