    Mediocre No. 9

    I'm kind of on the fence with this one. Touted as a spiritual successor to Mega Man and backed by $4 million of Kickstarter cash, Mighty No. 9 should have been an inspiring success story of how one developer went rogue (Keiji Inafune) and delivered what the fans wanted against all odds. Somewhere along the line, something went wrong. After facing numerous delays, Mighty No. 9 is finally here...and while it does disappoint in some ways, it also delivers. Let me explain: What you get here IS very much in the spirit of Mega Man. The characters are slightly different...but the 8 robot bosses, stealing their powers, and run-and-gun platforming gameplay are all intact--plus a couple of minor twists. The most noticeable difference is that Beck (the main character you play as) can dash into enemies to deal the final blow and absorb their power. You're encouraged to prime enemies with your main blaster or other powers, then quickly dash into them for temporary buffs and point bonuses. Love it or hate it, this gives the gameplay a frantic pace not found in Mega Man games. It's worth mentioning that there are a couple of frustrating sections in this game--mainly in the form of instant-death traps (thankfully, checkpoints and extra lives are plentiful). Graphically, Mighty No. 9 is disappointing...even for a lower-priced game. The backrounds are almost lifeless, the character models barely move during the story scenes, and some effects are underwhelming (yes, the explosions do look kind of like pizza). This is the area in which the game feels the most unfinished. In addition, framerate issues are present here and there. While nothing major (at least in the PS4 version), given the simple graphics it's inexcusable in this day and age. The music and sound effects of Mighty No. 9 are sufficient and communicate the game's intended retro theme. The airy, techno-y tunes are superb and very reminiscent of past Mega Man games, and the voice acting is serviceable (corny, but endearing at the same time). When the dust settles, what you're left with in Mighty No. 9 is a short-but-sweet platformer which lacks the graphical punch and charm to elevate it above average status. This IS a letdown...but it's still an enjoyable game. It's a dose of old-school goodness that could've used some more coordination, but I still encourage you to give it a go...even if it doesn't quite live up to its legacy.

    Not the greatest, but it satisfies a megaman fix

    The game is rough around the edges, but it is a megaman game regardless of the quality. It is better than some of the original NES games, worse than others. The difficulty is pretty high, but watching speedruns shows that each situation has a counter that trivializes it. For example, people say that the last boss is harder than even the yellow blob boss in megaman 1 because it shoots out a fountain of heavily damaging projectiles that covers the whole screen; it is normally impossible to not get hit, but spamming the sword slash ability causes all of the boss projectiles to pass right through you. You can go through the whole boss in less than a minute without getting hit knowing this. Not the greatest, but nothing offensively bad. Physical box comes with a $5 DLC pack for free as well as some art from the game.

    I was a big fan of the Mega Man and Mega Man X series, so I purchased this game. It's similar, but different and more difficult in my opinion. I've beaten 5 of the Mega Man X games, and 2 or 3 of the original Mega Mans, and I still say this is hard. It is a unique take on the game, but mastering the Xcelerate technique was quite difficult in my opinion. If you like platfomers like this, stick with the redone Mega Man Legacy Collection for PS4, and all smart phones, or, if you still happen to own a PS2 or PS3, PS2 has the Mega Man X Collection and PSN has several of the Mega Man X games that came out on Playstation that I would recommend over this one.

    not sure why some other reviews are putting this game down. i love it, total classic gaming with updated graphics. although i will have to say that the heros suit is kinda dorky haha. if you liked Mega Man games from the NES and SNES platforms then you should like this. its a bit of a knock off BUT if you take the time to look up the backstory of this game you'll understand why its made the way it was. anyway, to make the game playable i have to set the music to 8bit, i cant stand the original soundtrack.

    Kickstarter Disappointment

    Sadly, a new Mega Man for a new era this is not. Inafune instead of showing that the Mega Man legacy can live without Capcom, instead we're given a rather ho-hum platformer that would have been a $10 digital release on the last console generation. Beck handles well and the platforming is still very precise but everything else about the game is so average and bland. I feel bad for those who donated a lot to this on Kickstarter based on the nostalgia-rich screenshots that we were given at the time.

    Bought it for $1.54 (Used a $5 RC, it was on sale for $6.54), I felt the need to buy another platformer and I looked at this and yeah bought it. So far Im enjoying, story is meh, the soundtrack on the other hand does sound similar to Megaman's soundtrack. It is a bit challenging, just a bit not too bad. Still, not too bad of a game as many critics and gamers made it sound to be. If you're looking for a platformer, here's one but I suggest you buy it when it's cheaper than $10.

    After such a successful kickstarter campaign, and all of the hype surrounding this title, I expected a much better experience for my money. While the title does have a very neat scoring system which emphasizes speed and precision, there are far too many other technical flaws that mar what could have been an otherwise enjoyable experience. If you can get this in a bargain bin for around $10 or less, sure give it a whirl, but at full retail price, leave it alone please.

    I just finished playing a couple hours of this game. It definitely has some nostalgia factor and the way it looks and sorta plays out feels like a old school Mega man game. But at the end of the day its not. The mechanics of the game is not the same, it plays more like an arcade-y style game with some mega man themed story and gameplay. Its does feel a bit clunky but other than that it is a great game, just dont know if its worth calling it a mega man successor.

    What a bad joke this turned out to be - I've waited for this game (since they bumped the delivery date 2/9/16) in hopes it would deliver some nostalgia......it did, a unpolished Wii nostalgic experience. Save your money and buy Megan Man collection, or Powered Up/ Maverick Hunter X (PSVita) - both were head and shoulders above this garbage. And it doesn't come with cross buy with Vita (as promised on box). This will be a free game in no time - it's that bad.

    WHen it comes to games, it is always important to manage your expectations. This game has been so hyped and delayed, that by the time it released, it failed to measure up to the anticipated. I would say that it is more of a "safe" Megaman type of game. But the backgrounds and graphics could have been better. Considering that another Mega Man game likely isn't coming, Mighty No. 9 is a decent effort for a potential successor.

    If you're a fan of the Mega Man series, which you likely are if you're interested in this game, I don't think you'll be disappointed for the low asking price. Just be ready for relatively poor graphics and voice acting. Controls are great, boss fights are often great, and the level design overall I would say is average, but hits very high highs and very low lows. I still recommend it and don't regret my purchase.

    If you're a Mega Man/Rockman fan like myself, you'll enjoy the game because it feels so familiar. As it should, since Keiji Inafune created both franchises. However, it feels a little uninspired based on what was pitched on Kickstarter nearly 4 years ago. My guess is that Inafune bit off more than he can chew. Is it worth it? Only if you get it on sale. It's a decent game, but nothing spectacular.

    I had high goes for this game when it was first announced. When it got bad press, I sick by it and tried to be promising. Then I got my copy. Holy moly I'd this game bad...it just makes you think how could 4 million dollars make this game. It loses and plays like an indie game on a tight budget. It gets 2 states because you can at least pay through without glitches

    I was a little worried about buying this game given the feedback I've heard. I must say while it doesn't have the high dollar production cost other games have, this one stands tall. If you are a fan of the Blue Bomber, i think you'll like this one. Gameplay is similar, and the fun is there to be had. Not as challenging as its predecessors, but still, a great ride to the end!

    I was unprepared for how truly horrible this game is. "It's like Mega Man, how bad could it be?". Well, the graphics are bland and generic, and mechanically the gameplay feels bad and unsatisfying. If you're looking for a Mega Man platforming fix, do yourself a favor and just buy the Mega Man Legacy Collection instead, which includes 6 far superior games.

    I was mainly a fan of the mega man legends games, but the original mega man games where still fun. I guess I thought this was going to be similar, or like viewtiful joe, but it was not. It was also quite short (some of the old mega man games where as well I guess). I got this on sale so it was fairly cheap, but there is no replay value at all that I can see.

    Mega Man fans were very excited by the Kickstarter for this but the results are a bit disappointing. Rather than an old school Mega Man in a modern skin, some remarkably primitive bits are shown almost immediately. They aren't retro so much as amateurish. Still, if you're a Mega Man junkie and the price is right, this can be your fix for a while.

    This is certainly a Mega Man reboot, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The mechanics differ in that you normally have to use a dash mechanic to defeat enemies, but once you get used to it, it's quite fun! I also enjoyed having weapon energy regenerate, so using boss weapons during the stage was encouraged.

    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.

    I kickstarter the game and still waiting for my copy. Got it at best buy and played it for couple of hours, the graphic completely changed since they first show it years ago, it downgraded and no longer look HD. Gameplay is not bad but still, their promise is broken :/
