Our videos of Mighty No. 9

With $3,845,170 on Kickstarter, Mighty No. 9 is a huge letdown, even though, to be perfectly honest, we could really see it coming. First and foremost, the game looks ugly, both graphically and artistically, and to make it worse, it cannot even hold a steady framerate whether on consoles or PC. The dash and absorption mechanics are interesting but the level design is so poor it does not even take advantage of the game's good ideas. Unless you are the forgiving kind and you like a good challenge, we cannot really recommend the game to you.

Hey there
Just a would be editor's notes from me.
”and to make ti worse, it cannot even hold a steady framerate whether on consoles or PC.” The ti should be a it.

Thanks, guess it was a bit too late for me to see clearly. :)

The voice acting is terrible but overall it doesn't look like a bad game. It doesn't look like the game they were advertising, but it has a definite Mega Man nostalgia to it.

That said, a $4m Kickstarter for such a generic game is appalling at best. But to be honest, I'm not even sure that what they were promising was worth $4m either.

The gameplay feels ok to me, the response is very good for an indie game, esp the dash and hitstop

The graphic is, tbh very bad, the fire effect is wtf

For me personally, I'd rather they make this game in 8bit style, I think that'll be better than what it is now.

Well, this might as well be Mega-man. Kinda game that I would like on my Vita when I still had it. Got too many games I haven't finished like Quantum Break which I am enjoying and new game coming like Deus Ex.

When will I have time for Mighty 9? Sometime in Neverary.

Sir, I'll have you know that the proper spelling is Nevuary. This, yielded by examination of a sub-par rap song, is unequivocally, indubitably, and veritably the correct conjugation. I bid you good day.

    KORNdog @Melmoth: exactly. i rarely buy games day one these days. and it's probably why i care so little about reviews. by the time i'm buying a lot of these games they're £15. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth ofc with online games that might not be optimal, as you wanna join in on the fun as soon as possible, and hopefully before everyone moves on to another game. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth so if you wait a month, or half a year, you get the game cheap, and hopefully without too many bugs. win/win (1 Hour ago)
