For an indie title, ARES is really impressive. For a full on downloadable title, this is impressive. ARES does so many things right, it’s hard not to want more. Even with its short story mode, there is always more to do in the game. The presentation and music is top notch that makes the game just that more enjoyable. It’s available on Steam for $9.99, and its well worth the money. I suggest everyone check it out.
I liked A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda, and if you’re into old-school action-platformers or Mega Man X-like titles, you probably will too. The game can be difficult, and although it’s short, the overall A.R.E.S. experience promises to be episodically delivered. Therefore, this title is really only scratching the surface. At five stages, A.R.E.S. is an experience that tries to stress speed-running and earning better overall scores at the end of stages. There are collectibles to find, and a few different weapons to experiment with. At $10, A.R.E.S. is a good game to download and play one night when you’re bored. Just don’t expect more than you’re paying for, and you won’t be let down.
The game plays pretty well, a nice mix of retro styles and modern looking visuals. It’s very short, only taking a couple of hours, but according to the developers this is Episode 1. The classic retro platform feeling was nice to play again and although the game won’t win any awards it provides some light relief after a stressful day at the office, and for £6.99 from Steam you can’t really go wrong. I liked A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda and despite the spelling errors on the dialogue and movement issues it is a fairly good game and one the kids can play quite happily.

Неожиданно качественный «платформер», но простой и очень короткий. Так что если у вас есть дела поважнее, чем ностальгировать перед монитором, лучше подождать остальных эпизодов и появления игры в Xbox Live Marketplace.
It starts off impressively with beautifully rendered backdrops, stirring soundtrack, suitably chunky weapons and screen-filling bosses. But the game quickly undoes all of its good work with a hopelessly pernickety jump system that turns routine platforming negotiation into a tiresome war of attrition. What a shame. If the team can perhaps fix a few niggling issues via an update A.R.E.S. will be well worth a look, but until then this is a case of try before you buy.
