The Mighty No. 9

Considering the, well, let’s just be gentle here and say “difficult reception” this game has gotten immediately upon release, I went in not expecting much (I was a backer, and so got my copy for PS4). I haven’t played that much yet, maybe an hour or so, and what I’m finding is that I don’t find it to be as awful as what I’ve been reading, but at the same time, it’s not really something I’m feeling like I want to keep playing. There’s been a lot said against the aesthetics, and to be honest that doesn’t bother me much – I’m not blown away by it, but I think it’s fine. In terms of the gameplay, I’m finding it difficult to get in a good groove – I don’t think I really like the “shoot enemies and then dash through them” technique you need to use. I think it’s maybe also not really the game for me – although I loved playing Mega Man games when I was a kid, I really don’t enjoy playing them now.
