Mighty No. 9 brings all new meaning to the age-old message board adage: looks like a PlayStation 2 game. And that's mainly because… Well, it does. But at least with low-quality production values you can be guaranteed a sturdy framerate on the PlayStation 4, right? Right? Right? Not so, as Digital Foundry has taken the PlayStation 4 version to task in a new video.
Frankly, the results are baffling. The title's low-res explosions cause the performance to dip like an England player's form during a major international tournament, while one ice stage locks the framerate to 40 frames-per-second – regardless of whether VSync is turned on or off. Basically, it's a bit of a mess – and it sounds like there are issues on all platforms.
Not-so mega, man.
