    This is one of the those rare times when a game was just made right, and while you have every right to love it or hate it, it’d have nothing to do with how it was made. This is an 80’s videogame power-ballad that hits all the right notes.

    Hybrid of Shadow Complex with Moon Diver. The game is great.I playing for several days, I do not come off. I recommend to all fans of the old school.

    On the background of the almost complete lack of quality 2D hack'n'slash games this game is a balm for my heart.

    Strider is everything that an old school metroidvania fan would desire. It has a insanely fast gameplay, which make you feel like a real master ninja. This game is for the action-sidescroller lovers as Metroid and Castlevania old times. I approved. Full Review »
