    The right way to update a classic.

    Strider is a very good 2D platform adventure with good combat elements and nice bosses. Checkpoints could be better and the levels are a bit too dark in places. [March 2014]

    Strider's pacy combat cuts deep and its challenge escalates at a consistently rewarding rate. [Apr 2014, p.74]

    A modern version of Strider brings out ultimately. It brings stylish gaming setting, hordes of remarkable enemies, and a great action that never gets boring.

    This Strider Reboot is a complete success. Frantic, quite difficult and deeper than its predecessors, thanks to a Metroid-like structure, it brings Hiryu back to life with style.

    The new Strider isn't maybe the best example of a balanced metroidvania style, but ultimately represents a good actualization of a classic that could have been too old for modern standards.

    By combining classic Strider elements with a new Metroidvania structure and speedrun tilt, Strider in 2014 is fresh, relevant and fun.

    Strider fans and speed-run aficionados will get the most out of this but for everyone else, this is a solid, fast-paced platformer that never lets the pace dip long enough for you to become too bored. [Issue#146, p.104]

    A sensitive update for a series many thought would stay stuck in the past.

    Strider isn’t the lightning-in-a-bottle remake that Bionic Commando Rearmed was. That was a clever reimagining, where the updates enhanced the experience rather than detracted, and every new armament felt like a natural requirement of the combat mechanics. Here, it’s overstuffed with nary a worthy challenge in sight.

Strider 1 and 2 were two of the best coin-op conversions on the Amiga home computers and the Sega Megadrive games console. Today it hits current gen consoles with eye-catching graphics and fast -very fast- action! I've been a great fan of the original game and I must say that this remake is fantastic, at least to my taste. Recommended for people who still love 2D action games. Full Review »

It's a blast to play, feels incredible, and offers very different upgrades - unlike modern shooters where each gun just shoots a little different, the different cyphers offer completely new functions. My only gripes are that the game doesn't look all too great on current gen, but that is due to console limitations, entering the final boss area prevents you from getting any collectables you may have missed, and there is no New Game Plus. It's cheap, it's fun, and it'll last you a while if you're trying for 100%. Full Review »
