Summary

Hiryu, the youngest ever “Super A” ranked agent of an elite corps known as the Striders, returns in this action-packed addition to Capcom's classic Strider franchise. For the first time in Strider history, players have access to the massive interconnected world of Kazakh City, which players can explore in any direction they choose. The traditional level structure has been replaced with a retraceable world and a deep ability upgrade system which enables Hiryu to build more power and abilities to penetrate ever deeper into the dystopian adventure.

Double Helix made an admirable attempt at re-inventing Strider.... In some ways, it successfully re-captures the action of the older games, but too often it misses the mark when it comes to delivering a solid Metroidvania experience. It’s a game torn between two personalities, and it shows. The new Strider is at its best when it’s delivering arcade-style action moments, but sadly these come too infrequently and too late for its own good.

But these are just nitpicks about a game that is otherwise pretty good. There aren’t a whole lot of hardcore action platformers out there these days, so Strider’s release is a welcome boon to the hardcore crowd. You’ll love Strider if you like being challenged, but more importantly, you’ll like Strider if you are a Strider Hiryu fan, and there are a lot of those. At the very least, Strider is worth a try, and as long as you are OK with its short length, you should definitely pick it up.

From the moment you embark on your journey right up until the final deathblow, Strider is a blast to play. Controlling this agile ninja feels empowering right out of the gate, and each new upgrade brings with it an enjoyable new way to engage your foes. While his world is a little drab there’s still plenty to explore even after the job is done. Strider is fun, pure and simple, and serves as a fitting revival of a classic video game hero.
