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.

There are only a few spots that the ninja’s blade could use a little sharpening. Not that I was expecting The Last of Us, but the story isn’t all that great. ...In the grand scheme of things, these complaints are relatively minor. Strider is a great reboot for old-school arcade junkies and at the same time a fresh action experience for newcomers to the franchise.

Strider is an enjoyable game but it’s not one that particularly stands out against others of its type. It is cleverly designed, as this style of game must be, but not so much that it earns the right to sit alongside the genre’s ageing greats.... It’s a decent game that generally looks very nice and will while away a few hours, but you won’t be rushing to tell your friends about it and you might not want to return after completing it.

Games like this live or die on their pacing, on the rate at which new gear is doled out. Double Helix finds no small success here, while also ensuring that Strider respects its heritage. ...Double Helix has positioned itself as a sort of anti-WayForward, seeing retro IP not as an excuse for chiptunes and pop culture gags, but a chance to update old games for modern fans. Strider, then, is a sensitive update for a series many thought would stay stuck in the past.
