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.

Penance notwithstanding, Strider takes most of the best parts of its lineage to heart. Double Helix has built a game that captures the wide-eyed exploration of 8-bit adventures and marries it to razor-sharp side-scrolling combat. It's not that Strider ever felt like it needed that combat sophistication but it is all the better and more vital for it.

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.

Strider's large-scale levels make for great platforming, and really this is the heart of the game. Double Helix seems to have taken the best parts of the platforming games we love and put them in to one package. There are clear inspiration from games like Shadow Complex, God of War and maybe even Super Metroid. Whatever the the inspiration, the implementation is perfect, resulting in Strider setting the bar high for platforming games in 2014.
