Critic Reviews for Strider

Strider is an unbalanced yet extremely stylish platformer, and the series' best game since the original.

Strider is a liberating, free-form action platformer studded with frustrating callbacks to an arcade era better left behind.

Had this game been released a decade or two ago, it might have been seen as a classic of its type, alongside Super Metroid and Symphony of the Night. But today, at the tail end of a wave of Metroidvania-style games, Strider fails to stand out. It's a competent, workable game that draws inspiration from the right places, but which is rarely anything more than a cover version of the greats.

A slick pastiche of '80s retro cool and modern gameplay, Strider is both faithful to its source material and still capable of finding its own identity. It's basically the raddest Saturday-morning cartoon you'll ever play.

The mixture of old school, new school, and Metroidvania works surprisingly well – even if Strider's long-awaited reboot still feels slightly too safe.

Strider is a high-speed, acrobatic action game with a hero that's fun to control from the first blade swipe to the final deathblow.
