GamesRadar: "People seem to arrive at the Strider franchise in a multitude of ways. Some vividly recall the original arcade version, and the stunningly accurate Genesis port. Others remember Strider on NES, a large-scale platforming adventure that was completely different but just as awesome as the first. Maybe you know him primarily as a Marvel vs. Capcom character, or perhaps you're among the lucky few who played Strider 2. Whatever the case, the new, downloadable Strider reboot seems like it'll have something for everyone."
