"It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a Strider game: 13 years, in fact.
News of a reboot of the series came out of left field for many San Diego Comic Con goers this past summer, and while some fans may be hesitant about it given developer Double Helix’s track record, I knew I had to try it out myself to see how it holds up.
Admittedly, I fall into the camp of people who are more familiar with Strider Hiryu’s presence in the Marvel vs. Capcom series then in his arcade and console past. Nevertheless, the premise is easy to grasp: Strider is an assassin hellbent on taking out the villainous Grandmaster Meio, and so you dash, jump and slice your way through his forces in a gracefully fast-paced manner." - Patrick Kulikowski
