Strider Review [The Reticule]

Chris Evans writes "As I hadn’t played the 1989 retro version of Strider, I wasn’t aware of the dangers of diving in at the Normal difficultly level. It was a devastating mistake to try and play without prior experience at that level, while I slashed my way through the first few areas of normal bad guys, as soon as I came upon the first boss, I was toast. There was no way I was getting past this guy without knowing more of the ins and outs of the game. I didn’t give up though, not one bit. I returned to the main menu, selected New Game and started once more on Easy. Without that easier difficulty mode I might have thrown my controller through my monitor due to the frustration." (PC, PS3, PS4, Strider, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 4/5
