Fans of the Genesis original can rejoice with Capcom's release of Strider 2. Not only can they play the classic game they know and love, but the updated version delivers relentless arcade thrills and makes our hero, Strider Hiryu look as cool as any game protagonist we've ever had the pleasure of playing as.
Since it is nothing more than an arcade action game, some casual gamers may shy away from Strider 2's harsh difficulty and limited replayability, while others might enjoy showing off the game's stellar visuals to their friends.
