North America Retail Box ArtStrider first slashed his way into American homes in the '80s, with his self-titled release for the classic NES. After a subsequent appearance on the Genesis, Strider Hiryu disappeared from game consoles--until now. Strider is back in a truly old-school action game that will please fans of 2-D classics. Upon first play, Strider 2 may seem like a mindless slashorama, with enemies coming at players from all sides. But there's more to Strider than brainless brutality. Hiryu can also jump, double jump, kick off of walls, slide, and cling to almost everything, which makes it possible to avoid most foes, with practice. For better or worse, Capcom makes it easy for players to blow through this game by way of unlimited continues that let Strider start from the very point where he died. Luckily, players are graded at the end of each level, giving at least some incentive to perform well. --Robb Guido Pros: Vivid graphics and huge bosses Old-school action that requires players to learn the movements of enemies Cons: Players can essentially cheat their way through the game because of unlimited continues
