Strider is back!

I loved this game on the Sega MegaDrive, can't wait to see if they can recreate the magic.

There's been some concern over Double Helix doing it. They don't have the greatest history in the world...

Still, it looks pretty decent.

I really wish you hadnt said that haha, I loved this game on the Sega. I dont remember it being a big game though, although everyone who played it liked it. I hope its good, because thats a day one purchase for me. (Why am I even lying, I have it on a ROM which I have played a few times already haha)

Capcom and Konami are still probably my two favourite arcade game makers.
I think I've had Strider on the Amiga,Megadrive,PSone,one or two compilations. So I like it.

Be nice if a big Capcom or Konami compilation was released on the PS3 or Xbox 360. I can't be bothered with downloads.

I loved Strider on the Megadrive, but I am not sure whether this can stand the test of time and with it been a new game it has none of that retro charm to pull you back in. I played Double Dragon Neon and it was awful, it felt wrong even though the whole thing is basically the same as the old game I remember.

Wow. First thing i look for when buying a game.Can't wait to see how amazing a 1080p game looks, this will probably make Ryse (900p 30fps) look like a N64 game!

I'm hearing that there are definitely demos for the PlayStations but not for the Xboxes. Seems strange if true.

(Not at home to check, can anyone else confirm??)

So far very impressed with this one, Double Helix strikes gold again. This is a really good Strider update, great soundtrack too.

Yeah the demo is on XBL. No demo for the PC version though. some thing that seems to be happening more and more where PC games are concerned. What ever happened to 'try before you buy'.
