A stunning conversion from US Gold, maintaining the original's arcade feel to a tee, and only pipped at the post by the Amiga version a smidgeon in the graphics and sound.
ST Format
With a short burst of samples sound, loads of animation and graphics taken straight from the coin-op, Strider scores well in all departments. If you're one of those people who enjoy a game which has lots of action and violence then Strider is definitely up there with the best of the rest of them. It might not appeal to the strategists out there but who cares - a bout of blasting is far more fun and a lot less taxing on the brain.

There's not much point in taking your time progressing through the levels, as a clock is counting your life away, so you must move quickly. Strider is a fun, addictive game that deserves a place in any arcade collection. The sound could be better, but in the heat of the battle you won't miss that.
Power Play
Eins muß man den Programmieren von “Strider“ lassen: Die Heimcomputer-Umsetzung ist technisch wirklich gut gelungen. Große Sprites, gute Grafik und Animation (allein der Salto des Helden ist einen Blick wert) und ein toller Sound bringen ein richtiges Automatenfeeling in die gute Stube. Das leichte Ruckelscrolling stört kaum. Leider ist aber der Schwierigkeitsgrad ausgesprochen hoch. Spieler, die nur mal zwischendurch ballern, sollten von Strider die Finger lassen. Hier ist das Frusterlebnis zu stark. Profis dürften eher an diesem harten Actionspiel Freude haben.
