The Games Machine (UK)
As fast and furious as the 16-bit games, Strider leaps around the screen with equal determination and acrobatic style, though lacking his slide movement (memory problem). The ingame tune manages to be good in comparison, despite the machine's obvious problem in competing with the 16-bit versions.

Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Fast action, great graphics and addictive and challenging gameplay make this the best Amstrad game around.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The first 8-bit version we have seen, and very impressive it is. The graphics are well coloured and defined and keep the feel of the game. The only real gripe is the weak sound effects.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Umso erstaunlicher, daß gerade die Amstrad CPC-Fassung, die normalerweise zwecks Geldverdienens mehr recht als schlecht hingeklatscht wird, bedeutend spielbarer ist als der C-64-STRIDER. Zwar sind die Grafiken noch spärlicher und der gute Sound leicht kratzig (liegt‘s am eingebauten Lautsprecher..?), doch die Spielbarkeit liegt erheblich höher. Die Sprites sind gut designed, alle Gegner der Urfassungen wurden übernommen. Zwar ist STRIDER auf dem CPC noch lange kein Hit, denn dafür ist auch bei dieser Fassung die Steuerung viel zu lahm und der Salto tödlich, doch darf sich der CPC rühmen, die bessere 8-Bit-Konvertierung abbekommen haben.
