A sidescroller where you control a samurai-esque character. The game starts off with two attacks and the jump button - as you progress and defeat bosses more movements are introduced. Everything just feels very slick, polished, and futuristic, the controls are responsive and it is easy to land attacks on your ennemies no matter what you are doing, you can gradually change your direction in mid-air, you can hook onto just about any surface and everything looks way cool. Game gives a greate sense of empowerement through and through. Very nice sci fi anime look to everything.

Pure, unadulterated jump n' slash fun. Solid platforming/level design and the bosses feel great to beat (although they may be a bit on the easy side). The story is pretty generic and the voice acting ranges from "Mega Man 8" to "mediocre", but I doubt anyone's considering this game for the amazing story and the gripping cutscenes.

Hits all the right notes, while on normal it may be not all that difficult it still provides the right level of fun. The combat flows nicely and the Metroidvania elements add extra appeal to this hack and slash. If you've enjoy Dust: An Elysian Tale or Mark of the Ninja you'll likely enjoy this game as well. With a good sundtrack and great art direction keep the game never out stays its welcome clocking in around 5-7 hrs. If you gather all the items and complete all the challenge modes you're looking upwards to 20hrs though. It's worth the price but if you're still not convinced pick it up on a sale. I doubt this will be a purchase you'll regret.

Feel like you're the most badass and epic ninja ever when you're just button mashing.

I've never played vintage Strider so i cannot testify how true it is to the original, but this game stands pretty well enough on its own.
