What Gamespot Users have to say about Strider 2

  • User Rating:6.8

    Not as good as the original, but still fun albeit a bit short.

    The story line is hackneyed and pasted together with crazy glue and spinkles. The Action is linear and 2D when it could've been so much more. In the end, Capcom really dropped the ball with this one. It's fun, but too sh... Read Full Review

    Even though this game is relatively old, it still packs a formidable punch. It fits perfectly into the fighting style of old Capcom games. A constant rush, repeated flying punches and a few special movies at your disposa... Read Full Review
