    Strider: the Digital Foundry verdict....

    demo available on PSN for PS4, can't find ONE on Xbox LIVE.

    Anyone with love for old-school 2D action games simply must play Strider. As an adaption of a classic franchise into a "Metroidvania"-style action game, Strider is a smashing success with some of the most responsive and fast-paced action platforming we've experienced in a long, long time. After various lukewarm attempts at reviving narrative-driven franchises, both Strider and Killer Instinct demonstrate precisely where Double Helix's strengths lie. With the company recently being acquired by Amazon to supposedly work on a new Android-based platform, Strider might just be its last major console game release. If that's the case, it's a shame it only just managed to find its footing before leaving the traditional console space.


    When it comes to selecting which version of Strider to play, we have to recommend sticking to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC versions of the game. While the game was competently ported to Xbox 360 and PS3, the lower frame-rate does hurt playability somewhat. Between the other three platforms it's safe to say that all three are excellent performers that never drop a frame during gameplay. For owners of all three platforms it's worth keeping in mind the strange texture filtering issue on PS4, which does reduce image quality just a touch from the XO and PC versions of the game. In the end, though, any of these three versions of the game provides a polished, highly enjoyable experience.

    Strider is the new benchmark. lol Seriously though DF said they think ithe texture filtering thing is a bug so I think it will most likely be patched. But until then Xbone gets it first face off win even if only slightly.
