About the Product
- In the game, the player takes control of Strider Hiryu, a ninja-style warrior who must defeat a legendary being known as Grandmaster Meio. Meio has observed Earth from his dwelling in a far off galaxy, and has created a space station (known as "The Third Moon"), between Earth and its original moon in order to rule earth and continue observation. The year is 2048. Armed with a Cypher (a razor-sharp blade, wielded similarly to a tonfa which generates metal-cutting plasma) called Falchion, Hiryu must travel around the globe (including the Soviet Union and the Amazon Rainforest) to find and destroy the evil being. Throughout his travels, Hiryu encounters many power-ups, including robotic animals called "Options" (a hawk and a leopard) which help him defeat enemies. He also has the ability to latch onto walls and ceilings using a metallic hook an aspect which set the game apart from other platformers.

Insanely difficult game play.
A very rewarding game from start to finish, just expect a few "broken out of sheer frustration" controllers along the way.

It was great to relive a classic game from back in the day, but clean cartridges that play the first time you put them in are getting hard to come by.Published on February 26, 2013 by Brandon Reid
