    And now, a comparison of Strider vs. Journey from Darkness: Strider Returns, courtesy of sickosonparade.com's Lord Vermin:

    Strider: Moves like a ninja.
    Strider Returns: Responds like a stoned lard ass.

    Strider: Diverse stages.
    Strider Returns: Same old shit.

    Strider: Raked in the jack.
    Strider Returns: Takes it up the crack.

    Strider: Great music & sound.
    Strider Returns: Sounds like the MD version of an ape simultaneously farting into a kazoo and puking on a MIDI keyboard.

    Strider: Fun to play.
    Strider Returns: Please God, make it stop.

    Strider: Cut scenes.
    Strider Returns: Butt scenes.

    Strider: Smooth as glass.
    Strider Returns: Like swimming through liquid shit.

    Strider: Slick like Santana.
    Strider Returns: Sucks my banana.

    Strider: Deserved a good sequel.
    Strider Returns: Got this instead.

    This game for me was a disappointment.
    5/10

    I don't know if you know, but theres a interview with Allan Findlay, the programmer of this version, that it explains how the development was in , but the most interesting of this interview is that information that exist a complete version never released of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game for the SEGA Mega Drive!


    "Indiana Jones 4 - Fate of Atlantis for Megadrive at Tiertex. Unreleased."

    "Indy Jones 3 (The Last Crusade) had been done by Tiertex at the same time as I did Strider 2. They wanted a more adventure-like game for the 4th, I had to play the PC point-and-click version a fair bit to get some idea what they wanted. It was going to be platform-y, a bit like Indy 3 but bigger levels and you could collect items and combine them on a pop up menu system. There was also an isometric level where you were searching through a desert town, going into buildings etc.

    It was looking pretty nice but they weren't happy and it got shelved and as far as I am aware it was never released."

    VISUAL SHOCK!
    SPEED SHOCK!
    SOUND SHOCK!

    Oh man this thread gave me some laughs! I actually cried laughing at one point so thanks for that guys.

    I've never actually played this game because as a kid, and although I was a huge fan of the original, I'd heard that this 'sequel' was pretty damn terrible and really nothing like the first Strider. I'd seen screenshots of it in magazines and I can remember thinking "Well, it looks the same." So, as I've never played it, I've always been curious as to just how different it was and just how bad it was. Not curious enough to go and buy it you understand but curious nonetheless. So, is it really that bad?
