Strider is being developed by Double Helix Games

Crap. First Killer Instinct, now this.

Yeah, I was all excited about a new Strider game until I saw the developer's most recent work was Battleship. Seriously Capcom, you're trying to sell this to people with fond memories of Strider. Those people are going to be hardcore gamers that expect and demand quality. If you're going to just hand it to a shovelware team, you might as well not bother. Hell, WayForward's a multi-team studio, give it to them!

You can't always judge a studio by their previous games. Movie tie-ins, for example, have tiny budgets and ridiculously short dev cycles, in addition to creative limitations imposed by both the publisher and license owner(s). Even the best developers would struggle to make a good game under those conditions. There's a reason why every movie tie-in has sucked and why the more reputable studios have stayed away from them.

Now, I'm not saying that Strider will be any good but you shouldn't automatically assume that it's shovelware until you play it.
