Welcome to May, everyone! PlayStation is starting the month off right with a bunch of great games. Out today are two from Sony’s camp, from very different spectrums. First is Hot Shots Golf, a comical golf game that just happens to hide one of the best games of golf I’ve played since NES Golf. If you’re not a fan of cartoon characters in your sports simulations, stop being a shallow goof and check this out. You will not be disappointed.
For the non-sport minded folk, Square Soft and Sony come out of left field with one of the best ship shooters since UN Squadron on the Super Nintendo. Einhänder is a departure from Square’s robust RPG roots and is damn impressive. Imagine if Blade Runner had a baby with Gradius and then everyone in the family kept yelling German at you. It’s a short ride, but it’s a fantastic ride.
Come back in two days when we get a tactics RPG sequel!
