  1. A masterful game. It is a game with non-stop action and can be pretty tough at times. All of this is combined with just enough of a brainwork requirement to make this game more interactive, hence more enjoyable.

    The graphics in Einhander are stunning. Before this I'd never seen 3D move so swiftly...Great graphics, high difficulty, lots of secrets, breathtaking CG, variety, and a killer soundtrack. There is honestly nothing more than I want out of a shooter than Einhander gives.
  3. Einhander is one of those games you never want to get rid of, because no matter how good you think you are, it's always a challenge. Combined with the audio and visual elements of this game, Einhander is nothing short of a great gaming experience!
  4. "Einhander" is German for "awesome 2D shooter that should have sold way more that it did." That, or "one-handed." We're not sure. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    The foot-tapping techno music tracks accompany each stage perfectly, and the sound effects shine with a plethora of explosions and other sounds of destruction.
  6. Great graphics, tight control, amazing sound.
  7. And while the fruit of its efforts may not be the miracle this genre needs for a complete revival, it's just about as good as shooters get.

    This game is great. I first played it in 2000 on the PS1 and I've played it every now and then since then.

    Costs a pretty penny if you want

    Costs a pretty penny if you want to buy it nowadays.

Personally, I think this game has great playability and is full of action. Although a little slow, Einhander adds a dimension of gameplay that is not easily utilized. On another note, this game is unique in its own way, so classifying it by genre is already pitting it against games that are almost completely different. Expand
