What Gamespot Users have to say about Einhander

  • Review Score:9.5

    A One of a Kind.

    If Blade Runner was a video game, this would be the closest thing to it. When I first saw this game CD, I thought "What is Einhander?" I popped it in the gray block of greatness that is Playstation, and from then on, it ... Read Full Review

    It wasn't Gradius but it was Einhander that got me into this type of genre!

    In all honesty I have no clue whatsoever who the hell was that guy in gamespot reviewing this game nor if he even had any idea what he was doing when rating this masterpiece. You see, in an era dominated by final fantasy... Read Full Review

    A very excellent space shooter game from the creators of the Final Fantasy series.

    When people think of a space shooter game, Gradius or Raiden will usually come out of their minds. But there is one space shooter game that most people has probably never heard of. Einhander was release by Squaresoft (no... Read Full Review

    Intense action, beautiful graphics, and tight controls makes Einhander into one very impressive side-scrolling shooter.

    Side scrolling shooters, on any system, are fewer and far between these days, so when a high-quality title comes along it must be given notice, and Einhänder is one of these titles. With beautifully rendered polygons, he... Read Full Review

    One of the BEST 3D shooter EVER

    This is a 3D shooter in a "2Dish" perspective because the camera angle changes from time to time creating a cool cinematic effect. First of all the graphics are one of the best on the playstation. The game also... Read Full Review

    An excellent shooter. A real challenge.

    Square has added to their forte an excellent shooter. It's as frantic a shooter that you will ever play. For those of you who remember the old 80's Midway game Robotron, this reminds me of the whole "thrown into the fi... Read Full Review

    A solid and enjoyable 2D shooter, it's also one of Squares best obscure games.

    Einhander (there are 2 dots horizontally placed above the “a”) for the Play Station can be called an “experiment” by Square; it was released in 1997 in Japan and 1998 in North America. As it was coming from Square (it wa... Read Full Review

    SHOOT! SHOOT! DODGE~! Fly like mad and blast up Earth in this gem for the PS1.

    Now, I'm not very partial to these type of side-scrolling flying-shooter arcade games........okay maybe I am. This game reinforces that! Einhänder pits the Earth vs. the Moon in a futuristic war. However, the Moo... Read Full Review
