Every month Xbox Live Gold subscribers get 4 free games and they’ve been stellar experiences for the past few month. However, will that trend continue in May? Today, Larry Hryb revealed next month’s Games with Gold and they include some fun titles. While the selection might not be as impactful as April’s, the games—especially on Xbox 360—are great.
Starting on May 1 gamers will be able to download Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. The Games with Gold are usually available a day early so you’ll probably be able to get them around 7 PM EDT on April 30. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is the latest iteration in a classic platforming franchise which focuses on playing levels with two characters, each with their own abilities. Some paths may be blocked in the “dream” realm which are open in the “nightmare” realm and vice versa. It’s quite an enjoyable and intense experience. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is the continuation of the first game and features improved visuals, controls and abilities. While the game may have been panned by critics when it came out all those years ago, it’s still a lot of fun if you love Star Wars.
May 16 brings additional titles which include Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. As always, they’ll probably be available at around 7 PM EDT on May 15. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a top-down shooter and puzzle hybrid which is a lot of fun. It also features online co-op so you can destroy ancient structures with a friend. What can be said about Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga that hasn’t already been said? It’s an amazing and hilarious game which is much better than Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. If you’re a Star Wars fan and own an Xbox One, then May is the month for you! Be sure to download all of these games on your console because even the Xbox 360 titles are backward compatible.
