Time flies when you're having fun.
In any case, with summer racing toward us and spring in full bloom, Sony's added another slew of games to its list of freebies. There's at least one game I really love in this list, and another that I think you should play even though I didn't like it all that much.
Here are all the free games coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita in May. As with April, I'm only providing OpenCritic scores for the PS4 titles.
Free PS4 Games
Beyond Two Souls (72% on OpenCritic)
Rayman Legends (91% on OpenCritic)
Free PS3 Games
Risen 3: Titan Lords
Free PS Vita Games
King Oddball, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS4)
Furmins, PS Vita
Beyond Two Souls
Beyond Two Souls was a pretty disappointing game in my opinion. It was hamfisted in the worst way, a pretentious mess that prioritized artsy storytelling over gameplay and failed at both. But for the very attractive price of free I still recommend you play it. Maybe you'll like it! Maybe you'll just get a kick out of how unintentionally silly it is at times. It's very short, so why not? It's also coming from the same studio behind Detroit: Become Human, which launches this May.
Rayman Legends, on the other hand, is a wonderful platformer. You can play solo or with a friend (couch co-op) and it's just a zany spectacle of sound and color. There are some incredibly challenging sections as well, so it's no walk in the park. Ubisoft's UbiArts engine is put to marvelous use here, and it's just one of those games that if I didn't already own it I'd be downloading it right now.
All told, I still think Microsoft's free Xbox Games With Gold line-up for May is better than Sony's offerings, but this is still nothing to sniff at. Both Sony and Microsoft have had some great months lately, which is surprising given how often they give away garbage games. Sony released Bloodborne for free the other month, which was quite possibly the best free game they've ever given to PS+ subscribers.
