The 3rd Birthday
So this is actually the 3rd game in the series( Parasite Eve ), but from what ive seen in the previews, its taking a step away from the original games (on the PSX).
Graphics look wayy too good to be true, but than again, this is square we are talking about.
Hopefully just as good as the original.
Im sure Square will keep the storyline similar to before.
Thanks for this, cant wait.
I just Had to buy it because I love Aya Brea!
Okay so for Christmas, My bf was kind enough to get me the japanese version of The 3rd Birthday and had them shipped fast so as soon as it was out (Dec 22 2009 in Japan) it would come here before christmas and yes, I got it! The game is awesome, I would describe the gameplay like KH series where it is action RPG?? Except better! I know that people kept talking about how it should of been on PS3 but PSP isn't bad at all. Of course the graphic isn't any close to PS3 system but I have no complaints about them. But I would warn you...... it is quit sad game so be prepared.... Other than that, I would give this game a 10 and Hope that you guys would enjoy as much as I did as soon as the game comes out here in U.S.! Have fun :]
I'm Excited For This
I've been a long-time fan of the Parasite Eve series, I still play both I and II on a monthly basis because it's a great series.
Although The 3rd Birthday doesn't follow the storyline of the original and take it a little off track, the fact that Aya Brea is getting a new game makes it worth while.
From Aya switching minds and places with others, and having a new system to learn, it seems like the game play is going to be great and I look forward to it.
I'm excited to try and figure out if Aya was going to be marrying Kyle. Wonder how it's going to go down.
Fun, confusing and pretty short : T
What looks like a complex game (Or at least I thought it did) is a simple and addicting game! The Overdive and DNA board were quite entertaining, there might be more that I haven't really covered every inch though... The game starts out with simple enemies and bosses while later on it requires a little more than just shooting, which can get a little frustrating I guess. As for the story... well for the most part it's easy to follow, Aya can go to the past and through people's bodies and is part of the CTI (Look it up) But later on I found my self lost and confused @_@ The ending was way more confusing (My opinion mind you) Other than that the game is pretty looking and addictive, but really short. If you really wanted to, you could beat it in about 6-7 hours if you play your cards right. But!! That doesn't include the new game plus stuff (Which I just started on) Either way, I would highly recommend to anyone who owns a PSP
Great game but frustrating.
I absolutely love this game but I only had two major issues one of them of course being on my own account. The first was that there seemed to be a huge back story that I should be aware of that of course is my own fault. But they way the game starts I was expecting a bit of an explanation but it was basically here are the characters here is how you play. Enjoy! My second problem was that during most boss fights the game puts you in a tedious lose/lose situation. Where the boss kills all the possible bodies you could use and the utterly destroys you with no way to hide or defend. I am a huge SE fan but I will admit they have a history of doing this to their players.
Aya Brea's Finally Back
Aya's back and the parasite eve series looks better than ever... gameplay and cutscreens look awesome but my only real worry is that this is the first of the Parasite eve series to get voice actors..and it seems like games in this genre that originate in Japanese language and get translated to English seem to end up with some clunky translation or 'phoned in' voice acting.
If you were into PE, you'll like this game!
When I saw that this was coming out, I was like "please be for the PS3". But it was for the PSP. So I went out and bought a 3000 just so I could play this game. That is how much I liked the old one. Love nostalgia & I was surfing around the PS store and found out you can get the original PE for the PSP too! SWEET! Getting back to this game though, it's superfun. I read all the bad reviews, but didn't care and found out that those people aren't right. Guess everyone has their own opinion, but I really enjoy the game-play,graphics,and sound. So far the story isn't bad either. Its pretty fun, especially about an hour into it.P.S.-I bought the guide with it, but I'm not gonna use it until I beat it once through on my own
I'v been waiting for this game since they released info about it in 07. I pre-ordered my copy a couple weeks ago! Iv been a fan of Parasite Eve since the first game came out, it's about time they brought our lovely Aya back!
I have a feeling this game is going to be good. also they need to release the original Parasite eve games on psn. that would be nice and a total buy for me.also i might get this if i have the money .
This game is surprisingly addicting and excellent for a short game.
