The 3rd Birthday
I had the original parasite eve back in the day ,beat it//lol..great game,got parasite eve 2..still working on it..i have this for my psp and i just bought it for my vita,cause this game is outstanding.I gave this a 10 rating,i cant seem to find but only one complaint ,and that would be the excessive tutorial reading in the start of game,But its worth reading it all to get you familiarized with game.The graphics on this game are insane on my psp and vita.It looked even better than i expected on the vita.This is one of the best shooters i have ever played in my opinion.Get it,,hot chick ,with a gun and alot to shoot..LOl...awsome
Awesome game but..
The game its self is fun and the story is great, the graphics blew me away. Square Enix really out did themselves with this "parasite Eve" but once at the end of the game (Spoiler Alert!) it just keeps repeating its self, don't get me wrong, i beat the game 28 time and i still don't get bored of it.
Lived Up To My Expectations
It's a great game with a tragic name. I'm working on my 10th play through the game and still loving it. The controls play a bit like Syphon Filter for PSP. Graphics are really good and although the voice acting is sketchy, you really get submersed in the characters. There are tons of items to unlock keeping replay value high. It's not too long, not too short and the cinematic scenes are unbelievable.
F is for FAIL!
What a let down. I will give this game props for having great graphics and decent gameplay, but that's it. THIS IS NOT PARASITE EVE. This is a 3rd person shooter/rpg hosed down in Parasite Eve juice. Remember how Super Mario Bros 2 was a totally different game with Mario sprites swapped in to make it sell in the US? Same deal. Character names are likenesses are the ONLY connection to the previous games of the series. You don't even need to know that the parasite eve series EXISTS to play this game. Aside from some backstory in the game's manual, that's the only time it comes up. What we have here is a new game trying to ride the coattails of a previously successful series, with fan service elements thrown in to increase sales. As you fight, the character's clothing is ripped and torn until she's pretty much in her underwear. As an added feature there are unlockable outfits with statistically all suck and only serve to let you further ogle "Aya." As a final touch, you can unlock a CGI shower scene (not 18+) if you achieve a certain hidden goal each level. Save yourself some time and look for it on youtube. There is almost no reason to play this more than once, and the entire game can be played through in about 4 hours.
great graphics soundtrack and gameplay. play parasite eve 1 and 2 before touching this game otherwise you will have no clue whats going on
hard 2 play but uts the bomb i never seen so good graphics on the psp
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.
Ok - so here we have yet another franchise title that is so far removed from the foundation that made it a hit. I am so tired of game companies using franchise names and characters to get their followers to pay for junk titles.
If you were a fan of Parasite Eve 1 and 2, do not buy this game. It makes some feeble attempts to make a connection to the original storyline, but falls flat on its face at the end.
If you like shooters with a sci-fi/horror element, and know nothing about Parasite Eve, then it may be for you. Even then, rent it, don't buy it.
What a great game
This game is addicting. This is one the best psp games that I have purchased.
