Remember back in 1997 when Square Soft (now known as Square Enix) released Parasite Eve a lot of people were skeptical about it but wow, what an awesome game! Its been 11 years since the last game in this series (Parasite Eve 2) and alI I can say is it has been worth the wait :). Don’t worry new players to the series will understand what’s going on.
When starting a new game you get to see a really awesome CGI showing the Big Apple getting torn apart. You are quickly introduced to the series main hero Aya Brea and find out that a year has passed since the events of Parasite Eve 2. You are tasked with traveling back in time to prevent the outbreak from spreading.
I found the gameplay fairly smooth, but had a problem with the stiff controls. The newly added overdrive mode makes this game immensely more fun than its predecessors. Being a 3rd person shooter I thought it would be tricky on the psp but I was pleasantly mistaken.
Yet another title from Square Enix this year that’s been awesome! I highly recommend this game to all!
Game Score: 9/10
