    The game is literally bursting at the seams with computer-generated cinematic sequences, but, at the same time, abandons many of the elements we've come to expect after the company's past efforts. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, the game certainly isn't the best Square has delivered.
  2. A typical film tends to be fairly short, and Parasite Eve, in keeping with its cinematic inclinations, is no exception. Expect to finish the game all the way through in no more than 15 hours.

Because both games did not receive the mediocre reviews, the series has been dead for a number of years until now it's finally getting a well deserved new game for the PSP and hopefully the PS3. it started to grow on those that criticized this most underappriecated game of all time. Parasite Eve is one of the most original RPG Survival Horror hybrid I had the pleasure of playing. The story, music and characters may not be of a fantasy world but they capture a mirror reflection between the reality of New York City to a world unexplored. Full Review »

The story is one of the best in video game history. Only a few games impressed me as much as this masterpiece. The battle system is awesome. It is more action orientated (Vagrant Story with guns) but still kind of turn based. The characters and the setting are formidable. Overall this is the finest mixture of rpg and survival horror on the market. Full Review »
