  1. Parasite Eve has been one of the only RPGs since Final Fantasy 7 to genuinely deserve any kind of hype, or at least anticipation.

    Parasite Eve will leave you thrilled, chilled, and a little hungry, but it’s well worth the price of admission.
  3. As an RPG there are very few characters in PE, however the lack of characters is more of a feature than a bug since it gives you a closer tie to the few main characters and more of a role in guiding their destiny.
  4. It's a full scale epic that completely engulfs you from the off and squeezes out so many different emotions that after a long stint, you're left wondering whether you really do like it or not. [JPN Import]

  6. While the game isn't terrible, it is a bit of a let down. With all of the sci-fi qualities that could have been implemented, it is a shade disappointing to see that the story didn't go as far as it could have.

The graphics, even for the time, leave something to be desired in terms of human character models. This is made up for however, by fantastic art direction and creature design that rival the works of Stan Winston.and Rob bottin. The combat is where the game really shines. Expand

    This is A DEMO. A demo that I would argue and say it's better than the game it went on to be.

    Gran idea. Mala ejecucion.
    La falta de rejugabilidad, los combates tediosos y que requieren mas suerte que estrategia, el inventario limitado, subir de nivel y que los stats apenas suban y la dificultad desbalanceada hacen de parasite eve un juego muy malo.
    Encima no entiendo los encuentros aleatorios, es decir que mier... esas probabilidades al super azar!
