[Mansbros] Parasite Eve Retro Review

It is Christmas Eve in New York City. Aya Brea, a strong rookie detective working for the NYPD, is at an opera with her date at Carnegie Hall. Everything seems normal during the show until a horrific scene happens. (Parasite Eve, PS3)

One of my favorite games of all time. About to run through it again. Square should really bring this series to PS3, at least make 3rd Birthday HD.

Even though it's a huge bummer 3rd Birthday was a portable title, it's crazy how amazing it looks. If Square wants to do remakes, do the 1st Parasite Eve with updated visuals. I'd be lovin' that!

I hope they kinda redo the story of 3rd Birthday cause that story was "LOLWut!?" kinda feeling to it. Not surprising cause guess who wrote that atrosity of a story....

If it wasn't for Tabata's directing that story could've ruined Aya's legacy forever, even though *SPOILER*

You are actually playing as Eve throughout the game, that was my understanding of the plot.

Nevertheless, I just want some Parasite Eve on PS3. HD remake, PSN release, $20.

Although I'd rather have PE4, but I'll take what I can get.

I heard the story was less than stellar but more Aya (even if it isn't her) can't be a bad thing.

Yeah i would love to see more Aya as well but with a story not written by Toriyama. I swear that guy can't direct games or write stories at all.

Also we are talking about Squarenix, so I am not holding my breath for a HD game of Parasite Eve....unless you add the number 13 to the end of that title than maybe.

And Toriyama has this weird habit of adding time-travel to games that never had time-travel in them.

If a new Parasite Eve game is made, I hope it goes back to being about monsters, mitochondria and mutations. Not...time-travel. D:

don't know what gives it away but I really love parasite eve, I pray to god they do a third PE or give to another developer. Aya brea is just a stunning character in the first PE and has such a unique visual design when compared to other female characters.

beat the game last week such epicness
next is vagrant story :)

This game's so awesome! I beat it last month in one sitting. And yeah, that's its main flaw, it's too short!

Parasite Eve was my first PS1 game and because it came with a FF8 demo I ended up buying it too.

A Masterpiece of gaming in my opinion ~

A Legendary title that Deserve to be milked more than Final fantasy .

Personally i enjoyed PE 2 more, it was the best RPG/Survival Horror hybrid i have played, altough the first one is amazing too (And balls hard).
