A look at why Parasite Eve needs a comeback 19 years later.
This game was right up there with resident evil, clock tower e.t.c as a true survival horror back in the day.
Clock Tower game me nightmares but in a good way. I know the game I'm about to mention doesn't belong in with these great game but I also loved nightmare Creatures!
Parasite Eve 2 was my favorite Ps1 game. Hopefully the teaser in the FFVII Remake means that Square is gonna make a third part or Remake the first game and make New York an open world environment. That would be sick.
Agree. 2 was awesome.
2 was awesome, but the first was also something. it has better RPG elements, imo. but yeah, PE2 is a legendary classic.
Yes. Agreed. I love this game PE2, played so many times cannot even count. Love PE1 also :)
Sony should work with square on rebooting this series.
I remember at the time I really wanted to have this game, but at that point I only had a Nintendo 64. It was a game I missed out on. But it was so enticing.
I loved these games back in the day! The first one really took me by surprise because I had no idea what kind of game it was other than an RPG, but it turned out to be so much more.
Only: 1) Square lost the rights to the original IP. 2) Square's become a bunch of graphic focused melodramatic hacks. Mind you, given that they are a bunch of graphic focused melodramatic hacks, they also exploit old IP's - in form anyway - relying on lore and fan-hype. So they're likely to try another 3rd Birthday. If you were into that.
depends if they can get the licence back. there's a reason the bad one was called The 3rd Birthday...
I'd agree with this. Give us a reboot/re-imagining of the first game that keeps a lot of the story/cutscenes and iconic fights.
I can still remember playing and enjoy this game.
Great game. Really tough, could not beat the final boss to save my life. I do prefer part 2 better.
I wish Square Enix revives this franchise. They could go the Dead Space route with more powers. I enjoyed PE2, though many people disliked it.
parasite Eve 2 was so so great and epic game , i will never forget it
Amen... but for the love of god don't pull a 3rd birthday. Devs are so dumb sometimes where they see an IP that people want, they gut everything that people loved about it out when they make a new game, and then shelve the IP because the new game didn't sell well.
They already did, look what happened to the PSP game.
A PE for PS4 it's like a dream come true.
