One of the best games I've played

This game is great. Aya rocks. A woman with a gun is always dangerous. Moving Aya is a bit bothersome but manageable. The graphics are really good and the story, though confusing at the beginning, is extremely interesting. It is a great game to play.

      Parasite Eve was a great game for it's time. It was one of those games you just had to play to understand why it was so good. With its many weapons, abilities and a great story, it's no wonder so many people like this great gem. Now without further ado I give you, a Parasite Eve review.                  Story   The story of P.E is where this game really shined for me. Its suspenseful, action-packed …

About this video game

Wiki

Parasite Evetells the story of Aya Brea of the NYPD on a case involving mass spontaneous human combustion, mutating animals, and the mitochondria revolution. Sound fun? Confusing?Parasite Eveis both.

It begins when Aya is attending an opera at Carnegie Hall. The soloist bursts into song and the audience bursts into flames. Somehow, Aya is the only attendee who isn't affected. Not surprisingly, she wants to know what's going on. This curiosity, coupled with her duties as a police officer, grows into a full-scale investigation.

Parasite Eve's mechanics are simple, yet elegant. From combat to level advancement, the game runs easily and smoothly, making it ideal for someone new to role-playing games (RPGs). Experienced RPGers should still enjoy it for its brilliant storyline.

Technically speaking, the game's graphics and sound are good, but not spectacular. The full-motion cutscenes are superbly done. Parasite Eve is a good game--there's just not enough of it. While it doesn't feel crammed together, the story seems to resolve quickly. Brilliant while it lasted, Parasite Eve left me wanting more. --John Cocking

Pros:

  • Mutating dogs
  • Involving storyline
  • Elegant game mechanics
Cons:
  • Too short, and it's confusing
