The 3rd Birthday (PSP)

 

The 3rd Birthday is a follow-up to the Parasite Eve games of the late 1990s and early 2000s, but the choice not to call it Parasite Eve III is a telling one. This third-person action adventure represents something of a fresh start for the striking...

Parasite Eve gets a new entry over ten years later, and once again it's very different from its predecessors.

The 3rd Birthday is also pretty different from the previous games. Don’t be expecting to be able to explore anything in this game or interact much with the environment because this is not the “cinematic RPG” you may have been expecting. It's a 3rd...

In an interesting approach, I am taking a step back and reviewing a game that was released nearly a year ago on the PSP. We never got a chance to review The 3rd Birthday on our site...

New Vita controls ; Fantastic music ; Still holds up on Vita

Camera can feel loose ; Some battles feel disappointing

Aya Brea is pretty...

Gorgeous and not just by portable standards; Control makes perfect sense; Story is interesting, easy to follow

No real reason for most to play through again; Difficulty bounces too much in odd places

And ultimately that is my biggest complaint about 3rd Birthday. I wished they had taken the time to ease gamers into a system that's brand new in all aspects. It feels like they pushed too hard to redefine the series entirely. From a newcomer's...

A note to anybody who lives in (or plans on visiting) New York City: If you ever find yourself standing next to Aya Brea while waiting for the subway, then it's time to catch the next ride out of there. When it comes to weird supernatural events taking...

With its impressive visuals and compelling storytelling, The 3rd Birthday is an exciting new chapter in the Parasite Eve series. Too bad the game is marred by stiff controls, frustrating gameplay and cheap bosses. If you can get past these hiccups...

The 3rd Birthday is the third installment of the Parasite Eve franchise from Square Enix. The games themselves are based off of a Japanese novel dealing with special powers coming from the mitochondria in our cells and the next stage of human...

Good looking game ; Lots of replayabiltiy ; Some cool ideas

Doesn't feel like a Parasite Eve game ; Not a great story

The 3rd Birthday is a pretty good title to pick up. It may not feel like a Parasite Eve game, but that isn’t that big of an issue. Its a pretty game with tight controls and some fun combat moves like the Overdive. It however isn’t that great of a story...

Blast-And-Run

A simple yet polished, no frills PSP shooter

A mire of frustrating controls and incomprehensible plot

Ten years is a long time in videogames, and nowhere is this more evident than in the game's cinematics. Even on the original Playstation, Parasite Eve's cutscenes were anything but primitive, but on Sony's handheld it's clear how far the series'...

The Parasite Eve games, developed by Squaresoft, blend elements of survival horror with those of traditional RPGs. After an eleven year hiatus following the release of Parasite Eve II Aya Brea is back in this ?cinematic action RPG? for the PlayStation...

The 3rd Birthday is a fun and reasonably well-made game that, unfortunately, attempts to do too many things to do any of them terribly well.

I was a big fan of the original Parasite Eve. It remains one of my favorite games of all time. And while PE2 adopted a real-time mechanic and made it feel too much like Resident Evil, I still enjoyed myself. Therefore, I've been looking forward to The...

The Ugly: “Yup, dead again. Way to go, cutie.”
