Parasite Eve Reviews

Parasite Eve

A chilling adventure that could only come from the creators of Final Fantasy VIIAn epic sci-fi tale told through stunning 3D rendered sequencesBattle mutant monsters in real-time polygon combatCustomize weapons, armor, and character abilitiesincludes 1998 Collector's CD with previews of Final Fantasy VIII and other hot upcoming titles.
Set in modern-day New York City, PARASITE EVE puts the player in the role of NYPD officer Aya Brea as she attempts to solve the mystery of Eve, a young woman responsible for a string of gruesome deaths and accidents in the city. Transformed by self aware mitochondria, Eve possesses the power to mutate animals into brutal killing machines, spontaneously ignite the innocent, and generally make a mess of everything she comes in contact with. PARASITE EVE is a cinematic RPG from the master of the genre, Squaresoft.Parasite Eve tells 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 Eve is 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
