  • Pros: + New Vita controls, + Fantastic music, + Still holds up on Vita
  • Cons: Camera can feel loose, Some battles feel disappointing

The 3rd Birthday – Staff Review

RandomNPC
11 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Long feared to be a dead series, the announcement of The 3rd Birthday caused no small amount of surprise and delight amongst fans of Parasite Eve . Unfortunately, the finished product cannot be said to have the same effect. Featuring an overcomplicated mess of a plot, suicidal AI, and an actively hateful interface, The 3rd Birthday has fundamental issues that really prevent it from being enjoyable.

Blast to the Past!

  • Excerpt: The 3rd Birthday (T3B) as you may have guessed is the third installment in the Parasite Eve (PE) series. For the longest time I had assumed that the Parasite Eve franchise was long and dead. Evidently Square had some other plans though for our good friend Aya Brea. T3B has a deep story that is filled with twists and turns that fans of the RPG genre will love.

The 3rd Birthday

Playstation Illustrated
11 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Wow. This is still a thing, huh? I have been hearing talk of The 3rd Birthday for years now and I was starting to get suspicious if it would ever come out. In what was supposed to be a sequel of sorts to the Parasite Eve franchise, The 3rd Birthday drops any mention of it's former franchise, but still recounts the events leading up to the cult PSOne classic.

Review: The 3rd Birthday (Sony PSP)

Diehard GameFAN
11 June 2011
  • Summary: As a standalone game, The 3rd Birthday is an enjoyable shooter. But as part of the Parasite Eve series (even if there’s no Parasite Eve in the title, it’s still borrowing characters and concepts from there), it could have been better. The plot could’ve unfolded better, characters could’ve been fleshed out more, and more of the events could’ve been actually depicted instead of relegated into datalogs.

  • Conclusion: The entire story.
  • Pros: Blowing up Twisted with an orbital laser satellite.
  • Cons: Spending five minutes waiting for a soldier to appear with the only weapon that can hurt a monster —only to watch him immediately die before you can swap to him.

Test The 3rd Birthday

Generation NT
27 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Au niveau graphisme, on tutoie encore une fois un rendu PS2 et les cinématiques (en CG ou utilisant le moteur du jeu) sauront vous en mettre plein la vue. Rien de neuf pour un titre de ce calibre signé Square Enix mais on est tout de même bien content que cette tradition soit respectée ici. Après coup, il vous apparaîtra aussi avec regret que les décors restent un peu toujours dans le même ton.
  • Pros: Aya Brea, une femme que l'on n'oublie pas, Réalisation d'ensemble en béton, Excellent système de combat, On s'amuse bien avec la matrice ADN, Une ambiance musicale réussie
  • Cons: Tout en anglais, sauf le packaging, Assez difficile même en mode normal, Scénario pas totalement convainquant, Kyle, Absence de configuration complète des commandes..., ... alors qu'il n'est pas pratique de manipuler la caméra tout en se déplaçant

  • Summary: 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 you'll discover another worthwhile PSP game! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
