The 3rd Birthday

AV Club
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Parasite Eve was one of the final games in Squaresoft’s golden age, a period in the 1990s when its creators’ pretensions hadn’t yet outpaced their ambitions. A retelling of a popular Japanese novel and film, the so-called “Cinematic RPG” was a mishmash of then-popular tropes and playful experimentation. Much as Parasite Eve embodied Square’s work of that era, the sequel, The 3rd Birthday , embodies the Square of 2011.

PSP Review – The 3rd Birthday

  • Summary: Find out if this birthday was a happy one…
  • Pros: +Good story punctuated by a great ending., +Square’s usual level of graphic/audio mastery
  • Cons: -Even if it did have better control and a vastly improved camera, the gameplay would only be so-so.  As is, it’s bad.

  • Conclusion: Parasite Eve -pelisarja oli alun perin puhdas kauhuroolipeli, mutta jo sarjan toinen osa vei painotusta enemmän toiminnan suuntaan. 3rd Birthday hylkää loputkin rippeet pelin roolipelitaustasta, ja se on tyyliltään lähes puhdasta räiskintää. Pelin alussa painajaismaiset hirviöt ovat vallanneet Manhattanin ja ainoastaan erikoisella kyvyllä siunattu Aya Brea pystyy pelastamaan tilanteen.
  • Pros: Peli on hienon näköinen
  • Cons: Kauhuroolipeli on muuttunut tylsäksi toimintapeliksi, taisteleminen on puuduttavaa, ääninäyttelijät kuulostavat kauheilta, pelin naiskuva on todella seksistinen
