The 3rd Birthday

Thunderbolt Games
8 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Aya Brea is a weak-willed dud. At least she is in The 3rd Birthday – a quasi-sequel to Square’s widely popular PSone Parasite Eve series. Gone is Detective Brea – a confident heroine focused on unraveling the mysteries surrounding an unfolding, Resident Evil-esque parasitic nightmare in a snow-covered New York City. In steps a highly-sexualized, whimpering mess of a “protagonist” who nearly single-handedly makes this game not worth playing.

I Can't Take It, Here in Hunger City

  • Excerpt: In some ways, it's hard to believe that it has been thirteen years since the original release of Parasite Eve . I read Hideaki Sena's novel years after playing the game, which let me appreciate both the type of horror story Sena attempted to tell, and Squaresoft's sequel interpretation. Many gamers loved the dark tale that both Parasite Eve 1 and 2 articulated, but believed that one more game was unforeseeable.

  • Conclusion: 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.

Tulevaisuus vaarassa

16 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Kolmannet synttärit ovat käytännössä eri genreä, eikä siksi ole nimetty suoraksi jatkoksi. Totutun selviytymiskauhun sijaan tarjolla on roolipelimaustettua, elokuvamaista räiskintää. Yhtä ka ...
  • Pros: Nätin elokuvamainen, Paremmat pomotaistelut, Hienon kilahtanut tarina
  • Cons: Itseään toistavat tusinataistelut, Kamerakontrollit

Test : The 3rd Birthday

Gamekult.com
18 May 2011
  • Summary: The 3rd Birthday fait partie de ces jeux où la forme finit par l'emporter sur le fond. Car il faut admettre que ce Parasite Eve sauce TPS peut vite sembler creux et monotone, entre un gameplay très assisté, un level design linéaire et un scénario abracadabrant qui ferait passer Kingdom Hearts pour un modèle de limpidité.
  • Pros: Réalisation impressionnante, Cinématiques soignées, Gameplay addictif, Aya
  • Cons: Action trop monotone, Des zones de flou dans le gameplay, Durée de vie légère, Scénario abracadabrant

The 3rd Birthday

Level 7
7 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Trots att elva år har gått sedan första spelet släpptes är det fortfarade bättre på nästan alla punkter. 3rd Birthday är däremot ett illa berättat, och tekniskt oinspirerat spel. Den skrattretande dialogen och det repetitiva upplägget dödar all motivering till att försöka ta till sig den handling som berättas. Square Enix fortsätter att skända serier jag hade stor respekt för i ungdomens dagar.
  • Pros: Snygga videosekvenser, Overdrive-funktionen kul att använda, Kort
  • Cons: Skrattretande usel dialog, Extremt repetitivt upplägg och strider, Oengagerande presentation, Oengagerande system för karaktärsutveckling, Kort
