The 3rd Birthday Review

22 March 2012
  • Excerpt: 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...
  • Pros: + New Vita controls, + Fantastic music, + Still holds up on Vita
  • Cons: Camera can feel loose, Some battles feel disappointing

  • 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.

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

The 3rd Birthday

Defunct Games
23 May 2011
  • 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! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

  • 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.

The 3rd Birthday

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: Back in my PS1 days, I loved Parasite Eve. My friends were more into Metal Gear Solid, the Final Fantasy games and Xenogears, but Parasite Eve remained a personal favorite. It combined a lot of what I loved about the emerging survival horror genre with the turn- and time-based fights of traditional RPGs – only with a heavier emphasis on the action.

  • Excerpt: Am I playing this on the PlayStation 3? However silly and deranged that sounds, it was my first thought when I began 3rd Birthday . I'm not one to begin a critique raving about how gorgeous a game is, but it's stunning (not just Aya mind you) and-as I said-could rival some games available on the more powerful hardware in Sony's line-up. That seems to be the one thing Square has done flawlessly-the mechanics of the game.
