Product Description

Three years ago, gamers were introduced to Aya as she resigned from the New York Police Department and enlisted as a NMC (neo-mitochondrion creature) hunter for the shadowy government organization M.I.S.T., a secret agency of monster slayers somewhere between Ghostbusters and Men in Black. Wherever there was a neo-mitochondrion outbreak, Aya and her team were on the scene to put the boots to the mutants. From the outset, it's evident that SquareSoft revamped the entire game to give gamers a better looking, sounding, and (most importantly) playing experience.

The game starts with Aya training in the agency's shooting gallery in Los Angeles. Just as she begins to get in a groove, she is asked to look into some strange happenings at the Akropolis Tower. When she arrives on the scene, an explosive, full-motion video flashes across the screen and showcases the death and carnage as Aya surveys the scene. Her entry into the Tower is where this RPG begins.

SquareSoft has kept some of the excellent elements of the weapons systems from the first Parasite Eve title, but went for an entirely new battle system. Combat is delivered in real time and allows players to run, hide, and open fire. Aya can tap into her parasitic powers and can unleash elemental, magic-based attacks on the many foes she encounters. Ammunition is plentiful in the game and there are plenty of entertaining weapons to choose from. Auto targeting and involving puzzles are back, though the arrow-pointing interface for solving these puzzles is really hard to operate.

The cinematic mix of story and action is very well done, and the numerous cutscenes do an excellent job of moving the pace along in a believable way.

Even though the original Parasite Eve had its problems, SquareSoft has pieced together an excellent sequel that will satisfy fans of the first game and he

Customer Reviews:

  • Bear the patience for an "annoying" survival horror.
    Parasite Eve II took longer localisation than other Square titles like "Vagrant Story" and "Chrono Cross",yet the title is a great dissapointment as if it takes only some few months for the process.I'll brief on pros and bummers on this title

    Pros: -Sharp pre-rendered backgrounds(like RE) -Some of the most memorable stunning FMVs(sorry,Aya's not completely nude,guys!) -lots of weapons -replayability last longer

    Bummers: -Freakish controls -Storage system annoying unlike RE.Expect loads of repetitive trips to load/unload items and buy weapons -FMVs too little,not memorable as PE I -boring music score -[poor]translation(please,Square,not on FFIX! )

    That is all of my brief review.Overall,not much to expect of this title,expect it like a B-graded game....more info

  • Good as a stand alone title--Terrible as a sequel
    Straight to the point, the series started off as a chilling and entertaining RPG with an real time battle flare and ended up as a Resident Evil cloned sequel.

    The series could have ended with the first Parasite Eve, but Squaresoft decided to continue the series.

    What resulted was a sequel who's only tie to the original is really the main character and the use of her Parasite Energy.

    Take Aya Brea, Resident Evil style gameplay, and her parasite abilities and you basically have Parasite Eve II. Its Resident Evil with special powers. That can go one of two ways--look at it as a stand alone game or survival horror game if you like, love, or are interested in the Resident Evil series; or, you can hate, loathe, dislike, or bear it as the terrible sequel that surfaced.

    On the plus side, the interactive environments are a nice touch as they create a strategic approach in battles. You can find all kinds of weaponry to find the best possible way to deal with bosses. The Parasite Abilities mentioned above do add some strategy to the game as well.

    Its a tough call. As stated before, you either love it as a STAND ALONE title or hate is as a SEQUEL.

    Breakdown-

    Good:
    -Gameplay
    -Graphics
    -Cutscenes
    -Stand Alone title

    Bad:
    -Sequel
    -Nothing Like its predecessor
    -Storyline
    -Characters

    Question:
    -What made Squaresoft decide to go with a Resident Evil style approach?...more info
  • not bad!
    i believe that parasite eve 2 is an awesome game. i haven't exactly beaten the game yet, but so far it has been amazing! the video graphics are sweet. i've only had a few minor problems with the game, mainly the camra angle when i fight some enemies. sometimes i can't even see the enemy in the screen for a short time. one of my favorite things about the game is the assortment of weapons i like em' all. the storyline is also great. i'd recommend this game to anybody....more info
  • Parasite Eve 2
    In all my time as a video gamer, I have never been so disappointed. The original Parasite Eve, although not perfect, was a fun, quirky title that took the survival horror genre in a different direction. Most every game element could be customized, the weapons and armor being a personal favorite. The storyline kept me hooked, the graphics were great (unlike another Square overhyped title, FFVII), the pre-rendered backgrounds were nice and moody and the music was outstanding. I still listen to the soundtrack on occasion. Also the Parasite powers should be mentioned. Akin to magic spells in traditional RPG's, they were powerful and showed what Square could do. Now, enter this travesty. They took an already stellar game and turned it into another bad Resident Evil clone. Character controls became typical of the RE series. If they were going to go that far, why not use the same weapon controls as well? Why change it to the insipid system they decided on? Personally, I liked the dome from the first game. Camera angles are more abusive in this title than the last one. The freedom of customizing weapons is also a thing of the past. All that can be done now is an attachment here or there, like flashlights or a flame thrower. And the parasite powers, one of the more powerful abilities in the first game, are now the weakest in this one. Oh, how I miss the Liberate ability. Also, what's up with that armor attachments? Hope your planning strategy for necessary items in battle is better than mine. Or at least hope you don't mind continuous reloads after dying. Graphically, there are few complaints. Square has managed to push the Playstation to even better heights. Backgrounds move and are more interactive. (The first part as Aya walks up to the Akropolis tower is stunning.) Music is also alright, although nothing like the first one. Story is my last complaint. It was a high point in the first game. Story in this title is generic at best. Like comparisons of Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter. Story in MGS was integral to the game. Syphon Filters was more of an afterthought. Squaresoft impressed me with Parasite Eve and Final Fantasy VIII. It has disappointed me with this game and Final Fantasy VII. It's batting 2 for 2 so far. Rates like that would get one kicked off any decent baseball team. I hope something better is around the corner....more info
  • Look out for the wall!!!
    Good: Graphics

    Bad: Gameplay/Sound

    Unknown: Plot

    The graphics were pretty good, crisp, high detail, a bit dark though.

    Gameplay, unfortunately, is terrible. I've never before played with 1st person controls (up-forward, left-turn left, right-turn right, down-back) and a fixed camera. Now I know why. When dodging matters, this control scheme fails horrendously. Running into the wall while trying to dodge because I can't see what direction I'm facing isn't a challenge, it's frustrating. Now for cameras. Cameras were usually WAAAAAY too close to the action, resulting in shooting at and dodging things you never even see. Good thing for the radar. And on to targetting. The "selection" targetting by holding down the target button and selecting with controller is pointless. If you aren't firing, you had probably better be moving. Had this "stopped" time, it would have been a good feature, but as it is, useless. The default "closest" targetting was often buggy, especially in long corridors. One instance in particular in a long corridor I was constantly switching between two monsters WAY offscreen, (not even in radar, finally ran down and realized what I was targetting), while a creature right next to me was hitting me. Now for music. Was there music? I never noticed. The music in the original struck me as very creepy, and added to the mood tremendously. I can't even say for sure that there IS music in PEII.

    As for Plot, I really can't say, as I haven't and don't plan on finishing the game, even after having completed the first disk. To a certain extent the plot can't be that good, If I don't want to continue playing... but the interface is soooo bad that it could just be I have no desire to plod through a poor game, regardless of how good the plot is, or may turn out to be.

    Now, a note to developers: Making a game difficult by having monsters move fast, take a lot of hits, hit hard and think smart makes a game challenging. Making a game difficult by having terrible camera angles and difficult controls simply makes a game frustrating. There IS a difference.

    Finally, I'd like to say that PE 1 was a MUCH better game, and I'm gonna have to ask my sister for it back....more info

  • Why didn't I buy this so long ago?
    This is one of those games that I look back and and wonder why the hell I never went out and bought this when I had the money. I never personally finished the first game, but starting the sequel from scratch didn't leave me confused at all.
    This was one of the first RPGs I played that allowed you to move around and dodge enemy attacks. I didn't feel like I was just sitting around waiting for my action gauge to fill up anymore, I was actually doing something.
    Dunno about paying $80 for a new copy, but I certainly don't mind paying $40 for it, even if it is used....more info
  • spooky
    First of all I'd like to start by saying I really enjoyed playing this game. You start the game as Aya a member of M.I.S.T on the trail of some of the most ugliest monsters,I myself have ever seen,in the hope of totaly wiping them of the face off the face of the earth. The graphices are brilliant alround,and weaponry is bought on the b.p system (bounty points). But what game could be complete with out a little magic thrown in. Aya brings with her the ability to use parasite eve magic, which in turn helps with killing the hords of monsters thoughout the game.I my opinion the game is a must have for any true playsation and/or survival horror fan. thumbs-up to SQUARESOFT...more info
  • This Game Sucks
    When I first bought Parasite Eve for Playstation, I was amazed at how great the game was, how well it played, how great the stroyline was and how much fun it was to play. Then I heard they made a sequel. It is not at all like the original. The controls and battle system are messed up, the story [stinks], and it is annoying to play. Square really blew it with this one. If they make a Parasite Eve 3 they better go back to basics....more info
  • TWO MITOCHONDRION FLAMIN THUMBS UP!
    First off the first game was awsome. Although anyone without a game shark probably couldnt make it past the burner this one was far better. The graphics and cinematics are the best ever. And the plot is so awsome. But i don't wanna spoil it for you, my recomendation is BUY THIS GAME!And buy it here....more info
  • Parasite Eve 2 is that fire
    this game is gangster,this game makes me angry sometimes,with the stupid dog zombies that takes 20 hits to kill,like you dig when you trying to figure out a puzzle and you keep running into these Stone Cold Steve Austin looking Dogs,the graphics are tight you dig,you got these powers,see what im saying? the worst thing on this game,is when your fighting 3 zombies dogs at the same time, see what im saying? just run like mug. but sometimes you'll have to fight them,see thats that phoney, these monsters are stupid,see you dig on RE(Resident Evil) the monsters on RE are fun to kill,on PE(Parasite Eve) these monsters its best just to run.but heh heh i forgot you'll have to kill them to get your points up to get stronger are you'll have no chance. see what im saying?...more info
  • Not anywhere near as good as the first....
    I played the original Parasite Eve non-stop when I purchased it, with the first day of owning it proudly conquering it. Immediately I started a second game and to this day have played through the game at least 20 times.
    So when the sequel was announced, I gladly paid [$$] for the purchase. I went home and started playing, similarly to the excessive level of the original. However, Parasite Eve had taken a new "spin" and it was now basically "Parasite Evil."
    Parasite Eve 2 abandons the RPG elements of the first game, and replaces that of Survival Horror (possibly to compete with Capcom or Konami whom had made loads of money with Resident Evil and Silent Hill respectively). The core fan base of the original game were RPG gamers whom purchased the game based on the Sqauresoft logo and spread the word that the game was actually good. With the drastic changes to the gameplay, Square those fans and the game was a critical flop.
    Parastie Eve 2 is not really a "bad" game, there are easily a large amount of worse games, however as you play through it you can't really tell what kind of game you are playing and that gets a bit irritating/confusing.
    Overall the game fails to fix some of the blatant flaws of the first game, and some new additions add new flaws (control) to the gameplay that can not be overlooked this time around....more info
  • Why are you all complaining about the battle system?
    Okay, I admit that I haven't played this game before but I watched my sister-in-law play once, and my question to all of you who had complained about the battle system... what are you complaining about that for? It was a great improvement over the first PE, it's easy to maneuver around... you don't have to get stuck in a little dome thing with the enemy, but now you can even run away from it! I just wanted to prove my point in the best way of explaining these kind of things....more info
  • Ummm......What in the World has Square done here?!?
    PE1 was VERY good, In my opinion, it had great movement, battle system, weapons, and it didn't leave you all twisted up into a little ball trying to figure out what to do next.

    PE2 ahem....What the heck happened to Aya? She got all pudgy and the graphics got worse and the movement is painfully slow. You don't get the suspense where in PE1 you'd turn a corner and then there was a heartbeat and you'd be like "Holy Crap!" But in PE2 you're all like "How come my hp is going down? Oh another monster?" And it's like you didn't know when you entered the cafeteria that the woman was all the sudden turning into some bloody monster? In other words, IT IS NOT WORTH PLAYING, GET FF8 OR PLAY PE1!!!!!...more info

  • FINALLY a decent battle system
    I loved the first game. Great premise and nifty graphics made for an enjoyable gameplay environment (remember the "Museum of Natural History" level? classic!) However, the one thing I couldn't stand was the battle system. "Shoot at monsters, run around trying to dodge them while your attack bar recharges, shoot again, etc." It was a bit frustrating and really slowed down the pace of the game.

    Well, gamers rejoice, because the new battle system is REAL TIME. you use the target button to cycle through the enemies, fire, run, and dodge in real time. The only time the game pauses is when you choose a parasite spell to cast or access an item in your inventory. The first level is too easy, but it gets progressively tougher as it goes along. The weapons and armor don't seem to have as many customizable attributes as in the first game, and the Liberate and Pre-raise spells are gone *sniff*. However, the new combat system and graphics are well worth the trade off. It is rather a Resident Evil clone in several ways, most notably character navigation and camera angles. I'll be the first to admit that the whole RE-static background style of gaming is getting stale. However, the puzzles are much more sensible and the levels more intriguing. Bottom line, This game is a keeper....more info

  • How Fun?
    This Game Is Action Packed And Has A Lot Of Puzzles!...more info
  • A good game although a little to long and hard. Anonamous 22
    This game is very good and the monsters and weapons are cooler than the first one. The first one is slightly better though. Although this game is worth buying, I would insist on getting either Threads of Fate or Legend of Dragoon first. It might even be worth waiting for Chrono Cross....more info

  • Parasite Eve 2: The Mitochondria Strike Back
    Guess what? They're back. The evil mitochondria from the first PE have shown up and this time they're crashing the party in Los Angeles. To top it off Aya is back. Is it just me or is she a little bigger (as in chubbier) and has bleached white hair. Making a return appearance is Eve, only this time she is a sweet innocent little girl. Lets get to it. The game is a very interesting hybrid. It is an RPG mixed with action, strategy, and plays like Resident Evil. This gives it some strengths and some glaring weaknesses. The strengths: the major strength lies in the battle system. It is real-time, so move your whatever or it will get knocked down, action. You move, shot and reload all while your enemy is sneaking up on you. It makes the game play like Resident Evil basically. The magic system has been revamped as well. Instead of gaining spells as you gain levels (levels have been done away with entirely), you gain experience in battle and use it to invoke the spells (12 in !all). The spells follow the fire, earth, wind, and water elements so you can figure out which element's abilities are. Trite isn't it. The controls have also been fine-tuned but can still be quite maddening. This occurs when ever you need to haul [...] fast, like in the Reactor battle. Sometimes it is just easier to use the digital controls instead of the analog. The negatives include the story, or rather the dialouge. The dialouge seems like it was written by a second grader that knew some big words. It's sad really, the first Parasite Eve was written very well. The only saving grace are Aya thoughts. These come up whenever she looks at items and the background. In one such example she looks at a toilet once and says "Wow that's a nice toilet." Look at it again and she says "dear God I need to get out more." Some rather humorous things can be found by analyzing everything till she repeats herself (well I thought they were humorous). The other negative is this massive problem !I have with so-called goverment conspiricies in video games (and the world in general). They may happen in real life but they always seem tacked on in video games, and this game reeks with them. The games main part happens in Area 252 in Nevada while Aya looks for UFOs relating to NMC activity. Can anyone say Area 51? I almost got sick of watching the scenes in the White House, and is it just me or did Clinton call Aya "very attractive?" (Get the best ending if you need explaination.) The story would of been much better if it was handled by the same group that did Vagrant Story. Now there was a good story and awe-inspiring dialouge. Also, this isn't the silent era anymore. If a game is described as a cinematic RPG (like PE and PE2) it should have real voice everywhere, not just one worders here and there. The game Koudelka isn't a cinematic RPG and everything except item describtions is spoken (rather well too). PE2 would have been much better with voice acting, even if it !would mean adding a third disk because of memory limitations. Well with that said. My recommendation is to get the game if you can overlook the flaws. Just make sure that you get the player's guide too. It is almost impossible to get the best ending without it....more info
  • Parasite Eve 2...Overall A Kick Azz Game
    Ok First Off The Cinema In This Game Is UNREAL it just looks so cool ive never seen cinema in a playstation game that good its just awesome. Then a scare element...kinda skiddish but there is some pretty weird stuff in this game. But anyway the story is also very very very indepth you go from place to place i like that becasue in most games your in one place the whole time and that really sux..you know what i mean so basically i luv the parasite series and cant wait for a new game SQUARE SOFT YOU ROCK!...more info
  • Are we playing a different game?
    I read all of the reviews for Parasite Eve II and found a huge conflict in opinion. My question is, are we playing a differnt game or something? Personally, I found PE II to be a great game. I do see one problem with the marketing of the game, which puts it into the RPG class when I think it is more like a Horror Survival game (Resident Evil series, Dino Crisis, etc.)so maybe that is where the conflict lies. Otherwise, I just don't see what all the fuss is about.

    PE II is an improvement over the orginal in that the controls are much easier and the real battle system is more engaging (literally) and and makes the game more interesting overall. There is the occasional problem with the camera angle getting in the way, but name one game of this type that doesn't have this issue. I also read a good number of complaints regarding the storyline of the game. Face it folks, few games even have a storyline, let alone one as extensive as the PE series. Yes, PE II's storyline is different from the original which is why it is a sequel...what did you expect the exact same storyline? The exact same characters...the exact same GAME?

    PE II stands alone, yet it is closely associated to the original at least as far as the basics go. The movie sequences are outstanding and the overall movement is more fluid as well. My advice for those having problems controlling the character movement...stop using the stick...go back to the directional pad, its much easier. Character movement is VERY similar to the Resident Evil games and after just a few minutes, you'll get the hang of it. For RPG fans, the character control is probably much easier than some of the other games your used to...half the buttons are not even used. As for the story line, Parasite Eve may have been more interesting and unique but Squaresoft did a good job of expanding on the basics and improving the game battle sequences and control issues that were glaringly evident in the original game.

    If you still aren't sure about buying this game now, I would advise that you rent it first. If you liked PE, chances are you'll like PE II. You're likely to appreciate it for its advancements (movie sequences, real time battle, easier control, etc.)and get sucked into this game as well....more info

  • THE SECOND PICK WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST
    When I completed the first game I ever played on my Play Station, I found myself at a loss. Something was missing in my life. Another game to play. I was in a children's store and found myself looking at the games up on the wall that were available. I don't know why but I picked PARASITE EVE 11. I had never heard of it or knew what it was about.
    What a wonderful surprise to find that I had chosen a gem (In my oppinion). So far, I'd have to say that PARASITE EVE 11 is by far my favorite of what I have played so far.
    I found it to be challenging and exciting to play. This game will remain in my archives for future playing. I really enjoyed it and will not give it up.
    As always, when a good game comes to an end there is the need to seek out another. I rented PARASITE EVE. Needless to say, it went back to Blockbusters immediately. It was just awful especially compared to PARASITE EVE 11. How can a company make one game great and the other terrible.
    Well, I'm not here to knocked another game but since it is in the same family a comparison was in order.
    PARASITE EVE 11 is just wonderful playing....more info
  • not a good game
    i just recently purchase parasite eve 2 for 20 dallars and i didn't really like the game the first 20 minute of playing, i say that the cutcsence(movie)was preety awsome,i didn't play thou the whole game to know the storyline.. and i was surrprised bout the fcs, but i didn't like it because, to me i think it is trying to be like resident evil,and they realy did something with the control's (character movement) it was hard to control her. (the turning). how the characterlook it's alright, the text i didn't like,i mean compare this to the first parasite eve game. it's a whole lot better than parsite eve 2. wut a waste of my 20 dallar's...more info
  • A must have for any Squaresoft fan!
    A terrific sequal to the first Parasite Eve. This game has a lot more to discover, and has a lot of plot twists. It's a great buy for anyone who has played the previous game, if not, I'd play te original, then consider this one....more info
  • big loss
    the game doesnt play at all , the disc had too much scratch, the post said it has good condition, it didnt i am very disapointed...more info
  • Great game with bad control
    Well I have just started and have completed the first day. So far I do enjoy it very much and consider it to be even more creepy and surprising than the first. Beautiful graphics and cinema interludes. I have been startled already a few times and if you have a home theatre system you had better utilize it as it greatly adds to the effect. Looks like another involved and complex story unravels as the game moves along.Now we discuss control. This part is very bad and leaves me a bit unsettled. You find yourself running in to things trying to get used to the direction Aya is going. You run in a zig zag direction and I know that as the game and battles get harder this is going to be a major problem. This is why I passed up buying Silent Hill. This is very poor control and I see no reason to have it this way. I am a die hard Parasite Eve fan so I will make do and so will other fans but if you did not play the first or did not care for it then pass and go on to something else. If you are a fan like me you will have to put up with this so I do recommend this but to die hard fans of the first only....more info
  • Good but not Great
    Parasite Eve 2 removed everything that was wrong with the first one but left only one thing that i couldn't get over. Controlling Aya was a pain, I thought this was really the only down point of the game. I like how there was no leveling up or active time bar to wait to shoot.Also The graphics are awesome and the story will entertain.

    However I did enjoy Parasite Eve 1 better than 2. Overall this is a very good game and does a good job on continuing the microchondria eve story.

    Not Resident Evil. Although it may seem a lot alike, its not. This game is a little easier and has what I think a little bit of a better story than Resident Evil, there is some fact behind the whole microchondria eve where as Zombies are always used to try and scare. ...more info
  • Parasite Eve 2 ROCKS!
    I have just finished playing this game and I loved it. The story was good, it kept me guessing as to what would happen next. The graphics were real good as was the sound. As far as the weapons, nice assortment with plenty of ammo for the cool guns like the M4A1.Even the monsters were really cool, and some I really hated fighting because they are tough(those damn chasers are the worst to fight).

    I have heard a lot of talk about how "bad" the control is. Let me tell you I had no problems with the control or the camera angles. Basic movement is the same as Resident Evil, if you have played those games. Camera angles werent bad either, only a couple times did I have a problem with the camera, and they were minor problems. The realtime fighting is a lot better than the first game, and the targeting feature was nice also. Maybe some people had trouble with control, but I had none.

    If you played the first Parasite Eve, I highly recommend PE2. I hope squaresoft makes a PE3 for the PS2, they have a good series going here....more info

  • Truly a good game
    I rented the game got stuck with the game(it's so cool) and the overdue wiped out my wallet.well anyway the game is is fun if you like shooting and RPG like games theres a lot of puzzles in it.and the battle mode gets hard since it's real time.the first level is like a training level it's realy easy second of all FF8 players will love this when you beat the game with enough points and do replay mode you can get the gunblade (squalls weapon in FF8)and with demolithon ammo in it time it right and it can do up to 3,000 HP thats a heck of a lot in this game get the game you won't be disapointed....more info
  • what the ...??
    man this is a poor game i bought it, played it for an hour and thought this cant be it but it is... theres no voice acting so the atmosphere is cack and the battle system is really bad. a game like this relies on gut feeling and instincts, not to be told how much hp was taken off the player should not be told. The cut scenes are good and the camera at the beginning (i sold it after that) was reasonably good. This game just feels like a sub-par resident evil. Even the graphics are not upto resie standards the developers didnt use pre renders like capcom so the areas look ok at best. The enemies are reasonably well animated and look solid enough but dont provide the visual oomph that resie's deadites do. You shouild be able to see the flesh hanging off them but nope. Whats with the rpg elements too? Again it detracts from the atmosphere when you recieve bp or whatever from kills and use it to upgrade, it just doesnt work and feels tacked on. If they were goimg to do something like this then they could have ,made it at least a bit more in-depth like other rpgs. There are many faults to this game and all add up to a below standard rpg/action type thing. not good at all. If you're wanting survival horro best check out resident evil 2....more info
