I got this game when it was first released back when it was $75, I think it was one of the first days of its release. Now you can pick it up for $20 I believe. Quite a find for the price also, if I do say so myself. I remember the commercials ''The worse foe lies within the self'' I believe they said, but then on the actual game it said something else. I dunno, grand game though it is!

Definitely a good one. Parasite Eve has a deep and complex plot which requires attention much like that of an anime. Parasite Eve has to do with the structure of animal cells and what could possibly happen if they had too much heat and energy. It also has to do with the biological relations of Aya and Eve in the game and the effects it has on their reactions to the energy. This game is really interesting, you have to play it for yourself to know what I mean. The graphics in the game were quite impressive, I can remember, the first time I played it, and they are still quite nice to look at now too. The sounds in the game are really eerie. The bg sounds... It sets a mood for the atmosphere of the game. I also like how you could run around and shoot what you were attacking, but your weapon could only reach so far and such. Added a bit of a challenge to it. The only bad thing, though, is sometimes when you're fighting the fighting area can be a bit cramped in some fights; I think that it is intentionally like that though to add for difficulty. You'll definitely have fun playing through this one! A right masterpiece! ^.^

First off, this game is by Atlus, so of course itís going to offer something fresh. This game is so cutesy and fun, and itís available portably for the Nintendo DS. The DS seems like a perfect platform for more point-and-click titles and I was really excited when I was first reading about this one, despite its mixed re...

Another new developer takes a shot at making a Silent Hill title, Double Helix. Do they bring in the support of hardcore fans of the series, or do they disappoint? Well, I wouldn't exactly call myself a "hardcore fan" of the series, but I am a pretty big fan of it. I think that this game is one of the more playable gam...

Ok, can I just say one thing? Wow. Just... Wow. This game is a lot better than I thought it was going to be, to be completely honest. I mean, there were so many people talking about how this game was going to be so different from the other ones, that it would completely change the series. Well, I don't think it complet...
