Parasite Eve 2 now on PSN

Every so often we get the chance to buy something we already purchased in 2000. This one, however, is totally worth it. Parasite Eve 2 is now available for PSP and PS3 via the PlayStation Network, and the port appears to be strictly loyal to the original version, except for its price, which is only $5.99 on PSN. If you don't have a working PS2 or — for whatever reason — missed PE2 the first time round, check it out. We'd link to our retro-review that gives it a great score, but we don't have one because nobody reads those things.

Parasite Eve 2 is a rare survival-horror and role-playing mash up, telling the story of Aya Brea, a former NYPD officer who survived the PE1's Mitochondrion crisis in NY. After the events of the first game, Aya moves to LA and joins the FBI's Mitochondrion Investigation and Suppression unit, where — wouldn't you know it — everything goes to hell again. A new breed of Neo Mitochondrial creatures emerge, and Aya must stop them using both a mana pool that grows as she gains experience and grenade launchers.

    I think this is a rare instance of the EU actually getting something on the Store first for a change. Bought it a while go, been thoroughly enjoying it. Though the controls have admittedly not aged as well as the rest of the game.

    It's a PS1 title. Also, not nearly as good as the original and (most problematically) lacking in the original's wicked battle system.

    6$? That's rather cheap, considering most of Square's RPGs have been re-released at 10$. This is definitely a bargain, and I may pick this and the original up soon.

    I was so excited when I saw this just an hour ago. I had it for my PS2 but it got water damaged and the booklet and case stuck to the disks. The price for it every where else is outrageous. defiantly one of my favorite Playstation games.

    I downloaded it about a minute ago,but thanks for the heads-up all the same.
