Developed by Squaresoft, world-renowned creators of the hugely successful Final Fantasy series, Parasite Eve is a gruesome sci-fi adventure, based around the virus, Mitochondria. Although never released across European, Parasite Eve has been a massive success elsewhere. Be prepared for some of the most gruesome, unthinkably horrific sights you have ever seen, in one of the most graphic horror stories to date.

Parasite Eve is based on role-playing strategies, but has many close similarities to Capcom’s Resident Evil series. Mutant monsters are in abundance, and as a member of the NYPD, Aya (you) must go on a memorable adventure of survival horror across numerous locations to rid New York of the parasite, Mitochondria. Many of the classic role-playing elements are there, such as Levels, Hit Points, and other genre specific attributes. Combat is run in real-time using Square's infamous Active Battle System. Weapons, armour, and character specific abilities are all present and customisable. Once armed and ready, you will be set to take on the likes of mutant rats, monkeys, and other unimaginable monstrosities.

Regarded as a cross between Final Fantasy and Resident Evil by many hardcore gamers, Parasite Eve increases the horror ten-fold by using video footage as a means to demonstrate the virus’ devastating power before battle. Once played, visit the doctor for regular check ups, or live in fear for the rest of your lives.
