    Its twisted, mystic plot, cinematic visuals, and excellent surround sound make The 3rd Birthday worth being played twice

    Rated on April 12, 2012 by VintAge68

    Hard Game with Confusing Story

    Rated on July 26, 2012 by pokecharm

    When I first saw the trailer for this game, I was fascinated. I bought my PSP on a whim (thank you Metal Gear Solid) and don't get the chance to play it all that often. I look forward to PSP exclusi...

    Disappointing.

    The 3rd Birthday controls well and has gorgeous graphics, but falls flat in the story and gets repetitive quickly.

    Rated on July 25, 2013 by ivory_soul

    The Good: Excellent graphics, tight shooting mechanics, lots of customization, the diving aspect of combat is unique The Bad: Platforming is bad, overly linear, difficulty is unfair, gets repetitiv...

    The 3rd Birthday'll teach you to fear the Reaper.

    Rated on July 25, 2013 by Spinnerweb

    The 3rd Birthday was one of the PSP games for which I actually counted the days before its release. This third entry into the Parasite Eve franchise has been a long time coming, because the previous P...
