Ruined everything. From what I was able to grasp from understanding the Japanese and the trailer, the game is based off of complete nonsense. Aya's soul broke and that's the twisted? My god, this is Kingdom Hearts. Up until the ending I didn't think it was very much like Parasite Eve, but as long as the story turned out okay I would be able to at least accept it as a game on its own. But the ending pretty much ruined that. So much for hints at things being related to "DNA." Square officially ruined Parasite Eve.
The game is okay. There are a lot of fun scenes and Eve as Aya isn't a terrible idea. But everything else about the ending was and makes no sense. I'm so mad. Definitely not buying the game new when it comes out in English, if at all.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that way. Though I didn't find the ending so much as confusing as just not something that should be anywhere near a PE game, spin off or not. --- I prefer Genaro's. But what do I know? I'm a bear. I suck the heads off fish! - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
It would have been better off as a new series with new characters. But more than that, it should have made sense. The ending just doesn't make sense. You can't just explain things as having some sort of magical basis without any explanation.
The story of the game is that someone was getting shot by a swat team at their wedding (for no reason?) then another person who loved them suddenly gained the power to jump into their body and possess them. Then that action, for whatever reason, broke their soul. Then for whatever reason, the pieces of their soul became monsters and destroyed NY.
Well, as far as I understood Eve rewritten the time in the end so there won't be any of the Twisted stuff at all. So the sequel may be something completely unrelated and the game may as well be forgotten (which many people will do, not that I'm blaming them). Though as I said in another topic, I'll still wait for the English version to read the database and other text stuff. --- I work on green tea
