When I was counting my PS2 titles there I noted that I still have Parasite Eve 2 for the PS One. Had a quick swatch on eBay for the original because I'm pretty damn sure it never got a release over here in the UK, which I find a little curious since the sequel did. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I remember playing the original NTSC version at a friend's house years ago, but don't ever recall seeing it anywhere over here with a PAL conversion.

i can confirm that

Parasite Eve (splendid game, really enjoyed it) did not get a PAL UK release, regrettably.........i did own an import that my sis bought for me whilst holidaying in the US.....it was whilst buying the UK version of PE2 that i enquired as to why the original had no UK release

shop guy had no idea why :jmp:

shame the PS2 never got an update or follow up though :(

I thought as much. Cheers Agent 47, guess I'll have to snap up a US import copy. And very much agreed, an outing on some of the current hardware would have been very nice indeed.

Isn't Parasite Eve the one with the two women who are supposed to be lesbians? :D

Edit - Just Googled it, it's not the same game, but now I can't remember the one I mean and it's bugging me :vlol:

That's it! Thanks 47, you've just saved me from spending the next God-knows-how-many hours trying to confirm that I hadn't gone mad :D Was it any good, BTW? It looked like a bit of a one-trick pony to be honest :D

I love that damn game..the original is in my top 10. No points for sordid lesbian encounters there but we'll always have..

the sequel! Ooh err Missus!

The original is well worth picking up, ace..an absolute classic. Sequel is fun too but the vision went way out there and I wasn't loving the futuristic angle.
