If you are/was a Playstation (PSX) gamer you might heard/played the legendary title Parasite Eve, a strategy-action RPG game about living organism mutated into zombie-alike. The 3rd Birthday PSP game is the sequel to Parasite Eve story following Aya Brea, a special agent who has unique gen sent to execute missions related to all mutated-creature things.

Different with its predecessor Parasite Eve, The 3rd Birthday is change the game main focus. While Parasite Eve games are heavily packed with RPG and fantasy elements (fire, ice, poison), The 3rd Birthday PSP game is more focused as a shooter-action and science fiction game. I think that's the main reason Square Enix didn't named it as Parastive Eve 3, because the gameplay are completely different.

The most interesting gameplay element that I found unique in this game is the "Overdive". On The 3rd Birthday PSP game Aya has special ability to doing an Overdive, an operation to enter and take control other people subconscious in the past.

Aya was chosen as the executor in overdive mission from her special gen, from her experience in the past fighting mutated monsters. Now she must return to the past in overdive mission to investigate the origin appearance of Twister, a new race of the mutated living things.
