Parasite Eve II (???????? II) is a survival horror game for the PlayStation. The game was developed by Square and published in Japan in 1999 and in both North America and, unlike the previous game, in PAL regions in 2000. It is the sequel to the PlayStation console role-playing game Parasite Eve.
Parasite Eve II is set several years after the events in the original game. The protagonist from the first game, Aya Brea, also features in this game as the playable character. She becomes involved with another outbreak of Mitochondrial creatures. Gameplay diverges from the previous game: battles take place in real time and the area of action is less restrictive. The approach is more typical of traditional survival horror games, although some role-playing game elements are retained.
The game was well-received by the public and achieved high reviewer scores, although it was criticised for using a control system that was seen as being outdated.
