About This Game

The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterised the Lost Planet series return, harsher than ever before. Lost Planet 3 reveals new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history of E.D.N. III.

Lost Planet 3 introduces Jim Peyton, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) who are preparing the planet for colonisation, Jim joins his fellow pioneers at the Coronis base and begins surveying the uncharted terrain and obtaining samples of the planet’s energy supply – Thermal Energy.

With NEVEC’s existing Thermal Energy reserve running low the fate of the Coronis mission depends on the natural source of the energy supply being located. Realising that this is a great opportunity for a huge pay-off and early ticket home to his family, Jim braves the risk of the treacherous environment and threat of the indigenous Akrid.
Acting as a home away from home and boasting an array of tools that can assist Jim on the field, the utility rig provides Jim’s safety and is essential not only for his contract work but also his protection against the ever-changing climate.

Lost Planet 3 will deliver a diverse range of gameplay including on-foot battles and intense first person action. With a number of multiplayer modes and a compelling single player experience, Lost Planet 3 will delve deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique and dynamic environment of E.D.N. III.

A hollow shell of the first two games, with ♥♥♥♥♥♥ robots, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ story, and ♥♥♥♥♥♥ fighting. How you ♥♥♥♥ up the fun of piloting the mechs when it was fine in the first two is beyond me.

I enjoyed the game for its story and the on foot-mech mechanics.
THe enviroment althouh on an ice planet, where nice, and seemed dangerous. The enemies where a bit repetitive and shooting the humans was not very fun.
Great use of fast travel, avoiding some serious boring backtrack, props to that.

Not the greatest shooter, but story and feel is very well put, if you slog through some shooting repetitive parts.

I recently looked at my stats for this game and noticed that it had been on my account for over 2 years so I decided to get on and do a playthrough. I just completed the campaign and came away happy that I'd finally played and completed it, It has it's faults, For example I found the combat both in and out of the loader to be inprecise but it could be forgiven that due to it's attributes. The games a great looker that's full of amazing set pieces and many well done cut-scenes, They do wonders for helping put the story across and it keeps you engrossed through to the end.

I'll rate the overall score as a 7 out of 10 and based on the fact that the game is a few years old and can be had fairly cheap during the sales I think it's a must buy for anyone who hasn't played it before. If that's you grab it in a sale you won't regret it.

Lost Planet 3 is a really cool game, had a lot of fun, it offers around 10-15 hours of campaign, its not boring in any way, there are many different enemies you will encounter and boss fights are not that schematic as i was expecting, views are amazing,great mechanics and variety of weaponry to choose wrapped up with a great story.Although game is well optimized(1080p maxed out >60fps on 960) it has some issues with steam, i was kicked to menu because game had problem connecting with steam or something, didnt lost any progress but i sure was tilted a bit.
Only one thing bugs me, i dont know if it was only my problem but cutscenes were in low resolution(i would say around 360-480p) and it looked weird.
It was worth my time although i would not recommend doing side-quests, they are boring and repetetive(kill X, go X).
10/10 would skip side quests again

I checked all the negative posts and watched out for the bugs that were mentioned while playing the campaign. And personally I really enjoyed it I litterally only ran into one bug and it was very minor and very temporary without needing a restart. Overall I'd give this game a ten out of ten mostly because I think it had a good story loved the gameplay. And found it surprisingly challenging. The only things I would probably complain about is the lack of enemy types and that no one is giving the multiplayer a chance. I tried out a co-op survival mode in the multiplayer with just myself and I rather enjoyed it just wished more people couldve been on so it would be more fun. Back to what I was saying about enemy types sure there's like only 15 or so total enemy types but their done pretty well none of them are too weak and pretty much all of them can potentially kill the player. As for people complaining about the enemies being bullet spounges thats how it's been since the first game I would know because I've played the orignal lost planet and most enemies are bullet spounges on that too.

But much like with this game the amount of bullets it takes depends on the strength of the weapon and pretty much all of them can get some sort of upgrade which sadly upgrades were not a thing in the original game. And I would have to say that this is very much not a lost planet game because there was so many changes done to the game play that sets it too far apart from the first lost planet game. How ever as far as a third person action shooter that takes place in the same universe as lost planet I'd have to say it does very well for itself. And honestly I'm kinda looking forward to any possible sequels of lost planet or games in general done by the same team in the future. If you were to ask me if I would recomend this to any friends I'd say definately yes.

A very generic third person shooter, with extremely predicatable (and forgettable) plot and characters. Interesting setting and scenery, it got a few inspired missions (the first colony ones) that manage to capture pretty well the "dead space" atmosphere but for the rest it's quite dull. The level desing is extremely linear, i guess they really wanted to make sure the player couldn't get confused or lost, all the boss fights can be summarized in "shoot the glowing parts".

In the end the game isn't terrible, but it also lack anything thay would made it worth your time.

PS: those reviews that claim it had good plot/characters are completely wrong, the plot makes little to no sense, and it's little more than an excuse for the protagonist to "save the day" an avarage of 3 times a day, the characters are so predictable you can say what their "arch" will be after their second line.

Technically and visually it's a good game, the gameplay however might turn you off.

The biggest problem of this game is that it's very different from the previous games and really boring. It's basically a Dead Space clone.

The game is slow-paced in contrast to LP1 and 2, you got to walk a slow big robot for miles which becomes repetitive and it takes long time sometimes.

Multiplayer is dead, and no co-op!

Your arsenal are limited, few weapons, but they are customizable and upgradable plus some grenades and other toys.

If you care about the story more than gameplay, i recommend you to give it a try. If you are like me that dislike walking slowly around the world then you might think twice about this game.

6/10

Giving a thumbs down to LP3 feels painful. It's got a lot of heart. The animations, the graphics, the voice acting, it's all wonderfully cinematic, and it's a loose sci-fi blue collar theme, with space contractors in a space wasteland planet trying to do science in the face of aliens everywhere. Your dude is a bearded contractor who gets messages from his wife and country music plays in his giant robot. Gamers in general don't see much manual labor so it's always nice to see stories that focus on that sort of hard work. That said, thematically, it's a bit of an odd mix since your average mission is to "go fix X, okay, all done? Good, now get back to the robot and march back oh wait there's 400 aliens between you and your robot. And this isn't a problem at all." What was the want ad for this? Space engineer, must be able to perform QTE repairs while shooting 4000 aliens. Still, they want it to work so bad, they fill this story with real heart.

But for all the glitz and polish it's just not that much fun. You walk places and walk some more then get in a robot and walk places with slow robot clomping and FINALLY you get to dive roll and shoot aliens and that part is actually kinda fun in a low budget Red Faction Armageddon sense but then you get to walk back and talk some more and walk and walk and climb and it's all just such a waste of time and then they expect you to go back to earlier locations for some dumb sidequests and there's just no way, no how.

It's clear the man hours went into this game that should, by the book, have created a solid fun, but forgettable AAA game. But the talent somehow didn't make its way to the final product. And it's a shame because so much love went into this but it just was not enough.

I would have watched the movie of this.
