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.

This isn't a Lost Planet game, this is an attempt at a resident evil 6 set in another world.
It loses all the good features from lost planet 1 and 2 (healing harmoniser, free grapple, 3rd person mechs) and replaces them with really uncomfortable crawling sections, massive walking sections and little interesting sections. I'm struggling to keep playing the game as I just keep getting bored of trecking back to base, talking to someone, being sent out again and walking again to the next checkpoint.

Can I recommend this as a Lost Planet game? No. God no.
Can I recommend this as a Capcom game? Well it plays on the western tropes you'd expect, so I mean if you're really bored and like the look of snow go for it.

For the $1 i paid through humble bundle, worth! I wish i could at least try the multiplayer ONCE! Sadly no one to be found at all! The little bit of campaign so far that i played is decent and the charcters are unique. I dont recomend at all if you want it for multiplayer, couldnt find a single soul when i tried, (Ginger attack?) Get it on sale for a "chill" campaign. kek

It was decent. Much better than LP1, and way better than that crap they passed off as LP2.

Pick it up when it's on sale at a deep discount.

I do not know why this has mixed reviews. I never played the series, but the story is nice. Missions can be repetitive, but I am used to grinding for Thermo Energy. It gets slow at first imo, but thats when the plot point hits. Multiplayer is also awesome. 9/10, no need DLCs. even though I got em.

This game really fell off the rails of the series... feels very western compared to the first two. Clunky controls, useless abilities and upgrades, repetitive rehashed fights, quick time events, button mashing... it's pretty bad. The story is decent, but feels rushed, leaving many plot holes and empty spaces in the story where it seems some scenes were simply left unfinished. But what is there for a story is good. The acting was also superb for a video game. Overall, I only recommend this game for fans of the series who absolutely have to play it... it's bearable.

How this received a "Mixed" rating is absolutely beyond me, the game is incredible and I'm struggling to understand why it got panned so hard in reviews on Steam.

*shrugs*

This was a joy to play from start to finish, with a stellar story, great VA, and enjoyable combat. I could write several paragraphs on why I enjoyed it but honestly, it's 3 years old now so I doubt many people care -- needless to say, if you enjoy third-person shooters, stomping around in huge mechs, and gunning down thousands of enemies with the backing of a fantastic story, you can do a whole lot worse than Lost Planet 3. It's not a perfect game by any means, the audio balance is out of whack, there's altogether too much backtracking (albeit made easier with a 1/4-mid game fast travel system) and there's too many crawl/crouch sections for my tastes, but all in all; a damned fine game that is *criminally* underrated by the gaming public.

This and Dead Space 3 \o/

note: every other game i have reviewed has recieved a serious review, this is not a serious review

Lost plant 1 and 2 were fantastic games. They had really cool mechanics which gave them loads of personaity. Lost planet 3 removed a large part of what gave the series its personality. If lost planet 3 is your introduction to the lost planet series you might like it, but if you played the previvous lost planet then you'll probably dislike lost planet 3. The game does not have free use of the grapple hook and does not implement the thermal energy health system what so ever. rip lost planet and ♥♥♥ u capcom

I seriously don't know why it has such bad reviews.

I've played lost planet: extreme condition eons ago and loved the story and the combat mixed between a 3rd person shooter and a VS mechwarrior simulator. And this game did not disappoint.

Let's go over the game.

Story
The story was not bad. You're a engineer/technician of sorts that harvests Thermal Energy and fix up the base. After getting accustomed to the job, you start discovering the planet's secrets. The story goes through many phases from the pseudo-horror abandoned base, to the survival element of the various frozen settings, to a thriller cat and mouse between the various factions. The story is very coherent, and although somehwat predictable, it is definitely not bad.

The characters? I loved them all. They all had life to them, even the minor ones you meet throughout various parts of the base(s) that you explore. Lost planet 1 had characters that I actually cared about and in my opinion, lost planet 3 was a vast improvement.

Game mechanics? The foot combat is the typical run and gun type. Nothing fancy and complicated, but satisfying enough. I loved the battles using your utility rig though. Like dead space, your rig is an engineering tool and not a weapon. So although it does not have cannons and missiles like in LP1+2, it does have a drill arm, and some very nifty and freaking cool pseudo-weapons that you will unlock in various parts of the game.

Graphics. Apparently I've heard that the graphics are worse than Lost planet 2. But the weather effects I think were very well done. Being in the middle of an emperor class storm in your utility rig was an amazing experience. I actually felt the chill of the setting.

Now, this isn't a masterpiece perfect game. There were parts of the story where I thought I was doing busywork, and your mech is a bit slow. Fast travel only works in sections of the map where you are leaving/entering it. I get it that it adds immersion but sometimes I don't want to walk for 10 minutes to get to the next objective.

Anyways, this is a definite thumbs up. Grab it during a sale!

This game looks pretty good still, but man is the gameplay dull central. There is a lot of laundry list type of missions here, and the mechanical robot rig is slow as hell to reach your destinations, even worse is the combat with this rig. I will say that the game ran uber smoothly with no crashes, although I did run into some audio glitches.

I only bought this game for a penny or so I think, and I still don't recommend it. Pretty boring and standard, nothing like LP 1 and 2, which are a few of my favorite games. What a shame.

ESP:
La primera vez que no pude terminar un juego.
LP3 es un juego decente paralizado por un trabajo de portabilidad con terribles problemas técnicos, bugs, se congela el personaje del jugador en su lugar después de ciertas secuencias y esto destruye la experiencia.

ENG:
The first time in over a decade of gaming that I could not finish a game.
LP3 is a decent game crippled by a terrible porting job with glitches, bugs, freezes the player character in place after certain sequences and that destroys the experience.

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.
