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 buggy mess, filled with bad and strange gameplay decisions. Dead Space 1-3 are FAR better games, and feel incredibly similar.

80% of Lost Planet 3 consists of walking around in a very slow, defenseless Mech / Rig. When you get to where you need to be, you spend 15 minutes turning a valve, and then another 15 minutes turning another valve. Every single button \ computer you interact with gives a predictable 'WARNING: MALFUNCTION' message, leading you to interact with yet another, far away button \ computer. Extremely tedious.

You also have to backtrack for a lot of objectives, and enemies spawn in exactly the same locations; there is no variation, in both the environments or the enemies. When enemies spawn, you can also see them literally appear in front of you most of the time.

I made it about 5 hours in and encountered a game-breaking bug that prevented me from continuing. I'd encountered the bug several times in the game, but they were overcome (eventually). At this point, I'd seen enough of the game and wasn't enjoying it much, so it was the last straw.

The PC controls often don't work, and when the button prompts appear on-screen, they're very often wrong, even using the default control scheme. The game clearly wasn't bug-tested or had much, if any, quality-assurance. Even playing on a 360 controller has some issues with wrong button-prompts and slow interactions.

When very similiar and much better games like Dead Space exist, I find it impossible to recommend this game.

Would recommand it from humble bundles... but... Well there's a couple of problems in it.
1. the multiplayer is dead.
2. Doesn't fell like a lost planet in term of action

Still a good game...But don't waste your money on the mp dlc's.

First things first. You must not, i repeat you must not play this as you would the other Lost planet game, because it plays nothing like those. This game carries the Lost planet title, but doesn't deliver the lost planet experience most are accustom to. At heart its a AA budget game (pretty sure it cost more to make this than the other lost planet games) action game with a decent story, that may come off Hollywood quality with the action the match.

Its a competent game as it is, but its not lost planet. It it didn't carry the lost planet name, im sure this game would be more recieved by the steam community. This game is a action story driven game, that doesn't have the variety you normally get from the series. Theres some jank and stank to this game, but for the most part its enjoyable, as long as you dont think lost planet while playing it.

When i did play this game, i have to admit that it felt like the devs got some inspiration from Deadspace 3, because i could have swarn i was playing Deadspace 3 in some sections of the game. The gun play in this game just isnt as satisfying as other shooters. the enemy A.I is what you normally would expect from dumb alien wild life creators, till you bump into human enemy A.I and boy are they morons. The focus is on the creatures so i guess i can forgive the devs for that.

All and all this game is a decent experience as long as you don't play it as Lost planet, rather you enjoy it as a action Hollywood kind of experience. Now i think of it. This is definitely a lost planet reboot from a western dev, it feels like it. Lost planet this is not.
