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.

The game gives out a great environment and a nice plot per se from the beginning however the game itself shows out to be something completely different.

First of all: the story.
For a game that has a saga so "arcadey" they sure revved up the plot in this chapter, too bad now the game will be solely concentrated on this and the slow damn rig. The story is full of clichès, predictable characters, predictable actions that just makes you think you're watching some badly rated Hollywood movie, so instead you focus on...

The gameplay: for a good 70% of the time you'll drive this slow and bulky legged tank across miles of snow, to then get yourself into linear hallways filled with facehuggers that you can easily avoid by running. The gameplay of the rig feels forced as most of the time the combat with it will imply CONSTANT Q.T.EVENTS, in fact, there's not much gameplay to speak of, as i've never seen so many qtes if not in uncharted. The on-foot combat is what you expect from a generic third person shooter, so not much to say for this, overall it's just incredibly boring.

The Bugs: I don't even know where to start... checkpoints that bugs themselves poiting to a previous locations that you already passed, winch that doesnt work, areas that cannot be passed if not by using some criptic combinations of time traveling (which is useless in my advise as the map is not even that big, but feels so thanks to the slowness of the rig). THanks to the constant bug in the game i couldn't even finish this as i got stuck in the storm testing mission, as the pointer tells me to go to an invisibile wall, searched for the solution online and i couldn't find anything.

Graphics: 8/10
Gameplay: 5/10
Soundtrack 7/10
Replayabilty: 3/10

If you're interested in the story, just watch some videos on youtube, if you're interested in the gameplay, just play some other 3rd person'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.

I almost did not get this game because of all the negative reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by the game during my 4 hours playing it. I dont get all the hate on as it is a good 3rd person shooter game with a large mech you drive around. The visuals are rather stunning and the fights with some creatures are challenging. The mech is not defensless and you can make upgrades to it. Just cant add guns on it but that is explained early on. The story so far is pretty good too. I dont regret my purchase on this one :-)

Pretty awesome gameplay, good environment and good cinematic, but it goes boring soon. I also encounter bugs. clunky character control mechanics.
