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 game is proof that a story doesn't have to be original to be well-executed. The overall plot structure is "evil corporation wants you to help them suck out a planet's lifeblood", which we've all seen before. But Lost Planet 3 distinguishes itself with characters who are anything but stock, written and voice-acted with skill and flair. Throw in some gorgeous environment design and some halfway-original gameplay and you've got a game worth playing. Plus you get to stomp around in a giant robot that actually feels utilitarian instead of being gratuitously anime. It's not a mecha, it's a utility rig!

If you are a fan of giant robots, detailed environments , or decent sci-fi stories then this is a worthy game. There are a whole lot of minute details throughout the game that make it worthewhile to people who enjoy exploration.

If you are looking for innovative gameplay, Call of Duty-esque multiplayer, or something else, then give the game a pass. There's already plenty of reviews that outline every negative aspect of the game.

I felt it was a good buy and enjoyed my time with it.

Quick Summary: Lost Planet 3 is a Third Person Shooter with sci-fi weapons on a frozen alien world. There are some RPG elements such as weapon and suit upgrades and fast traveling to revisit prior areas, but it’s definitely more of an action shooter than anything else. I never played Lost Planet 1 or 2 and had no trouble following the plot. Don’t let that hold you back if you’re wondering whether or not you should try the game.

You play the character James Peyton, a new arrival on the planet EDN 3, an ice planet packed with T Energy, which is supposed to be the solution to Earth’s energy crisis. The entire EDN 3 research expedition is funded by the Nevec Corporation, who will do whatever it takes to make sure Earth gets the energy it needs. Unfortunately for both you and Nevec, the T Energy is sort of hard to acquire since it’s mostly found running through the veins of the alien creatures inhabiting this frozen world. The creatures aren’t the only threat around here, as you’ll find right from the start Nevec is as shady as they come.

As mentioned earlier, the game is played in third person over-the-shoulder most of the time, but you do spend a lot of time in your Utility Rig, which is a big mech with a drill arm that you can occasionally battle giant monsters with. Mostly the Rig is for story-based missions though, and for getting around the various environments with your winch (like a grappling hook). The health system for the game is basic regenerating life where you just need to take cover for about 10 seconds and you’ll be back to full health. There aren’t that many weapons to choose from but if you’re like me you’ll probably be using the same ones most of the game anyways (assault rifle + sniper rifle). You can only carry 2 weapons at a time + your basic infinite ammo pistol. Throughout your game you can use the T Energy you collect as money, purchasing upgrades for your weapons (including specialty ammo) and upgrades for your Utility Rig (such as improved armor).

Pros:
+Decent story and “modern” graphics.
+Giant monster bosses, which is always nice.
+The specialty ammunition adds some variety, though you really won’t use it very much.

Cons:
-This is a console port and a couple things (such as opening large doors with your Rig) are not well implemented. It tells you to press the WASD buttons to open the giant gates, but really you just mash the “f” key.
-Moving between the various “areas” of the game is kind of tiresome because your Rig really doesn’t walk very fast. You can probably get out and run just as quickly but then you wouldn’t be able to transition areas.
-Multiplayer is completely dead. Nobody’s playing online so you can’t get the multiplayer achievements.

Overall the game is fun enough to consume 10 hours if you enjoy shooters. As I’ve said, I haven’t played the previous 2 Lost Planet games so I couldn’t say how they match up. If I had to compare Lost Planet 3 with any other games, I’d say it’s more like Red Faction Armageddon than anything else (without the destructible environments).

Alright so right down to it, Lost Planet 3 is the third installement of the epic lost planet series, it is a departure in some ways from previous incarnations...and honestly like many console ports the game has its flaws.

Pros
-Really neat looking graphics
-Combat is fun
-Dialog is somewhat funny
-Animations seem pretty well done
-Akrid blood fuels you!
-Weapon shop was a nice touch
-Story seems pretty good so far

Cons
-Controls seem glitchy in certain aspects due to the rush of the port
-Multi-player is dead so if you bought this title for that...well you might be a little mad
-Got alot of bad press and reaction by gaming snobs

Lost planet 3 is a great game and it does need some desperate patching and revitalizing by capcom for sure.I am gonna go ahead and say it's worth a look if you like single-player. Also if you can get it on sale, the price of 24.99 is good but maybe a bit better at 14.99, if you see it on sale with it's better older brother lost planet 2, scoop it up.

It's not bad, but it's also not great.

Shooting is decent: the guns feel powerful and the not-boss aliens are fun to shoot. They even splatter into pieces with a point-blank shotgun to the face.
The big walker section, where you move in your utility rig from A to B, aren't as fun. You move slow and are in a big clunky machine.
There's upgrades (bought with ingame credits enemies drop), but they aren't significant. Most updates are in the fashion of "10% extra damage/armor/ammo for X".

What kills it is how these elements have to come together in the campaign. The missions are uninteresting: go to this point on the map using your slow rig and turn a valve/press a button. But unsurprisingly, just before you can do this, there's some aliens in the way. Sometimes there's even a boss. Which is just a big alien with a big invisible healthbar with attacks you have to dodge every now and then.

It's not horrible, but there are better games more worth your time.

I don't really know why a lot of people don't like LP3, but in my opinion its better then its prequels.
Better gameplay, environment, personages and story!

I enjoyed the game and really have no regrets at all about playing this franchise!!

Rig battles ruin any possibility of this game being enjoyable. There's nothing worse than fighting in a slow mechanical walker with no weapons besides utility crap. Every rig battle is a Quick Time Event. Uninstalled the game for this reason.

As for the rest, it's pretty much a cookie cutter TPS, whilst some of the bosses are pretty cool, the rig fights let the game down. The game gets really repetitive and slow as you go through it too. There's literally nothing that comes out and says "play me" about this game. It's still using dated concepts which would have been praised back in 2007 but Lost Planet 3 joined the bandwagon a little late. Sure you can buy weapons and do side quests and stuff... but there are so many other games that can do that now too so Lost Planet 3 just fails to keep up.

It would have been a decent game if it wasn't for the godawful rig battles. It's just unforgivable.

Some more money and not being tied down to a franchise like Lost Planet and maybe Spark Unlimited could have done something really special here. It’s not a terrible game on the whole, with likeable characters and decent voice acting peppered throughout, but purely as a ‘game’ the entire experience is forgettable and largely boring.

The following review will use Pros-Cons to keep it short. Current Playtime: 5.3 Hours

Pros:
Good Visuals
Good Sound design
Good Performance
Good world design
Good Stability
Simple and intuitive gameplay

Neutral:
Cheesy/Cliche dialog and events
Picks up slowly
Few and limiting weapon upgrades

Cons:
A few bugs, mostly tied to movement
Silly and non rebindable controlls
Low res Cutscenes that are also locked at 30fps which is very obvious compared to 60fps gameplay (yes there is a 7Gb DLC for this)
Repetive Combat
Quick time event/Blatantly patterned bosses
Lots of loading screens, although some are hidden behind elevators, coridors or big doors
It makes you think you can explore but you can't

Other:
Tries too hard to be a serious game when it's not
Probably tried to ride on the hype of Dead Space 3
Intense, horror themed music at times but fails to actualy scare you
Fun overall if you don't take it too seriously

Hints:
(minor spoilers may be here)
When it says "w/a/s/d" to spin the claw arm it means mash F
Shotgun is the way to go 99% of the time

This game is simply boring.

Removes pretty much everything that made the Lost Planet series unique and enjoyable.

Say goodbye to a wide range of weapons and Vital Suits for in this one you will be bumbling around in a weighty, clunky, useless mining mech.

Not worth your time if your a fan of the series and not worth your time if you simply want to have fun whilst playing games.

This game feels unpolished and yet polished? There's a beautiful world to explore but nothing to do in it, no real exploration to be had, and very little fun amidst the tedium. But it works, somehow, sort of. I got killed doing the most basic thing and realized that I hated the guns and shooting and that pretty much tanked it for me. I feel like I'm still waiting for the game to start. Some of the characters are so personable and well written but something seems so off. I don't get the sense this is a world more than a mashup of characters and ideas from different scripts. I like Jim. He's living the oil Rig lifestyle, away from the missus. I identify with that. Still don't care enough to finish the game though.

Some glitchiness using kb+m but nothing insane. PS: when it says use WASD to turn your robot arm it actually means to repeatedly press F.

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 :-)

Not a bad story for the curiosity of origins and visuals. But as a game, it's just not what Lost Planet fans needed.

In truth if they just took the gameplay and mechanics of LP2, made it a mass player co-op experience with customization support or randomly generated levels for missions into the future, that easily works without Windows live garbage, it would've been that grand experience we could hope for. Especially if they could do it while keeping the journey like the first game.

As for this game, it's a bit of a hit or miss, and overall could've been left out. Game play wise it chokes out the old options and possibilities that came with 1&2 by limiting where you can grapple, less vital suit options to what feels less than the bare minimum and it lacks anything you really would've hoped for from past co-op and multi player offerings.

It makes me sad that most of Capcom traditions past will never live up to the expectations anymore. Sadly much of this so called AAA industry just feels really out of touch with what really moved games up the ladder of what's fun. So much money asked for high end visuals but fails to really expand properly on gameplay options and fun.

This game felt like truck driving without the social experience. It felt like a job without benefits by the time you got over looking at the scenery.

Just give us a better up to date Lost Planet 2 with an ongoing frontier and some story with other updates over time. Give us what we would want. An immersive, fun, experience with a proper growth of options to keep it going.

This review contains no spoilers, as far as I am aware. :3

Gunplay in this game was really good. I found there were some great effects for bullets hitting enemies and in addition, there were nice modifications to buy with in-game points for weapons. One thing I did notice though was a lack of weapons. I found I was limited as to what weapons I could choose from, which limited my expectations of the future gameplay. However, they totally won me over with many boss battles that took a long time to conquer if I had picked the wrong weapon. Weapon customisations are vital to the harder enemies towards the end of the game.

Also, there were customisations for what the character calls his Rig. It is the vehicle you play a lot of the game in and customisations for that are not vital, but are pretty cool. In order to customise your Rig, you have to collect special parts that are scattered around the game. I found this was a good opportunity that the creators added in to really get the gamers to explore their full creation. Not only were there those collectibles, but there were audio logs and text logs scattered around the map as well, which you could then listen to on your menu screen. I found that this gamification really was a good thing to add to the game for some real emotional intensity to the game.

The storyline of this game is really long. I had idled for 6 hours on this game, and so my play time is an exceedingly long play time - but no worries, take 6 hours off of my game time and you have your result for how long it took me to complete this game. It has taken me around 11 hours to complete the campaign. Personally, I found this game droaned on with the same stuff up until around 3/4 of the way through. Things then got a lot more interesting, unexpected twists happened in the game which really gained my interest and I was hooked to the game.

While playing this game, it has made me laugh at some points where the creators have used a touch of humour to the conversations in the game. I think this is really cool, because that adds extra audience attraction, adding to the matter of how much we enjoy it.

The end of the game made me cry for about 30 seconds. Any game that makes me cry is automatically classed - to me - as a game with effective emotion. This game conquered my emotions. Good job to the creators!

This game looks beautiful. On the maximum graphics setting, it really is a stunner, bearing in mind this game was made in 2013. I really like the gunplay in this game, and the 3rd person point of view has a good camera angle. The reason why I mention the camera angle is because some 3rd person shooter games have some dodgy angles, which furthermore makes it hard to actually play the game comfortably.

There are very few cutscenes in the game. This, for some, may be an issue. However, for others this may be great news. Personally, I quite like cutscenes and - although this game doesn't have many - the cutscenes in this game really are relatable and gain my full interest. The creators of the game have thought about emotion well as they have used a wide range of emotion and expressions throughout the game.

They have effectively created a strong link between the player and the main character, which is always a bonus to the entire effect of the game. The end of the game was really good and is something that nobody wants to miss.

Just another thing to add in, there are side missions that you can complete throughout this game for more in-game points. I didn't do many of them, but they are good ways to gain yourself some points towards weapon modifications.

===================================================================

Problems: These problems happened for me, however other users may not encounter them.

While playing this game, I have realised that there are a couple of problems concerning the controls and a slight technical problem with my graphics driver. At many points you are supposed to use the [W,A,S,D] keys to turn some valves. For me, this hadn't worked, and so I needed to use a gamepad's analog stick instead. Due to this, I decided to switch over to gamepad for playing the game. However, after a little while of playing with the gamepad, my game kept crashing at random moments for an unknown reason. This is when I decided that how I'm playing this game is plugging the gamepad in for the valves but then unplugging it for the rest of the game. So basically, I'm using the gamepad to turn valves, and that's it, due to a problem with the controls configuration. I did look into the problem with my graphics driver crashing (Windows Kernel Driver) however I wasn't able to find a fix - or one that worked for this game, anyway.

Update #1: In addition, I have found that every now and again, the game crashes on the highest settings. I'm not sure if this is just due to my graphics driver, but I have lowered my graphics to "medium" to prevent crashes, as they are very fraustrating.

Update #2: My graphics driver has still been crashing on Medium settings. This could possibly just be due to my driver but all other games have been fine. It's just this game that has been a little on the dodgy side. This happens on a very rare occasion now though, and so it doesn't worry me too much. And yes, my graphics drivers are fully updated.

First off i feel that I should clarify that this game is very good. The gameplay, visuals, writing and acting are all very high quality.
Unfortunately there is an issue when the game tries to play cinematics that causes it to crash on some computers. While looking for fixes/workarounds i discovered that this is a very common problem and none of the fixes worked for me.
I would reccomend this game if you don't mind messing around with the files and removing cinemamtics or if your computer doesn't encounter this error but be ready to refund if it doesn't work out.

Ok its not a bad game after all. DOWNLOAD FREE DLC HI - RES MOVIES - I wonder why are the animations so bad (squares literally) and after finishing the game I found this DLC - to late. I dont know why developers did this. RPG elements is based on DEAD SPACE, I must say the story is pretty good. Graphics wonderfull, but again (dont know about HI-RES) faces animation terrible.

NOTE: At the time of writing this review I notice that overall review is MIXED it should be POSITIVE (I cant change it of course) but here are some ideas why:

1) Part of community expect another game like previous ones in sequel wich is definitly not
2) Another part expect another game like DEAD SPACE wich is not
3) The rest was annoyed by early bugs (I played this game 2 years after release so either I am lucky one or everything is patched now)

Not my cup of tea but I can see for those that follow the series might enjoy it. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the graphics and the action I just do not find the story interesting enough to make me keep playing this one. However for what it is I would recommend it to someone at least to try it out.

Worse than Lost Planet 1 and 2, this game begins to use a lot of quick time events, and follows the general guideline of a piece of entertainment within a series to begin dying at the third one. I only played 24 minutes despite looking at many bad reviews, and the story was very uninteresting, and the game gave me no motivation to continue the game.

Good game in its own right, I haven't played any other Lost Planet game but this one was a good journey, controlls are weird at first with keyboard and mouse but you'll get the hang of it, like seriously? P to pick up stuff? Ok... And something that made me almost quit the game in the beginning was that when you had to turn the valve thingy it said you had to press W/A/S/D and it wasn't working, seems like you have to press F instead...

Final verdict: 6.5/10

Ok story, good upgrades, bosses are kinda lame once you get the hang of them, voice acting is fantastic, visuals are great too, infuriating at some points.

Its been a while since I last played this, but seeing the reviews now I'd like to state my opinion.

Let me start by saying this is not your traditional run and gun mega action Lost Planet game. If that is a major turn off I would not reccomend getting this. Lost Planet 3 is an interesting case where the devs decided to take a more story driven approach. You play this game for its story, and that's about it. It has this interesting quest system that made me feal as if I were playing an rpg game, and to be honest I liked it. I believe the game has a great story, one that really wrapped me into to it. While the pacing could have been better I really felt for the characters, they meant something to me. And in terms of story driven games, that is very good.
But now lets talk about the gameplay itself. Lost Planet 3 takes a Dead Space approach to over-the-shoulder third person view, unlike other Lost Planet games. The gunplay is also similar to the Dead Space series. There is a lot of running from here to there but don't worry there are plenty of baddies to shoot on your way...most of the time.
The game has its fair share of good and bad, the good being the story, and the bad being the fact that this game does not do justice to the Lost Planet name. Really what is important to know is that this is a game with a good story and decent gameplay, but do not expect it to be the next big Lost Planet game it set out to be.
