About the 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.

As a long time Lost Planet player and huge fan of the series since the beginning, I can say that this game is not for us.
The canon is broken from the first ten minutes of gameplay, and broken moreso at every single bend, turning the Akrdi threat into, well, not a real threat at all, VSs somehow sprouting from mechs three times their size, and the entire setting being....just ignored.
The game seems to set up it's own canon and it very much shows through gameplay, environments and design choices, that the development team either developed this as a standalone title because they wanted to show their own style, or that they completely have no clue about what the series is based upon, as the only design elements left from the original two titles, are the designs for some of the Akrid, and glowy bits on your armour. TE no longer works like it used to, grappling hooks went from fun to just a means of getting to exactly placed points and can't be used elsewhere. While the combat on foot is par for the previous games, the combat in the RIG is sluggish, slow, unreactive, and while the QTE-like moments while battling larger Akrid is sort of fun, the windows for counters are so tiny that you need to be quite good at the game to survive, and it is often better to simply combat the Akrid on foot.
The game does a good job at creating it's own world, however, and when viewed as its own title, rather than a sequel, it is honestly not bad. I could see myself really, really enjoying this game due to the beautiful, awe inspiring graphics, colour and environments, and while some of the designs are pants on head (Ie: not a single main character covers their face in the -50C weather), they often come off as their own product with it's own feel. The models are very much unlike game characters, and feel more like watching a live action series or movie.
The mechs, as a fan of the genre however, are garbage. The design team laxed back on huge, impossible to balance, utilitarian piles. The desperate attempt to seem believable and realistic is overshadowed by things like a giant, breakable cockpit window that constantly suffers damage, has complete ice overs, and serves as nothing more but face recognition that is impossible to see, as you're locked in first person view. VSs do exist, but the fact that these bloody things in no way resemble them but are somehow developed from them, and look not a thing like the original VSs, is a bit of a kick in the balls to fans of the mecha genre and fans of this series, the two of which often overlap. Instead of quick sliding and manouvering, we get CLANK CLANK CLANK. LP1 and 2 did the utilitarian mecha well, with it being reasonably sized, and with enough variety to suit anyone from the average anime fan to hardcore fans of old style mecha, and even to fans of western styles such as Battletech. However, this is mostly one bitter robot fans lament, and this is really up to personal opinion.

All in all, solid gameplay with a few problems and quirks. Beautiful graphics and design and a relatively believeable story, if not hindered by very poor dialogue at some points.
But, this all has to be ignored to some degree, as this is a title in an ongoing series, and indeed by that logic, must follow in the steps of its predecessors. The game fails on almost every level in this, and is something akin to an insult to long time fans of the series, and with Capcom's standard "It was your fault" schpiel to us for not demanding another game like Lost Planet 2, this game feels more like an insult than a new addition. This is a game for casual fans of the TPS genre, fans of sci-fi and sci-fi horror, but not a game for fans of Lost Planet.

the game mechanics have completely changed from the last two titles and I would HIGHLY recommend making sure you watch actual gameplay before buying.

Finally got around to finishing the game.The gameplay was mediocre, but the performances by the characters were good. Overall I don't think the game is particularly bad, but the game is extremely buggy. Just look at the discussion boards and google about the pc version of the game and you'll see for yourself. The game tends to crash ALOT. I got around the game crashing at the beginning by getting rid of the intro videos (nvidia logo screen and etc), but the game tends to have like a 50% chance of crashing everytime I get to a section that loads up a pre-rendered cutscene and that gets old FAST. The support for the game is extremely poor so I would say stay away from the pc version of the game.

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the game as much as its predecessors. Within itself, it has a decent story. Only problem is, its extremely weak link to the other two within the series *SPOILERS* at the end. The story hops around too much and too fast, trying to connect subtily to Extreme Conditions and NEVEC.
The combat is weak, along with the varients of Akrid, also, thanks to the side missions, the player can stray from the main path and lose connection with the plot and main characters.
For me, after the first play through, I won't be playing it again any time soon, the rig and weapon add ons were extremely limited and too little to start (I know you're not military). Plus as your character is narrating from the past, the "nearly dying" moments don't work as we know we live.

For a brief play through, the game is alright, good idea to get it on a sale if you want to kill some time. As well as the achievements still not working and the multiplayer being down (permanently thanks to GamesSpy being shut down), the fun runs its course far too soon.

If you're a big fan of Lost planet 1 or 2, this game probably isn't for you.
It does away with the open levels, fast paced combat and co-op in favour for a more linear story driven experience.
Please note that this entry into the franchise isn't developed by Capcom like it's predecessors, but instead by Spark unlimited (makers of Legendary, CoD: Finest hour), it's important to note this because combat in this game is completely different to the other 2 in terms of combat. (Also because their games are anything but popular)
The reason for this is Capcom wanted to get a Western studio to develop the franchise with the intent of expanding the LP series in the West.
Now, I don't want to write an essay on this game because it would be all too easy, but if you're still interested in buying this or on the fence, I reccomend watching total biscuits review for the game; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoQQPmjF5T4
Althought this review is very negative, I feel it captures my sentiments for the game perfectly.

TLDR; The only similarities to the previous installments in the series is the lore, it's a story driven game, combat feels very dull and repitive.
The writers of the story got nominated for outstanding achievement in videogame writing by the writers guild of America (it does have good story, and great character development)
3/10 from me, I dropped this game due to the combat.
