I absolutely love this game. When I was a teenager my parents bought this for me on xbox 360 and I was blown away. When I saw it was on sale I had to get it. It's just as great as I remember it! I connected my xbox controller to my pc and I'm settling nicely in full nostalgic immersion.

One of my favorite games that came from Japan and one of my favorite stories in pc gaming. I've played this since its release year and it always makes want to adventure into unknown places and test my skills with the largest of Alien monstrositys I've ever faced. The graphics are decent, the combat is amazing, and the weapons plus mechs, aka VS's (Vital Suits) dominate all with awsome gameplay and action that takes you into things that blow your mind. I recommend this game for it's weapons and mounts mostly, but try it for yourselfs, see how you like it and let me know what you think.

This game has cutscenes boy oh boy. In between each level you get about 3+ minutes worth of cutscene. But that is how Capcom makes all of their games besides Street Fighter so you just have to accept it. This is a great game. I like it better than LP2 because it doesn't have the weird mouse axis sensitivity issue that 2 does. And unlike LP2, you don't get your head caved in easily and have to respawn all the time. But if I had to pick, LP3 is the best game in the series. The graphics in this game are great and still hold up very well even today and the game runs great. The only issue is that having 'effects' on "high" instead of "low" will produce horrible framerate slowdown when you are close to any kind of effects like explosions or snow being kicked up by rollers. But whatever. I put it on low, who cares. That's the life of PC gaming, always something never nothing. This "Extreme Condition" edition puts in a bunch of new MP features which don't matter since MP for this game is deader than the hooker in my trunk, but I wasn't planning on playing MP for it anyway. The SP is a really fun time. Shooting big bugs, piloting mechs and shooting the fk out of everything in sight. Good times.

It controls way better than LP2 so the combat is much better. All around a great series, my favorite being LP3. 7.5/10.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a port of the ever so popular Xbox version. Developed and published by Capcom you begin the game int he Year T.C. -80 on the planet E.D.N. III after Earth's conditions become too critical thanks to Global wamring, Pollution and war. Neo-Venus (NEVEC) plans to colonize E.D.N. III to a new Earth-like planet in grip of an ice age but they descovered that the are aggressive territorial insectoids named Akrid inhabit this planet. You play as Wayne Holden, a Soldier who gets Amnesia pretty early in game. Gameplay wise the ground and Vital Suits (VSs) combat feels fluid, quick, and oh so satisfying. You play over the sholder view or you can switch to first person any time. You can carry 2 weapons of anykind except VS weapons which you can still use but you have to drop em. You have a grappling hook to climb or hijack VSs. The main gimmick to the game is Thermal Energy, keep the number high and you can live longer. Overall the Game plays great, looks great, and controls a bit sloppy. Overall a great game if you don't mind learning how to use KB+M. Get the Colonies edition though since it has more features and modes with the same Story. This one also has Dead Multiplayer.
