Conclusion: On your road to 100% you will tackle a few collectible achievements, achievements for upgrading your gear and RIG, creating a bestiary, and a good chunk of multiplayer achievements. Pretty standard issue stuff...
Summary: In case you didn't know, Lost Planet 3, the latest installment in the Lost Planet franchise is a prequel. LP3 takes place decades before the events of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. Earth is in the middle of an energy crisis- resources are scarce and the future of humanity is uncertain.
Conclusion: Lost Planet 3 is a bit of a wasted opportunity, but still a journey worth taking if you’re into some solid action and pretty visuals. Sci-fi fans will surely get their fix, assuming they're prepared to take a dose of boredom with their action.
Pros: Convincing and well-written main protagonist, the on-foot segments are fun, top-notch graphics;
Cons: Monotonous, the story is underdeveloped and unfolds too slowly, larger and more varied environments would have spiced things up.
Conclusion: A good friend of mine once posed perhaps the most intelligent question I’ve ever heard him utter: “Is Capcom an American company with Japanese influence, or a Japanese company with an American influence?
Conclusion: Lost Planet 3 is competent, but lacks any real soul. The Rig is a cool idea, and adds an interesting perspective to what is an otherwise pretty standard third-person shooter where waves of enemies come at you again and again, but even that brightest spark falls apart in execution.
Banish This Franchise To The Outer Reaches Of Space
27 August 2013
Conclusion: Concept: Capcom upends the Lost Planet franchise once again
Graphics: Constant texture pop-in, loading, and repetitive environments do not make a pretty game
Sound: The voice acting is decent enough, but the script isn’t interesting
Playability: Poor rig controls and slow on-foot traversal wear on...
Conclusion: Lost Planet 3 seems like a game that does not understand its own fan base and never knows exactly what segment of the market it tries to attract. The second game in the series had a dedicated following, but they will find little to love in this third installment.
