Excerpt: Lost Planet: Extreme Condition comes to the PS3 nearly a year after the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the same game. Although the PS3 version features a few new maps and characters for multiplayer, the core game remains largely the same. While these are nice additions, at least for people who enjoy multiplayer games, they aren't enough to entice people into an upgrade, nor do they make up for number of imperfections that mar the PS3 version.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Capcom a leading Japanese game development company loyal to Sony and its PlayStation consoles made two exclusive titles for the rival Xbox360. One a zombie infested mall called Dead Rising and the other a quest of survival in a remote snowy world called Lost Planet.
Conclusion: Lost Planet will make a great addition to your PS3 library, and the $40 price is right, especially for those who have never played the game at all, this is a must have. The 5GB required install is still a black cloud hovering over the game, because there are plenty larger-sized PS3 games like Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, which are just pop in and play, so there’s no excuse for Lost Planet, which ran fine on a regular DVD on the Xbox 360.
Conclusion: I will admit this game has its high and low points that will have certain gamers in a toss-up over whether they should pick up the PS3 version or go back and find a copy of the Xbox 360 version. Though there are framerate issues and texture issues that got a bit worse in the transition to the PS3, Capcom seems to make up for it with the addition of all the bonus content, which PC and 360owners had to pay for and download.
Summary: Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a solid title which delivers the goods if you're looking for an intense shooter and solid online gameplay. The game has been released below the price of most other PS3 titles, and is worth a look despite some flaws.
