Summary: Lost Planet is in essence Monster Hunter with guns. The gameplay consists of fighting giant alien creatures, shooting the orange spots on them in order to do damage. The game is alright except for the fact that it included a timer mechanic disguised as "thermal energy". This not only adds artifical difficulty but also creates unnecessary tension. The game would much benefit if there were bigger levels to explore, over the linear level design with mediocre bosses.
Summary: I ussualy don't play any 3rd person games since i am more a FPS. Decided to buy this game mostly because it was cheep and i was tired of dark background games(i had finished playing Killzone 2 trice)and liked the idea of a white background(snow). I like the game, the only issue is it has a verry poor button control; the same button gets you out/inside a battle suit and also removes/atach weapons.
Summary: This game is a third person shooter. The game play is okay, but can be repetitive after awhile. The graphics are quite basic compared to other PS3 games. Overall I would say if you can pick this game up for a low price it's worth a try.
Summary: I bought this game for my 10 year old son. He wanted Lost Planet 2 but that game doesn't come out until May. I told him to try the first one to see how he likes it. He liked the action and some of the graphics. He didn't care for one of the aliens in the game. I know my son doesn't watch scary movies, but I didn't think aliens in a video game would scare him. He only plays with it occasionally because of the aliens. If your child is afraid of aliens, I do not recommend.
Summary: The game overall was unique to its kinda and was decent at most. The controls were not the greatest, since the movements were choppy and requires a lot of effort to aim properly. Graphics were good but very choppy and the frame rates were pretty bad. Also the game tends to lag down during big fights. I would recommend the game since it was only $15.00, but I feel bad for the people whou bought the game at $59.99.
