Lost Planet 3
Buy this game
i was iffy on getting this game because i thought 2 was terrible. but after i got this game i had a hard time wanting to stop. the story is good starts slow but builds. the gameplay is smooth no terrible controls like 2. i have been playing almost non stop when im on my xbox.
Unique, it stands on its own
To make it clear this is a prequel, so it takes place before the other two, and it explains ALOT of things. Still the game is not multiplayer nor coop oriented, is story based. And I like story telling, though given the aspects of the previous two I was skeptical as to what I would expect. The game is not so linear but there isn't alot of exploration either. The story is amazing however, the voice acting is superb and the motion capture on the faces is also amazing. Moving story, nice twists. Would I pay 60 bucks? no would not, the story is amazing but given the lack of coop, I guess they had all that money placed into graphics, that is not to say the story is lacking but other gameplay aspects like multiplayer and coop aren't there, which made lost planet 2 very entertaining. So in the end this game has a...rare quality is a game that has amazing story and amazing graphics. Reminds me of Crysis 2. For me this game is worth around 40 dollars. And only because is lacking coop.
This game took a rapid downturn from what the other Lost Planet Games tried to live up to. I will not say anything more than Lost Planet 3's only interest in the game is to make you run around a ridiculously bland world carrying out pointless errands for the result of having to deal with a cheesy and generic plot line.
Awesome sci fi shooter game
This game is a really good underrated game and shouldnt be overlooked. Just dont listen to the haters because this is a great game. This is my first time playing a lost planet game so I dont know if it is any better than 1 and 2. Graphics 9.75: there are amazing the charecters as well as the enviroments are superb and the aliens look really cool.Story 8.5: it is allright it isnt predictible but isnt amazing ethier but better than most.Controls 10: There simple and easy to learn and it tells you how to control your rig when you first enter it. Gameplay 9.75: The gameplay is awesome when you are in your rig you usually have to counter atack an attack then grab the alien and either use your drill to punch a hole in it or use your claw to crush it you unlock more ways to kill different akrid as you go one. The firefights are great you and the different kind of akrid (aliens) are cool and each are extremly different and you have to aproach each one differently.The only thing I will complain about is how slow your guy is and your rig. Sound 9.5: The actors are top notch and the music is great and has a great cinematic experiance thanks to the voice actors. Lasting appeal 9.25: This game took me roughly 14 hours to beat the story but not all the side missions so the length and appeal will last. This game overale I give a 9.75 the main high points are the sound and gameplay.
Not the Lost Planet, you used to know.
Lost Planet 3 surprised me, we'll in a mixed way. The story is the best out of the series, The voice acting is some of the best I've ever seen and heard, and there is absolutely no bugs or glitches in the game. Cons-Multiplayer is boring, their hardly are ever very good fire-fights. They also removed the Customizable character loadout and also coop, and going in and out of the rig kinda gets annoying, cause you kinda of do the same thing over again, repair something, kill that, repair that. I would recommend to buy for a fan of the series or someone who likes a good story that's easy to understand.
What a letdown!
I'm a long time shooter fan. If you like Lost Planet 1 and 2, Gears 3, Halo 4, Metro:Last Light and Call of Duty you won't like this game. You spend so much time rolling around trying to avoid being killed by a creature bigger than the average size house while shooting it with a BB gun. Big bug? No problem! Just give me a rocket launcher, not rocks to throw. Don't waste your gaming cash on this one, get Metro:Last light or something else.
Best one yet
This game is excellent for a Capcom game and has grate visual and sound. It has a grate campaign, longer then the first 2, and a grate story with plenty to do to keep you playing. Though the online ,multiplayer is'int perfect, kinda slow paced, it keeps you playing threw new unlocks and multiple game modes. Overall Its a grate game that is the perfact prequel to lost planet.
i played it and had a lot of fun, the plot was a little iffy, but the fights were a really fun and even being in therig was challenging but it makes you feel like a god walking around and crushing enemies (which happens more often then you would think) all around, if you are looking for just a fun and relaxing game to play, this one is perfect.
Not the Lost Planet we know and love
only reason i got the game is because i loved lost planet 1 and 2. this one is a joke. graphics are nice. but the story is blaa. i remeber it being about mechs and large landscapes to fight. now its just a 3rd person run and gun. im half way thru the game already. and the only mech is basically used as a car from point A to point B. no real combat. all honest i feel like I'm playing Dead space again.....but with ice!
Finally Capcom is here!
Lost Planet series has always been a powerhouse for hardcore gamers. Now the newest installment is finally here! Capcom can retaliate with this game and get back into the spotlight. Make sure to pree-order to get the Freedom Fighter pack!!
