Capcom has been criticized by its fan for killing its core games and not remaining true to many of their hit games. Along comes Lost Planet 3. This game goes back to E.D.N. III for this edition in the series. The Extreme unpredictable conditions of the cold planet combined with Jim Peyton, a Utility Rig pilot who leaves earth to do a job for Ne0-Venus Construction (NEVAC), obtaining samples of the planet’s natural energy source, Thermal Energy, which is believed to be the answer to Earth’s energy crisis.

The story in my opinion is one of the best in the Lost Planet series. Here I have to be honest I only completed two but this adventure will have me back to the original Extreme Conditions soon. The story was very cinematic and strong just like the sense I got when I interviewed Bill Watterson the actor behind Jim Peyton. The game also had intense moments that will keep you on the edge of your seats.

The gameplay of the game in story seems very well placed. I love the games layout and cover system. I felt at times it was similar to gears as far as how the running and invasion goes. Even in the multiplayer, the story remains true. When a player is down you can finish them off with a brutal stomp. I didn’t see many other finishes unless you sneak from behind so its gets a little old after a few hours.

The multiplayer is better than people would want you to think. The attack and defend and the diverse cooperative team versus match show a few things never before seen in multiplayer. The only issue in my opinion right now , (at least on the PS3 side of things) is we need more people to cop the game.

So I guess that leads to what you guys need to know.. Short and Simple..

An Extremely Chilling Experience!

PLAY IT! 8/10
