Very Good

Good Reboot

Let's be honest--regardless of whether you were a fan of the first Lost Planet, LP2 was a pretty difficult game to like, and thus, it came as a surprise when Capcom announced they were making a sequel to this franchise.

This time around, expect more story than action, but the story is decent, even if it doesn't feel spectacularly original. Lots of time spent contemplating the cold in the mech, probably much more than actual fighting, was a bit of an isolating experience.

Overall, I'd say if you're into story-driven action and not an ADD gamer, it's worth checking out.

The story, plot, game play and action were all pretty good. The one thing that threw the game off for me was the voice acting. The acting itself was fine except the microphones sounded like they were in the throats of the actors. I could hear the breathing and lip smacking. It was very distracting. Other than that the game gets a solid 7

The Story Lost Me - contains some spoilers

I thought Lost Planet 3 started out fantastic. A very compelling plot of a guy coming to a dangerous place to do a dangerous job to help his family. And the first few missions were great: learning the ropes and your surroundings and getting to know the people on the station and fighting off monsters and storms and destruction.

Then a few hours in, the whole script is flipped and you leave the base to go to a town of freedom fighters. Apparently, you were working for the evil company and now, to progress, the game compels you to work for these new guys. I really wish the game offered you the choice of who to work for. These freedom fighters complain that they are oppressed by the evil company but they seem to be living quite securely while the evil company base was inches from destruction last time you were there.

Anyway, the story lost me. I just didn't care about doing missions for this new group of jerks. it went against the whole premise of the main character doing a JOB to support his family.

The gameplay was great, but the monsters were really tough and retreading through the same areas and killing the same tough monsters over and over got to be a chore.
