What could have been

It's a sad occasion when you come across a game that displays greatness in so much of what it does and then a real let down when you come across the flaws that keep it from excelling. This is without a doubt Lost Planet 3. It irks me when developers are either too lazy, underpaid or just simply rush to market to get a game out leaving it unfinished. LP3 has beautiful graphics, a wonderful story, great dialogue (see Gale in the basement workshop) and has a nice even pace between action and exploration.

However, where it gets bad is the atrocious nav point system. I mean why is it that all optional missions do not show a nav point when trying to get to your objective? Was my particular game broken? The main missions are easy to follow but side missions are a "your guess is as good as mine" experience. In short, you get lost a lot with no sure indication as to where to go and no help along the way. I only completed a few of the side missions because of this and I really wanted to play all of them to get the complete experience.

Secondly, and maybe this somehow was my system or disc (although I cant see how since we are all playing the same game on the same system) but why does the audio in almost every cutscene sound distorted. I almost wanted to stop playing the game just because of the in game cinematics. What a shame. I couldn't even enjoy the story because of this unforgivable garbage.

Anyway, I won't ramble on but please do give it a rent before you buy. I would love to have purchased this game but some things are inexcusable and I just cant recommend this one.
