The game is ok but the load time every time you go to a different area is a joke. It takes way to long that and a few other little things i would not rent it from hre for the fact that you'll wait a week for it and be SAD lol because you'll most likely sent it right back and have to wait another week for a game lol...
I actually liked the style and game as a whole better than the first two. If I were to rank all 3 games I would say this and the first one pretty close to a tie for first with the second one being last.
--Characters and voice acting pretty good. Jim was an all around likable character
--the rig was cool, especially with all its upgrades
--the rig soundtrack was a good addition
--good selection of weapon choices
--while the rig was cool, there could have been so much more done with it
--while at this point in time chronologically VS suits weren't created yet it still would have been cool to have them
--rig soundtrack, while a nice addition, was "temporarily disabled" way too much
--repetitive side missions (t-eng posts)
--not enough side missions
All around I liked it. Liked it much better than the second game and in my opinion was equal or perhaps a little better than the first. I just like the style. Was not a big fan of the style the first two were.
Capcom's reinstallment of Lost Planet is set to appeal the western culture(Americans) of gamers... It does a great job implementing a broader storyline and creative gameplay. Giving the gamer the cinematic experience US gamers are accustomed to.
This time around it has a more of a deadspace feel in gameplay but Multiplayer feels more like the original conception of the game but a step back.
You assume the role of Jim Peyton.
In a distant future of humanity... Resources and renewable energy are scarce and in order for humanity to survive a renewable energy is sought-out. Energy known as Thermal Energy is found on planet E.D.N. III .
Jim is a pilot of a robotic construction rig and sets off into the frigid and extreme environment. Braving the planet and keeping the Base furnished with thermal energy... Jim finds a trail that shows that his contractor, NEVEC has a hidden agenda.
The game really had a Deadspace feeling, but without the zombie astronauts... The level design was very well refined and a great amount of detail was placed into the environment. The RIG you control periodically is hardly ever used -- You are limited to small levels and it made the rig pretty useless.
The multiplayer is a step back from Lost Planet 2... In the last installment, they had many vehicles and fairly large maps... In this version you have constant tight corridors and they do not give you real choice of vehicles.
I still enjoyed the game... The single player had a Borderlands feel also--besides containing many loading screens--you do get the feeling of being on a empty, vast planet that contains no life.
I hope they continue Lost Planet on the next generation consoles. If the game had no loading screens and was far more open to explore, it would have been perfect. Maybe bring back the complex of Lost planet2 Multiplayer also.. The multiplayer now seems VERY dull with lack of option.
