Weak

Repetitious and eventually boring

This game was initially fun. Then there comes a point in the game where you defeat a tough boss and you think, well that was fun--whew! Then almost instantly you are facing the same Boss in a slightly different environment. It's like Capcom needed more game but run out of ideas. It was really disappointing. I had purchased the game but I shrugged and gave it to a friend. This game could have been really good. As is, it sucks.

I think this one was more of a DLC ...a really long DLC that fills in the blanks of the Lost Planet Universe. After the disappointing storyline of Lost Planet 2, this one brings a fresh new story. The gun play leaves a lot to be desired, giving you only 4 different guns to use, some very similiar to the next. The Mech that you walk in though is awesome. The graphics are beautiful but nothing new. A game worth playing for you Lost Planet fans. But don't expect the nail gripping action as the first one

First two hours were fun, then what happened?

I try not to review games because to me a review means that is what I want people to think, this is just me posting my experience.

I'll be honest, for the first 2 hours I had so much fun I didn't feel like I was having any issues with the game at all. In the beginning I had some issues with the ADS (Aiming Down Sights) however once I tweaked the sensitivity it was perfect, the game went on great.

The game really conveys the whole Alone and claustrophobic feelings similar to games such as Dead Space and Fear. Graphically the game is awesome as with the audio it shows that both Playstation 3 and XBox 360 still has some staying power if the games are done right. It still shows that PS3 and XBox 360 are capable of producing beautiful games if they are done right.

With that said, it's now time for my experiences with the game after the first two hours, it honestly feels like someone else developed the game after those first two hours. What do I mean? I mean that I was on a mission to get a winch for my Rig once I got it I was sent on a mission to locate some Thermal Energy (T-Energy) pockets. I approached a cliff where I'm suppose to use the winch however the defined spot to use the winch is so finicky that if you aren't in this one millimeter spot it won't work and for me that's a major turn off.

After 15 minutes of getting the winch to work I continued on to the area where I was forced to give up, that spot is where I'm facing a huge Acrid in my Rig this boss I fought 3 prior times before getting in the Rig. The issue with this is at least to me the controls are so awful by this point it's impossible to continue on.

So as I said the game was fun over the first two hours but after this I couldn't continue it's sad because this game had so much going for it but once that mission with the winch started the game went downhill real fast. I hope if they make another LP game they fix the errors of this game.

A solid 5 from me.
