You'll come across bosses where you will spend 35+ MINUTES just doing this:
- Shot with pistol (you're out of ammo)
Search for Cat-L Akrid Boss for an example. I like hard game, but making you spend 35 minutes to defeat ONE boss?
It's the game design, not how you play. I tried this scene 3 times and same thing. You will be out of ammo then down to the weakest weapon - a pistol. It's like how the designed wants it to be. OK, then, I have better time that to play this.
I have a really weird feeling towards this game. I, personally, really enjoyed the first two Lost Planet games. They had a simple concept and were all around fun, in my opinion. This game is a solid title, but it's just not Lost Planet. Yea, the enemies and environments are similar, but the way the game felt in the previous titles isn't even close to how this game feels. I used to love the idea of being able to grapple onto anything in a tricky situation and move around with ease. I feel like they tried to give this game a Dead Space/Gears Of War vibe, and it didn't need it. All in all, I think it's a good game, but it sadly becomes more and more repetitive and it can become dull if you play too long in one sitting.
