Had the Playstation 3 version of Lost Planet been released as a launch game of the console, it would probably have gotten less critisism. In the meantime many better games have passed it by, which makes this one just another shooter. No one will get sleepless nights from this title.

When I started playing Lost Planet, I was expecting a bad game and lucky me, I was wrong. Of course the game has its flaws: graphics are bad (even for 2008), the story and characters are stereotypes, and you will finish the solo in 6-10 hours depending of your skills.
But the gameplay is effective and comes with two major features that makes Lost Planet different from others TPS out there : Mechs (at the time there wasn't Titanfall or Advanced Warfare) and the energy system (that ad some survival flavor to the game). Fighting giant Akrids/Mechs in your own Vital-Suit (aka: mech) is truly enjoyable.
In conclusion if you like TPS and don't care much about graphics, I'd advice Lost Planet as it is pretty cheap right now and offers some nice hours of entertainment.… Full Review »

Single player mode has some difficulty issues but is still fun. Overall though the Multi-player is where this game shines!
Great graphics, loads of different weapons, lots of unique maps and just great overall gameplay (especially multiplayer).
The price of $39 is also a big plus.

Shame on you capcom for making a pretty decent game look and play like crap on the ps3. Im no Microsoft fanyboy i own both systems but this is just terrible!!!… Full Review »
