The lights are on
During our TGS demo of Lost Planet 3, we drilled through a scorpion's tail with a giant mech. Clearly Lost Planet 3 looks like the most polished entry in the series so far.
The trouble started when I got a call that there was a problem with the communications relay at the top of my peak. That communications relay is our lifeline to the world, so I head up to take a look.
On the way up, I shoot down a few giant flying insects. They don’t pose much of a threat, but one gets a little close and prompts a quick time event that has me dodging its stinger. My shotgun acts as a great fly swatter, and I quickly make my way to the top of the peak. A quick inspection of the relay reveals that someone has been tampering with the circuitry. It seems that we have a saboteur in our midst, but I’ll have to deal with that later. For now, I have a communications relay to repair.
Unfortunately, while I wait for my repair rig to make its way up the cargo lift, I get attacked by a giant scorpion monster. Thankfully, this beast has a giant orange spot on his tail so I know where to shoot. After dodging this scorpion’s stinger and its acid spit for a few rounds, I make it to my mech. However, the monster has retreated to a hole within the ice and I have to use my grapple hook to pull him out of his burrow and smash his face in. Now that I’ve got a giant walking tank on my side, this beast doesn’t stand much of a chance and I slice through his tail with my drill arm.
I’ll get this communications relay back up and running, but my search for that saboteur will have to wait until Lost Planet 3 hits stores sometime in 2013. I’m more excited than ever.

Looks good to me. Ill give it a shot.
This look a lot more Dead-Spacey than the other ones, which is a good thing. I will definitely be getting this when it drops.
I didnt like #1 So i will see how this turns out for me.
Capcom.... you have turned the corner into consistently decent looking games, thank you!
Im picking this game up for sure!
needs bigger bugs
I can't wait.
This game is looking pretty good. Hopefully this will be this best one yet.
Here's what I think the review will be: The over all gameplay will be enjoyable. The includsion of new akrid enemies will be nice and refreshing,but they'll become a little repetative like the quick time event when forcing off smaller enemies. Though I wish the games would get back to Wayne and his story, the one of Jim is a well addition.
*more technical stuff*
Score: 7.6 (or) 8.0
[Let it be so]
>.< Very hard attack monster strong game Lost Planet
This game is shaping up to be good.
