The Action Heats Up In Lost Planet 3

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.

  • Looks awesome.

  • 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.
