5.0 out of 5 stars a highly atmospheric game, 5 Dec 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lost Planet 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This is one of the most atmospheric shooters I have played, it is on the same level as the first Dead Space game.
If you like the Dead Space games and Red Faction Armageddon you should definitely have a look at Lost Planet 3.
It is a top-notch sci-fi horror shooter with great atmosphere, characters, storytelling, combat and music.

Unlike the previous games Lost Planet 3 feels more like a horror game, where the atmosphere is perhaps the most important aspect of a game.
Playing it you quickly realize just how closely inspired it is by the films 'The Thing' and 'Alien'. It shows in the music, designs and visuals.

The world in Lost Planet 3 is dark and claustrophobic.
The landscapes remind me of LV-426 in the 'Aliens' film crossed with that of 'The Thing'.
It is a cold, dark and foreboding place. The developers made the GUI as sparse as possible, increasing the tension in the atmosphere.

They did a great job with the music as well. It is very tense when it needs to be and hectic during battle.
The lead character has much more depth than those in the previous two games. It is actually closer to something you'd see in a Rockstar game.
The storyline is deeper and more intriguing than before. It feels more "serious". It is well written and cinematic.

What's new in the gameplay is that you can upgrade your weapons, some of your skills, and your mech. Most of it you can't do immediately in the game.
What's also new is the first-person cockpit view for your mech movements and fights.
You have main missions and side missions. Doing the latter grants you upgrades and currency.
There's more variety in the enemies and they seem to have more unique abilities than in the previous games.

Lost Planet 3 was big surprise for me, I liked both of the previous games but this one has really hit the mark.
