The latest chapter in the Lost Planet series comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and Windows PC in early 2013. The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterised the Lost Planet series return, harsher than ever before. Lost Planet 3 reveals new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history of E.D.N. III.
Lost Planet 3 introduces Jim Peyton, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) who are preparing the planet for colonisation, Jim joins his fellow pioneers at the Coronis base and begins surveying the uncharted terrain and obtaining samples of the planet’s energy supply – Thermal Energy. With NEVEC’s existing Thermal Energy reserve running low the fate of the Coronis mission depends on the natural source of the energy supply being located. Realising that this is a great opportunity for a huge pay-off and early ticket home to his family, Jim braves the risk of the treacherous environment.
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of both first and third person action. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the utility rig’s array of tools are just as useful at taking out Akrid as they are at helping him fulfill his contract work. Outside the rig the action switches to third person with Jim at the mercy of the elements. He’ll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat whilst surviving all that is thrown at him.
With a number of multiplayer modes and a compelling single player experience, Lost Planet 3 will delve deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique and dynamic environment of E.D.N. III.

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.
Lost planet 3 offers a much better story line that the previous 2 games, for one the game is revolved around one character Jim Peyton, in Lost Planet 2, you were a normal soldier in a group where as in Lost Planet 3 you have a main protagonist. Also in this game, you are able to choose between side missions and normal missions, there is also a central base with 3 floors, on one of the floors you are able to go to an armoury to buy new weapons and add attachments to them in order to make them better to give you a better fighting chance against the akrid. You also get your own mechanical RIG. I would say that overall the game has the right amount of hours game play in it. One thing you may notice about the game is that it has a strong resemblance to dead space. The game is great however, but in normal difficulty, even the best Lost Planet players may struggle as weapons become insanely weak
Here are the brief points
- Stunning Graphics
- Personal mechanical RIG
- Easy Control over Character and RIG
- Fast travel option
- Optional and side missions
- Armoury for weapons and upgrades
- Fascinating Storyline, the game revolves around one character instead of a main solider in a group like in Lost Planet 2
- Strong resemblance to Dead Space
- In Normal or higher difficulty, weapons become insanely weak, EG, I once had a boss fight, after emptying both of my weapons the boss was not even close to death, so even experienced Lost Planet 3 players may find it challenging
- The game lacks customisability options other than for weapons
- Sprinting is slow
- Main elements of the HUD randomly disapear during missions which you cannot retrieve until the end of the mission
So in conclusion, the game is Exciting and fun, it is not the best game in the world but I would certainly recommend. There are a few cons to the game but nothing so bad it would drive you away from the game
but larger aliens are very difficult to manage, when one appears in a video so you have no control, then they practically stand on top of you and you regain control but it feels like your in slow motion, you just can't get a bit of distance between you and them so you just shoot, reload, repeat until you or it dies
