First, this game isn't nearly as bad as the critics would have you believe. The shooting is very competent and the structure of the game, while not unique, is pretty cool. It basically feels structure-wise at least, like the first Arkham game. An open world that opens up more as you gain new equipment and upgrades, more or less Metroid style. I love the aspect of being a miner essentially in a giant mech, setting forth into undiscovered and dangerous territory on a frozen desolate planet. This scenario lends itself to a great atmosphere.
Secondly, This game is literally nothing like the previous 2 entries, unfortunately. Lost Planet 2 is probably the most unappreciated game of all time, and is easily one of the best co-op experiences ever. So, obviously fans of the series will be turned off by Lost Planet 3 at least initially.
While not much of a Lost Planet game mechanically, LP3 stands on its own as worthwhile experience in my opinion. The music from Jack Wall (Mass Effect 3) is outstanding and haunting. The core gameplay is good enough to not get repetive or frustrating in the some odd- 15 hour playtime. Taking out big monsters on an ice planet will always be rad, so its got that going for it. The story is actually really good, which is a first for the series, and it basically tells the story of how EDN III came to be the way we find it in Lost Planet and Lost Planet 2.
All that said, Lost Planet has gotten a bum wrap by critics in its last two entries. There is plenty here to enjoy, and if you like scifi or third person shooters, you will be suprised by how much you enjoy this game. I know I was. 7.5/10
