I knew of the game share of problems before purchasing it, I was really eager to play it anyway because it had a good story with an original direction. And I wasn't dissapointed one bit. Well maybe I'm exaggerating but I want to recommend this game if you dig anything I write here about it.
First of all, I disliked the first 2 games that came before it. Arcade shooting is done right in those previous games, but there isn't much else to back it up unless you have the hots for Lukka.
I can assure you this game goes into a different direction with more visceral heavier combat, and also opens up with a good story that has very well characterized characters and good worldbuilding. This last one is a real improvement.
While combat is visceral with very beffy guns that are few but are as good as they should to get a good shooter fun, gameplay sometimes gets repetitive. The slow cooking of the story (wich I really dig) sometimes also puts the pacing in a slow move. But you'll be compensated with new guns, new enemies and some cool devices for you worker mech.
Yep, working mech. Combat has two facets: you shooting (and dodgin, cuz the akrid creatures are very vicious), and you brawling with giant akrid with a mech mano a mano. It's pretty satisfying to eviscerate those biggies with big industrial tools. You also travel on this thing, and it may be to slow, but don't panic! there's fast travel tool eventually unlocked.
Controls are all over the place, but at least the ones used for combat get the things done. And thankfully because the monsters you face are really dangerous. Akrid behave like the vicious creatures they're told in the story instead of those dumb bullet sponges of previous games. Some of the are so cunning that I recommend getting your upgrades (moded bullets, weapons, rig pieces) as soon as you can. This game wasn't easy.
Yep. there are QT events , but they're well placed and are actually tense, like trying to aim to the monster to attack instead of just bashing your keys to the extreme of breaking them.
The game is overall consistent and it has an identity apart of the other ones, with the situation being "you're an everyman in an hostile land away from your family, for them". The only Lost Planet game I enjoyed really. It's underrated if you ask me.
Didn't found any game breaking bugs in my long and worthy playtroughts, but I have a tip for you: when the game is telling you ROTATE WASD in your rig, just press F reppeatedely.
