To be honest I've completely forgotten about this game. It seems decent, but doesn't seem worth 60 bucks. Hell I don't know why the devs wanted to change up the Lost Planet gameplay formula. Nobody never asked for it, and now were left with this. I'm probably one of the few people that enjoyed Lost Planet 2, and I didn't even think it was a bad game.
I remember seeing it like 2 E3's ago, it was first person and had mechs, and it was being developed by Spark Unlimited. Then cut to now and its already being released? Time really does fly.
I actually thought Turning Point and Legendary could've been really good games, the ideas behind them were good. Turning Point turned out to be just a bad game and Legendary was just generic but still a better step in the right direction, so I hope they finally nail down a good game this time around, however I've never had much interest in Lost Planet so I probably won't even be checking this out unless it turns out really good and standalone
If they didn't change developers than sure! But they did so nope! I haven't seen much of the game (just skimmed through the video above) and it still doesn't look that great. Doesn't help that I have zero faith in the new developer.
I should note that I loved both Lost Planet 1 & 2 despite their flaws.
Given the pedigree of the developer, I'm going to go out on a limb and say this won't be very good. I'd love to be proven wrong and for them to finally make something of quality, but I won't hold my breath.
I won't be buying it and I doubt many others will be given the total lack of awareness for it. Seems like it's just being sent out to die.
On a side note, LP2 had some cool things going for it, though overall it needed a lot of improvement. I also recently just played through the most of the first one, and apart from the fact that it should be called "Getting Knocked Down: The Video Game", I thought it was pretty good.
I really enjoyed both Lost Planet 1 and 2. The story in the first was pleasant enough, aside from the over-the-top extreme kind of ending, but what I really enjoyed about Lost Planet 1 and 2 was the unique feel of the shooting. I totally understand that it wasn't the most widely appreciated style, outright hated by some, but it was really the only unique thing this series had going for it so I'm sad to see it become just another third person shooter in that regard. I will likely give it a go down the line but I have no interest in rushing out to buy this.
Nah, I don't think it looks very good. It reminds me a little of that last Red Faction game they put out mixed with Dead Space 3. I'd love to be proven wrong, but it does look kinda like the standard third person shooter fare that will get a bunch of middling to low scores. I realised I needed to stop buying games like this earlier this year, there's always the temptation when the genre is one of your favourites.
The first one was amazing (at least, I thought so at the time). The campaign got kind of crazy, and the multiplayer was a lot of fun. Part 2 was different, but I missed the isolated feel of the original.
And I thought this looked interesting but I have so many games being played at the moment. And once the Vita arrives on Wednesday I have a dozen more.
So no, in short.
Capcom is definitely just sending this one out to die in the cold.
I see what you did there...unintentionally or not! But yeah, I still wouldn't mind a QL or at least some player commentary posted over here to see whatever it's terrible or at least semi-decent. At least it'll probably be cheap during the next big sale, since it already costs 39.99 €uros over at Europe.
Nope, Killer is Dead and Rayman Legends for me this week. I'm also still chewing through The Wonderful 101 and Saints Row IV and have The Bureau to play.
I'm kind of interested in Lost Planet 3, it doesn't look completely awful, but it's definitely something I'd pick up in a bargain bin.
