Interesting protagonist and setting.
Decent graphics and sound.
Inconsistent level design.
No guns on your rig.
Walking through the same icy tunnel yet again.
Fighting a boss that you've already faced before.

Even if you haven't played any of the other Lost Planet games, Lost Planet 3 is a great game with a lot of action and a good...88

Lost Planet 3 takes narrative steps forward while standardizing its sci-fi action, for better and for worse. It's a decent game, neither a mess nor a triumph. Its story pulls you through, even when the missions themselves don't deliver any sense of urgency. Shooting giant bugs on a hostile world is still entertaining. But in this wholly adequate prequel, a struggling series has lost some of its identity.50

Lost Planet 3 at least has a respectable story and some combat variety to it, even if the pieces don’t always come together quite right. Jumping in and out of the mech keeps it from being just another cover-based shooter. If not for level design that’s full of frustrating inconsistencies, it might even have been good enough to fully recommend.62

Lost Planet 3 has its plus points as a piece of sci-fi, but as an action game it’s another damp squib in a series that never seems to heat up. Likeable protagonists and an interesting story can’t make up for the dull combat, the annoying and repetitive boss battles or the sheer amount of time-wasting in the game, and it’s nowhere near as exciting or enjoyable as the broadly similar Dead Space 3.50

It's worrying when the nicest thing you can say about a game is that the early sections manage to be boring in an interesting way, but it's true for Lost Planet 3. It's a game that manages to make third-person shooting feel like work - and one that makes work feel like something that more games should explore.40

I don’t hate Lost Planet 3. There’s still a base satisfaction to popping orange Akrid weak points and mopping up goo. I even made a point to track down most of the hidden collectibles. The first two games balanced out any unsavory elements with mega moments and straightforward fun. The third entry simply doesn’t have enough thermal energy to overcome its many problems.65

Jim Peyton's story as played in Lost Planet 3 is a mixed proposition, in need of trimming to the monster-shooting tedium, yet anemic in its core interactions. The workmanlike effort by Spark Unlimited, its best yet, comes out less believable and less interesting than Grandpa Peyton's final words: the story of a man immune to the cold, who wasted most of his life shooting monsters in the back.50

Lost Planet 3 destaca por muy pocas cosas, y a su favor apenas juega la estimable intención de proponer un mundo abierto que recorrer que, lamentablemente, ha sido bastante mal ejecutado.67

Sin querer hacer demasiada sangre, Lost Planet 3 no nos ha decepcionado, porque sinceramente tampoco esperábamos demasiado, tras que lo que habíamos visto y jugado de él en los últimos meses. No consigue aportar nada ni hacer algo especialmente bien dentro del género de la acción en tercera persona.65

Once you've played the first few hours of the campaign, you'll feel like you've already seen it all as you drag through the remainder of the plot. LP3 goes through the motions of the typical action game, never delivering any surprises or gameplay elements that would make a memorable experience. Instead, you'll just get to fight a giant crab boss for the fourth time.50
