Trailer - Lost Planet 3 "Captivate" - 16/04/12 [DAILY DOSE]


Today's DAILY DOSE is the trailer for the new sci-fi shooter - LOST PLANET 3.

The first 2 Lost Planet titles were good games at points - they stood out from the rest of the generic shooters by being the most OTT, epic, giant-alien blasters that you have ever player. Better than that, the second had 4-player co-op that kicked ass.

Sadly there were serious problems with both, particularly Lost Planet 2's difficulty level if you had no human players in your squad, and the confusing and harsh boss battles later in the game.

The series has been taken over by a new studio (because the first two titles were a financial failure) so are now being headed up by Spark Entertainment, the peeps that brought us Legendary and Turning Point: Fall of Liberty. These games had issues of their own (I have heard) however I've only played demos and I can say that they certainly could pull of tense setpieces - something perfectly fitting with the Lost Planet atmosphere.

So this game could be the "third time lucky" and offer: 
a compelling and epic single story that keeps you on the edge of your seat for at least 15 hours 
 an aweome multi-player experience in the genre of - 
"take giant mech, smash uber-giant alien into squishy bits.... with mates".

If they can pull it off - I'm telling you - this could be the ultimate co-op gaming night game. 
I really hope they do a good mecha multiplayer.....
