Lost Planet – Completed
The story this game is based around is defiantly something that has crossed my mind in the past. Humanity ruined the earth and we have to find a new home. Well they found one but sadly it is infested with giant insect like aliens, oh and there is snow. The idea is the planet needs to be terra formed, yet the bugs keep killing everyone. Compelling isn’t it?
The big drive on this game is the ability to use mechs or as the call them VS’s. The come with an assortment of weapons that can for the most part be interchanged to your liking. Some can hover, some have drills, and others can turn into snow mobiles. This adds to the game play and actually gives you a sense of power when using it. One of the best parts about the game is you don’t always have to have a VS to get through the game. One of what I thought was the hardest bosses I finished off with a rocket launch on foot, yet in a VS it is difficult to kill soldiers on foot. This was a great balance between the two fighting situations in the game.
This is one of the best games I have played since TLP for boss fights. The boss fights switched between fighting other VS’s to the bugs. While the VS battles were pretty straight forward and pure combat, the bug battles we stages and well thought out. The sequences to defeat the bugs came fairly quickly and were not incredible hard. This gives the player a sense of accomplishment with out much frustration.
The game to me was 8 out of 10. Great graphics, solid game play, compelling story and easy to control. Also according to Ben the multiplayer is incredible. Only playing a few online games myself, my own preference would be to play 2142 online rather then this.
