Spark Unlimited as the developer? Oh well, it can't be any worse than Lost Planet 2.

I played the 1st one on PC, but was actually pleasantly surprised by it.

So much in fact that I bought the 2nd one on day 1, leaving me with a big long nose and less money in my pocket. What a bad bad game.

Dont really know Spark Unlimited or their track record, but this is definately not a day 1 for me.. I'll wait to see the reviews..

I picked up the second on one of those Buy 2 get 1 free deals, and honestly, I have barely touched it. I have no interest in it. Same with the other game that I bought with it. Shame, that deal went to waste. I got two games, I dont play or have an interest in playing lol.

It is sad now when games that don't need to deserve sequels get sequels. It seems like almost everything gets sequels lately unless it completely bombs.

And even then, it STILL might get a sequel. It's as if devs and publishers are totally bereft of ideas.

How about making more games based on fantasy novel series? There are SO many good ones that have not been exploited, and the stories, plots, chars, are all written for them.

The first one was a very fun game and an attempt by Capcom to do soething different with a tired formula.

The second one stripped the IP of its personality and distinctions. It gave you politiics, warfare and intrigue through the eyes of the faceless soldiers on the battlefield. Meanwhile, all the important people were doing things offscreen or through radio transmissions.

Also, they thawed the planet.

And made it a squad based shooter.

All fatal mistakes.

It doesn't matter how good Lost Planet 2 might have been. Why make it a Lost Planet game if there's very little that ties it to the first game?

The focus was clearly on the multiplayer aspects, rather than on crafting a good game with compelling mechanics and the unique type of isolation that a desolate snowbound environment brings.

Lost Planet 2 was generic as hell.

They should give up on this franchise, unless they return it to a single player game, re-ice the planet and return it to the narrrative that made it so wierd and unconventional to begin with. Multiplayer components should be always be ADDED value, not the core experience.

I have spoken.

Weeeeell...

Based on that trailer, (which if you missed it, showed a sole protagonist fighting creatures in a frozen landscape), this might just be your game.

For me, the first game had a lot of, (wasted), potential. The second game suffered from the same control issues as it's predicessor, and somehow managed to make the story even less comprehensible.

The fact that there is a Lost Planet 3 boggles the mind...

I wanted to like them, but the first one was mediocre and the second one was total crap. Capcom needs to do a lot better this time. The market is flooded with third-person shooters. Being near the bottom in quality does not cut it considering Capcom is not a little indie company.

These games have always fallen short to what they could have been. They looked fascinating. But as a long time gamer, I could look at te game and tell it handled like shit. Add to that terrible HUDs and you have a broken game. No character? Final nail in the coffin. Better get it together. As many have said, it baffles the mind to see a series with an identity crisis to get yet ANOTHER sequel. WTF man, WTF.
