Lost Planet 3 isn’t the hum-drum shoot-a-thon you’re probably expecting, but one of the most character-filled sci fi stories the industry has produced in years.

One of my favourite things about being in games media is how many more titles I get a chance to try out that I might otherwise never have heard of. Of course, the downside is I sometimes have to get along to events and produce comprehensible coverage on subjects I have little knowledge and zero interest in, but first world problems, am I right?
That’s the attitude I took into a recent Lost Planet 3 preview session. “I cannot muster even one quarter of a sub-standard fuck about this game,” I text to a friend. “I thought I was sick, but I ran a diagnostic and it turns out I already have a surfeit of shitty generic third-person sci fi shooters. Who would have thought?”
