GamesRadar - Lost Planet 3 gives a whole new meaning to hazard pay

GamesRadar - Being a mining engineer can be a dangerous occupation. Most modern-day miners need to worry about equipment failures, falling tools, and the occasional cave in. But on Lost Planet 3's icy world EDN-III, being eaten alive is definitely in the worker contract's disclaimer. Lost Planet 3 puts you in the boots of rig operator Jim Peyton, taking you back long before the previous games--when the series' primary energy source was first being discovered. As the new blood on a frozen mining installation, you're given contracts to do odd jobs like repair equipment, install thermal posts, and collect Akrid (indigenous killer monsters) DNA samples. Of course, vicious monsters and frozen wastes don't make your job a walk in the park. (Lost Planet 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
