God is a Geek: "If you were a fan of the Lost Planet series already, there is a good chance that you won’t like Lost Planet 3 very much at all. Mechs are reduced to a mere sideline – mainly a form of transport – for this game, with most of the action taking place on foot. In that respect, the game is missing the unique identity that made the franchise stand out. There also isn’t nearly as much action as fans might be used to. However, the measured pace and involving storyline might well attract a whole new audience to the game, who are looking for a different gameplay experience."
