Leon from Plus XP writes "The Lost Planet series has a bit of a funny place in the gaming market - with fairly low sales, they have reached something of a cult status, and with me being a part of that niche market, I was glad to hear that Capcom decided to have a third crack at Akrid hunting on E.D.N. III.
However, there’s a bit of a divide between the fans of Lost Planet – some loved the original’s freezing climate and narrative-driven campaign, while others fell for the lush environments and arcade-style co-op story mode - I’m one of the few people I know of that actually loves both, for all of those reasons. My ideal Lost Planet title would be the setting and storyline of the first, with the additional co-op and replay value of the second. So when I heard that Lost Planet 3 would be a prequel set in the extreme conditions of the original, I was interested to see what it would bring to the series. This week, I got my hands on a copy to find out."
