Myron de Vrede says:"The Lost Planet franchise has never been a series near-and-dear to me, despite the original being helmed by Blue Bomber’s father and mighty no. 1 Japanese game developer Inafune. It looked great at the time, really showing off the power of their new mt framework engine, but the gameplay was just a frigid mess… And don’t get me started on those woefully canned stagger-animations, pelting your character through the battlefield as rocket after rocket exploded on his chest.
It did, however, have this really cool Japanese vibe. The desolate, icy planet of E.D.N III and its endless, frozen wastelands were the perfect backdrop for the orange hues of its natural, monstrous and multi-legged inhabitants."
