I’ll admit, when I’d heard that Spark was developing the third main entry in the Lost Planet franchise, I did not have high hopes. I highly doubted that they’d be able to make a good successor to what are two very challenging and fun third-person shooters. At best, I expected some drab cash-in of piss-poor quality because, hey, that’s what Capcom’s been fond of doing these days. Originally, I hadn't heard good things about Lost Planet 3, either, and thus avoided it, only to grow curious recently. So I gave the game a try and, frankly, it’s one of the biggest surprises from gaming I've seen.
