Right lets start.
Lost Planet on the PS3 from Play.com at price on date 01/03/08 of £24.99 is a MUST BUY.
Well, not wanting to sound negative. The PS3 catalogue is still disappointing, but improving fast. And when a very good game comes along grab it.
This IS a very good game. When it came out on the Xbox 360 it was touted as a Gears of War beater. Well, that's a matter of opinion. But what it was and is, is a breath of fresh air or should I say colour in gaming. Yeah colour. The snowy wastes and the great design of the creatures really stand out from the crowd. Gears, COD 4, Unreal Tourney all dark and drab. Lost Planet is full of colour.
How's it play. Well excellently that's how. Over the shoulder run and gun. Dirty great guns you can pick up and drop or even add to your Mechs. Did I say Mechs? Yeah they are in this game. Walking tanks you jump in and out of. Now most games that use these fail. But in this game they work and are fun to use.
As mentioned there are dirty great monsters and I mean DIRTY GREAT MONSTERS. They range from small to huge, full of colour and fun to kill. Some hard and some easy. But most important, fun.
The online play is great fun and easy to get into. You also get all the add ons that I would have had to pay for on the 360.
A word of warning though, the cut scenes are awful. As every high quality rendered graphics, but the script is typical Manga. Awful, Awful and lastly awful.
As a PS3 gamer do yourself a favour and buy this from Play.com, you will not regret it.
