Lost Planet Ps3 Preview

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition was one of the best action titles to come out in 2007 on the Xbox 360. Luckily, fans of the Ps3 won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on it. Gameplay has remained untouched from the previous version, but expect to see a few more jaggies graphically, but nothing much to take away from the overall visual experience. The frame rate seems to be okay, about the same as the 360 version. Other than that, Ps3 fans should be getting roughly the same game that 360 owners already have the opportunity to experience. However, added to the Ps3 version are all of the downloadable multiplayer map packs that 360 owners had to download, as well as the PC multiplayer maps, right out of the box.

You play as Wayne, an ice pirate looking to avenge his father’s death at the hands of an alien race on an abandoned frozen planet. That sounds like the basis for a great story, but somewhere along the English translation, some serious plot lines seem to have been left out of the equation. Players on the Xbox 360 must have noticed to lackluster story, that really doesn’t make much sense. There is nothing new here.

But, it is gameplay that counts overall. Hopefully with some upped AI, Lost Planet should serve as competition to Uncharted for best action game on the system. The mech system is really alike any other mech game, but the controls are much tighter, and easier to handle. Blowing up gigantic, epic looking bosses is nothing short of great fun. Lost Planet is a third person shooter, for those of you who don’t know already, and that already means it’ll be a decent game. Things are looking good as of now, for one of FramesPerSecond’s most anticipated Ps3 titles of 2008.
