Building (Critical) Consensus: Lost Planet 3
Remember Capcom? Weren’t they a great developer and publisher back in the day? Whatever happened to those guys? Oh, that’s right. Capcom is still in business and making games that do nothing to help their iconic legacy in the industry. The company that brought us Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and more have hit a bit of a dry spell recently.
The latest disappointing game out of Capcom is Lost Planet 3 which, despite the name, is actually a prequel to the first Lost Planet game. The critics aren’t very fond of this one. The general consensus is that the gameplay is tired, dull and repetitive, even if it does a better job with the narrative than its predecessors.
