|Lost Planet Review by FamitsuPublished by sjohn on Thursday, December 07, 2006
Last week Famitsu Xbox 360 Magazine reviewed the single player aspect of Lost Planet, giving it a total of 34 otu of a possible 40. These reviewers had given Dead Rising a 35 for those that are wondering on what scale Lost Planet will be on, it is shaping up to be one of the best titles for next year. Lost Planet is scheduled to ship in North America on Jan 12th, 2007 and those users that pre-order now will be able to download an exclusive multiplayer demo that has two maps instead of the standard one.
This week Famitsu has reviewed the full game, including both multiplayer and single player and the results are looking even better than last weeks single player only review. Famitsu is known for some pretty harsh reviews so scoring anything above a 30 is very impressive. Each of the reviewers gave the game a 9 out of 10, thus giving Lost Planet a final score of 36.
We have a translation of their review for those that are interested:
1) Cool that it feels like a big-budget sci-fi movie. You'll need to keep collecting Thermal Energy to stay alive, so you'll have to stay in the action at all times. If you find the game too hard, swallow your pride and play it on Easy mode. Playing against players from around the world looks like fun. SCORE = 9
2) Plays pretty much like an orthodox FPS game. The game balance lets you play through the game without much stress. Very inventive in that you have your human weapons and Vital Suit weapons, and you can use them all on foot. The slower movements of the hefty Vital Suits balance out their overwhelming firepower and add to the tension. SCORE = 9
3) From the realism of the snow and air in the environments to the battles that really put you in the middle of the action, this game has it all. Battles against giant enemies and robots are super-exciting. May take some people a little time to get used to the unique controls and gameplay concepts. Story plays out well, with twists and turns throughout the experience. Online multiplayer seems a bit bland, but it's fun to play nonetheless. SCORE = 9
4) Despite the weapon balancing being fine-tuned with the multiplayer in mind, the story mode truly is a blast! Battles with creatures in the extreme conditions are intense and very challenging. The bosses are big, and the pattern-recognition style of boss-conquering is very rewarding. SCORE = 9
As you can see, it looks like Capcom has another very nice Xbox 360 Exclusive title on its hands, we just can't wait to play it ourselves, be looking for our hands on review coming in January 2007.
