Lost Planet 3 takes place 50 years before the original game. Jim Peyton, the main character, is a construction worker at NEVEC on E.D.N. III. He mines T-energy (aka. unobtainium), kills Akrids and does his job.
The mech gameplay seems fun but is severely limited and even though it tries, doesn’t make the dull shooting action fun. The graphics are mediocre to bad, as are the animations. Even the awesome space-western soundract is destroyed by awful level design. Take it or leave it, or wait for a patch/dlc/expansion that puts the mech in a more basic role.
