Lost Planet: Satisfying Controls and Graphics

Posted BY: Dr. Worm, Friday, May 12, 2006, 5:55PM EST

Lost Planet may have an engaging, beautifully artistic sci-fi story - I don’t know.

What I do know, judging by the few minutes I had to play their demo, is that the controls and graphics are amazing. There is something simple and pure about picking up a big gun, running around in the snow and blowing stuff up. I was hooked instantly.

The third person view in this game is a lot of fun. Running backwards and shooting over your shoulder seems like such a straightforward mechanic, not nearly as complex as the slow-mo action sequences we are used to, but in a weird way it’s very satisfying.
