Lost Planet 3 may take place on the same planet of E.D.N. III as the first two games, but that planet is going through its Ice Age at the time of Lost Planet 3.  This means a variety of old and new Akrid are ready to attack you in this prequel.

Sepia

No, this isn’t a trashy Instagram filter! Sepias are small, swarming Akrid with large, three-jawed mouths. They attack by opening their jaws and charging at their opponent. When alone, they will avoid danger rather than attack, which is why they tend to group together and attack in swarms. As tripods with sharp legs, they are capable of climbing vertical walls and even walking on ceilings. Check out these beautiful bad boys!
 

Enbee

Enbees are the primitive version of the Lost Planet series’ Raibee. The Enbee is a wasp-like Akrid that is capable of flapping its wings at high speed to gain great speed for ambushing from above. As if I didn’t already have a big enough fear of Apoidea, this game seems intent on providing more fuel for my phobias:

So, prepare yourself for buzzing, swarming Akrid in the freezing world of Lost Planet 3. Now excuse me while I go hide under my desk for the rest of the day!

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

  • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

    I played Lost Planet 1. Crazy game, crazy difficult too. Got it for R27 (delivery included).

    Was I surprised at it. Really crazy, but really fun. I’d look at this game

    • CypherGate

      Lost Planet 1 was top. I enjoyed it a lot apart from some cheesy acting lol Lost Planet 2 didnt appeal much to me. Hope this will be good

        It’s not very much like either, to be honest. It’s a pretty rad action game, but it’s not “Lost Planet.” Western Developer, and all.

        • CypherGate

          That kinda sucks cause something about Lost Planet 1 caught me. The atmosphere felt cold, isolated and mysterious in some sense. It just felt different in some way. Ill still give LP3 a go though.

      • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

        Never jammed LP2, kinda glad I didn’t now :)

        • CypherGate

          You lucky! LP2 was multiplayer orientated and thats not a bad thing. To me it just felt disconnected from the first one. No real single player campaign with a decent story. Just all out multiplayer and at the time i wanted to play a single player follow up to LP1. Even if the protagonist would be different.

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            Only thing I hated was the plot.
            Bad news…build up build up almost good news almost good news
            BAD NEWS
            Aaaaaand repeat

            But the rest was quite fun

          • CypherGate

            Plot is very important to me. It was must catch my interest. The game did look fun though. I played it on PC…. Installed it, tried it, hated it, deleted it lol

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            Yar, I deleted it after the ending, was also quite bloorie difficult, promised myself never again

    • Jonah Cash

      I also played Lost Planet 1 it was awesome!! But 2 just felt wrong somehow, never even tried to buy it… But 3 looks like the real deal again!! Maybe…. just maybe…

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    This game is flying way below the radar, and by that I mean 6 feet under
