Lost Planet 3 pitches us with the prequel angle, back to E.D.N. III’s wintry climes and events well before players first took up arms against the bioluminescent, insectile Akrid. The game’s new Western developer, Spark Unlimited, has a mixed track record (see Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Legendary), but the last game in this series was more than respectable, and I guess we’ll just to have to hope that series creator Kenji Oguro, who takes a co-director credit here (though it’s really Matt Sophos’s baby), saw fit to ensure this one will be, too.
