Lost Planet

Lostplanet01

No doubt about it, Xbox 360 games are purty. Here's one that caught my eye on the show floor: Lost Planet, a third-person shooter set on a hostile, icy world. The near-constant swirling snowstorm and convincing semi-destructible environments really bring this title to life. Check out a couple of screenshots.

Lostplanet02 Capcom made a good call in making the game third-person: it gives the

player a sense of scale for the enemies and the game world, which would

probably be highly disorienting if it were first-person. Gameplay-wise,

yeah, it's a shooter. You shoot things. But in a fun way.
