Story elements, new takes on QTEs, and extremely cold temperatures. Though not cold enough to warrant wearing protective head gear:
It’s a change alright, after Lost Planet 2 was nailed for its story, but I’m not convinced yet the change was all good. Despite the improved voice acting, other things seems to have taken a hit, like the detailing on character faces. I’ll definitely miss the 4 player co-op though… perhaps they’ll include it as DLC already on the disc.
