Lifeless Planet - review

carlyle | Jan. 6, 2016 | See all carlyle's reviews »

The plot is beautiful, full of good ideas and with a really huge potential, but is channeled into a funnel of banality that chokes the imaginative power. It makes you believe that open up unexplored directions, ending finally to withdraw dramatically, to become mediocre and predictable. Progression is interspersed with some puzzle dull, without difficulties, you have to use a mechanical arm to put a ball into a mechanism, or hit a key combination useful to open the big doors. There are parts of the game similar to modern platform and often, to justify the initiation of a sequence platform, the development team is to recover its protagonist a particular gadget, like a jetpack. Lifeless Planet is a barren wasteland where good ideas never take foot, and good intentions crash into a dusty soil. It could have been a game with a mysterious storyline, surreal and able to tease fans of science fiction, but the story quickly becomes a concentration of banality, with some ideas noteworthy concentrated exclusively at the beginning of the adventure.


Interesting but serverly lack key aspects

When I initially saw lifeless planet I thought it'd be intrigueing to play and could brin a lot to the table from decent graphics & challenging puzzles to an interesting story line. I am disappointed. I saw this as having a lot of potential but the largest challenges throughout the entire game are jumping from one place to another. Even the puzzles that did exist were either spacial, and requiring you to move things around, or you needing to go find something to move on. Honestly, it would have been better if they simply cut out all the puzzles and simply made this into a small comic book, because thats how much actual material is in the game. Graphics: Not horrible, but not fantastic, a bit lacking to be honest. Considering how much artisitc freedom they had its rather unfortunate that graphics weren't put to the next level in this. Sound: Actually probably the best part of the game, music wasn't horrible, wasn't terribly distracting and was rather pleasant. Not the best game music, but not bad. Storyline ***SPOILERS*** I could literally sum up the entire storyline in this. A man crashes, finds a Russian village, and a russian lab and a russian plant girl. He finds his crew dead, the girl leads him through leagues of parkour challenges, and then the girl sacrifices herself to cure the planet, man returns to a future Earth...rather lacking and pathetic. ***END OF SPOILERS*** P.S. Honestly the storyline is really lacking. Other: As I said, challenges were lacking and overall just a really poorly put together game. Its almost like they just put it together to simply sell it. It was an intersting idea, but hardly worth the $4 I paid for it, let alone the retail price of $20. Score is 40, would grade lower, but it did keep me slightly entertained for a couple of hours. Would not advice buying.

Story: 17/25 Gameplay: 13/25 Graphics: 15/25 Sound: 20/25 This game is best described as "meh." The story though intriguing at parts, feels boring and lifeless after a while and just overall is meh. The gameplay started out okay but just turned monotonous and was meh. The graphics are nice at times, but seem rather low quality especially for a $20 game. They just became bland and lifeless after a while and became rather meh. The sound was my favorite part. Everything sounded as I expected and I did feel the voice acting was good considering the other parts of this game. In the end, this game only took me four hours, but felt like forty. I just wanted it to be over but it decided to just drag on. Not worth anywhere near $20. Meh.


A captivating and interesting game all the way through

Lifeless Planet grips you from the opening cutscene and doesn't let go until its over. The game is full of "oh wow" moments where you just have to stop, look around and take in the environment. The game is very atmospheric. I loved how the game gave me multiple ways to get to where I was going. I never felt like I was trapped in a linear, small world. I always felt like I had the entire planet of Mars to explore. The game has a great story of which I cannot tell you anything about know...spoilers. I recommend this game to everyone as it is a solid and fun astronaut adventure.


Play it to the end. No regrets.

That's an amazing game with amazing story, in an amazing word with amazing art style. You land on an lifeless planted, crashing your aircraft and looking for your crew. The movement system is very very good, the graphics are amazing,it's not 1st person, but it isn't should be neither. You have quests during the game especially in the beginning like find supplies to survive, or to keep moving. That game is for the fans of the sci-fi action games. You won't regret buying that master piece.


Had a lot of potential

Lifeless Planet isn't a bad game by any means, but it has a lot of wasted potential. It's a very interesting concept that can shine at times, such as the feeling of adventure as you explore the titular planet. However, it has the same problem that many other games such as DayZ have. There really isn't a whole lot to do aside from the main mission. It would have been nice to see some side objectives to break up the monotony of the main mission. The graphics are okay, but the game's performance is lackluster. For such an okay-looking game, you shouldn't need at least a GTX 640 to play on high settings. There are frame drops at points, which break the game's otherwise great immersion. In conclusion, Lifeless Planet is a good game that could have been a great one if it had more time to be worked on.


Nice story and great atmosphere

If you liked The Swapper, this is the game for you. The game has a sensational overwhelming atmosphere, compounded with great soundtrack and quite interesting story. Minimalistic, although beautiful 3D graphics makes the planet looks really desolate and you can actually feel like You were totally alone there. Puzzles are not very demanding because base of this game is exploring and admiration of the planet. Honestly recommend.


Lifeless Planet: I'm a bit lifeless after play this game

I'm not really a huge of adventure games. This may be the reason why. The environment is basically bare which leaves the planet lifeless. It makes sense considering the title of the game is "Lifeless Planet" but it makes for a really boring game. Graphics are amazing in this game. It's Crysis-level amazing but it has that sense it's simply beautiful. A bit of light platforming here and there, but it's not really enough to sell it as a platformer game. Story-wise, it's pretty decent. Bored the hell out of me, but this is because of my personal preference of games. After a friend's recommendation, I played his copy of the game and I now regret the decision to play.


Very nice indie space game !

Well, if you like survival games and adventure games (also if its only one of them) you really should by this game. Basically the purpose of the game is surviving on a new planet that your space ship crashed on, and you are the only survivor. You have a limited amount of oxygen which you can refill by finding a special small machine that you can refill it there. If you get closer to this machine you will se something shining and that's how you know where it is and that's where you have to go next. And then when you have oxygen you keep discovering this planet ... Good luck !
