    Great action game including huge boss fights against over-sized monsters. A must have for those who like to play coop games for up to four players. In case you play the game alone alongside AI partners the difficulty level may frustrate you from time to time.

    The PC version of Lost Planet 2 solves some problems present on consoles, offering some excellent visuals thanks to the DirectX 11 support. Unfortunately, the developers could not remedy to the flaws of the original game (interesting plot but anonimous characters, several short missions in the single player campaign and a mediocre AI), but the combat system is still excellent and there are plenty of nice multiplayer modes. If you loved the first Lost Planet, this sequel won't disappoint you, definitely.

    Lost Planet 2 is one of the best co-ops that we have seen. It has the same AI problems that we saw in his first part... but his great multiplayer doesn't need it.

    If you haven't snapped up Lost Planet 2 in a bargain bin some place for consoles, the PC port has been out and runs like a dream.

    Defrosted sequel to the first Lost Planet brings new and interesting jungle environment to the scene. Unfortunately, the sidekick bots are not-so-smart and are awkward to control. [Dec 2010]

    If you've burned through other multiplayer or co-op options, then there might be something for you in Lost Planet 2. The single player campaign is lengthy at around 14 hours with full co-op support and the multiplayer has plenty of maps and modes. Just do yourself a favor: buy some insurance for the controller you'll invariably throw across the room at one of Lost Planet 2's seemingly endless design and interface issues.

    Lost Planet 2 is a disjointed mess without style or substance. The developers don't bother themselves with well-designed levels, clever triggers and challenging AI. They just throw you into a hostile crowd, hoping that you'll have fun.

It took me a while to get going, and the controls were quite a bit different from the original game yet the story and the action were better than ever. Some might say the story is shallow and linear. However, there was plenty of action and it held my interest throughout I would recommend this game to anybody Expand

    In the space of time it took to get from XBOX and PS3 to Windows, LP2 was treated to some of the pickiest reviews I've ever seen. DespiteIn the space of time it took to get from XBOX and PS3 to Windows, LP2 was treated to some of the pickiest reviews I've ever seen. Despite having not played the first Lost Planet game at the time and the almost unanimous negative-to-average critical reaction, the stunning visuals and trailer prompted me to buy this game and I'm definitely glad I ignored those reviews. The design, interface and other issues noted with console versions were (for me) non-existent. I don't have a problem with Lost Planet 2 because of its arcade sensibilities, it's not attempting to tell you a story with the scope and pathos of classic literature, all you need from the premise is to pick up a gun, dash through wonderfully crafted (if at times linear) environments and shoot at some of the biggest and best-designed alien creatures ever put on a computer screen. Many critics picked on Lost Planet for being faceless or lacking engaging characters but that's moot, really - it's not that sort of game. It's fun, which is all that should matter. Expand

If you have a nice rig hooked up to a high def monitor this game is worth getting. That said, their are a few issues. The game play in this sequel is a pretty big departure from the 1st in my opinion. I have yet to complete it, but thus far (about 7 hrs in) I have not used the VS's that much at all. Most of the campaign mode has been done in little short missions which do not usually last long. This coupled with substantial load times for missions makes for a somewhat broken up experience. There is also a heavy focus on a multilayer campaign mode in this game. I personally liked the way the first one was done and wish they stuck to the format used in it. But in conclusion, the graphics in this game make up for my gripes in game play. I think this is worth having if for nothing else than to show off what DX11 is capable of with the gorgeous cinematics that are offered frequently in the game. Expand

    From what semt a guilty pleasure game i honestly got good amount of fun out of it. While story and campaign wise its not as good as first LostFrom what semt a guilty pleasure game i honestly got good amount of fun out of it. While story and campaign wise its not as good as first Lost Planet, there's barely any focus on narrative or story at all, youre just playing as certain grunt from different factions throughout the different missions with a cinematic cutscene popping up time to time trying to make it look like more tradiotional story based game. The single player campaign simply plays out like co-op one, only with AI squad mates which are not as useless as many say they are, they can get stuff done, but of course they can be a pian in the butt often aswell. Gladly missions themselves can be pretty fun, there's enough cool setpieces along with giant Akrid boss battles.

    Where it mostly improves is the gameplay, youre more mobile, agile on the battlefield, theres dedicated sprint option, gunplay feels more solid with again pretty well done sound effects and decent, weighty overall gun feel for a third person shooter. Sadly there isnt that big of a focus on VS mechs anymore, theres still some later missions where you get to use them in fighting, but no where near as much as in first game.

    Like with Extreme Condition, LP2 on PC has few issues, like shoddy frame rates at times when you get close to a big boss in game, with lots of smoke, explosions on screen and overall when too many things happen at once the fps can drop, but nothing that brakes the experience atleast. Also upon starting up the game in DX11, game can crash without warning in menu screen sometimes, however atleast it can be actually played in DX11, unlike 1st game which seems to be utterly broken when ran in its DX10 mode with game crash guaranteed every time.

    So if you enjoyed Extreme Condition gameplay, you should give this one a shot, just expect less if you liked first game's story and characters, cuz you wont find them in Lost Planet 2, if you have real people to play with in co-op, game's even more worth your time.
