  • Summary: Driven to the brink of extinction in ice-covered wastelands, humankind fights to survive, from the deadly elements to the hostile alien creatures known as the Akrid. With only fragments of his memory intact, Wayne Holden must struggle to recover his past and the answers to E.D.N. III's secrets. While the search for the truth could lead to valuable allies and a means to save humanity, what he finds instead could be worse than he ever imagined! PSN Enabled: 16 diverse multiplayer maps right out of the box. 16 Player multiplayer cooperative and versus battles. On-Foot and In-Vehicle Modes: Command heavily armed bipedal vehicles or switch to more stealthy exploration on-foot. Vast and Vivid Environments: Snowstorms, arctic winds, towering buildings and mountains of ice create cinematic stunning visuals and breathtaking landscapes. Next-Gen Realism: Immerse yourself in the brutal chilling world of Lost Planet as you labor through waist-deep snow, hear the crunch of ice with each step, and fly backward from explosive force during battle. Alien Encounters: Face off with an array of Akrid, from massive rolling behemoths and long-legged ground-dwellers to fast-flying swarms overhead. [Capcom] Expand

  1. This is Capcom in fine and original fettle, with a gut-punch of a shooter that's guaranteed to thaw out your wintry fingers. [Mar 2008, p.104]

    Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a powerful, bombastic exercise in mayhem.
  3. 73
    It looks good, plays well and is a bit too short.
  4. Lost Planet provides the PlayStation 3 with a third-person shooter that is unique and quirky, but not necessarily strong enough to warrant a purchase for most gamers.
  5. We can't help but notice the lack of improvements in this translation. An opportunity has clearly been lost here, despite remaining a good game.
  6. I do think the online component is rather decent, but the single-player campaign isn't enjoyable, thanks to the game's rubbish speed.
  7. Had the Playstation 3 version of Lost Planet been released as a launch game of the console, it would probably have gotten less critisism. In the meantime many better games have passed it by, which makes this one just another shooter. No one will get sleepless nights from this title.
