  • Summary: Lost Planet 2 picks up 10 years since the events of the original adventure and the landscape has evolved dramatically. With the success of terraforming activities, the planet's ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and other new environments. The story has advanced beyond Wayne Holden as players now follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirates on their quest to seize control of E.D.N III. Players move their heroes through different stories creating a truly unique and interactive experience. With this concept, gamers have the opportunity to engage in the story in a more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from various perspectives. The strongest features from the first game returns in Lost Planet 2 making fans feel right at home. In addition to the anchor actions that made the gameplay in Lost Planet a true 3-D experience, Lost Planet 2 allows gamers to gain tactical advantage with a wide variety of new actions. The game also contains a new addition to the enormous Akrids which were a fan-favourite in the first Lost Planet. Beyond the deep single player mode, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with one the most extensive multiplayer campaign seen in a shooter to date. The intense and action packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online to clear mission objectives with friends. [Capcom] Expand

  1. Lost Planet 2 is a splendid action game. The charm of new locations, the cooperative aspect greatly stressed, and the exalting look of MT Framework 2.0 are the main elements of a cool gaming experience.
  2. Lost Planet 2 is a really good game if you are looking for a solid multiplayer experience. Storytelling and the single player campaign are a bit on a thin side if you are a lone wolf.
  3. While the single-player portion feels like an afterthought due to repetitive mission design and weak AI, the multiplayer element carries the experience well and should keep you invested.
  4. In short, if Lost Planet 2 was a budget-priced multiplayer-only title, it would be hard not to recommend it; unfortunately it's a full-price game with a seriously flawed single player experience.
  5. A lack of genuine innovation and the presence of persisting issues from the first game is unforgivable and frankly, we expected more.
  6. Lost Planet 2 simply doesn't live up to the developer's grandiose plans. Other than the game's beauty, the big, challenging bosses, and the infrequent fun that can be derived from four-player co-op, this is a gaming experience that can easily be passed up.
  7. It’s just another deposit of digital cholesterol on a constricting artery that’s one cheeseburger away from being clogged forever by uninspired third-person shooters.

    I really loved lost planet 2. from the game-play, soundtrack, customization, weapons, storyline etc it was great. the downside about LP2 is the fact it had no matchmaking or party system to group up with ur online buddies. If they dont implement this in the next installment it will be a failure. Expand

    Awesome boss design. Awesome co-op gameplay. Too bad the online lobby system fails. The split screen is awful. And the online lobby system fails. I really wanted to love this game :( Expand

    I Sadly I only liked a few things about it, Frank West and Albert Wesker. Hey it would have received a 7 if it actually kept me interested. Not a terrible game, not a great game. However the demo, receives a 9. The demo was kick-ass. The game itself is okay. Expand

    I rarely trade a game back in before I'm done with it, especially when I have friends who are playing it. But that's how frustratingly bad Lost Planet 2 is. Just like the first, it's repetitive and full of flawed gameplay and controls. The graphics and huge monsters seem fun at first, but the more you play, the more you see how it's completely boring yet frustrating. I'm not a fan of Capcom and this game is an example why. Expand
