  1. With faster and more responsive controls, a better multiplayer framework, and a smoother character progression system, this one could have been surprisingly competitive in its category. But with so many problems holding it back, Lost Planet 2 is hard to recommend against all the other great shooters already out there.
  2. It's downright frustrating, actually, as with even the slightest tweaks, Lost Planet 2 could have been another winner for Capcom, and the epic sequel fans had hoped for. As it stands, Lost Planet 2 is a shell of a potentially great game, brought down by bizarre, dated, and counterintuitive design decisions. And that's a shame.

    Why is there almost no tutorial? Why can't co-op players join your game in the middle of a mission? Why is water traversable in some missions, but lethal in others? Why can your grappling hook only connect to some surfaces? Why is your healing ability mapped to the Start button?
  4. 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.

    This game definately has its perks. Multiplayer and coop are so obviously implied and encouraged that I felt like it was required. SomeThis game definately has its perks. Multiplayer and coop are so obviously implied and encouraged that I felt like it was required. Some people describe the faults of a game as control issues or graphical issues. This game does it better in both of these areas and we still have poeple complaining about how they presented movements and the animations which were actually better than before. The one problem I had with the story is the actual storyline! The story made no sense and I think that they made it as a last minute option.
    They might as well call it Lost Story 2.
    The biggest assets to this game though are graphics and the coop.
    Just dont play it if you dont have any friends
