    The new Colonies Edition lured me back for a third circuit with beautiful graphics that echoed the original game and a wealth of exclusive new features.
  2. Still one of the better action titles on the game market and it offers some intense and fun multiplayer gaming that is only comparable by a few other games.
  3. If you are a first time player to this game you will really enjoy this title. However, if you own the first version, read the above score as 6/10, as with only a few new multiplayer additions, it’s not really worth the cash.
  4. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition crams a lot of new content into the frame of a respectable game.
  5. 75
    If you fell in love with Lost Planet in its previous iteration, you'll find a lot to like here. If you haven't given it a try, this is the version to pick up and have a go with.
  6. 75
    This is one just for the blasting fans though, game objectives are clear at all times and there's no "pesky" things like immersive storyline or challenging puzzles to "get in the way" of mowing down enemies. Bizarrely enough, Colonies Edition is incompatible with the original game in online play so you can only play with other purchasers of the re-release; make what you will of that.
  7. Lost Planet: Colonies Edition has all of the same problems the original game had, only this time with a cheaper price point and a ton of new content.

And the multiplayer aspect has alot of maps, modes and weapons that are fun to play on and with. I would give it a 10 but that would be too biased in my part. So a 9 is the worst I can give it.

    Beautiful game to be seen in motion. Explosion and particle effects will make you gawk (if sometimes in excess). Rarer effects such as Beautiful game to be seen in motion. Explosion and particle effects will make you gawk (if sometimes in excess). Rarer effects such as onscreen motion blur and a beautifully smooth animations make Lost Planet quite the looker. Storyline is rather weak, but it exists, just use your imagination. Gameplay is where this excels, pure arcade action. If you're looking for something deeper, I can see that LP would not be best suited for your fancy, but if you just want to blow crap up and look awesome, this is the way to go. Multiplayer is good, but few people will appreciate it. The game is cheap, just buy it and see what you think, there isn't much to lose! Expand

    This game is only worth buying if you didnt pick it up the first time round. This company should be working on better titles not re-making old ones.

    Good game with one massive problem. The game is actually registered as an entirely different game to the normal version on the same console.Good game with one massive problem. The game is actually registered as an entirely different game to the normal version on the same console. They completely split the playerbase and the amount of people to pick up the colonies edition is so few it will always be hard to play online. Myself and a friend didnt realise this was the case. We heard the multiplayer was pretty good and played the multiplayer demo which is still on Live. We assumed colonies was like any other special edition and just included the download content from before. One of us bought colonies and the other bought a pre owned copy of the original only to find we had the same game but couldnt play each other. Seems like such a huge mistake to make for one of the worlds biggest publishers Capcom. Its not worth the hassle. Expand
