  1. Some new content, some general bug-fixes – is that really enough to pay for again or would it have been wiser to provide Colonies as some free content update? One may think about that whichever way one likes to – also about the fact that Colonies players won’t be able to join those only owning the original game playing online. After all the game comes up as a nicely re-worked action shooter that will be fun to play for several hours – especially for those new to the series – but unfortunately that’s about it.
  2. Overall LPECCE is something of a contradiction. While its additional features are aimed at the hardcore lovers of tundran gaming, the fact that it is incompatible with the original Lost Planet is mystifying. Forcing players to start from scratch, with their only reward being some more achievements is an unnecessary irritation.
  3. Total PC Gaming
    Play it until your free month of Live runs out, then move on. [Issue#9, p.58]
  4. PC PowerPlay
    If you haven’t played Lost Planet before, and mindless shooting of various people/things in some gorgeous locales is your cup of tea, the budget price sounds just about right. But for everyone else, it’s safe to give this one a miss. [Aug 2008, p.62]

    The story and the sound effects are okay. Graphics is a quite old in 2012. :) Bad Console port. Hard controlling. And the game is short.

    I think game is an average one ? Bored me so many times, which forced me to finish it on few tries :)
