The story has advancedLost 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

Score distribution:

  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. Capcom has chosen to make this sequel a cooperative action game, and the result is undoubtedly solid. Playing the main campaign with three friends can give a lot of satisfaction and the boss fights are simply awesome. Unfortunately playing solo you will find a lacking friend AI. Good graphics and a competitive multiplayer mode complete the nice offer of Lost Planet 2.

    If you can weather the campaign's slow start and the game's wildly overwrought menu system, you'll find more than enough incredible content here to satisfy your Akrid-killing, giant robot-piloting fix. [June 2010, p.74]
  4. Unfortunately its also plagued by some rather serious design flaws that could've been solved if Capcom had taken a look at what the competition was doing. If you can look past that than you'll enjoy this game, but you might have to deal with some frustration along the way.
  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 has the potential to be a great game, but the different gameplay elements aren't polished enough. So in the end, Lost Planet 2 is a mixture of a lot of stuff, but nothing in the mix is better then mediocre.
  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 isI 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

It isn't incredible by any means but it offers a fun two-player campaign that pits you against both human enemies and akrids, fierce aliens. Boss fights are crazy and some of the technology you get to use is awesome, like the mech suites or this giant cannon. The multiplayer is plagued by people rolling constantly to avoid damage among other annoyances, though. Also, the story is never superb. It's a game that shooter fans (third-person shooter fans, in particular) should play but it isn't something that will blow you away. Expand

    Great looking game just like everyone says and the musucal score is fantastic but there are more then a few faults with the game. everyone Great looking game just like everyone says and the musucal score is fantastic but there are more then a few faults with the game. everyone has mentioned the controls but one thing not mentioned is how totally awful Japan is at writing stories. I past the game and I have not clue as to what happened to why I was doing anything. I will give them credit, it didn't have an ass kicking school girl, gigantic swords, gay dudes with white/purple feathered hair, father issues, quivering eyes or a girl the guy liked but didn't admit it. The multiplayer aspect was really cool where you had to work as a team to operate certain machines and weapons but I think this game is more of a sign of good things to come then a classic. Expand

    Lost Planet 2 is a pretty mediocre third-person shooter

    The game looks nice and has solid gunplay.Also has 2 player local co-op,which is always nice.

    However,the game has some of the cheapest AI I have ever seen,and if you fail a mission,you will be sent back MULTIPLE LEVELS.These two flaws led to a lot of frustration,significantly lessening my enjoyment of the game.

    Lost Planet 2 is a game people who love backtracking [all 4 of them] will love.For the rest of us steer clear unless you want a lot of frustration.
