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. Positive: 22 out of 63

  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.

    It's hard to recommend this game if you have no friends. However, if you're able to jump online with a few shooter-competent It's hard to recommend this game if you have no friends. However, if you're able to jump online with a few shooter-competent friends, LP2 can be loads of fun. True, the story is impossible to follow and the game does suffer from all the design flaws the critics gripe about, but what it does right, it does VERY right. The environments are beautiful, the level design is as good or better than anything else out there, and the difficulty curve is such that unless you and your buddies come up with a plan, work together, and take your time working through the levels, this game will be impossible. Personally, I like it when a game forces you to be smart about what your doing which LP2 does well. 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.I Sadly I only liked a few things about it, Frank West and Albert Wesker.

    Дерьмо! Это единственное, что приходит мне на ум. При названии Lost Planet 2 у меня у меня начинается стойкий рвотный рефлекс.
    ‌Какая же великолепная игра Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, как же я ждал продолжения......., но первое сомнение у меня зародилось когда сказали, что "в игре будет кооп". За чем? Подумал я, в атмосферной, подчёркиваю АТМОСФЕРНОЙ, сюжетной игре нужен кооп? Ну ладно дань моде, будет сюжет ну добавят кооп. хы. Как же я ошибался. Capcom обманула всех, она продала нам за цену полной игры мультиплеер от первой части! Ха!
    ‌Ни какого сюжета, ни каких персонажей, ни чего нового. Они умудрились засрать даже геймплей, ё маё стрелять стало хуже! Они умудрились угробить ту великолепную атмосферу, убили полностью!
    ‌Я не знаю такое ощущение, что людям заплатили чтобы они уничтожили свою перспективную франшизу!
    ‌Большего позорища я не припомню.
    ‌Lost Planet 2 это для меня разочарование десятилетия!
    ‌Может я простил бы это Capcom если бы она назвала эту игру как нибудь скажем "Lost Planet Multiplayer", но это дерьмо официальный сиквел. Который убил франшизу!
