Expert Review

  • Summary: Lost Planet 2 could be the most changed sequel in all of video game history. No characters return, snow only makes a very limited appearance, and it’s all about co-op this time around. The story doesn’t matter a bit, but I’ll take any plotline that takes me to outrageously realized locations like zero-G outer space bases, underwater caverns filled with massive sea snakes, and speeding mechanical sand ships battling each other like high tech pirates.

Lost Planet 2 Review

PlayDevil
18 June 2010
  • Summary: Basically Monster Hunter for the 360 & PS3 under a different name, " Lost Planet 2 " is a decent game, but at the same time, a crushing disappointment. The single player could be good with some simple changes- the checkpointing and lack of drop-in/ drop-out co-op just ruin everything and make the game feel really quite dated. At least the multiplayer returns, and still feels pretty good, whilst it’s nice to see non-snow based maps.

PS3/X360 Review - 'Lost Planet 2'

WorthPlaying
25 May 2010
  • Summary: Lost Planet 2's story has advanced beyond Wayne Holden as players will now follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirates on their quest to seize control of E.D.N III. Players will move their heroes through different stories creating a truly unique and interactive experience.

  • Conclusion: Looking back over my experience with Lost Planet 2 in comparison to the first installment, you can easily see that Capcom wanted and succeeded in providing the same great experience you found in Lost Planet with Lost Planet 2, while also fixing several of the issues that plagued the first installment.

  • Conclusion: Lost Planet 2 is better by leaps and bounds from the original. Still, there is room for improvement, especially in a more cohesive storyline. It's better in a lot of areas, but could be even greater. You'll soon forget the campaign mode as quickly as you can, as you'll spend most of your time online with Lost Planet 2. The online play is the big seller, but the campaign/co-op mode isn't far behind. Bigger, better and more satisfying.

A Monster Of Cooperative Play

Game Informer
7 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Monsters take center stage in a rewarding co-op experience Graphics: Nothing short of stunning. The monsters pop with life, and the visual effects are as frequent as fireworks on the Fourth of July Sound: Few things are more terrifying than a 10-story monster roaring from behind you.

Lost Planet 2 UK Review

IGN
6 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Lost Planet 2 is at its best when you're a giant robot fighting other giant robots – in other words, when it's simple. At its core it's a potentially great action game and it's very good-looking, but it explains itself so incredibly poorly and has such an awkward structure and poor checkpointing that a lot of the fun is ruined by interminable frustration – not to mention the fact that it's basically unplayable as a single-player game.

Lost Planet 2

GameTrailers

  • Excerpt: Lost Planet 2 returns players to an inhospitable planet that humanity is absolutely determined to colonize. In addition to the deadly giant insects native to the area, a civil war over thermal energy--the planet's most precious resource--means there is a lot of fighting to be had. Unlike the traditional progression of Lost Planet, the sequel adopts a more episodic approach that has a lot to offer in terms of volume, but requires human comrades to properly enjoy.
