Excerpt: Sometimes, life can be very stressful indeed. After those hard days at school or work, you just want to switch off and play something simple and satisfying. Sometimes all you need is a room and a million enemies to shoot, a million little bits of revenge taken against your boss, your teachers or your peers. So why not try Robokill – Titan Prime ? Its a spin on the tried and tested Smash TV formula, with human opponents replaced by a variety of cyborg critters.
Excerpt: In the original Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions (LP:EC) , the icy, insectoid-monster ridden planet of EDN III was the home to a brutal conflict between the forces of the colonisation Company NEVEC and the Snow Pirates who lived on the surface. In the midst of the conflict an orphaned boy called Wayne Holden fought bravely to defeat both sides, a shedload of Akrids (giant insects) and begin the process of terraforming the ice-world into a habitable place.
Summary: Lost Planet 2 is a disappointing sequel that is inferior to the original. The controls are poor and confusing, the story is not interesting, and the artificial intelligence is far from intelligent. Outside of the beautiful landscape that you will explore, there’s little to enjoy as you battle the Akrid for T-ENG.
Halo-type game but tamer -- watch out for unmoderated chat.

Summary: Parents need to know that Lost Planet 2 might be considered a tamer Halo , as they're both sci-fi shooters that lets you blast away aliens, but this one is a little less graphic. You must work together with friends to destory these critters and use all kinds of firepower to dispose of them. Parents should also know the game is heavily online-focused and those who chat with a headset might use profanity. Scantily clad female characters may also be a concern.
Excerpt: All Lost Planet 2 had to do was build off of the snowy, akrid-infested mech action that was its predecessor, and perhaps throw in a few “sequel must-haves” like online co-op or bigger bosses. It successfully managed the latter, but somehow the developers seem to have taken a few steps back; instead of the few issues we had with the original game they decided to introduce new ones. Big ones.
Excerpt: I look back on Lost Planet quite fondly. I remember the great boss battles, the stunning visuals and the cool use of mechs. It's funny, though; at the time the fact that it was rock hard (unfairly so at points) had a terrible save system, a crap grappling hook and a cheesy plot were all enough to make me want to tear my hair out.
Conclusion: Overall: This is one hell of a game. The achievement list is for crazy people, or for people who believe they can reach the #1 on a leaderboard. (I challenge all you UK people to beat my time on Advanced training 4-3!) It has great replay value and is very addicting, despite how simple it is when you think about it.
Summary: As a Single Player game, this game is awful - don't play this solo. With friends, however, things are a bit more bright on the planet of EDN III and it doesn't take long to realize that this is very much a Co-Op Only game.
Pros: Graphics, Co-Op experience
Cons: Awful single player campaign, clunky controls, horrible story
