Lost Planet 2 (Xbox 360, PS3) Review

28 July 2010
  • 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.

Common Sense Media
26 July 2010
  • 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.

Lost Planet 2 Review

6 July 2010
  • 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.

Lost Planet 2

25 June 2010
  • 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.

True achievements
20 June 2010
  • 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.

Lost Planet 2 Review

Xbox Evolved
19 June 2010
  • 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

Multi is the New Single

15 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Earning customization items is soul-crushingly slow and hatefully random.
  • Pros: Jumping into a transforming Vital Suit and unleashing hell on enemy troops.
  • Cons: The poor setup for mission 3-3 turns a great battle into a frustrating slog.

Lost Planet 2

8 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Essentially, every modern-day game can muster its own community of loyal supporters and players, providing the core gameplay is exciting enough. As it stands, Lost Planet 2 doesn't hold any features worth mentioning and brings little to no innovation over the original. After all I've seen and heard in Lost Planet 2, I can safely conclude this game is as much of a failure as Capcom's Bionic Commando .
  • Pros: There are some cool and epic boss battles, in addition to entertaining multiplayer matches;
  • Cons: Too many bugs and weird design choices (most of which are dead wrong) ruin the experience, single-player and the story are rubbish.
