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!

Pros: Graphics, Co-Op experience
Cons: Awful single player campaign, clunky controls, horrible story

Excerpt: In no way is Lost Planet 2 a bad game, and I say that because I might initially make the game sound like it was utterly terrible. Well, it’s not, but it’s certainly plagued by some frustratingly large problems. First off the list is the inability to save.
