Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies
18 January 2009
Conclusion: However, whether all this new content amounts to value for money is another question. There's not really enough here to encourage existing owners to repurchase, despite the Ł24.99 price tag. It's not currently known whether the new content will be available as DLC, but this would seem like a sensible option for Capcom. Yet, for those who are yet to experience Lost Planet, Colonies Edition is the definitive version of the 360's first truly next-gen retro shooter.
Conclusion: What might have been an unremarkable budget re-release arrives with a host of new features, but Lost Planet: Colonies Edition is, in some regards, a fool's labour. New single-player modes join online maps, weapons and avatars in a considerable reworking of Capcom's third-person shooter. Yet in a rush for reinvention, decisions have been made that exclude its existing fan base.
