Summary: The timed aspects of this game take some getting used to but I was truly surprised with the story and universe. Lots of originality in this game and glad to see it is on it's way to becoming a trilogy.
Summary: You would think because of the price it was a piece of junk. It's honestly one of the FUNNEST games I have ever played. It takes you a while to get into the actually story mode game because you have to figure out things all on your own, an there's really no help. There's no guiding arrow or anything, but your teammates tell you what to do at certain points! Now, it's Capcom, so you have to remember it's more arcade based. But that's the beauty of it!
Summary: I bought this game because i like the fact that you are in a snowy/icy environment and get to kill bug looking aliens. Its not your run and gun game where you can be rambo and blast your way through levels. There is some exploring, the graphics look good and the environments are well sized. Nobody plays this online but its a cool single player campaign game.
Summary: Liked this game and can't wait for the second one to come out. Only complaint with this game is that i wish the character and mechs moved more fluidly and i didn't feel like the game was moving at a crawling pace..
Summary: The game is great. You get a really epic scale when the monsters are on screen and the grappling hook adds to your mobility. But if you don't like flinching (when your character is sometimes stunned momentarily from shots fired) this is one to avoid. One downside is that the multiplayer is lacking in players currently but it's pretty fun with a friend (Akrid hunter is fantastic). Also the sequel is about a year away. But still, a great game for a low $20.
Summary: Brand new for ten Bucks, I Cant Complain! I got this at the Circuit City close out sale with a big discount. It came out to be cheaper than advertised as the case was mismarked. This is not a groundbreaking game nor is it an awful game. Its your run of the mill action adventure game. Along the lines of Resident Evil, Dino Crsis, and Dead Rising. The only thing i hated about this game was the 2nd analog controller.

Summary: Capcom is well known for creating exciting new genres, or putting new spins on familiar ones. Last generation they gave us Viewtiful Joe, P.N.03 and Killer 7. While Lost Planet may not be as bold as those titles, basing a game entirely on an icy planet where you constantly lose health is quite a risky move, and I admit I admire the premise. The detail they put into the snow effects is breathtaking, and the bugs/alien creatures are something to behold.
Summary: I purchased this as a gift for my husband, whose maturity is well below the number of years he's spent on Earth. He loved it and also loved the new enhancements. My 15 year old nephew also enjoyed coming over and playing this game.
Summary: This game edition was supposed to be a welcome addition into my collection. The new characters, maps, and weapons are all nice. The quarrel I have is that with rifles you can no longer shoot quickly; there is a substantial delay between shots. There is no link between your character level or friends from the original Lost Planet. Your gamer tag from Lost Planet is reset so you start from level 1.
