I've come to the conclusion that this version of LP should actually be called the "extreme pain in the butt condition edition" AKA "colonies". I'll elaborate on that:

It crashes constantly for no apparent reason, uses GFWL and caused my PC to BSOD several times in the process of trying to get it to work. On top of that, it successfully ruined a good portion of my weekend.

The game itself is actually quite decent so do yourself a fovor and grab the extreme condition edition that does not include GFWL painful buttsex and avoid colonies like the plague.

0/10: the perfect gift for your worst enemy. Otherwise, should not be on sale.

Edit: I digress...tried the DX9 launcher and it worked fine. I won't change the score due to the hassle I had to endure while trying to get DX10 to work.

This game is really cold, physically and emotionally. It shows no mercy on later difficulties. Still a good buy. Still fun as hell even without active multiplayer.

Worth the price... And that's being generous from me. The graphics are great, and the game is challenging even on Normal difficulties. But what killed the mood for me was the single-player story itself. Choppy as hell, you get cut out of a lot of details that =could= be well exploited for a better narrative, buuuut...

To be perfectly honest, from a game with Keiji Inafune's seal, I expected much more.

With that said, you should play it anyways, if anything, as a tutorial for Lost Planet 2, the story-free sequel. Now THAT redeems what this game didn't scored :D

Just one of those games that doesn't supply a great experience. Not missing a thing by passing it up. Not a terrible game just not worth your time.

The best snow effects I have ever seen but thats all

Story was not very good (and i am being nice)

3/10 not worth it

Reposting my Original Lost Planet: Extreme Condition reviews and adding a few additional notes:
"Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a port of the ever so popular Xbox version. Developed and published by Capcom you begin the game int he Year T.C. -80 on the planet E.D.N. III after Earth's conditions become too critical thanks to Global wamring, Pollution and war. Neo-Venus (NEVEC) plans to colonize E.D.N. III to a new Earth-like planet in grip of an ice age but they descovered that the are aggressive territorial insectoids named Akrid inhabit this planet. You play as Wayne Holden, a Soldier who gets Amnesia pretty early in game. Gameplay wise the ground and Vital Suits (VSs) combat feels fluid, quick, and oh so satisfying. You play over the sholder view or you can switch to first person any time. You can carry 2 weapons of anykind except VS weapons which you can still use but you have to drop em. You have a grappling hook to climb or hijack VSs. The main gimmick to the game is Thermal Energy, keep the number high and you can live longer. Overall the Game plays great, looks great, and controls a bit sloppy. Overall a great game if you don't mind learning how to use KB+M. Get the Colonies edition though since it has more features and modes with the same Story. This one also has Dead Multiplayer."
Colonies Edition includes new Multiplayer maps (Dead), Human vs Akrid Multiplayer mode (Dead) and new Multiplayer characters and weapons (Dead).
The only real reason why Colonies Edition is better than The originanl is the four new Single Player modes which include a Score Attack, Time Trial Battle mode, First Person Shooter mode, and an unlockable unlimited mode. Good for a playthrough or two and thats about it for this game.

This is just a bad port of an OK game. Try to play it with an Xbox Controller to make it a bit easier, but otherwise avoid it.

Oh and anyone who says the final boss is easy is lieing.

It took a while, but I beat the final boss, what a mangy coont. The game is actually rather difficult even on normal. When you're under fire from rockets and lasers, and they just keep coming, don't expect to heroically get up and fight the good fight. Expect to die.

That's basically what the boss fights are like, or casual fights where there are multiple men in VS suits and people with rockets in your way. It's a real pain the the buttocks. I will say that the combat, while some of it has merit, the VS fighting at least; the on foot third person gun fighting can be annoying as you're basically running and gunning while trying not to get shot from the hundreds of enemies, human and alien, or akrid as they're called in this game. Basically, the combat is not the best aspect. I mean, the VS fighting is cool, you know, when you're not dying.

The game's greatest asset are the graphics and, for the most part, the story. While most reviews criticize the story for being generic, because it is (sci-fi shooter set on another planet where evil corporation plans to eradicate all life in order to colonize it), the real story lies in the mystery of who the snow pirates are and what their purpose is. They're unkowingly defending the planet from complete eradication while also causing the genocide of the akrid. The game also has a sense of trust and friendship that probably wasn't mentioned in professional reviews. These character build a sense of trust to Wayne, the protagonist that is mysteriously unearthed and found frozen after the opening mission. You find out your father died and there's this whole conspiracy. It gets interesting while playing it cool and easy. The plot doesn't really get too complex nor does it make you think. You just run and gun and watch the cut scenes in between.

The main characters are interesting but also very obviously written by Capcom because of the funny dialog by some side characters that probably wasn't meant to be funny (I'm looking at you Rick and Luka.) And the game also has the Japanese art with the characters except for Joe for some reason who looks like he was modeled by a dude from Burbank. I mean, the character designs weren't that bad, they just could have made them look more human and Luka probably could have used a different voice actress. Whoever voiced her probably usually works on animes as it was that usual soft female voice you hear in animes. I mean, she's supposed to be a bloody snow pirate, not some....I don't know, whatever.

The environments are fantastic though. Great design and effects with the snow. The final gets kind of weird though. Suddenly you're thousands of feet in the air fighting some ♥♥♥♥♥♥. God, I hated Isenberg.

The rest of the reviews I'm seeing on Steam are mostly negative because of complaints of crashing to desktop and GFWL. Look, the multiplayers dead and I don't think anyone reading this was even going to bother with the multiplayer. GFWL will work fine if you have an account already made, shouldn't be a big deal just to log in and play the singleplayer. I have experience zero crashes to desktop. But that's just me.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition is still a Great Game to play. The Sound's are Nice, Music is Great and The Shotting & Fighting is Good. Like most Game's tho, they have like 2 or 3 Cheap Bosses and it take's away from the Fun of the game like most of Capcom game's have is those Cheap Bosses. XD They also needed to work on the lip sinking it was a bit bad but the story was very nice to over look the bad lip sinking. Now down to business 7 out of 10

Quite a low quality third person shooter. I would not recommend it unless you want the whole story of the three lost planet games

I would not blame anyone for wanting a refund on this.

The game itself is not horrible, it's THIS edition of it that's horrible.

If you really want to play it on PC, get Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, sans "Colonies Edition".

Good for a playthrough.
Its replay value is a bit limited being its mainly replaying the main game in various different ways.
Expect the multiplayer to be abandoned.

This game was pretty good, sadly no one plays the multiplayer anymore but it was nice to finally finish the campaign. It had a storyline like an anime woud have too.

If your looking for a quick fix this is a great game to play. The visuals are astounding the music as well. The gameplay is easy to grab quick enough, altough the gameplay either has you feeling invencible in one mission (You know your not going to die anytime soon) and completely helpless in another.

Aside from the fact that boss matches leave you knocked down for 4 seconds as you despretley wait for you charcter to get up, it is a good play through. The story is intresting enough, as well to keep you playing through.

No real improvement over regular Lost Planet except for additional MP modes (all dead).

Also this version has GFWL and it won't be patched out. Could also be why this version seems to crash more than the original.

Stay AWAY!

Getting the absolute negative out of the way. The boss fights are complete ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, especially as difficulty increases. The game even resorts to cheap ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ like having the time between boss defeat and mission end increasing on higher difficulty levels in an effort to ♥♥♥♥ you over by running you out of T-ENG. This is an obnoxious design choice. Not only that, but the vertical pitch is limited to about 75°. Bosses that fly love to hover on top of you and your character doesn't go transparent to allow accurate shooting.

Annoying as this ♥♥♥♥ing is, the game is still damn good. Visually astounding, but not cutting edge. It's just a clean and well polished world that looks and plays great. The gameplay is frantic and fun and the story is reminiscent of '80s anime. This is a game that loves to be a game and I ♥♥♥♥ing adore it because of all this. The ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ boss fighting and limited aim are about the only real downsides, though I anticipate for some it'll get repetitive. Highly recommended despite it's frustration factor. The only way it could've been better is if it had co-op. Well worth the $15 for the standard and $20 for the Colonies edition.
