About This Game

The larger than life action of Lost Planet 2, comes to PC! Lost Planet 2 is the sequel to Lost Planet™: Extreme Condition, the landmark third-person shooter which debuted on Xbox 360 and went on to sell over 2.3 million units worldwide after its release. Lost Planet 2 offers deeper insight into the world of E.D.N III and the uncertain fate of future mankind.
Already acclaimed for its visual accomplishments from the console versions, Lost Planet 2 will define the 3D experience on the PC. Stunning environments will immerse the player in NVIDIA Vision Surround technology, and the rebalanced gameplay and streamlined control mechanics make Lost Planet 2 PC the ultimate Lost Planet experience.
A decade has passed since the events of the first game, and the face of E.D.N. III has changed dramatically. Terraforming efforts have been successful and the ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and harsh unforgiving deserts. Mankind has engaged in a civil war to take control of the precious Thermal Energy that powers weapons and vehicles on E.D.N. III and resulted in a separation into various factions.
Players will control heroes from each faction across 6 interconnected episodes, viewing the war from the perspective of each, creating a truly unique interactive experience. With this concept, players will have the opportunity to engage in the story in a much more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from different players’ perspectives.
The intense and action-packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online. Beyond the deep single-player and co-op modes, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes allowing up to 16 players to compete online, each with their own customizable avatar.
No action game would be complete without an arsenal of weaponry, and Lost Planet 2 has a huge variety of hardware for players to unleash on unsuspecting enemies. Machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, lasers, sniper rifles, grenades and a host of other weapons are scattered across the game. The grappling hooks that made the gameplay in Lost Planet a true 3-D experience are back, allowing gamers to gain tactical advantage by moving to elevated locations quickly.
Lost Planet 2’s biggest weapons come on two legs: the heavily armed and armored robotic Vital Suits return in greater numbers and variety than the first game. There are VS that transform into other vehicles, hold up to three players and some that even take multiple players to operate.

Key Features:

  • Co-op action: Team up to battle the giant Akrid in explosive 4 player online co-operative play. Teamwork is the player’s key to victory as the team is dependent on each other to succeed and survive.
  • Massive scale of enemies: Players skill on the battlefield and ability to work as a team will be tested like never before against the giant Akrid. Players will utilize teamwork tactics, new weapons and a variety of vital suits (VS) to fight these larger-than-life bosses.
  • Beautiful massive environments: Capcom’s advanced graphics engine, MT Framework 2.0, and DirectX 11 support will bring the game to life with the next step in 3D fidelity and performance. See Lost Planet 2’s world through new eyes, with support for hardware tessellation and compute shader.
  • Deep level of character customization: Players will have hundreds of different ways to customize their look, nom de guerre, emotes, and weapons to truly help them define their character on the battlefield. A wide array of customizable abilities range from taking less damage, to running faster to operating data posts quicker
  • Rewards System: Players will receive rewards for assisting teammates and contributing to the team’s success
  • Multiplayer: Compete in 16-player multiplayer matches with nine different maps and 5 different game modes including Data Post Battle, Akrid Egg Battle, Fugitive, Elimination and Team Elimination. Additional maps will be available as downloadable content after the game’s release.
  • Exciting new VS features: Based on fan feedback, the team has implemented an unbelievable variety of Vital Suits and new ways to combat VS’s. The new VS system will have a powerful impact on the way the player takes to the war zone in Lost Planet 2.

Still the game I remember playing on 360. As far as I know, co-op campaign still works fine but I can't seem to find any matches in terms of PvP multiplayer. Buy this game knowing this.

Lost Planet 2 - Review

===

Rating

7.0 / 10 - A fun co-op game with issues, but enjoyable still.

===

Pros & Cons


+ Pros +

+ Excellent gameplay concepts
+ Multiple storylines involving different factions
+ Good variety of enemies
+ Good variety of weapons and vehicles
+ Long campaign
+ Many things to unlock between Emotes, Skins, Weapons and Skills


- Cons -


- Bad save system: if a player disconnects, crashes or anything during a ongoing chapter, progress will not save and will have to do all over again.

- RNG (Randomness) determines what weapons or skills you unlock

- Games For Windows Live majorly cripples the game's functioning, requiring extensive manual operations to make the game run, correctly login and host a match.

- For a 2010 game, graphics, animations, detail level, map design, and shaders are borderline ridiculous.

I feel this game is receiving more flak than it deserves stricktly due to GFWL. It is a fun, over the top, monster hunter-esc game that is a lot of fun to play cooperatively. The multiplayer is fun as well. I might not have a lot of hours on PC but I have sunk many hours into the PS3 edition.

Once you get past all the GFWL crap, it works just fine. I enjoyed it just as much as I did years ago on the 360, even when playing solo with bots.

Is it the best game ever? Certainly not. But it’s one of those games that I’ll always remember and think back on fondly. It’s fun, plain and simple.

Take the giant creatures from Monster Hunter, the shooting and punchyness of Gears of War (plus some of the bro love), install some giant mechs from Mech Warrior, add the manic, over the top ridiculousness of Takeshi's, strike a pose and then you got yourself Lost Planet 2.

The real magic of this game is the multiplayer, but alas that was tied to Games fo Windows Live (GWFL). This was a bit of a mistake, GWFL was a horrendous beast. Still.. once you got past that ugly beast of a DRM gate there where greener pastures.

Not one for PVP my view is mostly of single-player and co-op. With the depth and breadth for weapons to choose from, the class and unlocks, missions rankings and awesome boss fights with different approaches, the game has a great deal of replayablility, I personally already played it on console many times over and bought another copy on PC hoping to play with others.

As a side note most negative reviews for this game appear to be about Games for Windows Live. While you can say that this is at the fault of the game developers and is reflective of the game itself I personally feel that that is unfair. GWFL is horrific and the game would be better without it, but once overcome the game is still just as enjoyable. As for the game itself it is well reviewed from what I can see (though I am clearly bias).

There are fixes for problems related to GFWL, I suggest heading to the forums first and checking to see if there are fixes available for you and your system before purchasing, and if they don't work you can always get a refund!

If you don't mind dealing with setting up Games For Windows Live, there is a very enjoyable game here. To get it setup for Windows 10 you just need to download the latest GFWL from http://www.xbox.com/en-US/LIVE/PC/DownloadClient, run it in compatability mode for Windows 7 and complete the installation, setup an account, start the game, download updates for GFWL a few times (requires closing the game), and then you should be good to go.

I am a Lost Planet fan and have been having fun with the game so far. Check out my review below or my other playthrough videos of the game if you want more info before deciding if it is for you.

Although Games For Windows Live is a barrier that one has to cross to enjoy this game, after you have it installed and created an account the game is as good as it was when released, and holds up well in terms of graphical quality. Player population is low but if you can get a group of friends it is good, and there is usally at least one person playing the game. I particularly enjoy the Vital Suits that one can pilot, but without a vehicle the combat is designed well enough so that a player could take down another that is piloting a VS. I used to play this on the PS3, so the lack of splitscreen is a shame, but the game is compatible with xbox controllers and probably playstation ones if you feel a difference between the two. Overall a good and solid shooter, with consistent progression across the campaign and multiplayer modes. Which is good because the rare souls I do find playing multiplayer tend to absolutely destroy me.

After you get through that ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t DRM that Microsoft made it's quite enjoyable , the cutscenes remind me of older Metal Gears and the COOP is working so that's a plus.
