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.

This game is absolutely great as a coop multiplayer. The movement is fluid, the weapons pack a punch and the replay value is very high. Due to the coop focus of the game, the story can be difficult to follow and the map transitions/ playing as different factions don't initially make a lot of sense.
Fighting akrid aliens is the absolute highlight of this game. The bosses are gigantic and take a good beating. The variety of boss akrid is great too, from a lumbering giant salamander to fast giant lizards.

The only letdowns in this game are the somewhat minigame feel of a few of the levels, lack of space to really play around in the vehicles properly, and having a more open style map level or freeroam would have been welcome.

The customization options are plentiful, for weapons, outfits and even emotes. The destruction is abound in this game.
Overall, this game is brilliant for jumping into a coop session with friends or randoms, with each mission lasting not more than 20mins usually. It's great to pick up and play, shoot the heck out of everything, and then go unlock some more gear. There is a multiplayer deathmatch mode that I was not interested in, but it seems quite good if you like vs mode.

The only thing negative that I can say about this game (other than, you know, using GFWL on Steam, for great redundancy, and not even offer cross-platform multiplayer) is that I didn't get to play it in 2010, the launch date. Because DAMN did I lost the fun!

A third-person shooter with Keiji Inafune's seal. This should speak volumes, I mean, what kind of game you'd expect from the father of Megaman? Unfortunately, that didn't panned out for the antecessor, the first Lost Planet. But LP2 redeemed it big time, at least in my opinion.

The problem with LP1? Bad narrative, choppy storytelling. In a game built mostly around the singleplayer, that's a serious issue. Graphics were good though, and the playability was solid. Still didn't helped, however, to add this title to my list of games to finish-and-forget .

But here's the funny part: those two complaints weren't solved in LP2. Instead, the series retooled its flaws into a workable and actually enjoyable storyline. And how do you do that with choppy sequences, lack of details and a great potential of development not being throughly harvested? Multiple protagonists, and multiple storylines seemingly disconnected one from another, until a certain part, that's how. And it worked marvelously.

But even so I doubt you'd think of this as the greatest point of this game. You'll feel like you're playing the surrogate child of Battlefied - career levels, loadouts, and five profiles denoting each PC - with Borderlands - alien planet where everything in it is big, mean, carnivorous, tough-hided and spiky, with a corrupt megacorp trying its best to hog the motherload and trample everyone in the way... Heck there's even a group of stupid wasteland bandits with scrapyard-level gear! XD

Just play it. It's a great co-op TPS, even if dated and with Lost Planet 3 around for almost a year. The fact that there's online players rolling since four years and counting should hint you about its quality.

I've beaten this game on the X360, the PS3, and on the PC. I've gotten everything from the in-game slot machine. And it is glorious. This game is a solid arcade-style shooter like Binary Domain or Vanquish and gives you a veritable arsenal of weapons to fight off a large variety of enemies. The dialogue is somewhat cheesy, but it fits the tone of the game since it doesn't try to be a "war is hell" shooter ot take itself too seriously. C'mon, you can even set a variety of emotes like waving, dancing, or even crotch thrusts! Most everything the enemies do or characters in the cutscenes can do, you can do.

Want to grapple on to a giant arthropod and shoot its glowing spot for massive damage? You can do that.
Want to use a VS [basically mechs] that you saw a boss use? You can use it at some point in the story.
Want to shoot a giant spider in the face with a laser? You can do that too.
Want to fuse two VSes together to make a super-VS to kill everyone around you? You can do that.
Want to use VS weapons while on foot to blow someone across the room? You guessed it, you can do that!

The game gives you a set of default weapons, and you unlock more through an in-game slot machine using in-game currency. If you don't want to do that, then you can unlock a number of weapons, character parts, and items through levelling up your character in Campaign. You have a variety of game mechanics at your disposal to fight your enemies. You've got a grappling anchor you can use to latch on to enemies and you aren't only able to use it in a single stage, but rather it's available throughout the game in every stage. You can shoot grenades to blow them up in a larger explosion, or just use another type of grenade like the Gum [sticky] grenade to fight your foes off.

Most of your foes are large insects and invertebrates called Akrid. They also happen to have giant glowing points along their bodies, such as their limbs and abdomens. The first large Akrid you meet in the campaign has weak spots on its arms that you can use to blow them off. The Akrid will regenerate their limbs over time, but I reccomend just blowing them off again! On other occasions, you get to shoot people in the face.

The human enemies have access to most of the same primary weapons as you do, like the Energy Gun and the variants of the machine gun. They'll also occasionally use VS weapons, in which case they will probably become one of your primary targets.

While you can't pick up a dead enemy's weapon, there are a variety of weapons scattered throughout the level. All of these weapons match what you've selected in your character customisation, which helps when you want a particular style of weapon. If you happen to play the co-op, then the items appear as whatever items the host has set in customisation. The game keeps up a constant flow of action by continuously throwing pre-placed enemies that will run around the area in a futile attempt to survive. While their durability varies based upon which of the three pre-unlocked difficulty settings, so do the weapon and armor placements. For example, I played the first few stages on Normal and found the usual VSes and weapons, but playing it on Normal scattered a number of suits of power armor that you could use around the early levels.

All of this helps to show the level of work put into making this game enjoyable, and in my opinion, they succeeded at making a good, engaging game. I'd wholeheartedly reccomend it to anyone looking for a good shooter that you can jump in and out of if you're busy or play in co-op with someone else.

OK.... Guns. Monsters. Big explosions. Great graphics. What's not to love? Oh, the lack of players. People just don't see it. This game's story is all about how everyone came together to.... Woops, giving it away there. Look, a game where you're being challenged by monsters and humans alike... What's not to love? Change your arsenal. Change your character. Man, go blow some stuff up! Go have fun! That's what Lost Planet is about!!

It's rare to find a 3rd person shooter, especially one on PC that has co-op.

The online populuation of this game is completely dead, unfortunately. So if you want to play it online (Which I recommend!), then get some friends to buy it with you.

It has a very "Arcade game" kind of feel to it, going from level to level.

It's very grindy if you want to unlock all the things, and considering PVP multiplayer is dead, you have to replay the campaign missions.
It's very challenging though, when you play on the highest difficulty.

The reviews have been rather harsh when it comes to this game, if your looking for good, solid 4 player fun in a gaming world which doesn't take itself seriously this is the place to be! a 3rd person shooter you take the role of a multitude of survivors facing off against enormous alien creatures and a sinister human organisation, think aliens mixed with godzilla! the story is negligable but the game more than makes up for itself with a wide array of weaponry unlockable as the game progresses along with a multitude of player titles, emotes, perks and player parts all available from a slot machine, you gotta spin to win! expect to see gargantuan alien creatures, giant pilotable mecha and some powerful guns, 4 player co-op mode and 16 player competitive multiplayer allows for massive replayability and is well worth the low asking price for entry.
