"Worth it for the meaty Co-op campaign. It's an absurd blast, just like the batshit bosses, weapons and story. Seriously just watch the trailer.(GFWL)"

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.

+Great visuals
+Great Audio (Weapons sound great!)
+Cutscenes feature great cinematography
-Certain sounds seem to be too slow for the cutscene/delayed (May be a personal computer issue, not very noticeable and isn't present in gameplay)

I remember back in 2007 when a game called Lost Planet came out for the Xbox 360. I was immediately impressed by the Vital Suits (big robots you jump into and steer) and the Akrids (giant bugs) you fight using your VS. Unfortunately however, the original Lost Planet was a rather dull game despite these things. So when I heard it was getting a sequel, I didn't really pay it any attention for the longest time. What a mistake that was.

Lost Planet 2 takes the strengths of the original game and develops them even further. It gets rid of weaknesses like actually taking itself seriously and the uninspired levels. I'll get this out of the way already now though, Lost Planet 2 is not a game meant to be played in singleplayer. It of course can be, but it would be the equivalent of playing a Borderlands game solo. Where the game truly shines is in the co-op campaign, which is possibly one of the best experiences I've ever had in a video game.

The game is a third person shooter, a very Japanese one at that, with some rather heavy weight to it's control scheme. The controls are very tight, even though the default control scheme on PC is, to put it lightly, very lacking. In the campaign, you and up to three of your friends are given the very simple task of shooting the ♥♥♥♥ out of all the Akrids that have come to mess up your planet. Simple as that. At your disposal you have a wide variety of weapons, various Vital Suits and a grappling hook. The Vital Suits of Lost Planet 2 have been, to put it simply, taken to the next level. Some suits require several players to properly operate, some can transform, there's one for every need basically. As you play through the game you'll be able to unlock ridiculous amounts of weapons, titles, emotes and costumes, as well.

The game has very good replayability with several levels featuring secret routes and the silly things the game encourages and rewards you for doing, like entering the stomach of one of the bosses among other things. It features four different difficulty settings, ranging from easy to extreme, so you won't have to worry about difficulty being too easy or too hard. There's a full training mode which works fairly well too, if needed. If you and your friends die too many times and start arguing, there's a PVP multiplayer as well with plenty of game modes to mess around in.

But to get back more to the meat of the matter, as I mentioned earlier what really sets the game apart is the cooperative campaign. You won't get an experience like this anywhere else. In a time when cooperative campaigns have been more and more getting discarded, it's a wonderful thing to see a game like this. Just how many other games let you have several players controlling the same robot together and using it to mow down giant alien bugs? I know I can't think of anything at least. I really can't possibly emphasize enough just how much simple stupid fun this game is. I know I've tried with this review, but the only way to truly convey what a joy this game is, is by getting people to play it.

I used to play this game competitively on the PS3 and stopped playing in 2012 with around 1000 hours of playtime. The single player is ok and fun, but the Multiplayer and Co-op is where this game really shines. If the servers were still active then I'd play this game everyday, although I'm told that there is a online gaming community that hosts its own servers every friday to keep the game alive. I have just joined the community that I was referencing and the community is there every Friday.
