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 game, controls can be a little awkward but there's nothing else like it out there.

You play a series of weird and wonderful characters across multiple tribes on a frozen planet that is slowly thawing.
The game has a great arcade feel with unlocks for your characters and weapons. You can unlock better weapons from serious upgrades to a shotgun that fires confetti.

You take on giant creatures and murder them for their thermal energy. Fighting with your guns, mechs and well timed grappling hooks.

I've played through the game multiple times and loved every minute.

Oh well. Bought this on sale for basically nothing.

------Requires games for windows live---------
------Don't know why, it just does-------

There's guides for dealing with GFWL but it's just as bad as Uplay or origin. It's annoying and has no reason to be there.

-Controls are not so great for a keyboard, unless you have a controller you're gonna have a bad time

-At the very first boss fight the game wouldn't let me grapplehook into areas I should've been able to grapple hook into

-90% of the enemies die in one or two hits

-Guns feel worthless against first boss

-aim assist because aiming is hard

-Can't customize your campaign character without first beating the campaign

+game looks ok
+Cool monsters and ♥♥♥♥
+co-op
+bought it on sale

If you really want to play this game, go for it. Otherwise there's probably some better options out there.


TLDR
I've never played a lost planet before. Game requires GFWL. Graphics are ok. I didn't like it.

DO NOT buy this game if you are running Windows 10 or 8.1!
UPDATED: There is a possible fix to get around this!
This is meant to be a possible fix for existing owners. I heavily advise people not to buy this game in its current state.

Lost Planet 2 was a guilty pleasure of mine on consoles, holding over 100+ hours of my personal time. I would easily give this game a thumbs up. However, as you can see, this is not the case sadly... In short, Lost Planet 2 is a wonderful game plagued by terrible DRM. This issue affects many but not all of Windows 10 users. If you have Windows 10, do not waste your money until these technical issues are fixed. Also, be weary if you have Windows 8.1, since this issue plagues some users that have this OS as well.

As of the time of this review, under normal circumstances, it is impossible to play this game for many due to Games For Windows Live (GFWL) on Windows 10 and 8.1. GFWL has immense compatibility issues on Windows 10 currently. Starting the game up in Direct x9 or x11 results in an instant crash. Starting up the game in compatibility mode does not work. Installing the GFWL client is also a dead end. The programs freezes up when attempting to log in. It is also worth mentioning that several other GFWL titles have similar issues.

Unfortunately, these issues have completely rendered the game unplayable. I do hope that GFWL is removed from this game, or at the very least some fix is made available. I will be contacting Microsoft support regarding this. I suggest that others do so as well, for the sake of this game and others. Until this issue is resolved, I highly recommend looking elsewhere.

A possible fix for both Windows 8.1 and 10!

After doing some research and spending some time messing around with various theories, I have been able to find a possib;e temporary fix!

Despite this fix, I strongly advise people not to buy this game in its current state. Please due note that this fix may not work for everyone, so caution is still heavily advised for people who plan to buy this. If you do buy this title, I advise not going over the 2 week/1 hours of gameplay limit for returning games! This is so that you can return the game if it still fails to properly play. Also, this issue affects many but not all Windows 10 users, as well as Windows 8.1 users.

For Windows 10 users
For Windows 8.1 users, skip below these steps to "For WIndows 8.1 users" for a possibly simpler, faster fix.

1. Go to Programs and Features and see if you have "Microsoft Games For Windows Marketplace" and/or "Microsoft Games For Windows - LIVE Redistributable" installed.
2. If you do, uninstall them and restart your computer. If you don't have them installed, simply proceed to the next step.
3. Go to the official Microsoft website and download (but DO NOT install) the latest version of Games For Windows Live. The download link is found here: http://www.xbox.com/en-IE/Live/PC/DownloadClient
4. Right click on the GFWL install file and go to Properties. From there, turn compatibility mode on to Windows 7, and check off so that it will always run on administration mode.
5. Activate the GFWL install file and complete the installation. However, do not boot up GFWL after it is installed.
6. Boot up Lost Planet 2. Picking Directx 9 or 11 does not matter. At this point, instead of the game crashing instantly, it should actually start to boot up now, bringing you to the main menu.
7. After setting your resolution, press "Start Game" to prompt a login to your Microsoft account. Enter your information and sign in. It will take several minutes of loading before anything happens. You should see a spinning circle as it loads.
8. After it loads, enter your unique key for Lost Planet 2.
9. From here, it will state that GFWL needs to update. Confirm the update and close the game a few seconds later. Make sure to confirm any installs that pop up. You may need to do this 2-3 times or so before everything is properly installed.
10. Once everything is successfully installed, you should be able to finally log in and be prompted to create a new save file.

For WIndows 8.1 Users

For Windows 8.1 users, complete step 1 and 2. Then skip the rest and complete the following: See if you can install GFWL normally (without backwards compatibility mode). Attempt to boot up GFWL (the program itself) and sign in directly there. Whether you are able to sign in or not, try booting up Lost Planet 2. If the game will still not play, then go back to step one (make sure to uninstall GFWL) and instead attempt the Windows 10 method.

Final Thoughts

I cannot recommend this game enough on console. However, for PC, I honestly cannot recommend this title in its current state. My rating for the game will not change for now, since it is ridiculous that all of this strain and effort must be put out simply to get this game working. I hope that this is able to help some people out there that are having issues with this game as well.

Also, as a side note, you can skip signing in once you have GFWL installed by simply clicking on the red "X" in the corner of the GFWL login overlay. However, if you do, you will be unable to save your game or access online play.

This game does still use GFWL. Don't believe anyone that says the service has been shut down. It still works and you CAN still play online. There is a guide in the game's hub to help you get the game up and running

Fantastic action shooter with a mix of on-foot and mech combat where you fight a mix of humans, mechs, and akrid. A large variety of weapons to choose from. The loadout system takes a new spin on the old pickup based gameplay that allows you to choose what specific weapon you want out of any given weapon types. Co-op campaign is the main draw for a lot of people here. Fight with three friends to take down massive bosses across a several environments, including space. There is a lack of story but it more than makes up for it with fantastic gunplay and movement system. There is also a huge amount of customization options, including emotes all without the fear of paying microtransactions like a lot of modern titles do. PVP multiplayer is intense with games supporting up to 16 players. Maps range from large to small. Match hosts are given a decent degree of freedom to customize their games.

Absolutely love the game. Just the right amount of action, comedy and crazyness. 12/10 would play again. Unfortunately I haven't been able to play this game lately because of it's dependancy on Games for Windows life. And since that went down, All my character customizations are gone, haven't been able to start it. So if you decide to play it (And you should!) You probaply need to do some research before you buy it wheather you can even play it anymore. It's really a shame capcom, fix your s***.

Literally bought this the day before it went on sale. I can't even express what I am feeling right now. But this game is just as good as I remember it years ago. NOTE: IF USING WINDOWS 10 THE GAME MUST BE RUN WITH WINDOWS VISTA COMPATIBILITY MODE. Once I figured that out it was smooth sailing. Good ol' 1080p 60fps fast pased monster slaying action.

dont know why people complain so much. GFWL wont take too much of your time setting up. if you get the game join the lost planet group at

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/lp2ost.


bunch of friendlies looking to play on Lost planet 2/lost planet colony maybe Lost planet 3 also, but im not sure... they also do events on fridays and such. feel free to add me if u r a player looking to play the game. but back to the game. im very new to the whole lost planet franchise, the co-op campaign is beast and alotta fun esp with others. dont understand why it isnt in lost planet 3. switching between keyboard + mouse and a controller is flawless. the gfx is nice and EZ on the eyes. havent seen much people on the pvp part but there are still a few folks looking to do co-op campaign here and there. definitely recommend the game. its been years and its still alive. its great overall

In this game you can shoot people off a moving war ship with a shotgun loaded with confetti, then taunt at them with Chun-Li's victory pose. While playing as Albert Wesker.

If you ask me, the only thing keeping this from being the game of the century is the fact that it has GFWL.

I have put many hours into this game on console. As far as a PC port, its pretty great.

Many people cannot get this game to run due to games for windows live being difficult. HOWEVER, there are solutions to this.

Online co-op is also entirely possible, which is where this game really shines. Single player can be fun, but the multiplayer is where this game excels. I highly recommend this game. It is a true gem, but be ready for a frustrating time getting it to work. There are many forum posts and other reviews that can do a much better job at explaining the process then I can.
