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.

It's a decent, if "excuse plot" game with cool mechanics and excellent multiplayer. In fact, the entire game is built entirely for multiplayer, with even the main storyline being a connection of multiplayer-ish levels against AI bots interspersed with fighting Akrid and boss fights.

Gameplay is a bit clunky- the over the shoulder view doesn't always have your character aiming towards your reticle, and soemtimes performign actions will skew the camera - throwing a grenade for example will adjust your view- and also tweak where you're throwing your grenade, making proper aim take practice. The grappling hook, while useful as always, is a bit short, I'd say even shorter than the first game, and timing it's aim is quite the pain the ♥♥♥- you get a few seconds of movement before the "claw" hits an object, and god help you if anything hits your or happens to you in that time.

The thing you will curse 90% of the time is that you will be attempting to platform or make some precise jumps or move towards an edge to hookshot to a wall, and if you just ever so slightly fall off the platform, your character will make a "safety catch" where they stop whatever they're doing and hookshot back on the ledge you came from. This overrides all other actions, including hookshotting, regardless of whether or not there's safe ground below you. So say, you want to hop down a hole? Gotta have some distance, and JUMP down that hole, because ifyou try to just run off, you "catch" yourself. This action? It is very, very slow, and time consuming,and the only way out of it is to jump or drop, and the jump is more vertical and useless for clearing gaps, forcing you to hop back to the ledge you fell from, and try again. This makes the time trial training levels a sore pain because you'll find yourself running off a ledge just barely, and forced to waste 5 seconds pulling yourself back up, you'll make a jump and slide off the platform you land on, losing another 5 seconds, you'll hookshot a wall but inadvertently step one foot off the platform while doing so and thus lose another 5 seconds plus the time it takes to properly align yourself. In combat, this means thatyou're also completely helpless for 5 seconds because oops! Fell off a short ledge, better catch myself and let everyone shoot me dead.

Add onto this "stunlock", where being shot makes your character stop all other actions for a second- you cannot fire, you cannot run, dodge or hookshot. This makes any open firefight annoying, as you have a good deal of health but will be John Marston'd to death without even being able to dodge roll out of it. Platforming while enemies are nearby is impossible for this very reason, and the harder time trials are all about enemies with aimbot perfect accuracy pinging you with pistols. Naturally, at a few points in the campaign you'll also be asked to platform or navigate a large battlefield quickly while being shot at, making this quite frustrating. Certain inputs also edge out other ones, meaning timing your inputs in battle is important, or finding ways to do two things at once for maximum efficiency. For example, you can only move slowly while reloading, and cannot jump or run, and for a second after running, you can't jump or reload. However by jumping, then reloading, you'll move fairly quickly and perform a shorter reload animation.

Other than that, the gunplay feels natural, the "floaty" jump and hookshot let you pull off mean headshots from midair, with unparalleled freedom of movement while fighting.

Multiplayer is great, but finding people to play with is a bit hard, as GFWL is still on this game, and thus getting everything working takes possibly a degree in computer science, so you'll not see too many people playing this online. The game's also not interested in things like 'safe spawning' - enemies will spawn on top of you, you'll spawn in the same area as other players, and while you get some mercy invincibility until you fire your gun, expect to spawn, open fire on an enemy, have another enemy spawn immediately behind you and kill you.

Unlocks for weapons, skills, and character customizations are all random- you have a lottery adn all the item boxes you find just go into money for this lottery. Most of the time you'll just get nom de guerres- just names for multiplayer. Which are useless, because even if multplayer's scarce, a name isn't as important as getting a good gun- and in multiplayer your starting eqiupment is based on what you unlock! So expect to be curbstomped in even AI multiplayer battles, as they have a ton of equipment you haven't been rewarded with by random chance!

I recommend watching the lets play by "HiIamDan" and LithuanianDad on the LP Archive, as it gives a good look at the trials and travails of Lost Planet 2.

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!

This game is a mess, but not a total complete disaster of a mess. The story is totally disjointed, the interface feels half-finished, the single-player is just multiplayer with (stupid) AI instead of real 13 year-olds telling you they slept with your mom. That being said, you get to fight gigantic bugs with a variety of weapons, including mechs, and the multiplayer is probably fun, assuming you can find enough 13 years olds that have been intimate with your mother. I'd say its worth about 5 dollareedoos, max.

This is probably one of, if not, my favorite Co-Op game out there. Yeah, there are a few hurdles you have to go through to get this game to work (Thanks, GFWL), but once you do, you're in for one hell of a time.

Lost Planet 2 is the sequel that not only does as well as the first game, but does it BETTER. The only gripe I could say is that the Story is very cheesy, but not to the point where'd you hate it. The main focus here is the gameplay, and it's just great! The story mode, alone, is alright, but not as fun, (Sound familiar, Resident Evil 5?) With at least 1 person or a full lobby of 4, including yourself, you're in for one hell of a time. There's also an option too to turn on Friendly Fire, so if you wanna have some even more fun dicking around, you know what to do. If using the same weapon over and over isn't your cup of tea, then no worries! Lost Planet 2 includes a customization option that is very vast. From the look of your character, to your guns, to abilites (That change how you play a bit), and even Emotes. Ever wanted to pose like the Ginyu Force with your friends with everyone wearing a Servbot Mask? You can do that! Have you wanted to mow down giant creatures and mechs alike with a shotgun that shoots confetti and a grenade with an explosion so big that it gives Micheal Bay a raging erection? You can do that! Do you want to take one mech and find another only to find out that you can transform it, Power Rangers Style, and make it one of the most badass machines to pilot? You can do that!

Lost Planet 2 is one of those games that stuck out to me in a good way, and for good reasons. If you are going to get this game, get this with a friend. Unfortunately, the servers have absolutely NO ONE playing, so good luck trying to find a party of people playing the game. Other than that, this is one game that I whole heartedly recommend.

It's a great co-op shooter! Bring friends - the AI are useless ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, though not as much as Sheva Alomar is. At least you don't lose if they die.

Story time! NEVEC, the Big Bad Evil Corp, made the frozen planet warm, and everyone loves them for it. This game documents the few days it's still warm before, of course, they make it cold again. You play as several kinds of people who live on the planet - mercenaries, corp soldiers, pirates, that kind of thing. Of course, it's a shooter, so you'll be shooting aliens and other people.

The gameplay's really entertaining. Fun guns, cool mechs, giant aliens, and plenty of explosions - how can I say no?

This game would be 100% awesome if it weren't for the Games for Windows Live piece. I have spent many hours playing this game, but when I came back to it and didn't remember my GFWL credentials (and had no way to recover them because the email I used was hosted by a place that no longer exists) I am up a creek. No way to recover my GFWL account to activate to the (now dead) GFWL service, no way to transfer my license to my other Microsoft account and no response at all from Capcom Support.

"Nothing really interesting is that this time can be flooded. This is a good thing, and see."
If you play a musical instrument or three or Lost Planet 2 and possibly "be a lot of water in the right places" and "super happy" is not going to be the same. But it is difficult when it is too late, on Tethys is very good for all ages here. First snow melting snow in the recording time, and now there are deserts and wild dreams, and even holes. But not necessarily looga but you have a different group of soldiers Capcom's seven chapters, you can find a new section of its parts. The shape and depth of the life and movement of the Battle of world domination to a higher level. at least
Some IT ♥♥♥ kicked
I train very wild, arms, life, group, no worries, yes, but not oil. Construction area of ​​the size of the monster, and to remember a lot of the food is not good. I'm in training
This means that we will apply to all trains and helicopters in the animal's neck - grenade launchers, rifles and empty bottles - you want to stop the snake. But it is easy to eat a car with rage. We are not dog Terra teenage horror excited cries of joy pain.

Lost Planet 2 has a hard and fast all the various side normal and safe. The concept is basically one thing, Capcom company has a lot of the same game for the first time to do. Releasing a CD key component of the collaboration between the two. It's complicated, especially hair spray a serious, complex characters. (A type weapon), continues to move along the road, you can jump in one of dozens of key forward. The players have been wearing a suit two is especially important in the winter, my colleagues are very bad for the ride. So you can put human life epic air interface.

With global warming, you need fuel (more than) enough, sudden death, do not worry. But we have some kind of impact. Some biological weapons and a bunch of empty oil drums and other intelligence to bear fruit juice stand.
West, beefy flavor Epic Games company.
This is the first in many ways to pay for roads ideological manipulation, Capcom is filled with a certain depth of the industry. Lurking in the desert attitude forget a hut. Main battle is still to take a bus to continue the fight. The study was carried out good.
No. 304 120
The boss fights are based on simple and effective. Now we have a lot of riders, know next to Lost Planet.
But all that glitters is not gold. The only thing that bothers me the first game, you will not be able to use it from hand to jump xkottet, I believe this is part of a large patent restrictions Capcom screen.
However - do not play split screen! Although there can be only one of two players each have four separate images and other maps Papfammar talk about the series. How, in the Lost Planet game is different: the environment, which is a bit disappointing $ by more surprises bored to death. (Does not control, like killing animals, thank you very much effect), but here, "call" Thank the Lord runway. The two of you run, hide any type of organization and the rest of the draw has been devoted to the poor western wild marsupials.
It has assumed most of the CD, you rojet of Lost Planet 2 after the Second World War Basta questions ready, this is not a difficult process.
