"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.

Lost Planet 2 was a ridiculously cool game. It was over-the-top, filled to the brim with action and the amount of guns, emotes and vehicles you get to play with is just incredible. The story is not too great, for it is not the main focus of the game.

It has everything. Co-op campaign. PvP. You can play solo if you'd like. There is also public matchmaking if you don't have anyone to play with. However, the game's population has dwindled since long ago. Capcom seem to be hesitant to put a sale on the game. Sales usually help promote a game's population.

I whole-heartedly recommend this game. But I also recommend that you play with a friend. Or two. Or three.

Lost Planet 2 has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. Recently I picked it up again, on PC this time though. I remember whn I first played it, I thought it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Coming back to it now a few years later, I see some of its flaws, but does that mean that ths game is terrible? No, not in the slightest. But I will leave that choice to you, the reader.

This is just giving personal experince from what I have seen in my time of getting it again:

At first glance the game seems quite solid. Good textures, good voice acting (Most of the time) but one thing the game at times struggles to hold up is combat. This is very bad considering this is a combat based game. Is the worst I have ever seen? Not at all, but it definetly needed to be checked again. At points in the game I would try to shoot at an NPC and instead of where I was aiming it would aim to the bottom left corner of where I was aiming nowhere near where they were. Also at points (I'm not sure if other people have seen this or not.) the weapons would be showing that they are firing due the clip number going down, but nothing actually was being fired. Another thing is with at least one of the bosses from my own experince has a broken atack from what I've seen. This boss is called Akrid X. The attack I am refering to s a charging attack you have to escape otherwise it will do massive to you. Most times though, with the map design trying to indicate to go into these little crevaces in the ground, you can't escape it. I may be wrong here and it instead has an incredibly large splash radius for the attack, i'm not sure. There are other things to talk about, but i'll wrap it up with the character models. The problem with them was that not all blended together. I don't mean by the different colors, but the fact that there are jagged textures of other pieces of armor sticking out if you decided to have different pieces of armor on. Another problem on that same thing was the face models. These are smalls details. but they are important details. To some they might not notice, but to others, it miht ruin they enitre sense of immersion. I felt at some times they characters were beingmade to move just to move. Their arms would move around very oddly, making it difficult to understand there emotions sometimes. They only way for them to be understood at some points was due to the voice actors. On the face models that weren't covered, it was quite terrible. It didn't matter about if their voice needed to fit the character in this case, but they should have at least be able to move there mouths. In my opinion, that's quite lazy. Those same models also needed a texture touch up as well due their faces looked slightly meshed.


Though its shown this game has its flaws, it also has it positives. One such one is co-op. When you are able to get a whole group of your friends together for a big game, it can be one hell of a ball. This is definetly one of the game bi things is teamwork. Granted, you can play game by yourself, but most times its either much lengthier or much harder. If you like working as a team and have friends to play with or you just want to play with anyone really, this is a game for you. Though I complained about the characters, I was mostly referring to the different model problems and meshing of "unfinished faces" as I should say. Here though it's about the designs of the models themselves (without combining different ones). Their ow designs I thought were amazing. Some were slightly off from one another to give a sense of being in an army and showing that they come from the same group, while others were just in their own in creativity. The different personality of the different characters overall managed to keep on the positive side due to a few iconic characters. Many of the characters were good, but they felt like they were practically everywhere, making them seem bland in that sense. There were a select few though that made me love them. The Waysiders were a beautiful group to me as well as the Vagabundos and the NEVEC Clones, at times anyway. Each of them had their own flare that made them stick out as their unit saying, "Hey! Here I am, as I am!" Finally the best part of this game to me, is the music. In some of the tracks they are short nd loop, but regardless they are beautiful. It's due to the soundtrack that I even came back to the game for the most part. I must say Jamie Christopherson did a fantastic job here and I will even later on.

Final Verdict (Reviewers Verdict):

7.5/ 10

Though I may have gone into detail about the different problems the Lost Planet 2 has it is still a very nice game. I it the best? No. Is it fun? Yes, indeed. If you know someone that owns it or if you want to buy it your self, it doesn't matter, you need to at least try it. This kind of game isn't for everyone, but you may be one of the people that does like it.

So though you have it. Take it however you please, but remember, this is the review of someone else, not you. You are the ultimate decider, so make your choice. Hopefully I'll see some of you on the planet of E.D.N. III

Played Lost Planet 2 a ridiculous amount on 360 and now PC and for me one of the best fun co-operative experiences ever. Even more fun if you have friends you can chat to and know some of the ins and outs of the game like the Support weapon attacks or the Combo VS.

Story is little muddy as it jumps back and forth between the different factions and may take several runs to fully understand what on EDN III is going on. But it has the certificate of Capcom by being over the top and huge monsters that wanna eat ya!

Gameplay is somewhat wonky and you may want to play with a controller or remap them if you use keyboard. But the main meat of this game is the co-op campaign which you try out various tactics or weapons you've unlocked to complete them. In addition you have the add on of using custom characters after you beat the campaign first time and all the craziness you and your friends can do. (For example, using the V-Device super nova attack in confined areas and wreck everything! >:D ) Then you've got hidden areas where you can get deadlier weapons or VSs slightly earlier than you should which add to the madness.

On your own, 6/10 but with friends? 9/10 Small gripes but that's it :D

the good:

1. Awesome co-op campaign
2. Good graphic and sound, good optimization, support DX11, looks good plays smoothly
3. Lots, Lots of weapons and gadgets to choose from
4. Some of the best singleplayer/coop Mech action on PC, you can even transform and combine with mechs your friend is piloting, awesome!
5. Awesome boss fight, and you fight a lot of them, it is kinda like Monster Hunter with guns and Mechs
6. Good character customization options, and they shows up in the cutscene, it makes the cutscenes even more enjoyable if you have 4 dudes in funny dress (or vixen in skimpy bikini)
7. Overall good production value, lots of entertainment

the bad:
1. GFWL (not much a big deal for me)
2. This game has a small but dedicated community. You can usually find a player match during weekend, good luck trying to do pvp during weekdays.
3. There is no spectator mode in Co-op, and you can do nothing in the waiting room. Well, at least on PC you can leave the game in the background and browse the internet or do something else.
4. Players from all over the world, and many them do not speak English, some of them rather play solo or with their own friends.
5. Like most of the Capcom, story in this one does not make much sense, the actions in cutscene are great though.
6. I have never seen it on sale, the best you can do is grab it when its 50% off during big sales like summer sales.
7. You have to grind your ♥♥♥ off in order to 100% this game.

Overall, this game is a total blast to play if you have a few friends to play with you (or make a few friends in game)

A pretty great game in the series. A bit more annoying than 1 because you will take a lot of dmg and die a lot, but there are respawn points and you should have plenty of T-energy. Team members in this game are dumber than hell so expect to be a one-man army. The graphics are awesome and hold up well even by today's standards. The game runs pretty smoothly and combat is great. The worst thing though about the game is that when you fire your view rises up so you need to correct it often which is horribly annoying. Probably my least fav in the series, 3 being my favorite, but this is still a solid game. The cut scenes are enjoyable and the voice acting is pretty good. Definitely worth it on sale for a solid once-through.

Lost Planet 2: Graphics are Excellent, Sounds are Better then the first Lost Planet. I had Lost Planet Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition. Music was Splendid, Story was Great but like the first game they had two or three cheap bosses I didn't mind it so much this time around. Co-op was the best part of the game teaming up with friend's and taking on the mission's and bosses. Now down to business Lost Planet 2 is a 8 out of 10

Great game I have loved this game since the 1st one but don't buy it for steam untill steamwork servers take this game. GFWL is the ♥♥♥♥♥iest DRM to ever be put onto a game since Ubisoft announced having to stay online all the time to play singleplayer games.

Steam take this game onto steamworks cause ♥♥♥♥ a defunct service that microsoft no long supports

And why do I reccomend this game?







AWESOME MULTIPLAY(except with GFWL/pc version)

This PC port is a weird beast, it's not optimized terribly well; it runs smooth enough but it seems more demanding than it should be on the AMD 6900 card I currently have, though previous, earlier cards I've owned over the last 4 years performed well enough. I do recommend it, but mostly on condition that you have no access to the respective PS3/360 versions. A controller is also a must-have, playing on keys and mouse is OK, but not ideal - maybe I just got too used to playing it on my PS3. Key bindings are customizable, but they're generally all over the place. The worst part is that Games For Windows Live is required, which you need to have installed before you try launching the game. Hopefully one day everything is migrated from there over to Steamworks.

I love the game, it has what I felt were refreshing arcade sensibilities and a greater emphasis on having fun (remember that?) than usual, western produced shooters. If your idea of enjoyment is playing as a science fiction mercenary/space marine with access to a wide variety of bipedal mechs, variously equipped with numerous weapons - then you're going to have a good time.

Gameplay looks like your typical third person shooter, there are a variety of assault rifles, sidearms, grenades, pilotable, multi-seat mecha, gun emplacements, broken mecha whose weapons (twice the size of a man) you can pull off and use on foot as you like. If your mech starts taking damage, you can hop out and repair it. Levels are broken up between mostly medium sized maps, and vary from snowy tundras to jungles, industrial cities, massive trains, space stations and outer space. Enemies vary between regular foot soldiers, soldiers in mechs (aka VS', aka Vital Suits), humanoid-sized insectoid monsters, tank-sized insectoid monsters, and insectoid monsters the size of buildings (these Shadow of the Colossus size bosses really have to be seen to be believed in some cases).

The story is slightly disjointed and told through the point of view of a number of different factions; the player is not a part of the story, rather given the role of a regular soldier, thus you see things from numerous perspectives (it all comes together beautifully in the end). The story is not confusing or bad, you just need to pay attention. To everything. Once you clear the game, you can use your customizable (appearance, weapons, emotes) multiplayer character in the main game to mix things up a little, these customisation options can be found by collecting the "?" boxes, playing the LP2 in-game slot machine, or by levelling your multiplayer character (something you'll have to do during the campaign these days). Some prior knowledge of the universe (play the first game) is advantageous but not necessary, though it will make things a little clearer.

The game seems to have been made with co-op (up to 4 players) in mind, without a real player or two on hand things can feel a little dull and empty, but this depends how distracted the player is (like I was) by the neat mechs and typically Japanese attention to detail and design. These days you're likely to only encounter bots as teammates and sadly, the AI are as dumb as posts. Still, the game is easy enough up to medium difficulty, which ultimately makes playing on console a slightly uglier, but more enjoyable experience.

Great game. Enjoyed it but they need to work on the multiplayer part a little more. the multiplayer makes things slightly confusing to do when in story mode. I still consider the first one better than the second one.
