About the 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.

One of the best Co-op Games I've played.

The art design is superb and engaging,the visuals are impressive even 3 years later, and the game runs beatifully on pc. Story isn't deep but if you're in the cheesy b-movie it's incredibly entertaining. Voice acting is good again in that B-movie feel. The sound effects are top notch, especially those gun sound effects. The Music is well fantastic gives the game a very epic feel to it.

The gameplay is just as good, actually forget that it's better. Shooting feels rewarding with lots of varying guns from hand cannons,revolvers, to a gunsword (yes that exists in the game). Vital Suits add another layer of variety and are a blast to use especially the PTX. Lots of levels with mutliple objectives in them that Give the game Variety. And then there is the awesomeness that is the co-op playing with 3 other players hell even with one other it's still really fun. there is also competative multiplayer, but no where near as good as co-op.

I have 2 issues with this gamone of which is just for the pc version of this. First off games for windows live and because the pc version uses it, no one plays it, so you're better off getting the other versions or just buy an extra copy for friends. 2nd one is that, you can't drop in a game, You have to wait until the party is done completing a level, I have no idea who though this was a legitamet good idea. Aside from those minor problems This is a Fantastic Third person co-op Shooter Well worth the 20$.

So here is the deal with Lost planet 2...I actully like this game. I still have it on the Ps3, so i got it here so me and my friends could play. Someting no1 tells you is that you need Games For Windows Live. You know the nonsense that won't even be supported in 4 months by MS? So then what? Why sell a game that we may not be able to log into in a few months? Not cool Steam. There really needs to be a patch for this puppy very soon.

Other than that....game is AWESOME ( if you like the type of game it is ). Big bosses, meh musical score, cool enviorments, meh story ( again...know why you are here ). If you like blowing things up with mechs, giant weapons and four friends, then here you go. If you are looking for dep player development in a four player co-op game...then look elsewhere...and let me know what you find cause i would like to play it ( BL1 and 2 don't count lol ).

Okay, before you look at the pricetag and say "Lost Planet 3 is cheaper!!!". DON'T BUY IT... This game is better in many ways, let me point it out:
Chapter Select screen: + (Not in LP3)
Big variety of enemies and entertaining/Epic monsters: + (Not in LP3, you only fight "Akrid"(Aliens) and NEVEC soldiers in this game (SPOILER, SORRY))
Big variety of weapons and Vital Suits (Robot suits): + (Not in LP3, Why do I ONLY HAVE 8 DIFFERENT WEAPONS?!)
Teamwork and Co-op campaign: + (Not in LP3, LP3 is based on a singleplayer campaign.)
Laser/Plasma weapons and Rocket Launchers: + (Not in LP3, Why the hell not?!)
Character Customization, and the ability to use them in multiplayer and co-op/singleplayer: + (Not in LP3)
Free traversal of Environment with Grapplehook: + (Not in LP3, How do you restrict A GRAPPLEHOOK?!)
A great point system that counts your deaths, points and kills. Then gives a Devil May Cry styled Letter score from S to D. (S, A, B, C, D, from best to worst)
(Also, not in LP3. All these great features are stripped from the 3rd game, which gives a too linear experience.)

Apart from that, the gameplay is an Instant classic, it's not too advanced, and easy to learn. The graphics are great on max settings, not the worst I've seen even though they're a little dated. The teamwork works splendid, there is in-game voicechat but is mostly used in Multiplayer battles, not so much in co-op. The weapons range from the single Handgun to a VS Artillery Barrage, yes, you can take it off the VS and carry it around...! All in all, this is one of my Favorite 3rd person shooters of all time. Sad it went the way of Max Payne with the first 2 games being good, and the 3rd being a so-so. But atleast we still have the 2 first games. This was kind of 2 reviews in one, but I hope it changed your mind on LP2 and LP3.

-EDIT: I Completed Lost Planet 3 and the story improves a lot down the line, but the gameplay does not. The story is just as Epic as in Lost Planet 1, so if you still consider getting the 3rd game, do it for the story and you will not be disappointed. Only by the gameplay limitations.
