Bought this game a couple months ago and I enjoyed it alot. Then I sold the game to try and get another, big mistake. Recently got the game back during a sell at gamestop and I haven't stopped playing it. I play roughly four plus hours at a time and I absolutely love it. The weapons you get are all unique, the characters you can play are amazingly detailed and the downloads are good too. I would consider this game to be one of the best third person shooters out there involving mobile machines, aliens and fighting other humans. I recommend this heavily for anyone.

At first, this game took a little getting used to, but after the first mission, I started to get the hang of things. Controls were a little different than I'm used to, but thats just the fun and challenge in playing a new game. Their controls are different for the reason that you can do things differently than most other shooter games, and you know, with the kinds of things you can do in the game, the controls just begin to make sense. The bosses are super fun. Almost feels like Im playing Monster Hunter or something like that. Only thing that I thought was really weird is starting a game. It was kind of weird trying to start the new game because you have to host a game in order to start a mission. Bottom line though, this game is a solid game with solid controls, great battles, and is just a TON of fun. I think once more people get this game, more people will be online to play it. Sooooo....WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! BUY THE GAME ALREADY! (My display name is my PS3 SN if you wanna add me)

A decade has passed since the events of Lost Planet, 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. Players will enter this new environment and follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirate on their quest to seize control of the changing planet. Players control their heroes across 6 interconnected episodes, creating a truly unique interactive experience that changes depending upon the actions of the players involved. 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. Beyond the deep single player mode, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes. The intense and action packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online to clear mission objectives with friends.

The first game immersed the player into a well written and creative story that had the player moving from one mission to the next very smoothly, and as a well written novel it was hard to put down. The effects were also well done, you could almost feel your playable character sinking in the snow and they managed to find a way to make the intense cold an issue to the player. The so called sequel is like they slapped together a few modules, blended it with some beautiful art work and kicked it out the door. It should have been marketed as an online only game, not that it would be a very good one. The campaign mode has no story and deserved a 0 not a 1 and is just you hosting an online game that you have set to offline, It is nothing more than a string of capture the flag missions with a red line marking the end of the mission with a count down. This falls in line with the sequels of army of 2 and bad company which also felt incomplete and more like expansion packs.

The first lost planet game was so much fun. It had a great story and it just felt nice. This one got me so exited and I picked it up release date. This game is just to hard and no fun. It has no story what so ever. I may be alone here but I like to play games for their story and just fun factor. The levels are very long and if you die you have to do it all over again. The online was fun and the first day I got to rank 3 but the next day all extited I was playing against level 30's. When you get hit by rockets the level of animation is so much that it takes forever to be able to move again. The graphics are goo but they don't mean much to me. One thing I don't understand is what happened to Wayne ( protaganist in the first one). He wasn't in this one even though the whole first game was about him. You have to go in and destroy people an laird but there is no story backing to inform you why you are found said thing. In my opinion save your 60$!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Wild999999 Unreal tournment not Lost planet 2
I played the first lost planet. I really enjoyed it. It was one of the best third person games I have ever played. Best Mech game I ever played too. The story was so good. I was looking forward to finding out about the 3 main characters left from the first one at the end. There are some huge problems with lost planet 2. No story at all. Its just mission based. basicly they made this game Unreal. You just go around with your squad and shoot things to gain points and level up your character. They could of made this game with any set of characters. They choice to ruin a great game. I just got it I have no idea how long i will keep it because it will get boring really fast doing the same thing over and over again. So thank you capcom on making a game that has nothing to do with lost planet. You just took the characters thats all and make another Unreal tournment. Kinda sad you guys screwed this up so bad. Disappointed alot of people.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Kyuss rated t = lame!!
how you make a survival horror game with sci-fi elements a rated t game?? that alone is weak.the multi play co-op is a been there done that with other games like left 4 dead 2, gears of war 2,monster hunter etc.wow an included bonus is an underwater facility??? can anyone say bioshock???good job!! anyways i played both demos multi and single and my impressions were the same wow looks like the first one cept the snow is limited.same kinda monsters.bosses maybe a little different but nothing overwhelming that we havent seen before if you played demon souls,dead space,nier, and obviously the first lost planet u could throw resistance 1 and 2 in the mix with them as well. i will wait til it hits the 9.99 price. 59.99 for a game that is short in the 5-20 hour range isnt worth that kinda money to be honest.games dont seem long anymore unless its a gta 4 open world filled with side missions etc. like oblivion and fallout 3 as well.
Rated 7 out of 10 by poopywar29 The game is ok.
Some people say this game is hard but it's not hard it's just kind of boring.Your shooting people I thought you should be shooting akrid thats what you did in the first game so I don't know why they changed that.All of the shooters I played lets you take your enemies weapons when you kill them thats not the case here.There are a lot of weapons but you can only pick one gun from each class why is the energy gun considered a machine gun? I have no idea.You can't purchase the weapons you want you have to be lucky to get a weapon in a stupid slot machine.The online is boring and if you don't have good internet it's going to get really laggy and eventually your going to lose connection and that means you have to make up for it by playing another match if you want to be ranked then your going to lose connection again.The co-op is the most fun thing to do and you can play split-screen.I f you complete all of the tutorials you unlock something that might help you rank up.The game is fun if you have a friend to play with but if you don't just skip it.Overall 7.6
Rated 5 out of 10 by XeroMB Could've been better.
I think lost planet 2 is a good game. I like the weapons and the character designs. I think that the first had a pretty good story, but the the second was just terrible. It was like they had two hours to finish it. Everyone thinks it is like Halo and I really don't get that. I think it is it's own unique story and characters. But if its anything the weapons are kinda similar. I think the worst part is the difficulties they never really change. But one of my favorite things is the many people who play and the bosses. But i think if the story was better many more would play it and another difference is that the first game was a long enough story, but the levels are to short and. I don't know if I could reccomend it to anyone depends on their taste. If you like action,sci-fi and role playing. It'll be a heck of a game but if you don't like those catergories then you will not enjoy this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by k1ngd0mharts good
online is great and fun. all the customization is great as well as the boss battles. other than what i mentioned the rest is fun but not as great. all in all a game that's worth it. the online is what keeps me playing. the graphics are fantastic especially during all the boss battles, it kept me entertained just looking at the monsters while they were trying to eat me:) i dislike the way they made the chapters, took roughly no more than 3-4 min if even to complete the chapters. the boss chapters were good though, they took a good amount of time and took strategy and teamwork. the emotes are funny and a good add. the nicknames(don't remember their correct titles) are nice also. the story is repetitive but can still entertain because you go through a few different factions theoughout the entire story. imo it is worth buying.
