Rated 10 out of 10 by Jamros Awesome Game
Lost Planet is a great game for such a small price. I ecspecially love the controls, and the fact that the game is a third-person shooter was a welcome suprise. The graphics are superb, the sound is great, and for people like me who don't like games that are too hard, the level of difficulty is perfect. There are a few minor criticisms I would give this game, however. The storyline is a bit cheesy, to be honest; I won't give anything away, but without doing much research, I expected this game to be about soldiers fighting aliens, with the overall objective being gathering your men and destroying all Akrid. I was sadly mistaken, but the story is still alright. Also, the length was just okay. I would have become bored with the game if it had been too long, but the game was fairly short. There are eleven missions, and each mission will take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour and a half. Overall, it was a great game, my first on the 360 in fact, and I would highly recommend.
Rated 10 out of 10 by deathmachine One of the greatest games of all time
I just got my Xbox 360 a couple weeks ago and this one of the cheap games I bought. It is probably the greatest game I have ever played. The challenge in this game is near flawless the game has some levels that are easy and some that are pretty hard which I like because I don't like a game where every level is like a walk in the park and I also don't like a game where every level is so impossible that I get bored playing it. The graphics in the game are absolutely amazing.It makes the frozen wasteland you're running around in really come to life. I'm not really sure how long this game actually is cause I haven't finished it yet but from what i've played(up to mission 7) it is pretty long. The storyline is pretty good.The controls are very well layed out.The sound is also pretty good.There aren't very many weapons in this game but riding in the VS robots is really fun. You should definitely get this game. I can't wait for Lost Planet 2 to come out.

Rated 10 out of 10 by spidersean728 AWSOME GAME!!!
I played this game at my friends house and it was awesome! I am going to get an xbox 360 for christmas and I a hoping this along with madden 09 that this is one of my first games. I was playing the worm level I swear it was like watching but playing a real person who is feeling the tremors of the worm shake the earth. I like this better then halo because it represents more of a challenge and it is a third person shooter so I can see what is going on around me. And the graphics i think their better then half the new games that are coming out right now including halo! And the control is very easy know extra little buttons to hit and the vehicles are very easy to maneuver, unlike halo 3 where you have to move the controllers up and down and side to side. It is cool how they really bring the connection of how thermal energy is an important life source, for humans and achrid. SO in all it is a great game.

Cool game for the xbox 360. I did not like the camera angle and the way you shoot on the game because it seemed difficult for me to aim. the bosses are somewhat quiet easy because most bosses have a really large vulnerable spot which can kill them fast with certain weapons. I understand that you are seated in a negative 30 environment but the t-energy ( substance item in Lost Planet that can be found in game) concept to keep you warm kinda sucks because i was empty of t-energy and all i need to do was walk a couple of steps more to sustain me for about 2 minutes and i froze to death which in turn makes me start the whole level all over. You would probably would have to know your way around because the environments are big so you might get lost and possibly freeze to death. I would recommend Renting it for a week ,beat it and forget about it or try finding it for a low price like i did =)
Rated 10 out of 10 by wingnut Great Graphics-Great Game
This game has some of the best graphics I have seen. The game play is better than most. If you like the campaign part of gaming then this game is a must have, because the story line is top of the line. The weapons are powerful, the explosions are very well done, there's like 4 distinctly different grenades, and 3 different guns and a rocket launcher. Then let's not forget the VS (vital suits). These are basically robots that you pilot. They have there own arsenal of even better weapons. They move well and there are several different types. Anything from light armor with speed to heavy armor with better protection. None of them are too slow for the siuation. Everything works well in whatever part of the game you're in. And that's just the tip of the iceberg (no pun intended). This is one of the first games I played on the 360 and I keep coming back to it. I highly reccomend this game.

I bought this game thinking it would be pretty good. And it turned out to be alright. The graphics were good and the sound flowed as well. I thought the storyline was your typical story of good guy bad guy sort of thing with a little twist to it. The game latched on a good concept with the "energy as your main source of health". You have to kill many aliens that are crawling around in order to gain the specific energy source they contain within their bodies. And there are HORDES of these things. They hatch from nests planted within the earth and they will eventually swarm you if you don't take out the nest in time. These freak aliens can be as small as your character to as big as, well.... bigger than some of the buildings in this game! These guys are huge and the graphics along with it make it more realistic which is sweet.This game is good. Its not the greatest but I think the producers latched onto a good concept of collecting energy source for survival from the aliens. The gameplay layout could have been better and the storyline not as typical but other than, everything seems to flow in place.
Rated 3 out of 10 by evildead Nice graphics, but too many annoying cons.
I'm sure majority of the people who hate this game has the same issue with it as I do. The worst part of the game that really kills this game is the stupid therma energy thing you have to keep from draining down to 0, or you die. You get the thermal energy by killing the mobs, but the energy drains so fast, all you can do is run forward as fast as you can while killing. If you try to pick up every thermal energy, it's useles becuz by the time you kill the mob and pick up the energy, it's already wasted. So essentially you are in a state of hyperactivity trying to look around, not get hit but kill the mob, move forward as your energy drains and somehow kill the boss mob at the end. It's waaay to stressfull for both the eyes and hand and not enjoyable. I've played about 1/3-1/2 of the way through and I'm not enjoying it. The graphics are good, but you can't really stand around to enjoy the scenery. The best graphics is the girl in the cinematic cuts. She is eye candy. But besides the nice curve balls, it's not a game I would recommend at all, unless you like to be under stress and duress non stop.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Mr.Awesome758 Not Worth It
Capcom makes excellent games ranging from titles such as Resident Evil, Megaman and Devil May Cry. However, Lost Planet is far from a good game, it's a title that I couldn't believe sold well and got good scores. The game is a third person shooter but the controls are terrible. How are you supposed to play a game when it's all so broken. Pretty much every aspect of the game is mediocre. Presentation is bad. The game just overall just looks like crap. Yet again, Capcom delivers a game with terrible story that ultimately makes no sense and just puts you to sleep cause it's so boring. Lost Planet isn't that long of a game, but at least it offers some challenge, unless it's brought upon the terrible controls this game brings. Don't waste your money. I saw it for a very low price and purchased it and regretted every minute of it. I just hope you don't buy this.
Rated 8 out of 10 by ShaunWhiteHimself Beautiful snowy environments but linear gameplay
I remember playing it on my friend's gaming PC rig back in 2006. It was one of the first games of this gen with a very impressive visually-striking graphics and beautiful winter environment that looked like scenes from "The Day After Tomorrow" or "Trans-Siberian" movies, but farther away in the future and on a different planet. So when I found it used at Gamestop's bargain bin for $2.99 I grabbed it right away. The game still looks impressive after 6 years. I've always been fascinated by snow and this game really makes you feel like you are in a desperately cold cold world with. You will encounter tons of different weapons and operate different transformer-type machinery. The cut scenes also look decent. Controls take some getting used to. Gameplay-wise, it is very challenging game indeed, no easy levels like in Max Payne or GTA! The only complain I have is, the game is very linear, and there's no time for sandbox-like roaming around because your body temperature will drop and you will just freeze to death if you wander into the wilderness for too long. But for $2.99 it's worth it if you are into hard time-based shooters.
