worthy sequel

on 11/2/2013

The story takes place on the planet E.D.N. 3, a once frozen planet completely covered in snow now largely changed in the ten years since the adventures of Wayne and Co. in the first game. Instead of having one character go through the game chapter-hopping, they all involve different groups with different objectives that will come to a head near the end. Read More

Product Overview

A decade has passed since 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. 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 will control their heroes across 6 interconnected episodes, creating a truly unique interactive experience that changes depending upon the actions of the players involved. 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. 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. However, 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.

Review One of the more frustrating reasons I severely disliked the first Lost Planet was because it played like you were running through a large batch of syrup. Your solider was slow, turning around to fight the enemy was like watching a three-point turn from a Semi-truck; there were so many reasons controls bothered me that I can't think up enough analogies. Just to put it simply, they sucked...That sort of movement was a big turn off. With Lost Planet 2 this bitter memory is long since gone. The character controls are much faster and more responsive than the first. Switching between weapons is nearly instantaneous. The overall movement and response time in the midst of combat is so much better than the original Lost Planet. Bring able to hook onto a ledge, immediately start firing your weapon or, better yet, hooking onto the bottom of a tall building and hanging there firing your weapon is damn nice. There is so much range of motion with your character, and quick motion at that, you'll simply forget all those bad memories of sluggishly running in the snow after someone or away from someone. Those days are over!...A pair of concerns with the first Lost Planet was the fun factor and longevity of the game. The first game was frustrating in so many areas. Getting knocked down by a VS constantly was no fun. Having to do ridiculous things like deal with emerging enemies out of nowhere was not much fun. Worst of all having a 5-6 hour length of gameplay certainly didn't feel rewarding at the end of the day. There was a lot to do, but not a lot to fun to be had in a short amount of time...Thanks to online play, a better story and a neat/fun co-op mode there is a lot to be had here. If you count the campaign mode with the online mode then you're going to have 20-30 hours of fun here before you need a break. It all depends on your love and dedication to the game. For me, I could go back and complete this game again. There are loads of trophies to be had and there are better letter scores (you get scores at the end of each mission) to be had here. In other words, the game provides you with room for improvement that your pride will require you to go back and replay it again. This game is worth the $59.99, as you'll get every bit of that back in fun and online play...Now, is the game perfect? No. It still has some flaws like the storyline, but damn it they improved it so much that you have to give them props for it. This game is good, despite what other bitter reviewers are telling you...Check it out and send me hate mail if you think otherwise. In this reviewer's eyes, a pair that have seen the frustrating gameplay and lack of fun from the first Lost Planet, Capcom has done a complete 180 with this title.
