Lost Planet 2 Review

Today let's talk about Lost Planet 2

The pic above is a close up of my custom character from Lost Planet 2, which is a game for PS3, Xbox360, and starting this Friday PC.

I'll just start by saying I've had this game on the PS3 since it's release day, and plan on getting it this Friday when the PC version releases. Lost Planet 2 is a over the shoulder shooter set in a futuristic setting where groups of soldiers and pirates go from planet to planet harvesting it's thermal energy. The game's story is incredibly over-the-top and cheesy, but that's one of the games charms. The game's multiplayer is nothing amazing, and has some pretty bad balance issues. (example: when using the shotgun you can stunlock other players, preventing them from doing anything until they die.) The Singleplayer/Co-Op is more than enough to buy the game for though. The campaign supports up to 4 players and last for 6 episodes each with around 3-6 chapters each.

As you play through the game you earn experience for the faction of your choice, which unlocks more armor combinations for said faction. You will also earn credits which you spend on a roulette that will unlock you some of the various things: weapons, armor, titles, and skills. Once you have completely beaten the campaign you can use your custom character in it, and it will even show up in cutscenes, making some pretty amusing scenes.


Overall if you like shooters, First person or other wise I would reccomend this game.

  3. I'm not so much into this game. The multi-player mode, is it through the ether or is it just a "invite-3-friends-over-for-a-game" kinda deal?
