About Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 picks up 10 years since the events of the original adventure and the landscape has evolved dramatically. With the success of terraforming activities, the planet’s ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and other new environments. The story has advanced beyond Wayne Holden as players will now follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirates on their quest to seize control of E.D.N III. Players will move their heroes through different stories creating a truly unique and interactive experience. With this concept, gamers will have the opportunity to engage in the story in a more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from various perspectives.

Summary

Not only are there plenty of thrills and spills along the way, intense action to enjoy and new Akrid to marvel at, you should get quite a buzz when taking Lost Planet 2 online with a group of mates and taking on some of the larger beasts.

We like

  • Playing with pals in four player co-op.
  • The wide range of weapons and cool VS Suits
  • The brand new Akrid and gigantic big bosses

We dislike

  • Playing the campaign alone. The A.I. is useless.
  • The bouts of slowdown
  • The music. It just loops over and over again

See PSU's review on Metacritic & GameRankings

Despite its shortcomings and lukewarm response from the gaming press, the original Lost Planet showed signs of greatness that boded well for future iterations of the franchise.

That same concept still applies to Lost Planet 2; however Capcom has created a game...
