Lost Planet 2
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
The larger than life action of Lost Planet 2, comes to PC! Lost Planet 2 is the sequel to Lost Planet™: Extreme Condition, the landmark third-person shooter which debuted on Xbox 360 and went on to sell over 2.3 million units worldwide after its release. Lost Planet 2 offers deeper insight into the world of E.D.N III and the uncertain fate of future mankind.
Already acclaimed for its visual accomplishments from the console versions, Lost Planet 2 will define the 3D experience on the PC. Stunning environments will immerse the player in NVIDIA Vision Surround technology, and the rebalanced gameplay and streamlined control mechanics make Lost Planet 2 PC the ultimate Lost Planet experience.
A decade has passed since the events of 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. Mankind has engaged in a civil war to take control of the precious Thermal Energy that powers weapons and vehicles on E.D.N. III and resulted in a separation into various factions.
Players will control heroes from each faction across 6 interconnected episodes, viewing the war from the perspective of each, creating a truly unique interactive experience. 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.
The intense and action-packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online. Beyond the deep single-player and co-op modes, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes allowing up to 16 players to compete online, each with their own customizable avatar.
No action game would be complete without an arsenal of weaponry, and 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. The grappling hooks that made the gameplay in Lost Planet a true 3-D experience are back, allowing gamers to gain tactical advantage by moving to elevated locations quickly.
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.

Great game.PM_DMNKLR | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all PM_DMNKLR's reviews »
You want action? We got it. You want aliens? We got that too. You want loads of fun and challenging gameplay? Heck yeah we got that! Welcome to Lost Planet 2, similar to the original, but still different enough to be it's own game. Shoot, run, gun, and have fun in a little mech that allows you to be a brute force to be reckoned with. It's not just about survival, it's about obliterating the enemy by any means necessary. Suit up, strap in, check your weapons and get ready for some seriously intense action. THIS. IS. LOST PLA-NET!!!!!

First of all I have to say I probably enjoyed this game more than I should have but the coop was fairly addicting to me and I strongly feel like it was underrated. Lost planet 2 takes a different path from LP1 and changes completely from single player to coop play which is a neat idea but I have to say it was a bit poorly executed. The biggest cons of this game are that controls are actually worse than LP1, the mechs aren't as cool, the story isn't as interesting. On the contrary the game looks much better than the first and the multiplayer modes are more varied than along with more weapons and more customization options including silly emotions and skins for your character. Even though the story and length of the game are lacking the actual coop game play in this game is pretty well done, especially in higher difficulties. You really need to be working together with other players to get through. Another thing I also liked is that it has a few references from the first game which can be cool and then there is the mech combination which is probably the coolest thing in this game, its like the robots from power rangers. If you have friends that are willing to get this game you should definitely get it together and enjoy jolly co-operation but don't count on playing the multiplayer too much because at this point it's probably dead so you've been warned.

It's hard to recommend this game if you have no friends. However, if you're able to jump online with a few shooter-competent friends, LP2 can be loads of fun. True, the story is impossible to follow and the game does suffer from all the design flaws the critics gripe about, but what it does right, it does very right. The environments are beautiful, the level design is as good or better than anything else out there, and the difficulty curve is such that unless you and your buddies come up with a plan, work together, and take your time working through the levels, this game will be impossible. Personally, I like it when a game forces you to be smart about what your doing which LP2 does well.

Lost Planet 2 is a new chapter in this franchise, and is also a very good third person shooter. It has a "drop in, drop out" feature where you can play both single or cooperative mode anytime. The graphic is really good, expecially for giant bosses you will encounter during the main campaign. The only bad thing about the game is the single-player, very boring, so play with a friend or two and you will enjoy the title for sure, even if you haven't played the first Lost Planet.

In Lost Planet 2 there is not really a main character and there are no "bad" to deal with, but only a series of completely anonymous people belonging to various factions in the field. Being basically a third person shooter, most of the time we fight using various weapons and the Vital Suit (or VS): are all the effects of metallic exoskeletons with heavy weaponry, but rather slow in basic movements able to make great strides thanks to the reactors supplied. The management of VS and weapons supplied is the same as seen in the first episode, and in fact did not require major changes as it is well made: each exoskeleton can be fitted with one or two weapons, and our character can disassemble and reassemble in will. Given the propensity native to the multiplayer, it is clear that Lost Planet 2 is well suited to be played with friends, or rather gives by far the best when you can organize a group of four close-knit and fairly experts who can deal with any threat with a minimum of coordination. Also because the IA of Lost Planet 2 can not be taken as an example of excellence, both as regards our comrades "virtual", and especially with regard to the enemies.
