  So disappointing

| | See all stripelord's reviews (12)

I loved the first Lost Planet even though it was full of little annoyances. I expected the sequel to improve upon the original but it's worse in every respect.

The AI is shocking. You can be stood 5 feet away from an enemy, facing them and they will not attack until you do. The biggest letdown was the online co-op though. When it works it's great, but you can't join a game half-way through, so if you want to play online, you better get used to waiting for a party to finish the level their on before you can jump in.

These are two of the main faults, but there are dozens more. Seriously, who designed this game!? I expected so much more from Capcom.

  Misunderstood Game

Alot of reviews for this game are negative.

However this game really has good qualities that no other game right now has:

Split Screen Co-op
-This seems to be a dying trend as more and more people would rather play online but nevertheless, people really miss this option.

Lots of things to do.
-Story can go in many different directions from watching a scene and having to input buttons (or not) and changing your direction of gameplay.

Factions
- for all those familiar with mag this game has factions
you can battle as you faction of choice trying to own the majority of and unlcok special things

items etc.
- this game has a system called slot machine where as you can use it to unlock weapons, abilities new looks, gestures and 'callsigns'

LVL99.
-that's right each character has the ability to level up to 99, and you can play as all factions.

GAMEPLAY
though as most Shooters now are, there's granadiers everywhere
which often spoils the fun but you can easily hone your skills.

competative modes
-ranked un ranked
alot of confusion here
ranked levels you and earns you career titles
unranked just levels you up.

game modes.
vs batlles
elimination
post grab
akrid egg

each of these can then be fine tuned even further

there are flaws in the game, but none to say this game is pointless it's not a shooter simulation.
blowing outta proportions arcade shooter = imense fun and something different.

Campaign 8/10 (co-op)
Campaign 6/10 (solo)
Online 9/10
Sound 8/10(dialogue could be better)
Graphics 9/10*

*seamless between gameplay and ingame FMV
