When I first put on game I didn't like it, I didnt like the game mechanics and wasn't that keen on the style, has the feel of a Japanese comic (manga if you like), I finished mission 1 and just stopped. However 6 months later I went back and I really like it now.. my problem first time playing I was also into COD Modern Warfare 2 and think the difference in game play and style put me off. Now I have embrassed what makes this game good and am loving it. So its like the movie Starship Troopers but on snow (and your fighting on your own most of the time), also every so often you find battle robots that you can get in and kick butt (these look like ED-209s from Robocop). The story is nice and keeps you hooked and there is a good range of guns and grenades (pretty much same as Halo, bullet or plasma types). Its an older game so the graphics aren't great but wouldn't say it matters as it still works for the Manga style... Anyway play past mission 2 and you will be glad you gave it a chance like I did :-)
this is the first time i played this and was very tempted not to get it because of one of the reviews,
the best thing i can say is im glad i got it anyway, its a great game, full of good ideas great graphics, maybe a little addictive though lol,
if your looking for a good game then this is a must have, and a great bargain price too. happy gaming
I don't know about you, but i loved the oiginal, so if you liked it aswell then you are going to love this game. It expands on all my favourite things about the original, such as the guns and being the akrid!!! So i definately recommend this game.
If you liked the original (as i did) you'll love the extra online modes, It's worth the money just for these, You'll find yourself addicted to the online multi player mode, I can't put it down, those clever japenese must have added some kind of addictive drug to it ,you just can't get enough of it. Akrid hunter seems most popular online and leveling up it quite fast. A must for all original LP veterans.
Hurry up with a LP 2 please.
The online in the original Lost Planet was very good. Capcom have taken it and made it excellent with the extra modes and weapons, and in my opinion, it is one of the best shoot 'em ups available to buy for the online play.
However in the original, the single player campaign became dull. It's still not great, but the new modes can be fun and add a little bit extra spice to the offline play.
An extremely worthwhile buy for those who enjoy playing shooting games online.
