i had played the first lost planet online and hinestly thought it was terrible and unfair, you versus people who play the game day in day out. fair? nope. the capmaign was also based less around enjoyment and based more around HURRY UP OR YOU'LL DIE. although lost planet two seemed to be diffrent, well, i was wrong. theres no thermal rubish in this one atleast but its still appalling online. this time in the sence that the longer you play the better equipment you get, making it almost impossible for new players to stay alive over 30 seconds.
the campaign is a different matter though. it has the potential to be a great story but is not empahsised enough as you just casually go around killing aliens. it is still loads of fun however, the boss fights are great! and it does include a good customization for your character to make him feel unique. this along with the four player co-op make a rather fun game, however it gets old fast. if your looking for a fun co-op experience lost planet 2 is great. if you aree looking for a long lasting RPG or multiplayer game, i suggest you avoid it.
