Lost Planet 2

Post by Billy Goodgun on Tue Apr 13, 2010 9:49 am

Lost Planet 2. It's out in May. Any takers?

Now, before everyone starts bashing it, let me just point out I didn't like the first (I played the demo). I also didn't the campaign demo of Lost Planet 2 that was released ages ago. What I will say, though, is that I had the pleasure of playing the multiplayer at the Eurogamer Expo at the tail end of last year, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

There's an MP demo out soon (I think?), and I urge you to give it a try. I'm giving serious thought to picking this up upon its May release, as it was good, solid fun, and a bit different. It played a little bit like the criminally neglected Red Faction: Guerilla, only the controls felt slightly tighter, and the grappling hook you use to get around adds a great extra dimension to the third person shootiness (much like the jetpacks in Red Faction). The maps were well-designed and pleasingly detailed even five months ago, so I'm definitely keeping a close eye on this for the reviews.

So's your face.

But seriously, head over to the NowGamer site and check out their review. It's a game made for co-op (as in genuinely built for co-op), and if I can round any wingmen, I'll gladly play it through in a four-player awesome-fest.

I think the general consensus on this seems to be: frustrating single-player campaign that comes into its own as a co-op experience. Solid online fun in versus mode.

I'll probbaly end up buckling like a weak belt and getting Red Dead Redemption at some point, too, just because I am weak. I think it's out later this month, but I don't know when.

I'd also quite like to give Alan Wake a spin, but I'll wait for it to come down in price first.

I'm still waiting for Crackdown 2, as well, which is out in July.
