Story: The story takes place on the planet E.D.N. III, a once-frozen planet completely covered in snow now largely changed in the 10 years since the adventures of Wayne and Co. in the first game. Instead of having one character go through the game chapter-hopping, they all involve different groups with different objectives that will come to a head near the end.Read more ›
-First of all, there is actual strategy involved when you play in either single player or co-op, unlike many other shooters out there. There are a ton of different weapons and mech suits to use, each with its advantages and disadvantages, that you need to switch between in order to successfully complete each mission.
-Second the game has a large variety of environments, from outer space, to frozen tundra, to thick jungle. The level design within each of these environments is great. The grappling hook ability (á la Bionic Commando) gives the game a more open and free roaming feel than many tunnel vision shooters since you don't always need to follow a single path to get through a level.
-Third, awesome boss battles, which for me is a crucial part to any good game.
-Fourth, and most important to me, the game is one of the best when it comes to couch co-op. There is a great amount of strategizing to be done between players, which is so much more fun when your talking to a real person sitting next to you. This is especially evident when contrasted to the Gears of War games which can best be summed up as "crouch behind something and then hold x to shoot until everything is dead" without any need to talk to or strategize with your partner. Lost Planet 2 far outshines that franchise and just about any other shooter I have played.
Now for the Cons:
-No intelligble story. I didn't play the first game so I might be missing something there.
-Sometimes it's hard to know what to do to get through a level. I only list this because other people have complained about it.Read more ›
But this isn't the same Lost Planet I knew...I was actually very amazed at the changes!
First off, if you hated being tumbled around in the first game, well...it's not any better this time around. But there ARE new twists that help to balance out the gameplay.
*actual "gameovers" aren't as easy now, as data posts now act as "respawn" points, bringing a sort of online shooter feel to the game.
*actual "deaths" are now an issue, as your T ENG does not automatically replenish your life gauge when you're injured. so you'll need to be quite defensive during your playthrough.
*the addition of the battle gauge limits how many times you can "respawn" in the game...and it's shared by all co-op participants. activating data posts adds 500 to your BG pool, while respawning costs 500.
*the addition of shields greatly help to elevate the possibilities during fire fights; more defensive approaches can be plotted and more rewarding co-op gameplay can be had. also the new "battle armor" helps to even the odds in bigger battles, while standing in for your life until depletion.
*a new ability to shoot T ENG to your team mates has been added. basically just hold Y and push LT and you'll switch to your T ENG pool. if an ally is low just aim at them and pull LT, you'll send bursts of T ENG their way. great for avoiding costly respawns.
There are so many other co-op enhancements in the game that I find it odd that GameTrailers would call its multiplayer "out-dated". But whatever, my opinion is that my money was well spent. Just make sure to have friends over...seriously, the game has several points where having a helping hand can turn frustration into fun.
