Set ten years after the tumultuous events from the original Lost Planet, this sequel finds the formerly frozen world of E.D.N. III undergoing a dramatic transformation. What was once an inhospitable arctic wasteland has given way to tropical jungles and arid deserts. Yet the gigantic, insect-like creatures known collectively as the Akrid have also adapted to the changes. Lost Planet 2's action is viewed from a third-person perspective like its predecessor, as you engage the Akrid on foot or from within a more expansive variety of armored "Vital Suits." You'll also choose from an assortment of customizable weapons, from machine guns and rocket launchers to sniper rifles and laser guns.
A single-player campaign spanning six episodes has you controlling a series of characters from their unique perspectives, and a four-player cooperative mode has your team fighting for its survival against the Akrid swarms. Competitive multiplayer modes are also included, with a maximum of 16 players supported in a choice of game types. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game GuideLost Planet 2, click here for more details
