E.X. Troopers is a spin-off title to Capcom's Lost Planet series. Like the main series, it takes place on the thawing ice planet of E.D.N. III. Yet, even one single glance at the game is enough to tell you that this is not Lost Planet as you've seen it before. Instead it's a manga-style, flashy, over-the-top story of a boy and his giant robot. And while the deviations from its parent series are extreme (for better or for worse), there is plenty to love in E.X. Troopers.
