IGN: Lost Planet: Colonies Review

If you fell in love with Lost Planet in its previous iteration, you'll find a lot to like here. If you haven't given it a try, this is the version to pick up and have a go with. The new single player modes are fun, but they are just a repackaging of old content. If you felt full after Lost Planet, this release won't do anything for you. With new weapons, modes and maps, the online game is more substantial and intriguing than ever.

Just remember that while you can now play cross platform between PC and 360, none of Colonies Edition is compatible with the previous release and so you're dealing with a significantly smaller potential online community and all of your old saves won't work. On the PC, a Gold Windows Live account is essentially necessary to play online. The PC only community just isn't there.
