IGN UK: Lost Planet 2 Review

Lost Planet 2 is at its best when you're a giant robot fighting other giant robots – in other words, when it's simple. At its core it's a potentially great action game and it's very good-looking, but it explains itself so incredibly poorly and has such an awkward structure and poor checkpointing that a lot of the fun is ruined by interminable frustration – not to mention the fact that it's basically unplayable as a single-player game. It has a few genuine standout moments, especially on the rare occasions that everything works in co-op, but they don't balance out the faults.

Presentation - 7.5
Graphics - 8.5
Sound - 8.0

I had high hopes for this game.
It is disappointing to see such a low review score, but I will give it a rent before blowing the game off.

Meh, the first game was really boring. I tried the demo for this one and It was average at best.

For a second there I was beginning to think the scale was 8-10.

I thought that the first game was really good and from what I'm seeing, plus, the demos I find the sequel to be quite nice too, specially the graphics. But judging from the scores that this game have been getting then I'll wait for the price to drop before making my purchase.
