This sci-fi sequel seems like it should have everything you need in a shooter, but a shocking number of design missteps suck out much of the fun.
don't you mean ouch? /on topic That's pretty low, guess this is one of those games you either love, or hate.
That's not very far from the score they gave Lair - another beautiful game that was widely regarded as disappointing. And "beautiful disaster" might also apply to LP2 - and that sucks. I'll still give LP2 a rent, but I'm going to be pretty disappointed if they really botched it up this bad. I actually enjoyed Lair, and as with that game I'm hoping LP2 is better than this score would indicate. Maybe the 7's and 8's from other sites are more representative...
I mean the demo was amazing! I loved the 1st mp demo. Wtf happened to this game?
Capcom made it.
I liked the first demo as well. Second demo was not that great though.
The first demo also had a major flaw with smaller enemies not being on the same screen as your teammates point of view. So they look like they're shooting at nothing or getting tossed around by nothing. I seriously hope they dont F-up Dead Rising 2!
The first demo really had me hyped for it...cant believe the scores Im seeing.
and to think that some x360 folks were comparing this to U2 LMAO!!. First Alan now this. All their hyped games falling flat on their faces.
to think that I had hoped the spirit of gamesmenship would sweep across the newly redesigned N4G, but alas, I guess that was to much to hope.
didn't see this coming at all. Thought this would be a majority 8s and 9s kind of game. Wtf happened Capcom? Dare I wonder how Dead Rising 2 will be?
I wasn't getting this POS any ways. The demo was horrid, so wasn't that MP beta. All in all, if you like this game don't let a score wield you away from it.
What happened to Capcom this gen?
I'd love to know too.
the decide to scam their consumers with charging for content on the disk
6/10 from IGN & 5.5 from Gamespot. Flop confirmed. Crapcom just can't make a game above mediocrity this gen.
I wonder if Takeuchi is simply not that good?
My most respected site gave it a 5.5. Lmao Sorry Capcom. It seems you need to try a little big harder next time. Edit. They even used the music when they've reviewed Demons Souls, so I was expecting some kind of an epic game. What a let down.
A store nearby broke the street date and I was going to pick it up tomorrow. Guess I'll pass on this till I find it somewhere for like $20 like I did the first one.
Capcom what the hell is wrong with you this generation first with; Resident Evil 5 not being scary as it used to be like the old Resident Evil games No character DLC for Street Fighter 4 so you guys managed to release another SF game a year later with more characters. Lost Planet 2 being a disappointment And where are the rest of the other games that we want to see such as: Onimusha, Dino Crisis and so on. Plus if you guys manage to make Resident Evil 6 I expect Kinji Mikami to make it.
Shinji Mikami, on the other hand...could but yeah Capcom is BURNING hard!
I remember the fanboys hyping this turd last year when they thought it was exclusive to their console.
ROFL yeah, I remeber that too; Halo 3 MLFanboy Pro, Soda Fanboyinsky, NatsuX Fairy Fanboy, etc.. all were hyping this game like crazy's, LOL
Hank Hill. The game looked absolutely great back in the days. Graphics were top notch and the action looked fantastic. Oh well, MS made the right decision by not keeping it exclusive.
I were expecting this game, the demo was good :( RDR is the only game thats worth buying this month
dam i was gonna buy this game also i guess not
i got crap from everyone for saying that lost planet 2 will be crap. Guess what. I am right again. I have no idea why the first Lost Planet was praised by x360 fans. LP1 is absolutely rubbish. Must be the high standards PS3 we fans are use to. LP2 was doom to fail and fail it has. As i said a billion times. Crapcom should have never closed Clover and let go of Hideki. That was their biggest mistake. Sitting on their asses and trying to ride on their success from last gen really has been their downfall. Oh how far the mighty have fallen. From creating some of the best games last gen like DMC, RE4 and Ominusha to crap like Dark Void, Bionic Comando and this Crap. Crapcom should go back to the drawing board and start developing a true next gen Ominusha.
Ok the original LP came out in 2006, I believe one month after the PS3 was released (in NA). I was not console gaming at that time, but I do remember that at that time the "PS3 standards" were not even been a shadow on the horizon; furthermore, if I had to guess from the tone of most fanboyesque comments: the 360 crowd was just happy to have it, while the PS3 had the dubious destiction of the lowest rated launch in the history of consoles(1). I guess those standards needed some time for coalescence to take place and for Sony and its first party developers to get their butts in gear and put out games that really showcased the Ps3 strengths, I get that. What I don't get is the comments about PS3's owners high standards and how that has anything to do with LP1? (1) http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... I hav
Wow, I didn't expect such low scores. Wonder how things went so wrong, they had two demos, some positive previews, and hype. OUCH!
Bargain Bin at the very most
But at the same time, it's not. They could've done so much better with this game.
terrible game....but the demo was fun though
I could see it coming, but 5.5? What's happened to you Capcom?
What a turd game.
Still getting it, the co-op was fun.
Wow! And to think, I was so pumped up for this game when Capcom released gameplay footage of this game last year..ugh
but u can make it up to me by making a next gen omunisha and mega man legends and then well call it even ight
After playing the demo.
The problem with Capcom is that they're relying on western studios to develop most of their sequels. Dead Rising 2 is up next, isn't it? We'll see how much Inafune cares about the series he creates.
The video game industry in Japan is like tha American auto industry in the 80s. Japan is complacent using 15 year-old ideas.
This is very dissappointing. I enjoyed the first game a lot. I think I'll still check it out, but what were they thinking with the saves? Why wouldn't they allow you to save a little more often? Did they not learn from Dead Rising 4 years ago? I think it was rushed. I do agree with some lame games lately from Capcom. Bionic Commando was ridiculously short. And although better than I expected it still was a horrible game. Dark Void is just a joke. Plain and simple Resident Evil 5 is the exception though. I thought it was an excellent game. WHo cares if its not scary? I think Dead Rising took over and that's fine with me. Maybe we are just getting older and we don't think the 5th sequel in a series is as scary as the first in a series.
Wow! This is honestly, unexpected. -_-
http://au.ps3.ign.com/artic... i refuse to support CAPCOM and their second rate products. we're too far into the ps3 life cycle to be once again served this crappy port of a crappy game. my preorder has now been withdrawn. don't reward pure laziness.
The real question is "What happened to reviewers?" The guy from gamespot is just one of these guys who learnt to play on this generation of consoles. Stupid assholes can't accept a real difficult game!
Worth a rent I'm sure.
MP demo was really boring. Felt like I was playing a 2-3 year old game.
Wow this game is starting to remind me more and more of Monster Hunter. Love or hate it.
