NZGamer writes: "The developers of Lost Planet 2 weren’t kidding when they said that this sequel would be completely different to the original. Soon after their announcement, in-game screenshots of steamy jungles and fern smattered landscapes started to appear. It certainly was a huge departure from the bleak, icy and blindingly white tundras of the first game. Capcom then announced that the sequel will also introduce four player co-operative play into the mix. Needless to say, fans of the original third-person shooter were probably shedding their arctic gloves in anticipation".
