Lost Planet is a solid shooter. Its visual style at times is stunning, and coupled with the Godzilla-sized enemies remains a challenge throughout. With a control system akin to superior combat games like Rainbow Six the title could have been more enjoyable but if you like your games with Rambo-esque body counts then you will see plenty of enjoyment here.
For others this may become tiresome, and the single player can be seen-off in less than 10 hours depending on difficulty. With news that a sequel is rumoured PlayTM can only hope that Capcom have taken on-board the lessons learned from this title and deliver something as epic as the alien monsters it so wonderfully creates next time around.
