I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve only played the first installment briefly, and back then I was intrigued, but not enough for a second rental. Recently a friend told me that he played all the way through Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and stated that it was just an “average” game plagued with bad launch title syndrome, but a nonetheless interesting take on third-person shooters. Then, I ask, why is there a sequel? Critics gave the first game a gigantic middle finger, and the sales weren’t extraordinary, so what’s the point?"
