    Ive never played a Lost Planet game ever, but seriously there is a third game coming out? Why is this the first time I heard of this lol. The first 2 were not perfect I heard.

    i found both first games ok… the games was a bit awkward in its control setup and because of its asian nature. but the second game had fun online co-op for 4 players. i think the third will be the best in the series…

    @1: I LOVED the first one, played the shit out of this game, also online mp. postgrab mode: man i played that 247, my girlfriend hated the game. i was addicted to it :) it is actually one of my favourite games this gen. seriously. i mean it has some severe flaws and all but there´s something about it…it just clicked with me.
    that said, i was so pumped for LP2 (obviously), then it arrived and i couldn´t believe it, literally couldn´t believe it. they made a very mediocore coop game out of it. what a shame. the franchise has so much potential and after LP 1 i thought ok the game wasn´t without flaws but it has a great potential, they will look at what worked and scratch what didn´t, lp2 will become a true masterpiece of ol´capcom glory…well, they did the opposite and almost ruined the ip. now 3 is coming. i am not having any hopes for this but i would really like to be wrong.

    @1: if you plan to play LP1 please pick up the 360 version it´s miles ahead. game is a bit dated by todays standards though.
    i am not saying this to offend ps3fanboy here ;) but i tried both versions and the 360 version is the better one.

    @4
    I might buy it one day then. Lost Planet that is. Lost Planet 2 was actually one of THE games that I wanted to buy before I got my first PS3 lmao. I heard bad stuff about it so I focused on Dead Space and COD afterwards and totally forgot about this series.

    Cheers for the info.

    EDIT: damn I have no Xbox360 :(

    the ps3 port really is messed up though. i wouldn´t recommend it. the engine for lp was designed with the 360 in mind. the ps3 version has some graphical issues, fire, smoke effects look strange and the framerate drops. i wouldn´t recommend it for ps3, in that case i´d rather not play it at all. seriously it felt like i was playing a different game, that version really is inferiour. i am no fanboy whatsoever, it´s just the truth, based on my experience. i believe you can find much more details about this with google, it´s not just my opinion.

    i loved the controls for this game and i miss them for third person shooters. reload by pressing the right analog stick, doing a dodgeroll by pressing analog and a. quick turns with the bumper triggers. it was so much fun even with the clunky character movement.
    sorry ;) but it really is one of those games i fell in love with.

    LP2 was a great co-op experience. For players that skipped the first, but bought the second because of the co-op and giant insectoid bosses, LP2 was definitely awesome.

    Awkward controls and that ridiculous sandjet battle aside, it was a good co-op centered game with very good production values.

    @7: yes, that´s probably true. see, i couldn´t finish it. i played halfway through the game and then never came back shaking my head. it just dissappointed me so much, but then, yeah, i had HUGE expectations, i mean LP was one of if not THE new ip on the next gen consoles i had the highest hopes for. i thought it would become a great franchise. lp2 probably wasn´t a bad game but it certainly wasn´t that supergame i wanted it to be.
