Lost Planet 2 Still Full of Orange Goo

Lost Planet was a mildly successful game that debuted on the Xbox 360 back in its infancy period.  In those days there weren’t really many great games, so I gave this new franchise a chance.  It honestly wasn’t a bad game, but it didn’t really do anything for me, so I haven’t put much stock in the sequel which is due to hit store shelves the second week of May.  Although, after watching a new gameplay video my tune may be changing.

Lost Planet 2’s shining feature is its 4-player on-line co-op for the campaign portion of the game.  It looks like a blast to play with some buddies, but fear not, if you’re a complete tool with no friends you can still play with bots.  Hopefully that isn’t the case, but if it is maybe you should take a look in the mirror and figure out why you’re such a loser rather than playing video games by yourself all the time.

You’ll see in the video how much action is going on at once, and it looks like quite a good time.  The graphics look wonderful and there seems to be some arcade style scoring in the campaign, which should make for some interesting play with your buds.  Like I said earlier, I really didn’t have this game on my radar, but after watching this vid it’s starting to make a few blips.

If my crew is down with it I’ll probably be picking it up.  4-player co-op is a blast and it’s a shame more games don’t take this approach.  Hopefully Lost Planet 2 can capture the 4-player magic that Halo 3 and Borderlands mastered.  If it does I’ll surely add it to my collection to play with my digital bros.
