Insgesamt sind die elf Levels knackig, am Ende einer Mission wartet zudem noch ein extraharter Brocken. Gegen Riesen-Alien, Megamech und Flugmonster benötigen selbst Profis mehrere Anläufe, bis sie sich eine Taktik zurechtgelegt und die Schwachstelle des Endgegners gefunden haben. Grafisch tobt auf dem Eisplaneten ein unvergleichliches Effektgewitter: Die Feuer-, Rauch- und Nebeleffekte beeindrucken, der ganze Bildschirm bebt bei den Explosionen. Nur in PAL-Auflösung trüben leichte Bildzeilenfehler die atmospährischen Gegenden und detaillierten Kampfroboter. Dank umfangreicher "Xbox Live"-Unterstützung wird auch online viel Schnee aufgewirbelt: Bis zu 16 Widersacher bekämpfen sich in vier Spielmodi. Erfahrene Action-Fans sollten sich Capcoms furiosen Arcade-Shooter nicht entgehen lassen!

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is one of the best games I've played so far and the best title for the Xbox 360 console. I remembered the part of my childhood when I first made contact with the Alien series and the animated version of Starship Troopers, not to mention the Final Fantasy: Spirits Within title that changed my vision on sci-fi animations forever. Fast-paced action, great combat sequences and some of the most aggressive alien beasts around made me enjoy this title more than any other third person shooter I've ever played.

"Lost Planet: Extreme Edition" for Xbox 360 is a fantastic game, in every respect, which in some ways, is quite a surprise. What is weird is that whilst still amazing, single player was a slight let-down, whilst multiplayer is a real dark horse, surprising everyone at the office with just how good it is. With gorgeous graphics that nearly rival Gears of War, and frantic multiplayer, Lost Planet should be at the top of your lost, no matter how many 3rd person shooters you have played this year! Just go for the CE, this time it's worth it!

Lost Planet est un jeu au final loin d’être parfait. Il ne fait pas forcément dans la finesse ou l’originalité, et reste très bourrin. La force du titre vient de sa plastique très next-gen et de son côté action old-school. Si vous avez aimé des films tels que Starship Troopers, il ne fait aucun doute que vous adorerez cette nouvelle production Capcom. Après Gears of War, Lost Planet mérite également une place de choix dans votre ludothèque Xbox 360.

Clocking in at 10-12 hours, Lost Planet isn't terribly long, but there's a definite case of quality over quantity. Challenging and visceral, Lost Planet is one of those games that keeps you coming back, even when you're swearing up a storm after dying. Combine this with the smooth multiplayer and plans for additional content in the future and you've got a winning formula. Lost Planet is well worth finding at your next trip to the local games store.

Still, this is a game that I overlooked for too long. I highly advise other Xbox 360 gamers not to make the same mistake–Lost Planet doesn’t impress on the caliber of Gears of War or Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and it probably won’t dominate upcoming action games or take any game of the year awards, but it is up there with the likes of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Dead Rising, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and other great Xbox 360 action games. Check it out for its single player first and foremost, and then dabble online. Stay warm.

Das noch junge Jahr 2007 hat seinen ersten richtigen Hit. Was Lost Planet vor allem technisch aus der Xbox360 herausholt hat mit Ausnahme von Gears of War sonst noch kein anderes Spiel geschafft, allein das rechtfertigt den Kauf. Doch auch spielerisch wird packende Action von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute geboten. Die Kämpfe auf den Eiswüsten des vergessenen Planeten gegen die Akriden machen jedenfalls mächtig Spaß, sei es als normaler Soldat oder an Bord eines Vital Suits. Die Story hätte man fraglos noch etwas interessanter erzählen können und der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist nicht von Pappe, dennoch wird man knapp 7 Stunden blendend unterhalten. Trotz der linearen Level macht aber sogar ein erneuter Storydurchlauf auf einem höheren Schwierigkeitsgrad Spaß, ansonsten steht ja auch noch der interessante Mehrspielermodus zur Verfügung.

Lost Planet ist ein erstklassiges Action-Spiel und ein Pflichtkauf für alle 360-Besitzer, die mal ausgibig ballern wollen. Die Grafik stimmt, die Story ist einigermaßen spannend, das Gameplay ist zwar simpel, aber dafür einsteigerfreundlich und aufgrund der hohen Schlagzahl auch mittelfristig fesselnd. Die Kampagne ist schnell durchgezockt - danach warten lange Live-Duelle. Den Sprung in die 90er schafft Capcom leider nicht - hierzu hätten die wenigen Fruststellen ausgebügelt und dem Gameplay ein wenig mehr Tiefe verliehen werden müssen. Aber genug gemosert: Wer Action mag, der liegt bei Lost Planet richtig!

Spannend, imposant, unterhaltsam: Lost Planet fängt mit einem Erdbeben an und serviert euch über elf Missionen viele grandiose Nachbeben. Die spektakulären Bosskämpfe gehören zum Besten, was man derzeit auf der Xbox 360 und am PC-Bildschirm erleben kann; das Kreaturendesign der Akriden ist einfach wunderbar. Hier ist so viel Kreativität spürbar, dass man diese Welt der insektoiden Monster am liebsten mit dem Fotoapparat durchstreifen würde. Das Szenario ist so frisch wie Neuschnee, die Cutscenes sind technisch klasse und die Steuerung flutscht. Zwar gibt es zwischendurch kleine Durststrecken in der Dramaturgie, was Story, Bedrohungsgefühl oder das Finale angeht, und vor allem die KI der menschlichen Gegner ist ein großer Schwachpunkt, aber Capcom beweist nicht nur eindrucksvoll, wie Unterhaltung der nächsten Generation aussehen kann, sondern auch, wie man Konsolenaction technisch hervorragend auf den Rechner überträgt.

Auch auf dem PC ist Lost Planet für mich ein tolles Actionfeuerwerk, von denen es in dieser Qualität, besonders auf dem Computer, viel zu wenige gibt. Allein deshalb gibt es für die fulminant präsentierte Ballerei eine Kaufempfehlung. Sicherlich ist das Geballere auf Dauer ein wenig monoton und die Story hätte ruhig etwas gehaltvoller sein können, doch selbst beim zweiten Durchspielen jetzt auf dem PC hatte ich viel Spaß. Etwas enttäuschend ist dagegen der DX10-Support, von der neuen Grafikschnittstelle hätte ich mir schon ein paar mehr Details und eine bessere Performance gewünscht, aber unter DX9 sieht Lost Planet so wenigstens auch klasse aus.

Lost Planet für die PlayStation 3 ist ein immer noch gutes Actionspiel das einfach Spaß macht. Reine Offline-Spieler werden zwar mit einer kürzeren Spielzeit vorlieb nehmen müssen, aber die PS3 Version kostet auch nur rund 40 Euro und bietet noch die zusätzlichen Inhalte, die sich die Xbox 360 Zocker letztes Jahr noch per Xbox Live herunterladen mussten. Wer einfach schöne winterliche Action sucht, wird mit Lost Planet: Extreme Condition kaum etwas falsch machen können.

Tolle Action kombiniert mit einem guten Gameplay und feinster Grafik - das ist Lost Planet. Ein gutes Gegner-Design von den kleinsten bis zu den grössten Feinden lässt den Spieler gar über die teilweise fürchterliche künstliche Intelligenz hinwegsehen. Dies muss er auch, denn an einigen Stellen ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad für Anfänger und Durchschnittsspieler schon arg hoch - umso besser, wenn die Gegner den Spieler einmal nicht wahrnehmen? Grafisch und inhaltlich ist der Titel bis auf die leicht ruckelnde Grafik und die zusätzlichen Multiplayermaps mit der Xbox 360-Fassung identisch. Da das Spiel uns schon vor einem Jahr auf der Microsoft-Konsole komplett überzeugen konnte, macht es uns die nahezu identische Umsetzung für die PlayStation 3 einfach: Es wartet hier ein Hit für jeden Fan von Actionspielen mit stahlharten Nerven!

Capcom is supporting the Xbox 360 with some great exclusive content, with Dead Rising being released last summer and now Lost Planet. While Lost Planet’s single player is short and underwhelming from a narrative standpoint, the gameplay is more than enough to make up for that and the team-based online modes provide a unique alternative to other shooters that are currently available on the console. Lost Planet does have a few annoying flaws, but the game is an old-school action experience that no shooter fan should miss.
85
Xbox 360IGN
Lost Planet is a great game that suffers from a few bad design decisions. The graphics are excellent by any standard with only v-synching issues preventing them from looking truly amazing. The enemy design and amount of action they deliver makes for great gameplay that is hampered by control mechanics that get in the way of the experience. Add in a stumbling story and you have a game that doesn't quite reach the levels of some of the more outstanding titles we've seen in recent months. The bottom line, though, is that the game is a lot of fun and that's all that really matters, isn't it?

The attentive reader has seen by now that Lost Planet is more than worth it, even without the multiplayer which managed to keep us busy for hours despite its many obvious flaws. A game we happily recommend but mostly a strong beginning of hopefully a new promising series from Capcom

It's unlikely to lead Xbox 360 sales, and it won't rule over Xbox Live, but Lost Planet: Extreme Condition provides an impressively solid 12 hours of action and excitement that's just as appealing as any other third-person shooter presently available. Ultimately, it's just a shame that it's arrived on the tail end of the overcooked tidal wave of critical and consumer acclaim lauded on Gears of War - oh, and you never stupidly have to duck behind a wall before getting to leap over it in Lost Planet.

Lost Planet is far from a bad game, but it takes some getting used to and this getting used to might turn off some people. You get an entertaining third person shooter that enables you to use a grappling hook to swing, shoot and climb surfaces. With an art style that is down right gorgeous in regards to the insects. But in order to witness this you have to play a game that is infuriating, nonsensical, and convoluted. The game can’t be recommended for everyone, but if you’re interested in it there’s a good chance that you’ll find enjoyment in it. You just have to be patient though.

Lost Planet ist wie eine Achterbahnfahrt: rasant, atemberaubend und viel zu schnell vorbei. Knapp acht Stunden dauert das erste Durchspielen - hochgerechnet ist Lost Planet damit teurer als eine Kino-Karte. Das war bei Max Payne nicht anders, aber dort gab's eine packende Film-Noir-Story um Liebe und Verrat. Lost Planet tischt albernen Sci-Fi-Quark auf. Das ist dann auch die entscheidende Frage für potenzielle Käufer: Braucht gute Popcorn-Unterhaltung eine spannende Geschichte? Wer ja sagt, der bekommt ein kurzweiliges, aber unbefriedigendes Vergnügen. Wem's egal ist, der bekommt eine perfekt inszenierte Ballerorgie auf höchstem Niveau.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
At less than ten hours in length, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition feels a bit brief, but the frenetic action makes up for the vapid storyline and slightly sluggish feel. And though the online play may not be as robust as in other shooters, it provides an experience unrivaled by any current game on the market. I don’t suspect that Lost Planet will still be on our minds at the end of the year, but it certainly serves as one of the key releases in an otherwise slow winter.

Für anspruchsvolle Shooterfans, denen selbst ein Half-Life 2 zu wenig Rätsel enthält, dürfte Lost Planet nicht der richtige Titel sein, doch wer einfach für 7-8 Stunden sein Gehirn abschalten mag, ist hier goldrichtig. Schon lange nicht mehr konnte man auf dem PC dermaßen brachiale Action erleben, die zudem so hübsch präsentiert wird. Sicherlich hätte man Story und einige Kleinigkeiten besser machen können, doch Spaß macht der Shooter allemal. Ein paar Neuerungen hätte ich mir für die PC-Umsetzung dann aber schon gewünscht, die fraglos hübschen DX10-Effekte dürften aber erst von der nächsten Grafikkartengeneration flüssig dargestellt werden und sind daher eher ein Marketinggag.

Die Kulisse ist zwar unverbrauchtes Action-Neuland und das Abknallen von Aliens macht auch eine Zeit lang Spaß, dennoch ist die klischeebehaftete Story leider nach hinten losgegangen. Es scheint beinahe so, als möchten die Entwickler mit dem Grafikfeuerwerk von der simplen Handlung ablenken. Am Besten kommt der Multiplayer-Modus davon, der im LAN und übers Internet richtig Laune macht. Anspruchslose Spieler, die nicht unbedingt wert auf eine ausgefeilte Story legen, erhalten mit Lost Planet: Extreme Condition eine simple, wunderschöne Ballerei präsentiert.

So, who would we recommend the game to? Everybody who enjoys action games. There are a few catches though. Having a fast rig is a must, as the game can get quite demanding. Being able to withstand a good ten minutes or more of nonstop action helps as well. But that would be about it. Sure, the game has its fair amount of flaws such as quirky controls, bad storytelling and a certain lack of depth. But for all the issues it remains enjoyable and fun to play, something that can’t be said for most titles out there.

Xbox 360GamingHeaven / DriverHeaven
So in the end, is it worth buying Lost Planet? I definitely say “yes” without any hesitation, simply because the game lived up to my expectations, and I trust me, I was expecting a lot. It’s visually stunning, really showcasing the Xbox 360’s powerhouse graphics capabilities and best of all, it has excellent gameplay to match. Third person action, endless bug killing and giant mechs make for a fun and diverse gaming experience. The only real disappointment is that Lost Planet is far too short; lasting around seven hours in single player mode. Even if there is multiplayer, it still can’t hide the fact that the singleplayer experience can be completed in a casual weekend of gaming.

Xbox 360GameSpot
Lost Planet is a great action game because it focuses on tense, thrilling battles that don't require much input beyond a constant trigger finger and healthy desire to kill everything that moves. There's very little downtime in the single-player game, and there's always plenty of stuff to shoot. That makes it easily entertaining if you're just in the mood to kick back and put your brain on standby for awhile. The multiplayer requires much more skill and a slightly more sophisticated, though no less manic, approach. As a result, the multiplayer game is an excellent complement to the single-player action. The brief campaign is a disappointment, but while it lasts, Lost Planet holds its own among the abundant shooters available for the Xbox 360--and considering how great some of those other games are, that's no small feat.

Xbox 360Frictionless Insight
Lost Planet's online play is the single-player campaign's mysterious reflection. All the elements used to construct Wayne's quest for revenge transform into more conventional multiplayer online battles. Instead of battles against overpowered tanks and overgrown bugs, players battle each other on equal terms. There's the usual assortment of battle modes, with Vital Suits replacing vehicles and data posts replacing flags. What makes this more fun than run-of-the-mill online matches is the anchor shot – anyone can use this high-tech grapple to jump up to higher areas, making the entire battle a real 3D scramble. So, never mind the flying samurai robots. Take a trip to Lost Planet and blast big bugs in style – and take the occasional break for multiplayer matches, grapnel-style.

Wer es etwas linearer mag, wird dagegen enttäuscht sein. Ohne eine dicke Portion Experimentierfreude schafft es Lost Planet zu keinem Zeitpunkt, die Konkurrenz zu überflügeln.

In spite of Capcom falling back on a couple of old-school videogame tactics (the constant need for collecting things and the ‘circle and shoot’ Boss battles I mentioned), Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a worthy follow-up to Dead Rising and a good title to kick off their 2007 videogame season.

With Planet, the action is the driver, and that’s all that you need.

Nach einem Jahr habe ich mehr erwartet als ein Bundle mit allen Maps und ein paar zusätzliche Skins im Multiplayer. Lost Planet ist auf der PS3 grafisch und technisch einen Tick schlechter als damals auf der Xbox 360. Und das ist enttäuschend, denn das Spiel selbst bietet ja immer noch explosive Action vom Feinsten, geniale Bosskämpfe und Adrenalin pur - richtig gute Unterhaltung! Okay, dass die lethargische KI nicht auf ein forderndes Niveau gehievt wurde, kann man vielleicht noch verschmerzen. Aber leider kann Capcom den grafischen Schwung der hervorragenden PC-Umsetzung nicht auf Sonys Konsole übertragen: Die stärkere Kantenbildung, das sporadische Flimmern, die alles in grelles Licht tauchenden Überblendungen und die heute etwas verwaschen wirkenden Texturen dämpfen die Euphorie im Eis.

This is a great addition to the Playstation 3 library, but it certainly isn't anything more than what the 360 version offered early last year. That's not a bad thing, Lost Planet is a positive explosion of action and epic-scale conflicts. A year later, the visuals looks phenomenal and the unique premise is still unlike anything else out there. Admittedly, the moment-to-moment gameplay of Lost Planet can be a little slow and unexciting, but the big encounters make it all worthwhile.

En solo, Lost Planet a ses mauvais côtés, une tendance à devenir inutilement illisible et hardcore, et ses vilaines lacunes formelles : manque de travail sur le level-design, IA défaillante, pas de liant scénaristique. Cette oeuvre étrange, ce vrai jeu de guerre, ne se réfléchit pas, et se contente de distribuer des sensations et du spectacle à l'état brut. Sa prise en main quasi parfaite, sa probante démonstration technique et la sauvagerie inouïe des Akrids lui permettent d'enchaîner à tour de bras des scènes inoubliables. Comme pour le dernier Devil May Cry, il arrive au joueur de s'y sentir tout petit. Et il y a le multi, propre, plus subtil et varié que le mode solo, l'expérience vaut le coup.

All of this rolls up into a really solid package with only a few glaring flaws, most of which lie in the controls. Some might be initially turned off by certain aspects of the game, such as the idea of constantly depleting energy, but most of it works really well with the style of gameplay Capcom has crafted. The story may be pretty forgettable, but it's also kind of nice to see cutscenes that don't feel the need to drop f-bombs tirelessly, as if that automatically makes a video game "mature." What we have here, folks, is yet another reason why it's oh so sweet to own a 360.

As an action game, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition delivers in spades – even if it can be finished in under 8 hours total playtime. Besides revisiting some really cool-looking environments, the only thing pushing you to replay the quick single-player game – I finished my first run through in under eight hours – are the various Achievements. Multiplayer is practically a separate game – I came across people at Level 60+ that hadn’t completed the third mission – but it affords many hours of action.

With a goal to make not just a great shooter game, but make one that retains a distinctive Japanese style, Lost Planet aimed high. Not just to make the game challenging, but to also make it easy enough for people to pick up and play; not just to make a mech game (which is what it started design as), but not make the mech elements so dominant that the game loses appeal outside of Japan. There are some stumbles here, no question, but Lost Planet is a unique vision, a mix of NES gameplay and cutting edge graphics, with some great multiplayer to boot. Pick it up to see what happens when one of the industry's biggest companies actually takes one of those "risks" we keep asking for.

Wer auf ausgefeilte Charaktere, eine gute Story und anspruchsvolles Gameplay steht, ist hier gänzlich falsch. Lost Planet ist ein Third-Person-Shooter der Marke Serious Sam und setzt auf pausenlose Ballerei und massenhaft Gegner. Was auf Dauer eintönig klingen mag, lockern die riesigen Akriden auf. Dank ihnen und des ständigen Effektfeuerwerks macht der Titel eine ganze Menge Spaß, der jedoch durch kleine Mängel getrügt wird.

Those who enjoy action packed third-person shooters and have a powerful PC that's kept up to date with the latest and greatest PC hardware will enjoy what Lost Planet: Extreme Condition has to offer. Those who have played the 360 shouldn't consider the game however as there is practically no differences and the game felt more at home on the 360. In fact I ended up using the 360 controller over the keyboard and mouse controls even though the keyboard and mouse controls work reasonably well. There are some rough edges here and there is plenty of evidence that the game was first and foremost a console title. Sure the support for DirectX 10 is nice but tutorial messages for a keyboard and mouse control scheme, support for saving the game at any point, and a menu system that didn't feel awkward should definitely have been included. Despite the aforementioned irritations, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is still an enjoyable game, if you have the hardware to run it that is.

Nach wie vor ist 'Lost Planet' ein auf kurze Sicht sehr unterhaltsames Actionspiel mit einigen Aha-Effekten und pompöser Inszenierung. Allerdings frage ich mich, was die Entwickler ein Jahr lang getrieben haben? Alte Fehler und Mängel sind in der PS3-Fassung immer noch zu finden und die Grafik hinkt stellenweise sogar der Xbox-360-Version hinterher. Ein paar neue Multiplayer-Karten sind zwar nett, aber insgesamt doch etwas dürftig. Wer auf leicht verdauliche Action steht, sollte mal einen Blick riskieren. Wer Langzeitspaß und Abwechslung sucht, wird woanders besser bedient.

Although it may seem that I have been nit-picking, 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 we 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.

Xbox 360The Video Game Critic
The main problem with the game is its wildly uneven difficulty. Some bosses are so relentlessly hard that you'll want to set the difficult to easy just to avoid the inevitable frustration. It doesn't help that the collision detection is spotty when facing some of these behemoths. And where's the split-screen action? Sorry, but if you want to play multi-player, you'll need to go on-line. Another issue is how you can only save after each mission. Call it frustrating, call it uneven, but you can't deny that Lost Planet is an exciting shooter. The non-stop action and sweeping musical score really got my blood pumping, and I couldn't wait to see what each new mission had in store.

Japonci majú určitú úchylku a to je približovať hry filmom. Toto predviedli aj v prípade Lost Planet, takmer dokonalé filmy (ako som už spomínal) udržujú príbeh pohromade, samotné misie však vo „filmovosti“ v ničom nezaostávajú. Problémom stále, ale ostáva krátkosť hry (na druhej strane je to možno čiastočný ústupok na zdôraznenie filmovému nádychu a boju so stereotypom), nič na tom nemení ani nemožnosť ukladať hru počas misie, LP obecne nie je ťažká, treba len dávať pozor čo sa deje okolo a trochu problémový multiplayer. Aby som to zhrnul – kto má slušnejší počítač, vzťah k akčným hrám (a nevadí mu trochu filmového nádychu), nemá averziu voči japoncom.... môže uvažovať nad tým, že do Lost Planet investuje tisícku. Len či to za tých pár hodín stojí....

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a third person shooter that comes from the Capcom. With that said, this game has nothing to do with zombies. The storyline transpires in a futuristic and arctic environment called EDN III. Humans are living peacefully until they are under attack by the Akrid. These Akrid are hostile creatures that want to completely annihilate mankind from existence. As a result, humankind attempts to retaliate because the Akrid possess thermal energy. Thermal energy is the life source that powers everything from electronics to machines, and it is essential for the survival of the population. Gamers are in control of a protagonist named Wayne that just happens to suffer from amnesia. He is a Vital Suit pilot, and is in charge of neutralizes the alien threat. The plot lacks any originality and can be downright convoluted.

Wenn's nach mir ginge, hätte man den verlorenen Planeten nicht wiederfinden müssen. Ja, Lost Planet sieht super aus. Ja, die Ballerei ist launig. Aber die Story ist so schlecht inszeniert, dass jedes Vorstadt-Kasperletheater (mit Prinzessin, Krokodil und Wachtmeister) mehr Spannung verbreitet; hätte man die doch gleich weggelassen! Ich bin gespannt, ob mich der jetzt noch fehlende Multiplayer-Modus demnächst für das Spiel begeistern kann.

In closing, even though the game may feel slightly repetitive, and the mouse lag and other minor cases of "consolitis" (performance on some systems) may annoy some gamers, the quality of the action itself and the sheer magnificence of some scenes, should prove a good enough reason to play this one. I for one am really glad I got the chance to enjoy both the action and the storyline (tacky at some instances, but endearing nonetheless).

I had high expectations for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition ever since Capcom graciously put the demo online, unfortunately Lost Planet didn't exactly turn out how I expected. Lost Planet isn't a bad game, but it's seems a few areas like the voice acting, game flow, and enemy A.I. really put a damper on the its overall potential. If you're looking for a fun ride to kill a few hours and maybe a few more online, Lost Planet can deliver. If you're looking for a deep, challenging, action game, you might be left in the cold. Even though I'm a little hard on Lost Planet, I still feel this could be a strong franchise for Capcom with a little re-tooling. What Lost Planet does right, it excels, even John Carpenter would be proud of the cold, desolate, setting Capcom has created. If you're looking for a buy, make sure you're an avid online gamer, and then you will find enough value in Capcom arctic shooter.

Nach Xbox 360 und PC ist jetzt also die Playstation 3 an der Reihe. Wer entscheidende Verbesserungen erwartet, erlebt eine Enttäuschung. Es gibt lediglich ein paar Karten und Figuren mehr, die Spielgrafik kommt sogar ein bisschen verwaschener rüber als in den bekannten Versionen. Dennoch bereitet das Spiel eine Menge Spaß, weil es von Anfang an kracht wie Hölle. Die Kämpfe sind echte Herausforderungen, die Möglichkeit, einen Vital Suit anzulegen, sorgt für Abwechslung. Da macht es nichts, dass es sich zweifelsohne um einen geradlinigen Shooter handelt, zumal die aufwendigen Zwischensequenzen für stimmungsvolle Atmosphäre sorgen. So etwas ist und bleibt „gut“, auch wenn mehr drin gewesen wäre.

Al met al is de game best redelijk, de single-player speelt best leuk ware het niet dat de normale vijanden absoluut geen uitdaging zijn. De game ziet er goed uit en klinkt geweldig, maar is dan weer erg zwaar voor je systeem.

Die Sommerzeit ist genau die richtige Phase des Jahres, um all die neuesten Games die gerade am Markt erschienen sind durchzuspielen und sich einige Stunden am Tag im Onlinemodus eines Spieles aufzuhalten, um sich mit anderen Spielern weltweit zu messen. Lost Planet ist für diesen Zweck leider nicht geeignet, da im Moment zahlreiche Bugs den Spielspaß in Multiplayerpartien verderben, während im Singleplayer eine einfach gestricke KI auf einen wartet. Auch die Tatsache, dass Lost Planet selbst bei diversen High-End-PCs Probleme mit der Performance hat stellt einen bitteren Nachgeschmack dar. Actionfans sollten daher lieber zu anderen PC-Titeln oder zur recht einwandfreien Xbox 360-Version dieses Spiels greifen, denn zum gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt kann man mit Lost Planet für PC sicherlich nicht seine wahre Freude haben. Bleibt nur die Hoffnung auf bald kommende Patches.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition exhibits the extreme condition of being an average port to the PS3. Sure, Capcom has added some new online bonuses including new character skins and maps, but the graphical downgrade and loss of achievements is brain freezing. If you have the luxury of picking the Xbox 360 of Lost Planet, that is the way to go. If you’ve only have a PS3 is still worth a look. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a fun and challenging shooter that will give you another climate to run around and gun besides Drake’s jungles. I’m a little disappointed in Lost Planet’s translation; however it’s still a solid game even if it’s bugged up by more than Akrids.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is not a bad title, and it's worth a look because its gameplay captures both the best aspects of an arcade game and the gritty action of a modern shooter. The port itself just seems to be incomplete, with the Xbox 360-centric prompts, reward tokens (previously used for 360 achievements) that now have no purpose whatsoever, and sluggish performance; if they are fixed in a future patch, the title is easily a recommendable one. For now, gamers should tread carefully and hope for a patch to address the issues, as the relatively low degree of polish and care on any level just doesn't quite match what one expects from a $40 PC title, much less one that bears the Capcom name.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition made for a quite enjoyable single player experience, thanks to some massive enemies and outrageous firefights with not only Akrid, but snow pirates as well. The entertaining multiplayer while it does have its quirks is a very entertaining time if you can get into a good room with people who choose not to spawn camp and play as a team. The game does feature four levels of difficulty, and while I played on the “normal” setting, there was a hard and once the game was completed an extreme difficulty was unlocked. Players who choose to take on extreme have a very tough time ahead of them, but seeing as the game is quite entertaining I am sure that some will head back for more. The duration of the game and the disappointing finale does knock the title down a couple grades, but the online aspect is quite enjoyable and keeps the game as a very solid recommendation.

Lost Planet provides the PlayStation 3 with a third-person shooter that is unique and quirky, but not necessarily strong enough to warrant a purchase for most gamers. While the combat elements in Lost Planet contain pockets of genuine fun, these moments are tainted by unfortunate design choices that were never ironed out from the original version. With plenty of better polished shooters already on the market, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition fails to make another splash on a marketplace that once welcomed it with open arms.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition to dość przyzwoita gra akcji/TPP. Trzeba jednak wziąć poprawkę na to, że mamy do czynienia z konwersją z Xboksa 360. Gdy będziemy oceniać grę pod tym kątem i przyrównywać ją do oryginału, powinniśmy od oceny końcowej odjąć ze dwa oczka. A tak, pomijając tytuł recenzowanej produkcji, możemy śmiało powiedzieć, że jest ona całkiem przyzwoicie wykonana i należy ją polecić wszystkim fanom gatunku. Ale z pewnością nie należy jej kłaść na biurko nikomu, kto pod niebiosa wychwala pierwowzór. Może to się dla niego (i dla nas) źle skończyć. Miejmy tylko nadzieję, że nie skończy się dla Capcomu, który do wersji na PlayStation 3 nieco bardziej się przyłoży.

In more ways than one, this release is a learning experience. Capcom of Japan is learning from the West in their game design, and learning how to do a PC port the right way. It's clear that this is alien territory for them, and they have missed some opportunities along the way. Still, they have created an enjoyable game and a port that satisfies, even if it isn't as grand as it could have been.

It's a testament to strong game design that even with numerous technical and porting issues, Lost Planet's single-player campaign makes it still worth taking a look. But as visually dazzling as it is, the PC version can't quite reach the heights of its console counterpart, thanks to inexplicable design decisions and broken online play. It's too bad these issues weren't ironed out prior to release, but if you can look past them, you're bound to get a lot of enjoyment from shooting down colossal creepy-crawlies.

Nogmaals, Lost Planet is op geen enkele manier een slechte game. Het spel heeft echter geen hoger cijfer gekregen, omdat je constant het gevoel hebt dat er meer in had kunnen zitten. De korte singleplayer, de gaten in het verhaal, de weinig verslavende multiplayer, het missen van een coöp mode en off-line multiplayer. Die punten weggelaten, is Lost Planet een heerlijk en vermakelijk actiespel en wij zien nu al uit naar een eventueel vervolg.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition feels like it had the potential to be a pared-down shooter classic, but never quite manages to make the core combat exciting, varied or challenging enough to elevate it to the lofty realms that early showings suggested it would reach. Nevertheless, with a glorious setting, some memorable boss encounters and some staggering visuals to enjoy, Lost Planet has enough going for it to recommend checking out for those of you needing a lift in the dismal January wasteland.

All in all, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition feels like a hardened old-skool title wrapped up in some lavish next-gen visuals. Annoyances with the save system, checkpoints and difficulty spikes are likely to mar the enjoyment for a fair few players, but there's still no question that Lost Planet should be experienced. Online multiplayer is also an option once you finish the campaign, and a recent patch suggests that Capcom isn't going to leave problems untouched for months. A fine addition to the Xbox 360 library and hopefully the start of another successful Capcom franchise.

Lost Planet PC is far from a bad game, but it is clearly a console port and while some attempt has been made to take advantage of the PC platform, these are mostly technical in nature so the impression I get is that more attention was given to making this a great tech demo than a great PC game, perhaps as a quick way to cash in on eager hardcore gamers looking to take advantage of their new and expensive DX10 hardware, as LP is one of the very few DX10 PC games out right now. This isn't a terrible thing, but make no mistake - if you can't stand console ports, you won't be able to stand Lost Planet PC. If that is something you don't overly care about, some decent action gameplay can definitely be had here, so I recommend it to those who didn't get a chance to play it on the 360 and don't mind playing a rather linear console native game on their PC.

For a while, Lost Planet seems like a great fit for lovers of arcade-style action games. Taking on a gigantic snow worm -- think Dune's sand worms -- is one of this gen's greatest "Oh s***" moments so far. But the game gets away from these roots far too soon and often, delving into middling mech territory with brain-dead humans broken up by rote boss battles and a forgettable story. Sleek graphics and a fast start can't mask what's an entertaining but ultimately disposable diversion.

Von wegen kalt - auf diesem verlorenen Eisplaneten geht es heiß her. Die einzelnen Spielstufen sind zwar nicht übermäßig umfangreich, doch jeder Meter im Schnee ist hart umkämpft. Die Kämpfe sind spannend inszeniert und die riesigen Akriden-Insekten beeindrucken mit fantasievollen Formen und ihrer schieren Größe. Anfänger sollten den einfachsten Schwierigkeitsgrad wählen, weil bereits die Stufe "Normal" eine enorme Herausforderung darstellt. Grafisch ist das Spiel top und Besitzer eines flotten Vista-Rechners mit Direct-X 10 sehen sogar eine geschönte Version des Spiels.

Lost Planet is a welcome departure from Capcom's previous next-gen titles and offers some truly epic-feeling boss battles against some large, nasty looking creatures. The V-suits, grappling cable, and "thermal energy" mechanic, where you need to maintain your armor and life by capturing the enemy's "heat," are interesting twists to the traditional action title. Fans of first-person shooters will likely find issues with the game's controls and slower pacing, and the PS3 game is not a smooth port of the Xbox 360 version. Yet for the price and amount of bang for the buck, Lost Planet: Extreme Edition on PS3 is certainly worth warming up to.

This story, theme and gameplay of Lost Planet basically boil down to "Starship Troopers" + Armored Core – Fun = Lost Planet. I had high hopes for it, looked forward to it, and ended up disappointed by it. With the year between the original release and now, the devs could have cleaned up some of the missteps or beefed up the visuals. What we got instead is a game that requires a patch installation before you can proceed, and comes with a reduced MSRP of $40 to compensate for its later debut on the Sony console. If you're in the market for a so-so shooter with some crazy (if frustrating) big boss battles and generic weapons, and you, haven't tried this anywhere else by now, give it a rent. You may dig it. I, on the other hand, will be reclaiming my hard drive space ASAP.

If you played Lost Planet for the 360 then there frankly isn't any reason to spend time with the PlayStation 3 version. The original release stands out as the better version. With that being said if you're new to the game then by all means give this one a rental as it's definitely a fun shooter. There are many flaws here and the multiplayer component isn't as strong as one might hope but there are definitely enough aliens to kill to satisfy a weekend.

When we reviewed the 360 version of Lost Planet a year ago, we liked it and gave it good marks. Since then, multiplayer options have gotten better, graphics technology has moved on. Releasing a shoddy PS3 port a year late isn't taking a risk; it's taking advantage. We honestly don't think that it was worth a year's wait to get a Mega Man costume, a Dead Rising costume, and massive frame-rate issues. That means there's no real reason to recommend this Lost Planet over last year's releases, so don't feel bad about leaving it out in the cold.

Mais si les développeurs japonais maîtrisent effectivement la partie technique, le gameplay, victime de l'I.A. faiblarde et de mécanismes éculés peine à tenir la route bien mal définie par une narration aléatoire.

La note est assassine comparée à la version 360, puisque le jeu en lui-même mérite clairement mieux. Mais on justifiera cette saignée par un coup de gueule unanime de la rédaction envers Capcom, qui persiste à nous servir des portages PC faits à la truelle, sans véritable respect pour le travail originel, et encore moins pour les joueurs. Pourtant, Lost Planet reste un titre d'exception, malgré ses mauvais côté en solo, une tendance à devenir inutilement illisible et hardcore, et ses vilaines lacunes formelles : manque de travail sur le level design, IA défaillante, pas de liant scénaristique. Cette oeuvre étrange se contente de distribuer des sensations et du spectacle à l'état brut. Sa prise en main exemplaire, (une fois qu'on aura appris à gérer les reliquats ergonomiques de la 360), sa probante démonstration technique et la sauvagerie inouïe des Akrids lui permettent d'enchaîner à tour de bras des scènes inoubliables.

Lost Planet voor de PC lijkt sterk op de Xbox 360-versie, met enkele verschillen. De PC-versie van het spel is grafisch duidelijk superieur aan de Xbox 360-versie, maar je zult er wel een dik systeem voor in huis moeten hebben. Interesseren bloedmooie beelden je niet en heb je een Xbox 360 in huis, dan is het misschien beter om Lost Planet voor je console in huis te halen. Op de PC voelt de besturing namelijk wat stroef aan voor een shooter. Daarbij heeft Capcom zich de moeite gespaard om enkele vervelende bugs uit het spel te filteren. Bovendien is het nog niet zeker of er überhaupt wel iemand online te vinden zal zijn om Lost Planet in multiplayer te spelen. Vandaar dat we de PC-versie van Lost Planet een lagere score geven dan we een half jaar geleden deden.

If Lost Planet was a budget title, we'd have an easier time recommending it. The main campaign is short, multiplayer matches are nowhere to be found, and you'll need a lot of computing muscle if you want to run it with a decent level of detail. You'll also need to install Steam to play the game and there is no Live for Windows support, which means no Achievements or the ability to play against your Xbox 360 buddies online. On the plus side, the graphics do look great, and there are some good moments in the short single-player campaign. Unfortunately, these few pluses aren't enough to raise Lost Planet from decent to great, and nowadays, just being "decent" isn't good enough.

That isn’t to say the game is completely absent of fun. At times the visual appearance of Lost Planet will leave you open jawed and is certainly a demonstration of how great games can look on the new generation of consoles. There are also certain amounts of fun to be had from running around killing millions of things. This fun, however, is of the limited variety and will probably only last a short while. Stamping on a cockroach is great, stamp on a million and you get a sore foot – that just about sums up Lost Planet.

You really need to balance the clear-cut pros and cons of the PS3 version of Lost Planet -- in some ways it's superior, and it others it's not. It's cheaper, it has all the bells and whistles of its counterparts, and it has extra playable characters that the 360 version will never see. But this comes at the expense of clearly crappier-than-360 visuals and controls. The game redeems these visual issues on the strength of its multiplayer action, which -- much like Call of Duty 4 and its ilk -- rewards repeated play with unlockable skins, ranks, character models, and more. Online, it's fast, fun, addictive, and balanced, unlike the offline story mode and its overly cheesy boss fights (in which Vital Suit-equipped enemies never seem to move as slowly and as sluggishly as you). Whether the sum total of all this game's disparate parts and problems equals a purchase is up to you.

If you're looking for a new console-style action game on PC, Resident Evil 4 is the better option. Sure it may have a dated look and require a controller, but its gameplay is far more satisfying than Capcom's Lost Planet. This title is more of an arcade game, though, which could excuse its transparent mechanics to a degree. But for an arcade game to succeed, it really needs tight, fluid methods for moving around, something Lost Planet's often cantankerous controls, even though they're better on PC, can only daydream about. What you get here caters to the mindless action fan - huge enemies, hulking weapons, monstrous explosions, and flashy visuals. Strip that away and there isn't much left. Aside from a few "wow" moments during boss battles and some decent multiplayer modes (when they're working), the gameplay is, for the most part, shallow and short on long-term appeal, and the characters and narrative are as enjoyable as waiting for the cable guy.

Lost Planet has all of the earmarks of a game that was rushed out before it was ready. Console control diagrams with no mention of PC equivalents, a broken multiplayer scheme that requires some gamers to fiddle with firewall ports to successfully connect to matches, incomplete documentation and an abominable save-game system turn an otherwise exciting and fairly deep offering into far too much work for the gamer. Perhaps some of Lost Planet’s shortcomings will be fixed in a patch or two, but for now it remains a considerable disappointment.
