Teeth-rattling explosions. Bullet-belching robot suits. Giant monster-lizards that literally pass you through their ass and crap you onto the battlefield. If there’s one idea Capcom wants to convey about Lost Planet 2, it’s “more” – more towering bugs, more bosses, more players, more stuff to do.

As we flung a grenade into the source of the enraged beetle-beasts, it erupted in an orchestra of brilliant flames, deafening thunder and charred insect limbs. We paused to enjoy the slight break in tension that seemed as thick
By now, you've had over two weeks to sample the multiplayer action in next year's icy shooter Lost Planet. If not, what are you waiting for? The 16-player demo is available for free over Xbox Live right now and you certainly can't say we didn't tell you about it.
