Console gamers spent most of their winter bundled up and armed to the teeth, raining heavy weapons down upon endless streams of giant bugs. Their home planet, an icy rock unfit for any living thing, made the perfect battleground both in the game and in reality - winter is the least-forgiving season for most of the country, after all. But now in bright, sunny June, the idea of traversing a snowy plain ravaged by a building-sized worm might actually come as a welcome reprieve from the sweltering heat. To this end, we present our extensive Lost Planet coverage from the Xbox 360 version, plus a review of the brand-spankin' new PC version.
Review, walkthrough, token guide, movies, multiplayer impressions, it's all here. Just choose your path below.
Lost Planet review (PC)
It's a strange feat to play through the PC version of Xbox 360 mega-hit Lost Planet and still feel as exhilarated by its immense boss battles and explosive gameplay as we did the first time we turned it on six months ago.
Lost Planet review (360)
Trapped on an isolated planet, it's you against an endless army of giant bugs and ruthless snow pirates. Your only memories are of loss and violence, something about betrayal and a towering knowledge of rocket-launching robotic suits. Basically, you're well-equipped to blast the living hell out of everything you see.
