Lost Planet 2 is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Capcom. The game is the sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition which is also made by Capcom, taking place ten years after the events of the first game, on the same fictional planet. The story takes place back on E.D.N. III 10 years after the events of the first game. The snow has melted to reveal jungles and more tropical areas that have taken the place of more frozen regions. The plot begins with Mercenaries fighting against Jungle Pirates. After destroying a mine, the Mercenaries continue on to evacuate the area, in which a Category-G Akrid appears and attacks them. After being rescued, they find out their evacuation point (Where the Category-G appeared) was a set-up and no pick up team awaited them. The last words imply possible DLC additions to the game, "There's nothing to be gained by wiping out snow pirates... unless you had some kind of grudge."




Lost Planet 2 is extremely intensive and we see a lot of cards struggle to get playable FPS. While 1680 x 1050 isn't an issue we do see that the card struggles a little at 1920 x 1200. The good news is thanks to the overclock we're a nice chunk closer to the average we want over the lower clocked GTX 560 Ti, so getting that couple of extra FPS shouldn't be too difficult by dropping detail just slightly.
