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."

Looking above, you can see that Lost Planet 2 does get a nice bump with the overclock bringing our 1920 x 1200 numbers out of the 40 FPS range and into the 50 FPS area. We see an extra 3 FPS at 1680 x 1050, which is nice, as we move from an average of 52 FPS to 55 FPS.

 

We would've really liked a little more, though. As we draw closer to the 60 FPS number, though, we can get away with a small detail drop to gain that extra 5 FPS we want and need for smooth gameplay.
