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 numbers look good with playable numbers seen at all resolutions. At the higher resolutions, you can also see that we're ahead of the R9 290X 4GB when it's running in Quiet mode, but when in Uber mode, it is behind like you'd think, considering it's a more expensive card.


Against the NVIDIA offerings, the 290 sits around the same level as the GTX 770 2GB in this instance. NVIDIA has always been quiet superior at Tessellation and that's one of the main reason we see their offerings do so well under Lost Planet 2.
