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. It takes place ten years after the events of the first game on the same fictional planet. 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, after 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 tends to favor NVIDIA cards, and you can see the GTX 770 2GB manages to come out ahead at all resolutions.


While both the GTX 770 2GB and XFX R9 280X Double D Black Edition OC offer playable FPS across the board, we can't deny that we would prefer the 80 FPS average offered by the GTX 770 2GB at 2560 x 1600 over the 70 FPS average that the XFX R9 280X Double D Black Edition OC gives us.
