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."

For starters we're again seeing some fantastic scaling from the HD 6850 CF setup. Compared to the GTX 460 SLI setup performance does lag behind a little, especially at the lower resolution. It's interesting that we see while the gap at 1920 x 1200 is 11 FPS in favor off the GTX 460 SLI setup, at 2560 x 1600 only 1 FPS separates the two setups.
