    I think im probably one of the few people who thought Lost Planet was brilliant. The engine was really advanced and still pushes modern day cards at high resolution, especially with the DX10 features like FUR. I am not so excited about the Xbox 360 version of this followup however.

    I have the game on the PC, but I have't had much time with it. It's cool, but I never liked the "time running out" part.
    I wonder if this sequel has something like that or not.

    yeah the time factor was weird, although to be honest I think it only ran out on me a few times. I played the game for a few months when it was initially released. I still really rate the engine, so many features in it.

    I liked the game as well. Which I know isn't what most people feel, but the whole thing just appealed to me when it came out. Hopefully the PC version is as polished as the first. At 2560x1600 the engine still is a challenge for cards like the 4890. Needs a 295GTX to get AA playable at that res.
