Why I'm not excited for Lost Planet 2

     When the first footage of the original Lost Planet came out the thought that was going through my head was "This is the next gen game I've been waiting for". The E3 demo gave me a very promising feeling and the multilayer demo that followed after made me even more excited. Then the game released and I didn't have any money to get it at the time and other games I was excited about were coming out too so I waited to rent it at Gamefly. When I finally did get around to playing it I basically had it for at least two days before sending it back. I realize now after playing the multiplayer demo for Lost Planet 2 why I didn't  finish the last game, it doesn't feel Western. What I'm saying is all of the caned animations that are in Lost Planet don't feel good to me for a shooter, everything else is fine. You see when I'm shooting someone in Lost Planet it feels like it takes to many bullets kill someone or I'm just not hitting my adversary as much as I think I am and thats is my problem. I'm not saying its bad I just prefer the feel of a Gears of War as opposed to this.

Fair enough, I personally loved the first Lost Planet, but have yet to give the sequel a shot.

Yeah I really don't like how Lost Planet feels...
 
I can't imagine playing that game to win an objective with those controls. Don't get me wrong, I love me some animations. I do like my characters having weight to them, but then that means there should be weight to everything. Having a dude lug around and then fire a pea shooter feels really wrong.
 
Hopefully they tone it down and get it right next time.

someone just close this thread. I'm surprised someone found a 1 post thread that was over a year old in the first place to be honest.

I like how the dude complained about it taking too many bullets to kill enemies and then says he prefers Gears of War, hahahahaha.  Necro bump!

Have you played Gears multiplayer? It doesn't take that much. 
 
I don't think he was implying he'd much rather have a one shot one kill system from like CoD...

@Doctorchimp: I think he's talking about singleplayer though, we have to find this dude and clear things up!

Well he was talking about the multiplayer demo getting him psyched and how he was shooting "someone" not soldiers or monsters...
 
Who the fuck knows, it's lost in time.

@Doctorchimp:  The MP demo is co-op, I wasn't trying to knock Gears either way, but I'm glad we could find an excuse to keep bumping this stupid thread =D

NONE OF YOU ARE HELPING.

Please don't bump extremely old threads, especially if you have nothing to add to the conversation. Thanks!
