I picked this up the other day, and as impressed as I am with the look of the game, it definitely has a lot left to be desired when it comes to the story, and several elements of gameplay itself.

1. Cannot look up. Really friggin annoying, especially when fighting fying creatures, and when you are in caves.

2. As cool as it is when a game makes the physics as realistic as possible, it gets really old when you keep falling over at inopportune times. It seems to take an eternity to get up, and a lot of the time it is impossible to move until whatever Akrid asshole is done pwning your ass. Looks cool, but gets old fast.

3. The reticle moves sooooo sllllooooowwwwwly.......

But there is a plus to it.. It looks incredible, and for the most part it is really fun to play. Just do not expect to get any real kick out of the story, it is meanering, and the dialogue is straight up Uwe Boll bad. With often the tone of the conversation changing midsentence, with laughable results.

Also, the badass commercial that plays for LP on TV is a lot better looking than what splases across the screen in real gameplay. Not that LP looks bad at all, but the commercial as just a bit more SO! to it.

My copy of Lost Planet stopped working for some reason. I hated the game with a passion anyway. Dead Rising is a much better Capcom title.

I used to have the unreadable disc problem on my 360, the ways to stop seem to be simple

A) have the 360 horizontal.
B) Never turn the machine off with the game disc in the machine, always take it out.

I've never had the unreadable problem since. I played the Lost Planet demo and got bored with it.
