    Critics are not you.

    Posted .

    So I bought this game yesterday. And IGN is extremely exaggerating. The one main thing I can find a an issue with control wise is simply the 180 degree turn. It works about 75% of the time. Other then that the flying is fine... its not spectacular, but it fine. The lock on system... works about 99% of the time or more for me. Maybe the people at IGN were trying to lock on from like a mile away, where at that point, any enemy object on your screen is a potential lock point. Seriously, it works fine. The story is pretty good, the acting and music are fantastic. I am about 3/4 of the way through the game and I have enjoyed it alot actually. The visuals are breath taking and sound is delivered in 7.1 DD or downscaled 5.1 DD for most systems. If I had to grade it on what I have played so far... (1 to 10 scale) Graphics: 10 Story: 9 Gameplay: 7 Music: 10 Replay: 7 Overall: 7.5 - 8.0 roughly (not AVG) The game is good... much better then a 4.9/10 or 5.1/10 given to it by so called "Game Experts". If you have a PS3, buy it or rent it, I am glad I did. Seriously, there are games that have had much worse control issues then this game.

    L A I R

    Ok...LAIR isn't the best game out there but it is a pretty decent one. Graphics are really nice, believe me, music is outstanding, it's probably the best feature of the game besides Dragons!! And Cinematics look really cool and the voice acting is pretty good as well. Now...you have no choice on the controls...it's either using the SIXAXIS or...using it....and that gives the game an add on in difficulty, si it's gonna be quite hard to be flying on your dragon with the SIXAXIS. People say there's gonna be an update for the game so that you can get the option of changing your control configuration to Analog...but we'll have to wait and see to believe.... Overall, nice game, entertaining and fun, but it may get boring sometimes cause there are just too many cut scenes during gameplay, but other than that, if you are willing to give the SIXAXIS a shot, you'll find this game quite good.

    Stick With IT

    Posted .

    This is a game that at first I thought was going to be a complete dud. I purchased this when it was released and found the six access controls to be difficult to master. After putting the game away for almost a year, I tried it again and found that with a little effort the game controls become very natural and you can control the dragon as if you were holding the reigns in your hands. If you think about it this way, it is much easier to visualize and thus easier to control. In the end, I think this game is worth purchasing if you have an interest in the genre and have played other games by Factor 5, such as the Rogue Squadron series on the Nintendo platforms.

    Lair

    Posted .

    I purchased this game three days ago after reading all the negative commentary about the new control style this game utilizes. I have to say the gameplay is a bit different using the SIXAXCIS controls but once you get used to them it will be second nature and it DOES NOT EFFECT THE OVERALL GAMEPLAY. I think these comments were written by disgruntal 360 owners or gaming magazines that werent paid off enough to promote the hype...Basically if you can pass all the tutorials in the begining of the game you will be strong enough to beat the game. You just need to anticipate a little more than most typical flying games i.e. start turning before you run into the wall... Overall the graphics are the best I have seen in a consol system with minimal terrian flicker and lag. The cut scenes are movie quality with a great storyline. Being a hardcore gamer I beat the this game with a silver/bronze on every level in a day 14hours but this is expected from a consol of this type...The trick now for me atleast would be to unlock all those secret dragons and get the gold medals which probably will take a little longer...My two cents buy the game probably a little short but the genera/cinematics/graphics make up for it... 4.5/5

    Worth a rent

    Posted .

    I agree with a previous review that there is way to many cut scenes, I would be getting into one of the battles and then comes another cutscene. The cutscenes before and after the actual mission look absolutely amazing though. Some people say that the missions are repetative, which they kind of are, but they do keep you interested in what is going on. Controls have also been debated about and once you get the hang of it, they arent so bad (especially with the help of the new firmware update, 1.92). All in all, it was a great idea but didnt completely impress or satisfy me the way I thought it would. Worth the rent though.

    Either Or...

    Posted .

    This is a game that you will either love or hate entirely. Personally, I thought this was an awesome game. The only issue I have with it was that it never did a 180 degree turn when I wanted it to (so I had to fly in a circle haha). Other than that, I rather enjoyed it and loved the story plot. The thing I don't understand is why are people complaining that you can only fly and nothing else-the game was meant to just fly on a dragon that's what you are critiquing. If you don't like to play flying games, then you definitely won't like this game so don't even bother buying it.

    Fun Game

    Posted .

    This is a cool game with great graphics and and awesome dragons to fly. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that you had to use six-axis controll for the dragon. It's very difficult to get used to. Tendency to overcorrect with turning etc. Not very accurate. But as I write this review, I believe they have an upgrade for analog use that you can download at the playstation store for a small fee. I haven't played the game in a long time due to the fact you had to use the six-axis controller. But I will now look into downloading the patch for analog controll.

    really horrible game

    Posted .

    this is i think the most horrible game you could ever get form the ps3. first, all you could do is fly everywhere which gets pretty dull. you could go to the ground and eat some guys, but its pretty useless. sixaxis is really horrble and bad ideas. but graphic s are really cool, but thats all i have to say that's good. i wish the'yd at least make it so you could get off the dragon and fight! levels are pretty much no different than the others and you always have to fight dragons which get boring. this is the #1 one game that you never want to get.

    Kind of Repetitive

    Posted .

    This is really quite a good game, but it has its flaws. First of all, it does get a bit repetitive some of the time. And also, the six-axes is not as good (to me at-least, others like it) as I could have hoped. But aside from those, the game is really quite fun and I would definatly recomend it for a person who really likes games with dragons and a "unique" fighting style such as is present in Lair. In conclusion, you should get this game, but don't expect it to be perfect. Also, it was kind of easy.

    one of the better PS3 titles yet

    Posted .

    Great graphics, great sound, solid story line, solid game. The controls of this game take time to become accustomed too, so be patient. I found myself trying to use the analog stick/s several times. I would recommend not only playing through all of the training ground options, but also replaying one or two of the first few mission several times (training and battle missions differ greatly). Once you get the feel for the Sixaxis the game is increasingly enjoyable.

    Cool Game

    Posted .

    I like the game its something different and fresh; however, the controls are pretty difficult, yet it takes some practice of getting use to. The only con about the game is when locking on to an enemy and its usually uncontrollable because it doesn't lock on the enemy you wish to attack. Other than saying that, the graphics are realistic and awesome, great background music, very good audio and storyline. Its one of those great games that i would recommend.

    Bad Rap

    Posted .

    This game got a bad rap from the get go.....Game Spot shot it down right out the gate. I found it a good game Stunning graphics and sound. The sixaxus was a bit slow to respond but Is going to be the future of gaming. Game Spot is Pro Xbox and sixaxus is something it doesn't have. For a first go at it the game was good and follows a story line well. I found it challenging and fun so it well worth the bucks.

    All hype, no game

    Posted .

    This supposed talk about the game handling better since the firmware update on the PS3 doesn't change the fact that the game has VERY poor controls. Sony has stated that the game was designed for the "casual" gamer... shaking the controller for 2 minutes straight is not casual, and it's not a game at that point. Among my family, none of us (mother, two brothers and a sister) were able to consistently get the dragon to speed up without suddenly turning 180 degrees the wrong way... exactly what we DIDN'T want to do. That game is pretty, and honestly does a good job with the storyline, for the type of game that it is. However, there is no excuse for shipping a broken game. They shouldn't have to make a patch for the game (and have that patch come out a week later) for it to work better; honestly, we still can't tell the difference between before the firmware update and after the firmware update: the game still controlls horribly. Bottom line: pretty game that is frustrating to play, if you want your controller actions to actually affect what's happening on the screen.

    Posted .

    this was one of the most awesome game i have everplayed. the creators really used their imagination, from dragons to the different kinds of animals in the game. i admit, it was hard to get used to it at first bu after awhile it was so addicting. it was so exciting playing it. i couldn't wait until i got off work to play Lair. i will diffinitly recommed this game to everyone!!!

    not as bad as reviewers make it out to be

    Posted .

    this should not be the first ps3 game you should buy but if you have a few others and have any experience with the sixaxis controls you should be just fine with this game. if your no good at the motion controls, rent it or skip it, but i actually liked using the sixaxis instead of the analog stick... it was refreshing. i also have a wii so i may have been used to it already.

    Good for me.

    Posted .

    I am not very good at this game but I love it! I do admit that the controls take quite a bit of time and effort to get used to but I find that is what makes the fun of playing it better. Who wants a game that you can master in a few hours then get bored with it. I cannot get enough of this game. I immerse myself into it and forget my troubles. BUY THIS GAME!!!

    Flying High

    Posted .

    People say that Lair is a bad game, it's not. Sure, the all motion sensitive controls are pretty hard, but after a couple hours, you get used to it, and it is a great game. The graphics at times are like real-life, although the repetative go do that, go do this, sort of gets boring. Overall, I believe that this game should get some appreciation.

    A high-quality game

    Posted .

    This is one of the best games I've played on any console! The graphics are astounding even on a standard defenition TV, the music is worthy of being played in the world's best symphony halls and the story is deep and compelling (and draws parallels to Europe during the Black Plauge). Gameplay is fast and intense. You quickly lose track of time as you soar over amazingly detailed battlefields and the action does not let up. The use of the SIXAXIS controller does present a learning curve. But after a few minutes of playing I found the control setup made perfect sense and in a short while becomes intuitive. I am not using the 1.92 system, but after a few minutes of gameplay I was able to make my dragon do what I wanted when I wanted with few if any problems. Great graphics, lots of action, outstanding music, and an innovative control set-up. A brilliant game!

    Good Game

    Posted .

    Good game, very original. I enjoyed playing it very much. The only drawback is that the dragon is controlled by the motion of your controller. This can be awkward at times. And if you turn the controller too far one way or the other the dragon stops turning. But overall its a very good game.

    Double Edged Sword

    Posted .

    Overall I think it's an amazing game to play and the graphics are on point. The controls are difficult to get used to at first, but gets easier as the game progresses. I would not recommend this game for a young kid due to the graphic nature of the game and the confusing controls.
