First off, this game uses the sixaxis, so if you're not a fan of moving your arms don't play this game. Lair is in my opinion a good game, that being said, I was also incredibly frustrated at points with the controls. These controls can be easy, but require a certain amount of patience to use and master properly. Locking on is also difficult and you will often be turning yourself around to make another pass on an enemy catapult, rhino, etc and have issues locking back onto the target you were just breathing fire on. Some of the mission objectives are also difficult to figure out at times, and there is difficulty finding the target objectives at points. On the bright side, the graphics are stunning and nothing beats a dragon on dragon fight! This game is the first ps3 title to play over remote play on your psp (warning: you lose some of the control functions), and overall was enjoyable for me once I got past learning the controls.
Well ive played this game for 2 hours allready and until now the game has been pretty good, the graphics are excelent, overall i think the game is pretty good except the controls are hard to get use to since you are using the sixaxis controls. Specially for me because if i get frustrated i swing the control around but after you play for a while u get use to it. Pretty much this is a good game, i wouldnt say its for everyone specially for people that have a hard time with controls. I thnk you should rent if first before buying it than see what u think about it.
When I first read about L-A-I-R I was at first ready to spend all my money on a PS3 to get this. Then the reviews came in telling how the game was lacking in content and not actually that good. I was skeptical to say the least.
When I booted the game up I was instantly trying to figure out the controls. This portion of the game would be rated as a 2 because while the tutorial was alright for flying, it gave nothing in the way of the other controls of your Dragon. If controls are your thing and you need them to be solely analog stick this and that, this game isn't for you. If you like to learn new ways to play games then this is right up your alley.
Once the controls were mastered this game went from 2 - 8 in no time. The epic scale of this game really makes the difference in playing. I wont say it's a system seller, but it is right up there close. I think the reviews based the game solely on it's controls and not enough on its game play or epic scale.
