User reviews for Lair
6.9 / 10Combined Score
Hard to know where to go next and the arrow that's meant to show you doesn't tell you much.
Glitchy in some parts but just some parts and a bit rare to find anyway.
Locking on is screwy.
When I read some reviews on this game saying stuff like "this game was hyped up so well but it truely sucks nads", I was annoyed. It looked like a very good game from the screenshots and gameplay vids! I even watched reviews on this game and all they do is bitch about the controls! WHAT!? They're usually saying "oh the graphics, gameplay and such are good but the controls F'IN SUCK!!" Get out! I read that the controls were an experimentation of what the six axxis control can truely do, and I'm thinking "I guess they got a point...". Eventually, I got my hands on a PS3 and this game, played it for a cou...
-sometimes a bit confusing
To begin with, we'll cut straight to gameplay.
You're started off with mission selection, which allows you to horizontally control the dragon to your heart's content until you select a mission.
First mission starts with a quick flight tutorial before cutting to the first mission. You're presented with the basic mechanics of controlling the dragon; turning, up and down, boost and 180, and basic firebreath attacks. You are required to fly through a line-up of rings before you go to mission 1.
This is the first time you realize that this game in no way is unresponsive. In fact, most might realize that the game is actually almost too responsive. Once you get into it, controlling the dragon is second nature.
Fire breathing is easy; pressing square gets you a firebal...

-Some slight glitches
-Confusing objectives at times
-First 2-3 missions are blah
-Only takes about 15 or so hours to beat the first time through
Alright, so this game has gotten some REALLY poor reviews, and I basically know why.
The SIXAXIS use in this game is pretty specific. If you try to control your dragon by throwing the controller left to right, up to down, it just plain isn't gonna work. You have to control the dragon smoothly, not by jerking around the controller. Something I noticed is that a lot of people that I've let play this game try to jerk the controller around and then get mad because it "Isnt working right". This problem was remedied when I got them to 'flow' from side to side and up to down.
Doing 180's can result in forward dash.
Too much cut-scenes during a battle.
Sometimes the games graphics look like a ps2 game.
Well lair is defiantly not as bad as most of the reviews done by major websites. This is defiantly not a 4.9/10 game. But it isn't perfect either. Lair has fun gameplay were it has you killing dragons and destroying cities. It might be difficult to tell between if its a friendly dragon or a foe as they look the same from a distance.
This game defiantly shines in the sound and graphic department. The levels look so great and are very detailed. And the music is perfect to listen to in 5.1 surround sound. It really has the epic feel of a movie such as Lord of the rings.
One of the biggest complaints of the game is the sixaxis. All I can say is if you comple...
