Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this in the States a few weeks ago. The dependency on SIXAXIS motion-sensor controls will throw a fair few people, and will leave many frustrated. I got stuck once or twice on a couple of levels because the controller wouldn't respond exactly as required in split-second instances.
If you're going to grasp the spirit of the game you have to rationalise the fact that you are, er, flying dragons - huuuuuge cumbersome beasties which (if they existed) would be unable to rotate on a pinhead. Hence flying around can feel a little stilted if you've been spoon-fed on free-and-instantaneous 360-degree movement in other games.
The SIXAXIS is a great way for player control - it's just this game that does it a misjustice. Additionally, some of the combo attacks aren't as easy to execute as Sony the developers would like us to think. Example: the level where you bludgeon the two giant sea-serpents' eyes out feels like you are reliant on the console automatically doing it for you, not through your own handiwork (although it IS supposed to your effort).
Aesthetically speaking, the game's visuals are frequently exquisite. Both in-game and in cutscenes, the graphical texture can be that of velvet. It's kind of showcase stuff, although no doubt within a matter of months other (and overall better) games will be pushing the PS3 graphics engine to the limit in terms of the eye-popping visual delivery we really hoped the PS3 would bring us.
In a nutshell: Lair is visually compelling, unfortunately challenging from a manual not a skill-set perspective, but really rather tremendous fun if torching humans to death with an all-flying 20-tonne scaly flame-thrower dings your dong. Good soundtrack, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potential was there, but a few flaws... 14 Aug 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I love dragons. I love video games. Put the two together and I am in absolute heaven.
Or so I thought.
After waiting with baited breath for the arrival of LAIR in my local game store, my bf and I brought it home and popped it into our PS3 only to find out....the controls are damned difficult.
At first I thought it was simply him having issues mastering the sixaxis controls, as I'd spent some time previously playing "Flow" where the only controls are via the controller's sixaxis sensors. But when I got my hands on the controller finally and tried it out myself it was difficult, sluggish, and overall very frustrating. So much so that I believe we tried to play this game for 2 hours between the two of us and we haven't put it back in since. It felt like a lot of money to spend on a game that was difficult to maneuver through. (As an aside we're both experienced, veteran gamers. We've had plenty of chances to sample challenging game play AND poor character controls. This game features the latter.)
The game would definitely benefit from giving the players the ability to choose between either using the sixaxis controls or going with the old standbys, your LS and RS on the game controller. WarHawk was designed this way and there has been plenty of time wasted in our house on that game because we could choose between the two.
I do want to give the game props for being visually stunning to play, as well as having a few interesting features. Being able to slam in to the enemy by jerking the sixaxis controller was, although difficult to accomplish, an interesting way to attack them. It definitely made you feel as if you were more in to the story that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars lair (PS3) 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Quick deliverly on this one, great game, lots to do in this one. Would also highly recommend seller, but I would recommend it to children over the age of 10 years old on this, as some of it is a little bit scary in parts of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Squadron with Dragons 18 May 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off this game got mixed to poor reviews from critics when it first came out as there was no alternative to using the sixaxis which can be cluncky and unresponsive at times however since the games release factor 5 patched the game allowing you to change to regular analog controls making the contols much easier.

Now the game itself is great, if you ever played any of the star wars rogue sqadron games on N64 or Gamecube(also from factor 5) then you know exactly what you're in for.

From the menus right down to the gameplay and even how you choose which dragon to use, it's all ripped right from those games given a medieval/fantasy overcoat and delivered in HD to your PS3.

If this game had the option for analog control from the start the critic reviews would have been much better. This game is a hidden gem of the PS3 and i highly recommend it if you enjoyed the rouge squadron games or like dragons and the fantasy setting or both of the above especially now you can grab this game at less than a tenner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game overall 29 April 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is a fun hack and slash game where you ride a dragon and fight. The game itself is great but the controls are complicated and take a lot of getting use to. Also the game is hard and is not for your young gamers as their is a lot of blood and violence. Overall this game is pretty good.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I guess thats all i have to say really, its got big dragons, awesome graphics, Yes, even back in 2007, this game looked pretty awesome, and still does.

Plenty of action, plenty of gorgeous looking cutscenes, and plenty of action again.

Its a shame that there wont be a LAIR 2. this game deserves a sequel.

If like me you aim to have a good lot of PS3 exclusives in your collection, then this is one of the best ones to have amongst them.
.............................

For some reason, people always mention the crappy controls, even when i tell them they can use the analogue sticks now, they still come up with something negative to say.
