Lair might as well be known as the Big Dragon Game. Such a name is fitting, given the scope of the project. Up until last week, it had been mired in speculation, but Sony let some secrets slip, and thankfully, Lair is looking extremely impressive, the type of first party shot in the arm that the PlayStation 3 desperately needs. In the game, you play as an unnamed male warrior struggling to survive in a war-torn world rife with peril. As two civilizations wage an epic battle for control, the man and his dragon must learn to survive in harsh conditions, all the while repelling enemy foot soldiers and other dragons. It's a hot concept, one that's been explored in other videogames, most notably Sega's Panzer Dragoon series, but where that franchise is popular for its poetic brutality, Lair's violence is much less subtle. During the course of your adventure, thousands of polygonal soldiers are going to die. People will fall off cliffs, off the backs of their own dragons (plummeting thousands of feet to their deaths), and even more will be lit on fire. It also features free roaming gameplay, which is vastly different from Panzer's limiting on-rails design.
