Great news for those who couldn't get to grips with Lair's motion controls: the patch for analog flight controls is now live, and also brings crosshairs as a menu option. The patch is 147MB, and is up now for European Lair owners.

I actually think Lair is cool. You just couldn't control the damn thing.

Now, I'll actually beat this game.

sigh. Lair could have been a great game. If they had let me get off that dragon for some hand to hand combat with some of those useless troops. The dragon combat is STUPID. Flying side to side and slamming yourself into the dragon. WTF is that. The dragon also appears to breathe fire like a machine gun. Lairs faults go beyond sixaxis use. It was a good effort from factor 5 but sorry didn't work out. Better luck next time

I see you weren't even playing Lair properly and got fraustrated or have been mislead by some game-site vids.

You can't play Lair like it's a shooter cause it's not. Spamming fire balls aren't potent and don't do much at all. You have to tap the fire button at 1second intervals for proper potent fire balls.

You can obivusly see the difference in size and how you can take out a ship with just two balls but if you spamm your fireballs they do virtually nothing to alot of enemies and they'll pwn you.

Just play the game how its supposed to be played and you'll have a better experience.

I picked up Lair on launch. I still have it and it never gathered dust. I learned early on the one thing you need to learn to do in order to play Lair -leave the damn sticks alone.

While I welcome a control scheme that makes it more friendly to a larger audience, the biggest issue from which this game suffered was intentional bad press generated by people out to sabotage one of the big early games on the PS3. It worked. And it wasn't the last game to suffer from a negativity campaign.

There is a reason a superior next gen game like Ratchet and Clank was never given due credit.
