The controls are so much better the game has become better to play in every way. You can pull 180 degree turns, dive, claw and fight your away with such ease you will be amazed and it does make the game more fun, much more fun in fact Game Focus will not sell/burn their copy of LAIR and plan on keeping it. But overall it is too little too late for most gamers. Most will not even try the game again and if they do it will not go beyond a rental. Perhaps a demo will be released with the new controls and gamers will give that a try or just wait for LAIR 2.
Bottom Line – Worth the download if you have the game or will rent it. The game is fun, like it should have been in the beginning.
