Game Focus: LAIR Analog Controls Patch Review

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.

Actually i never played due to the controls issue. Maybe now is my chance

Very nice, only like 6 months late.

I just rented Lair, and I think it's really good. Well, except for the minor frame-rate and lock-on issues, it's a good game. I'd easily give it an 7.5 - 8.

It's WAAAAY too late! I rented this when you had to use motion sensor and it was annoying. I beat the game and I give it a 0! It doesn't even have online!

not every game needs online play.

I hear the same thing alot and it's seems people who say stuff like this just aren't thinking at all.

It's not like you can find a boat load of Lair type games and I doubt the market will be saturated with it in future.

See, the PS3 has only sold roughly 11 million units world wide and even if you're the most pesimistic gamer eva you know it's going to move atleast 5 time more in it's life time (but likely over 10times more) so for all these new comers, they'll be checking out Lair, why? cause their new to the expereince, like Dragon fantasy games and it's not likely you'll have a lot of Dragon type games this gen like FPSs or something.

And if you say "nah, people will ony buy current games" then that's kinda silly thinking cause when the PS3 gets cheaper, all these games in year one & two are going to be cheaper too. The whole reason most will be picking up a PS3 years from now is that it'll be cheaper so you really think they wouldn't buy cheaper games too?

With the patch Lair will likely sell well over a millin in it's life time and this will be good cause then the PS3 fanbase can get a Lair II.. and you know if there's a Lair II it'll drop jaws with it's trailers announcing it and you'll see more of a spike in Lair 1 sales becasue of it, like what happend with KZ1 when KZ2 trailer came out in 2005 and 2007.

Considering how long it took, I'm surprised they even bothered. I was really hoping for all out, multi-player dragon battles, turning the sides of a battle against another player with more variety, but I guess this is the best we're going to get. I'll probably gamefly it again in a year or two once I've made my peace with the controls.
