Mount dragons, torch civilisations and get motion sickness in Lair
Loads of games come packing some sort of free gift. Badges, posters, a quality Fruit of the Loom T-shirt - the usefulness varies. Now a brown paper bag, neatly folded inside the box of Lair, would be perfect, something you could genuinely get something out of - or rather, put something into. After all, when you've just shelled out nearly half a grand on that super-polished PS3, you're not going to want to chunder all over it, are you?
There's a very real risk of that happening with this dragon-bashing epic, a game threatening to have your arms in knots tighter than a midshipman's hitch. The controller's tilt function adds to the sensation of floating in mid air - tilting it back and forth makes your scaly steed nosedive or climb, tilting it left or right makes the dragon do the same. Jerking the controller violently forwards sends your dragon charging into a dust-up with other dragons.
