Lair Preview - "The controls certainly make the game feel more engaging"

The latest preview of Lair is from An Australian site. They had a hand's on impression of the game and have a preview up. Jason Hill writes :

"First impressions are brilliant. Controlling your dragon mount is intuitive, with your majestic, hulking steed banking left and right responsively according to your joypad tilting.

The controls certainly make the game (at least initially) feel more engaging."

I think this is the most "In your face EGM" article posted here. Great find.

Update: After finishing the article I think that Lair's motion sensetive controls are a new experience but still need work and the article makes the game look much better than a 5.5/10 rated game.

I dont know whether to get this or Warhawk

jay33845d ago

Or if you can only get one then...

Warhawk if you dig Online MP

And Lair if, obviously, you prefer story. Does Lair have Online MP?

MK_Red3845d ago

LOL at the meaningless disagree (A personal question getting disagree!?). Someone just disagreed with first 2 posts.

Also, I personally suggest Lair since its from Factor 5, is great looking and has both singleplayer and multiplayer.

honestly, i think i believe the EGM guys a little more. Lair reminds me of red steel in a way. Wii Fanboys flammed when reviewers said it sucked. They wanted it to be all that, but it just wasnt. It was a decent game, just like lair is going to be. But i dont think lair is going to be 8.5+ out of 10 material.

2 cents

Hatchetforce3845d ago

The problem is previews on various sites and one other review didn't have an issue with the controls. We aren't talking about fanboys disagreeing with EGM, though they certainly do, we are discussing other MORE REPUTABLE online sites than EGM/1up.

EGM themselves know there is an issue or else they would not have responded. It isn't like the magazine isn't in trouble financially...they are.

EGM is in the sweat box. If IGN's review winds up like their preview, if Gamespot's review winds up like their preview, if Game Informer's review winds up like their preview then EGM's credibility goes farther out the window than it already is.

It also doesn't help when their 'clarification' listed one of the good points as one of the items that was an issue in the original review.

That is hilarious..........So you believe one media publication because it is nagative....LOL not if that wasn't a fanboy statement I don't know what is...thanks for the laugh! You must be young because it is about preference you do know all people think different right just because one person doesn't like doesn't mean another feels the same way.

To Woody

1. Shut Up
2. Learn what the word "opinion" means.
3. Try to understand what you read.
4. Revise your sentence construction.

Seriously though Woody, did you even understand what you said in your own post? First, you call me a fanboy for believing the EGM guys. Then you say that it's all about preference and that what one person doesn't like is not the way another feels about it. So what's so wrong with me believing the EGM guys then? Do you even see the level of stupidity in your self-contradiction? Maybe you're the fanboy.

Uncharted, Lair, Warhawk & Heavenly Sword are must have's for PS3

PStriple7033845d ago

resistance1003845d ago

Yep and add Uncharted: Drakes fortune to that list and you have 4 kick ass 1st party titles ^_^


I'm looking for something other than blu-ray movies to purchase and it seems that my choices consist of XBOX 360 ports, crappy game or crappy game or once again Blu-ray. I see so much Blu-ray that I'm dreaming about it in my sleep, it's the coolest, really it is; I think? I don't know anymore it's been just about a year with no games and none foreseeable in the future. I mean come on how can I get that excited about games I wouldn't even consider if Socom 4, GTA4 or MGS were available. I feel as though I'm just trying to justify my early adoption of a Blu-ray player, because by the time even one game comes out I care about I'll own 25 Blu-ray movies and the PS3 will cost $299 for the 80G model. Sony whats more important owning and controlling all the proprietary equipment in my entertainment center or delivering quality equipment and games in your already established gaming empire? Greed will get you everywhere keep up the good work. Gotta love Sony because someday their gonna own a part of you. Start brushing up on my Japanese now so as I might have some say someday.
