UK TV program Gamer.tv has given Lair 3/5. The episode aired at 10:00am Saturday morning and I personally watched it myself so can confirm the score is correct. They didn't seem to have any issues with the controls but said it was a bit repetitive.
Haha, if this gets approved (and I know it will, expect 150+ comments and over 500 degrees.
I'm still gonna rent this game to see how it turns out.
Ya same here, I plan on giving it a rent and not a buy. I can't see this game being fun for more then 1 or 2 times through it.
People everywhere on both sides are all waiting for the big reviewers to give their review on Sony's up and comers, not from these rinky dink reviews coming from like Poland and sh*t. PS3 gamers are praying for excellent scores while Xboxers are standing by with Tonight Show quality monologue waiting for these games to bomb. I for one would expect high marks if I were a gamer thinking that, "ok, these are the upcoming games sony really has been pimping, they have to be good, or what the hell have we been defending this system for?" 3 out of 5 is not a bad score at all. I'm waiting to see Xplay's review of the game. I love watching Xplay for their Xpert ; ) opinion and very reasonable take on most games. Plus, I like to see Morgan Webb's massive melons (you just know that she have some huuuge areolas) umph, umph.....sorry...anyways, as the reviews that count slowly start to come in, let's hope these games are at least some of what has been hyped about them.
what is the lowest score bioshock got?...
yeah yeah yeah i know PS3 owners will say we will play it in my blah blah pc which either you do not own or your pc cannot run crab.if your pc can run bioshock as good as 360 than you have one hell of pc why would you than play consoles ?? becuse you do not have that pc
@nasim:first i remmber when you said you will play bioshock in your system ATI1900XXX now after readinG your post it prove my above argument and it is clear to me that most ps3 owners who said they will play bioshock in their pc were lying(no pc) and desperate to play bioshock
than who said any FPS without online is worse than other gener without online .this is show how your are narrow minded and retard.did you read what the devloper said regarding this ? the game offer around 20 horse of play and you can play it 3/4/5 times and evertime it will be like diffrent game that is why it got 7 prefect reviews .while i am playing this game go and play the blue ray which you got for free time after time in you SDTV
then how come it gets a 10 on gamerTV.
an FPS without online is worse than other genre game without online.,
another MS viral marketer
Its another cack game for the PS3, i feel sorry for you PS gamers. All the games are complete crap. If sony dont impress at leipzig or TGS they need to go to hell. When i see games they promised 2 years ago like Eight days, the getaway 3, GT5 hahaha, and many more as we all know i will buy one. But untill that day i'm sticking with MS and their great software line up. I'm sick of waiting
This Is Waiting
not every game needs online.
Zelda never had it and well many zelda games were awesome.
quit drinking the koolaid buddy
no i rise it to 250
Oh noooooooo! :D
turning out to have areal mixed bag of reviews. I'm quite curious to see what IGN and PSM give it, it's definitely looking like a see for yourself game at the moment. Then again some games that have had mediocre reviews, like enter the matrix, i have absolutely loved.
haha, it looks like the approvals are actually DECREASING...
That game had so much potential, but it was half assed and not done, that's why it got a low score. Still, I had a lot of fun playing it.
Enter the matrix was a good game, and it connected the storyline between reloaded and revolutions perfectly.
3 out of 5? That's 6 out of 10 on the scale most are using.
EGM reviewers (3) gave it 5, 5.5 and 6. And this had to be a system seller/killer app? RIGHT
ANd wait a second Sony fanboys now report this because its a forum post... But they approved the forum posts with high false reviewmarks a few weeks ago for the same games?
Bit biased guys, don't you think so? Anyone, approve this story. It should be front page
Even though everything you said is totally true, expect a lot of fanboys complaining, and saying the reviewers are bis or didn't get a good code. Some PS3 fans need to face the fact that the game will probably, suck.
Hey, I can use the worst reviews from ANY game!!! That'll prove my point!
Lair sucks. That's the harsh truth of it.
Go suck off Harrison.
The most articulate Blood gang member.
my point here is that TheMart will jump on any chance to diss a PS3 game...when he should be out gaming.
I just don't understand any of your guys' logic on siding with MS and letting them ruin gaming forever. There's no innovation, no honor, nothing.
If Lair sucked, we wouldn't be hearing about how good it is from people like Gamesradar, IGN, 1up, and VARIOUS OTHER WEBSITES/MAGAZINES!
These sony fans are not gamers they are followers. When sony deliver i will buy myself a ps3. Its been a about a year and sony are JUST starting to get their act together, but if they think HOME and Dude raider are system sellers they are living somewhere else? (i wonder)
I'm looking forward to the rest of this year. Can sony impress? or just keep pissing people off, we will wait and see.
MS is ruining gaming by bringing out the highest rated games and the highest attach rate inhistory of gaming. Right.
@ Dead111Red below; At least Mart uses valid arguments to back up his words, you just call him biased without providing an argument. By doing so you make yourself much less credible.
And what? You want to hear him say HS sucks?
You are the very definition of biased. You put the whole Fox News network to shame. Just thinking of Bill O'Reilly gives me some relief...
Anyways this seems to be a love/hate game so I'll rent it first and if it sucks then I'll just be playing Heavenly Sword, which by the way MART is suppose to be more of a "killer app" than Lair, but why don't you comment about those reviews?
"You are the very definition of biased."
Why? Because I list the reviews other respected magazins gave this game? It just sucks. It's not the Killer app/System seller they hyped it to be. Is that biased? No. That's reality dude.
"I'll just be playing Heavenly Sword, which by the way MART is suppose to be more of a "killer app" than Lair, but why don't you comment about those reviews?"
I do. Watch the latest Heavenly Sword article on this site. Its a decent game, but those Play Mag biased shiat and a East European country bad review are not unbiased. Wait for IGN and EGM to give some reviews. Mark my words. It'll get an 8 max. Not anywhere near to Gears of War or Bioshock AAA over 90% score. Like NO game on PS3 got up to now. THat's the PS3's problem. No real system sellers, no killer apps, no AAA games. Period. You can disagree, but thats the way it is. A PS2 with God of War II is a cheaper and better option then a PS3 with Heavenly Sword or should we say Goddess of War
theMart you're the best, keep the good work.....this game sucks big time
I completely agree, LAIR sucks
I am disappointed about this review, They said having no multiplayer was a bad thing when a game doesn't have to have multiplayer to be good look at Bioshock. I will still probably get this game though.
To all those reporting, its a TV program the only sources I could find were forums. Don't see why we should have to wait for someone to upload it on gametrailers, I watched this program myself so I know its true and you will in time. They also reviewed Stuntman and gave that 3/5 and preview Uncharted (Gave good impressions) and Jericho and Timeshift. Also showed some footage of Haze from the Edinburgh thing that went on this week.
its a conspiracy against lair to give it a bad score. :P
For people who are a fanboys that is called a joke.
No really i actually want this game to do good becasue i want it.
But hey if this isn't even confirmed who knows.
I still kinda want this game.
NASIM man you just dont get it buddy do you?
And i will say this very slow for you, graphics don't equal a good game! i don't know how else to say that to you. Games with good graphics can be good(in fact they can be f'in awesome). But when you just say how many polys are in a dragons wing in lair i think you are kinda missing the point.
I do hope Lair is excellent, but dude all you brag about is graphics!
Bioshock doesn't need mp. Zelda never need MP many games didn't need MP. You get the point?
Why not play by yourself and actually enjoy it? heck i highly doubt many people even want to freaking play with you online becasue you are so freaking rabid.
"How can an FPS without online gets 10"
Because it might actually have a good, story atmosphere, gameplay etc!
Doesn't that count for anything?
But hey, what else would i expect from nasim.
and it got 10 from many sites.
How can an FPS without online gets 10.
when LAIR being the most visually impressive game gets a 6/10
if nASIM loves this game so BAD then leave him be...
nASIM will be stuck with this crap arse game and that would be good for us all!
I'm beginning to think this game was all hype, like plenty of Sony games coming out. BD is needed this and that..give me a break. I wanna play a game not watch Ergaon.
This is no longer a must have title..simple
Well that one less game we must here sony nuts cry about. This one has lost it's flame (pun intended).
Nah this is not for me i want a quality game not a piece of good looking crap
This game never looked good to me and I never knew how they could make a dragon riding game interesting enough to get 10 hours+ gameplay from it. From the scores its getting it seems kinda obvious that they didn't know how to make it interesting either.
The main problem with Lair is that it is waaaay too over hyped.
Oh, and I'll also mention I'm a PS3 fanboy and despise the 360... I just never liked this game and I will never pay $120 for it.
but yeah people were throwing out specs on this game and how good it looks, but hey if the game plays really bad, the best graphics in the world aren't going to save it.
However this review isn't confirmed, and i still hope its good.
And hey maybe a bunch of great reviews will come out for it.
$120? waaaaaa? just curious why so much?
and yeah that sucks about lair...but the concept and musical score I think warrant at least a rental
PS3 and 360 games are $120 RRP in Australia ($94 US)
I was looking forward to playing Lair but I guess its a bit of a letdown :(
Don't brag too much fellow xbox fans..
...Blue Dragon is in the same situation...
that was a 4 out of 5 though(at least for one review i saw).
But i do see your point.
No worries m8.
you mean sjappie, that is the diffrence between the games...
Blue Dragon was expected to sell and rated well in Japan...(and it did wonmders ofc)but America is a mystery for this game....and this is what we end up with..not saying it got horrid reviews...
its above avarage....
But Lair....Lair was suppose to be a 93-96% avarage..AAAgame....
but...It failed to do that...
I guess this is a bigger blow to PS than BD was to Us...
two diffrent sutiations...
sorry for comparing the two them on my other post...
It still looks good and will be an average game.
I would like to see more reveiws, as always, but it is continually getting average scores. The positive thing is that its not due to Sixaxis controls.
The EGM review was brutal about the controls. They even interviewed the developers on it with the review on the latest mag.
ppl made out that lair was a must buy game, but clearly after some reviews its just average, so all the hype made this game biger than what it was, hype kills games cos not many live up to it, who would wanna be a game dev, its funny cos I thought lair was going to be a big hitter but its seems like its going to flop, and I thought HS was going to be a flop but its getting alsome reviews, so id say forget about Lair and get HS instead :)
tried to make it appear to be a killer app.
I mean i liked the rougue squadron series and its being done by the same devs so i kinda wanted this game to be good. But oh well.
But yeah from the looks of it HS appears that it could be a extremely excellent game.
ohh NO! Incoming!
Commander: Speak solder!
Solder: The Sony fanboys are comming! They are pissed!
Commander: Damn... Sony fanboys... they refused to hear the truth... Why didn't they just give Lair 10/10 and prevent more blood shed.
Solder: Yes Commander!
Commander: We are pulling back! We don't want another massacre... It's already bad enough that we are getting all these AAA weapons of mass destruction (Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc)... the last thing they need is for us to attack their pride after their expectations were raise to the sky with their lair weapon... which endup being more of a water pistol...
Solder: Yes Sir!
This game is what it is. Some people will love it and other will hate it. They took a big risk making it all SIXAXIS. THe people that were expecting a 10/10 will still get it and probably like it. I dont really care because the game looks really fun.
Have fun with those 3 games (btw, I dont see the big deal with Mass Effect) because next year you'll be up against MGS4, LBP, Killzone 2, FFXIII, ect. If it is a war you want, then a war you will get.
I'm giving you bubbles, just becuase that post was awesome!
What does bioshock, mass effect, and halo3 have to do with this other than the sake of pushing out fanboyism? But then again, its you.
Just wondering, I know i have rampant misspells and incorrect grammar but you did it so many times ...?
Nice one, not really funny IMO, but nice shot nuntheless
we have other weapons coming out also
I don't have to name them, you probably know them better than I do
Seeing as your on the PS3 side of the news postings more than 360
peace out Blade
i have to wait a year for those games, i need to play something now, so if its a war you want, its a war you get this year.
Sorry just wanted to twist your words around.
BTW you didnt mention anything from this year like uncharted, R&C, HS or anything.
Those are probably going to be pretty good.
Haha, that was so sad!
"If it's war you want then it's war you'll get!" what are you? 12?
LBP is basically Lemmings, but with no parachutes or digging. Just walking and jumping.
MGS fair enough. But considering only the first one was good...
KZ2, we haven't played it, just seen people saying it looks pretty and things break. I'll get it when i see there's a reason to.
Final Fantasy. Sure, if that's your bag. How good were the last 3 FFs? I played X and couldn't go anymore. It's Blue Dragon with a story that's all over the place. Select your attack. Watch him do it. Select your monster. Watch it attack. Then you win and find out you have to go back around 10 miles to pick up something. Then, and only then, can you continue with the boring fight system. Yeah, sounds awesome.
Yea that was pretty cheesy, but it was dumb to bring up all those other games. He is an idiot and what does he want to prove? That halo will score higher? No Sh1t... Most people expected Lair to be pretty average.
(Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc)
Elaborate on the etc because i fail to see any other half decent games in the future.
This game will Still be a 5 for people who really want to play a full game using the Sixaxis controller. I plan on renting this game and Buying WARHAWK. This game just shows of the new control scheme but it does have great graphics. WARHAWK and Heavenly Sword will be more of a buy type of game and I am getting both of them and the PS3 FragFX Controller. LIAR is a Dragon Lovers Wet Dream though.
bladestar, that was gangsta. I couldn't help but laugh.
Im buying this game. I loved Rouge Squadron and I hope this is just as fun. Hope there wont be too much ground combat.
last Rougue Squadron game.
and another one down, another one bites the dust yeah.
ya took the words right out of my mouth mate !
Don't flame me:
But is it possible that despite all the hype, Lair--which I have stated many, many times is a title I would LOVE to have on my 360--just isn't very good?
It has happened to games before: Not living up to the hype. It will happen again.
Agree? Disagree? Rational replies would be appreciated.
but the only people hyping this are the fanboys...
I don't know yet until the game comes out and been played then I will see for myself...but judging from the previews this game is a hit or a miss for some :)
This does happen often, now that I think about it. More than I think we as gamers care to admit. The thing is, that Sony doesn't have enuff games out right now, So any game that comes out Sony fans would want to be triple A. When that clearly is unrealistic.
I must admit I fall into this catergory, when it comes to THIS particular game. I wasn't that interested in this game at first, because I wanted the rider to be able to get of and whoop ass in conjunction with the Dragon. TO ME that would have been more next Gen along with the game the Dev's had already built. But whatever.
I was pulled in by the hype, and while I do still want to get this game, Some more positive reviews, coupled with a Demo or rental, is probably the only way I will get this game Now.
p.s. gave you a bubb man
i agree. i think it will still be fun so im still gonna get it. but it may not be as good as once thought.
It does not sound bad to me.So,I guess we should ignore the other reviews it got as well.
Play Magazine 9/10
PSW*UK mag* 8/10
Gamer TV: 3/5
No not another one down,people did not even read, they aid nothing bad about sixaxis,it was a bit repetitive and they wanted mutiplayer
there is still a chance that is is a decent maybe good game. I mean for we probably have to wait n see for what all the other reviewers say.
PSW*UK mag* 8/10
Play Magazine 9/10
Edge Magazine: 9.0
Game Informer: 9.5
i think that reviews on the spot if you ask me i would have given it 2/5
