Lair Hands-on: Surprisingly Good SIXAXIS Controls, Impressive Visuals & Steady Frame-rate

Joystiq writes:
"The SixAxis controls felt great -- which surprised us, since the controls had received the most negative press. Flying around as a dragon was incredibly satisfying as we could feel the weight of the creature when swooping down or pulling up further into the sky. It reminded us of the old DOS game Magic Carpet in how you had to compensate for momentum, lest you fly much further than intended. "

I used to lean a bit when I would play flying or racing games. Finally I broke myself of that habit, and now they are ENCOURAGING extra body movement while using a controller!!! DAMNIT I CAN'T WIN!

You can't judge a game based on 20 minutes. Wait for the review.

Dead Rising is a perfect 10 until you get half-way into the game. It then loses 2 points for some strange plot twists.

LAIR's graphics alone makes it a MUST BUY

now the CONTROLLLING is good too.

I know cuz i played it at the GDC yesterday

The GRAPHICS are the best in the world

It makes any game look like a wii game

MK_Red4075d ago

Well, this is Joystiq and I trust them more than all other sites combined so in my book: Lair is AWESOME.

EZCheez4075d ago

This is driving me nuts. I really wish they would release a demo for it so that I could judge myself. I don't like renting games.

jtmill074075d ago

I’m all for a demo. I just don’t understand how a game can get so many different reviews. That’s why I really want a DEMO so I can make up my own mind please…….

DarkArcani4075d ago

cause if you like it you have to spend the money, again, to buy it.

tplarkin74075d ago

It's a 20 minute preview. It's not a full review at all.

This is more a case of people really trying to downplay the game as much as possible in order to shift focus from it towards something else or the game mechanics have undertook a massive overhaul to fix the perceived problem.
Either way I am now more inclined to pick this one up after the last weeks worth of reviews.
