Highlights from 1UP editor Crispin Boyer's review:
"Unfortunately, (Lair) will make you wonder what the hell's going on. Because along with the clash-of-thousands battles and Peter Jackson-esque production values comes strictly nonstick motion control and a confounding combat system.
The big idea here is that you ride your dragon... gripping the Sixaxis like reins and steering your beast with subtle leaning or quick gestures... It's all very cool in theory. It's too bad it doesn't always work... Lair is often a frustrating experience, one of those games where you die or fail through no fault of your own. Unfortunately -- unlike Warhawk -- Lair doesn't give you an option to play with the analog sticks.
Ultimately, Lair is a game that you'll want for its eye-popping experience rather than its gameplay. So buy it if you want to justify all the thousands you spent on your PS3 and that 1080p HDTV you can see from the International Space Station. Don't buy it if you want a dragon that does what it's damn well told."
