At bloody last! Now I have to go buy it again as I traded it for Lair (Which, oddly enough I'm REALLY enjoying :)) when it didn't load up any more objectives! Good thing I kept my save game.

I returned mine 3 days after release, as it was unplayable. I would keep an eye on Ubi forums over the next week or so to see what the feedback will be. I'm sure they fixed the freezing, but if the framerate and screen-tearing isn't fixed I'm not sure I'd go buy it again.

And noticed no issues!!

As a fellow PS3 gamer, would you mind lending me 5 minutes to tell me why you like Lair? My $10 could depend on it as I'm on the fence as to whether I should rent it or not...

And I'll definitely d/l this patch later today. Good move, Ubisoft... Now make Assassins Creed 2 a PS3 exclusive. :D

Sure, no problem :)

The music is amazing! Especially in surround sound. You can tell it has high production values.

Story, and the way it is told is very cool (has a moment a few missions in that really makes you think about your situation....which is a first for me). I like the narrator, makes everything feel extremely epic.

The levels are bloody huge.

There's a LOT going on in the levels.

....and now for a controversial comment....

I like the control scheme alot!! I'm not sure what the hell people were complaining about. It felt pretty responsive to me (maybe they added something to the UK release to make it feel better or something) Also, I play dogfights in Warhawk with the motion controls on and kick ass so this isn't much different :). You just need to think that the joypad in your hand acts like "reigns" on the dragon so you are not actually controlling the dragon directly, but the rider. I think there was only one level which I had problems with (so far lol) and it's the mission at night with tons of spotlights searching for you and I reckon that was only because I was too impatient. When I took my time, I was fine.

But what I like most about it is that I finally think I've actually played a "next-gen" game. It just feels different than most games I played (I'm comparing it too Drakenguard and Panzer Dragoon) I heard all the bad reviews but I only ever trust my own opinion in the end, which is why I like demos. In this case I took a risk as there were no demos.....but it paid off. It really belongs in my collection.

If you're just gonna rent it for 10 bucks, I'll say go for it. I bought it and I'm very happy.......but of course that's just my opinion :)

It's not a perfect game, but it didn't deserve all the fuss about it. Only one thing to add to LeShin perfect description: It's also a great game to have on your shelf for those people who are not gamers. I've seen pretty young players doing very well with it (much better than some reviewers I guess!). I've also seen some of my friends who hate consoles because they cannot stand the controllers (you know the type that won't play if it's not with a mouse and keyboard?) absolutely enjoying it and sadly, hugging my PS3 for hours... Trust me, don't spend money renting it. Buy it (maybe on Ebay) and then if you ever don't like it, sell it back. If you rent it, you may have a hard time taking it back to the store : )

I hope they fixed the Rumble support in the patch. I have only noticed my Dualshock 3controller rumble when you block a sword attack from a fight with an armed guard.

The Ubi team on this project is kickingass

Are they going to fix the 360 version tho?

edit well a lot of gamers bought the 360 version they deserve a working game 2 imo...

InMyOpinion3885d ago

Why would that be any different? Patch there as well, if needed.
