Great Game, but this version is dissapointing, realy bad delay in between scenes

Summary: I agree with most of the other reviews, this was a great game back in the day, but this version and transfer to BLU-RAY is very disappointing! I used to own this coin-operated arcade. There were 2 versions of the coin-operated arcade, US and UK version. And in the arcade internal options, you could set it to linear or non-linear (random). Would give higher rate but.. no matter which way you tweak the settings, it will always jump the scenes in random order.
A generation later, still can't get to the dragon...because of glitches

Summary: I own a newer (Panasonic) Blu-ray player. Have never had a serious problem playing any Blu-ray movie on my player...even new releases. I'm not one of those "need to update your firmware" technology consumers. Enter Dragon's Lair. Ugh, what a disappointment. Playing this game now, I feel that same sense of nostalgia...that I did back when I was a pre-teen losing my 50 cents so fast it created a compulsion to plunk down another 50 cents. Not a good nostalgia.
Summary: I have to say, the problems people state about playing it on their PS3 are valid. But it seems to be a hit and miss problem. I played this on my father's PS3 and it had that problem of hitting a particular scene and then freezing. I brought it home and played it on my own PS3 and it worked smoothly with not so much as a long pause between loading chapters.
Summary: One of my all time favorites, but completely unplayable on my PS3. It hangs... I mean forever at specific boards. Disc completely new and untouched. Another question is: WHY IS THERE NO SUPPORT FOR THE BLU-RAY for DRAGON'S LAIR & SPACE ACE on DIGITAL LEISURE'S SITE? Is it because they knew there are way too many glitches?
Summary: I was looking forward to this based on my memories of the arcade version. I wish I'd waited until the reviews showed up.The first challenge - works as expected. If you die, you go back to the start of the game. After that, it throws you into a random sequence if you die, making it nearly impossible to complete anything, because you only get one try.
great transfer, but too many pauses while playing game.

Summary: Remember Dragon's Lair from the arcade? This is the same game but you play it with your DVD remote control. The video quality is top-notch, but the gameplay leaves much to be desired. I expected the game to pause when you make a wrong move (in order for it to seek the disc for the death scene), but this DVD actually pauses when you make CORRECT moves. The pause is about 1 second long. It makes levels such as the chessboard/knight excruciating painful to sit through.
