Summary: I bought this game because of the Panzer Dragoon series on Sega and Xbox consoles, it's very simple - I love dragons. Thing is, the game looks ugly, it plays ugly and I got bored in 1-2 hours.
For those on the fence, here are some details; before and after the patch.

Summary: By now all of the back and fourth between "This game is epic!" and "This game is epic fail!" is probably giving those of you who are considering Lair a few headaches. A lot of press reviewers hate it, a lot of user reviewers love it, the creator of Bioshock defended it and there are mixed reviews...
Summary: I love dragons. I love video games. Put the two together and I am in absolute heaven. Or so I thought. After waiting with baited breath for the arrival of LAIR in my local game store, my bf and I brought it home and popped it into our PS3 only to find out....the controls are damned difficult.
A lot of huffing and puffing, but some great flame-throwing fun

Summary: The dependency on SIXAXIS motion-sensor controls will throw a fair few people, and will leave many frustrated. I got stuck once or twice on a couple of levels because the controller wouldn't respond exactly as required in split-second instances.
Summary: Oh wow. My uncle, who is big into dragons, picked this up yesterday. We played it last night. The game really is awful. My uncle's disappointment was very evident. I thought he was about to cry. It is just crazy how a game with so much going for it could suffer from such tremendous gameplay flaws.
Summary: This game is worth buying if you love warcraft/medievil games, and also the
controls for this game took a while to get used to but you still got to rate it
3 stars for intense gameplay and never ending action
( if flying dragons floats your boat, then buy this game!!!)
Summary: There really is nothing cooler that hopping on a dragon and flaming
everything you possibly can. Controls take some getting use to. Storyline is
good and levels are really full on heaps to do and plenty to destroy. Its one of
those games that you will keep going back too
Excerpt: Another disapointment for me. This game has the potential to be great but I found it very slow to respond. The dragons looked nice & the cutscenes were very cinematic. Plenty of action & the levels get longer thoughout the game but when your shaking the controller & dying all the time then going...
