Lair casts players as a dragon-riding warrior saving their kingdom from invasion. In a world ravaged by endless conflicts and natural disasters, a call for peace turns into a bloodbath of betrayal and deceit.
Playing as a warrior riding a voracious dragon trained for deadly aerial and ground combat, and capable of scorching, clawing and smashing thousands of enemies, gamers must defeat countless armies to save a civilization.
Together, the gamer and the beast will attempt to change the destiny of a world on the brink of extinction.
What's Hot: Players can scorch their enemies from the air with fire breath or crush them like bugs under your claws. Reviewers are raving that the gorgeous visuals give the game a cinematic feeling.
What's Not: Apart from the admittedly cool dragons, one may wonder if "Lair" has enough depth to hold players' interest? Doubts are also been raised whether using Sony's motion-sensing controller to steer the dragons will turn out to be as effective as traditional thumbstick controls.
