Not a building block for the PS3, NOT a failure

A lot of people were very disappointed by Lair, as was I, but maybe that's because our expectations were so high. Maybe we thought this would be a classic. Maybe we thought it would be amazing.

Its not all that bad as people make it out to be. The concept is great and the cut scenes set up good episodes in the game. It is actually very addicting, especially when you really get into the roll and flow of the game.

It is a solid game and should be seen as small supporter and not an attempted building block to the PS3's success.

Sadly the end result is quit...

    Lair was released back in 2007 and planed to be one of the Playstations 3's exclusive flagship titles, but turned out to be the game that bankrupted Factor 5 in the end. The game follows straight into the footsteps of the earlier Factor 5 games such as Rogue Leader, just instead of having a Star Wars setting, the game takes place in a fantasy world filled with dragons and other mystical creatures. This by todays standards seems a little odd, as most games today have moved away from the ...
