House Arrest: Killing Time Killing Everything

Lair comes to the PS3 from the amazing developers at Factor 5. With tons of experience making games for the Star Wars franchise, Factor 5 knows how to produce an epic war game filled with spectacular battles and hardcore action. Lair breaks away from space and heads back to a mythical time and place where wars are constantly waged and the heroes are warriors with specially trained dragons. Dragons and wars can get cheesy quickly, but Lair is spectacular looking and rich in detail, accompanied by fierce aerial and land combat. War is a mean, nasty business, and gamers get to be a medieval action hero taking on enemies with moves like jumping from one dragon to another during mid-air combat or swooping down on legions of enemies to blast them with fireballs.

Integrated into the gameplay are the new Sixaxis controller's motion sensors so that aerial combat and maneuvering the dragon in flight means tilting the controller in the direction needed. Tilt it left or right to turn the dragon, and up or down to control height. When combat gets heated, sharply turn the controller to bash into other dragons or maul enemies by hacking and slashing them with your dragon's claws.

A deep storyline provides the dramatic background for the wars, as gamers work tirelessly to defend their civilization from relentless attacks of enemy armies. The scope of the battles is huge, and dragons aren't the only fantastic creatures in this medieval-like world, and players can count on different monsters to take part in the action throughout the game. Lair is a cool-looking game that strives to take players on an epic journey to a mythical world filled with warrior dragons and intense combat; it succeeds easily on both levels.
