Like most we have all had a go at factor5 and LAIR! and like most probably without even experiencing the game first hand... In fact it made a lot of our 'most over-rated / disappointing lists too' in a previous thread. But is it truly justifiably that bad ? Well I bought a copy off ebay dirt cheap (in fact shipping was more expensive than the game LOL) and I was prepared for a terrible game, but one that cunningly I knew I could trade in local more than I paid on ebay But to my surprise.... it aint as bad I believed it would be. Controls which have received the biggest criticism, well only two missions complete (excluding training) and it certainly isn't that bad. I've played much worse wii games with motion control. The ground control is it's Achilles heal control wise, but thankfully your not on the ground that often, and it certainly is better than the last rouge squadron game. Graphically the game is very sharp, looks very nice at 1080p and the frame rate is solid enough (strangely only slight stutter has been in a cutscene). Whilst yes the game certainly should never win game of the year award, in fact its not a great game true, but it certainly isn't as 'dire' as we were led to believe. I certainly have had more fun in the brief hour with Lair so far, than I did in the 5 hours of Heavenly Sword. It's definitely worth a rental and then maybe if you can get it cheap like I did ($12) a sound purchase for a few hours entertainment. So yeah... Lair not quite the turkey!
