Sure this trailer is amazing. It is, it genuinely is amazing. It shows ample reason for any sane person to run out and buy a PS3. Itís beautiful and it shows off some fun new gameplay techniques to boot. Iím just not entirely sure how I feel about the whole thing. After all, you can make something look great in a trailer, but all bets are off once that thing is put in the hands of the gamer; No more video editors to make things look all polished.
For my money, no amount of amazing trailers replace a solid review. And so far the hands-on reports on Lair have certainly not been spectacular. I, myself, have not gotten a chance to get my hands on a preview build as of yet, but word amongst the journo types is that the frame rate chugs down to single digits when the action heats up. Itís also been said numerous times that the whole spiel just gets kind of old after 15 minutes or so. Weíll have to wait and see on this one to give out the official verdict.
