A blast from the past
Yep, I was one of the kids dumping my quarters into Dragon's Lair when I was a kid. So, I was pretty amazed when I found that this was available for the PS3, which I had bought in March. It's pretty well put together, with EXCELLENT video rendering of the exact original game, and interesting commentary by Don Bluth and original developers. Cool footage shows how the video has improved over the years across several systems. My only frustration so far is that even on Easy, it's pretty tough, since you only get one shot on each sequence. Wrong move, and Dirk's dead. Plus, the game moves on to the next sequence without letting you try, try again to get a sequence right. Maybe you can set it to let you do this, but I haven't found any option like that. Overall, a neat pickup just for its nostalgic value.
