Can't see where the poor reviews are coming from. LAIR has minor flaws, but it is incredibly enjoyable. Buy it!
The complaints I have about LAIR are very minor. I really wished it was a little longer. The targeting system on the controls needs some refining, but this did not hamper my enjoyment. There were some drops in frame-rate with some of the effects in the game.
If you have been on the fence about LAIR, definitely go get it. If you like innovative games, definitely pick this up.
