5.0 out of 5 stars I don't know what you guys are talking about June 20, 2007
By Jake D.
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This BluRay version is INCREDIBLE. I have read some of the reviews that people have posted so far, but I find they are quite innacurate.

First of all, it LOOKS amazing. It is crystal clear, and in widescreen format. I don't have a surround sound set up, but it sounds great through stereo. It DOES have the little BEEP and BOOP sounds to let you know if you did the right action, just like the arcade.

Secondly, the concerns of the first reviewers are pretty inaccurate, because their complaints can be fixed by adjusting the 6 or 7 settings that can completely change the gameplay experience. I haven't gone through all of them, but here is what I have found so far:

HOME vs ARCADE: I haven't gone in depth yet, but when I had it on Arcade mode, it didn't start at the moat/drawbridge scene. On Home mode it DOES start there, which is how I'm used to it, so that is how I have it set. I assume that there are other differences in scene order, although aside from the beginning scene, the scenes are random.

EASY vs HARD I starded the game on easy, and it seems like you don't really have to bother that much with timing, and it is more forgiving with mistakes. Hard is VERY time specific, and you can't really make many mistakes before hitting the right button, just like the original. Fantastic. I'm getting my butt kicked. :)

SIGNALS You have an option to turn on visual clues. Haven't bothered with this yet.

There are some other settings like unlimited lives verses 5 lives, and other stuff I don't remember at the moment, but basically they drastically change the playing experience. You can tweak it to be exactly like the Arcade, or maybe taylor it more to the version you like best.

Would you like to see a cartoon character die in dozens of comically gruesome ways, again and again? Then this is for you!

Are you a fan of former Disney animator Don Bluth ("The Secret of NIMH," and "Pete's Dragon" are most illustrative of his style)? Then this is a must-have!

Are you looking for a cutting-edge game with retro roots to play on your Playstation 3 console? OK, give this a try -- but be careful. If you're under the age of 30 or so, you're unlikely to put up with this old style of game.

This game was a revolution back in 1983 when it launched in arcades. It was simply stunning to see branching digital video in this pseudo-interactive form back then. The novelty wore off quickly when the game's high price and limited replay value came through, though. At fifty cents a play, it was a better deal to watch someone else suffer through the trial-and-error gameplay while you watched the beautiful video.

The game has never looked better. This edition is leaps and bounds over any other edition yet released, and there have been dozens, including platforms you'd never think would work, such as the black-and-white Macintosh on multiple floppy diskettes, the GameBoy Color, and the low-color, screen-door graphics of the Sega CD. Even the original LaserDisc and deluxe DVD editions are trumped here.

Controls are fast and responsive, and the gameplay is true to the original The original scene selection order has been preserved and the controller timing feels accurate to me. You can play with your Blu-Ray remote or a Playstation 3 controller if you're on that system.

Sadly, while it's beautiful and is the best version of the game yet, it's not perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Arcade Perfect on PS3 November 12, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't believe the reviews about this not working with PS3. I played through the whole game last night and it was the best version i have ever played. It looks better than the arcade version. The detail and color in the backgrounds are astoundting. If you ever played this game in the arcade you will love this.

Adding to the awesome trasfer of the game (which includes all stages!!! even the flipped ones!!!!) you get come really cool interview and commentary videos. The coolset thing I found in any of the interviews is that Don Bluth is trying to get funding to do a 2D animated Dragons Lair feature film!!!

If you are reading this review just buy the game, you wont regret it.

MAAAN!! I remember when I first bought the dvd version of Dragon's Lair, IT SUCKED!!!! The graphics were a little blurred, there wasn't too much special features, AND each time I did the wrong or correct move the game paused itself for 2 seconds. THAT GAVE ME HEADACHES!!!

BUT THIS VERSION!'s the one I been looking for. There are many special features (including the "watch" mode), you can set the game in different ways (ex. arcade mode or home mode, hard or easy, infinite continues or 5 lives, and set a warning that will make you know that you did the right or wrong move), the game doesn't pause when you make the wrong or correct move. Also, the graphics are remastered and so the sound.

NOW!! The bad rumors are truth. The game glitches every time you lose by sending you to a random stage, BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME! because you still must pass every stage to get to the dragon, so it doesn't matter if the stages are random you still are playing the game as it should be. Besides, if you need more practice with the same stage you can press main menu to star again from the begining.

P.S: I don't know why some people say that this Blu-ray disc doesn't run on the Playstation 3. I been playing this game for several times on my Playstation.

The classic video game is cracked open and completely revealed. Play, watch and learn. The documentary features are light but informative. Fun.

Just like I remembered it. The graphics are fantastic. If you enjoyed the original arcade game, you should love the Blu-ray version. I have no complaints.
