From what I’ve seen of various preview material around the net, this game not only looks fantastic, but has the potential to be a lot of fun. There are some cool game play elements like aerial battles with other dragons and the various tactics at your disposal that are used to thin out the enemy horde (knock them around, burn them to ash with fire breath or have your mount chow down on troops in order to replenish its own health) . There are at least three different “types” of dragons showcased in a demo that’s supposedly floating around, and the designers have mentioned that some other creatures will make appearances in the game (check out the picture below which features some kind of weird, bull-like monster). Nifty!

There’s another giant monster next-gen game coming out in 2007, this one for the PS3. Lair appears to be a weird cross between a fighting and war strategy game where you control a dragon rider and its mount- a winged, fire-breathing dragon- as you attempt to turn the tide of large-scale battles in the vein of the Lord of the Rings films.
