Re: Dragon's Lair

I picked this up about 15 years ago, which was made for DVD players at the time. I never really cared to play it on a remote like that because it just didn't feel right. So, tonight I decided to bust out Dragon's Lair and try playing it on Xbox 360 console and it was far more intuitive here which made for a better game play experience for me.

The game-play on the DVD itself is a master from the original Laser Disk game from the Arcade Cabinet in the 80's. There are some differences though. I would say about 95% of the moves are the same and translate well. It was such a trip to instinctively nail the moves without thinking from having them permanently embedded into my DNA from all those hours playing the game as a kid. The other difference is the on screen prompt that the original game did not have. Also missing were the Beep Sound FX that would signify when you made a move.

Just a really cool feeling to play Dragon's Lair on a huge TV screen. Up next is Space Ace, which I also bought the same day as well. A few years later, the company released a 20 Anniversary Edition Box Set that had Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp and Space Ace. I picked this up as well because the only way I could buy Time Warp was to get the Set.
