Dragon's Lair on Blu-ray Disc is without question the finest reproduction of this beloved adventure, but it's a pricey pick at $50, not to mention the game can be completed in less than half an hour if you know all the moves. But nostalgic gamers who own a Blu-ray player should enjoy this disc and its supplemental material -- if you haven't already purchased any of the other home-based versions.

The experience is short-lived, but if you remember feeding the arcade machine just to see what fate awaited Dirk around the next corner, here's your chance to see Dragon's Lair with the best possible visual treatment. The MSRP of $39.99 is a few quarters too many (gamers can score brand-new, full-fledged games for that price), but if you look around you can easily get it for a more affordable price.

Dragon’s Lair falls flat on its face. However, I’m grading it as short film because, when you get down to it, that’s really what it is. Fans of the arcade original will clamor for the developer interviews. The creator commentary and high-def video – and being able to play the disc on any Blu-ray player (not just a PlayStation 3) – are sure to win over those who purchased the last high-def version. But the jittery scene transitions and unimproved gameplay will not win over anyone looking for a new PS3 game

Unfortunately, if you're not already a fan of Dirk and Daphne, you may as well steer clear of this title. For the hefty price tag associated with it, there really isn't enough to Dragon's Lair in our day and age to warrant buying it (or even renting it for that matter). For those however, who fondly remember paying 50 cents to play it in arcades, you may want to see what modern technology can accomplish with a pioneering endeavor like Dragon's Lair; not only has it never looked better, but the branching is seamless and the extras a probably worth their weight in gold. A very mixed review depending on your age and experience with Dirk, but in any event, I'm sure we'll see him and Daphne yet again on the next generation's consoles.

A great looking but pricey reissue of the infamous arcade game. It's slightly easier to play thanks to additional cues, but as classically frustrating as ever and somewhat glitchy on some Blu-Ray players.
