Conclusion: Ainsi, le joueur pourra explorer une forêt luxuriante, une vallée enneigée, des plaines désertiques et hostiles ou encore des égouts insalubres. Ces lieux seront bondés en ennemis qu’il faudra combattre coûte que coûte. Les combats sont toujours aussi simples et basiques, ils dépendent foncièrement de trois armes : l’arme blanche, l’arme à feu et les sorts magiques. Pour s’en sortir, le joueur peut améliorer ses compétences et se procurer un armement supérieur.
Pros: L'univers artistique, Le mode co-op fonctionnel, Les graphismes supérieurs
Cons: Trop simplifié, Adaptation maladroite, Quêtes secondaires parfois inutiles
Conclusion: It’s very clear right off the bat that Fable III is a game designed with accessibility in mind, but its accessibility has come at an obvious cost. Almost every feature of the game has been made to be easier to use, depth has been stripped down to the bare essentials, and even the story seems to take a back seat, with the plot being linear, underwhelming, predictable and anti-climactic.
Excerpt: As Fable 2 skipped an appearance on PC, the last time I was thrust into the world of Albion was many years ago. I remember it as quant little "My first RPG", a sort of primer for kids that introduced them to basic concepts of leveling up, action-RPG combat, and the hero archetype including quests and a morality scale. It was shallow as all hell, but so unassuming that you had to appreciate the cuteness of it, even as you looked forward to much better RPGs on the horizon.
Conclusion: Catherine ’s appeal to Western gamers is certainly niche, but a recommendation for it couldn’t be easier. With a mature and adult story line paired with the addictive and deep puzzles, Catherine should not be overlooked. While the difficulty might turn away some, Catherine is one of the best games this year so far.
Summary: Lionhead’s Fable caught on fast. Three games in, it can easily be grouped together with Xbox’s most definitive franchises. Fable II decidedly improved on the first title and Fable III aims to take it even higher, having you start a revolution and eventually rule the world. It’s certainly a bold move to try to make the scope of Fable larger, but they’ve continued to do so, as this is one of the best RPGs to be released so far on Xbox.
