I owned the original xbox fable. Issue with running under win64 systems
3 weeks ago
Summary: The game is exactly the original xbox fabel that includes the added content with the lost chapters. May take time adjusting to using a keyboard for movement as opposed to the xbox controller. Major issue comes with running this game on a 64 bit OS (win7x 64 bit or win 8). You will not get it to launch and it has been reported on a number of forums.
Summary: I love this game and the series, so I didn't think twice about buying it. I'm not sure if its my computer or the disk, but the fourth disk in the sleeve made an awful noise and wouldn't finish downloading even after 45 minutes of waiting. I tried it in my boyfriends computer and it made the same noise after a few minutes, so I'm thinking the CD is warped. Could just be my own copy, but keep everything just in case you have to return it.
Summary: This video game was not to bad but did not seem to meet the expectations set by the previous games. The graphics are very well done but if your buying this for a computer without a mouse, you will have some difficulties navigating.
Summary: I have been on a quest. A quest to find the next RPG that was as deep, complex and engaging at Planescape Torment. After a brief stop in Fable's world of Albion, my quest continues. It's not that Fable is a bad game. The game has a lot more character than a simple hack and slash like Diablo. The graphics are good, the music is great, the voice acting is decent and the game is engaging. It just feels like it could have been so much more.
Summary: When I bought it I was hoping for Morrowind with more features. What I got was a very pretty game, with some new features, but was too short, didnt have enough story, was way more linear than advertised, was too easy and too expensive. When I finished I didnt get that satisfied feeling like I normally get after finishing a good game or a good book. I will probably only play through it once more just to see the other ending.
Excerpt: Fable is not an RPG that re-invents the wheel; it is not the groundbreaking RPG that Final Fantasy 7 was, but it is rather fun and brings a welcome level of customisation that the genre has not as much seen before. Primarily the game is an action RPG, and although it is rendered very minor due to its short play time and light tone, it is still an entertaining game even if it will leave you wanting a lot more for your money.
Worth a rent to experience the customisation you actively take part in.

Excerpt: Every game and movie has a hero, wether good or evil. But how exactly did they end up that way? Well, with Fable, you get to experience this firsthand. You begin as a child whose family gets killed when his village gets attacked, but what happens next? Well that's up to you. Do you become a noble warrior, vanquishing all evil? Or do you become evil itself; murdering and stealing your way to power? Or do you do a combination of the two?
