  • Excerpt: What motivates a hero to do great things? A desire to do good? A lust for power? Revenge? It's a question you'll have to ask yourself as you adventure in Fable 2 , the sequel to Peter Molyneux and Lionhead's acclaimed, if somewhat overhyped, Xbox role-playing game.

Fable II

GAMESQUAD
3 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Whilst Fable II is not quite the finely polished experience you would expect given its triple A stature, it is utterly captivating in every other way imaginable. A stunning victory in some regards, it is safe to say Fable II may be one of the best games I've ever played.
  • Pros: Albion is a world flowing with character; beautifully realized worlds with great variety; a wealth of gameplay dynamics unique unto themselves yet brilliantly woven together into a whole; satisfying combat and character progression; excellent sense of pacing and reward.
  • Cons: Glitchy as all get-out; quest-ending bugs; level-structure feels antiquated in the face of large, open, streaming worlds which are increasingly the norm.

  • Excerpt: I'm sure you're probably familiar with the concept of dèjà vu , the existential feeling that you've seen or done something before. Well, playing Rome: Barbarian Invasion isn't quite like that.

Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: Overall, though, the job that Creative Assembly has done is imposing, and my verdict is that any true fan of the series would be foolish not to get the expansion. It's well worth "the price of admission."
  • Pros: Creative Assembly continues the tradition of quality expansion packs;
  • Cons: AI quirks, more versatility in terms of unit-based tactics would've been welcomed.

Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion Review

Eurogamer
30 September 2005
  • Conclusion: Why not a nine? As magnificent an example of the add-on pack as Rome is, it doesn't redefine the game completely in order to make it an absolute essential buy for anyone who was interested in the mother-game. It's an imaginative more-of-the-same, but still – at its core – a more of the same.
