Summary: On one hand this is the much loved classic Fable TLC with pretty new graphics. On the other though you'll be hard pressed to find a more buggy game. It has graphical abnormalities, random freezes, stutters, CTD's and once even BSOD'd. I've tried setting it to CPU affinity 0 since apparently it doesn't like multi core CPUs. I've tried disabling Xfire since it doesn't like multiple GPUs. On one hand this is the much loved classic Fable TLC with pretty new graphics.
Summary: I played Fable when it first came out and loved it. Comparatively anniversary is identical aside from upgraded graphics. Those upgraded graphics make the humans/semi human characters look horrible. Another thing is the extremely slow loading times. It can take minutes in between some areas. Then there is also a downside to the upgraded graphics.
Summary: This was better than expected. The updated graphics, the integration of the lost chapters and the ability to use the controller in ways the later games allowed makes this game feel like you are playing it again for the first time. Bought this along with the Fable Anniversary Guide and with XBox Glass makes this quite the awesome gaming experience.
Summary: I really love the Fable series and I very much enjoyed the anniversary edition. They added achievements and most of them are hilarious to read and lots of fun to get. All of the "bugs" that add to the game are still there, you can get endless money which means endless energy shield. Personally, I like that "bug". They did fix it so you can't just have villagers follow you outside the map, leave them there, and then buy their house with no evil points.
Summary: The only bonuses you get are items for your avatars, which comes along with three codes. You also get more items for start playing begin to the end, only 3 bonus. 1. Fable Anniversary t-shirt (for boy and girl avatar) 2. Bandit's Bandana and 3. Jack of Blades Mask In the ending, it doesn't matter if you choose to keep or throw the mask. You'll still had it. Happy gaming and had nice weekend!
loved the original, reboot has technical problems.

Summary: I love the original Fable. However, if they did a remake of it to make it prettier, it should run perfectly. It crashes. all. the. time. I have the original Fable, and because the reboot works so poorly, I feel frustrated I paid for a game I already have (unlike Halo Anniversary; which works flawlessly and is beautfiul). I was so disappointed in the quality of this.
Summary: I've always enjoyed fable I even thought parts of Fable III were quite funny if very brief; other reviewers wrote about glitches and yes there are those but I'm willing to work through them for a really fun game and the addition of new material makes it almost like playing it for the first time. I thoroughly enjoy this franchise and wish they would make more. It's worth it even if it freezes on occasion because the majority of the time it's just fun.
Summary: This game is great if you like single player quest games. The graphics are super. The character choices are good. Overall this is refreshing change from the army war games that flood the market.
Summary: I love this game, so any negative review from me is not due to that. However, I ordered a product labeled as "nearly new" and this came in a broken case and without the instructional manual it was labeled as including. The game works fine, and the manual isn't really necessary, but it was disappointing to have the product come not fully as described.
