Summary: I really looked forward to this game. I loved the first Fable and still play it once in awhile, so the sequel was top of my list for new games to buy when it came out. I was very disappointed! Some of the best things about the first Fable were absent from the second. Molyneux explained a couple of these-1) the mini map has been replaced by a golden trail you follow along the ground. The reason for the change?
Summary: This game has way too many glitches. I wish I hadn't paid $60 for it!! It's fun, but the glitches are so annoying and consistent that it's not worth it. They should have waited to release it until they were fixed (I'm sure the testers had the exact same errors that everyone else is getting) and yet it was still released...the first Fable was much better, it had a few bugs but nothing compared to this.
Summary: So there I was--at the end of the main story. I had become a powerful warrior and a true saint, complete with a bright halo above my head and blue eyes. I had "climbed the dizzying heights of celebrity," as one villager told me. Now, it was time for my skills to be put to the test, a moment when I thought to myself, "The finale is going to be brilliant. It just has to be! Okay, so maybe the rest of the story was a little bland, and the characters were uninteresting..
Summary: Fable's greatest criticism was how short it was, and simple. A short, hack n slash RPG. No different here. In fact, this sequel is even shorter than the first Fable, you blink once and you'll miss the entire story. The main quest is like an 11 minute episode on Adult Swim compared to a one hour drama. It's short, way short. The story itself is poorly put together and lacks any depth.
Summary: I'll try to write an inclusive review, but the short of it is that the storyline is very narrow, the game is glitchy, and the last guy (Lucian) can be defeated by pressing one button. First off, I was waiting for this game for years and was very excited about it. The game itself is vey similar to the first and claims to be 10x larger in terms of the map, but it certainly did not feal that way.
Conclusion: over rated and under weight! Though many seem to think this game is a second coming I found it light weight and sorely lacking in difficulty, options, spells, weapons and missions. Grafics are barley an up grade on the last game. It does not really compaire to FFVII! When you stand it next to Oblivion it pales like a sickly child Anyone who has not yet played that epic would do well to rent it. rather than waste time on this. except the dog I liked the doggy.
Summary: Fable 1 was a great game. Fable 2 isn't. Mostly because you can't die. it ruins the game. on the one hand, there is no challenge. And on the other hand once you've been knocked out once you feel like you are cheating the game by carrying on. I played it for hours to get to a sequence in a prison. In escaping the prison i was knocked out. and that's that. couldn't be bothered to finish the game. very sad.
Summary: It has great graphics, no doubt about it. But it has a very short and weak story filled with forgetful characters that the gamer can never truly develop with. The combat system is very flawed and bias in that guns are very overpowerd, frankly they're the only weapons you will ever need. The spell system has been vastly downgraded from the first Fable game.
