ProIt's a game, and you play it to give you pleasure

ConsIt's a game, so it will take up your life

Oh my goodness... a sequel that doesn't suck sliced lemons. This is a game that would be either revered as an awesome demi-god of action RPGs, or be reviled like a pile of cow pat diarrhoea melting in the hot sun. Luckily for me (and you) I like this game, therefore I am here to review this game...

“Absolutely Fableous?”

published 21/11/2008

ProOccassionally charming Action-RPG

ConsImplodes under the weight of its own ambition

Peter Molyneux and his Lionhead Studios had a point to prove with this sequel, as the whole 'choose your own destiny' virtual life shtick of the original Fable didn't seem to wash with either the gaming press or players, who found the whole experience not unpleasant but somewhat more shallow and...

“Fable 2 - Ab Fab?”

published 29/04/2011

ProHumorous, full of character and looks brilliant

ConsToo short, too easy and lacking in real substance

What makes a great Role Playing Game (RPG)? I have played many in my life (some good, most bad), but only two that I would consider great games; Shining Force 2 on the Megadrive and the awesome Final Fantasy VII on the Playstation. Fable 2 quite clearly has ambitions to be a great game; one would...

Enthusiastic producer Peter Molyneux brings us the sequel to one of the premier RPGs on the original Xbox, Fable. Despite having a lot of merits, Fable was unceremoniously crushed under the weight of expectation, victim of its own ambition: talking up a myriad of features, only to axe them one by...

ConsNowhere near as good as it pretends to be

Fable 2 is a fantasy role-playing game for the Xbox 360. I never played Fable 1 – I’d never even heard of it – but this was on special offer on amazon and one of my friends said it was good. I’ve been looking for a successor to Baldur’s Gate 2 for years now, and hoped this might be the one. It’s...

Albion is a really tough place to leave. Albion is overflowing with pubs and trolls, just like any decent fantasy world should, but its just more than that, the silly reactions you have with villagers, the way your dog hides his snout and wags his tale and the mean spirited gargoels just begging...

ConsA slightly weak storyline.

The original Fable was a game both powered and blighted by great hype, one that promised the world and fell short – but only just. Though a very entertaining, ambitious effort in its own right, it didn’t quite live up to the sky-high billing its enigmatic creator, Peter Molyneux, gave it. The...

Product Information : Fable 2 (Xbox 360)

Manufacturer's product description

Set 500 years after the original, "Fable 2" will provide gamers with an epic story and innovative real-time gameplay, including a massive amount of freedom and choice to explore a vast collection of dungeons, catacombs and caves in the world of Albion. Choices, consequences. The innovative gameplay pioneered in the original "Fable" provided gamers with a never-before-seen level of immersion in a truly interactive world. "Fable 2" expands on the scope and depth of the Xbox® classic with incredible new features and a wider, more complex kingdom of limitless choices and consequences. Players will have the option to play as a man or woman, get married, have children, and live a life of their own design. A land far, far away. Revisit the sprawling world of Albion, where every house, hut, dungeon and castle is for sale, more than 500 years after the events of the original "Fable." Players will witness how the world has grown and changed in incredible and unique ways as they rediscover Albion. New and unique combat system. "Fable 2" pioneers a new combat system that is designed to allow players to truly master hand weapons such as swords and maces, ranged combat such as bows and guns, and an entirely new magic system. These three disciplines, while being very accessible, are also amazingly deep and allow players to mix combat styles and become everything from a master swordsman or skilled ranger to an evil magic-wielder. A hero's best friend. This groundbreaking addition to the game is integral to the theme of unconditional love in "Fable 2." The canine companion will act as friend, compass and protector. Players merely feed their pooch and it will love unconditionally, creating a bond that sets up emotion-filled journeys throughout this magical world.
