2.0 out of 5 stars They Should Have Named it Something Else..It is NOT Fable, October 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fable: The Journey - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
What I loved about Fable was the exploration and ability to engage a variety of characters and take many paths through the game. It is possible to have fun in the earlier Fables without even trying to "WIN". From the beginning this game did not engage me and I'll say up front that I HATE puzzles. They were not part of the earlier Fable. If you love your Kinect more than life and have a passion for horses you might find this game more enjoyable than I did. You get to brush your horse and care for it and worry over it...but by and large there are only so many places you can go and ALL are controlled by the game. And add to this list of woes that driving a wagon gets very very OLD. No exploring that isn't completely scripted in advance. This also means that once you play it you are done with it unless you want to go back for the arcade version.

The earlier versions also had so many cool things that were of interest to women players...not the least of these was to actually BE A WOMAN and interact on an emotional level with characters. Sorry but puzzles just don't do it. They have no emotional appeal at all for me, and that was what I loved about Fable. It wasn't just about murder and mayhem like the majority of Microsoft's games. It had heart level interaction and character. This has NONE of that.

I should have noticed that this was a Kinect game when I bought it, but then I have seen Kinect do some nice things in other games. I have exercise Kinect-based games that allow a huge range of movement and work very well. The use of Kinect here is limited to commands best left to a game pad and the game is "REDUCED" to the limitations of the Kinect menu rather than enhanced. I waited MONTHS for this game and feel robbed. If you are a devoted fan of the series make sure you play with someone else's copy before you drop the bucks on this. I find it to be an abysmal end to a great series. I'm going to reboot Fable III and have some REAL fun. I still play the earlier versions. This one is going to be sold or traded ASAP.
