I feel ripped off,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fable: The Journey - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Fable is about meaningful choices. Kinect is a product about freedom to control a character beyond the limitations of a controller. You put the two together and somehow you get a game about driving a cart down a road collecting dots Pac Man style interspersed with cuts scenes and rail shooter fights, but never with any meaningful choice. As a gaming consumer I should not have made a purchasing decision off of the reputation of the game world nor the potential of the technology used. Making a snap purchase decision to pre-order was my mistake. But seriously, is this the best that developers can do? When working with a technology that continuously tracks the 3-dimensional location of a player's head, hands, and feet the best they can figure out to do with it is a rail shooter? Are developers that stuck on button-pushing games that they just can't think farther outside the button-pushing box than this? I can't play it. It is too depressing. I'll be trading it in for something that at least doesn't make me sick to look at it.
