But then the news came: Fable Anniversary was coming for the 360, and it would be a remake faithful to the original version! I was ecstatic, but I digress. You aren't here to read my feelings towards the game, are you?
The story is a rather generic story, with no definite elements to set it apart. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, because it plays like a good book. And even though the game is somewhat bland in areas, it still tends to stick out with the characters and their voice actors. The antagonist in the game serves their purpose well, and in turn helps make the story stick out.
The original looked pretty good for its time, and the remake does nothing but improve upon the original. The only complaint I have is that the game seems to chug sometimes, especially towards the beginning, and the game is not on par with other high-end games. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful game and a welcome addition to the 360 collection.
Depending upon your choice of control style, it plays like one of the previous Fables. However, choosing Fable 2/3 won't allow you to sheathe your weapons, so I stuck with the Fable layout. The games controls are pretty fine, and they don't feel overly dated.
The combat was rather easy, especially with a bit of practice, and the few puzzles in the game were easy as well. The game does reward you a bit with treasure chests and digging off the beaten path, but the chests tend to stick out, and the digging spots tend to be hard to find. Nevertheless, the game played well and did what it had to for an adventure game.
Fable was and is a great game, and if you liked the original then I'd say you should pick this version up as well.
I only gave this 4 stars because they made ONE CHANGE. Now, keep in mind that I am a diehard fan of the original game, so I was looking for something--anything--that may have been changed. There was! After you gather the six Treasure Clues to dig up the Frying Pan (you can dig it up early and get no augmentation slots at all), instead of giving 4 empty augmentation slots (the most out of any weapon in the game), it only has 3. That's only the equal of a master weapon! The Frying Pan is now just a cheap master weapon for augmentation nuts like me (who favors pure Will users), so my Will user is only 6/7 of his former glory... but in HD.
All in all, well worth the price put into it. All the complaints about lag are unfounded, as I run a first-generation Xbox 360 and experience tiny hiccups of lag right after loading screens that put me into really big towns. That's the worst they can throw at me. Occasional freezes, just like there are with all my games, and part of the problem with running a first-generation Xbox 360. I still have problems running launch-day games, but this runs great anyway. Anyone with a Slim or Elite should be able to run this with no problems whatsoever.
If you're new to the game you might actually enjoy it more since you weren't on the hype train the games creator was conducting before release the first time around. (Personally I didn't pay attention the hype so I didn't end up being disappointed the first time around). You can expect a strait forward adventure game with fairly linear progression through a series of main quests. There are a few fun side quests that are inconsequential to the; don't expect much meat beyond the main story.
The combat is simplistic, and stiff controls can make things frustrating.
You can whack enemies with a variety of melee weapons, expect the standard fare of swords each with a different speed, damage, and range/reach. Each weapon type can be made from a variety of materials that change their damage output. There are two varieties of ranged weapon, bow and cross bow, the cross bow causing more damage but being slower to fire. Both ranged weapons come in the same materials found in the melee weapons again affecting overall damage. There are a number of different spells as well, but trying to switch between them is just annoying enough that you'll likely pick just one spell you find to be particularly useful and never switch again.
Overall if you're looking for a quick romp through a fairytale turned video game you shouldn't be disappointed.
