The first 20 minutes is spent steering the horse around obstacles, which is pretty boring, let's be honest.
But once you start learning how to cast different spells and begin fighting off Hobbes and Balverines it's a pretty fun game.
This isn't like the other fable games because it lacks the free roaming, which is an iconic feature that users have come to expect from fable games. So, as a fable game, it does not live up to the standard of the preceding games. In all fairness though, these games set the bar pretty high, and 'Fable: The Journey' is just a different way of gaming. They say that change freaks us out and I think that the response to this game gives credibility to this notion. But, if you were to compare Fable: The Journey to other kinect games, it becomes more obvious that this game is actually a decent one (it's definitely the best kinect game that I own). If you want a kinect version of fable II or III then I would not recommend buying this game. But if you have an open-mind and are prepared to experience the fable world from a different (more interactive) perspective, then I would give it a go.
It's not as comprehensive as the other fable games, and I think the bad ratings are more so from disappointed expectations then the game actually being poor. I tried to look at this game objectively, rather than expecting it to mimic the previous games, and I must say that I was satisfied with the outcome. I am positive that anyone else capable of doing this will be enjoy this game as much as I have.
On the plus side, I have never felt as part of the action as I have here. There is something seriously cool about using one hand to cast a spell to rip away an opponent's shield before blasting him with your other hand. A heck of a lot better than mere button mashing.
You also really do feel like you're riding your horse, and she takes on more of a life than your typical video game sidekick.
If it hadn't had the word "Fable" in the title I've probably have had an easier time taking it for what it was. As others have said, you make no decisions whatsoever, the plot is completely pre-programmed, and your course is completely set for you. While I can see that the interface imposed some limitations, there's no reason more plot variability couldn't have been programmed in.
The game was also too short (I know, I sound like one of those whiners, "The food was inedible and the portions were too small").
It really is a nifty interface (well, at least when the Kinect is working), it's just a shame they didn't to more with the plot variability.
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.Read more ›
The story hasn't been that interesting either. A young man (you do not have the option of choosing a character) that eventually meets Teresa and go on from there.
The first Fable I played was the third one, so I wasn't disappointed at it at all. Actually that made me buy Fable 2, and when I eventually bought Fable (the original one) it wasn't very fun as the graphics were quite old. So the fun about playing Fable is you making your choices, having plenty quests to do as you desire and making your own path. This Fable isn't that at all, so I do not like playing it. The only option you have is what you are going to upgrade and there are not many options. The chests are stupid. All you get is cards from stuff you've seen at the other Fables - A card of a pie, a dog ball, a gargoyle... So far I haven't seen a use to them.
The balls [I am sorry, don't know how to call those things you get that gives you experience (red, green and blue)] you just get them on the road and there's no difference. They all go towards the same thing that lets you upgrade something. The only difference is that according to the color you need a different speed from your horse to pick them. So that's another thing kind of stupid.Read more ›
