On the exterior it's a beautiful game, also the characters are well animated, and the vibrant and colorful worlds immerse you and it's one of the best looking titles available currently on the Xbox. Besides some frame rate hiccups and awkward lip-syncing this is pretty flawless.
This wouldn't mean anything is fable wasn't fun to play, And not to worry - it is. The combat here is real-time, the easiness in switching to magic, archery or sword fighting is superb. That's another interesting point, you can play fable in a lot of ways, Primarily being your choices versus good or evil, unfortunately I never felt awfully inclined to be either, If I was evil I never felt revered, and if I was good I never felt acclaimed. There are several side paths to do, marriage, mini-games, and chicken kicking... It leaves a lot to do, but even with all that it only adds a few more hours to the already seemingly short experience, which might be discouraging.
Sound effects here are well done, The game has a cinematic ambience, The music is great, as is the voice acting. Your hero of course is mostly nameless (Though you are usually referred to by your "Nickname", which is easily changed at a shop, and even then It's a limited selection) Still I can't say anything bad here, except for some repetition on certain aspects.
In the end Fable is fun, and this shouldn't be passed up. Though fable might not be as groundbreaking as hoped it would be it's still great. With the replay value and open-ended nature here you'll end up playing it through twice at least.
I was not dissapointed at all.
I can agree with many of the reviews offered thus far, yes, it is a little bit too short, and there are not nearly enough side quests of miniquests. But I have a feeling that is something that will be worked out when the sequel comes out. Also hoping for some live based missions or larger world maps to rival the everquest crowds or the FF platforms.
Simply put, I really enjoyed this game, and recomend it to anyone who is into fantasy based levelers.
What I liked the most:
Great design: The maps were great! very well drawn, and realistic. Felt like there was alot more to explore, but there wasn't.....
Good action: The fighting was never booring, unless you get too strong on the powerups....but there was always a few suprises that cought me off guard.
The whole morality driven character design, great. Could have used more options and finess, but it's great fun to play this game from multiple vantagepoints. Being good is fun, but being evil....well we all know that's even more fun.
I got a bit addicted, (as in real life) to giving my character tattoos..... they really do affect the way your character is percieved. And, just like in our reality, some tats are just dumb. A neat little feature is that when you get them revomed, you get white scar tissure where the old tat used to be. Same with battle damage, or torture scars, they mess with the ink jobs.Read more ›
Complete a lifelong journey from childhood to the grave. Fighting your way through life and solving the mystery of your family. The game changes with your every move....
The game sounds very good, but when you start to play, you realize that your childhood lasts about 20 minutes, and your teenage years last about an hour. So really the game of a life journey can be decieving.
But all that aside, the game is very exciting; increasing your character's attributes ranging from how strong they are, to the many magical spells you may cast. Determining if you would rather travel down the path of good or evil. Marying a woman....or even a man (the character is a boy)?!?!
Quests give you the ability to earn gold and experience points to level up your character to fight the toughest guards, theives, monsters, and even the undead. One issue that I do have with teh quests are that there is a golden icon that leads you to the path in which you are supposed to take to complete the quest. So, in other words, the quests are laid out to you with no questions or concers; except defeating those that stand in your way.
One portion of the game that does keep your interest is the ability to party til you puke, that's right, your character can get so incredibly drunk that he will actually vomit! Be careful though, because if you want to marry, you must present yourself in a well manner.
I would advise any RPG fanatic to pick this up off the shelves immediately and set some time aside for this game.
