    Fable was good, but Fable2....I really want that game so I can add more games for my 360. Other than that, Im slowly dying out of liking F2. I mean come to think of it, F2 doesnt look all that.

    This game is very good, great graphics,weapons, maps, ext. The only two things i dont like are the complicated menu screen and the story is way to short ... but otherwise its a great game, i highly recommened it.

    I really enjoyed this game untill I beat it in three days, this game was really short as was the first one. Fable suppose to be an epic so lionhead make it long as one please.

    Ok, i borrowed this game from my friend for the achievements, which are really easy, the game is REALLY EASY. With the combat all u do is mash X and B, and the cut scenes are way to long.

    Out of sheer tenacity, Im going to go ahead and say the original fable is a better game. It's solid, the story is awesome, and it leaves no loose ends. I like the world better too. Fable 2, while still being wicked awesome, seemed to focus more on what your character can do with his/her freetime, rather than what your character actually means to the world and the story. And while the map may be bigger, fast travel tottaly ruins it. And the ability to jump over the fences in 2 as opposed to 1 is irrelevant seeing as how nine times out of ten you jump the fence and run about ten feet either way and meet a cliff face or a forest you cant go through. Also, the story is lack-luster at best. Fable 2 would have been infinately better if the time period was the same. Right after Jack of blades is purged from the world. A story where Jack returns even more powerful than ever, and more menacing looking, would have kiccked ass. Fable 1's universe had the mideival fantasy feel to it, with true good and pure evil. Fable 2 reminds me of the 1700's. And really? temple of light and shadows? Skorm and Avo were so much better. The guns are cool, but the legendary weapons are super lame. And theres no armor... Also, massacering towns in fable 1 is STILL fun, that same feeling just isnt there for fable 2. And the spells, dont even get me started on the spells, in one word, LAMO. In more words, wtf happened between the spells in 1 and the spells in 2?! Peter Monyluex is a genious, I will say that, Fable 2 is great. But Fable 1 still has my vote, Fable 1 just gets you so much more immersed into the story, you character matters so much more, with good you can save the world, with evil you can rule it. Fable 2, your charaters deeds impact almost nothing but your apperance. Monyluex, please go back in time if you make a Fable 3.

    Eh it maybe deserved a 9.5...only thing ruining it were those horribly long load times
  • gonsas - January 10, 2009 4:35 p.m.

    i was rly very disapointed when i saw for the first time this game was goin out everywhere less pc ... fable was a pc plataform i rly didnt comprehend why it was released for xbox360 but ok ill wait till it comes out for pc have a good day everyone =) cumps..

    Wow, GR. Is Bioshock the only game you can give a 10/10?! Fable II deserves a 10 no doubt in my mind! Seriousley! Bioshock had its flaws and so does every game! Does that make Bioshock so special? No! Many other 9/10 games you gave deserve 10's also. I was waiting for Fable to get a 10...
