A epic storyline and a thrilling adventure. The graphics are great and the interaction is good. Rockstar just need to work better on the lighting. Much better than Fable.

  A classic piece of escapism from lionhead

Fable 2 is a superb game, and at 8.99 Play.com are giving it away.

The Fable series is the reason I got an Xbox 360 instead of a PS3 (boo hiss!) and I was not disappointed by this game. Set in a period which few games have ever ventured, Fable 2 explores the period of the late 16th Century to the early 1800's. You will find flintlock muskets and pistols at your disposal, as well as the more traditional hand to hand weapons such as saber's and axe's . Of course being the Fable series you will also be able to use spells and the like.

The story line is superb and it oozes classic Lionhead in that there is witty and eloquent dialogue, spoken by some superb British actors (Steven Fry plays one of the lead characters) . Fable 2, like its predecessor, shows us a lighter "diet" version of an RPG, perhaps not as engrossing as Oblivion or Fallout but even better entertainment wise.

You don't have to be an RPG lover to play the game as it can just be turned into a slash and hack, however you'd be missing out on some brilliant and funny features such as buying a house, taking a wife (or many), having children and of course getting stone drunk.

This game gave me hours of fun and I thought it was good value at full price, I even completed every single quest to complete the game 100%, something i'd never done on another game! I eagerly await Lionhead's next installment, if it's anywhere near as good as this, Fable is well on the way to becoming the best RPG series of all time.

This game is Amazing.
u can use spells, arrows and sword... and u can also work to get more money, but is no point of doing it. way for money = Rent.
and the storyline is quit good as well.
but, (yes it most have a but) the game is very easy! I didn't die at all.
So my dear friend "Peter Molyneux" u get a 4 stars.

Fable 2 is a great game. It has beautiful graphics and a great world to explore. The system that your character changes due your action is great since you can have a lot of different appearances. Although the one who like to edit their character from the beginning might not like that. It has plenty magic skills to use and nice side quests that grabs you in! A nice play!

  great rpg

| | See all GodOfGaming's reviews (52)

This game is great i have had it since launch and its still fun to play. there is lots of things to do appart from the main story line such as chopping wood and mini games like that which are wuite addictive. There is so much to do such as buy furnature for your house, buy property to sell of or rent, build a family and have a baby the list just goes on. And now it is just 9.99 which is a steal and a no brainer if your thinking to buy this game. The story line is great the graphics is good and i love the adition of having a dog as his best friend.

  Brilliant but massively Flawed

This Game is without doubt one of the most enchanting and enjoyable games i have ever played. Graphics are great but nothing special compared to many games but its the gameplay that shines. The music really sucks you into the world and the characters are likable, I really did love this game. So why only 3 stars? well its all down to the glitching, crashing, corrupting save data and what is referred to as the black screen of death. I spent 9 hours playing this game only to find when i loaded my save data i had nothing but a black screen and could hear the town folk going about their business. After looking online i found many people having the same problem but found no solution to this other than to send off for a newer disc for 10 quid which i refused to do as the game was brand new. Instead i started the game from the beginning and 5 hours later the same thing happened. I now refuse to put any more time into this game. The game creaters have not sorted this problem nor replied to my numerous emails so i am basically stuffed. there are plenty of cases of game crashes and freezing online so i really cant understand why this has not been fixed. This game would have easily entered my top 20 games of all time had it not been for this problem. my advice is to buy this game as cheaply as possible (play have it at a good price) to experience the game but expect problems with it. dont believe me? google Fable 2 Crashing, black screen, bugs etc. maybe i have been unlucky or maybe some of the other reviewers have been lucky. either way Fable 2 was a big disappointment

the game itself was actualy really good, the gameplay was great fun and the storyline and choices that could be made were good aswell. But the most dissapointing aspect of the game was that it was far too short. I bought this game a while ago when it first came out and to be honest it wasnt worth the money, but now as its around 15 pounds id say its a good buy.
