This game feels extremely similar to the second, but thankfully its still a fun and fresh experience. The graphics on this game are pretty much the same as in fable 2, they look beautiful, not extremely detailed but colourful and vibrant, unfortunately they do have blur problems when moving but a patch has cut them down. The cutscenes are a nice addition, but they make the game look very dated and buggy at times, and unfortunately the game is full of bugs, like hands going through people or having a axe handle on your back go into your head, this can break the immersion that the game usually does so well to hold and it often makes the game seem unpolished or rushed. The gameplay is the same as fable 2, if not a little more simple here and there, melee is the hardest combat system to use this time around as there is a bigger amount of enemies a time and they can swamp you while you stand there helplessly being pummeled to death, but its the coolest to use if used right, ranged is the in the middle area and is useful throughout the game and magic is the strongest, as if you just keep spamming strong magic spells, you can easily take out many surrounding enemies with ease... often without being hit... Again you can't actually die which takes the consequences of death away from the game and makes it simpler. The new expressions system is not good, just too simple, less choice and less freedom, you no longer have what was the already great expressions wheel, its just a new watered down version where you interact with people, and your given about 3 expression choices, which usually consist of hugging, dancing or pattacake... and as you can imagine, when going up to a serious straight guy and dancing with him, or playing pattacake with him, it just looks childish and a little odd and it just doesn't fit. Fotunately, In general the game is brimming with personallity, full of great voice actors and funny one liners. Great actors take huge roles in the game making some characters truly stand out or less of a pain, the humour is still there with some great quests, really great... some of my favourite from the fable games and usually well thought out. The story is alright, its short and feels a little rushed, and at times the missions boil down to 'go and get some seals' which is the new currency to upgrade your character, on the road to rule, which altough is a nice idea, it makes progression feel linear and its just there to make sure you don't get too strong too early. The second part of the story is great though, as being king, some of the decisions you make are great fun and make huge impacts on the world you rule... which is a standout feature, its just a shame it wasn't longer as its a little short being king and after a certain event, no more decsions seem to be there even though you are still wearing a crown and ruling albion, and also some missions while king feel a little silly, you could just get your guards to go and fetch a statue but they prefer the king does it. If you do what i did and do outside missions between the story missions it makes it a much more full experience and some of the side quests are just fantastic and should not be missed. The new map system is cool, it makes buying houses much more fun and easy but repairing them is a pain as there is 'no select' all option, and the 3D cartoon maps don't look much like the area at all, the new sanctuary and lack of menu's creates more problems than it solves really, the trail and dog are still buggy, being huge parts of the game its silly that they go wrong easily, and some bugs and glitches are far worse, some can end games, most are forgiveable but they annoy. However Fable 3 is still a decent game and worth trying out.
