  1. If you have played the original Fable and still own an xbox, I would recommend waiting for the xbox release of The Lost Chapters. If you have not played Fable and won’t be disappointed by the relatively short time required to beat the game, then buy it.
  2. I hate to say this after being such a fan of much of Peter’s and the Lionhead Studios work, but once again Fable turns out to be nothing more than a legend.

    Fun and ambitious, but not nearly as substantial as it wants you to think it is. [Nov 2005, p.96]
  4. It's certainly one of the best RPGs out there and there's no doubt that some novices will consider it the best RPG they've ever played.
  5. The sound of a leather boot impacting a chicken, and the resulting squawks and flapping that result, must be heard first hand to be truly appreciated.

I've been playing it since it came to PC, and I have to say I enjoyed it even more than it's Xbox 360 sequel. The game is thrilling and open, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a great time!

Sure it failed to deliver the majority of what was promised but what we got I still feel is a great game. It's reasonably short taking less than 20 hours for me to 100% it but with the amount of times I've replayed it I probably have close to a hundred hours in this game. The flaws just don't bother me as it's clearly not meant to be a challenging game. The ridiculous economy means you can get super rich right off the bat and the supply of potions available in Albion means you're as good as invincible. But the game was still fun for me, if you don't take it seriously you'll enjoy it a lot more. Some people may have expected an Elder Scrolls like RPG but Fable is a lot more light-hearted I feel and it revels in it's hyper-clichéd storyline. I spent a good deal of time with Fable Explorer as well, the only game I've ever really bothered to do any sort of modding with. If it was fun pillaging villages with fireballs and hammers, try shooting 50 bolts of lightning from your hand at once or Berserking till you're taller than most of the buildings in the village. It may be good for reasons the developer didn't quite intent but it's still pretty damn good. Full Review »
