Sep 26, 2013Simply put, the best game I've ever played. This game may have not given me 500 hours of gameplay, but the 50 hours I played it through my childhood and adolescence have been the best gaming moments that I will never forget. This is how you make a video game, is exciting, interesting, fun, and just touches your soul.… Expand
NickH.Oct 8, 2005Go Lionhead Studios. Even if this game is rather short - but it's so damn fun you'll want to replay it a good number of times to get the full experience. Fun, that's not a word you hear a lot anymore in video-game-land. Everything has to be an immense challenge, graphically stunning, and introduce groundbreaking gameplay. Fable really has none of that, but it's a great time. You'll spend more time playing this game than any other game you've bought this year. Not out of an obligation to get your 50 bucks worth, but because you're having too much fun.… Expand
May 8, 2013I may be a little biased towards this game as it is one of my all time favorites.
My first encounter with Fable was on the Xbox, before lost chapters was released. Since then I have absolutely fallen in love with Lost Chapters. This is a game that I keep going back to and I have easily racked up 500+ hours in 8 years.
I love the fantasy play style with bows and swords being the main weapon of choice. This is definitely a game for anyone who is a huge fantasy geek! The three hero disciplines still give way to a huge variety of play through options if you have the patience to achieve what you set out to do. There are a lot of different weapons to play through with as a purist, or you can mix weapons with magic, or just go for pure Will power.
The world layout was perfect for what was needed, neither over, nor under doing it. Although there were only a few voice actors, the accents from all over Great Britain were very amusing and sometimes charming.
On the downside, there was a lot missing from Fable:TLC as well. Originally, the dog was supposed to feature in the first title, not the second. This was a last minute removal by Lion Head. There were also promises of plants growing in real time, seasons changing, children and families however, a lot of this was pushed into the second title. Being an old game, there are a few bugs. Tattoos will occasionally turn to green leaves on the skin and the eyes of the hero will turn a lime green giving a fairly eerie look. There are also numerous exploits, such as the Rose Cottage silver key glitch and the ransom victim age glitch. But these just add to the charm of the game, and if they were to be fixed, it would be turned into something new and strange.
Overall, I love this game and I imagine I will still put in a few more playthrough's before uninstalling. It is a game I will always go back to.
JoaoS.Sep 7, 2005Really great rpg very arcade gameplay and a good history.
Nov 30, 2013I followed Fable from the time Peter Molyneux began over-hyping it years before it was ever released. I was so excited to be playing a RPG that developed and grew. Where decisions were difficult and must be lived with for the rest of your life. All those things were a bunch of lies. This game is horrendous. You live a whole life in under a day of game time. You can beat this game in 8 hours, 8 hours! A RPG that took 4 years to make and none of the promised content present. Please never purchase a Peter Molyneux game. After all the lies gamers suffered from Black and White, Fable was the final straw for me.… Expand
