    A real disappointment,what were they thinking?Fable pub games is better than this garbage.Go back and play through Fable 2 or 3 again,that would be more enjoyable then wasting even 5 minutes or 5 cents on this.

    Six words: Like Castle Crashers minus the fun. If you haven't played Castle Crashers, then download that instead of this steaming pile of mundanity. If you have, then go and play it again rather than waste you time with this.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. After playing Fable 2 and not liking the ending of the game and playing through Fable 3 and again not liking the ending, I wanted to give the people of Lionhead Studios a second chance by playing the X-box Arcade game Fable Heroes. Throughout the game, the player is able to relive memorable places in Albion, such as Bowerstone, Mistpeak etc and not so memorable (The Credits). After completing the game, the player is able to play the same missions but under "Dark Albion" (like the events in Fable 3). This makes the missions harder and difficult enemies to defeat. Positives
    For an arcade game, the graphics were quite nice
    For fans of the series, they may like going through these levels again (as a puppet)
    All the money you have in the game can then be traded on to the next game of the franchise (Fable:The Journey)

    Negatives
    Nobody plays this game so it maybe difficult to get the online achievements
    The levels in the game are very repetitive Having "The Credits" as a level seems a bit cheap as they could not think of any other things to lengthen the game

    The Rating I would have to give Fable: Heroes a 3 out of 10

    Lionhead's attempt to make the Fable franchise accessible to younger generations doesn't hit the goal spot on. Clunky controls, boring combat and a character system that solely relies on luck aren't the best building blocks for a game for kids. If a parent take's part as an wingman, Fable Heroes offers relatively good fun for couple of hours. [June 2012]

    Almost nothing in Fable Heroes seems well-designed or carefully thought out. Its incoherent visual design is wrapped around a poorly-tuned beat 'em up with an obfuscated progression system, spiced with lousy mini-games. The total absence of story or even silly dialogue is likely to put off fans of the flagship Fable games, and without that draw it's difficult to see why anyone would bother. One or two interesting ideas poke through, but Fable Heroes is a failure.
