    Nice little game to break the monotony of fps, my wife loves it and we both get chieves....if you liked castle crashers you'll like this as well. easy achievements for the most part and excellent replay value

    I thought this was a fun game! I recommend this for anyone looking for a great multi player side scrolling beat em up adventure game! The whole board game feel in between levels reminds me a bit of Mario Party, and the pick up n play action is similar to Castle Crashers. This downloadable title may not be a masterpiece, but a well done, simple game! Worth the ten bucks for sure.

    Nice little game. The sort of game that is just pure fun with a group of friends. It's based on the Fable world (selectable characters, enemies, locations and even some of the humor) but it's obviously not a "Fable game" it's just a fun little (and cheap!) game on the side. Nothing particularly innovative but still very fun to play. The soundtrack is particularly good, the same sort of feel as Donkey Kong, just for that it is worth the £5/$10. I also enjoyed the way you "level up" where you roll a die and move round a board, each tile is a category of skills you can improve. Expand

    A really nice hack-n-slash game that introduces the Fable franchise to children. It borrows levels and enemies from all the Fable titles and allows those too young for the regular series to enjoy the world of Albion. The game has a lot of charm: the minigames. the ability board, the puppet theatre, the adorable art, the collectable characters, the chicken kicking all serve to make the game highly enjoyable, and the ability to transfer gold to Fable =: The Journey was a nice add-on. Recommended for children 6-10, or to those who just enjoy a good hack-n-slash. Expand

    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]

    Vaguely enjoyable. [Issue#86, p.101]

    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.
