    It's not terribly long, but long enough. The quests are interesting and the new swag is pretty sweet. Not to mention that the various alteration potions you can acquire are a nice touch. *spolier* i love getting my dog back and the fact that I can have expert skill and not have be a 6'6" hulking she-male! Worth 800 for those that love Fable2; iffy for those that are casual fans It's not terribly long, but long enough. The quests are interesting and the new swag is pretty sweet.

I'm in the first camp so it was points well spent. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. And the best part about it is that you can get your dog back by going to the left of the chieftens house and sacrificing someone in the crypt there. all you require is the DLC, or game of the year edition, someone willing to follow you, get close to the crypt (they will walk in automatically) and pull the lever and hello, Fido Expand

  1. Fable II: Knothole Island is a short but satisfactory pack that expands the scope and depth of the Fable 2 good experience.
  2. After all your patient waiting, in about four or six hours you will finish all that Knothole Island has to offer, Box of Secrets included. After that, you’ll be left with buyer’s guilt because you’ve just spent 800 points on something worth half that. You’ll feel silly, and your Fable 2 experience will be tainted accordingly.
  3. I certainly enjoyed the quest, brief as it is, and for all its flaws I was happy to be lured back into Fable's world after a few months out. But I was still left underwhelmed once I'd sucked all the new content dry though. Worth experiencing for the Fable faithful? I'd say yes. But is it worth 800 Points? Probably not.
