  1. The new missions are great to play through, and it is exciting to see what the name of the add-on means, and to know that there has to be additional add-ons coming in the future.
  2. 80
    The new story elements, while brief, are still welcome, and features like the new dog types and the Colosseum will keep people coming back.
  3. See The Future offers great items, haircuts and even three new dog breeds, but as a game it is quite scanty. In a nutshell it is rather disappointing because some funny innovations can’t compensate for poor mission design.
  4. It boasts some great new missions and items alike, despite the lack of additional gameplay it brings.
  5. It’s hard not to feel sympathy for the funny concept of See the Future, but its main content it’s brief and certainly inconsistent. Amusing quests and its low price are the main reasons to pay attention to this.
  6. It's hard to hand out a recommendation for the content in Fable 2: See the Future considering how it seems to revel in pulling the plug on you, not to mention the fact that the glimpse of the future you get to see is fleeting and not at all memorable.
  7. A brief excursion back into the Fable II world. Not nearly as long as we would have hoped, though the low price tag makes up for that somewhat. The quests are more diverse than in the last DLC. Gives another reason to have a look back into Fable II, even if it is only for a few hours.
  8. Overall, the DLC is still short. One can blow through all the quests in two and a half hours. That being said, gamers who played Fable II, beat it, and enjoyed it, but ultimately shelved it after one play-through won’t find anything compelling enough to bring them back. Contrastingly, Fable II nuts will find a good excuse to jump back into one of the gems of 2008, and get a glimpse, albeit a short one, into what’s in store for the Fable universe.
  9. Fable 2 See the Future feels more of a package than the previous Knothole Island DLC and is another good reason to buy the main game or to revisit Albion.
  10. While See the Future undoubtedly delivers on its title, giving you a single feverish glimpse of a potential new direction for the series, this odd collection of entertainments offers far more than a mere early-warning hype machine dressed up with a few free haircuts for your dog. In its cheeky refusal to conform, it’s also a chance to see Albion’s present, and take another look at a game that’s both fascinating and gently flawed.
  11. While See the Future certainly lengthens the Fable II experience, it does little to expand it.
  12. 60
    The two new quests are fun, but the brevity of the download and the lame hint at the future left me feeling let down.
  13. Don’t get me wrong, See The Future is an enjoyable couple of hours, but for $7, you’re probably better off getting a goldfish … it might have more life in it.
  14. It's a relatively satisfying 3-hour adventure for around 6 dollars (540 MS Points). But if a continuation of the story is the only thing you're looking for, than you're better off waiting for the inevitable Fable 3.
  15. Hopefully the future of Fable won't be any more downloads, as this is another waste of both time and money.
  16. As a Fable II fan, it pains me to say this, but "See the Future" is a gauche and ultimately boring addition to Fable II.

    Fable 2's DLC See the Future is better than the other DLC offering Knothole Island, but still isn't a ground breaking DLC and isn't that great off an experience, ultimately the story is better than Knothole Island and is less repetitive, and gives you a look into Fable 3 which is really cool, but the price of admission is pretty steep, all in all i would recommend for at least one play through, but buy the platinum hits edition of Fable 2 if your interested in this.

    See the future was a exciting but short lived dlc, for the short while that i was playing it, it was actually very enjoyable with a good colour effect and fun dressing up but the difficulty was way too easy such as on the 2nd try i got the ultimate prize in the colloseum and beat the necromancer boss all too easily!

    Here's the secret to getting the most out of the Fable 2 DLC: bide your time. I got Knothole Island and See the Future the same day and just played the entire game through again with a new character. It made the entire experience better, and from what I see, made the DLC seem more worthwhile. As supplemental material as opposed to something to be taken on its own merits. Full Review »
