    Charming, fun, well-crafted open world, great atmosphere, interesting artificial intelligence and the broad spectrum that is the player controlled character is particularly intriguing. Too bad they stopped building on these algorithms in later Fable games.

    The lost chapters is a good expansion Fable, if you liked the original this a must have. Adds quite a bit to the game but it can leave a bit left to desire.

    This game is fantastic, even to this day. The combat is still solid enough to meet today's standards in well made games. There's plenty of different armor sets, and you can mix match. I played this game when it first came out, and I still play it today-- the story line is a gripping one, and lets you choose here and there what you want to do based on bad or good. Your appearance even changes due to the choices. There's multiple ways of making money for an Action RPG, from just killing monsters, to renting out houses and collecting the money. I have played all the Fables, and the first is still by far the best. If you haven't played it and are skeptical on buying it, I highly recommend this game. Expand

    I would like to start off by saying that, no matter what Moleneux says, Fable: The Lost Chapters is not an RPG (or at best, it is a very **** one). This is the first Fable game that I ever experienced and I must say I liked it a lot. It is definitely one of my most treasured games from my younger days. I say younger, I am still quite young. LOL SMILEY FACE FML LMAO et cetera. To the task at hand; What makes Fable so great? For me, I found that the whole world was quite amusing in a childish sense and that the story was wonderfully simple yet immersive. It is true that the story is very linear and that it is your bog standard "Tragedy befalls Protagonist, Protagonist Seeks Revenge, Protagonist Realises he has a greater purpose, saves world, END" story line, but the way it is delivered is so delightfully entertaining. The choices you make along the way, don't have a massive effect on the gameworld as promised, but they still make for some good entertainment in the short term, even if it is only cosmetic. The characters throughout the game are voiced well, though a little cheesy at times; this point is mainly aimed at piss annoying villagers. I especially liked the main character. Silent as the grave. The emotions system, that is in place of any real conversation, works as the in game jester; bringing joy to the user through way of farting. It is great for a while, but it doesn't take long before it gets old. Still it works well at amusing your mates every now and then if they pop round. As I mentioned before, Fable is not an RPG and it plays best to go into it with a mindset that it is an action game. In this sense it works well, as the combat is fun enough that it doesn't get too old before the game ends, but it is simple enough that the 10 year old demographic that mainly play this game can understand it. However, it is difficult to specialise in one type of combat (either Melee, Ranged or Magic) without getting completely slaughtered by your opponents, which ruins the RPG aspect of things. Other features like marrying villagers and buying housing are all a bit blah, so they are not worth talking about. Finally, one of the main gripes that critics made sure they pointed out, was that the original game was too short. I think this problem has been well addressed with the additional content that is offered in this game. Overall, buy this game if you are looking for a good 10 to 12 hour laugh. Don't buy this game if you bought the original and still own it; instead, either rent it or sell the old version and buy this one with proceeds. Expand

  1. The story is tightly linear, so it's hard to make your character's tale your own.
  2. This expansion adds a few sidequests and features, but doesn't do much else to address the original's shortcomings. Might be a fun choice for new fans.
  3. For gamers like me – who simply like to have a deep, challenging and fun romp through a mystical and medieval world – Fable fits the bill perfectly.
