    The skill system still seems fresh, the battles run smoothly. And in the bizarre and brutal world of Fable I felt I was always at home. A worthy HD update to celebrate the 10 years anniversary, with a few technical problems.

The only real complaint is the bad mouse and keyboard controls in the menu which is not game breaking just annoying. Pick up a game pad to ignore all that, and enjoy this masterpiece. Expand

    Start menu is meh since you can't use mouse but whatever just start menu. You can customize most key binds if you take the time to simple goStart menu is meh since you can't use mouse but whatever just start menu. You can customize most key binds if you take the time to simple go to options while you are in game. I play with mouse/keyboard don't have any issues, only had to turn sensitive down on mouse. Graphics are set on low at first start up look great with everything on high. Some inventory stuff in game was sorta frustrating to switch between tabs (have to use numpad/usually number 4,5,7,8 to switch tabs). Overall though enjoying the game like I did 10 years ago. Expand

Someone please tell me the developers are playing a seriously out of date April Fool's prank on PC gamers? While the game LOOKS beautiful with the updated graphics they took a PC game with proper PC controls, ported it to a console control interface and then ported it right back to PC with a hideous console port controls setup. Seriously? No mouse support for menus? A, B, W, A, S, D, Tab, Insert, Home and End keys to navigate the game with no remapping allowed? WTH?

    To top it off, this is the official developer's response when questioned about the lack of proper keyboard and mouse support:

    Oman [developer] 7 hours ago
    We would have loved to add mouse support to the menu but we reached a point in the project where it was either going to be modding support or adding features such as mouse support in the menus. We chose modding.

    They apparently consider an appropriate PC UI to be a "feature" and not a necessity. This would have gotten at least an 8 or 9 because it does have much better graphics but they apparently have no clue about what is needed for a PC interface for a game. Stay away from this and stick with the original if you want proper controls. Should they fix the controls scheme I am willing to re-review this game. As it stands, the controls scheme and lack of remapping is intolerable for a PC game.

This is a console to pc port it's not as bad as dark souls but its close. You can edit the controls for the game once you get in it but the navigation of menus require u to use the arrow keys. Also the old TLC menu is gone and it replaced with a menu that is meant for a console they make you use keys that are all over the key board in order to navigate. I shouldn't have to press "Home, End, Page Up or Down" in order to view my quests. A Dark Souls port should not have been the goal here. I can even tell you a fix for the menu set Q and E to be section switches and have A and D change tabs. Or even better let us use the stupid mouse like really this is a PC game why can’t I use a mouse in the menus.
    The most annoying thing which needs to be patched NOW I'm surprised no one has complained about this. I can see that everything has higher detail the problem is the game literally has a film or haze over it. This film is both in the menus and the game. The graphics are maxed out so what is this film I'm seeing I spent hours messing with the settings it won't go away. I'm sure it's for depth on a widescreen TV. But I have a gaming rig and the screen is in my face I instantly notice haze and I know it wasn't in the first fable. It's so bad that I can't see any new real detail besides the game appearing to have more saturation. Honestly I thought to my self the whole time I was playing I should just load up TLC and play that.
    This game needs a huge menu overhaul and that Haze needs to be disabled. Unless you have a controller hooked up to your PC and don’t mind the haze wait till all of this gets patched otherwise you’re in for a huge disappointment.

In the end, give it a pass and give your money to a game company that deserve it (Microsoft you suck even more for not being able to even put in a freaking mouse configuration menu or a mouse cursor for menu navigation.)
