Has The Journey betrayed Fable? Lionhead tackles the biggest fan fears

OXM UK: "What's happened to traditional Fable, with its open-ended vistas, skilfully blended third-person combat and full RPG trappings? Where's the morality system gone? How come my dog has hooves and a mane? Is Lionhead really moving the franchise on, or is it simply treading water?"

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd still prefer another classic open world Fable.

SleazyChimp1413d ago

Me too! I imagine its hard to have an open world when the main character is stuck on rails. I'll bet this flops like a fish. Hopefully they'll have a real fable ready for the next console.

Don't worry they'll go back to what Fable was about after this comes out...this was Peters horrible vision for Fable not Lionheads.

I'd much rather play a full Fable game, but its obvious Lionhead is working on a new Fable game, possibly MMO on the Xbox 720.

I have no problem with a first party studio working on a Kinect game, seems like this one has been in development for years now, so it might be decent.

They have already stated that this game isn't in any way involved with the Fable series that we have all come to know and love. Aside from it being in Albion, its something totally different.

most of the hate is usual fan hate so thats expected.

ChunkyLover531413d ago

A lot of the hate is just spilled over hate that people have for Kinect. Its not a Fable game that ties in with the rest of them, so it doesn't really matter to me. I'd rather wait and get a next gen Fable that was done right, then a quickie like Fable 3, although I still enjoyed Fable 3.

everyone just needs to calmdown theres gonna be another fable so calms down even bungie experimented with the halo series once in a while .
