Why Fable fans need to get on with The Journey

OXM - Fable: The Journey is a lovely game. It's also an incredibly perverse one, a franchise reset which makes such eye-popping change-ups as a motion-sensitive Steel Battalion seem the height of conservative thinking. There are familiar elements - hokey accents, spells, moral predicaments and Zoe Wanamaker's blind seer Theresa, husking away to the rear. But in place of the freedom older Fables afford, you've got the gentle racing rhythms of horse-drawn transport, and on-rails dungeon escapades which pan out like a Mage Guild's take on Time Crisis. (Fable: The Journey, Xbox 360)

It's genuinely a lot of fun. Even the hand-wavey magic combat, which I was expecting to be shonky and rubbish.
