Fable The Journey impressions: for every motion, a consequence | VG247

Fable: The Journey is another chance for Microsoft to prove Kinect’s worth to the hardcore. VG247′s Dave Cook plays the first three hours and explains why swapping morality for motion isn’t all that bad. (Fable: The Journey, Xbox 360)

Same situation as with holding a controller, either pause the game and scratch or take the ultimate risk and play and scratch simultaneously!

Cant wait to get this game on Tuesday! Microsoft must love making me poor!

No Fable game I've EVER played carried out as extreme consequences for my actions, as they market the game to do!

I really loved Fable 1 but the passion was lost for me in 2 and 3...

Yeah, I really loved the first one. Who was the bad guy, Jack of Hearts? Great game. I thought it was pretty unique how your character aged. MS should do an HD remake for that game. Fable 2 was alright, but I didn't finish it. Haven't played 3 and most likely won't play the new one.

Fable 2 wasn't bad, three was a disappointment. This game has me worried. First fable game I could care less about.

I preferred #3, it just felt more polished overall and having John Cleese as my butler was the icing on the cake.

I've beat all three Fables and I honestly think this will be my favourite after I finally get it later this month.

As for this routine of top previews and terrible reviews, we've seen it before and know it's basically a scam, so if you're interested in this game at all I'd strongly recommend just trying it for yourself.

Idk if its a scam or if its just that reviewers don't realize the differences between the preview play space and the playspace used in the review IDK even i was astonished when i read how steel battalion didn't work but when playing it actually worked well after some practice with learning the controls Obviously there must be some huge difference.

I think it's a scam pure and simple - the hardware seems to work fine when it's a 'casual' (Angry Birds / Wreckateer) or 'kid-friendly' (Sesame Street / Happy Action Theatre) game, but somehow when it's a serious (Steel Battalion / Star Wars) game nothing controls properly? Please.

I have to agree with you on the steel battalion thing even though it worked well for me there were hick ups when playing i wouldent say its as bad as reviewers say but if you take some times experimenting you can learn how to make it work (im going off of the demo here and gameplay vids from darthgarvi actually) for star wars i wouldent say it didnt work it worked pretty well to me honostely only things i had problems with were the huge monster crushing game and i only had problems with say 2 moves in that. I belive most hate for that game is comeing from just plain old hardcore starwars fans that belive that battlefront was canceld for a kinect title. Idk why most of the games that get bad reviews work great for me maybe its because i study the movements of people that play in demos at events( if you really look those that play and say its bad are really stiff) or its probably because i look at other people that play kinect for help idk. I just belive that if you put in the work to honestly and whole heartedly learn the controls,mimic them correctly and set up a reasonable enviornment to play it in it will work because basically for the kinect to work for you you have to work for it first. (BTW when i say you im talking about everyone as a whole)

Absolutely - if you use the correct commands and have the proper setup (both issues which lie at the feet of the player) these games are not just good, they're bloody amazing.
