EGM: Fable: The Journey Review

A great story that Fable fans will absolutely eat up, but some long stretches of lonely road keep this from being an absolute must-have for every Kinect owner. (Fable: The Journey, Xbox 360) 9/10

Seems to be getting pretty high scores for a Kinect game

It's actually getting pretty horrible scores, save for a few select few sites (like OXM and EGM) that are giving it very-above-average scores.

I weep for the Fable series, because this is what it has become (instead of going back to the main series and fixing major flaws and delivering on unfulfilled promises).

you realize that there probably already working on it even while working on this hell even assassins creed 3 was being worked on while 2 spin offs have come out during its development. This isent what fable has become its just s spin off now go outside and get some air because from what ive read it sounds like your becomeing delusional.

This may end up being completely disapproved...but you know why..

Just you know the usual suspects are Dedicatedtotrolling this particuliar game..hint it's not because they EVER were going to play it

Same N4G Different day..

Can't wait to but the game this week to see which sites and reviewers were REALLY on the up and up and which were REACHING for excessive negativity.

There are some games that were made for Kinect, that could not be done with a controller. Games like 'Fruit Ninja', 'Dance Central', 'Kinect Sports', 'Kinect Adventure', ... are great Kinect games and should get these kinds of scores.

This is not attemp to replace Fable. It is a Kinect game done in the Fable world. Kinect is an option. If 360 owners don't like Kinect games, they can pretend they don't exist. When there are genre that I don't care for, I don't come on the net and yelling at people who are having fun with them. That seems crazy to me.

This is interesting tech than M$ is working to refine. Who knows where it would lead. It might remain in games, or it could lead to something no one has even thought of as yet. This is why Americans are the leading inovators in the world (they flesh out ideas and take risk). Kinect games sell well when done well. As long as people keep buying, they will keep making the games, and Kinect will continue to evolve.

I agree, and imagine what would have happened if people dismissed the early computer mouse?

Certainly the earliest computer mouse sold isn't nearly as good as it is now!

That said, I think Fable Journey is definitely an interesting game and it is getting some mixed scores. Then again, many sites gave terrible scores to Kinect Sports, but it is a great game. It alone sold over 3 million copies!

I think the bottom line is, you can't really trust hardcore gamers to review motion games.

There goes the shred of credibility EGM had left.

I hate to say this, but I wish they left it dead and buried. Since it's come back, it's been nothing but a shame to the magazine I loved my entire youth.

I think It's your credibility that's worthless. We all know the review in your opinion is worthless because you don't like the fact It's a kinect game being reviewed.

@Cocozero

I disagreed because you said "for a kinect game"

Read my comment below.

"We all know" nothing, because I enjoy Kinect games more than most.

Not exactly the most impartial fellow around here Sev.

I wish I had seen these two comments early last week.

I love my Kinect. I use it often and think it blows the Move out of the water. Just because I founded a PlayStation site, doesn't mean I'm a fanboy that doesn't like or own an Xbox. I own an Xbox 360 and I also manage a multiplatform review site.
