CVG Previews Fable 2

"Promises, expectations and more promises. There's a lot riding on Fable 2, and anything less that an RPG revolution will be met with huge disappointment. But the latest demo didn't just hint at massive features, it actually showed them occurring in-game. It's got us sold - Fable 2's going to rewrite the book."

All the best RPG's are hitting the Xbox 360 infact there are loads of RPG's on the 360 and even more on the way like Too Human and Last Remnant can't wait!

Im in rpg/adventure heaven. Still playing though ME and LO. But Fable 2 looks like it really is gonna be something really special. This is one of my most anticipated games this year.

For anyone that has not seen the previews on live the fable world is completly interactive you can own anything in the world,you can get married to a character have children, become world renowned for being a hero or a villian etc etc.

Your character is also interactive meaning if you get scarred in a fight it stays with you and the dog you have with you has its own artificial intelligence and depending how you treat/train him determines what he will look/behave like.

You have live games you can play in game or out with other people online to earn money(gambling etc) and also the interactive multiplayer coop mentioned in the preview.

Banjo and kazzoie 3,too human, infinte undiscovery and last remnant are also this year. 360 is the place to be this year for rpg fans.

Just read about Fable 2 in the OXM magazine preview (which also had the multiplayer preview of GTA 4. It is looking very good, co-op and all. I loved the original Fable, and i am eagerly anticipating this one. And Infinite Undiscovery, that's sounding pretty awesome too.

Game on people...!

Last Remnant is multiplatform. PS3 also has White Knight Chronicles, which looks fantastic. however, Fable 2's where it's at, at least as far as 360 rpg's go. i'm looking forward to Fable 2 about as much as GOW2, which says a lot.

I am rather happy with the RPG choices I am getting too. From Scifi games like Fall out and Mass effect to the more traditional WRPGs and JRPGs.

I really did like Fable 1. Maybe because I wasnt hyped for it. I did think it was a bit short, I dont really think this game will be any longer but the co-op should give some replay value. I expect to like this game but I am keeping my expectations at the Fable one level.

has really flipped the script on what type of games they want coming to thier platform

SuperSaiyan43762d ago

Look at the Wii it has some shooters, PS3 has a few shooters I mean this gen they are pushing Resistance, Killzone and MGS as their top games and they are all shooters!

On the 360 however Too Human, Fable 2, Gears Of War 2, Banjo and Kazooei and Ninja Gaiden 2 are all varied top titles coming to the 360 ONLY.

A huge selection of games, a great online network thats well built and overall a great experience only on the 360.

zypher3762d ago

variety isn't only limited to the 360. PS3 has LBP, Valkyria Chronicles, Tekken 6, Infamous, Heavy Rain, Motorstorm 2, 8 Days, Yakuza and Getaway, and thats just off the top of my head. all in all, i think it'll be a good year for both systems.

Nice pwnage all around, supersaiyan.

power of Green 3762d ago

Yes Fable 2 will add to MSFT's underrated diverse lineup. Tales of Vesperia, Infinite undiscovery, Too Human, APB, Elveon, Thesis, Left 4 Dead, Halo wars, Crash Time... Just to name a few without my list.

"Promises, expectations and more promises. There's a lot riding on Fable 2, and anything less that an RPG revolution will be met with huge disappointment."

Thats a bit unfair I think. The game is what it is. Now, Molyneux should probably know better by now than to over-promise things, he does deliver excellent games, and he has every right to be proud of his work, but this "it has to be the best game in history or it underdelivered" idea is totally unfair.

Fable 2, when shipped, will be as good or bad as it is. That's it. Expecting it to live up to every persons' fictional set of made-up expectations is just silly.

Personally, I look forward to it. If its half as good as Fable, I'll be putting my $60 down and enjoying the ride.
