IGN: Fable II: The First Three Hours

It's been four years since the release of Fable, an RPG that promised (and failed) to reinvent the wheel. Despite not living up to Peter Molyneux's lofty promises, Fable was still a critical and commercial success. For the sequel, Molyneux is trying to hold the grandiose comments to a minimum. IGN know they are going to love their dog, that they will have unique drop-in and drop-out online co-op, and that the combat is simple on the surface, but has some depth. That much they have seen. Surprisingly, there's a lot of Fable still to be discovered.

I am actually excited for Fable 2.It will be the only game this year capable of competing with a PS3 game.Microsoft should be grateful for having at least one talented studio at their disposal.

After first one being giant over hyped lie and promising us God knows what and giving like 25% of it, i am reserved about Fab 2.

What is your gamertag? Just curious.

Sony Rep3472d ago (Edited 3472d ago )

He doesn't have to give shtt.

tgh machines3472d ago

he is proving that too pawned doesn't even have a gamer tag.

leila013472d ago

what are you so angry about? He just asked a question and he did it nicely. You sound like a frustrated, lonely, little man.

Boldy3472d ago (Edited 3472d ago )

You really go overkill there SonyRep he was just asking a simple question. If Too Pwned wants to reply or not that's up to him, not you.

Anyways I don't want to watch to much of the storyline of Fable 2 because I want it to be a whole new thing for me. No one ruin it for me!!!

Sony Rep3472d ago (Edited 3472d ago )

So what? You don't need no gamertag to play Fable 1.

Sony Rep3472d ago

My whole point was that that OP formulated his opinion by playing Fable 1, and was called out for it. Last I checked, Fable 1 was out on PC and the original Xbox.

Ok, guys, take your drivel to the openzone.

Sweet game is 15 hours and PM said game is 100 hours if you finish every thing in game.

Panthers3472d ago

When they say everything, do they mean watching a tree grow from an acorn? 15 hrs is short for an RPG. I hope this one is MUCH better than the first.

cherrypie3472d ago

Fable 2 is "15 hours" is just stupid nonsense.

If you play the game, straight through, with no purpose other than to "reach the end", you can probably do it in 15 hours.

Just like you **CAN** beat Super Mario Bros. in 5 MINUTES if you do the same.

This is an RPG. Did you hear you can own houses in Fable 2? Do you think you're going to own one of those posh places without playing the game longer than "point a to b to reach the end in 15 hours"?


Fable 2 is going to have *a lot* of replay, if for no other reason than the CoOp adventuring.

himdeel3472d ago (Edited 3472d ago ) a GREAT length, time-wise, especially if you consider speeding through the game. This give you a chance to run through if you need to but also gives you a clear idea of what you can come back and do later, for better or worse. I think this game will have tremendous replayability and it's an A+ in my book...although I may not be able to get it right away :(

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3472d ago

The option to buy all the houses and buildings is astounding.
