I had seen it at E3 but my time was limited and I only really got to see the multiplayer aspect. This time around I got to start at the beginning and play until they pried the controller out of my hands and fairly ejected me from the room to make places for the next group coming in.
In Fable II, you start out as a child and have the choice of whether to play male or female. You are dropped into the town of Bowerstone, 200 years after the end of the original Fable. 200 years has done a lot for Bowerstone and it is no longer a quaint country village, but a thriving town with many citizens, each with their own personalities. You are teamed up with your sister and the two of you go through the city performing simple tasks for the citizens that serve as the game's training level. Right off the bat you are faced with moral choices like whether to give the arrest warrants you found to the local police or sell them to the nasty man who threatens your life. I don't want to ruin the storyline for you so I will refrain from telling you how this beginning level resolves, but suffice it to say it is a great launching point for your grand adventure."
