IGN AU: Fable II Review

The combat is a great deal of fun and there's just so much other stuff packed in that you've always got countless things to keep you busy, and it's never less than enthralling seeing how everything in the world interrelates. Best of all, while the story represents an engaging ride, it's really only one piece of Fable II. After the story is done and dusted, you make another choice about your role in the world and back in you go – ready to complete unfinished quests, snag any remaining collectibles, continue leveling up and buying property, and above all, continuing to experiment. Fable II is a masterful piece of game design, and utterly compelling.

Presenatation - 7.0
Graphics - 8.5
Sound - 9.0
Gameplay - 9.0
Lasting Appeal - 9.5
Overall - (Fable 2, Xbox 360) 9.2/10

blooodFrenzy92  +   2089d ago
so
it got a 9.5 9.2 and a 8.8 which = a 9.2 average not bad at all from ign!

Yes I'm glad the 360 has at least one AAA game this year.It was getting boring destroying them in reviews for a bit
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2089d ago
Lord then that must really suck for you seeing as the PS3 has only had 2 AAA titles it's whole existance and 1 of them is multiplatform.

Cry some more.
Nintendo Rep  +   2089d ago
Jesus Christ Crab, leave him alone in his delusional world of AAA games on the PS3. Do you know why the PS3 is failing? The PS3 decided to copy motion control from the Wii which means this all karma.

Failbox and Failstation destined to Fail amongst themselves in Failland. FAIL. At least the 360 is in second place... PS3 better do something or the Failbomb will Fail all over the Failstation 3.

@Crab, MGS4 and LBP = not multi-platform
If you're going to count FableII as an exclusive, then count LBP as well...

Typical bias Bot

pwned
BIoodmask  +   2089d ago
That is a really good score
because IGN AU usually rates lower than IGN US. Props to Peter for being able to pull it off. I am looking forward to seeing what his next project is. Hopefully something will be announced soon.

N4PS3G  +   2089d ago
it was you who posted the review..lol ..sorry
Nintendo Rep  +   2089d ago
I'm getting this game just to fill in between Zeldas. Still hoping for a new one. This game reminds me of Zelda so much, 9.5 is the correct score.

"IGN us rated it lower"

Either way, Peter and the rest of Loinheard delivered.
Halo3Mgs4  +   2089d ago

Fable 2 hasn't been released yet, why are you already interested in his next project? I don't know maybe Fable 3 for early 2010?

Just curious.

Hilary you let me down.
The us review, as done by Hilary Goldstein, is far too critical of small problems.Mass effect had numerous problems but it was still awesome.the british and aussies got it right but hilary busted a gerstman.(ohh snapp no he didn't!)
Asane  +   2089d ago
LBP got the same score. It seems like IGN AU is the harshest critics of games as of late.
TheDesperado  +   2089d ago
Isn't this what these freakjobs gave LBP?
The f*cking nerve! LBP is leagues above this.
WIIIS1  +   2089d ago
There's no denying it that for casual gamers, LBP will always be the best.
Product  +   2089d ago
@ 7

I love WRPGs and it is going to be a tough one to choose as my GOTY between Fable 2 and Fallout 3. I've already played the first few minutes of Fable 2 (and earned the chicken kicker achievement...) and there's absolutely no doubting that this is one extremely charming fantasy game. However, I've also seen what Bethesda can do so I suspect Fallout 3 will be the grittier, more hardcore RPG that I tend to prefer. Ah well, it is great to be able to get the best WRPGs on the 360. In fact JRPGs as well. Sony should really start looking to beef up their RPG offerings.
Xeke  +   2089d ago
Not sure how they ended up with that final score because if your grading it on five factors then surely you have to give it an average of them graded factors, so 7.0 + 8.5 + 9.0 + 9.0 + 9.5 = 43 43/5 = 8.6

OVerall score
