How come the first reviews were all 9.9 10 9.99 and all that but now its just 8.9 8.9 8.7 even 7.8 bla bla. I never played fable 1 and i never had any real expectation to buy fable 2 but i might rent it to check it out but i am just curious what is it that is causing the reviews to be spread out
Gamekult gave MGS an 8 too. they are very harsh and very well respected. Here in France, we still think 8 is a very good score, especially from Gamekult.
fable 2 is at 89% at metacritic. It lost its AAA status. It is an 8 hour game
The main story is about 7 hours but you're right, Fable 2 is not the "AAA" game that 360 fanboys hyped. With all the 8's and 7's that keep coming it will never be able to stay above 90% on Metacritic. Sorry 360 fans. Your only hope now is Queers of War 1.5, which has the worst ending of the year. http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... It is also plagued with bugs and glitches. http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/...
With all those bugs and long load times issues that are being reported i am surprised it is even averaging 8.9. If this game where a PS3 exclusive it would be averaging a 7.0.
. AAA? My arse!
.Metacritic score is back at 90% http://www.metacritic.com/g...
since Giant Bomb's review hasnt been added Giant Bomb gave it 8/10 and UGO gave it 75% -- B/A+..ouch OPh wow Variety has given it 9.8 --ROFL is that site owned by MS
the average went below 90% It is now 89% http://www.metacritic.com/g... :)
look again Its 89% now
They worship metacritic, lol Edit: Yes that too
since Giant Bomb -8/10 and UGO -75/100 would be added tomorrow So again misery for BOTS LBP has 95% at meta as we speak
the people that really liked the game and rushed through it gave it high scores. the people that took their time really reviewed it. not saying fable 2 is a bad game i think its a great game but yeah thats just my opinion
Have you played it?
i think im missing something here. how is 8/10 a flop?
It's not flop but you guys desperately need a triple a game and i guess this one isn't delivering.
got my copy, fixing to play. But I still think people give this game way too high of expectations... It's really good for what it accomplishes (if it's anything like 1). I can only imagine it's better than 1. If every game got scruitinized like Fable 2, there'd be way more lower scores floating about everywhere!
LOVE Fable II!!! I am amazed by the low scores it garners. In my mind, this game should be a clear choice over Bioshock in the XBOX360 library. I am shocked by these reviews, and YES, I've played the game.
1word: SOCOM im of to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
just too many There could be 1 /2 bad games But There are plenty of good ones too Motorstorm 1 has 81% average at meta so AA Resistance 2 and LBP are AAA .However fable 2 is not AAA anymore 89% at meta :)
Gears of Bore 2 is next.
