Review By Jason Nimer:
"Well, I did it. I finished Fable II, the long-awaited sequel to the original Xbox's action RPG bestseller. That is kind of starting at the end, though, isn't it? Let me backtrack for a moment. Fable II on the Xbox 360 was my first true foray into the Fable universe; my experience with the first was a few fleeting moments of play at a friend's house where I remember thinking, "Diet Zelda? Just one calorie, not enough Zelda." Incorrect or not about the first, I went into Fable II completely fresh-faced and with no reservations about what I was about to experience. About 20 hours later, I see Fable II for exactly what it is: a flawed RPG with some fantastic elements, some tedious and flawed ones to match and an overall experience that just can't seem to decide on a direction."
