Games for Lunch Review: Fable II

Kyle Orland writes:

"0:00 I'm vaguely fond of action-RPGs, but I came to the original Xbox too late to really dive into the original Fable. Fable II has all sorts of buzz to live up to.

0:01 A downloadable update is available, which I find somewhat surprising since the game was officially released less than half an hour ago. The download only takes a few seconds. Thank god this isn't a PS3 game!

0:02 The title appears in white lightning in front of an oddly silent forest. As I hit the A button, a vaguely British voice intones: "And so our story begins."

0:04 "But who is the hero of this game?" I can choose to be a boy or a girl, both of whom look thoroughly modern despite the Renaissance-style setting. "And let HIS destiny unfold," says the voice.

Zoom in close on the town: A man in a large top hat coughs roughly as people go about their daily business. In the background, a medieval choir chants. The bird flits off a roof and we get a slow-mo, "Matrix"-like pan shot of a bit of poop, which lands on my character's head. "I hear that's lucky," says my companion Rose, "Like finding a four leaf clover ... though I think I'd prefer the clover." She calls me "Little Sparrow."

Funiiest part about that is . He takes points off of REs2 becasue there is a update and claims AHHH PS3 but then he doesnt even say anything negative for the exact same thing on a this game. Weird isnt people.

I just finshed it on bad guy status and man that is fun for sure. I beat it as good and as bad and i recommend bad 100x more. Maybe Im just abd guy but that was 100x better and made the game much better in my opnion. Nothing like lvl 5 lighting attack to the whole town .

LOL
