J.D. Richardson writes: "Fable 2 is a third person role-playing game of choice and consequence. Most things you do have an effect on the world around you and the people in it, and to a greater degree your own character, who becomes a reflection of all the choices you make throughout the game. Do bad things and your appearance will be corrupted; do good things and your appearance will be pure. But it's not just simple black and white; this is a game of many shades of grey."
