Eurogamer Denmark take a look at Lionhead's latest outing in Albion. As a huge fan of the series and long time ruler in Fable II, the reviewer is pretty disappointed with Fable III.
obviously written by a fanboy hope it doesn't get on metacritic what a bad review.
@Gayringoflife everyone ignore this comment obviously written by a fanboy
That's pretty low considering all the hype. I guess it really is a flop. Disappointing. PC version anytime soon?
I bet that you didn't even bother to read it.
His complaints: -Main quest is too shot, running at 6 - 7 hours. -The freedom of the world seems out of place with the main narrative. -Side extras, like some quests i assume in order to become known around the kingdom, feel like filler rather then useful. -Combat is too easy. -Final act which assumes 339 days, only lasts like 2 hours. From what I gathered, the reviewer felt that the royalty angle the player assumes in the narrative is not represented well in the game.
i'm playing the main quest about 14hr and now i'm middle of it , how can it be 6-7 hours ?
the biggest fanboy on this site haha. game has flopped. fable as a series itself is a flop. I tried my hardest to play fable 2.... its just way to easy and designed terribly. p.s. i agree an average of 8 isnt a bad score... but when the studio hype it to be the best thing since slice bread and it fails to live up to those statements... its a flop
I'll deduct points as well just for the fact that you have to "hold hands" with other dudes in this game.
lol, a fanboy? What is a fanboy? Thing is, the reviewer is a huge fan of Fable II... so he is entitled to think this or that about the third game. You sound like you like the game because you have to? Or please explain.
I wonder if anyone will read what he says instead of just staring at the number....
A truthful review it is, you can see the guy playing has put time into these games. 4 Pages worth of a review, the guy obviously knows this game inside out.
bah i thought this game gonna be better!
An 80 on meta, and meta's rarely go up from this phase. So When the dust settles I predict it will be about 73 Meh...
meta is 77 first and 80 now you don't know?
Yes but its downhill from here.
sorry 82 now
I would give the Fable franchise as a whole a 7.5
So Eurogamer is good again?
PS games a lower score then all of the other websites its considered a great site. Then when this happens all of the xbox fanboys cry about it.
