Guardian: "A west country burr and scouse grumbling as you wander around a medieval village? Yes, the Fable franchise is back. Developed by Peter Molyneux's Lionhead team, the Fable series of action role-play games has always flattered to deceive. Fable 2, while enjoyable, never really gave you a properly compelling reason to spend time away from the main adventure by getting married or buying a house. It felt – like many previous Molyneux games – that these were good ideas waiting to be properly implemented."
