No Added Sugar's James gives his early review of Fable III, explaining the good, the bad, and the opportunities Lionhead missed.
I can't personally agree, but still a well written piece.
Looks like it's splitting opinion already. But the more discussion the better, we think!
Interesting stuff James. Sort of getting the sense that a new Fable this quickly was a bit unnecessary. At least they've made some bold design choices to shake things up.
Most games need more than the usual 2 year development cycle. Insomniac recently said that they asked Sony for more dev time with Resistance 3 and Sony said yes. Insomniac said the extra year was sorely needed. Resistance 2 was a big disappointment for me that clearly needed more time. Problem is, in my opinion, MS don't care about quality. MS will release a game on schedule no matter what. Remember how Gears 2 released and the game's online portion was clearly not finished but MS won't miss that holiday release date. Halo ODST released with no matchmaking for firefight simply because they ran out of time for the holiday release. MS only gave the devs that made Crackdown 2 8 months to make it. 8 MONTHS! You can't make a quality game in 8 months. People criticize GT5 delays but I respect the fact that they don't want to release a half finished game.
Stop bitching you moron, go back to your fanboy page.
One thing Eurogamer alluded to in the their review, about frame rate drops and characters talking over each other, really annoys me about the Fable series. Needs some extra spit and polish in some key areas.
I'll be getting it for sure but its true that since Fable 1 Fable games havent really shined for their graphics.
Fable's art syle is the only thing that shines at all. It isnt the story or gameplay.
Stop lying cold you know you don't play games. Trolling is a fulltime job for you
even good reviews have a lot of things to say which offsets their scores... I am gonna wait till I hear from gamers, as I did with FO3 and I am glad I didnt buy FO3 so far... Will get it once it hits the bargin bin... Fable may follow suit How long is Fable ?
Where do you live... Fallout 3 SHOULD be in the bargain bins by now... I mean the game of the year edition is probably cheap at this point.
Its still [email protected] GameStop that is...
It's taken you this long to learn don't shop at gamestop. http://uk.webuy.com/product... $13, it's second hand but still a damn good buy for e that's about £1for every 10 hours I spent on Fallout 3.
By all accounts it's a pretty short title for an RPG, 12 hours or so?
12 hours? for a game that boasts crafting a lifetime legacy 12 hours seems like a rip off
Thanks for that. Was trying not to think about how much I'm not playing Fable 3. Now I'm desperate to see if you're right!
Another no name site attacks a great game! Ahh well to each his/her own i guess!
But have added it to my gaming links now. The review was better written, with more depth and less bias than many "pro" journalist sites...right down to the disclosure of the review copy supplied by Microsoft. If more reviews where this clear, unbiased and well written we'd have a much better gaming community. I don't see the "attack" you're speaking of at all -- I see a well thought and expressed opinion that helps me decide if I'm buying Fable III. Isn't that exactly what reviews are for...and should be? If not for you -- To each their own...
Hmm. Seems I may need to steel myself for the same sense of nagging disappointment which has haunted the previous two Fables. Ho Hum.
