RipTen Review: Fable Heroes (XBLA)

Michael Futter writes: Right now, the Fable series is in a little bit of turmoil. The franchise started strong on the Xbox, but as time went on, the reality of each entry in the series grew further and further apart from the grandiose promises of former Lionhead Studios maestro Peter Molyneux. Looking back, fan satisfaction peaked during Fable 2. For me and many others, moods plummeted at the end of that game to “angry Mass Effect fan” levels. In fact, I was so enraged by the ending of the second installment, that I didn’t even bother with the third entry. (Fable: Heroes, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

At least they can't make the Fable franchise any worse now, right? Right?

I think they just tacked the Fable name on it to cash in. Unfortunately this happens to many successful franchises. Don't know how many times poor Mario has taken the Italian sausage for Nintendo.

I'm not sure about that. I had LOTS of issues with the game, but everything about it was designed to poke at the Fable nostalgia centers of the brain.

In fact, it seems that aesthetic and presentation trumped game play during the design process.
