If the Fable series at its best was a king-size feast, then Fable Heroes is a Happy Meal with a free toy; even for an arcade title, some will immediately be turned off by its niche packaging and lack of edible content. On top of that, it’s doubtful that any amount of cute patchwork effigies or contrived references will appease gamers that might have been expecting a more fleshed-out experience. What Fable Heroes does offer though, is a good degree of competitive fun, the odd moment of hilarity, and a game that celebrates the franchise in a way that’s suitable for all the family to enjoy. So if you’re looking for something that ticks all those boxes then Fable Heroes is undoubtedly worth the coin. For everyone else this fun-size Albion, despite being a solid blueprint, just isn’t the stuff great fantasies are made of.
