Fable Anniversary Gamespot Review

Kevin Vanord writes, "When you return to a beloved classic and discover how awkward and painfully frustrating it truly was, it's difficult to accept the truth. Multiple stages of grief follow, though many of us never escape the "denial" phase, declaring undying love while sobbing our way through clunky gameplay that has no hope of living up to our childhood remembrances. Thankfully, Fable Anniversary has no desire to ruin your decade-old memories. The original Fable holds up rather well, and this remastered, visually buffed version of it retains the proper charm and rollicking spirit that made the game so delightful."

Fable: The Greatest Game Concept That Never Was

The Fable series is one of our favorite gaming franchises. Heres what we want from the rumoured sequel

ColdSin1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Microsoft announced Fable Legends at Gamescom 2013, not E3 2013. I'd like for the new Fable to have the same artstyle as Fable Legends.

Zoned1173d ago

Thanks for that. I agree, definitely like the art style, but that's it. Nobody wanted Fable Legends!

How about Fable II Remastered for the pc please?!

RaveTears1174d ago

I would honestly buy the Xbox series S just for Fable 2 remastered or a remake.

moongrim1174d ago

I've never played it so I'm like dying over here.

Zoned1173d ago

Fable II was probably the best of the series. It had its flaws but overall was definitely a step in the right direction. Fable III was a huge misstep in comparison

RaidenBlack1173d ago

I was disgusted with Fable III

RaidenBlack1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Yeah ... its an odd situation ain't it?
MS released Fable 1, Fable 3 and Fable 1 Remastred for PC.
Skipping the best one in the franchise.
Same goes for Gears: GoW, GoW Remastered, Gears 4 and Gears 5 are on PC.
And Halo: The entire Halo MCC and Halo Infinite will be on PC. But no Halo 5.

Zoned1173d ago

Definitely agree but you lost me with Halo 5. That was my least favourite Halo game (out of the Halo numbered titles)

RaidenBlack1173d ago

Yea, same here. Only liked the visuals of Halo 5 (that too on an One X, it doesn't look that good on the One S)

But what I meant was, MS is releasing every Halo game on PC from 1 to Infinite, except 5. Which is a bit odd.
Coz the free Halo 5-Forge was quite popular in PC community during its release.

porkChop1173d ago

I never got to play it because I sold my 360. It should have been remastered.

The only thing I can think of is if after the release of Fable Anniversary they decided to take the series in a different direction. They might not want the new game to be associated with the older ones.

sushimama1174d ago

Well lets hope Microsoft are going to announce a new Fable. The MS fans deserve a great Fable game. If it is announced and the gameplay looks cool, this might convince me to get, at least a Series S. It would be my very first Xbox console.

Zoned1173d ago

I would definitely buy an Xbox Series X if a 'proper' Fable sequel were to be revealed!

RgR1173d ago

You mean Fable fans.
Don't have to be an MS fan to want Fable but you definitely need to be a Fable fan to want a new Fable game.

RgR1173d ago

Kicking chickens! That was fun....hope modern society doesn't ruin it for a next installment.

chiefJohn1171173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Hell no Fable legends is NOT what we wanted.
Fable 2 is what we want outta Fable. Remake Fable 2 please.

I'm Obsessed with Enhanced Xbox 360 Games on Xbox One X

"There have been some stellar Xbox 360 enhanced games on Xbox One X. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve become a bit obsessed with trying out each new enhanced title. I’ve also noticed Microsoft put a lot of focus on its exclusive 360 games from last gen (The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Fable Anniversary, Forza, etc.). -- Xbox Enthusiast
