IGN Fable 2 Review

US, October 20, 2008 - What kind of hero will you be? This is the central theme of Fable II, Lionhead's follow-up to its popular Xbox title. Will you be a selfish hero who hordes his money and looks for any opportunity to earn more, even if it means others would suffer? Or will you be a noble hero who gives to the poor and would sacrifice everything he owns to protect the innocent? How you answer these questions will affect how the world perceives you and determines the future of Albion...

This is a great score.

Add 1 more game to the long list of Great games on Xbox 360.

heyheyhey3652d ago

oh will you please stop being an idiot.... it's a good game

elshimiablo3652d ago

dailygame gave it 7.8 and many websites like Gamereactor/Teamxbox gave it 8 /10

The review average will soon go below 90. Another flop on x360

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3652d ago

Dont worry about it Lolliflop,there are plenty of other flops on the 360 soon.Let the xbots have their first AAA game of the year

TheNewerGuy3652d ago

Did someone say Fable II would outscore MetalGearSolid 4?

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3652d ago

@The newer Guy

Someone said that? ROFL at the xbots

White-Sharingan3652d ago

Im sorry I love fable but it pisses me off that when a PS3 game recieves a score lower than a 9; its a instant flop

but when a 360 game gets that score; its a good; NO; GREAT SCORE! for the bots

what a sad day :\ Im still buying fable but I thought it would at least be in the 9's+

how on earth did you get those bubbles?

KingDizzi3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

Very nice score but IGN UK giving a higher score than IGN US and same for LBP with both games being made in the UK? We have to stick TOGETHER.

*god save the queen*

Jokes aside a very nice score, Peter delivered

KingDizzi3652d ago

Fable 2 + GeOW 2 + LBP = Happyness

chaosatom3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

not too inflated *cough* EUROGAMER *cough* and not too low *cough* the site that gave it a 7.8 *cough*

Why o why3652d ago

agreed, I said the same thing last week look

andthensum3652d ago

IGN gave it:

8.0 for Presentation
8.0 for Graphics
8.5 for Sound
8.5 for Gameplay
8.5 for Lasting appeal

The average of those scores is a 8.3. So where did 8.8 come from?

8.3 is still a good score but why inflate it?

Lifendz3652d ago

your console has the shooters, the action games, and now the RPGs. Heck, I have like no RPGs to play on my PS3 while 360 owners have several to choose from. I still love my PS3 but I have to give MS props for making RPGS a priority and to Peter M for delivering a great game. Wish I could play it.

Is Fallout 3 out yet?

Sarcasm3652d ago

@1.5 IGN doesn't average the score. They even say it in their review matrix.

Rock Bottom3652d ago

IGN states clearly in every review that the final score is not an average of the other scores.

grilledgorlupa83652d ago

Granted they dont and shouldnt average their scores but its kinda weird to score something a lot higher when none of the categories scored over the overall score. Not saying its right or wrong just pointing it out.

Thats why I hate game review scores you cant really score art imo. Its one thing to have scores in sporting events like diving where their are rules judges looking for specific things and the athlete training to meet those specific things but another to score something that the end result only matters if its good which is an opinion.

superflyguy3652d ago

So close to becoming a AAA title on meta critic...

ManOnFire3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

In regards to the overall score and the average being lower than the final score. I think this is done to reflect a certain tilt or in other words the sum of the whole being greater in the end than the sum of the parts.

thereapersson3652d ago

IGN US gave it an 8.3 and IGN UK gave it an 8.8

mikeslemonade3652d ago

Fable 2 was always going to get a score like this low 9s and 8s. No suprise here. It was the others who were hyping this game up.
