With the same wild ambition as its predecessor, Fable 2 really does unbreak the hearts of the faithful. Set hundreds of years after the original, Fable 2 has its share of nostalgic allusions without requiring a bit of recall to enjoy it. Your character will truly become what you make of it, while retaining a remarkable ease of gameplay and accessibility. The combat is clean, fun and well–designed, and exploration is nearly boundless. Lionhead still manages to fall short on some promises, but even so, you will love this game.
+ Call in sick kind of fun
+ Excellent art design
+ Immersive and vast
- Co-op makes me uncooperative
- Pause menu leaves too much to the imagination
