Review by Anthony Burch:
"I liked the first Fable, as I played it about a year after its initial release, after the hype had died down and my expectations were lowered. Though the good/evil mechanic was kind of gimmicky and the story sucked, it was a reasonably solid action-RPG with a lot of really interesting ideas.
It was with a reasonably amount of excitement, then, that I looked forward to Fable II. Granted, that excitement was tempered with the usual "it's by Molyneux, so it will be disappointing in many respects" emotions we've all memorized by now, but I remained hopeful that, amidst all the untapped potential and failed mechanics, there would -- maybe -- be tiny pot of gold.
I wasn't prepared to find a swimming pool full of the stuff.
