OTG: Fable II Review

Only the Games writes: "While it harkens back to its predecessor with resolute devotion, Fable II has been envisioned with a new sense of clarity. Through redacting the roleplaying genre to its most basic function, Lionhead Studios has crafted a truly blank page experience that awaits players to author as they see fit. Full of humour and charm, unbarred from plodding genre archetypes, the appeal is instant. With a solid combat system, focused freedom, and true simplicity to design, the mirth of the experience is found in painting the world in your colours – even if the consequences aren't quite as all encompassing as they should be."

Loving the style and all, but I have to agree that some of it is a little too simple.

cheese4271d ago

It is a good step for the series, and it still remains wildy ambitious, which speaks to how the original was such a pipedream concept. It striving for those heights and it will reach them soon enough.

*funny how that works*

TheDude2dot04271d ago

I find it hard to believe you bought 7 PS2s. That means you're either lying about how many times your PS2 broke, or you're an idiot for buying 7 and deserve to have those broken.

Pick one.

ps2 costs only 200 bucks. >.> 16 year old kid *at the time* i make that mowing 5 yards(front and back)*have to edit this so people dont go BS*. >.> during the summer i would mow 4 days out of the week. >.> (2-3 yards a day) i made a good bit of money. not to mention i had nothing else to spend it on, >.> i got my xbox for mowing my neighbors yard.* mowed it 4 times he bought me a xbox* so go ahead and call me a lier. >.> just like how the ps2 didn't have the largest failure rate of any system to date.

perfect post. i agree lets use or minds here folks. you cant have a real serious coop for the most part becasue your friend sor you are ruingin the mood with terrible jokes and or humor etc.

its just not possible (Okay maybe it is) but its hard to make a game like dead space and expect the 2 player to give a crap when one person is always talkign etc.

reason why they made RE online but it failed becasue there was no talk but they did it right by making it that way becaseu how scared are you gonna be with your friend in the back ground eating/talkign to his buddies or parents

Aceitman: Are you going to spam that in every channel?

Fat chance of that lawsuit holding any water. MS will replace your 360 for free if it suffers from the RROD for 3 years, there is nothing else monitarily MS is responsible for.

Anyway, reported as Off-Topic since it has nothing to do with Fable 2.

btw - still on my first Xbox from launch and play it almost every day.

So you're an extremely rich kid who wastes money on buying 7 PS2's for 200 dollars each?

JeanPool hasn't played this game, and he already knows it's mediocre.

Kriller4271d ago

Well, it's definitely NOT mediocre by any means. It just could be better in a lot of ways.

cheese4271d ago

Right, that coming from the guy who used to say that anything that wasn't Sony produced can eat sh** and die. Amazingly unbiased opinion we have here.

JeanPool4271d ago

JeanPool doesn't see bias, he sees truth.

FBl4271d ago

Just another mediocre microsoft game

PrimordialSoupBase4271d ago

I hope you get payed for your promotional work.

GiantEnemyCrab4271d ago

Goes to show what you know. The game was developed by Lionhead and was published by MS. Lionhead are far from mediocre.

Sez 4271d ago (Edited 4271d ago )

don't feed the troils. they are just mad becuase socom floped. now they need a game that scored AAA to flop with it. i still waiting for him to answer my question about which game sucked the most. haze or socom.

@below.
and who hired those people to make games like haze and socom. oh.... thats right it was sony. now do us all a favor and crawl back in your hole. ok

Harri44444271d ago (Edited 4271d ago )

I believe that it is MS that hires people like that. sony earns there fans by making better systems and games.

This game has co-op therefore it's full of win. EA hates co-op, just look at Mirror's Edge and Dead Space. Any game without co-op is pointless waste of time.

Kriller4271d ago

All you ever talk about is co-op, just stfu. Dead Space should never and will never sport co-op.

PrimordialSoupBase4271d ago

All games should have co-op, EA were just lazy. Fable II would have been terrible without it.

cheese4271d ago

It's called being alone on a derelict space craft. That feeling doesn't really work when a buddy is chattering in your ear.

BlackTar1874271d ago

Not all games need coop. Dead Space coop would be stupid i say it again STUPID. Coop is good whre it works. But games liek dead space bio shock etc. Do not need coop. In my opnion some games are ruined byt there poor coop.

Aclay4271d ago

"Any game without co-op is pointless waste of time. "

Sorry, but to me any game that doesn't have a good story is a waste of time.

Every game wasn't meant to have Co-op and there's different strokes for different folks. I'm more of a Single Player gamer, so I enjoy games that are Single Player only.

Plus, some of the most groundbreaking/ acclaimed games had no Co-op or Online at all ( God of War series, Shadow of the Colossus, ICO, Final Fantasy X, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, etc....) I think that everyone should really learn to appreciate Single Player and story driven games because they are a dying breed now-a-days.
