IGN-Fable Heroes Review

IGN:It's time to admit that the brawler genre isn't very good anymore. It's a product of its time, an era where game design relied on a simple joy we enjoyed 25 cents at a time. Difficulty led to death, which made players pump more quarters into the cabinet, and then they continued walking, gut-punching, and turkey-eating on their merry way. Brawlers tended to not last very long, whether out of creative laziness, memory capacity, or the thirst for those delicious coins. As a result, the vivid memory of bashing bad dudes would last years and eventually foster nostalgia.

I don't know what to say. This game look cheesy. It doesn't look like a Fable game at all. If they wanted to go the 4-Player MP route, I would of loved a Crystal Chronicles type of a game which would of totally fit and could of look great and played great. However Comma....this?

Lucretia2389d ago

they just put the fable name so it could sell. even though the fable brand hasnt been a good series since the first game.

the art style in this game doesnt even look or feel like fable. NOTHING is fable like in this game. all its doing its hurting the fable name even more

"hurting the fable name even more"

yeah im pretty sure it hit rock bottom with fable 3 lol not sure anything can "hurt" the franchises name anymore.

Awesome_Gamer2389d ago

This is NOT a fable game..they just slapped the name on it to make it sell

NYC_Gamer2389d ago

MS doesn't know what to do with the Fable franchise

Drekken2389d ago

What do you mean? They know what to do... Milk it!

Moncole2389d ago (Edited 2389d ago )

There have only been four Fable games and five when Fable Journey comes out, how is that milking?

Another swing and a miss.
Minecraft needs to just wrap the arcade next promotion.
Trials Evo was more than enough.

This was "the" game that most of X360 fans have hyping up, another Kinect game that failed to get good scores.
X360 fans even claimed Kinect for the "Hardcore", and I fail to see that even if I have Kinect in my household.

All X360 fans I have met say Kinect is 10x better than Move and Wii Remote Plus wit great games, 1"1 motion detection...

FLOWCity2389d ago

Think you got this mixed up with Fable The Journey bud.

SuperBeast8112389d ago

wrong one this is a XBLA game you know like Fable 2 Pub games...

LMAO @ this FAILED attempt to troll Fable: Journey...classic

On topic..

NOBODY thought this XBLA mini-game ala Castle Crashers was going to be the rocket science of great gaming..in fact IMO it never looked that good from the announcment screens

But, if the game has some incentive to play it like all the other side Fable card games did I may give it a try. But it would have to be a pretty worthy incentive.
