fixed em.

and, AAAA from Eurogamer, they never give out 10s. they gave fable1 a 8.

wow I am surprised, I was honestly expecting the same reaction the original got. I thought they were a little unfair on the original fable despite it's problems. Sounds like this is the Fable Molyneux originally wanted to create, I really enjoyed the original despite it's issues and bugs. 
Plus Lionhead are a UK Developer, so I always want to see them do well... infact I want to see any developer do well.

Looks like Mr Molyneux Really did it this time.  Fair Play to him.

Can't believe this is out the same day as Far Cry 2....... :(

#6 Posted by Max_Chill (162 posts) -

It should get a 5 star from here. the game looks amazing

#7 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

Can't wait for tomorrow. I have a feeling I'll be playing Fable II all day.

WOW, a Peter Molyneux game coming through in 9's and 10's.

This is a wonderful, wonderful day.

Well done Peter, I knew you could do it!

IGN UK is up, 9.5

Now I want it real bad.

#12 Posted by pause422 (6187 posts) -

Looking pretty good, even cutting all the xbox specific reviewers out, because they have no say in this...I knew it would review pretty well though, seemed like a huge improvement from Fable 1, even if a lot of its core just feels upgraded. I only ever thought fable 1 was mediocre at best, but liked several things about it a good amount, and fable 2 seems to improve on that greatly. Now the problem is between Farcry 2 and fable 2 coming out tomorrow, and fallout 3 coming out next week, too many things are coming out ....

Good to know he's still the credible designer we know and love.

Really, I prayed this game would do well for his sake; he's such a nice guy.

#14 Posted by Zebadee (491 posts) -

Haha all that shit given to Peter, he's shown em now!

#15 Edited by betterthantelevision (82 posts) -

Stickied to the Fable 2 board, I'm shocked that Keano made a worthwile contribution to the forums. Way to go, Keano!

Anyways, I'm happy to see some positive reception of Fable 2. It's a game I've been looking forward too, and after Sonic Chronicles sucked, I need one of the games I've been looking towards to be good.

Or you can Google that shit yourself and see that meracritc only has 3 reviews listed right now before you try to Lecture others.

and this thread was made 3 hours ago, when the review embargo was lifted and metacritic staff were in their beds.

How the hell did Eurogamer end up giving this game a 10!?  ...that just seems impossible.

#21 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I have really been looking forward to this game and never thought it would disappoint, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm really surprised with how high these scores actually are on average.

Yea...it's kind of hard to have a sense of humor when you're a guy named Hilary.

I bet this game loses points with several reviewers for them reviewing the game before they're able to play co-op correctly.  That really sucks too, as the version they're reviewing early isn't the version that any of us will be playing.  This is one instance where I think they should re-review the game.  To do otherwise is really quite unfair to the developers.

I'm with you on that one, after watchin a few JustinTV feeds of it didn't look that spectacular, but these Reviews make it a Definate purchase now................................after I'm done with Far Cry 2. ;)

OMG, it got a 10 from eurogamer. Nothing EVER gets a 10 from eurogamer (well almost nothing) They're the harshest reviewers since gamespot! Hard to believe, but it looks like Molyneux actually pulled it off...pity I'm in England and have to wait till Friday to get it   :-( oh, well I'll just watch the teasers :-)

one score below 9 (8.8) means the game fails. Canceling my preorder right now

Not at all. I'm saying that's a very respectable score for it to get because they don't like handing them out.

I'm the review intern. Secretly. Nobody knows about me... not even the GB crew. Shhhhh.

Anyway, off to go work the midnight shift at GameStop. I'll pick up my copy as we leave the store! Hurrah!

im in there right now, every one pretty much agrees the game is great and deserves a great score, even the die hard cows are like "FLOP!!! J/k good score." People dont care about the GS reviews that much anymore. System wars isnt as flame filled like it was back in the Gertsmann era when the reviews from that site meant something.

What the fuck is wrong with a 8.5? Really? I don't fucking understand people. Someone says a game is great and people bitch and moan. Look at all the scores you posted in the OP, a lot of those in the same ballpark as GameSpot's score. You know what, now I really hope that Giant Bomb gives it 4 stars. So, I can see what your reaction is then.
#50 Posted by Gunner612 (4338 posts) -

The guy who reviews Fable 2 on gamespot needs to be shot. "Making money is way too easy" wtf? is that actually a valid reason? From what ive heard its actually hard to earn money in that game.
