Finally Finished Fable **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

Posted by NicBarker (21 posts) -
I have being playing a lot of Fable 2 lately, and finished it last night. It's a great game, full of action, adventure, tension and emotion. It is, without a doubt, the most poignant game I have played on my 360, and it came as somewhat of a surprise. When I first popped the new disc into my machine, I was thinking I would be the ULTIMATE BAD-ASS, slaying monsters and innocents alike. I played the entire game through in that fashion. The guide, Theresa, was always there as the influence of good to the evil I was committing. Which leads to me to my first observation.

I was surprised when my dog, who I named Murphy and was fond of, sacrificed himself for me at the hands of Lord Lucien. It hurt a little bit. Each time I dig up treasure or open a chest now, I always miss having the dog beside me. After killing Lucien, I chose the option of wealth (being an achievement junkie, I cheated and got all three ending achievements by quitting out and redoing the short passage of gameplay). This meant I would not have my dog, but would have ONE MILLION gold to spend on whatever I wanted. This was all well and good until I realised that there was a money cheat and I could have saved my dog AND been rich. Too bad I guess. I'll have to play again and choose a different path, so I can see the dog again.

What really freaked me out though was the fate of Theresa. When Lucien was defeated, Theresa said I could rule all of Albion; BUT THE DARK SPIRE WAS HERS. She had previously shed light on the catastrophic damage that the Spire could cause, the evil it contained. What a sinister end for the "good" character in the game to disappear into her own sinister motives. I also realised later on that she may be up to something in the franchise's next installment, as I could NOT swim out to the Spire at all. THE GAME WOULD NOT LET ME.

All in all, I really enjoyed Fable 2. Having not played the last installment I didn't really know what to expect, but now I'm hooked completely. I have over 700G on it and I hope to get as close to 1000G (cant get the "Completionist" achievement due to lack of dog *sniff*) as I can.

Highly recommended, my full review coming soon.

Catch.

I played the good guy and sacrificed my wife, family and dog, so the families that lost their loved ones could be reunited. I had some money and a big house that I bought, but I just couldn't play anymore. It was a really cool game, the ending was more moving than action, which was fine by me.

I did the right thing my first time through. My second time I took the cash.

You can get your dog back with the DLC just so you know.

I played good. I took the choice of saving all the people loss. I thought the game would give back my dog, since it's a major gameplay mechanic.. I saved the world, and all I got was a stupid statue. So, I sorta of went to Bowerstone and went on a killing spree.

That's exactly what I did, I went into the pub and started dancing and got like, 20 people around me. Then I charged up my level 5 lightning spell..
