I'm in the UK and both of these games come out tomorrow, and I'm totally lost which to get. I have a week off next week so I'm in need of one of them to keep me busy. I love both RPG and FPS genres, and both Fable 2 and Far Cry 2 look great, and I'm only leaning towards Fable 2 because it is getting slightly better reviews. Whichever I don't buy tomorrow will probably wait til' Xmas.

So for everyone who has both, which one should I get, or which is the better game (in your opinion of course)?

They are both great games...and they're too different for me to choose one over the other. I do have a question that may help me give you some sort of answer...are you getting Fallout 3?

Fable 2 i hear is alot better. FC2 has to many issues.

Far Cry 2 does not have that many issues..

I will be getting Fallout 3 eventually, definitley not in the next month or two, unless I buy it instead of Fable 2 or Far Cry 2, but that would defeat the reason why I am buying a game tomorrow (to keep me occupied for the following week).

Thanks Jayge. The majority of posts in there are of before either game was released though.

Still not sure...

I've played Far Cry 2 for an hour or two before I had to go to lab. Got to say, it leaves a good first impression. Seems like the combat may be a little too easy. I'll get back to you.

Can't say anything about Fable II except to say that if it's anything like the first one, I'd definitely go for Far Cry 2.

Fable 2 is a lot of fun thus far.  Far Cry 2 looked like a pretty good game too (that I will eventually get), but I would give the nod to Fable 2 simply because the RPG market isn't overflowing and there aren't many games like it around.

By issues, i mean design issues. Like walk to point A, talk. Go do quest. Go back and talk again. It just doesnt work. Should be a lil more structure to the game IMO.
