Which is not usually the case. This game seems to be all what fable 2 should have been. After fable 1 I could picture a game like this (more than like fable 2), and finally it looks like it's becoming a reality. I can't believe they (the industry as a whole) took so much time to produce it, but I'm very happy it is finally done.
Sure enough it is very far from being "the ultimate game" for its genre*, but it's looking quite good.
* saints row is probably closer to that goal (for its genre), I mean, what else could be included in that game?
