Well just finished the game and I couldn't agree more with how Brad felt about the ending of this game. Before I get into that, how did you guys feel about the game overall and then what you think about the end game stuff?
I definitely think that it is a solid Fable game despite some of the stupid UI decisions. I got used to the Sanctuary as a replacement to a standard menu even though a more streamlined menu would most likely be better, but damn I want to have an option to pull up my inventory. I do admire Fable 3's determination to force you to stick to your choices you made by autosaving automatically after your decision and only allowing the one save per hero. Also the game is still funny as ever.
As for the ending, well wtf. The whole shadows are comin' to get you thing was just shoehorned. They suddenly bring this whole evil force that is never explained on where they came from and surprise you with it as soon as you land on Aurora and I don't know how they expect me to give a shit about their problems. In fact I think that the game didn't do a great job about making you care for the people in it. The only person I may have had at least acknowledged was Walter since he was there with you at the beginning. Anyways back to the shadow stuff, they brought the end game sequence on you so damn suddenly that it was bullshit. Like Brad said, they really needed to put in a message or something saying, yo make sure you're done with everything before passing this point. Last point is what the hell is that blind seer doing anyways?! Last I remember she took over the Spire and holed herself up in there and I don't remember the Spire ever being mentioned in Fable 3.
OK this is getting rantish. So ya what do you guys think about the overall game and what are your thoughts about the ending? It is still a solid game with the great British humor and I will continue to rule Albion within a chicken suit.
