    Fable 2 review

     

    When I bought Fable II it cost me thirty bones I chose it over Fallout 3 which was still at sixty bones even though the games came out only eleven day apart. I don’t understand it’s low price.

    Fable II has a long story 7-11 hours depending on how you play the game and which quest you do. A lot of people have been ripping on the combat feature. It is a basic control scheme Y to shoot range weapon X to use melee weapon. I found it nice how that game has simple combat it made it fluid and simple to master.

    Another feature I loved about Fable was how many hours you can play raising a family, becoming a estate tycoon or mongrel depending your rent pricing, or just causing chaos with out doing a single quest. The mapping is not huge but it is not small it heals like the perfect size for this RPG.

    Some downers about Fable were it’s lack of replay value. After you complete the main story your pretty much just running around killing people because at this point you’re the strongest person in . You might play the game twice though maybe three for the achievements which are challenging yet obtainable through out the game.

It tries (and succeeds) in creating a world which is reminiscent of classic European fairy tales, which is an interesting and diverse land to explore, different towns and...

      Despite its flaws, a Ticket to Albion is worth the asking price. 0

      Fable II is an extremely ambitious game. Its scope is rather enormous, and with a quick glance, Fable II looks like a grand palace of a video game. However, when you get a little closer, as with any grand construction, the cracks begin to show. The Game begins with you choosing to be either a Male or Female orphan and you are thrown straight into a brief exposition/tutorial sequence. In this, as in the Childhood sequence from the original Fable, you need to do odd jobs to get some gold. The sta...
