Customer Reviews of Fable II (Limited Collector's Edition)
I ordered this game for my grandson. He really liked the Limited edition.
This Game Is Horrible...12/20/2008
I Only said it was good so people could actually find this review... When first purchasing fable 2(limited edition) from buy.com I found out I got a copy that didn't have the DLC Card(which had the spartan armour,sword,and extra content) and buy.com offered no help whatsoever and apparently anyone can ask for some codes on xbox.com, so they'er worthless, and also after 7 hours of gameplaying I encountered a glitch and now i have to start the whole game over from start, this is just one of few glitches that can cause you to resart the game, Please just rent this game, and if you must buy it don't get the limited edition the only difference is a dvd that tells you about everything that wasn't included in the special edition... so shame on Buy.com,Shame on lionhead studios, and shame on Microsoft. Heed my warning... or just look on forums, it sucks...
Fable 2 collectors edition is definitely worth the extra little bit for the in-game items. You also get a code for a free version of 'Pub Games' (a xbox live arcade game) if you have not already purchased it. The graphic improvements from the first game are incredible. The combat system is very easy to catch on to, and just large mobs seem epic with a nice use of slow motion on critical hits. This game can be finished within 4 hours, but the side quests and everything extra in the world can take 20-40 hours more! Being able to purchase houses, businesses, take up wives, have children, and all of the customization that is available for your character makes the replay value through the roof. I liked the first Fable, and its idea; Fable 2 feels far more polished and satisfying to play, and 10x more fun.
Not as good as the first one11/17/2008
I bought the limited edition and found it lacking. I thought that the added bonus in the game was really just something to get me to spend the extra cash. As far as the actual game goes, it has a good storyline and great graphics, but I found that it loaded slowly at times and experienced a few freezes. If you play straight through the main mission, it does not take long to complete and it never is really much of a challenge. As a pro, this game has a ton of stuff to do. From taking on different jobs (bartender, blacksmith, hit man, etc.) to getting married and having kids, there are so many "real life" options. Overall, I enjoyed the game but found it less entertaining than the first.
Likes: The gameplay is very fun. I've never played the previous Fable game, but that was not necessary to enjoy the game. Co-op is fun, specially since it's local co-op. Replay value is very high, since you can do anything you want in the world, and not focusing solely on the primary quest. There are tons of sidequests. Dislikes: Bugs and glitches. An example is after killing an enemy you sometimes see it fluttering and blinking halfway in a rock or in the air... Interaction with your dog isn't very accurate. Co-op could be better by allowing the second player to actually use their character and weapons rather than having a generic looking henchman and weapons. Overall: The game was very fun to play and I highly recommend.
That's really all I can say... nothing bad to say about it, this game was incredible and I absolutely loved it!
This game is great! I am always afraid of sequels, because they can never make them right, but this game is perfect! The gameplay feels similar to the first Fable, with a few changes. The multiplayer co-op is awesome, but just a little lacking. You load up as a generic henchman (Male or Female, Good, Neutral, or Bad, Weapon Configuration, it's up to you), instead of your character when you join a game. If you have a profile assigned to the henchman, you will use the abilities that you earned in solo play. The xp and gold that you earn will be given to your profile(if you have one assigned to the character) and when you load up your character the next time you solo play, you get the xp and gold. The multiplayer camera is a bit hard to get used to(can't use right thumbstick to control camera in co-op mode), but if you enjoy it enough like I do, you'll get over it. Great game!!
