Fable 2.

on 5/1/2012

Fable 2 is my favorite in the series. The game is a little on the easy side but it doesn't detract from the fun at all. This is one of the only games that compelled me enough to get all of the achievements. I didn't really try the online at all but it is there to use for co-op or to trade for items that you are looking for. Read More

Review What kind of hero will you be? This is the central theme of Fable II, Lionhead's follow-up to its popular Xbox title. Will you be a selfish hero who hordes his money and looks for any opportunity to earn more, even if it means others would suffer? Or will you be a noble hero who gives to the poor and would sacrifice everything he owns to protect the innocent? How you answer these questions will affect how the world perceives you and determines the future of Albion...Fable II begins more than 500 years after the events of the original. You don't have to know a thing about the first Fable to enjoy the sequel, but there are numerous references to the past. There are plenty of surprises waiting for those fond of the first Fable; consider it a reward for having played the original. In Fable II, you play as a new character -- either male or female -- who begins life as a street urchin and eventually becomes savior of Albion. The main story is brief and has little in the way of plot. It's about as basic a hero's tale as can be fashioned. It's the atmosphere and elements outside the main storyline that prove most rewarding...Does it really matter to you if the town guard or the town thug gets the five warrants you've collected? I doubt this kind of choice has much of a real impact on a gamer. Now, what if the choice you had to make could cost you experience points? What if the one thing you want to do would require you to sacrifice XP? This choice occurs halfway through Fable II and it is the single toughest moment I have ever had in a morality-focused RPG. Experience matters more than my character's family, the dog, or anyone in Albion. It's too bad that these kind of truly tough choices -- the ones that really matter to a gamer -- are so rare in Fable II. There are only a few choices that truly cost you as a player -- and those are the moments when Fable II shines...I have been waiting a long time for a return to Albion. The past four years were well spent by Lionhead. Fable II has a great combat system, some excellent atmosphere, a smart experience system, and lots to do. It's only when you start exploring the social aspects that things take a downturn. The expressions system is too goofy for the more serious tone of Fable II and almost every interaction feels artificial. The sandbox elements aren't nearly as enjoyable as the adventure aspects.
