Rated 5 out of 10 by theat01 It was ok
Again...it was ok, but a lot of the plot was predictable, the gameplay was (as mentioned plenty of times) repetitive and a lot of quests were way too similar. The game length is short, and this seems to be clearly to allow gamers to buy unnecessary DLC. That means, of course, that once again this is a stripped game obviously intended to obtain more money through content that realistically should fit in with the base game. (a far too common practice today, which most of us hate...but that's just how it goes) The real kick is that even with all of the added content, the games base isn't strong enough to justify buying more into it. The voice acting never was great in these games, but it seems like the NPCs are constantly bothering the main character(s). I played through once with a friend who had quite a bit of content...he was really impressed with the game, but I just couldn't share that affection. For the record, I was a huge Fable 1 fan when it was out, and played Fable 2 a bit, but don't own a console myself so never really was able to give it a good play through. Fable 3 was a return to PC gaming, but it proved to be an awkward return.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Burninator To tell the Truth
To tell the truth, this game is one of my favorites for the current console generation. I would say that I have been enjoying it the same amount as Fable II, and that was also one of my favorites. The combat system is better than that on the xbox and some graphical IMPROVEMENTS have been made, along with a little additional content. I have no idea why the pc version is rated lower than xbox, if anything, I would rate it slightly higher. If your looking for a short game, but with many choices, and a lot of exploring and re playability, this is the game for you.
Rated 0 out of 10 by PCGamerDude One Word: Finally.
I loved the first Fable. Relatively short game, even with The Lost Chapters, but still a great story with music that I still listen to. The second, well I wouldn't know- I play computer games, not console so Lionhead really stuck it to us by just deciding "nope" to a possibility to make so much more money.
Well Fable 3 is (finally) coming out on PC and I have to say I'm happy. Not excited as I would have been had they release it LAST year, but I'm glad another great game is coming out on PC again.
Rated 4 out of 10 by SincethedaysofMorrowind extrem glitches, terrible gameplay, released fast
gameplay is glitchy: the mechanics aren't user friendly even for "skilled" players, the customization sucks; leveling up is cheap, stupid, and sucks; game was pressed to fast before addressing serious issues, it feels like u r playing a beta. I was glad this game was over fast. Loved orignal fable, still go back and play it, but i sold this copy as soon as i beat the game. Dont buy, waste ur time or money.
Rated 8 out of 10 by OnlyCatie Great game--tech support is horrible.
I LOVE Fable. Always have. It's an amazing game. Though they did nothing to really take the game away from the XBox and make the PC controls different (even having you hold down the button to confirm kind of thing,) I found it very easy to control. What made me most upset was about thirty minutes in, the whole game crashed. I called tech support, they told me my graphics card wasn't good enough to play the game and that I should return it. First off: A computer that is only a year old with basic build for its time should not be having a difficult time playing something. Second: They didn't even try to resolve the issue. Upon looking further into it, I found out that people with graphics cards way better than necessary were having the same problem and all I had to do was update the driver for my graphics card. VIOLA!! The game plays beautifully. Called the tech support back to tell them that a solution was found, and they were rude to me again, telling me that my computer wasn't even capable of watching Hulu. Well, tech support. I showed you. I've been playing WoW on this computer for a year, and now I am playing Fable III. Oh, and I watch Hulu.
In short: Look closely at the graphics card requirement for the game. If you MUST have it but don't have a good enough card, be prepared to buy some fans to keep it cool, have some lag in the game, and update the graphics card driver.
I hope this was helpful to anyone who may run into the same problem! For me it happened when I picked up the guild seal for the first time. Have fun with this amazing game!
Rated 1 out of 10 by WheresMyGame Windows Games Live patch Killes the PC version
The Graphics are phenominal , and the sound quality is great [depending on your system]. But comparing this game to FABLE the Lost Chapters, it isn't as detailed in the interaction. Your choices are selected by the game [good, bad. or indifferent]. You may have unlocked other emotes but you don't get to choose them. The land mass's are circular Zones that don't match the Map very well. The map has an issue, the longer you play the game the more often it will spontaniously close and soemtimes refuse to open. The biggest issue is the last Patch to WGL it is incompatable with the PC version game exe. If you had the game installed befor that patch and havent tried to log on to WGL then you can still play. But trying to install the game since that patch will result in the game failing to execute. The game can not be played [or installed] without WGL being installed , and an account set up 1st [the patch comes befor the account phase]. Befor the patch I would have recomended this game to Knowledgable computer users [game must be installed to "Quick Install" location or it will not run.] Since the only contact for support is Microsoft Tech supoport the only thing they will do is verify your version of Windows and check to see if it is working properly [at $59.00 per minute] , and offer No Game Support. Lion Head Studio refers all Support for FABLE 3 to thier forums and player solutions. [Most dealing with Installing issues] All in All, I would have given this game a 7* but with the WGL patch the game is now a 1* [can't go lower]....
Rated 2 out of 10 by Sera This game will kill your PC
I bought this game as a digital download and every 10-30 minutes of gametime it my computer will forcefully put itself in to sleep/hibernate mode as if its crashing. When the game is actually working it plays great, but I know Fable III is famous for it's glitches, and it definitely does not like my computer.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Daedhart Uhh...
Uhh, did I just fall into a coma for 2 years? What happened to Fable II for PC? Are we just pretending that Fable II doesnt exist, or releasing it after Fable III for some arbitrary reason? Im not sure I understand the logic here...
Rated 0 out of 10 by RPGGamer5 I preordered this game for PC.
I'm already excited about what the game has to offer; the reviews seemed like they did a disservice, but that won't stop me, or a moderate number of people from purchasing this game. This might actually be a game I will play all throughout unlike many of my other games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Crimson1996 Don't Listen To Other Reviews...
I know that this game is rated poorly on Gamestop, but it was only judged by SEVEN voters. I actually enjoy this game, and you can also. Look at other sites for a more accurate calculation (at least 20 voters).
