Never gets old!!!!
I was a fan of the first one and the second one is alot better! the jobs help out (i love doing the assasination ones lol) the graphics are awsome, the fighting is amazing i love how easy it is too combine attack like do a melee then throw in a long range or a magic attack in there and you get extra exp. when doing this. the gambling games are way better then the first. You can also choose your gender which is cool specually for the female players. Overall this game is fricking amazing and if you like rpgs and like freedome when it comes too customizing your char. this is for you!
You can play how you want
The great thing about Fable 2 is that is lets your character become who you want them to be, corrupt or pure, good or evil, etc. While still sticking to the main story. There are lots of fun quests and the sound and graphics are pretty good as well. The only thing that might turn the game kind of boring would be getting tied up doing smaller things in the game. I found myself spending hours on strictly making money to buy more equipment, buying homes, taking care of a family, and after a while it just gets boring and tiering. Over all as long as you try and stick to the main story and don't get to sidetracked then the game is really fun and worth trying, despite a few glitches.
Monty Python RPG action game
This is one of the most gorgeous games I have ever played. No matter how you turn the all angle camera (third person respectively) you will see a glowing, fuzzy artistic view world. You c an trade, be a worrior, real estates broker. wizard, sharpshooter all in one. Take your time with the many many quests that only help you and your standing with the good people of Albion. Make money. Hang out with other nerds like yourself via XBL. Do quests at the same time. Kinda like Borderlands. Make money while you sleep. Example. You rent out a few homes that have not been refurnished yet so you income is 60 gold. When you wake up you stand to make 12000 dollars (real time).
Couldn't Decide To Get It Or Not.
I couldn't decide if I should get this game or not but it was 5 dollars so I thought why not give it a try. Probably the BEST 5 DOLLARS EVER SPENT!!!!! Once I started playing this game I couldn't put it down. I played for 9 hours straight only pausing for mountain dew and bathroom breaks (Just kidding but I did play for along time). You can pretty much do what ever you want to whenever you want to on this game. It's fun to compare with your friends what skills and activities you like the most. After a couple hours of playing, I was shooting trolls, slashing through hollow people (Zombie like creatures), zapping hobbes (little dwarve like canable creatures) making money doing jobs, decorating a house, playing fetch with my dog, preforming for villagers, and doing quests to become rich and famous, to name a few activities. I have never really played a fantasy game before but I will definitely be picking up Fable III. If you are trying to decide whether or not to get this game GET IT and let the fun begin.
game of the year
Fable 2 has certainly lived up to all the hype its been causing these last few months. It's an awesome game; pretty much perfect in every aspect of the game. Co-op is very fun, and the open environment is amazing. I recommend this game for all hardcore rpg gamers. The story mode is also very nice. I've only played the game for 2 hours, and i'm amazed it's not very glitchy like the first one. The fight system is also very easy, and anyone can use it. There are also many landmarks from the first game that bring back memories. There's no way you can get bored playing this game. There are so many things you can do. Even if you bypass the story for a while there are still tons of things to do. Also you actually have to work for money which is very fun in my opinion. The game is just so good you can even swim and the most intriguing thing about the game is your dog. The little guy is smart and whatever you do in the game determines how he acts. I give this game a 10 out 10 in every category.
Great game but not for Co-Op
I bought this game for my girlfriend because all of my other games are single player games. She wanted to have something fun that we can both play. However, Co-Op on this game is a joke since the second player is pretty much irrelevant to the story. In fact, there were many instances where the second player character was transparent, implying that the character was not important to that moment of the story. So, its not worth getting this game if your intention is Co-Op play. Now, if you plan on playing this as a single player (on or offline), this game is great. Graphics are great (not the best I've seen) and the audio is great. The control layout is okay, but at times it just does not flow right. There are instances where you have to press pause to do something. I like the fact that your actions dictate the outcome of many things, from crime within a city or even the look of your character. Overall, this is a very good game and its fun. But if your intention is Co-Op, don't bother.
This is a great game, don't lie
Really, this game is great, you have your own dog, you can train him to do tricks and also, what I liked is being able to learn expressions, like whistling, vulgar thrust, blow kiss, and stuff like that. There are many things to learn with expressions, the clothing, armors, and stuff are a good and big selection, and knothole island added a lot to that also with more armor and clothes, being a knight, an evil knight, an assassin, or barbaric. The graphics I can say pretty much is good, although sometimes I don't like the brightness. The story line is ok, but it was sort of short, like most games these days >_> but for a game like this, they should have at least made the story more longer, at least the story was good, but was kind of short. Really, if you would like to buy this game, you should, I spent my money proudly. This game is one of my favorite rpg games of all time. Don't listen to other people, it's your choice. But I really love that I chose this game, thanks lionhead studios.
Fable 2... where do i start?... when I started it up and began the main story i couldn't put it down i was making money doing side quests and becoming a hero. Then when you beat Lucien (you don't really fight him you just use some stupid box and then hit him once) it felt... like there was a hole like "that was it?" are you serious and i know there are a few quests after that when your the BMOC but they aren't anything special. In other aspects controls, graphics and the overall feel it was a great game but it did leave a lot of holes in it. It isn't as open as i thought it would be and the load screens can get annoying. although i like how the game develops as you develop and how the AI reacts to you. It could have been a lot better but i still think its a good game and i would recommend it. On of my favorite features is the co-op theres nothing better in that game then starting a campaign with one of your Buddy's and playing through it, Overall it was good but it could have been way better.
This is a game worth playing.
When I was younger. My step father had introduced me to an amazing game called Fable. Now, it probably wasn't the best idea for him as thsi game is rated M for mature but when I finally played it. I fell completely in love with the story line of the game and the whole game. I was really excited while playing it, because everything at first was a mystery. Years later, I'm introduced to Fable II and am awe-strucked. It's also an amazing game. Choosing sides, isn't something everyone wants to do but sometimes it is fun to be evil, and sometimes you just want to be good which is a huge advantage of this game. Again, another great storyline. The action in these games are practically amazing in every way. I would highly recommend this game to people who love a good story of fantasy and actually get to live it out in this game. There are endless possiblitles. You can even get married and have a child or two. Now with Fable III out, I'm even more excited and glad to announce that I have become a huge fan of Fable for all Fable games.
Great Game but somewhat disapointing
Lets get one thing straight, I love this game. But there are several things that are disappointing. I feel that though the story was good, it was lacking some key aspects that would bridge the worlds of Fable 1 and II together. Another thing was the glitches that occur on numerous occasions throughout the game. The expressions make the protagonist seem like a flat character in the rich world of Albion. The spells, though beautifully illustrated are weaker then as expected. Some GOOD things were the combat was exiting, the dog was interesting and fulfilling. The graphics were beautiful, the world was rich, the setting provided a new depth to be found in future RPG's. The world for the most part sucks you in until you complete the extremely short Storyline! A lot of the expectations for this game well be broken, slaughtered, burned, decimated, and butchered. But still a satisfying experience. Peter lied again, but at least he developed Fable II, which is only a rocks throw from being a masterpiece.
