Waited years for relaunch, Weeks for release date
Since this is a preview I'll keep it short and sweet. The original Fable game, added on with The Lost Chapters, is the greatest Fable game out there. Fable II and Fable III do not even compare to the original. Fable The Lost Chapters actually has a variety of armor, tons of quests, and all around greatness that Fable II and III never offered. Armor actually has valued stats and powers to make them worth while. I am a huge fan of Fable The Lost Chapters, and have been waiting forever for a remake. Once it was finally announced I was extremely excited, and have been waiting weeks for it to finally be available for pre-order, and to have a release date. I highly suggest you look into Fable Anniversary more if you enjoy an armor-filled, quest packed adventure of Greatness.
they did it again!
Ladies and Gentlemen I am sorry to announce that they have did it again. LionHead has taken one of my favorite games and turned it into well words that i cant say, I loved fable the lost chapters fable anniversary is a must return to seller game. Maybe i just got the bad copy but my copy was one of the most glitchiest games ive ever played. how can they take a game thats already made and mess it up. I had people doing the Michael jackson walk. images would flash during the cutscenes that shouldn't be there, and the sounds would cut in and out and i didnt get to hear half the game. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in this game. ive already beaten the game with all side quest, all keys found, all chests unlocked, all demon doors open, 100% complete. the best part of this game is unfortunately the loading screen. my game will be returned and ill stick to playing the lost chapters. the extra download content that you have to purchase from the stores in game isn't worth 40$ sorry but 2 thumbs down.
A New Beginning
Out of all the fable series Fable The Lost Chapters was my number 1 Favorite. fable was one of my first favorite games and really got me into the xbox franchise, i was disapointed with fable 2 and 3 so its refreshing to have this game back out with achievments graffics change and it would be nice if they had some pre order bonuses. and for those looking for fable legends it will be on xbox one and xbox 360.
Get this game!
Fabe 1 w/lost chapters was my favorite fable out of the series. Fable 2 was pretty good, okay compared to this one, but fable 3 took the whole series down hill. I heard fable the journey was not much of an accomplishment either. Fable heroes was a "cute" little arcade game. Fable 1 brings the perfect combination of dark fantasy with humor, action, and folklore. It has awesome looking weapons and armor. Your armor actually mattered in this one unlike the others. In the others your clothing was just for looks. The missions are great and not repetitive. Your villains actually seem to be alive and not robots. The role playing aspect really comes out in fable 1. Your choices actually do matter. Overall= great game, gameplay, graphics, plot, story, heroes, villains, good or evil, kick chickens
Lionhead butchers again.
I'd like to start by saying Fable TLC (The lost chapters) Is one of my favorite games of all times. The game itself is maybe 20 hours long, that's it. Yet my friend and I growing up played a good 400 hours each of this game, side by side, multiple characters/playthroughs. It was the greatest game of that time to many players. Fable TLC was the best Fable.
To clarify, the first fable was basically half of a full game. Fable TLC was Fable, but with the other half. Origional Fable ended in the chamber of fate where you kill Jack of Blades. Fable TLC that's the half way point.
Fable 2 came around, it was a good game, but of coarse didn't compare to the first.
Fable 3 was a good stand alone game, but considered as a "sequel" was a HUGE disappointment.
Fable "The Journey" was a joke. I mean there's an articled on a guy that put a rotating fan infront of the Kinect, and the fan beat the entire game, and got all achievements.
Fable Anniverseray IS Fable TLC (The full version of the first game). Literally all they did was update the graphics, the main menu, some different controller schemes. That's all. The one liners are the same, The map layouts, animations, weapons, etc all the same. Now for anyone that was a fan of the original Fable TLC, this is a great game to own. To anyone that didn't own it, I highly recommend getting it to play because though it doesn't compare at all to "modern games", it is a piece of gaming history. It's like going and playing Mario for the first time.
With that said, of coarse Lionhead Studios Nickle and Dimed us all the way. Okay the game is only 40$... Cool... Considering how small of a game this is, that and how all they had to do was readjust the graphics, this game should only be 20$. That or for 40, it should come with the new content included. Instead, new content (a few sets of wearable items) are I believe 2-4$ each. Total to get all content would be the 40$ for the game, and another 20$ or more of dlc's that add wayyyyyy too little.
I highly recommend waiting on this one. Wait till this game is in the (10$ or less) bucket. Or barrow it from a friend. Do not pay the 40$, or even close to the 40$
I am glad that they finally redid Fable I have waited for this ever since Fable two came out. The gameplay is all the same as before, just wishing the graphics were a bit better. In all this is a wonderful game for all types of players and would recommend it to everyone.
The best Fable.
Personally, I was completely disappointed with Fable 2 and 3 -- VERY disappointed. But this game (and The Lost Chapters) is a different story. This was one of the five reasons I even wanted an Xbox. Even though I still have an Xbox, and I still have the first 1st Fable (and The Lost Chapters too), I'll get this anyhow, as I'd like to experience this again in hi def. My 360 needs some use, and this is just what it ordered.
`Bout Freakin' Time
I own every Fable Title & Mini Game released on console & have been waiting & stalking Gamestop & Lionhead Studio every week for a release date since this HD, Achievement loaded reboot was announced. Very Excited, will be Pre-Ordering. Very refreshing after Fable The Journey to start over & hopefully this will be a good direction indication for Fable Legends for 2014. Very Excited!!!
What i have been waiting for
its been a almost a decade sence ive really enjoyed a fabel game. 2 and 3 were ok but nothing comepared to the 1st
I was when i heard about the release for this game, since Fable was my favorite game on the original Xbox. Now i wish i had researched ahead before i bought it. First off, the frame rate is pretty bad (noticeable if you look to the bottom of the screen). The camera movement is choppy, graphics aren't much different than the original, and I've been reading that the game will freeze up on you, making me hesitant to even play. I've seen rushed released before, but this is just ridiculous. Lionhead will not be getting any money from me again.
