by iNINJA ...those are improvements?
Okay, my experiance with Fable III is that of a fan being generally dissapointed. In all the fable games, you really felt a sort of connection to the charecter and the world of albion, like you were in control. Not in this game. Reason 1: no expression wheel. they took it out! Now, instead of choosing from thumbs up, laugh, etc, you get three randomized choices. I ended up waltzing with other dudes for a better price on a sword more than i liked... Reason two: Weapon evolution. While this was cool and made relatively interesting weapons, it eventually took out the variety. evolving one melee weapon evolves the rest, and same with the ranged, etc. They shouldve made it to where all the weapons evolved as you used them, not all at once. And even weapons you haven't bought still evolve simultaneosly, taking out a lot of the variety. It was cool, but the way they implemented it into the game SUCKED. Reason three: the magic. There were SO FEW SPELLS that magic fusing was not worth it. not to mention that only the fire and lightning spells dealt decent damage with speed. Also, THERE IS NO GOOD PATH. If you make everyone happy, THEY ALL DIE. I'm not going to spoil it, but if you become a hero there is nobody around to like you. However, being evil saves everybodys lives and they end up hating you anyway. Also, the quest variety and witty humor was slightly less evident, along with the fact that levelling all the way up is too easy. It still is a fun game, but Lion heads "improvements" almost ruined it. I also prefered the "I'm an Adventurer" approach compared with the "i am king" approach. Oh, and the fact that your guy talks on his own with no control by you is annoying and makes you feel even less connected to this world. So... Don't buy it unless you simply must play a new fable game.

Rated 8 out of 10 by GaminSince86 A RPG in its own class.
I truely understand why so many people are dissapointed with this game. Like some of the others on here I have played Fable 1 and 2. For what ever reason it does seem like the series is getting worse. I believe people are a little to hard on it, because of their disappointment compared to the first two games. If your thinking about buying this game then you should, because its not as bad as people make it out to be. I personally felt like Fable 2 was the best. Fable III's combat and multiplayer has improved from Fable 2's I think, but where it gained in some areas it lost in others. For me the Fable series is in its own rpg class and has always had the "potential" for greatness. Its not like any other rpg on the market. If you haven't played the series before then I would recommend playing both Fable games for a good rpg experience. As with any game its a matter of preference weither you'll like it or not, but its not a bad disfunctional game that some people are making it out to be.
Rated 2 out of 10 by kamikaze505 Fable Butchered
Strip Fable 2 and replace experience points and expressions with weak similarities and you have Fable 3. No challenge in gaining weapons, armor, or wealth. Instead of working toward a certain outcome/look, it is pretty much laid out for you. Guild seals replace experience points, no inventory like in previous Fables, and powers are determined through gauntlets; unable to assign powers/items to buttons. . Graphics are ok, but freedom is limited more than previous fables. Minor obstacles cause you to go around them instead of just being able to hop/walk/run over them. pretty much should have left the aspects of the previous Fable alone and just choose a solid story line. Not what I expected at all. Sorry to say some of the designers of this new fable shouldn't be designing games. One of the most annoying expressions is the "hold hand" expression. Who ever came up with that is one of those designers who shouldn't be designing. I anticipated this new Fable to be awesome, only to be let down.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Sytx Buy Used, or less than $20
Some love this one, some hate. The core elements are still there, make decisions and stuff changes, you have weapons and kill stuff and have to do with the guild again. Beyond that it's very different. The leveling system is like "RPG's for dummies", you get points you use to open chests that contain your skills on a "Road to Rule" or something. The Navigation is bad, the little gold cocaine trail is still there but not the map from your inventory and my cocaine dust occasionally glitches. All the jobs are essentially the same thing. It feels so simplified like it's a game for toddlers now... but the rating is still M so no idea. The quests feel shorter and the sense of humor seems drier. Also the weapons don't feel equal at all, I can go on a killing spree easily where in the previous it was more difficult.
The first and second are great, buy those and enjoy before you try this one. I do recommend it, but mainly just to see what happens in the story line for those into that aspect.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Puppeteer666 Amazing Game!
This is an amazing game. The gameplay is a huge step up from Fable II. It rolls smoothly. It is addicting, how fun it is. You will be spending hours in the game, but you wont be able to put the controller down. If it's not main missions, it's side missions, if it's not side missions, it's jobs. If it's not jobs, it's relationships! Every amazing game has it's flaws sadly. I personally thought that fable 2 was better, for very minor things. Things like, character detail. When you are an evil cold hearted person, It REALLY shows in fable 2. In Fable 3, you can't go TOO evil, it keeps it more realistic. Some people like this though. Also, the game is REALLY short, or atleast for me it was. I do love the fact that you can actually touch people, hold their hand and lead them places, makes you feel like you are in Albion. After all, who doesn't like being touched by a hero? After the very minor flaws, I still would recommend this game to ANYONE that is into hardcore RPGs.
Rated 7 out of 10 by OMGItsWeso Fun new Fable, still getting smaller.
I have been into the Fable franchise ever since I got Fable: Lost Chapters for original xbox, which I still have, I bought Fable 2, and a month after release I got Fable 3. As with sequels, the game looks different but still has that Fable feel. There are pro's and con's with this new game. THe expressions have gotten a revamp, now using touch to better convey these things rather than just blow a kiss to a character you actually kiss them. Expressions are thrown in random order so there's a downside. Sorry I couldn't say more good things. The game has definitely gotten shorter from the last game. One good day is enough to blow right through the first half to get to being king. I was disappointed with the royalty half of the game, with you just sitting on a throne holding "A" or "X". Good game, just lacking in content. Still a fun game to play with your brother just not gonna last so long. **PS You can to buy black dye from Xbox Market. It's not in the actual game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kinassassin Fun game to pass time
I love RPG games, any shape and size. I didn't originally start with the first 2 fables, I just jumped right into the 3rd, and I was a little dissappointed to find out I didn't really need to play the first 2 to understand this game. There were a few references, but otherwise, Fable 3 might as well have been called "Fable: Just like the first but with new graphics and new people." Set aside that back step, I really enjoyed the game. I liked how you could follow the story, or go on a bunch of side quests and helped make albion more real. The combat is simple one button fighting, but its great to switch between a sword, then pull out a gun, and finish an opponent with magic. In short, Fable 3 is a great game to sit down and play when you're bored or want a good RPG. You can choose to be a tyrannt or a loveable king, but either way the story ends practically the same. This game is fun to play and I would recommend it, but don't expect some grand sequel type game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Loyalist Juvenile Story and Content
For a Mature rated game, I found the story and content to be very immature and juvenile. Graphics and sound are superb, as well as the voice acting. John Cleese has done voice work for several games now (some of which based upon the Monty Python mythos) and as a comedic actor excels as usual.
Adult gamers may feel their intelligence insulted by the juvenile nature of the game. Farting, puking, chicken suits, and so forth is to be expected. Rather ridiculous really. The story line drives you toward being good rather than evil... however you do have the choice to be evil as advertised.
If I were thirteen years old, I would probably love this game.
But then again... because of some questionable adult content that only the most lonely among the gaming community would be enthusiastic about... I wouldn't be able to buy and play this (MATURE) game.
All in all; A very good game. It is just that Saturday morning cartoons will appear far more cerebral by comparison.
