Rated 9 out of 10 by T13M4N1 a great game for people who get into the character
i just finish the game, and for all of you who think the game sucks, think again. although the demo is poor, the real thing gives everything i like in a game. there is action, love, suspense, heart breaking moments, and to top it, it tells you about the older fable games. to me, it was a 4+hour game. the game made me feel like i was Gabriel (main character) because the Kinect makes it first person. sometimes i almost cried, but the best parts are at the end. for the game, you ether like it or not. you cant be in the middle. so for all of you who dont know if you want it or not , look at a gameplay on youtube or here. i guarantee you will love it. and if a birthday or holiday is coming up, try getting this if you have the kinect. i give this an overal of 8 out of 10. oh yah, if you think the game went to fast, try the arcade mode.

...nothing gained. I am pleased that Lionhead is moving with the times and giving us a Fable while still trying out the new gaming engine. Face it, people, you'd be a lot more upset if they'd paused Fable for a couple of years while they mucked around with the Kinect and all its capabilities.
As soon as I heard the new Fable was going to come out on Kinect, I told my mom and we ran to Gamestop the same day, turning in our Wii and all its games for the Kinect addition. Haven't been disappointed since, I might add!
I am very pleased with the character they gave our Hero, he is no prissy pushover who faints from danger. He is loyal, a little snarky, goal oriented, and a dreamer who doesn't flinch from Hobbes trying to blow him up. All good things to have in a Hero if you can't be making one yourself! Theresa also has a much bigger role in this title,yay!!! She and our Hero butt heads in a very amusing way.
I was smiling and laughing and ducking with cries of "AH! HOBBE!" and getting my heartrate all up as the bad guy was chasing me just like in every other Fable game.
Am very pleased with the story progression and the addition to my Kinect shelf. Excellent X-mas gift.
Rated 8 out of 10 by DeJay99 The end of one story is the beginning of another.
Fable the Journey gives the player a good experience and is better then many kinect games controller wise. I did have some troubles aiming but once I got used to the way the game had me hitting and aiming I had a pretty good hit rate. The graphics were a little less real then most games today but that was not necessary a bad thing. The story line did have many clinches but was still interesting. This game also gave a summary of the past games in relation to Thersa and how her character came to be. Those of use who have played the last 3 games will not be bored with the recap because new information is given to us. Fable the Journey focused on both an ending and a beginning. Pay attention and you will see/hear many jokes, interesting puzzles and places that those have play the past games remember.
Rated 2 out of 10 by MaxwellLOVESFable Fable has failed us
Decided to buy the game and give it a try. Since all of the other Fables were excellent, I was sure that everyone was getting upset over a game that may very well be new, refreshing and packed with fun. Oh boy, was I wrong! The storyline is dumb IMO. The graphics aren't really that great and it's tough to see what direction the road goes and steer correctly when you're galloping and collecting power ups or running from something. There is no free roaming. You can't buy a house and you cannot choose your character. i used to like taking breaks from the storyline to mess around in different towns. Can't do that. Yes, they designed it so that you can sit, but that even sucks because I have to use my kitchen chair and sit perfectly straight up. Forget relaxing in your recliner people, the kinect can't read you when you are in a comfortable position. After a half hour of game play, I got up and left the room to get the blood running back into my butt cheeks and grab a drink. When I went back to the game, the kinect couldn't read me right and then made the game near impossible to play. Frustrated, I turned it off. I don't know if i even want to continue playing this game. If you love Fable, DON'T buy this game!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Jared822 Buy, Play, and then Return.
This game is good for 1 play through ONLY. This is a end of all of the fables, ALL. Because they made it for the kinect it made fables free roaming and choices of future.e.g you can't choose if you wan't to be good , normal, or evil. there are no more weapons, just spells. You don't get to choose any location of where you go. Only a straight mission play-through. The game play can be amusing but does't make up for the lack of options for the game. Another horrible thing is sometimes the kinect will just not read you body at all, so then you just die or something bad happens.(This is the biggest problem when driving the carriage, or for casting spells, or defending from an enemy.) Also the voice recognition is horrible and rarely hears you, or it will mess up.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Shoop Horrible game
Love the Fable franchise. Great story lines and game play. Then came this debacle. This game is horrible in every way. Driving a cart while waving your arms around is boring at best and stupid at worst. No game play, just an exercise in kinect and even in that aspect it fails. Fable should never have marred their otherwise great series with this morbid and absolute failure. I HATE THE FACT THAT I BOUGHT IT, but am keeping it only to remind me how bad games can be and to never trust a game because you loved it predecessors. The disc for this game is a coaster; but only if used upside down so nobody knows you were dumb enough to actually pay for this stupid, stupid loser of a game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Damianll Terrible Idea
A lot of game franchises create a game like this. They have a great series going, as did Fable, but they decide to drastically change the scope of the game. This game only has Fable in the name and not the game. Creating a "Kinect" only game was a terrible idea, but we Fable fans must sit through this until they realize that this was not the way to go (which they more than likely have already figured out). Fable is a great series and it has not been lost. This is merely a setback which is common with a series such as this. I will not buy this game as I did with Fables 1-3, but I am not losing hope on the idea of Fable because it will return in due time.

Me and my wife have always pre-ordered and bought all the Fable games. This will be the first time that we do not do so. The fact that you require Kinect to play is very saddening. The Kinect has never been reliable and in my opinion took away from video games. We grew up with controllers and will die with either controllers or virtual reality gaming rooms. The Kinect is not only slow responding but demands you be a certain distance from the Kinect. How does this work for people who have a small gaming room, people who live in trailors, and people who lan party. We want our games to have controllers. Save the Kinect for the kid games and pre-teens.
Rated 0 out of 10 by KingOfAlbion The demo stopped me the day before i ordered it.
This game...Fable 1, Great, Fable 2, great, Fable III, Wonderful, Fable the journey, Awful. I thought it would have at least a hint of open ended gameplay, But it doesn't, No swords, No Guns, Just magic, Magic that hurts your arms, and no other option but using it. This game completely walks for you, It doesn't let you explore, make your own decisions, or do anything but, You guessed it, Magic. It's "Kinect Advent***s" with a story. I'm gonna go order Assassins Creed III now, Not even gonna think about buying this "wonderful" game I held on to cash I could have used for something better for for a month. You shouldn't either!
