I was wonder what every thought or things about fable 2. I got mine friday night and beat it saterday around 3 in my opinon i think it was a good but short story. I still have a tone of side quest to do but the main quests i finished. Also the achievements in it were pritty easy so far i managed to get 715gs in and about to get all of the gargoyles and im about to make 2.5 mill in house so if any one wants some help with achievements i could probley help you. If any one has any hero dolls that they will trade i will trade u something or buy them. Well just tell me what you guys thought. Very Happy

I think it was a fun game, too short though. Achievements are easy too which is a plus and a minus.

I haven't played it myself, but my brother-in-law has played it. He seems to like it, and I'll be starting it in a bit after I'm finished Assassin's Creed.

I'll throw my two cents in later.

its an alright game, but i was really let down to be honest, i thought it was madness the way the spell system changed, the expression wheel wasnt as good as the first game, and thought they shoud have focused on what made fable such a great game, this was a sub par effort imho compared to what they had to work from, another case of taking away features which made the original great, thought that there wasnt enough clothes to buy, or variety in hair stlyles and things.

no way wes, 9.8 is far too generous, the combat system is flawed not as smooth as the first there was a bit of skill involved, the magic is flawed not as good as the first, the story is watered down, not as good or as epic as the first, the clothing is no where near as good as the first, u see where im going? lol! asnd why swap the colours of the xp for strength and will, surely strength is red, and magic is blue it confuses me!

You are thinking about it way to hard man, it got me to play non stop till i had all that could be had and any game that can do that for me gets at least a 9.
As for the point 8 i love the visual style and the added dog, plus the fact you can sell and trade on line.

The one thing that keeps it from a 10 in my book is that getting all the dolls was way to much work for just 10 points of GS.

Last but not least the replay is damn near a must and i wanted to play again unlike some games that make you replay and all you are thinking is damn this sucks.

im 50/50 on this one bro, if i take fable 2 as a stand alone game as if i never even heard of fable 1 yeah i would totally agree, especially on the replay factor, the co op mode is an amazing achievement imho one of the few great co op action rpg. yeah thinking about it maybe ur right, i probably am over thinking it, these days nothing but a master piece of perfection gets a high score from me and im not talking graphics!

I thought Fable 2 blew Fable 1 out of the water. The replayability is the main factor, I found that Fable 1 had little to no replayability honestly. Fable 2 has plenty of recurring quests and a much vaster landscape. As for people who complain about the spell and combat system...the combat system moves MUCH more fluidly than the last, have you used counters, flourishes or any of the brutal style skills? As for magic, the head of Lionhead said he changed it because it cost so much to cast high level will skills in the first one, and pretty much everyone just went full strength/melee (not saying everyone did, just a generalization as he saw it). Plus, it is a bit more realistic if you think about it. It's less cheap to have to charge up a level five spell than to just be able to spam will potions and cast it over and over. Plus, you're supa-extreme hero! You shouldn't have an exhaustable amount of magic. Just my view on the game, I'm not putting anyone else's down and I'm open to other views.

I never played fable 1 so I thought this game was great.
