Fable 2
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 26, 2010

The official sequel to Fable, Lionhead Studios’ popular role-playing game for the Xbox platform, Fable 2 takes place 500 years after the original. Improved graphics allow users to experience the fictional world of Albion in richer detail, and enhanced game play provides players with “limitless” choices—and corresponding consequences. Fable 2 also features a new combat system, in which players can become masters in either handheld or range combat weapons, as well as a new magic system, providing the opportunity for players to mix and match for a whole new level of fighting. Fable 2 also provides players with a faithful pooch companion to help them through the game, and the Dynamic Co-op mode facilitates multiplayer action, so you can share your quest with friends. And for those who want even more, the Knothole Island and See the Future add-ons offer additional adventure and features. Features improved graphics for true immersion in ... PROS: (1) LGBT players can marry same-sex partners in-game for a very inclusive world. (2) Controls are simple to learn, makes fighting with 3 styles (magic, melee, ranged) all-at-once a breeze. (3) Can explore more"off the pat" areas than previous Fable; not as many invisible barriers. (4) Can continue playing after main story is finished. (5) Can play with friends on-line; includes co-op achievements. ... CONS: (1) Game is full of little glitches. (2) Second player on one console must play as a"henchma"; cannot use own character from profile. (3) Enemies can be predictable, the same ones always spawning in the same areas. (4) Main storyline too short for older players; doesnt take long before character is maxed out.

An interactive fable
4 Star Review   By member mchenowe - Dec 2, 2008   

Strengths: Incredible art design and graphics, progressive combat

Weakness: Morality system that assumes the weird developers ideals

Fable 2 is a great game. The storybook look to the world and characters is done well. It reminds me of Dickens stories. The open choices, adventuring, and combat are entertaining. However, some of the developers strange morals seep into the game. It's a damper to an otherwise great game when your character suffers obesity simply from eating meat. Still, it is one of the better games out right now.

Great Game
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Wide open story. Kid Friendly

Weakness: Addictive

This is a great game. Think of it as Zelda with modern graphics and upgrades. The best game I have played in years. You have a chance to choose if you want to be good, bad or somewhere in between. There is so much to explore the game can last much longer than most.

Slightly Better Than The First Fable
4 Star Review   By member markc72 - Nov 12, 2008   

Strengths: Easy game-play, Many quests, long game.

Weakness: Graphics are outdated and combat is a little too easy.

I really liked the first Fable and this one only extends me liking this one even more. The game flows very well and there are many missions to work as well as the side missions. This game should take around 40 hours to finish if you do just about everything. 20 hours if you do maybe half the tasks. The co-op just doesn't work very well in this game and is a little bit of a let down in my opinion. Camera doesn't work very well and the sense of accomplishment is lacking. The graphics are pretty lacking too as it almost could pass as an orignal Xbox game in some cases. It is an enjoyable game as long as you look past some of that. The combat and leveling up is fun and it is a really good adventure game. I highly suggest anyone give it a shot.
