There will always be people hating games so don't listen to people saying "Its going to be great!" or "It's going to suck!" because they cannot give you real proof until the game is actually out! If you want to buy it then buy it.
If you loved Fable 1 (Like me!) then buy this because this will most likely be just like it but better and more content. If you have never played it before then wait until you hear a lot more reviews.
I just cannot wait for this game! I loved Fable so much i couldn't stop playing it!
It is true that Fable failed to live up to its hype but Fable 2 has already been played by some gaming magazines and other journalists and they have confirmed that Fable 2 does live up to its hype and that it is a groundbreaking game. Although it is dissapointing that the online content will not be available straight away and i think this is the only bit of hype that isn't true and they're trying to fix that.
The original Fable game was a bit too short but the Lost Chapters in the Classics range was much better. More weapons were added, a whole new set of missions after Jack in a new land. Things like those books could be donated to the school as well as new side missions.
It was a better experience really, so you should base your opinion on what was a bit more intended as the finished product.
Ben is 100% right. Fable was as long or as short as you wanted it to be. One thing I won't be doing with fable 2 is rushing straight through it. I'm going to take my time and enjoy. Fable is a classic. Lost Chapters was better. Fable 2 should be great. It's worth buying for the voice acting alone.
This is a great game, the best part of it is you have the freedom to control the character's destiny in anyway you see fit you obviously took the 'finish life quickly and feel bitter about it' option. I think most people will get a lot of joy out of this game.
fable 2 is a brilliant game. its just abit annoying how they exadurate the game for example open world (a mixture of small areas with miles of unplayable area inbetween), complete freedom (oh no i cant seem to be able to jump over that 1 foot tall wall). you can have a family (that dont do anything except give you crappy gifts or divorce you). still love it but should of been more like the original should of. and the story isnt as good as the first one.
