Manufacturer's Description

Carve out a virtual life for yourself as hero or villain in the fantasy world of Fable II, where nothing is pre-determined. Create your own character, male or female, and control them over their whole lifetime. Watch as they grow up and then make the tough moral choices that will affect their abilities and how the world sees them.
Some cities are huge, with a complex infrastructure for you to exploit
Acting for good or evil can have a permanent physical effect on your features
Guns are commonplace, but swordfighting is still vitally important
Not all your enemies are human in the world of Fable

Set in the land of Albion 500 years after the first game (such that primitive guns are now in widespread use), you can either seek to rid the land of evil or conquer the realm for yourself. The game features an all new combat system, allowing you to use a range of melee and ranged weapons, while death brings only a loss of experience.

But the game need not be about fighting at all if you don’t want it to be. You can buy property and become a mayor, or get married and have children. Many games call themselves role-players, but here the nature of your role is entirely up to you.

Key Features
  • Game of life: Mould your own character and watch them grow into adulthood, their features changing according to the deeds they perform for good or evil.
  • Virtual reality: Will you be a charming evil doer or an antisocial hero? The role you play is entirely up to you as you follow the game’s story or ignore it to do your own thing.
  • New age of combat: Wield a huge range of weapons, including swords, axes, and newly available muskets. Or master a range of magic spells with up to 80 different varieties available.
  • Team up: Invite a friend into your game at any time and play with them in co-operative mode.
  • Best friend: Every character gets a chance to own a pet dog, one who will help you to find your way through the game world, attack enemies, or just be a good friend.
About the Developer: Lionhead Studios
Headed by industry veteran Peter Molyneux, creator of the famous Populous and Theme Park, Lionhead are one of the UK’s best known developers. They were bought by Microsoft in 2006 and now produce games such as Black & White, The Movies, and Fable only on Xbox 360 and PC.

Product Description

Set 500 years after the original game, Fable 2 offers even more choices and features, while building on the core gameplay theme of Fable where every choice continually defines who you become, allowing you to truly live the life you choose.

  • Choices, consequences. The innovative gameplay pioneered in the original Fable provided gamers with a never-before-seen level of immersion in a truly interactive world. Fable 2 expands upon the scope and depth of the Xbox classic by adding incredible new features and creating a wider, more complex kingdom of limitless choices and consequences.
  • A land far, far away. Revisit the sprawling world of Albion more than 500 years after the events of the original Fable, where you are free to explore the landscape and openly roam the countryside. For the right price every house, hut, dungeon and castle is for sale.
  • Fight with ease. Fable 2 pioneers a new combat system designed to allow players to truly master hand weapons such as swords and maces, ranged combat weapons such as bows and guns, and an entirely new magic system. These three disciplines, while very accessible, are also amazingly deep, and allow players to mix combat styles and become everything from master swordsman to skilled ranger to evil magic wielder.
  • A hero's best friend. This groundbreaking addition to the game is integral to the theme of unconditional love in Fable 2. The canine companion will act as friend, compass and protector. Players must merely feed their pooch and he will love unconditionally, creating a bond that sets up emotion-filled journeys all throughout this magical world.
  • Experience the world together. For the first time in the Fable series, gamers can experience the expansive and immersive world of Fable 2 with friends, utilising the new and exciting Dynamic Co-Op Mode, bringing the long-awaited multiplayer function to the world of Fa

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels a little rushed... 29 Oct 2008
By Reader
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the original Fable more times than I can remember and loved it so I was eagerly awaiting the release of Fable 2. The reviews in various gaming magazines, coupled with various teasers were hyping this to be the game of the year.

When I first put the game on, I was reminded of the first Fable, where as a child you complete various easy tasks to earn a bit of gold before you can progress the game. This is where you're introduced to your dog. It's also here, like in the first Fable, you'll get your first taste of the various choices of morality you can make.

After a few events which I don't want to spoil, you're suddenly a man or woman, out to save Albion. There is no actual combat tutorial, although it's fairly straight forward. Melee, ranged and magic attacks are controlled by their own buttons. The magic is meant to have been simplified. On one hand it has - they've taken away most of the spells. You're left with (if I remember correctly) about 8 or 10 base spells which you can upgrade through the usual accumulating XP orbs. On the other, I found the magic more difficult to get the hang of in this one. Too much fiddling about with stupid little icons trying to work out which icon is which spell. It doesn't help that they're all a blue colour. At least in Fable 1 you knew the wee orange blob was probably fire and that the white jagged thing was lightning. Here you have a blue jaggy thing, a blue line, a blue wobbly thing.... You'll also maybe find like we did that even on an HD TV, the icons and instructions on screen are too small to read.

Combat (especially melee) is much more violent and your flourish movements will show bandits having their guts ripped open. In terms of violent content, it's not GTA, but it's not a cute kiddie game either.

4.0 out of 5 stars JUST SHORT OF CLASSIC - BUT EXCELLENT WILL DO 31 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The reason I have not gifted this title with the full 5 star treatment falls down to the fact that I am pretty much through my second outing. The first time I played this game I would have awarded it full marks, indeed it is utterly charming and a true sequel in every sense of the word, but it just falls short of the mark and here is why...

The game world of Fable is a truly unique one, and nothing can be really compared to it in terms of outlay, style and humour. Peter Molyneux himself said that this was the one game that truly summed up who he is. In that case then, Peter, you are special arent you?
And yes, Fable 2 is special. It offers the player a fantasy world and, pretty much, an open script of how they want to go about their lives. Now this has been done many times before...the whole open ended gameplay scenario is not new, although it is tried and tested more than enough. The most important thing that developers need to do is balance storyline with playtime and freedom. Fable 2 almost gets it right in one department but falls very short in the other. The storytelling, especially concerning the main quest, is very linear and it has a few holes in it. Compared against the first game ( the story in that game was a bit rugged too) the sequel has not improved itself unfortunately. The main quest story offers the player a sense of destiny but its sooooo obvious that the developers have channeled their energies and creative minds into the other areas of the game, and thus the whole story feels somewhat hollow and unsubstantial...

Negativity aside the true colours of Fable 2 come to shine in every other aspect of the game. Yippee!
The play area of Albion, this time round, is more than double that of the first game. Infact its clocked up to being ten times the size.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game I've played in a while 24 Oct 2008
By S
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before getting hold of Fable 2 I'd seen a few interviews with Peter Molyneux hyping up this game and I was a little concerned that it wasn't going to live up to his hype, but IMO, it does. After just a few minutes of gameplay I was hooked.

Graphically Fable 2 looks great and the story is superb. What surprised me is the depth of the game. For example, you can purchase a house and rent it out, raise the rent, redecorate, evict the tenants, get engaged and move in with your partner, get married and have kids, get divorced. You get the picture!

Despite the depth, it is very easy to pick up and play. A sparkly trail leads you to your current destination (which can be switched off in the options I believe), but you have the option of switching missions at any time, or ignoring the sparkly trail altogether and wandering off to do your own thing. The missions I've played so far have all been good fun and there's plenty of humour thrown in there which is nice to see. The difficulty curve isn't too steep either, ramping up at a reasonable pace.

Combat is fun, with a number of close combat weapons to purchase, along with ranged weapons such as crossbows, pistols and shotguns, and a number of spells. You can earn money by taking various jobs, by renting properties out, completing missions, or by finding treasure chests or digging up bags of gold pieces, all of which enables you to purchase new weapons, clothing, food, properties and so on.

Throughout the game your dog joins you on the missions. He'll sniff out buried treasure which you can then dig up, or attack enemies that you've knocked to the ground.
