Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard Edition

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

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.

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.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was looking for an action/rpg game that my girlfriend would enjoy on her new 360 and came across this. Both of us enjoy games with vibrant, detailed worlds and have got many action/rpgs from the old gen consoles/pc like okami. The reviews looked decent so we ordered it for christmas and have played it on and off until it was completed at new year.

1)The graphics are just lovely. Technically they may not be the most advanced but the world is realised with great attention to detail. The countryside is lush and green (and in the autumn, ablaze with oranges and reds) while towns vary from prosperous renaissance trading cities to filthy pirate dens.

2) Gameplay is fairly intuitive, combat is simple (my girlfriend opting for the "button bashing" technique) yet slick, merging melee, ranged and magical attacks. While we understand that fable 2 isn't attempting to be a hardcore rpg game, my girlfriend complained about the lack of variety of clothing or degree of customisation of the character. She absolutely adored the dog though.

3)The main quest is rather short so don't make the same mistake of blitzing through the first half of the game in a fit of Christmas excitement like we did.The game allows you several breaks from the main quest so ensure you thoroughly explore what else the game offers in the form of side quests and sub games.

4)This game isn't perfect (some iffy getting wedged into scenery, not being able to vault over all walls issues) but you get the sense the team behind this game has had great fun creating a cheeky fantasy world full of character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than you'd think! 8 Dec 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never played Fable before and thought I'd take a gamble. Anyone who's read reviews of mine before will know I slate developers for poor games.
Farcry 2 and Too Human almost made me sell my 360!
Well, I'm happy to say that Fable 2 has been a pleasant surprise for me. The graphics are on the cartoonish side but well detailed and lavish.
The controls are great! It takes no time to master spells/swords/muskets.
I haven't been able to put this down yet. there's an engaging storyline and some dark/tongue in cheek humour. Just try getting people to like you by farting or swaying your hips! The dog as a companion is great and he sniffs out treasure etc... You do get to rely on him.
I'm playing as a good character first... the rewrds are worthwhile and levelling up doesn't take forever.
The one small complaint I had with Fallout 3 was having to spend all my money or trade in all my loot virtually just to buy enough medkits.
Not so in Fable.
The clothing options are fun and you can just spend hours in shops or raising a family or buying property.
A real surprise in all and most welcome. It's going at £19.99 now too!
Some people haven't liked it but i'm not easy to please and I think it's great.
Combat is fast paced and visually stunning. Controls are smooth and easily mastered with small learning curve.
As for the glittering trail some people have moaned about... well, just go into the options and turn it off! Sorted!

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.
