What Fable II should have been., 29 Oct 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Unlike the previous reviewer, I've found Amazon's service exceptional like it always is. I never used to pre-order items here, due to Amazon never seeming to deliver them for the release date, however it seems that things have changed, as my order came a day early!
Now, I'm only about 2 hours into the game, but the experience so far has been incredible. The combat is much more refined and fluid than the previous game, interactions with NPC's are a lot more meaningful...and there are some tough choices that have real effect on your conciounse. I haven't participated in online co-op yet, but from reviewers, it is an incredible improvement on Fable II's co-op. You can now bring your own player, complete with items and dog, into your friends world, and vice versa. You can form business partnerships, interact with each other, and even get married and have children. And you are no longer locked to your co-op companion, you can roam wherever you want!
If you were a fan of Fable II, you will love this game even more. However, if you've never enjoyed the Fable series, there isn't much here that will convert you. It's a whimsical, silly and charming adventure...and I love it.
