After reading rave previews and numerous publicity articles about what this game was going to contain I was let down by what was not there.I was expecting this game to surpass what Morrowind had brought into the genre but ... :(
The whole thing is so linear the only way to do anything in the game is not to follow the plot till you can do no more.
Suitable, for those new to RPG and still like the hack and slash thing, but for hard core RPG gamers rent it or borrow it for a weekend.

First point if you have to buy this get it second hand as it isn't worth the £40 new and really isn't a good outcome for 4 years of development.
Graphics and sound are excellent.
Thats it.
The game is linear and before anyone complains about me saying that - yes you can get married and trade and get drunk but it gets you nowhere and does nothing for you - the quests are generally kill the bad guys and escort people.
Ok you think, so you can walk anywhere like they said. Wrong. Invisible barriers stop you from doing that too.
So what you actually get for your money is a very linear game that is really easy to finish with the right weapon.
Not a good thing to show your mates when you say it was developed for 4 years, and not a good example of classic x-box gaming.
My advice is to rent it as you'll complete it in the two days a rental allows.
Oh and last thing, as its basically hack and slash, if you're after that buy Enclave as it does it better. If you want the freedom this game promised buy Morrowind as that actually does have the freedom to explore.
Maybe Lionhead Software should hold their heads in shame and rethink their strategy.

From all what I heard I expected a lot better from this game.
The character you play is characterless - personalityless and I really couldn't care for him. The initial belief was that you could mould his character and make him unique - but the only thing you could really change about him was whether he was good or evil which didn't really effect the storyline at all.
Getting married and buying houses were boring, you couldn't really talk to people and had no control what was said.
The graphics were good, game play ok but it was nothing spectacular.

When so much has been promised for so long! what a shame. My advice? Invest in the Game of the Year Edition of Morrowind. The people at Lionhead studios should have, at least to see how a RPG should be done. With all the fancy gimicks of ageing and alignment modifiers on looks etc... the game fails to deliver on playability and this, surely, should have been the point.
If I hadn't read every review in sooooo many magazines eagerly awaiting for a firm release date maybe i wouldn't have been so disappointed.
Still there's always Halo 2 to look foreward to.

Oh dear. I was so looking forward to this game. The concept of a game based upon the maxim "for every action a consequence" (to quote the advertising campaign)was surely going to revolutionise the gaming world? Wrong. Fable is a massive disappointment. Once the novelty value of chatting up endless hordes of (seemingly cloned) women, going to the tavern, drinking too much beer, getting hammered and throwing up everywhere wears off, there is really very little for the gamer to enjoy. The Plot? Laughably simplistic and totally uncompelling. Characterisation? Not a chance - think cardboard cut-out seen-it-all-before fantasy stereotypes. All in all......DO NOT BUY THIS GAME UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! Got the message?

Since hearing about Project Ego 2 years ago i have been waiting for this game ever since. My anticipation was almost as high as Halo 2. What a fool i was. It took me 12 hours to complete and i was trying to squeeze as much out of this as possible. Even if it was longer it wouldnt be much better. It just isnt that interesting.

The product description of this game is wrong. i dont mean to spoil the game but your father is not a hero.HE IS A SIMPLE VILLAGE WOODSMAN. your family was taken because bandits were looking for you in your childhood home. you as your child self hide and are not seen. you do travel across albion, but not until you complete training at the special place. but enough about the product description, the game itself is a credit to lionhead studios and they deserve every1s concragulations. the graphics the gripping storyline every last detail is great. the only critisim is that it is not long enough and that is why i have given a 4 star instead of 5. really an rpg of this magnitude should take weeks of hardcore gaming and after 8hours 37 minutes i was staring at the end credits in disbelif. but it is a must buy and is awesome to play (especially getting drunk all the time) thanks (ps let the end credits to the very end for a surprise)

After all the rave previews/reviews, i waited outside my local store to purchase the juggernaut that was to be Fable unfortunatley its more like a sinclair C5. I have never been so dissapointed in a game ever. It is so dull it reminds me of the fellowship of the ring trot about do a quest up your stats do another quest,tedium in the extreme. It is claimed that no game is ever the same, but eventually you need to to do the main quests so you do have to follow the path led by the designers eventually.There are some humorous comments as well as expressions including farting however these wear very thin. Avoid this title at all costs.

Ordered this game along with fable 2 and 3. they are fine, and working well.
however, not knowing what i was doing, lol, i failed to notice this game does not say x-box360, just bought the x-box360 bundle from amazon same time as ordering these games. Before my daughter opens fable i would really like to know if you can play it on the x-box360?
If not i will be returning it, un-opened .

Thank you in advance of your help
