Not a Fable game...
on 17 October 2012
In comparison to all the other Kinect games out there, Fable: The Journey is one of the best despite it's flaws. Yes it may be repetitive, and it could probably have been better called "Fable: Some Dude Rides a Horse...A Lot", but the controls and story show a quality and depth that have been lacking from other Kinect games.
However, in comparison to other Fable games it's terrible. The entire game is completely on rails, there are no "good or evil" choices, no exploration of the world, and pretty much nothing that made the previous games so good.
So yeah, come at this with no expectations and you have a decent Kinect game. Come at it expecting Fable sequel and you will be frustrated, disappointed, and may spend the evening curled up in a ball crying to yourself when you remember how much you spent on it. Because, no, this game is not worth the price (but what Kinect games are?)
