My experience was... "Meh...",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fable III (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
I've been a fan of Lionhead for a while. My favorite game by them is Black & White 1 and 2. I played the original Fable and know how much it sucked. We were promised a world which we never got. Combat was boring after a while a the story was very linear.
Upon initially playing Fable 3 the game seems very pretty and fun. "Ooooo..." You think as you explore and kill monsters. There are certainly a lot of fun things to do, such as side-quests, designing outfits from existing clothing items, changing and dying your hair. Finding or upgrading your weapons, buying shops and working jobs for money. Then there is the romance side to things which I think is very bland and boring.
It's just after a while you realize there isn't much left to explore, you've got most of the weapons you want and the conclusion to the game is going to be quite an obvious one. What I would like from this game or the next Fable, is a bigger world to explore, more twists and turns, a better combat system! More customization for weapons and clothes.
Overall, I was very excited to play this game but felt it fell short of my expectations.
