Great fun game, reminds you of your childhood....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fable 2 : Classics (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Someone recommended I get this game recently, I'm a huge fan of role playing games, anything from Grand Theft Auto to Fallout so I thought I'd give Fable 2 a try. Having completed it a few days ago, I thought to myself, what a great game. Although it does contain killing, its not bloody or violent, it reminds me of a game I'd play during my childhood. It was refreshing to play something different and fun. Who doesn't love going from town to town shooting goblins? haha. The game follows the character Sparrow, it starts as she's a little girl, you do a few easy tasks to familiarize yourself with the controls etc then eventually your a grown-up. Oh and you can choose between a male or female character. I loved many things about the game. The colour, setting and details were amazing, look out for a town called Oakfield!. There are quests you can complete either once or there are some quests you can do a few times. You can also buy items from a merchant called Murgo (i think) and when you select them you play an extra mini game of sorts. Throughout you'll earn experience points, buy businesses and properties, find treasure chests and you have a dog which can change breeds and dig up treasure for you. There's so much more!
The only things that let the game down would be the way the character moves, which can sometimes feel sluggish (you know what I mean when you play), also, pressing start to get to the menu can be slow and you want it to be instant so you can do things quickly (like take potions etc). Finally, what I wanted more than anything was for this game to flow a little better. I suppose being used to GTA and Fallout being mostly one huge open space, with this game, between towns and places and quests its constantly loading, which lets it down a little. As well as that I would have liked it to be a bigger game, e.g. more towns and places to visit, having said that you wont be short of things to do, there's plenty of money making jobs.
Tip for you - if you want more money, save the game, go to xbox dashboard, put your clock forward a few years and voila! Instantly rolling in it, the game is earning you money even when your not playing, so everytime you go back on it gives you cash. Do this ^ and you'll be loaded!
Overall - great fun game, would definitely recommend you purchase!
