Fable II - Limited Collectors Edition (Xbox 360)
Carve out a virtual life for yourself as hero or villain in the fantasy world of Fable II, where nothing is pre-determined. Create your own character, male or female, and control them over their whole lifetime. Watch as they grow up and then make the tough moral choices that will affect their abilities and how the world sees them.
|Some cities are huge, with a complex infrastructure for you to exploit|
|Acting for good or evil can have a permanent physical effect on your features|
|Guns are commonplace, but swordfighting is still vitally important|
|Not all your enemies are human in the world of Fable|
Set in the land of Albion 500 years after the first game (such that primitive guns are now in widespread use), you can either seek to rid the land of evil or conquer the realm for yourself. The game features an all new combat system, allowing you to use a range of melee and ranged weapons, while death brings only a loss of experience.
But the game need not be about fighting at all if you don’t want it to be. You can buy property and become a mayor, or get married and have children. Many games call themselves role-players, but here the nature of your role is entirely up to you.Key Features
- Game of life: Mould your own character and watch them grow into adulthood, their features changing according to the deeds they perform for good or evil.
- Virtual reality: Will you be a charming evil doer or an antisocial hero? The role you play is entirely up to you as you follow the game’s story or ignore it to do your own thing.
- New age of combat: Wield a huge range of weapons, including swords, axes, and newly available muskets. Or master a range of magic spells with up to 80 different varieties available.
- Team up: Invite a friend into your game at any time and play with them in co-operative mode.
- Best friend: Every character gets a chance to own a pet dog, one who will help you to find your way through the game world, attack enemies, or just be a good friend.
Headed by industry veteran Peter Molyneux, creator of the famous Populous and Theme Park, Lionhead are one of the UK’s best known developers. They were bought by Microsoft in 2006 and now produce games such as Black & White, The Movies, and Fable only on Xbox 360 and PC.

And it's compatible with my Xbox One, which is handy!
Shame on the makers that changed the contents of the collectors edition!!!The pre-ordered page promised lots of neat stuff in the box (like a cute hobb figurine and some other things)and then all of a sudden changed it into really boring stuff mainly already available in the game!
A lot of pre-game hysteria that really turned out to be just thin smoke!
But as a game, it's fine-just not THAT fine!
I loved the first Fable and the second one too, but the special edition is nothing it promised to be. For the extra money you are paying for a dungeon (max 20 minutes play, a sword in the dungeon (by far not the best), and a spartan suit and sword (novely wears of after 5 minutes and stats are soon outdated). there are also 2 videos on the bonus disk: one being the making of which is basically an extended version of the video diaries. The other is a movie of a hob toy changing background with music...
If thats your thing then go for it but i was a bit confused.
You also get concept art gallery which is fairly small.
The worker in Game tried to put me off it and i didnt listen. Unless you are strangely attracted to hobs i'd stick to the original version.
The original Fable 2 Limited Edition came with a download code that would let you get your hands on the (non-tradeable) Halo Armour and Sword (The rifle, Hal's Rifle, is available to all who buy the Knothole Island DLC) and the (tradeable) Wreckager Cutlass which was held in the Halls of the Dead (I think it was called) which takes about 5 minutes to complete.
If you are hoping a used or EVEN a brand new and sealed version will come with an unused code, it won't. Unless it's actually listed by other sellers as having an UNUSED Code it won't and they are not likely to make a mistake either as the codes go for a total bomb. The reason even New and Sealed versions do not come with the code is because Microsoft in it's wisdom chose at some early point to change the code from a standard included scratch card to something you had to redeem with them directly.
Microsoft will no longer issue the codes, even if you have a receipt from a registered company and appeals to Lionhead directly via telephone will yield (a very polite and friendly) no, as all power to issue the codes comes from Microsoft only.
If you are looking for a fun game this is certainly it but get it as cheap as you can, even 2nd hand works. If you enjoy it, which many, many do :) Compare the prices between the Game of the Year Edition (which is available here from Amazon) which comes with both DLC's Knothole Island and See the Future, or getting the DLC's right from Microsoft Live Marketplace, they go for about 800 points each still.
The Limited Edition does NOT come with any DLC's.
