1.0 out of 5 stars A Very Terrible Game, 12 July 2010
Firstly what you must know about the Fable series is that they are all hyped up. Fable II promised that we could spend money in camps which would then make the camp more rich which would in turn build it up. Eventually the camp would turn into a village and should we help it by either spending money there or donating money to build it up it could turn into a town and one day even a city. However should you kill everyone in a camp, village, town or city eventually nature would grow over it and it would become abandoned. No such choices exist in this game. There is only one camp in the game that does something of that nature but instead of going through the process I described it is more or less a quest that you can accept or decline. Accepting it means giving 10,000 gold to get someone to build it up while declining means it will remain as a camp. Also it only turns into a town after you finish a certain point in the story and it only turns into a small village. Pathetic or what? Another system that does something of that nature as well is where regions charge more money for items and houses should you buy some houses there and do them up or where the regions charge less money for items and houses because you kill everyone there; who do re-spawn back and break the windows and doors which never get repaired but this still doesn't match what Fable II promised and the regions still look the same apart from the smashed windows and doors should you chose to break things. Another thing Fable II promised was that you will love the dog and not a lot of people did. The dog is an idiot, it gets in your way, it gets beaten up and when injured gets in your way even more. It doesn't help in fights; it only attacks an enemy when they are hit to the ground and sometimes it even attacks dead enemies which proves that the developers weren't really paying attention to how the dog fought. Interaction with it does nothing - there was no point of the dog in the game and honestly; the dog in Dragon Age is more intelligent than Fable II's dog and the dog in Dragon Age has some funny moments with your party members. The dog in this game is just annoying.

Now the combat; in the first Fable once the B button set on fire, power attacks made you unstoppable. If an enemy hit you while you performed a power attack, their attack wouldn't harm you and it would just bounce off. This added something unique to those playing the warrior. However they took this out in Fable; The Lost Chapters and it has remained that way even in Fable II. Fable II no longer offers you a power attack button or a block button and you also have to learn those two skills. So now fighting is just with one button and it is very boring. The fighting animations look glitchy as well. Fighting with a crossbow or gun is the same and requires you to roll often. The magic system is the worst magic system for a game and to cast lv 5 spells you have to hold the magic button for 30 seconds in which the enemy will have probably taken most of your health by then. Spells are boring and each spell is the same really. There are only 5 spells and each do the same thing; surround attack or ranged attack. All the spells that were in Fable are gone apart from two. So everything that was good for the first Fable; which was a bad game anyway, have been taken out making this game even badder than it would have been if the combat was the same as the first Fable.

The story is the same as the first Fable; you becoming a great hero and setting out on revenge. There are no twists and the ending is pathetic. You get one wish, you can chose what wish you want from three things and one can be obtained in the DLC so you might as well make one of the others and obtain what the other wish would have gave you in the DLC.

The first Fable offered consequence for your actions and of course that was a lie. In this and Fable you can kill as many people as you want then go and eat some food which makes you good again and everyone will love you. Be evil - nothing happens, people are scared of you, that is all but you can accept every quest and its not like people won't let you into towns or guards are ordered to kill you on sight. Be good and its the same as being evil - people like you; that is the only difference. The camp mentioned earlier on in this review is full of evil people and if you are good they still let you in even though they know you are going to kill them. Be good or be evil - people still stand at the doorway of your house and won't let you out. As an evil character you can kill them but as a good character you might not be bothered to eat 50 slices of excrement which you can buy from a trader to become good again so you have to scare them off somehow by using the battle cry expression, yet some won't even move which means you will have to kill them to progress. Speaking of NPCs they are dumb. As a person who is unknown they walk up to you even if you are in a part of the town region where no people are and they WILL FIND you and stand there for as long as you do; moaning. They do the same when you become famous and even get trapped in door ways. Interaction with them is the same as the first Fable and they repeat the same things over and over again. If you kill the people they share a house with and then come back later after eating 50 pieces of excrement and showing a trophy to them and even the whole town; they will treat you like a hero again. Pathetic or what? Eating one pie will make you overweight completely and eating some celery will make you thin again. This game is just pathetic in everything.

There are many bugs in this game. Two being game-killing bugs and others being where the NPCs vanish. Others include: Your child turning another color or changing gender or just vanishing altogether. Your wife vanishing, NPCs popping up from nowhere and many many more. The game killing bugs have been fixed but the others haven't so it is still a pathetic game. Also if you don't have Xbox live and you get this; the normal version then the bugs won't have been fixed. The bugs pretty much proved this game was rushed and just searching about its bugs will reveal thousands and thousands of complaints made on Lionhead's official forums and even other forums. The bugs even made news on game sites. Why buy a game that wasn't even tested? The bugs are so obvious that you can see the game wasn't even tested and no it is not acceptable so avoid this game and avoid Fable III which again promises things it will not publish. In fact the whole kingdom system for Fable III is just copied from Beowulf the game and Overlord I and II. Also Fable III is no longer an action RPG. Most of the RPG elements have been taken out. So that is another reason why you should avoid that game and you should also avoid this game.

Also everything in the limited edition can be gained from other players and the diaries can be obtained from online. So this was a scam to make more money for a unfinished game.

Another thing Fable II promised was that you will love the dog and not a lot of people did. The dog is an idiot, it gets in your way, it gets beaten up and when injured gets in your way even more. It doesn't help in fights; it only attacks an enemy when they are hit to the ground and sometimes it even attacks dead enemies which proves that the developers weren't really paying attention to how the dog fought. Interaction with it does nothing - there was no point of the dog in the game and honestly; the dog in Dragon Age is more intelligent than Fable II's dog and the dog in Dragon Age has some funny moments with your party members.

However they took this out in Fable; The Lost Chapters and it has remained that way even in Fable II. Fable II no longer offers you a power attack button or a block button and you also have to learn those two skills. So now fighting is just with one button and it is very boring. The fighting animations look glitchy as well. Fighting with a crossbow or gun is the same and requires you to roll often. The magic system is the worst magic system for a game and to cast lv 5 spells you have to hold the magic button for 30 seconds in which the enemy will have probably taken most of your health by then.

Pathetic or what? Eating one pie will make you overweight completely and eating some celery will make you thin again. This game is just pathetic in everything.

There are many bugs in this game. Two being game-killing bugs and others being where the NPCs vanish. Others include: Your child turning another color or changing gender or just vanishing altogether. Your wife vanishing, NPCs popping up from nowhere and many many more. The game killing bugs have been fixed but the others haven't so it is still a pathetic game. Also if you don't have Xbox live and you get this; the normal version then the bugs won't have been fixed. The bugs pretty much proved this game was rushed and just searching about its bugs will reveal thousands and thousands of complaints made on Lionhead's official forums and even other forums. The bugs even made news on game sites. Why buy a game that wasn't even tested? The bugs are so obvious that you can see the game wasn't even tested and no it is not acceptable so avoid this game and avoid Fable III which again promises things it will not publish. In fact the whole kingdom system for Fable III is just copied from Beowulf the game and Overlord I and II. Also Fable III is no longer an action RPG. Most of the RPG elements have been taken out. So that is another reason why you should avoid that game and you should also avoid this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but wait till Divinity II - The Dragon Knight Saga which includes the expansion, 11 July 2010
This review is from: Divinity 2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The RPG elements of Divinity II are great. You have several skill trees. You can focus on leveling up on one to make one class or you can level up on all or certain ones to make your own unique class so each time your class will be different. You can be an archer who is an master at two handed fighting or a Mage who is an master at wielding a two handed weapon or how about a warrior who can use attack spells? Yes you can chose whatever class you like and just like Two worlds if you don't like your choices you can change them later on in the game as long as you have the right amount of gold. Other than the skill tree, you have the regular HP, Mana, Strength, intelligence and so on that you level up as well and unlike games such as Oblivion or Fallout 3; later on in the game you will see how leveling up has made you from a novice into a true hero. Physical attacks may no longer harm you thanks to your physical resistance which can be made strong by spending points on strength and your Armor can also protect you. My first character was a Battle-Mage (Warrior and Mage) and he had most points on strength and he wore good armor and magical items and later on in the game attacks did 0 damage. My second character was a full warrior although some points for this character were spent on Intelligence and other attributes to equip certain items and this is why this character has more resistance to magical attacks but less to physical. At first in this game you may find enemies hard but later on for many many hours you will find that you can kill enemies with maybe two hits. Certain enemies may pose a threat to you (Warriors may still take a good amount of damage from magic/range attacks, Archers from Melee/Magic, Mages from Range/Melee)but you can see how your character has improved.

The combat is decent and you have the ability to assign certain skills to different buttons. The graphics in some places seem bad in the first region but in the second region the game graphics are very good everywhere. The story is what you could expect; you search for different items from all across the world to stop the enemy. The ending may be called bad by some but it is not an ending since the expansion continues it. The only cons are the graphics of some locations, the fact that there are few towns and the fact that you can't kill everyone you meet even though the game allows you to be evil in a different way and allows you to kill certain people during certain quests. Also the world is quite big in human form but as a dragon it is not. You can't fly from your Battle Tower to the Orobas Fjords even though The Battle Tower can be spotted from there and there are no massive open spaces other than Damien's flying fortresses for you travel through as your dragon form and a blocking button would have been nice. Overall this is still a good RPG and a good one for the 360 and it has some memorable music.

Anyway; avoid this version and get The Dragon Knight Saga containing the main game and expansion on disc (maybe the same disc) and unlike The Shivering Isles that were made by Bethesda, the disc will work.

A good original RPG. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage, 11 July 2010
Bethesda are just rushing out games and ten editions of the same game nowadays. The result shows in Failout 3 that they never spend time with their games developing them, bug testing them or polishing them up. Failout 3 looks and feels very outdated on the broken engine it is running on. In summary this game sucks and the reasons why are below.

Gameplay:

Bullets don't move in a straight line and act as though the wind moves them. Seriously the shooting mechanics in this game are horrible. Even with the V.A.T.S system the gameplay is horrible. Shoot a guy in the head several times and he will not die. Meanwhile your character runs very very slowly and is only able to jump 1ft into the air making exploration a tedious chore.

Story:

The story was horrible as well as being a tired rehash of the same thing we've seen countless times before. The hero's father goes missing and he sets off on a journey to rescue him.

Conclusion:

Ignore the pathetic biased 5 and 4 star reviews. Those reviews don't mention how bad the gameplay is or how DATED and BROKEN the game engine is. The story can be summed up with this: Basically your dad breaks out of a vault you and other people are kept in to be safe and because of that everyone in there tries to kill you -blaming you for the temporary faults- even though they are still safe (pathetic or what?) and next you must escape and try to find your dad and what happens to him is quite predictable. The ending is rubbish.

Oh and the game world is copy-pasted all across and is pretty small compared to the original Fallout games which were LEAGUES BETTER THAN THIS both story and gameplay wise. The old Fallout games also offered more role-playing choices. Bethesda has destroyed the series. Anyone calling this game good hasn't played the original Fallout games or are incredibly biased to them and too suffocated in their fanboism for Bethesda to realize that this pales in comparison.

One word: Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best RTS on Xbox 360, 6 July 2010
The Lord Of The Rings: Battle For Middle Eart 2 is still the best RTS on Xbox 360 even after 4 years. Even after 4 years people still play this addictive game, the PC version has mods and other improvements to the game to keep you playing as does the first game and the game itself even without mods can keep you playing for months without getting board. This game is one of the games on Xbox 360 that you can keep playing and coming back to just like the Kingdom Under Fires on Xbox.

The skirmish mode is great and basically in a way you forge your own story and can even have allies helping you, you can even make Isengard and Gondor join together. Skirmishes can even last for hours and are always enjoyable since the AI is great and at times feel realistic. The controls are great and very good for a console. The story missions are interesting and feature defending, attacking and capturing certain locations and every map features well known Middle Earth locations. The RTS elements are what you would expect for a medieval RTS game, have swordsmen flank archers and the archers will fall one by one. Catapults will destroy buildings fast and by having the catapults defended by other units, you will ensure fast victory. Other than that, there are some nice RPG elements which make the game even more interesting. Heroes in story mode will level up and continue leveling up so long as they gain EXP as do troops, sadly unlike the heroes, troops don't get carried over to the next mission, powers can be unlocked with skill points and the powers are dealt in a traditional RPG way via the skill tree so not every power can be purchased and in skirmish mode the RPG elements remain apart from after finishing a skirmish, heroes in a new skirmish will be lv 1 and you will have no powers. However there is no buying equipment for heroes like there is in Warhammer: Battle March (IMO the second best RTS on console which I recommend you get as well, however it has bad controls which take a while to learn) which allows you to upgrade your troops and keep them for the rest of the game as well, however the lite RPG elements in this game are still handled well and add a little more depth.

Conclusion:

A great RTS and the best RTS on console. It has great voice acting and good graphics (The water looks very realistic) and the powers look amazing and the sound effects are superb.

One reviewer said this is the one RTS to rule them all, I say this RTS is still ruling them all. This game is also still ruling every Lord Of The Rings game, forget Conquest which was made by a failed company, this is the best LOTR game to date and can be enjoyed by RTS veterans and beginners alike.

Beowulf (Xbox 360)

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun (but flawed) action romp for cheap, 3 July 2010
This review is from: Beowulf (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Many games based off of movies are often rubbish or mediocre. Is Beowulf the same? Sort of. With a little more time and work it could have been something else, something greater. The game was supposed to cover "30 years of Beowulf's life not seen in the movie" and that in itself had so much potential. Imagine if Ubisoft actually spent their time on this game and made it into an RPG where you can control your kingdom and complete quests. That would have been amazing but instead we get this short (but rather fun) action romp. That's what disappointed me really because I saw the potential behind the game and the ability to issue commands to your Thanes.

The gameplay itself simply consists of action-sequences. You go mission to mission fighting against hordes of enemies with your trusty thanes but there's never too many enemies to make it into a senseless mash them up and there is some platforming (climbing) and a few "puzzles" to solve with your thanes who will help you perform various tasks. The story is good which isn't surprising since it is based off of the famed Beowulf poem and the movie but other things have been added such as a fight with Amarok and a story-line which sees Beowulf defending his kingdom against an attack. Meanwhile there are two endings based on your actions throughout the game. Play as the heroic king and Beowulf with be loved by all the subjects in his kingdom. Play as the carnal king and people will all fear Beowulf by the end. On another note, the voice acting is excellent which again is no surprise since they got the voice actors from the movie to do the voices for the characters in the game.

At the price you can pick this title up for you really can't go wrong. I brought it for £5 a few years back and it was a bargain. The game is rather short (3-5 hours campaign) but you're bound to play through it at least twice or three times. In truth though, I can understand why others may have felt ripped off with the game if they brought it at £40 when it was first released.

On a few more negative notes, there could have been more combos to use in combat and the game should have given you more strategic and tactical control over your thanes. Due to the fact that there's few combos, combat can become repetitive and dull at times but there are many challenges in the game to keep you progressing and having fun even if you do encounter a few annoyances along the way. The enemies aren't really that varied either. You'll encounter bandits, trolls, shadow thanes, goblin type enemies and then you'll encounter ice trolls, and ice demons which fight exactly like bandits thus providing no variety in enemy attacks (even the designs are similar in many enemies asides from a few color differences and a other minor aesthetic differences).
