    Default Fable 2: Opinions

    I've seen a few old threads about this game, but nothing since its release so made this one to get your opinions.

    Saw the advert on TV and it looked pretty interesting so I was just wondering if it's any good.

    All opinions appreciated.

    Thanks

    Bought it today and I must say it is really good. You will probably like it seen as you like Runescape etc... It's basically like that but better. So much stuff to do, story is very detailed, graphics are amazing and the freedom you have is what makes it really!

    Excellent game. It's really fun single player and it's easy to pick up and play with intuitive controls. The multiplayer is alright, however the fixed camera angle makes it a bit of a hassle but that could well be fixed in an update. The story is a little short but the world is pretty big and there are plenty of side missions to get stuck into.

    Only things to critisise in my opinion were that the game was short and prone to random freezing (although this only happened to me twice I hear from others that it can happen far more often).

    All in all it's a great game, worth the money without question.

    It is an excellent game. I got the Limited Edition (H.A.L.O Armor, Energy Sword, Legendary Cutlass, New place to explore). Quite a lot of fun running around as Master Chief, killing indiscriminantly, especially with the targeting system for the rifles.

    10/10. Definitely worth buying

    Thanks everyone, due to the lack or negative critism here I'll probably be buying this tomorrow

    It's a great game, been playing it way too much

    very easy to get into ... not too sure how to describe it ... but then I've never played Fable ... it's not an RPG like Oblivion/Fallout3 or the FF series, more like Tomb Raider really in it's play style but with RPG elements I guess

    combat is great ... the single button thingy works a treat

    the story is very good (what I've done of it so far)

    the whole thing can be as involved or as removed as you want, as in lots of little bits to play with if you can be bothered, as in houses, families, clothing dyes ... lots of stuff

    Oh and lots of amazing British humour ... just to give you a hint at what the humour is like when you play the game read what the warrants say on them when your a kid.

    BUY IT

    yeah your welcome to join me in co-op, you need to be an adult first though as co-oping between an adult and a kid is a 'bit' buggy ... rumoured to wipe the adult character sometimes ... done a bit with Notorious ... he helped me out with a decent weapon and some cash

    could do the same for you if you come to my world for a bit as my character now earns a few grand every five minutes from all the properties she owns ... you even earn money while your xbox is turned off as it uses the internal clock of the 360!

    You can also manipulate the system if you so desire. I think my character rakes in about 15k every few minutes and I haven't played it in a week so there should be a nice sum waiting for me next time.

    Game keeps randomly crashing for no apparent reason Snow still falls but none of the buttons do anything except the xbox button

    it's not worth cheating with the clock as it's easy to get money.

    As to the crashing speed you should try the lionhead forum ... might give you some answers ... there does appear (unfortunately) to be a 'few' bugs !

    Right finnaly got the game.

    Few thing, the fighting i'm not that impressed with but I think it will get better as the game goes on, Its all a bit 'can only do one thing' kind of fighter.

    Can't work out the co-op but haven't tried that hard, just came up as an orb thing.

    Graphics are stunning though, story is great (begining is a bit cheesy ) and the whole thing looks huge. Need to play it way more to get a proper idea of the game but looks good.


    Quick question though, what can you do on Live?

    Yes you learn more melee weapon moves as your xp increases (if you use it that way ... brutal styles I think) and with the ranged weapons (pistols/crossbows/rifles) you get targeting at higher xp

    the orbs are other players ... you walk up to an orb and you can interact, either just chat or join their world of they join yours. Unforunately you can't take your hero to another world ... if you join another players world you join as a henchman/woman which you have a few selections in terms of look and weapons. The host then assigns how much xp and money as a percentage the henchman will get. This includes money you make from houses and shops so can be a very good way of giving friends cash. Oh also you can gift people items including weapons. And as far as I'm aware it's the full on game in co-op where you can join them on the story quests, although I'm not entirely sure as when me and Notorious did it we just went on a wander and a killing spree.

    Oh and different peoples worlds might be different depending upon the choices they made at various points in the game.

    I think you can engage missions Co-op I just didn't bother. Either way linking up with a higher level player is a good way to rake in XP.

    @Pherelas if you get stuck and need a new weapon or anything let me know.

    I am so torn about getting this, as I want Mirror's Edge (Which I have played, and loved) too. Although I also loved the original Fable all those years ago.

    Hybrid you haven't played the original Fable?

    Does this still have the option between being good and evil? (I had 2 saves on Fable 1, an evil one with devil horns and all that, and a good one with a h.a.l.o loool). (Why the hell is the word H A L O censored????? LMFAO)

    Also, you said "pistols" in a post above, is this pistols as in "handguns" or what?

    What era (timewise, 1923 for example) is this game set in?

    Is it a follow on from the original story or an entirely new story altogether? (How it could be a direct follow on is beyond me because of what happens in the first, I won't say incase you guys go back to play it).

    Many questions I know, but I appreciate any answers, even if they are yes or no answers. Thanks.

    Pistols as in hand guns, yes. Makes for quite interesting combos tbh, couple of hits with a mace/ katana, then roll away and bring out the shotgun Lol.

    No idea what era, but I'd hazard a guess at it being in fantasy land Elements of Victorian England, but apart from that, I can't think of anything else.

    Not played the first Fable, but by how it starts I'd say it's probably not a follow on.

    Hope that was some help

    Edit: For some reason I deleted the quote bit about good and evil, but yeah, you can choose which way you want to go. Good/ Evil and also Pure/Corrupt.
