Reviews for Fable III
A severe disappointmentVictoriaObscura | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all VictoriaObscura's reviews »
Fable II was a charming masterpiece of a game, taking everything from the first and improving on it tenfold, but this game seems to take everything good about the second game, attempt to improve it tenfold, and then utterly fail in it's execution.
The combat is just as fun as in the second game and the story is decent, if characteristically short for the Fable series, but it's in the moral choices and ambition that the game falls flat.
The game attempts to build up to the player becoming the Queen as if it's some sort of epic achievement and a major step forward, but all it really does is give you a couple of extra moral choices and then a terrible ending sequence so bad that it actually managed to make Fable II's ending look engrossing.
Fable III is not a bad game, just a very repetitive one in need of a major scaling back and a focus on what made Fable II such a great game, the charm and personality of the environments, which this game most certainly does not have.
All of the environments lack the sprawling open endedness of Fable II's with the exception of the main city which is an improvement. The characters all look lifeless and overall the game just isn't as fun as Fable II.
Recommended for fans of Fable II but set your expectations low.

Fable 2 is one of my favorite RPGs ever made. I was excited for Fable 3 and got it straight away. It wasn't as good as I'd hoped for but it was a fun game. My favorite part was the last half of the game where you are king and have to do different deeds, if the whole game was that it would have been fantastic. The game does suffer from repetitive gameplay, very stupid un-funny moments and a lack of what made the previous two games so great. But it's still a fun game and will keep you hooked for hours.

Despite negative reactions from a majority of the gaming community Fable really is a great game! The world is beautiful and the array of celebrity voice acting is astonishing, if you want a laid back game that just generally puts a smile on your face then this is for you!

The depth of moral choice in this game is not to be understated! Many people complain that it's 'too hard' because they made all 'good' choices without making provisions to ensure the best outcome. It actually requires a fair amount of forward thinking and skill, and possibly a few playthroughs! One thing that the trailer doesn't show is that you can be male OR female, which actually does change some aspects of the gameplay. You become emotionally attached to one particular character, and they play this very effectively in your decision making! Great graphics, great everything.
