Fable: The Lost Chapters
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Fable® is a groundbreaking roleplaying-adventure game from Peter Molyneux, in which your every action determines your skills, appearance, and reputation. Create your life story from childhood to death. Grow from an inexperienced adolescent into the most powerful being in the world. Choose the path of righteousness or dedicate your life to evil. Muscles expand with each feat of strength. Force of will increases with each work of wit. Obesity follows gluttony, and skin tans with exposure to sunlight and bleaches bone-white by moonlight. Earn scars in battle and lines of experience with age. Each person you aid, each flower you crush, and each creature you slay will change this world forever. Fable: Who will you be?
Forge a hero based on your actions: Age and evolve a hero or villain through the actions you choose and the path you follow--be it for good, evil, or in-between. Ply the way of the sword, and see your muscles bulge. Weave the dark arts, and witness power crackle at your fingertips. Skulk in the shadows, and watch your skin bleach.
Engage in intense real-time combat: Collect battle scars as you duel with a world of cunning foes and deadly creatures. Master an array of deadly weaponry as you hone the art of blade-craft. Hunt your quarry using subterfuge and stealth. Weave death from the elements, as you harness the dark arts of the arcane.
Build your living legend: Through deeds and actions, build a name for yourself across the land. Recruit allies and followers. Gain glory or notoriety. Make friends and enemies. Interact with a living world of people, places, and event all reactive to you. Hero or butcher? Who will you be?
Explore and shape a living, evolving world: Champion or manipulate an ever-changing land with competitive and cooperative heroes, dynamic weather systems, and deformable environments. Interact with teeming cultures, creatures, and citizens from various towns and cities. Hone your character with scores of unique skills and extras: Master new abilities and add possessions as you develop.
Never play the same game twice: Once you finish your adventure, go back and try the experience again, forging your character and thereby a new tale with unexpected twists and turns, new skills, powers, influences, allies and enemies.
Expanded content and tones of new choices: Discover additional regions, storylines, and side quests – as well as new optional missions. More spells to master, new armor and weapons, and even new monsters to use them on!

You have the option of sacrificing your wife at the Temple of Shadows. Seriously, you have the freedom to kill off your spouse for a quest.That's all the information I needed to play this game, back in the day.
How you play is up to you, though with the typical good vs evil paradigms. Your karma is reflected in your appearance. Good gets you glowing and such, while evil makes you sprout horns.Additionally, your character ages as you level and by using magic. There are ways of regressing a few years, but not enough to stay young throughout.
Even if my character did turn out all white haired and old, I enjoyed the game. There is a good amount of freedom, though not nearly as much as other western RPGs. The story and quests were done well enough to keep me going. The combat, though, could feel... off. A bit slow at times, a bit awkward as well. As a port, it's well done. They added enough to it so that it doesn't feel like a cut-and-paste job.
Action rpg which you haven't seenGosen | June 14, 2014 | See all Gosen's reviews »
Something new in a genre, something fresh with fluid gameplay and fable-style (lile titles says) graphics. Everything here is at least solid and even if game difficulty and moral choices aren't satisfying enough it's still very enjoyable game. You can interact with any people and flirt with them, have love affairs, kids, just a funny social stuff in a background to enrich the story in which your here is aging. You start as a kid and end as a old guy, what game make you see that kind of thing? Is it worth buying? Well, it's not a very deep game, but there is lot of fun. For such a low price of course, but you must remember that Anniverasy Edition with improved graphics will come to PC eventually.
A great start to the amazing Fable seriesbcf623 | June 11, 2014 | See all bcf623's reviews »
This game was very original when it came out, and sparked a series of top notch games. As some have said, this game is definitely showing a bit of age in the looks department, but the gameplay definitely is not. If you are willing to put slightly aged graphics to the side, then you must experience this game. It allows large amounts of character customization, with a great story, amazing combat system, and many side quests, this game will take up a very large amount of your time, and I guarantee you will love nearly every second of it. When finished, be sure to try out Fable 2, which is also very great, and is what I started with, and also Fable 3 which was not as well received, but was great when you finally got into the action.

This was my favorite RPG back when it was released. It is still relevant and immersive to this day. In my opinion it features a great story line, captivating puzzles, and a good fighting system. It also has a unique alignment system that determines how NPCs react to you. You can do good deeds, bad ones or a mixture of both to determine it. The weapons and magic you have available to you are quite a lot. So you can be sure to play fable to match your fighting style. Overall this is a great game that any RPG fan must play, seriously.

An absolutely incredible free-roam game, a classic from the instant it was released all those years ago, but still holds its charm and quality after all this time. The morality system is fantastic, and allows you to slaughter an entire town, and make up for it by freeing a multitude of brothel workers. I love this game, and you should too!
