The DLC that came out for this game is not worth your time or money as it's just extra weapons and armor you then have to purchase in game, but the game itself is excellent. It was everything I remembered Fable being when I played it on XBOX. I never played The Lost Chapters, but I think this game includes it because there was more content in this game than I remember from the original Fable. If you go in expecting a fun RPG and don't read all the hype there was around this game when it originally came out, you will leave very satisfied. Even though this game never reached anywhere near what it was supposed to be, it is still a masterpiece and far better than so many other RPG's on the market. The choice system is virtually useless as it doesn't affect the game other than changing your character's physical appearance and the things the villagers will say to you. There is a lot of content in this game and a really nice world to explore. The combat is very fun and there's not a dull moment in the game, even when you play as a child at the beginning doing menial tasks. The story is excellent. The game, though open world, feels very linear as you are always walking on a path and never given the freedom to explore a large area. You can just go wherever you want whenever you want as long as you are strong enough to survive the enemies. I do think this game is overpriced for $35, so I would wait for a big sale. It regularly goes on sale for 85% off. My reason for saying this is because Fable The Lost Chapters is only like $10 and Fable Anniversary is more or less just a graphical overhaul, which doesn't justify triple price.
Whether you are a longtime fan of the franchise or an unsuspecting newcomer to the tale, Fable: Anniversary is a game that is welcoming to all. With the overhaul of visuals, audio, and the implementation of Fable 2/3 combat, it is truly an amazing spectacle to behold. This was one of the first console RPGs where choices really mattered. Not only did they have an impact on the game and the story, but also visually on your character and how others perceived you. There was a large variety of customization in terms of gear, haircuts/beards/mustaches, and even hero titles and how NPCs would refer to you. Fable also stands above the rest because of the iconic soundtrack and the incredibly addictive Dark British Humor experienced throughout the game. This game is truly a delight and I recommend anybody to pick it up, especially if you never played the original or never experienced Lost Chapters. You will be satisfied by this purchase.
When you played this game (back in the day) on the original Xbox, you were viewed as the coolest kid in the class. Why, might you ask? Well because this game had set the standards for a lot of RPG's these days. Now, I know that morrowind set the ALL time standards for open world, but this game, THIS game set the bar of graphics AND gameplay, a game that was so enjoyable to play, and very pleasing to the eye! The game had awesome action, sidequests, an arena, a main campaign, and it featured your own character growing up! most games you'll never see your character age, but in this one, you do! It was a fantastic game back then, and this remastered edition is just as good!
This is a classic RPG game that has been remastered with new HD graphics, menu schemes, and the ability to use a PC controller. The plot, voice acting, and game mechanics are the same. If you loved the first one and love the convenience of a gaming controller, you should definitely give this a try. It will give you nostalgia for sure. Even if you haven't played this, this is a great RPG by itself. The price does seem a little high for just updated graphics and control schemes if you own the original. For me, it seemed fair. This game has it's fair share of bugs but the developers are hard at work with releasing patches and updates. It runs fine for me now after the first patch. I really love this RPG game and if you like RPG's, I recommend you to try this one!
I remember playing this game when it first came out way back when. Fable Anniversary is a great digitally remastered game from the original. The graphics are way better, the sounds are amazing and its just an all around fun game. Plus you get to go back to Albion and decide your fate as a hero to society or a evil being. The reason why i give this game a rating of 80 is because while the game is still so awesome there are some issues i had while playing. One of the issues i had was the game freezing periodically at random parts of the game ( does this on both Xbox and PC). Another i had was the fact that the Combat system was kind of clunky and you missed lots of potential hits on someone. The final was the non-smooth movement, it didn't really kind of flow, it was more of walk, stop, turn then begin walking rather than walk while turning. Above all this game is A great RPG with a great story. This game will give you hours of endless fun whether you are a young one playing the game for the first time or are a Fable Veteran and want to replay for Nostalgia purposes.
