"A Fable to Far"
3 stars"

Having been a huge Fable 1 & 2 fan, Fable 3 came out somewhat lackluster.

There has been considerable effort from the developers in making a game that is, in their eyes, revolutionary. There is no start menu, no lists of items/weapons/spe­lls. And while this is being promoted as a good thing, you'll find not being able to see what you have readily, quite annoying. Frequently, upon entering this revolutionary start menu, you are prompted to look at the latest DLC, almost 4 times out of ten.

‘Intuitive controls’ often falls into the category of ‘stupid’ and ‘ill timed’. Why shouldn't up on the D-pad always take you to the map, instead of only when the game thinks you might want to see the map? Quest reminders also take up a good 30% of the screen, and sometimes freeze there for as long as the game thinks you need to be reminded.

That being said, the voice acting within Fable 3 is very well done. The delightful addition of John Cleese to the cast makes for some light entertainment. The land of Albion is still varied and colourful, from the countryside to the industrial slums. The addition of the eastern land of Aurora makes for some interesting exploration.

I did enjoy Fable 3. It is still at its heart a fun RPG jaunt through a colourful world with interesting characters. Being not much of a challenge, it would be great for a lazy afternoon of gaming.

"Short and Tasteless"
2 stars"

Peter Molyneux has failed in bringing this third installment to the hearts of gamers. Fable 3 lacks the intricate features that Fable 1 and 2 had, simplifying things to the rim, putting convenience, over enjoyment.

In Fable 2, you gained levels in separate jobs, giving a feeling of achievement after strenuously slamming the buttons to reach the requirement amount of gold. In Fable 3, you level up by buying it through Guild Seals.

Ahh, Guild Seals. The essence of Fable 3. Want a stronger sword? Guild Seals. Want some more funny emotes? Guild Seals. Want a child to take care of? Guild Seals. It all stems from Guild Seals, taking a lot of enjoyment from the game, to place it all on trying to acquire the damned Guild Seals.

Do you want to become friends with a certain someone? Alright, run to a town and dig something up for them in a ‘Fetch quest’. One of the most annoying features that I ended up just neglecting. Who in their right mind wants to run around making friends for a total of about 10 Guild Seals? Not me.

The game is very controlled, unlike the 1st and 2nd of Fable's series. The Road to Rule controls the entire game, and it overused. It also annoyed me that you get there, and they throw about 80 Guild Seals into your pocket. Why? Don't try and aid me with this annoying feature, if I have to bare it, I will do it myself.

Experience orbs are totally removed from the game, that was a foolish move. Experience orbs, gold and Guild Seals balanced the game, and now it is Guild Seals, and gold. I did enjoy seeing those orbs swirl into me.

On a positive note, Fable 3 had a relatively good story. Sadly, nothing I didn't expect, all very, well, Fable-y. I won't go into spoilers, but let's just say, I knew that ending would arise, from when we encountered that certain evil the first time. Too cliche.

Overall, Fable 3 was an over-hyped release, to a sad dismay. Unenjoyable to the letter, Fable 3 hopefully is the last, or they really need to hire a new storyboard crew, and use better, and maybe unique features. Hopefully Molyneux learns from the feedback he receives from Fable 3 critics.

"Another Great game in the series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This was a great game but a bit different to the fable 2. I found the gameplay good and new things had been added such as pie making and lute playing where you earn money. But to level up you had to spend these ‘Guild Seals’ which you earned by doing quests and such. Some of the changes I didnt like such as choosing your power you had to go to the start screen and choose if from the sanctuary. Overall a great game and thouroughly enjoyed my self playn it.

Description

Five decades have passed since the events of “Fable II,” and Albion has matured into an industrial revolution, but the fate of the kingdom is at peril. In “Fable III,” you will be called upon to rally and fight alongside your people, ascend to the seat of power, and experience the true meaning of love and loss.

“…a great game that is well worth your time and money.” 8.5/10 – IGN
“…it's a joy to be whisked away to Fable III's magical world.” 7.5/10 – Gamespot

Features:

  • Be the hero and forge your own destiny. Storytelling comes to life as “Fable III” puts you and your hero in the center of an epic journey. Interacting with the world of Albion has never been easier or more rewarding. The Expressions system offers an ingenious new Dynamic Touch feature that allows your hero to reach out and embrace a loved one, or exact retribution against those who have betrayed you. Your hero, your faithful canine companion and even your weapons now also evolve to extremes mirroring your morality and personal style of combat. The emotional connections players will develop in the world of “Fable III” will lead to some of the most memorable moments ever experienced in a game.
  • The pioneering one-button combat system allows players to easily combine different styles in their arsenal – hand-to-hand melee attacks, long-range precision shooting and wickedly catastrophic spells – to advance the one-button combat mechanic to a full scale, thrilling level that offers infinite ways to engage, experiment and compete.
  • Choice and consequence. A core tenet of the “Fable” franchise, players are presented with infinite choices and consequences that impact the world around them. Good or evil, loved or loathed, career versus family, or just you and your faithful canine companion – live the life you have always dreamed. More so than ever before, your choices lead to far more profound outcomes that impact your every being. Whether it's deciding the outcome of minor squabbles or changing the direction of the entire kingdom, these key decisions will change the world forever.

Review by IGN

“…This is a massive game, and yet it remains accessible to gamers of all skill levels. That in itself is a pretty special achievement. Tack on a solid combat system, an immersive world, and decisions with real consequences, and you’ve got a game that just about anybody can enjoy.”

IGN RATINGS FOR FABLE III (X360)
8.5 Presentation
The injection of politics makes for decisions with real consequence and adds weight to an otherwise superficial story. Wonderfully accessible.
8.0 Graphics
A pleasant look and excellent art style. Some visual hiccups.
9.0 Sound
The voicework is quite fantastic. The repetitive combat sounds are not.
8.5 Gameplay
Easy to play, yet very deep. Fable III offers fun to all.
8.0 Lasting Appeal
If you like collecting things, you've got a lot to look forward to. I do wish the section where you play as king was longer.
8.5
