“…the strange and beautiful world of Albion, with all its weird idiosyncrasies and wildly varied accents, is as absorbing and lovably, peculiarly British as it ever was.”

Fable Anniversary is the exact same game as Fable: The Lost Chapters (a great game) with somewhat improved graphics. Well, almost exactly the same... Technically they changed the menu layouts. Unfortunately, not for the better. It's pretty clear that this wasn't intended to be released for the PC originally. This new version is NOT mouse friendly. Unless you use a controller you'll have to rely heavily on the keyboard for most things, which I personally find frustrating; when there are a lot of things that would be much simpler if I could use a mouse. This isn't the only issue with the Anniversary version of Fable either. The picture looks blurry and washed out on the PC. There is a fix that resolves this issue completely, but it involves deleting some seemingly pointless files, as well as some very minor editing of a couple others. It fairly simple, but shouldn't be necessary. As stated though; textures, faces, and such are improved noticeably. A couple of the faces (like the hero as a kid and Maze's) look a bit odd to me though. The only reason to get version is if you really want a the modestly improved graphics and the added outfits & weapons in the DLC. Just be prepared to deal with the mouseless menus and to fix those files I mentioned to clear the picture.

The gameplay has not aged anywhere near as well as one would hope; and the Anniversary edition does little to fix that. Beyond some clunky control issues; there's some very clear art direction issues that wind up with a world that, while technically superior, sports worse character models and design amplified by a terrible new lighting system that seems to show off all the flaws.

If you liked the original Fables : TLC - stick with that; you'll find nothing new here.

Who here is tired of this sub-par console port and the slap in the face reaction from devs in deleting posts about it or ignoring BASIC functionality that should exist in a program today? Those that have 'degrees' in programming who worked on this game should have their poor work submitted to their Universities and have their degrees revoked! I am insulted by the shoddy quality of this game, the price I paid for it, assuming it would at least retain the same interface capabilities of the original.

Posting this on the actual forums for the game got me banned.

Cool system they have going. Release broken rubbish, keep your money, and shut you up if you complain.

I'm not giving this game a thumbs down, but I'm not going to recommend it either. The game itself would be enjoyable if the PC controls were not so dang wonkey. I'm mean they are TERRIBLE. Menu navigation is impossible and the old Fable: TLC cursor control and hotkeying we all loved is gone, but this is easily fixed when you play with an Xbox 360 controller. With the controler it runs great, but there is a reason i wanted it for the PC. If I wanted to play with an xbox controller I just would have bought it for the 360.

As for all the frame rate drops and the blur people are talking about, I am not getting any of that on my gameplay. It just depends on the set up and if you are seeing that in your game, there are comments below that show you how to fix it.

If they would fix the PC controls, I would definately recommend this game. So just wait a little while before buying the game until they fix it. (PLEASE LET THEM FIX IT)

If you want Fable, go back to the original plus Lost Chapters.

I loved the original Fable, but this port is not worth the extra money. When first announced, I was excited because I thought they'd improve upon the original. Fix issues with the old one, gameplay or glitch wise, maybe add in a couple new quests, and fix the bad user interface and player menus.

Instead, it's really only a graphical difference. Worse yet, the graphics aren't really that much better. Sure, they smoothed things up and fixed up some lighting effects, but the models (especially the faces) are ugly as sin. I was hoping (more than anything else) they'd take a page from Fable 2 & 3, and give the option to buy a house without killing the occupants. Instead, it looks like that's still the plan. At least they looked at the menu options. Well, they looked but they did not fix. In fact, they made them worse. I bought this game for the PC, I WANT TO USE A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE. You cannot rebind keys. The default Keyboard/Mouse keys I cannot imagine are good for a right-handed player. For a left-handed player like myself, they're murder. The menu is horribly clunky. If I want an to equip a sword, for example. Imagine I've already navigated the maze of menu options to get there. Then, to actually equip the sword, you don't push enter. you push A. ON THE KEYBOARD. If you want to go back? B. The letter B. Not escape, that won't work.

Yes, I know controllers are available that work with my PC. I don't want them, I'm comfortable with my keyboard and mouse. As a big fan of Fable games (I own them all) this is insulting. The graphics are softer. The cutscenes still look like they're from the original (pixels EVERYWHERE). There's no customization to how I want to play a game that's all about customization. The User Interface is worse than before. There's a stupid book opening animation that has to play everytime you open the game or want to exit back to menu. This is a horrible addition to the Fable family. I'll probably play it again, I paid for it. Don't make the same mistake.

EDIT: Upon assistance from another player, he revealed that you actually need to be on your sepcific character before the option to change controls appears. While this provides immense relief, left-handed players may be distraught to discover you cannot rebind end, delete, pgdn or pgup, home or insert. Further, the numberpad keys cannot be assigned to the hotbar keys.

Still, I count this as a victory, and a lot of my stress about the game has been removed.
