I absolutely love the original Fable, as well as Fable 2, we won't discuss the third installment but I'm truly a fan. I saw this on sale and was super stoked to get it as well as the dlc for under $10, whether you've played the game or not do yourself a favor and grab it becuase it's one of my favorites and I would wager you'll be hooked.


Anyway whenever I reload a save upon death my game crashes, any fix?

While this is a "Remastered" version of the original X-Box Fable, gameplay elements certainly aged. You will notice the story has no pace at all and things just happen too quickly in cutscenes. Combat is all about mashing the attack button.

However the game is unique and still has its charm. Lots of silly fun can be had with it.

If you are into action button mashing games and open world RPG, then I recommend to get this game when it is on sale.

I must admit, I expected more of this remake.

I was so excited when this was announced that I immediately bought the game at full price (which I almost never do). The fact is, apart from a graphics update, the game offers little more than the original did. I am generally someone who enjoys the feel of the game more than the look, and for anyone who tends towards the same perspective, the Anniversary version is simply not worth it.

However, I can say very little against the game itself; it is still one of my all time favourites. It's witty, intelligent, story-rich with plenty of side quests to sink your teeth into, and it offers a surprising amount of character development considering your controllable 'Hero' doesn't actually speak. My only niggles with the game itself are that you can only play as a male character, which I find limits my immersion somewhat, and that the camera occasionally refuses to do as you tell it.

Despite my initial disappointment with the lack of new content, I am still glad I bought this version of the game. And as I would confidently say that Fable should be played by everyone, I can hardly not reccommend it.

Great game. I see why people might not like it, but for a person who really liked Fable 3 (got into the franchise there), I like this game so much more. After playing this one for 25 hours, I tried to pick up Fable 3 again, and wow I just realized how bad that game is. If you liked any of the fable games, this one will be a good addition to your collection.

- Pretty decent remake, cut-scenes are pretty much the same. But the environments, game-play and UI feel really fluid/ well rendered.

After finishing the game, I can safely say that this is one of the better rpg's out there. It does a lot of things very well, and lets the player explore on their own without forcefeeding. Gg.

They remastered the graphics and that's it, you will notice the aged gameplay immediately and the new graphics don't really fit in at all.

I loved the old Fable artstyle. it was whimiscal yet realstic, it had the best of both worlds. This "Anniversary Edition" completely changes the faces of characters you once loved, making you turn your head every single cutscene, it's hard to decide if this 'upgrade' is worth it or not if you played the original to death.
They advertise that there is 'new gameplay', but I have yet to experience any of it, and maybe I am missing it but I thought they maybe meant new controls.
This game does not control particularily well if you're used to modern 3rd Person games, it was awesome when it was released, and still is if you ask me as a long time fan. However, if you find this game as a newcomer who plays the Witcher 3 or similar modern titles, you might not feel the same. I personally love the controls of this game and honestly I believe it's because I originally played the game on the Xbox.

I'd personally say buy the original, the graphics still look decent and the gameplay is pretty much identical.

Just how I remember the fable games! I played all of them on console, fable 2 and 3 being my favourites. I pretty much forgot about this game after playing those, but it's all coming back to me and it is DEFINITELY worth playing if you're into genres such as this, or if you've played any other fable games. Even if you've already played this through on console, play it again! I love that it's been remastered, just like all fable games, the story is a bit repetitive but it's real easy to get in to, just don't skip the cut scenes or you won't know what the hell has happened. Also, there is a bit of an annoying 'issue' in the cut scenes, 2 black lines appear sort of like making the screen a cinematic view however it just looks dodgy, like some sort of glitch, but that's only during the cut scenes so it's not a big issue.

Either way, I definitely recommend this game whether you've played it or not. The combat is pretty easy but super fun! The quests are sometimes story rich, and sometimes they're just comical (like searching for a man who's cheating on his wife, then snitching on him and watching her rip his head off.. not literally). You can get haircuts, get married, get tattoos, there's loads to do!

The greatest thing about the fable games is the good deeds or bad deeds. You change the way people view you, they could be scared of you or dislike you because you chose to follow an evil path and perform bad deeds, or they could root for you and clap every time they see you because you're known as a hero and perform good deeds!

So yeah, I recommend it, it's old, but it's gold! (I got it for £4.00 in the sale, bonus!!!)

------------------TL;DR-----------------
It's awfull don't buy(for full price)
-----------------------------------------


[This review is for ANNIVERSARY EDITION ONLY . "Fable : The lost chapters " is must play but im judging This edition without the content of Vanila]


As much as i love Fable : The lost chapters i can't recommend this version,

Everything they did was only change the graphics and engine (that makes camera nauseating)

Nothing new, No new quests,Items,Anything,

Hell! They even left "Fresco" cutscenes untouched with it's audio and graphics from Vanilla.

If you are old fan and wan't something new, don't buy this.

However, if you had never played the Original one and want to play But with better graphics , go ahead!



(Edit: Oh, also , all the bugs and exploits are still here so (Including stupid AI and stunlocks so , have fun))
