Am I the only one that feels the game/camera is bouncing around a lot? It's giving me a hard time to get into this game. I can't explain it, the view feels sluggish and continues when you stop moving or stop moving your mouse. Very odd.

I don't know if i will play or refund, but i do not see many options for controls. There are a lot for rebinding but nearly nothing for mouse speed and such.

I know many people have enjoyed the fable games, and I was really happy to finally get around to buying this. However, I don't believe i will be playing it.

Table Anniversary is a fantastic... game. It simply arouses me with its FANTASTIC graphics, its EXCITING gameplay and its TERRIFIC story-telling n' ♥♥♥♥. The music is INCREDIBLE, the women are STUNNING and Peter Molyneux is a HERO. Garlic bread tastes great as well, but you should buy this game.

I played the original Lost Chapters on the PC, saw this in the steam summer sale and thought I'd give it a go. TL;DR Can recommend! (Runs fine on Windows 10 btw)

Pros:

-Fantastic dialogue and humour, you will appreciate this even more if your British as a lot of regional accents and stereotypes are used.
-Very well done linear RPG of old. It's easy to navigate around and you always know where to go. At the same time there are some nice touches on thi sides such as buying a house, getting married etc
-Game looks beautiful. The unreal engine really brings this vibrant game to life, some of the old characters look a little weird at first but you'll get used to it.
-Good/Evil decision making split. I played this game years ago and then transistioned into The Witcher Franchise. Your choices have an impact and make the story consequences split, as well as how towns folk respond to you.
-Combat is fast paced and satisfying. Hurling your sword around smacking foes feels great, at the same time there's a nice mixture of spells to choose from too

Cons:

-Little buggy here and there. Had 1 CTD throughout the whole thing which is fine. But sometimes, particularly at the start some NPCs bugged out and wouldn't attack me.
-Shows its age. If you played Skyrim and Witcher 2 & 3 get ready for a step back. Game is still fantastic but respect the fact it came out 10 years ago.
-Sometimes you accidentally attack friendly NPCs mid combat when using the lock on mode, NPCs are quite patient and forgiving but still kinda annoying.

I heard some people moaning about keyboard controls, can't say myself, I used an Xbox controller throughout and the button set up "Traditional" was great for me.

Overall smashing game worth a pick up!

I got into the franchise with Fable 2. I always wanted to play the first Fable. I even bought an original Xbox version of it, but I hated the controls.

Enter Fable Anniversary. The Fable 2/3 control scheme works so much better than the original.

I, now, love this one as much as the other two.

Stick to "The Lost Chapters". There's nothing new to the HD update other than crappier and slower menues, a loss of the games' original charm, and it is also unoptimized as ♥♥♥♥. Witcher 3 on high settings flow much better than this game on normal settings, for some reason.

I usually won't write a review for a game but for this one, I thought it was nesccary.

Fable has always been a game that I've liked, It's a good series of a games, even if they're not the sprawling epics usually promised there usually always solid games.

Fable Anniversary is no exception.

First, Every action having consequences is a bit of an oversell. Every choice has immediete consequences, but that doesn't mean every choice changes the world. in fact very few choices actually change the world around you. You'll get bounties for committing a crime, and people may react to your characters differently, but your actions don't change much how the story goes.

An example of this is, in one quest you're given the choice of killing or sparing someone. If you kill them they're dead you never see them again in the game. If you let them live, you get a few moments of dialouge with them, than they leave Albion forever so you never see them again. The choice's don't have any real weight, except affecting your players look and how npcs react to you.

The Combat is solid enough, although it kind of punishes you for not being a Jack of all trades. I would never suggest only doing Will or only doing Skill or only doing Power, All 3 are needed for combat (Although skill less so) You will likely be fighting with a mix of Power and Will. Skill is alright for bosses but the time you'll need to charge a bow makes it almost usesless against the regular mobs of enemies you'll face.

The Social and Property side, If you're coming from Fable 2 or 3 you know how much the Social skills and Property are important. In this game not so much. You have about 1 house per town you can buy without killing the owners and the Social actions are not nesccary at all if you can get a certain level of atractiveness, Seriously I don't think I used a Social action once in the game but I had a full level of affinity with every elegible bachelor and bachelorrette.

Game time, I currently have 14 hours, that's what it took to beat this game (Both Main game and Lost Chapters) while also doing Bronze quests and most of the silver quests except 3, The last 3 were basically quests I couldn't see a Good way of doing so I skipped them. It's short for an rpg but it's fun enough to make up for it.

What does Anniversary add? Now I haven't bought any of the anniversary DLC so I don't know how good the weapons are it adds, but what I do know about are it's Steamworks compatibility and Graphic/Audio remaster.

Steamworks: Definately in it's infancy, there are not a lot of mods and a lot of them are Heavy Weapons guy at the momement. If playing as heavy weapons guy with a Heavy Weapons hammer and Shrek wasps sounds good than this is the game for you.

Graphic/Audio remaster: It's amazing, the whole thing looks like a brand new game, on my machine enemies with a bit more detail like the White Balverine or Twinblades, too a little longer to render but for the most part it was seamless.

What would I suggest you pay for this game? 15-20 dollars. While the Remaster looks like a brand new game it's really the same Fable The Lost Chapters you can pick up for 10 here on steam. However I definately think it's worth an extra 5 or 10 dollars, but don't buy it for the full 35. However if it's on sale I'd say pick it up in a second. If you're a Veteran of the Series or a new player Fable Anniversary is a solid game that will give you at least 28 hours of enjoyment (14 for Good, 14 for Bad Charachter)

This game is really fun, so glad I got this during the summer sale. Brings back memories of playing the other fable games. graphics are good and the gameplay is solid. However I do reccomend that users are to use a controller to play rather than a mouse and keyboard as it made the game easier and less complicated.

Start out as a novice at the Heroes Guild as a child after your home town was raided and your family killed. Practice from childhood to adulthood, and then finally begin to make a name for yourself in the world. Show the world your skills, get invited to an exclusive Arena competition only the greatest warriors are invited to. Settle down, get married and destroy that puss. Kill everything in your way or Save everything, its your choice. You play this however you want to, a great RPG.

I personally never had any issues like others in reviews, I did buy it almost 2 years after release, I finished the original Fable more than 10 years ago and was my first RPG, glad Lionhead ported Anniversary to PC before they closed their doors.
