“…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.”

As soon as you gain control of your character, you can feel this is an incredibly lazy port. The movement and camera are still very awkward, stubborn and juttery. Even though I'm using an analog stick, it feels like I'm playing a game entirely designed to work with a d-pad; I don't quite seem to have control, as though I'm telling my character where to go, and he's moving only in the vague direction. The character constantly gets caught on walls, boxes, anything he can find really.

All of this was in the original game, and it was forgiveable a decade ago, but now, they should really have done better. I know it sounds like I'm nitpicking, but poor movement and camera in an action RPG really mars an otherwise great game.

The graphics have been improved. Though they aren't fantastic, they are enough and make the game far more playable than the original, which has certainly not aged well in terms of looks.

Other than the graphics, all that seems to have changed is the UI. Parts are far better, other parts are the same if not worse. The d-pad menu in the bottom left is still atrocious to navigate, but the other menus are good now.

I have been recommending this game since the day it was released, and I will continue to, but I cannot recommend this port. The bare minimum effort has been put in, and it's clear within minutes that this is nothing but a cheap cash grab. I want more people to enjoy this amazing game, I really do. I just can't lie and say this is worth buying.

Fable deserves better than this.

Fable, an old, great RPG!

Fable Anniversary is a remake of the original Fable - The Lost Chapters. But to be honest, it hasn't changed much since 2004. I bought this game because I had lot of fun with it in the past. The only things that had changed are some textures and the sunlight effects. That's all.

++ nice storyline
++ individual character
++ decisions affect the story
+ "Legendary" difficulty!
+ you can choose between good & evil
+ graphic is o.k.
+ nice soundtrack (no big selection, but o.k.)
+ many sidequests
+ nice design (of the area and NPC's)
+ about 15 hours playtime (acceptable for a RPG)
+ achievements and trading cards

now the bad things...

- I liked the textures more in the "normal" version
- ugly old, scar plated character in the end
- 32€?! 15, o.k. 32? - gtfo.
- some bugs, but no big deal
- DLC are not necessary and cost way too much.
- you CAN'T change the keyboard layout!
- the inventory looks awful

I tell you, if you liked "Fable - The Lost Chapters" you will also like the remake version. But don't buy it for the full price, it's too much. Wait for a sale and than grab it! :-)
For all the other players outside there, I think it will be interesting for you, if you like RPG's and games were YOU make the story (in some little ways).

because of those negative aspects, I have to give "Fable Anniversary": 7/10

thank you for reading my review and have a good day :-)

Somehow it's worse than the original in every way. They just ported everything into UE3 which not only ♥♥♥♥ed all the textures up and made them look worse than Fable 2 on xbox, they left the animations and character models exactly as they were which don't blend together as well as they did on the old version. Not worth the money when the original is 3x cheaper and plays 3x better. I absolutely love the Fable series (and I'd pay full price for a PC port of Fable II), but there is literally no reason to buy Fable Anniversary when Fable: The Lost Chapters is still on the steam store.

Even worse off, I can't request a refund for this ♥♥♥♥ because I was two months outside the scheduled window! What a waste of money.

Real talk:
It's a good game, but there is literally no update to this and the original. The physics, gameplay, movement of characters, story line (given, but I was hoping for an extra treat), etc. is all the same from the old fable. The graphics are muddier than before, and I feel you should get the entire game without needing DLCs. Honestly, save your $60 for the full game and buy the old one which has great graphics for its ages, for $10.

I was very excited about this game considering that Fable TLC is easily in my top 5 favorite games of all time. My expectations were simple: that this would be an upgrade to the beloved game I grew up playing. My mind was open when I first played Anniversary, knowing very well that the nastalgia from the first game would be influencing my feelings. Nevertheless, I would have expected my bias towards the series to lead towards a raving review. Instead I'm overwhelmingly compelled to advise other potential players to not waste their money on this lazy production.

"Laziness" on behalf of the developers is truly the best summary I can offer. The graphics have been updated but that's where the careful effort ends. This game is loaded with bugs and glitches. I had to stop playing about maybe 1/8 of the way through because the pause menu got stuck. Let me repeat that: the pause menu got stuck. This is the only bug I'll take the time to mention because I think it's the most telling of how severely poor of a job the developers did porting the game. At some point, for no identifyable reason, I stopped being able to access any of my clothing, inventory, or skills through the pause menu because it would continuously scroll through every tab and option. It was as if whatever key was supposed to scroll down was stuck (it obviously wasn't). To be unable to level up, use items or view quests in a game such as this simply means that it is unplayable.

Take a moment to look up other glitches people have encountered. Even if they are not quite as critical as this they are indicative of the experience you'll have with this game. It falls short of so many basic, fundamental expectations; it is a product without soul or passion.

My final, most disheartening complaint is probably trivial in comparison, but I have to mention it: you can't get drunk anymore. I don't think it's much to ask for -- it was a quirky feature that made frequenting the taverns fun. I can't even begin to tell you how many quests I would go on in TLC with my character knocking beers back one after another. When questioned about this absent feature in public forums the developers claimed that it was "a low priority". They've sacrificied gameplay, gutted stability and tossed away functionaility for better graphics in a new game engine.

I remember playing the first game and having fantasies of how it could have been better. The game was great, but there was something about it that you just instinctively knew there could be so much more to it. I kind of always hoped they'd somehow justify building it out some more, drilling down on the gameplay elements and turning it into a more immersive experience. The Anniversary release managed to step down that road then subsequently run in the opposite direction. It is a graphically-polished abomination.
