“…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.”

There is no mouse support, on a PC game, why is there no mouse support, it's a PC game, WHY DOES A PC GAME NOT HAVE MOUSE SUPPORT.

I had played the original Fable mutiple times and it was pretty enjoyable. So when I heard about the anniversary edition I was very excited to see what they improved upon.

Unfortunately, what they mean by "Anniversary Edition" is "Retexture Pack."

Yes, it does introduce the Heroic difficulty, has some new DLC, and now allows for modding. That said, the new DLC is just costume packs and the modding is a joke.

They had wasted a wonderful opportunity to improve on what is widely considered a classic RPG. For instance the slogan for this game "FOR EVERY CHOICE, A CONSEQUENCE" is a joke! Nothing you do has any major impact on the game. Whether you're good or evil (there's no in-between here) you end up in the same position with, at best, minor fluctuations. The animation is still a clunky mess and so is the dialogue. I liked this game for what it was, but what it is now is an old game that hasn't aged well. With that and the failure to improve on anything of greater value, I would not recommend this game to anyone who played the original. Your memories of this game are better than the game itself.

Well, I've been thinking about buying this game since quite some time now and I have to say that I don't regret it even one bit. I always loved Fable, it's probably the game I've played through the most (like 8 times now), it's one of my favorite games of all time and it was a part of my childhood. I played the original version on my old Xbox and I played The Lost Chapters on PC. So I think you realize by now how hyped I was for a remake. But despite all of that I always hesitated buying Anniversary, because of all the negative reviews about how buggy it is and such. Well, after my playthrough I can freely say that I didn't encounter a single bug and I didn't have any issues at all. That's why I could have an awesome experience with Fable yet again and I could re-live my childhood to a certain degree. My point is that you should buy this game, because it's hell of a lot of fun, it runs smoothly (even on not too good computers like mine) and because it looks amazing compared to the old game. If you're a Fable fan don't hesitate to pick it up and even if you're not a fan you should consider buying it, but you might want to wait for a sale because 32 euros kind of are a bit too much, eh?

I don't understand it when people say that this game is full of bugs and glitches. It works perfectly fine on my computer, and my PC isn't even very powerful. I strongly recommend this game to everyone that loves a great action adventure RPG.

Chicken chaser is back!

Do not buy the game. Just don't. Not for yourself, not for others.

After much time and effort, I've only managed to be able to play this game for about 3 sessions so far. Every other time I try to launch or load the game I'll get hit with an infinite load screen, a freeze glitch, or there will be no sound and I'll have to close and restart it all from the beginning.. Obviously this isn't happening to everyone but it is to me, and probably to a few others too. Personally I just can't stand to deal with it anymore.

I was really excited to finally get this game after finding it on steam and on sale for so cheap. I'd been wanting to replay Fable lately too, so I thought this was a golden opportunity to replay a great game with a few new things included. Even as cheap as it was though, it really wasn't worth it, and this is coming from a Fable fanboy. And though I call myself a fanboy I don't think I'm biased or unfair in my gripes with this "updated" version, it really does just feel like the changes made to this version are just worse than the way things were in the original. The unintuitive menu system that makes makes you constantly switch between WASD and arrow keys for no reason, the new opening menu which lags and doesn't load the proper save that you're trying to load (no matter which save I selected to try and load it always tries to load the same one), and they removed the option to customize your keys for some reason. And there's the way the HUD fades out, and you can't disable that feature either. That part is only moderately annoying, but it still gets to me at times. Also, am I the only one who thinks the characters were made so incredibly ugly in the visual updates? I mean really, they're hideous. How is that an upgrade?...And then therey's the skippy framerate, even though I have over the recommended specs on all accounts and I've turned all of the settings to the lowest possible configuration. I don't know if my pc is to blame or if the game is, but something is just clearly messed up in this whole situation. The one good thing I have to say is that for the keyboard and mouse route, combat still holds up, but between the menus being abysmally annoying to go through, the game just isn't worth it. Even when it's on sale for super cheap.

For the sake of being fair, I'll also mention the good things. The visuals were really nice. Character design aside, the environments and buildings were pretty sweet to look at, even with the messed up framerate. The DLC was really cool too. I'd always felt the game lacked a wider variety of armor and weapons. A lot of the dlc stuff feels fillerish and pointless, but quite a bit of it is cool too. If your game works properly then it's worth having. The most exciting thing to me though was the new difficulty level. It added a new level of excitement to the game that's been lacking for me after so many playthroughs. I died 3 times on my way to Oakvale! I would never come close to dying in the original mode. So yeah, it's neat to be kept on my toes again. Shame the game turned out to be a bust.

With all of that stated for the record, Based on my experience, I can't recommend this game to anyone. Not even mega-level Fable fanboys and not even if the game is ever on sale for $2. If you do DL the game, I hope you have better luck than I did.
