This game is $35.
It adds HD graphics (it is pretty), controller support and windowed mode. That is all, at least that I've seen.
The DLC for this game is $25. It consists solely of costumes you will never use and are inferior to the base-game armors.

I've had the game lock up on me several times, unable to progress until I loaded a previous save from about an hour ago. You cannot save in the middle of missions. Good luck!

Fable: The Lost Chapters is available for $10 and includes all of the same content minus the DLCs and the aforementioned additions. Unless your hobbies include frivolous spending and frustration regarding games not working correctly, you should save your money.

Have you played the original game? You will like this one, as it's the same with HD textures and models, some gameplay tweaks, and new features.

If you have never played this game before, this is a good opportunity to try it right now.
However, keep in mind that this is not a really deep game when we talk about roleplay. This is an excellent adventure game though, which is why I really support and recommend it.

This is exactly what i have been waiting for, I loved the first fable and the original gameplay but each sequel "dumbed" the game down more, which was not a bad thing because the control scheme got much more better but you could not control all the aspects of the game because they were trying to make it simpler. But i already played fable once and I felt that buying The lost chapters did not really warrant me buying a new copy of the game. Then Lionhead announced this game, and I was almost going to pass it up, until I looked into it further. Some people don't seem to appreciate the effort lionhead put into this, they COMPLETELY remade the whole game in a new engine. They had to port all the old textures and remake them into higher definitions which is pretty much saying they made new textures just the same style as the original game. It is not as buggy as the old one is on newer systems as well and thats a plus.

TL;DR It is a complete overhaul of a remake, they left no stone unturned. If you liked the original game and never bought the lost chapters you should buy this. If you have the lost chapters, consider if all the bells and whistles are worth the money first.

P.S. I also suggest you get a xbox controller to play this game with. It really makes this game shine and works flawlessly.

i got to relive the rage once more of dealing with Whisper in the Arena. Watching her walk into the razor traps while i get pummeled by 2 trolls was an experience I'd nearly forgotten.

Amazing remake of the first fable game, Fable The Lost Chapters. Love the graphics, the story of this fable game is just the best! And they have also added a few extra cool weapons, along with all the other ones.

There's also a Heroic mode, a harder gameplay for those who are looking for a challenge, it gets harder but it's so much fun.

And a huge plus; there's achievements in this game. So there's lots of fun to do.
Reccomend this for anyone regardless if you have already played Fable or not. This is a game that everyone must play. :)

I really wanted to like this game, I played the original and really enjoyed it and I played the sequels and with each prgoressive game the quality got worse. Sure the visuals got better each time, but each time the humorous additives lessened until they were eliminated in Fable III. This return to the original is very disappointing. They upgraded the graphics yes, but that seems to be just about it. The controls are the same but can thankfully be retuned to their better counterparts from later games.

The animations are a HUGE disappointment. The models look a bit better but definitely nothing like what we saw in Fable III, the animations for them are not even remotely changed and this makes the new models pointless if they don't have updated animations as well. They still remain stiff and awkward and very simple.

The models themselves don't even do the original characters justice. Maze looks awful with that awful goatee that just sticks out like a sore thumb. Whisper's head is all wrong for the entire prologue looking like it should on a young adult whisper as opposed to a kid a little older than the player. The child character, oh man is that a monstrosity. It doesn't even remotely match or even harken to the old child hero. The new character models for villagers are at least decent. But overall the lack of attention or faithfulness to the original character designs does not bode well.

Thankfully the music is still quite good, but it is disappointing that nothing appears to have been remastered or redone as would be normal for a HD remake.

The cutscenes appear to not be changed at all, still using transparent renders from the original version.

Overall this "HD" remake appears to be not even worth the effort Lionhead put in it, I had high hopes the new creative head would lead the company to better endeavours but clearly this is not the case. The HD remake hasn't done the game justice in my opinion and is definitely not worth 35 dollars. Maybe 15 if you stretch it. This isn't a HD re-release, it's a nostalgia trap.

4/10 While the original game is still there, there's not been near enough done to improve on the old and just leaves the remake a flashy mess.

I never had the opportunity to play the original, but heard so much praise for the series over the years that when I saw this I jumped at the chance, and I'm glad I did! It's certainly a little dated and clunky in places, but that's to be expected from a game originally from 2004.

The graphics look great, and from what I've seen of the original, are a huge improvement. It runs at a steady 60-120fps and fully supports 1080p-4K. I've been running it on a 1920x1080 screen, but downsampling from 4K using GeForce DSR, so it looks very nice.

I've been playing with a 360 controller and it works perfectly. Havn't tried M+KB much, but they seem to be well supported.

I havn't finished the game yet, but I've enjoyed every moment of it so far; a well-rounded RPG that gives you quite a lot of freedom in how you tackle quests. Coupled with the traditional British Lionhead humour and passion, good & evil choices, and addictive gameplay, it's a lot of fun!

I bought this game simply to try it out as I thoroughly enjoyed the original. Needless to say that I am dissapointed as the character simply looks weird. The key bindings are also a bad point as there are some keys that do multiple things within game. I am considerign buying the original

Hmmm i bought the lost chapter kinda played it a bit. Now this shows up and ive been enjoying it again. And like the other 2 games evil within and dead rising 3, ive had no problems no crashes well i think it crashed on the initial time i installed and ran it. But since ran perfect. Game is fun i like roaming around shooting things with my bow/crossbow and using my spell of protection. :D buy at own risk works for me though and i use a xbox controller.

As good as it was back then and polished even more better. Very actively supported by the developer at this time of writing. Those who hate just do not read at all and totally newbies out of the box.

Great classic game reborn and now on PC!
As of this review, all of the big issues people were having such as blurry visuals and lack of mouse and keyboard options are fixed. So don't let those past issues turn you off from getting this! They are releasing lots of updates and fixing user issues at a timely pace :D
I played the original on XBOX and loved it. Now that all the older game systems are put away, I can now play this great classic once again with updated visuals! Not to mention user mod support!
You really cant go wrong here!

A great port of the TLC to PC, doesn't bring anything new but it was fun to replay the game with updated graphics. Definitely worth picking up if it goes on sale.
