I'm sorry for the hours I invested in this, but the game was just unplayable... period.

There was A LOT of lag just in the introductory story. It took me a good couple of minutes to move from one house to another. Honestly, moving was the most awkward thing. I took a step, paused, took another step, paused. And maybe it was just me. I tried looking online to see what was wrong, but apparently it isn't me. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM IF YOU ACTUALLY LOOK IT UP! And there doesn't seem to be a solution to it or there might be but it requires you to do some complicated work apparently, which frankly, I do not have time for. Audio also didn't seem to match up with the CG cutscenes, and they too, were awkward. In one cutscene, I'm watching my character agonize over the death of their father but I'm also hearing gagging sounds and fighting noises in the background and it just doesn't match up whatsoever. I don't know.... couldn't kill to get a voice actor for your character as well to fill in the awkwardness? Idk... my character is freaking crying and I hear not a single sob. All I hear is, "Grrr! Gawww! Swish!" Like wth? xD Sorry but I just couldn't. I didn't care much for the graphics. Honestly, graphics looked terrible before I even bought this game but I do love story rich rpg games and it looked interesting so I got it anyway, which is why I was SO disappointed. I bet the game itself is splendid, but at this point, I'd rather watch a gameplay than actually play it. If you read reviews that say playing with a mouse and keyboard is terrible, they aren't lying. And playing with a controller doesn't make the gameplay better. Just saying. I've tried both methods.

I bought this for like 15 dollars on sale and I got to say, its worth 15 dollars but NOT worth 35. I beat fable 1 three times, the game itself is definitely worth the buy, but save your money and just get Fable the Lost Chapters. You are paying an extra 25 dollars for graphics that look like a refurbished ps2. THIS DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PS3/XBOX 360 LEVEL GRAPHIC GAME. The graphics are still terrible, you still see floating feet, weird head bopping, no facial expressions, they put absolutely no effort into refurbishing these graphics.

If you want a well made refurbished game, get something like Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD or Final Fantasy 7 HD. This one was done half azzed. (Stupid mature language filter.)

Of course, this is Lions Gate we are talking about, their entire series was done half azzed. Even on console. That's why Microsoft expunged them. Don't get me wrong, 10 bucks for Fable the Lost Chapters is worth it and they make a very good story. They just dont bother fixing many of their glitches and tend to half azz it once the story is done.

IN A SHORT VERSION: Save your money and only buy this for 15 dollars max. This is not a very well refurbished game, go buy Fable the Lost Chapters instead.

PS: Don't let the play time fool you, I've beaten Fable 1, 2, and 3, and the only thing new was the graphics. Which was very sad. You can see several graphical glitches left behind that were common in old games very clearly. (Floating feet, blotchy noises, sunken eyes, etc.) Games like Final Fantasy Series made in HD, Halo Master Chief Edition, Resident Evil Remakes, and practically every other remastered game fixed most of these graphical glitches, this is the only one i've played that hasn't bothered even trying, and looks like all they did was squench the pixels together. Which you can do yourself with Nvida Control Panel or whatever software thats equiped with your graphics card. Extremely disappointing.

How this got so many good reviews, I dont even know. People truly are stupid. They dont realize they can just buy Fable the Lost Chapters and manually refurbish the graphics themselves.

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely adore this game, I wasn't lucky enough to play it when it first came out but I'm glad to have the opportunity to do it now! My only niggle is the dodgy camera angles but it's so fun and vibrant with a great story and interesting characters :)
