“…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.”

Sadly I hate to say I would not suggest buying this for PC gaming lovers, the PC port is horrible with functions that force you to use the Insert/Home keys and Delete/End keys for scrolling through the menu options, the "HD" is not good enough to pass for this generation graphics, so that is not a reason to buy over the crappy PC port. All and all it was a huge bummer for me as I am a huge Fable 1 fan (Not the "1") and I was looking forward to some good comeing from that ♥♥♥♥ company. Why can't couldnt a company who did everything right the first time replicate it in 2 or 3? I have no idea. But failing at making a already good pc port version into an HD remake kind of gave me the answer to that. They are just simply a really really bad company. So this is a huge DO NOT BUY from me.

I'm very disapointed... Let me inform you of the pros & cons.

Pros: "Most" textures & models look nicer, a few new items.

Cons: Why was the mouse & more importantly middle mouse button not only stupidly chosen to be "block", but intentionally locked from us changing it back from this infuriating decision!

The hero looks like an ugly thug, not anything like "a hero" nor even the hero we knew & loved being.

No new quests, zero improvments noticable to justify what I've payed for it, not to mention the let down from being hyped about a childhood game.

Way too many bugs, Can't even start main menu without crashing. Menu system and controls are terrible. What a mess, only good thing was the graphics.

The Bottom Line is simple , For me the Hero looks terrible , the Realistic graphical style is not Fable in my opinion , If my character does not look cool what is the point of playing the game. Also this is not some thing that can be easily changed its a huge part of the game and will probably never be patched or changed , I am disappointing and I want my money back!

Some of the best aspects of Fable are gone and replaced with something worse , Lionhead you kinda dropped the ball

If Lionhead made a DLC for The Lost Chapters i think more people would buy it rather than Anniversary just based on the fact that their are more people who own Fable TLC than Anniversary and Anniversary has been heavily criticized even before the PC port so the numbers are not likely to change places. DLC and other downloads for the original game just makes logical sense for more reasons than this.

Deh, it's pretty good. Couple of problems, like not being able to wear the dark and light will users outifts because they cause the game to sutter, Some folks are complaining about the lack of support for mouse in the menus, but i really don't see that as a problem, but you can't please everyone i guess. Overall, the game plays better than i remember, i would have liked maybe some extra missions, but every remake i've bought this year including windwaker hd really didn't have anything new. I say it's worth it if you're new or a fan of the series.

If you want Fable, go back to the original plus Lost Chapters.

I loved the original Fable, but this port is not worth the extra money. When first announced, I was excited because I thought they'd improve upon the original. Fix issues with the old one, gameplay or glitch wise, maybe add in a couple new quests, and fix the bad user interface and player menus.

Instead, it's really only a graphical difference. Worse yet, the graphics aren't really that much better. Sure, they smoothed things up and fixed up some lighting effects, but the models (especially the faces) are ugly as sin. I was hoping (more than anything else) they'd take a page from Fable 2 & 3, and give the option to buy a house without killing the occupants. Instead, it looks like that's still the plan. At least they looked at the menu options. Well, they looked but they did not fix. In fact, they made them worse. I bought this game for the PC, I WANT TO USE A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE. You cannot rebind keys. The default Keyboard/Mouse keys I cannot imagine are good for a right-handed player. For a left-handed player like myself, they're murder. The menu is horribly clunky. If I want an to equip a sword, for example. Imagine I've already navigated the maze of menu options to get there. Then, to actually equip the sword, you don't push enter. you push A. ON THE KEYBOARD. If you want to go back? B. The letter B. Not escape, that won't work.

Yes, I know controllers are available that work with my PC. I don't want them, I'm comfortable with my keyboard and mouse. As a big fan of Fable games (I own them all) this is insulting. The graphics are softer. The cutscenes still look like they're from the original (pixels EVERYWHERE). There's no customization to how I want to play a game that's all about customization. The User Interface is worse than before. There's a stupid book opening animation that has to play everytime you open the game or want to exit back to menu. This is a horrible addition to the Fable family. I'll probably play it again, I paid for it. Don't make the same mistake.

EDIT: Upon assistance from another player, he revealed that you actually need to be on your sepcific character before the option to change controls appears. While this provides immense relief, left-handed players may be distraught to discover you cannot rebind end, delete, pgdn or pgup, home or insert. Further, the numberpad keys cannot be assigned to the hotbar keys.

Still, I count this as a victory, and a lot of my stress about the game has been removed.
