Really fantastic, its nostalgic and I will probably keep playing this series for years. Certain quests are frustrating, such as having to protect vulnerable people or having to be sneaky, I am bad at both things. This game really sets the foundation for morality based MMORPGs to come.

This game... is amazing. ON CONSOLE ONLY.
Yes the pc is more often then not the best for games, but this game is the WORST possible port.
Ive only played around 40 minutes of it and all it is is a texture pack over the main game, and that would be FINE if they FIXED THE DAMN BUGS AND MADE THIS GAME WITH MEDIOCRE GRAPHICS AND GAMEPLAY RUN RESONABLY WELL.
My pc is... mid range, in short it wont be running witcher 3 on Ultra/Uber, but it can run Witcher 2 on high without ubersampling (Low with ubersampling) and stay at a resonable fps, but Fable Anniversary.. NOPE. not even on the lowest settings can it acheve over 7 fps, and i more than meet the recomended system requrements. I even went as far as overclocking and only obtained 12~ fps.

I could forgive that... hmmmm if glitches and crashing where fixed. THE GLITCHES ARE CONSTANT... but sometimes funny so ill let that go. But crashing is unforgiveable, i mean THE INTRO OF TAWLKING TO YOUR DAD PERSON CRASHED SO MANY TIMES THAT THE FIRST 20 MINUTES OF MY SUPPOSID PLAY TIME WAS THAT DAMN CUTSCENE, STARTING QUESTS REQURES ME TO SAVE , TALK TO THE QUEST GIVER, LET THE GAME CRASH, LOAD MY SAVE, AND DO IT ONCE MORE AND HOPE I ACTUALLY GET THE DAMN QUEST. EVEN RIDE TO HELL AND ITS DRYHUMPING GAMEPLAY IS BETTER THAN THIS AT LEAST ITS RELIABLE THAT I GET TO DRYHUMP....
IF you run 4 titans in 4 way SLI have fun, if not Get used to crashes and low fps, oh make sure you have a duel cpu mother board, 4GHz ,12 cores, xeon cpu, and use 64 gigs of ECC ram to take advantage of the xeon cpu.


But no, if you can get it to run its awesome... AMAZINGLY GOOD for such an old game. But with all my problems with it im afraid i have to say get it on console it will be much more enjoyable there.

TL;DR Terrible remake, play the original instead.

Where do I even start with this cash grab of a game? I'm a long-time fan of the fable series, played every title since the original pc version of The Lost Chapters (TLC) and absolutely loved most of them but after playing this game I'm not at all surprised Lionhead Studios closed. This game is actually a downgrade from TLC, with the same glitches as the original plus more, the most annoying menu system I’ve ever used and visuals which are still subpar of a modern $35US game.

Contents of disappointment:
-Glitching, bugs and terrible mechanical changes
-Clunky Interface design and control
-Laziest visual upgrades in a remake ever

Glitching, bugs and terrible mechanical changes:
Do like your eardrums, then this game isn’t for you. I found that after playing the game for a while, the audio starts to distort and crackle which only restarting the game fixed. The new checkpoint saves are completely broken. When I checkpoint saved, looted a chest, loaded the save, the chest was still open but the item was gone from my inventory, meaning I lost items that I couldn’t get back without starting over. This new system was meant to fix the hero save exploit but being lazily applied, only managed to break the game. It also has weird fps drops, though I’m using a good computer it still dropped at places no matter what settings it was on.

Clunky interface design and control:
What’s the one advantage of using menus on a PC? Being able to navigate them with the mouse is a good one. This game does not have this function and even worse, it uses keys that are not intuitive in the slightest, using the ins, home, del and end keys to navigate the menu system. I should also mention that TLC, though its menu system was also a little clunky, you could use a mouse to navigate. Also key bindings are a good thing to be able to change depending on your play style but unlike TLC where you can change any of the keys, you can only change a few of them in anniversary.

Laziest visual upgrades in a remake ever:
When you buy a '9 years later' remake of a game, you’d expect visuals that would make your jaw drop when you compare them with each other. Fable Anniversary does not do this, though the textures themselves are of higher resolutions then that of the original, the new textures look out of place and quite weird on the models. They did nothing to the animations and barely anything to the models so most of the characters in the game, they may as well be mutants with how they look. The texture quality is terrible, on max most of the textures are still the quality of the Xbox 360, which is unacceptable for a modern pc game and is not worth the $35. This point is a bit of personal opinion but the non-changeable FXAA makes the game as a whole look way too blurry as well. TLC had amazing graphics for its time and nothing in it has aged enough to be unrecognisable. TLC also supports 16:10 ratios and can be used at 4k.

Fable Anniversary’s little bit of eye candy doesn’t make up for its many downfalls, TLC cost less than 1/3 of its price and is still a much better game then this garbage. TLC still runs on modern operating systems without much hassle, so the remake for PC is just not worth it.

There's no reason to not play this game. If you see it on sale and have the money, just get it. If you like Fable in any way, get it. Seriously. The first Fable was amazing. I may have some sort of sentimental attachment; but even if those feelings weren't there I would honestly say that this was my favorite game growing up.


The fact i was able to enjoy this on PC looking better than before is amazing and I'm sad lionhead studios has come to an end. Enough about the BS though.
ALL you need to know is if you like Fable, get it. If you're thinking of getting this game, get it. Great game ive spent 16.3 hours on my first playthrough of this game and i did only about 3 sidequests. I'll probably end up putting a lot more time into it.

Fable Anniversary is a fairly underwhelming remake of the original Fable.

The original Fable is a classic hack and slash/rpg. It's a simple game with a lot of humor and a nice focus on character customization. I greatly enjoyed playing through it as a variety of characters from an Archer who only used bows to a guy who just used his fists. It had a nice story and had lots of content with it's Lost Chapters release. To coincide with Fable's 10th anniversary the developers at Lionhead went about to remake the game. While I think their hearts were in the right place the execution is way off.

The things the remake does well can be seen in the screenshots. They ported the entire game to the Unreal 3 engine. They made the environments and lighting look absolutely steller. The way they made the lighting look on the player's armor looks impressive as hell but that's to be expected from such a modern engine.

That's... about all the improvements that are worth noting. The game plays identically to the original. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing it means negative aspects of the original game like the pathfinding and the friendly AI are still terrible. They also refused to add any new content the fans begged them to add like a female protagonist option. It is just a straight up port of the game to the Unreal 3 engine and it feels almost like a fanmade remake of the game.

This would be all well and good but a huge problem with this release of the game is how they decided to replace the character models. The characters in Fable Anniversary look like goblins. It clashes heavily with the exaggerated proportions the game has. The hair looks like plastic, and as a result half of the hairstyles from the original game look like absolute garbage. The lipsync is completely out of sync. Which would've been acceptable back in 2004 but is completely unprofessional for a game in 2015.

The absolute worst part of this release was the changed user interface. They replaced the very PC style user interface with this extremely clunky unintuative gamepad interface. It's hard to find what you want in the interface and you constantly select the incorrect parts of the menu. I HATE the interface in this release of the game. I don't understand how they could've dropped the ball so hard.

I can see the reasoning behind remaking Fable. But this really needed more care and attention put to it. It feels very paint by numbers like the developers really didn't know what people liked about the original game. Apart from the very welcome addition of xinput support, there is virtually no reason to buy this release over the original. Especially since the original is also on Steam, 30$ cheaper. I don't really know who to blame for this release of the game but considering how good Halo Anniversary was, I'm more inclined to blame Lionhead.

This is a great game to just relax to, I've seen people complaining about certain spells making it easy for the harder modes, if you don't want easy mode don't use those abilities simple, those abilities only really exist for those who really can't take the hits, and who are having problems finishing the game. If you are finding it to easy still all you have to do is just unequip your best gear. The game plays great with simple dynamics, which are easy to learn and pretty simple to master. Players used to Dark Souls and watching for certain animations, will find that for the most part you can still do that if you watch the enemies carefully (enemies will sometimes swarm you, and unlike some games won't take turns on you) You can always try and take out the ranged/summoners first, while dealing with some not all of the adds which they create.

I enjoy playing this game, it's great for those who tend to get upset and angry and break stuff, this is one game where you probably won't really do that. Just your standard adventure button masher. Fun for the whole family.

This was the first game i ever really played and enjoyed...and got addicted to as a kid on the original xbox. After the somewhat disappointing sequals i decided to get the game on here. I bought it on ♥♥♥ because i saw the bad reviews on here (and i wanted controler support). It still holds up great, but in all honesty there is no difference really between this and Fable: The Lost Chapters. I never ran into any bugs or glitches, however it has crashed a few times; i'm not sure if this is due to the game being Anniversary or because this is an older game on Windows 10 (i'm not tech savy). Save your money and just get Lost Chapters, however, i still enjoyed it.

Generic story, generic world, generic characters and very simple, basic gameplay. Press the attack button to win. I was mashing x on my 360 controller the whole time and had no problem with any enemy. And then getting the solus greatsword halfway through the game which is the best weapon in the game and maxing out my slow time ability, my god. They updated the game adding a higher difficulty in response to how easy the game was. The problem is they couldn’t balance it. They added tougher enemies, for example instead of normally fighting wasps in the starting areas you are now fighting against bandits that kill you in three hits instead of eight or so. This would have been fine but the combat mechanics are not built for higher difficulty because of how basic it is. There is only one attack button and there is no way to predict enemy attacks like in dark souls for example so the enemies attack animation hits you in less than a second and takes of half your health bar and blocking and dodging is so clunky it’s not even worth it. So you have to choose either one of the easiest games of all time or really unfair difficulty for the sake of it being difficult. I mainly focused on the main story because I wasn’t into the game much to do much of the side quests. The main story isn’t very long took me 10 hours to beat. I could not get into this game at all I thought everything about it was so bland, basic and dull.
4/10 (Mediocre)

Still the best fable game. Great combat, good variety of spells, good number of side quests, well written and paced main quest and lots of moral choices. Only thing I may not like is the (new?) camera lock on system seems a bit clunky at times and can result in awkward fights. 9/10. Just don't buy the DLCs. Trust me guys, they aren't worth it.

A lot of people are salty about this release, I get it. The Lost Chapters (which will be TLC from now on, go ahead and take a moment to load up Waterfalls on youtube) kept the faithful graphics that give it more of an edge, a grittier organic feel and the price difference is almost absurd.

But don't go chasing those waterfalls just yet. On a Chinese based website hosted on American based webspace ('g' two 'a' .com) this game is actually less than TLC, because of demand a lot of private sellers are able to sell this game for less than eight dollars, TLC is selling for just under nine.

So about my experience; I grew up watching my friends play this game when I was young. When it was originally released I was 13 and I didn't own an xbox. Many sleep-overs were spent watching my friend's epic adventures through Albion, at the time the game was pretty groundbreaking.

Now 12 years later I am finally experiencing the game from the pilot's seat, damn does it feel good.

The graphics are great for its age, the worst part of the remake being the camera which didnt quite survive the tinkering process; it is a little wobbly but I got used to it after an hour. Like I said I never really played the Fable games for myself in the past so I do not need the older graphics for nostalgia reasons but it would have been nice to have the choice to toggle between old and new.

So since the price between the games are so close on that Chinese site, I can only say that either one will satisfy you, just get the one that you feel makes the most sense to you and please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.

Fable is 1 of the best franchise because of this game. I really loved this version because the game has better visual and you have all the dlc included of the original version. i also like that you have an heroic difficulty for more challenge on pc. Fable is a great rpg very funny element and unic art the story of fable 1 is totally a master piece with excellent music of choice. The only cons i would give isthey could have make more boss fight and harder boss fight it was a bit to easy the game have plenty of content to keep you busy for many hour i would rate it 8/10 excellent game you wont regret to picked up

This is essentially a graphics update for the original Fable PC release from 10 years ago. If you've never played it before, it's still a great game (despite its issues) and if you can get this version at 75% off, it's worth it.

Otherwise, it's exactly the same game from 10 years ago if you've played it already, with all the same issues (and a few new bugs). Steam workshop support is worthless, the modding tools don't actually let you modify the game (only change textures and sounds) so don't expect to see any community expansion packs. At least cloud saves and trading cards are a nice addition.

Now that Microsoft has shut down Lionhead I don't expect anything to improve regarding this title, and I can't recommend it at the asking price. Get it on sale, or go buy the original version of the game.

Who will you become? Fable Anniversary is the re-release of the original game that was created in 2004 and is bundled with all the extra content that was subsequently released a year later. The first thing anyone who has played the original Fable will notice is how ginormous the technical upgrade for this game is. It is far more than just an HD remake, It is a complete redesign on the graphical style of Fable with an absolutely impressive lighting system and a recrafting of the original textures along with a new streamlined control system modeled after the much better control scheme of Fable 2, but only those with a controller will be able to enjoy the new controls as the controls for the keyboard are still the same as the original. If you have played the original Fable and enjoyed it, don’t miss out on this wonderful experience. If you are new to Fable give it a shot, it’s a very charming, humorous and SUPER British RPG game that is absolutely delightful. Though its promise of choice is not as flushed out as it could have been that is no reason to miss out on such a unique game.

I'd recommend this game to any fan of the genre.

Looking past Molyneux's exaggerations, and embellishments, Fable offers a unique story that holds up well to this day.
Combat can get a little repetitive, but enemy variation tackles that issue very well.
The primary antagonist is still, in my opinion, one of the best villians of all time.

I played the original Fable on Xbox, I play The Lost Chapters on PC, I played Anniversary on 360, and I've played this.
I would highly recommend the game to anyone interested. What have you got to lose?

I love Fable! My brother got me this game based on what I liked as far as the limited knowledge of games I had and preference as far as taste levels go. (I love me some fantasy!) It was so easy for me to grow accustomed to and learn as a previous gamer getting back into the swing of things. It's quirky and fun, but it also has a heart warming story line. I enjoy the weapon choices, as well as what preferences you have on your magic skills and levels. You can hone your character in to be exactly what you want: evil or good. Maybe even a little chaotic if you can run away without getting caught.

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?
