Fable 2 - What The Critics Are Saying

So finally, the long anticipated wait is over and Fable II was released. About an hour in(played it at work, slept after staying awake for 24+ hours, now finally playing it at home) and I must say that Fable II is an amazing achievement in gameplay, art direction, sound/music/voice over work, and everything else you'd want in a truly great sequel.

I think one of the coolest features in Fable II is the heroes trusty Dog which can attack enemies, detect dig spots and treasure chests and more. Too awesome!

What are the critic saying you ask?

Look below for the answers:

  • Eurogamer (10/10): "Inclusive and often thought-provoking, this is a daring portrait of a game-world with all the failure cut out, and it's hard not to love a game that loves you so much in return. Fable II will charm you, thrill you, and leave you very, very happy."
  • G4TV's X-Play (5/5): "Playing Fable II is an absolute pleasure. Between the combat, the humor, and the multitude of small details, I found it decidedly difficult to put it down to get some sleep or tape the show."
  • Official Xbox Magazine (9.5/10): "Fable II really is everything Molyneux promised the first time around. It’s funny, deep, emotional, epic, and, yes, wildly charming. We’re already eager for a second playthrough, and we’re betting a lot of you will have exactly the same reaction."
  • Xbox 360 (9.4/10): "Fable 2 is what people in the industry would call a “killer app”. It’s a title that you could most definitely buy a console for. I mean, what other games out on the market at the moment give you such an interactive and consequential world. Other games claim to have done it, Fable 2 has done it. Chalk this one down as a “must buy”."
  • GameSpy (9/10): "Fable II presents you with difficult, meaningful decisions that shape the development of the world around you. You'll experience life from a young age and see your character grow up to become a powerful force in Albion. Whether or not you become a force for good or for evil is completely up to you. We thoroughly enjoyed Fable II, and heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good role-playing game."

So, in other words, go out and buy Fable II as soon as you can get to your local video game retailer.
