Fable II is a worthy successor to the noble effort released on the Xbox. I could go on and on about the many varied bits there are to see and do. The role-playing possibilities are endless, and the world is amazingly well fleshed out. Unfortunately, technical issues with the visuals and the fact that non-role-playing gamers will likely be bored by the sheer size and scope of play limit the title's appeal. As such, know that this game is not for everyone, but rather for those looking for a living world within which to explore, live, and act.

For the most part, Fable 2 is an absolute beautiful game. It has colorful environments to explore, a lot of unique NPCs to interact with, high production values with its art and design, and brilliant animations for the characters. The same can be said about the audio as the voice-overs are excellent and the score of Fable 2 is pleasant on the ears. Though, once again, there are a few technical problems with the framerate dropping, music cutting in and out, and long load times.

Fable II is a game with heart, and there are so few of them released these days. It will make you think, and take you beyond bloodlust, yet you can satisfy that too if you wish. It's far too easy, the social and job aspects are a drag, and the main quest ends just when it seems to be getting started, but when you return to town and the people are abuzz of your exploits, much is forgiven. It's a more refined version of the original that still hasn't lost all its warts, but it manages to channel many separate ideas into one enjoyable whole.
