Summary

Set 500 years after the original game, Fable 2 offers even more choices and features, while building on the core gameplay theme of Fable where every choice continually defines who you become, allowing you to truly live the life you choose. Fable II expands upon the scope and depth of the original by adding incredible new features and creating a wider, more complex kingdom of limitless choices and consequences. Players will have the option to play as a man or woman, get married, have children, and live a life of their own design -- all leading to different destinies.

Fable II, though incredibly flawed in numerous ways, is a damned good game. The combat is remarkably satisfying, the story is incredibly effective, and there are flashes of brilliance in some of the game's moral quandaries. You'll have to slog through a very frustrating few hours in order to get to the good stuff, but once you've gotten over the game's incredibly obvious flaws, you'll find one of the most emotionally evocative games ever made.

It's hard not to get sucked into Fable II. The world is so charming and your choices so profound, that it's easy to look past the game's shortcomings. The punishment for death is pointless and the story carries little weight, but the experience is still immensely rewarding. It's easy to lose hours to trivial tasks, and discovering all the secrets tucked away creates a truly memorable adventure. The new ideas presented here may not change the future of gaming, but there are some noteworthy additions that make this feel completely unique.

Best of all, while the story represents an engaging ride, it's really only one piece of Fable II. After the story is done and dusted, you make another choice about your role in the world and back in you go ready to complete unfinished quests, snag any remaining collectibles, continue leveling up and buying property, and above all, continuing to experiment. For all its flaws, Fable II is still a masterful piece of game design, and utterly compelling.
