No question here... Fans of the original game will love the new installation. I've been playing it for two days and have fully enjoyed the new and improved graphics, items, and solid gameplay. All of the old favorite characteristics exist in the game as well - the humor (sometimes subliminal, sometimes outspoken), the side jobs, and the same sense of adventure in a larger region to explore. Unfortunately the sketchy targeting system also followed Fable 2, but if you're used to this like I am from the first one, you'll see that it feels just the same. Overall a solid and extrememly entertaining RPG/Adventure.

This game is great there is so many things that you can do. Now you can get married have kids get a job as a blacksmith you can buy houses buy stores. with this game there are endless things that you can do. The game is longer than the first it also has way better graphics. And now there are a lot more effect depending on what you do when you`re a kid. And also this time around you can have guns and it is very fast to switch between guns to swords to magic. So in one battle you can switch between guns to swords to magic so fast you won`t get attacked by the enemies while you switch. So pretty much this game is the best around right now so I suggest you buy it.

I just got my rental copy of Fable 2, and I don't think that I want to give it back, the graphics look OUTSTANDING, the gameplay is much improved, however...I don't care for the fact that the "quick button map" feature is gone. It makes it much harder for players to heal themselves during a battle than anything else. I really enjoy the fact that anyone one Xbox Live, can join in your story at anytime. This is on feature that the first one was missing, and I due hope to see either an expansion pack for it on Xbox Live soon or a third one to come out in the next three years.
