Good

Not the same

I hate to say it but it just is not the same.Before i start if u have not played Fable 1 u will love the game.BUT if u r like me and played Fable 1 u will be dissaponted.
Ok im going say all the things that are wrong. There are only like 8 spells u can cast:(
Very limited upgrades,They toke out the VERY VERY Helpful GPS to tell u where enemy's,traders,and stores where.
You can not find stores or traders its like finding a needle in a haysack.
Also the clothes SUCK! there is no armor at all just beat up ripped shirts!
They put the gps in the main menu but unless u got a telescope on hand it is useless.
U cant just run around and kill bandits any more they r all in the missions,and There is no where u can go for like a safehouse cause the guild is GONE!
Now all the PERKS!
U get a DOG!he is very helpful to find dig spots and chests,and he kills enemies if they fall.
U can get GUNS,Very fun to use, great feel to them.
Great Graphics,great sounds,great reactions from the villagers to what ever u do.
annnnnnnd thats it.
It still is fun but me and the people that played Fable 1 know how much better it could be.

If you are a fan of the first Fable then I would say rent this game! At first when I started a new campaign the games controls seem to differ than Fable. They felt weird and out of place, it took some getting use too but as I played an hour into it or so the controls seem to fit together and flow smoothly with all the new added features. I will admit that I did have problems with laggyness during jobs and it felt that if when I pressed a button it didnt instantly work. Your dog companion is a great new added feature to the game. He is always by your side and you will never feel lonely. The dog is well...your best friend. I am about 3 hours into the game. Maybe 1 hour in quest time but as of right now I am loving it. It is very easy to get caught up in doing other things and forget all about you quests. I would have to rate it a 9/10. Its not perfect and does have its flaws but its nothing that will make you stop playing and enjoying it. Its Xbox 360s Zelda if you ask me.
