I think that this is a fantastic RPG. Although the co-op is a little shabby the rest of it is great. Other RPG's like Fallout 3 and Oblivion have drasticly raised the standard for RPG's , sadly Fable 2 falls a little short. I greatly enjoyed playing the game. I love how EVERY choice you make effects the entire game. You choose between boy and girl, good and evil, and hundreds more. The jobs in the game suck bigtime, they are all the same! It makes you feel like a fctory worker. There are very few flaws in this game, those of which fall in the co-op and the jobs. the storyline is easy to follow and the graphics are incredible. Before you judge this game about how easy it is, remember that this game is NOT meant to challenge you. In this game you are Albions greatest hero and you are out to shape the world in your image. I give fable 2 a 10 out of 10!!!
This game really let me down.Fable 1 was an awesome game I loved it.Sure, it was missing some stuff that was promised but,over all it was a good game.Having said that,I thought for sure fable 2 would improve on Fable 1 and.....I was dead wrong...
The good -
-Amazing Huge world to explore
The bad -
-Way to short of a story..I mean you can beat it in 8-10hrs
-BORRRRRINGGGGGG story.If you wanna call that a story.
-Horrible co-op.Give each player they're own camera.People have said "it's so they don't go around killing everyone in your city".
1.Just keep the safety turned on so they can't kill people(sure they can do rude expressions but it's not that big of a deal)
2.Do like in mercenaries 2.Where you have your OWN camera in co-op and had to be a certain distance away (I forget the distance but it was pretty big).
-Wheres the epic boss fights at?.A Troll,A banshee? darth maul??..really those fights bored me and were WAY to easy???...
-Lack of monsters (what like 5-6 different types?)in the game means you get to fight the same monsters over and over!!
-Horrible menus.Trying to change weapons or learn spells in co-op is a hassle and laggy and makes the other persons game freeze and wait for you to be done.
-Speaking of lag,This game lags bad for no apparent reason in co-op sometimes
-Really glitchy.Who ever the beta testers were need to be fired RIGHT now..
The last boss really?.Where was the character development at?..Hi!!!,I killed your sister and I'm trying to take over the world.You'll only see me 3 times in the game.1, at the beginning of the game and 2, at the end...
Just get 3 hero's and I'll appear and not try to develop and story.also,Don't worry about a hard last boss battle,I heard you don't even have to hit him!(which he dies in 1 hit anyways)
overall,a decent game but could of been a classic game or a really good game, if only they actually tried. I give it a 6 and a 6.5.

All my friends were all about this game and I was reluctant knowing all the short comings in fable 1. Needless to say this game fell short in the same exact ways.
A) The main quest is incredibly short and not challenging at all (I did not die once in the game.)
B) The side quests are all the same with different names, they all consist of running around and killing a troll or a pack of bandits. There are only like four different types of mobs.
C) Very buggy (the most prominent one I can think of is after perfecting the crucible it freezes every time and you have to reboot the xbox with the front button and this isn't just a me problem.)
I give the game a six because it is very fun for the first 6 or 7 hours then you beat the game. Fable 2 has virtually zero replay value because there are like 20 quests and once you have done one you have done them all. There is very little character customization aside from becoming fat/skinny/ripped or male/female and finally good/evil. There is maybe ten different outfits and none of them look very creative. On the hole this just feels like an unfinished game. If you loved the first Fable go for it this game is very close to the same but if you are looking for a challenging game with high replay value this is not the one.
