Good game overall...nice to finally play the first in the series (never played it on the regular Xbox). The game seems to be pretty unstable - had it hang on me 5 or 6 times randomly. Good variety of quests....visually appealing art style. Decent story. Voice acting is OK. Weapons and armor seem to be pretty limited. UI can be somewhat confusing at times. Menu/inventory can be confusing and difficult to navigate (for instance, does not tell you what items you are currently wearing when selling items at a shop). Selling items is kind of annoying because it's rare that you will find a place that will actually buy what you are trying to get rid of.
Overall, definitely worth a playthrough if you like this type of game, and even moreso if you enjoyed Fable 2 and 3.
If you've ever played the original Fable, then you are really not missing out on much. The graphics are a little better, if you're okay with clunky frame-rates. A few more features have been added, along with an expansion that includes a new map that was not in the original Fable.
Honestly, I would personally consider Fable: Anniversary more of a "patch" or "update" to the the original Fable. It's just has a few (literally, a very limited number) of new features. That is it...
I would recommend this game to those who have not had the chance to play the original Fable because the story line is good, although do not expect too much else from it if you are a gamer from this era. I would also recommend it to those who wish to revisit the "good old days" of Fable. Just be warned, it's almost exactly as you remembered it.
to call this remastered and to charge 50 dollars for this is criminal the framerate is so bad its literly like playing a slideshow they didn't do enough to this to warrant 40 for a game you can buy from the bargain bin for 99 cents remember the old good memories from the original and leave this alone or youll ruin those fond memories lionshead after fable3 has been one mess and rip off after another I loved 1 and 2 and liked 3 but thiey have lost any credibility as a aaa top tier developer time for them to resign from rpgs and make bad Kinect titles
