Fable 3 is one of the best games I have ever played, but if you were to compare it to Lionhead's previous game, Fable 2, then it is lacking. When I play a Fable game, I expect the freedom of choice. In Fable 3, a lot of freedom that was in Fable 2 is now gone. For example, you can no longer stand in Bowerstone and play the Lute freely, without applying for Lute Hero, or walk up to a villager, pull up the Expression Wheel, and have a choice of any expression you want. In Fable 3, You must press A to Interact with a person, and you only have 4 expressions to choose from. If you are one for long games, do not buy Fable 3. The main quest is very short and limited, especially when you get to the Ruler part of the main quest. If you enjoyed the variations of clothes in the previous Fable games, there are no longer as many clothes as there were, and most of the time, you will probably go through the whole game only changing your clothes a couple of times. This is also the same with weapons, but all of this is my opinion. I suggest that everyone at least rent this game. It is one of the best.
Fable 2 was better. That is all i'm going to say. They made this game way more challenging... And the way things were done on the game were unfamiliar from the first. I didn't like the dramatic change. Could have done better. This game is worth the rent though. Great storyline. Great graphics.
