I'm a big fan of the Fable series as well as the Kinect. As a Fable fan, you cannot pick up this game and expect the expansive and rich worlds of the main entries in the series or you will be disappointed. That being said, this is a great little adventure that stays true to the style and design of Fable. Casting spells and solving small puzzles are the highlights of the gameplay which are held together with a great storyline. There are times when the defeating the same enemies and driving the horse carriage become repetitive, but, overall it's a solid gaming experience worthy of renting.
Developers of Kinect games should take note: this is the type of game we want more of! The motion controls run mostly without flaw (though I am having a little trouble with the Magic Shard spell) and it doesn't involve jumping around or running in place and swatting at balls. Even haters of this game must have had some secret glee over throwing fireballs at hordes of Hobbes.
Didnt really like this game. its not like the other fables mostly cut seans and driving the wagon around not even worth the time it takes to get it. Got it today and played it for a bit and its now already in my mailbox.

Honestly i love the Fable series and i think its great but this game was even shorter than fable 3. About 6 hours of gameplay. And to top it off you need a kinect sensor to play. Its totals BS because i didn't even spend more than 5+ minutes using it. 2 years of waiting to be greatly disapointed.
