This game ultimately proves that the kinect is a complete and utter failure. Other games such as, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, Dragon Ball Z for Kinect and the 2 aggrovatingly terrible Harry Potter Games have also proven that the kinect is broken and requires more develoment but to stoop this low and steal one of my childhood favorite game series. This games story is fantastic I had no problems with the story but it was the kinect that fought you through the entire game. You'll die more times by the kinect's terrible programming then the enemies themselves. How do you do that kinect. This game doesn't diserve the hate it's the kinect that does. Stop making these games xbox.

I had high hopes for this game. I was excited to be able to have full body play using the kinect. But I didn't even get that much out of this game. You spend the entire game sitting in a chair, 90% of the time, steering your horse.
The controls stink. There is no real way to aim the few abilities that you do have. It's a lot of missing your target as you fire off magic, and the occassional lucky hit unless your target is dead center on the screen. There are no real side quests, you can't explore and roam around. You follow a set path, and if you missed something, you can't even turn around and go back.
Most disappointing is there is no sword play in the game. That is my favorite part of fantasy RPG games. It's all magic abilities, that as I stated miss the mark more often then they hit it. I definitely won't be buying this game for keeps anywhere. I sure hope if there's another Fable, they go back to the roots from 1 or 2 and upgrade from there when the game was fun.
