Is this the best Fable game? No. It's not. For what it is, it's pretty impressive though. It takes some time to get used to the targeting system, but one you do it's pretty cool. I'm not sure which version some people played, but this game does have a tutorial. The graphics are pretty good, and the story isn't bad either. This is the first game of it's kind, ever. I don't think it's fair to expect it to be perfect. To put things in perspective, I started gaming back when the 8 bit Nintendo was the coolest thing ever. To see a game like this is really exciting. In 10 years we'll probably look back at this game as the start of a new era. I'm happy to say I got the chance to play it.

The action of the game is great. The story Line is great, the acting is kind of lacking but hey I'm not complaining. I wish there were more magic spells to learn besides the ones you get in the game. There should be more levels too, it was easy to beat the game. I like the Arcade mode lets you see how fast you can complete each level and how many points you can gather each time. So it makes the replay value go up.
I feel like the horse carriage part was a little annoying and overly used. I understand our character has to have a way to get around but come on that stubborn horse is hard to get it to do what you want. And then healing it, cleaning it, and feeding/watering it gets repetitive too. I also find that if you do not sit exactly as you were last time you played you may want to recalibrate it. Which is yes, repetitive, but its always fun casting the spells about.
The story is pretty good, like I said the acting was a little bad but I'm not complaining. I really think this is a great game for kinect though probably the best I've played besides Rise Of Nightmares.
Pro's: Great story, cool use of kinect, love the arcade mode
Con's: Bad acting, Driving the horse and taking care of it gets really repetitive, Not enough magic spells to wield around. Recalibrating is a pain sometimes.
Overall the game gets a 7 for me and I would recommend this not only for Fable fans, but for people who would love to wield magic and throw it at enemies. Have fun!
