Fable Good or Evil?

Fable is by far one of the best games of the year...so i suggest that you start playing it if you already havent. The game provides a satisfying storyline that will undoubtedly catch your interest and keep you playing for hours. Unfortunately that may only be how long you get to play the game, a few hours, because if you play through the storyline quickly it only takes about 8 hours to beat. Although the gameplay is not extensive, the game has to have by far one of the most diverse and revolutionary break throughs in RPG's simply because you get to choose and accept the consequences of your actions throughout the entire storyline, including being able to kill your own sister to gain ultimate darkness. This game is worth a try for all of you out there.

Ok, Fable is a very great game that is a must have to anyone ranging between new gamer and expert gamer. Yeah with that said I also want to say something to almost all the reviewers here.
1. If you killed Jack of Blades and skipped the credits without getting all the keys or weapons or whatever, you just threw away at least 40 hours of game play. That is what the makers meant by 50-70 hours of game play, they never said story, they said GAMEPLAY!!!!!
2. If you don't have lost chapters than you can kiss 2-5 hours of story goodbye.
3. A newcomer to fable WILL NEVER BEAT THE STORY IN LESS THAN 8 HOURS!!!!
4. Even if you have everything in the game and you've beaten it, you still haven't unless you were evil or good since EVERYTHING you do impacts your character for better or for worse.
5. This is the last statement I have to say, The first time I played this it took me about 15 VERY FRUSTRATING hours to beat the STORY. When I found the game in the dust I decided to complete the game 100% done and get rid of it (sell it) so I did and that took me roughly around 77 hours to do. Than I sold it and bought lost chapters and 100% completed that too that took an engrossing 100 hours or more, the game will never be completed in 8 hours.
Also one last hint, if you have Fable then you cant get Huw's sword unless you train constantly and finish the game with all the side quests.

This game has a little bit for everyone! The storyline itself could've been a little better, and sometimes the fighting is a little difficult, but overall a really awesome game! It's kind of like an RPG mixed together with the Sims.
