STAFF REVIEW of Fable (Xbox)

Fable Box art Fable is awesome. I really didn\'t know what to expect, considering I avoided reading any previews or watching E3 videos. I wish the story was drawn out more, instead of LionHead/BBB thinking us players are complete dolts by spoon feeding us a typical story. The combat system could\'ve been much deeper. I\'m sure someone can mash X to death and get through the game. You\'ll spend tons of time fooling around in towns, getting drunk, playing pub games, getting married, etc. The townsfolk have a lot to talk about, makes the game much more immersive. It\'s absolutely great to watch your hero grow and evolve. Minor complaints aside, Fable is very enjoyable.


In a nutshell.. Fable is Morrowind, The Sims, and Kotor on crack. You can do a bit of everything. Buy property and rent it out, buy trade items and trade between shops for income, kill innocent people for some cash, take a quest or two, unleash a fiery storm on ambushing bandits, the possibilities! I wish the melee combat system went deeper, though. Still, very very very fun.


Low resolutions textures and mild pop-ups got me down. I\'ve been spoiled by PC games, so I\'m somewhat biased when I see a crappy texture in low resolution. Lighting effects, such as shadows and light bloom are very well done.


The musical score is very well done and very appropriate. Certain scenarios cues different music. Run around in the forest and enjoy a happy joyful tune until you engage in a brawl. The villagers have a lot to say. You\'ll get a sense of british comedy when listening to traders interact on an early quest. Well done.


Suggestions:
Project Ego was revolutionary. Fable is not. PLEASE give us Project Ego.
