Fable: The Journey
Best kinect game
Now, ive only played fable III and this one so i dont know what the first two were like however by kinect standards id say this is the best kinect game they've made. you can only use use magic but this game is still amazing and i believe now there is a reason to get a kinect.
Great gameplay, but doesn't compare
Loved the gameplay in these newest chapter of the Fable series. The kinect gameplay is amazing (if perhaps slightly frustrating at times) and the storyline is great for the target audience. However, the game doesn't compare to the previous Fable titles. Replay value is rather low, I might play through it one or two more times before it's shelved for good. Great for younger gamers or gamers who just like getting to throw Hobbes around and lighting them on fire.
big fan of rpgs, especially the fable franchise but it seems to me that the games are getting worse. the lost chapters is still my favourite and the 3rd game was horrible compared to the last two. kinect is a cool thing i use a lot and combining it with fable seems cool but i'm not really sure if this is such a good idea.
Honestly a bit nervous about this...
I personally loved all three Fable games, they were well crafted, the storyline was great, and the graphics were beautiful. And now there's...this. After watching the trailer, even though it has what appears to be an older teenager and/or young adult as the player, the graphics seem to have become more cartoony than Fable 1, 2 or 3. I don't understand the change. We know they can create absolutely beautiful environments, and instead they make Hobbes, Hollow Men and even Balverines into more cartoon forms...I may get it but I'm honestly quite skeptical...
So what they just made Fable 1 and then gave up?
The first Fable was original and showed gamers a new dimension of gaming that was unheard of. You were going to be a legend. But in the new Fable games you have no opposition. You literally cant die you just get a scar. I understand they trying to cater to a younger audience but.. Why? they had an amazing first game so they are they now making Kinect games that just seem goofy and cartoony? I am not impressed with the trailers and I think that this is Fable's final stage of it's downfall.
I remember seeing the videos of when Lion Head announced the game, and it looked awesome! I'm excited for this game to come out. Fable is by far my favourite series on the Xbox. Kinect games are fun, and as they become better and better at making games for kinect that are more responsive it will only get better. Also, this looks like it will be an awesome bridge game for Lion Head to make Fable 4 as amazing as Fable 2 was. Nonetheless, I am very excited for this game and I am definitely pre-ordering it.
