Fable II (Xbox 360)
Advantages: innovative features and gameplay, good story, great graphics
Disadvantages: clunky menu, some bugs and glitches
One of my favourite games of all time was fable 1. so when fable 2 was announced I knew that it had big shoes to fill. I have followed the development of this game for over a year and I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed.
Gameplay: the game is very accessible with an excellent tutorial system in place (my girlfriend who is not a gamer has completed the game). The one button combat system works very well and allows you to easily switch from melee to ranged to magical attacks. the progression of your character is excellent and your actions change the appearance of your character (for example a hunched back if your corrupt, horns if your evil, blue skin if you use lots of magic) . The story is very well done and nicely leaves room for a sequel. The voice work for the game is also brilliant. One of the best features is the dog, which acts as your guide and will lead you to treasure. A glowing breadcrumb trail is used instead of a minimap which can be turned off if you so wish. I found the breadcrumb trail a very healpful feature as it is nearly impossible to get lost.
Graphics: graphically the game looks beautiful, and there are often times when you just want to put down your controller and take in the view. An exception to this however is the water effects, I don't think they are as good as they could have been. The colours used are very warm and vibrant which makes a good contrast to games such as killlzone 2 and fallout 3.
Summary: a fantastic game. if you love RPG's or adventure games then this is for you.
