Fable III Review – The very Last Tale
Fable was a different RPG concept from Peter Molyneux and his crew. A RPG which i think showed the way to others ! When Fable was released years ago, it was like some magic have been poured on the world of RPGs. Fable was different and could make you feel like being a child once more.
Fable is the kind of RPG where you can do what you want, and every actions you’re going to take will influence the whole story ! Be careful though as it’s not like an Open World like an Elder’s Scroll or a Gothic, it’s more an enjoyable experience like if you were reading an immersive book !
And as it’s made to be like a good book you would read near the fire to your children, Fable is not really violent… no bloodshed, no sexual content or any subjects that could hurt somebody. Don’t misunderstand me there are lot of battles in Fable III, but it’s like playing with toys 😉
Sadly no Fable 2 for me…
I just like to mention that, as a PC Player i have been screwed by microsoft… who never released the 2nd episode on pc… So i’ve finished Fable the lost Chapters which was awesome, but i am not going to buy a Xbox 360 for one game ! I’ll wait for the Xbox 360 emulator.
First i’d like to tell that i am sorry to see that Fable is going Online, like a lot of RPGs before him… As i once was an avid Mmorpg player, playing countless hours and spending countless nights on Everquest, but also Shards of Dalaya (a free everquest server), Everquest 2, or lastly Entropia Universe…
I think to go Mmorpg is a bad choice for any Rpgs. (happened to Drakensang too 🙁 )
Fable was meant to be an enjoyable experience, and the Mmorpg world is filled with greed, competition and Money ! Which are absolutely not the original values shared by Fable. I have been a Mmorpg player, i know how much time players spend on the stories… 5 minutes at most !
At first Fable III can be very confusing because you can High Five, Dance, Hug, joke around with any persons in the street ! And… nobody’s going to complain, they just let themselves be entertained ! It’s like as if the developers wanted to show the contrast with our selfish reality. But as a RPG player you could think… what’s the use of being friendly ???
I just need to kill monsters anyway for experience ! That’s where the difference lies in Fable, every actions towards a person in the street, provided you stay long enough, will bring you experience points ! These experience points will grant you the ability to open Experience chests ! And where are these chests ? on the Road of Heroes of course ! Because yes… i have forgotten one important thing ! in Fable the story is driven by the Heroes, and… you’re the one !
Interactions with the citizens in every cities will be a major part of Fable 3 ! And you can either be good or bad with them… meaning you can play the good ruler, or the nasty tyrant ! But choose accordingly as your reputation will follow from one town to another !
Play the prince that everybody loves, and the women will follow you like bees on honey lol ! Children will cheer you up and gather around you ! Men will tell you how much they would like to be like you ! 😉 Even your physical appearance will change with a divine aura of purity !
On the opposite… play the bad guy, and you will scare everyone ! people will run away or shout at you ! Kill someone innocent, and you can be sure that your eventual good reputation, that you built over the last hours of gameplay… will crumble in no time ! As you might already know it well, it’s largely easier to destroy a reputation than to build it 🙂
Also when you need money or just feel bored, you can play to some mini games ! In every cities you’ll find a spot to play the mandolin ! But you can also learn to make pies, or even work at the forge ! These games will bring you money and will test your ability on your gamepad 😉 You’ll have to click on the right button, and each new levels will be faster !
Trust me at the latest levels these mini games are somewhat hard lol ! You really need to focus, because you can earn a lot of money with these ! But each time you will fail, you’ll go back to the 1st difficulty level. It’s like you missed something and you have to go back from the beginning. But no worry the money won will already be in your pocket ! 😉
These mini games do enhances furthermore the vision of Fable 3 as a child tale !
Well… because… let’s be real one minute ! who on earth would spend thousands of gold on the nearest mandolin player, pie maker or weapons blacksmith lol ? You can only see that in Fable and nowhere else 😉
Concerning your outfits… There’s no real armor in Fable 3 ! All that is important is your appearance ! Choose a pirate outfit and people will be reluctant to speak with you, choose a chicken disguise and they’ll laugh at you as you wander the streets.
“Cot !… cot cot cot cot cot Cooottt !!” 😀
You can customize your character the way you want, outfits, tatoos, beard, piercing… and with a Highwayman outfit you can be sure all the ladies will fall for you 😉 You can also have sex with as many partners as you want lol, men, women… and remember what i have said at the beginning, this is a tale for children ! So… it’s suggested but never shown 🙂
Battles are quite tricky at the beginning… time to learn how to handle the different weapons ! Swords, Two handed hammers, pistols and rifles. On the contrary with armors, you can find more powerful versions ! And the more you use your weapons, the more they will acquire special powers ! like a hammer granting a 25% chance to knock down every opponents !
Fable 3 is possibly not the most epic adventure you would be able to play on PC, but it’s a very refreshing bowl of air ! You also have to know that there are 2 parts in this game, the first is to reclaim your throne and the second part is to… play the king 🙂 So actually it’s good to know that once you thought the game was over, Well… it’s not !
Though if i have one complain to make… the 2 parts are very interesting, the first is of course more adventurous and the second more politics oriented but… the 2nd part is only lasting 15 hours at most ! And i was sad because it vas very good to play the ruler, after all the hard work done to have achieved this goal ! But maybe i am asking too much ?…
Overtime you’ll also be able to make a big wedding, buy a house or even several for renting ! Myself i’ve bought the whole country to rent them lol… but you can also buy all the shops, taverns, hair cutters in order to make even more money ! And believe me… if you want the best ending in the game, i urge you to make money from the very beginning 😉
By the way it’s nearly impossible to die in Fable 3 😀 ! As every enjoyable experiences, one must not frustrate the players ! And there’s nothing more frustrating than to die in a game… because you generally have to restart your mission and so you lost your time ! So no worry ! during battles you can easily roll out to dodge attacks by a simple button.
Of course if you choose the challenging mode, there’s a slight possibility to be vanquished by the enemies… but you just have to equip yourself with food and healing potions, and you’ll go through everything with ease ! Also during your explorations take your time, as there are A LOT of hidden passages and treasures to discover and Riddles to resolve !
Fable 3 is full of good English Humor ! 😀 During your travels you’ll maybe fear for the life of your character, as you’ll fight your way through many dangers… But you’ll also laugh a lot ! 😀 There are many missions with funny people, funny things to do… funny events ! Simply put, this game will put a smile on your face until the end 🙂 Worth every penny !
The difficulty i played on : Challenging… and it’s better like that !
The note i am giving it on 5 :
How long is this game : 60 hours for me, count 5-10 more to complete every secrets
Would i recommend it to a friend ? : Even more to an adult than to a child 😉
Did i pay for it ? : No… thanks Emule.
