Post your own reaction videos or rections here and any thoughts of how the New fable stacks up to its predecessor.

When I first heard Lionhead would remake Fable I was sceptical , and the closer it came to release (for PC) I was just unimpressed and dissapointed, I just thought that the Graphical leap from Fable TLC to Anniversary was negligable or at he very least it could have been more tecnically advaced than it is if they ditched the old art style... I bashed Anniversary but I have warmed up to it, I have never played Anniversary so any opinions I have of it not liveing up to my wild dreams could and probably will change.

I think that what Lionhead has done is wonderful I bought the game on steam an will play it and record my reaction on this thread.

I bought the game with the idea that even if i did not like it the main purpose was to support the Fable brand and Lionhead thanks Lionhead<3 xoxo

It's about what I expected. It's fable with a layer of unreal engine. Is it worth what they are asking for it? No. But it's still the better game out of the 3 fable games.

The addition of the hard mode saves a bunch of people time because all the main work is done with making the game harder. Very Happy

I'm noticing that a lot of the issues - particularly gameplay and cinematics - are still present in FA. It's like they literally copy-pasted things;
  • A scene which is meant to zoom in on the hero's face will still zoom in on their chest if they're too tall
  • You can't hit enemies with melee if they're knocked down
  • Melee attacks will push enemies out of the way if they're performing an emote and you aren't locked onto them
  • Taking the key from Grey's bed when you're the mayor results in 5 negative karma
  • Whenever Jack starts to hover, his movement becomes awfully jittery
  • The movies are the same files from TLC, upscaled and with terrible audio

The lack of mouse control in the menus is beyond frustrating. This post from a Lionhead dev on the decision to choose modding over mouse-enabled menus doesn't help.

Despite aging being "slowed down", it feels like my hero is aging super-fast. He looked about 70 when he went to the arena! And oh-dear-god the arena rock trolls. Knocked down by one, start getting up, knocked down by the other, ad infinium.

And the textures... What are these? 256x?

I could go on forever... Rolling Eyes It seems that we've got a few niceties - mostly modern 3D techniques - but everything else is exactly the same.

I think it really comes down to the fact that there was a skeleton crew working on these, and Microsoft/Lionhead wanted to push them out for some extra money. I doubt we'll see anything more than 1 patch. And that will be for the most screamed about issue. The devs have probably already been reassigned to a different project I'd guess.

I doubt I'd pay more than 15 for this release. And I understand people being put off by the game that did.

What really struck me as odd was the fact that none of the technical issues came up in beta from what I saw.

I put as much feedback as I could when it came to modding and the hard mode. But there looked to be a definitive plan already in place. So most of what I had to say on the subject was nigh useless.

So far, only the lack of mouse control in the menus and the lack of graphical options. Mainly FXFA. I really hate that.

Other than that? Just subjective complaints about aesthetics, such as the redone faces. They just don't look as defined as the original look, as well as the Hero looking mutant-ish. But again, aesthetics are subjective. The textures look better, for sure, but really not that much better. And the lighting is pretty damn awesome. Also, the hard mode implementation is pretty cool, though I've yet to touch it.

So far, all in all, it's alright. Not good enough to justify the price tag, but meh.

The new menu in-game is terrible, and I wish I could lower the graphics a tab bit.

#Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

It's in almost all respects worse than the original... I can't believe they ruined something that could have competed with other major titles with fable three and now this...
