    Hey Gamespot... Your review system is a 4/10.

    To me this is actually a big step forward from the 2nd fable due to the fact that fable 2 seemed like going around doing cheesy quests and has a terrible plot/boss. Ok lets get down to business... The story is a lot bet... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Fable III

  • Review Score:8.5

    Gamespot is wrong, but for the right reasons...

    Let's start by saying that there are huge flaws in the game, such as lags, your dog getting stuck almost everywhere, combat that is way too easy mostly due to the fact that magic is overpowered and free of mana cost. No... Read Full Review

    The Best Fable I Think.

    Fable 3 was a great game and the story line was good as well. But it could have been long and more fun. The limit on magic was ok but not cool its a lot more funner when their are more spells to use. What else I don't l... Read Full Review

    This game made me laugh plenty of times, but there really wasn't anything new about it.

    Hey, haven't i played this before? No? That was every other RPG? Oh. I'll still take it. There may not be anything revolutionary about this game, but it was enjoyable and well put together. The slapstick and bathro... Read Full Review

    An improvement from the previous game and that's as good as it gets.

    Audio: 8/10 Good voice acting. Good sound effects. Good soundtrack. Visuals: 7/10 Visuals are greatly improved over the previous game but still have some annoying bugs and glitches as well as plenty of lag. Playa... Read Full Review

    Not even close to Fable II

    Wow...this game blows...how it was rated 7.5, when Fable II was 8.5 is beyond reasonable explanation. Good 1. It's predecessor was a fun game. 2. I made it to the end, doing virtually every quest in just over 12 h... Read Full Review

    This cakewalk doesn't live up to its forebear.

    Fable 3 is just way too easy. I really enjoyed Fable 2 and I had high expectations for Fable 3. Fable 2 wasn't a perfect game, but it blended open world exploration, humor, classic rpg elements, and seamless combat in ... Read Full Review

    An RPG trying very hard not to be an RPG. A few things are done well, but otherwise it's an unfinished disappointment.

    Fable III fails its predecessor in almost every way. Combat, control, and even sometimes the story itself are all lacking this time around. It is clear though that these were conscious choices made by the developer to br... Read Full Review

    Great visuals, good characters, and solid story....just dumbed down gameplay.

    The good things: Graphically, fable 3 is a good looking game, I can't find anything visually to complain about. It's nice to just wander around the envirnment. I found the story to be good too, not amazing, but done we... Read Full Review
