Journeying back to Albion will always be slightly different, as your character'll reflect the way you play the game, whether that's being a selfless hero or someone who cares little for the characters that they encounter throughout the land.
You can grab a copy of the game on the 360 for £7.99 from Gameplay at the moment, which is exactly £2 cheaper than the next best offer of £9.99 coming in from Game.
It's possible to work your way through the main story relatively quickly if your only motivation is to get to the end of the game as fast as possible, however I'd advise you to spend a good amount of time travelling around the environments so that you can meet all the weird and wacky characters that are waiting for you to brighten up their lives or cast a cloud over them depending on your frame of mind.
Plodding around at your side waiting to help you find your way to the next task or alerting you to anything that might cause you harm is your loyal dog, and loyal is the key word there, because he'll stick by you no matter what, so don't be afraid of neglecting him if you're planning on carrying out some dastardly deeds.
The economy in Fable 2 is quite an interesting thing to fiddle around with, areas that are free from disturbances are able to build themselves up, which raises the price of goods and properties, whereas an area that's constantly being raided by bandits has to take whatever they can get for their items. As a result you can convert expensive areas to poor ones, or vice versa, depending on whether or not you've got things to buy or sell. Also, if you pick up a few properties you'll be able to act as a landlord with the ability to charge your tenants whatever you like.
Finally, the choices that you make in the game will have an impact on your character's appearance, if you eat too many fatty foods your character'll balloon up pretty quickly, or if you start traipsing down the path of evil you might get to the point where your character'll develop horns.
As fas as action RPG's go this is one of the best on the market, and it's definitely worth picking up for under £10.
