Lionhead's very British rpg adventure is a favourite of many and a decent Christmas present idea, especially now that it's available at such a bargain basement price.
The Game of the Year edition of Fable II is now available from The Hut for just £12.93, making it over £3 less than Gamestation's also-very-reasonable price of £15.99, and even cheaper than the best price for the normal version!
In addition to the second instalment of the Fable series, this edition also includes the Knothole Island and See the Future expansion packs.
Set once again in Albion, 500 years after its predecessor, in a colonial era suggestive of highwaymen and high romance. Exploration of this land will play a big part in your experience, and story elements and quests are available to you to pursue as and when you wish to It's a beautifully realised world but sadly the tale that unfolds in this charming setting is far less inspiring and filled with clichés and twists that you will probably see coming from a mile away. It is the story that you create yourself, through your own actions and interactions, that will claw you in and flesh out your otherwise fairly bland character.
Fable 2 has a lot going for it, from its British humour to its simple but solid and enjoyable combat system and innovative features. However, I was somehow left cold, mainly thanks to the real lack of meaningful interaction and characterisation, despite the many NPCs populating Albion.
