Fable 3 is a symbol of everything wrong with the game industry. It is visually stunning and high budget, but the gameplay is just bad. The game has a broken battle system in which melee weapons are very weak when compared to magic or guns, while in...

Understone Quest Pack (400MSP) The first and cheapest pack is also, not surprisingly, the shortest. The premise is simple: a factory owner in Bowerstone Industrial is hearing voices in his factory, and he enlists you, the King (or Queen), to...

I’m always slightly shocked when I come across something really silly in a game with otherwise serious production values - after all, the game industry is big business, with massive budgets poured into spangly titles. Are developers really going to...

An acceptable, lighthearted RPG that’s often too simple, too staid and too black and white to be much...

Fable III lands on the PC with graphical enhancements and tougher combat, but simplified gameplay and a lack of moral choices still distract from the...

Some don't know it, but Lionhead Studios started out on the PC back in 2001 one with god game Black & White before moving on to the now established Fable franchise. Fable was a hit on the Xbox, and its later released PC version -- known as Fable: The...

Despite key improvements in several areas, Fable III isn't quite the masterpiece that Lionhead keeps promising. The game's unconventional structure, while ambitious, ultimately compromises the player experience....

Fable III is a decent enough game. Games for Windows, however, is a piece of crap. Now let me stop you before you say something like, 'it really isn't that bad, is it?' because it is that bad. In fact, as good as Fable III for PC is (I liked it more...

In Fable III you can be king. You quest through a fantasy countryside gathering support to overthrow a vile ruler, take the crown, then strike a balance between fulfilling promises made to supporters and the overall safety of Albion. It's a pretty...

It’s been just over half a year since Fable III released on Xbox 360, which was also when the PC version was due but then Lionhead Studios pushed it back to work on what they feel desktop gamers want and need – has the PC revolution taken hold?...

Several months after its release on the Xbox 360 and Lionhead's action-RPG epic has finally hit PCs. We take a look at how the PC version of Fable III measures up to its console-based predecessor.[Editor's Note: The following is a primer on how the PC...

If there was a word I'd shellac to Fable III, I'd be hard pressed to choose between ‘shiny' and ‘fun'. This isn't a serious RPG-style game, and it doesn't pretend to be; we stopped thinking of Fable as an RPG after II came out. The later instalments seem...

Peter Molyneux’s innovative new RPG throws genre convention out the window -- sometimes to its detriment but more often to its benefit -- creating one of the more memorable RPGs of 2010 in the process. Love them or hate them, there’s no question that...

Fable, tuo Molyneuxin täyttämättömien lupausten kehto. Fable 3 ei juurikaan vie sarjaa eteenpäin, eikä siinä ylletä vieläkään Molyneuxin suurten lupausten ja hypetyksen tasolle.Microsoft on päättänyt julkaista Fable 3:n näin jälkeenpäin myös PC:lle....

An dieser Stelle wiederspreche ich meinem Kollegen: Fable 3 war (für mich) nicht das erhoffte RPG-Highlight 2010/2011. Mal wieder hat der gute Herr Molyneux den Mund ziemlich voll genommen. Die abwechslungsreichen Schauplätze und die recht guten...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Fidèle à la série, en apportant un peu de fraîcheur, Fable III réussit bien son transfert de la console au PC. Les limites graphiques sont supplantées par une réalisation artistique bien maîtrisée et une jouabilité accessible. Comme quoi, les...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 80

Fable III ist ein entspannter (weil nicht so schwieriger) Ausflug in die Fantasy-Welt. Durch die Möglichkeit das Spiel als guter oder böser Charakter anzugehen, ergibt sich eine enorm lange Spieldauer. Grafisch werden zwar nicht alle Möglichkeiten...

International Review By Gamers on 80

Um es vorab gesagt zu haben: Fable 3 ist es wert, gespielt zu werden, denn der Humor, den Fable 3 bereits auf der Konsole versprühte, ging nicht verloren. Mir fallen sofort 3-4 Missionen ein, die vom Konzept, Humor und Präsentation dermaßen überzeugen...
