In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

The long awaited Fable 2 has finally come out and fans of the original have already bought this and enjoyed it to many different extents however they see fit. Now to the people that never played the first and want to know if it would be a good buy. My personal opinion is its a good buy for a number of reasons. 1: plenty of play time. 2: story is never the same depending on how you play 3: online.

The first thing that i noticed about this game is the graphics they are absolutely amazing some real work went into the daily of the world you travel. Its almost a free world roamer you cant travel everywhere but almost they things that get in the way are trees rocks and such but it has a lot more areas to go then the first one ever did so plenty for the explorer to find. In this game just like the first you can be good or evil but a lot more things cant make you go evil to good. for instance if your sprinting through town and run into the locals they dislike you just a little casting you magic in town or drawing a weapon makes them fear you so they wont want to interact with you and will run at your very sight. Even for the people that want to play the game through being good its always tempting to go up to a door and want to smash it in knocking gets boring more so when they never answer.

The option to chose either male or female now is a good change from the first one and the different things you can do to customize your character is still there with new clothing options which you can actually dye your own color which is a nice feature so your not stuck buying an item you hate the color on. tattoos are still around but most i have noticed makes people tend to fear you more then respect you. More magic powers in this one along with really cool power moves for melee fighters. Its great that jobs are now available to get gold since questing doesn't give you much good anymore just renown and its a good way to make money without being evil some give more then others and jobs change normally in a weeks time on the game. So instead of having to get the store keeper blind drunk and push him outside with some fancy controller work to rob the man blind and then sell it back to him the next day (hee hee hee) you can work for it and get more money if you do a good job at it.
The game has depth and the story is really well designed too keeps your interest and if that not what you want to do completely there is plenty of side quests to keep you entertained. The fighting system is updated and flows much better in this then the first game which allows you to switch between melee fighting to casting a spell then ranged in a matter of seconds so deadly combos can come from doing all this.

The online feature is really cool it does have some draw backs though the biggest i have noticed is that camera control goes right out the window and makes going around some corners a little bit of a challenge and the henchmen ( the individual invited to the game of whoever invited) as the henchmen you get experience from the fights and money to take over to your world when you play solo but you cant open chests or buy new items you get to chose the items you want at the beginning before you start playing and you chose between pre set characters so you wont see your own character running around with your friend all in all its fun to play online with your friend. They have added a dog that helps you do many things it will find buried treasure, treasure chests plus it helps you fight off bad guys. just like in the first game they have silver keys throughout the world that gathering them up help you open chests that have better loot the bonus to this is if you have plenty of keys to open a box the dog finds that box but it wont take you to a box that you dont have enough keys for so it doesnt lead you astray. I highly enjoy this game. Its a good buy cant go wrong with it unless you totally hate adventure/roleplaying games
