Fable 2

This week Zero Punctuation reviews Peter Molyneux's latest action rpg adventure, Fable 2.

Watch Video

Thank you Yahtzee for giving me something to look forward to on a Wednesday :)

Haha! Knew he'd do this one given the previous review of the first Fable. The second for me thus far has been more of an updated version as opposed to a massive leap for the series.

NOTE: I don't think you should review Fallout 3 because its to obvious of a target given all the pre-release hate already.

Huray, wander what games are next on his hit-list.

Hmmm, kinda having troubles, keeps kicking me out about a minute and a half in. Still, love the freaky molenuex head.

Aww and I liked fable2

The mighty Peter contacted you? Talk about insecurity huh?

Okay, finished now. The ending was hilarious. Annoying the Ads are back though, i was bracing for 7 minutes of yahtzee awesomeness.

Next week.. Left for Dead. (I hope)

This has to be one of the harshest ZP reviews yet. Bravo, Mr. Croshaw. The disembodied God-head of Molyneux was a nice touch, too.

haha cool killed that bitch of a game lol

Nice, I finally get the review I've been waiting for and it didn't disappoint.
Now I can whine that Yahtzee hasn't done a Gears of War 2 review yet instead.

I was going to take it back today, such an excellent source for why Fable 2 is Fable 1 1/2 with no armor and a dog.

Ok...

Mr. Escapist.

You know that the forums lag out totally when this arrives? We can deal with that.

But did you read the amount of comments that said "Yay! No More Adverts!" from about three weeks ago?

And then we have some at the start and at the end for something that quite a lot of us wouldn't want to, or can't play?

I'll be very amused to see Yahtzee's take on Bongo-Kaflooie at a later date.

As for the review (and the poor intro) it does seem like Yahtzee and Molyneux have a sort of a Brokeback Mountain thing going on there.

Secret notes after the review...lots of pictures of him with an open mouth talking to Yahtzee?

Methinks someone needs to examine their feelings.

(That and I think you'll get a lot of Escapist hatemail for dissing the dog.)

Was somewhat hoping for a Fallout 3 review, but knowing my luck, Ben would have said it was the best game known to man, which would have killed me a bit more inside.

Lovely and sound thrashing on Fable 2, though. Only recently picked up Fable and not too keen on snagging the next one.

I still like the Game though

Ben, you never cease to cause my face to contort every time I see one of your reviews. I remembr stumbling onto your Darkness and Fable reviews a good while ago and used to pray that one day we would see your reviews take off.

Awesome work Mr Croshaw, I almost peed me panties!

Who cares if your forums are lagging for 10 minutes or so? Plus the advert at the start was like 2 seconds long and the one at the end you don't have to watch ATALL you know?. Somtimes i think people complain just for the hell of it..

Fable 2 took me about 20 hours to complete with a full 1000 achievement points and finishing all the side quests. I don't see how this game is all that great compared to others that are coming out this season. I really don't see this game getting any Game of the Year awards either, it's mediocre at best. If you only have 60 bucks, get Fallout 3, you will get much more for your money.

Heh. Sweet, as usual. Like most people, I don't take them as serious reviews, just 5 minutes of game-kicking hilarity with witty one-liners thrown in for good measure.

Still loading for me.

Still loading for me.

same, i am getting load page errors

Can't watch the video.. it loads, and loads and loads.. And then Opera says it's some kind of error.. argh

The whole site is screwing up, must be all the traffic for this damn ZP video. I think you guys need some new servers or something.

Yup... I've uuuhhh... I've got nothing here. Tried at home when the video was posted, and now I'm just starting one of my lab classes at school and I still can't even get to the page with the video on it.

Lame, but I can wait I guess (but it better be worth it haha ).

I always wondered how the dog stayed alive so long. I mean with the time jumps and everything, that dog lived longer than most of my wives...Maybe while I wasn't looking Theresa took the dog away to "the farm" and replaced it with another dog.

vid wont loed 404 error

Another US$60 I don't have to spend. Seems that Fable suffers from the same NPC plague as Oblivion in that all of them look, sound, and act exactly the same.

Bravo.

i can't get it to load.:(

Sometimes I think people post just to tell complainers not to.

When I try to open the video, this thing appears:

404 Error: File Not Found
