It's an RPG type game where your decisions affect how you and your world develop. So you can be an evil warmonger or a saint. What choices you make change how people interact with you. I've been playing the 2nd game and like it. The combat is fun and the story is pretty good. The 3rd game looks good.

The world your character lives in will ALSO change according to the choices you make (Not dynamically though, more so after a few major instances in the storyline in the game you'll go back to an area and it will have prospered or died off depending on if you helped or hurt that area)

So anyway, I got a good start on Fable III last night. If you liked the 2nd one you'll like this one just as much. The graphics are improved (water for example looks really awesome in this one) but the overall look and feel is the same as Fable II (with more emphasis on the kingdom entering the Industrial Age).
Game play mechanics similarly have been slightly tweaked but are still familiar. Largest difference I've seen so far is magic: Apparently the power of magic has been weakening in the hero blood line, as you now have to use gauntlets to channel specific types of spells (a fire gauntlet for fire spells, etc). The 'charge up' time has been reduced a bit, so you can charge to that 3rd level of spell power before the baddies start kickin your butt.
I'm loving the storyline so far, very interesting. Think today once I get home I'm going to focus on exploring and forget about the main quest line for a bit.

Oh, the OTHER major difference with this one: You no longer have menus to scroll through for items, armor and such. You have a sanctuary that you can instantly teleport to at any time, and in the sanctuary you have an armory to store all weapons you collect, dressing room for outfits, trophy room that will store trophies and excess gold (which start out is just a couple of bags of gold dropped on the floor, but will eventually amount to an impressive mountain of coins).
Also, the seer from the last game (Teresa I think it was) takes you to a 'Road to Rule' area after you gain some followers. This basically provides a measure of your progress. The more followers you gain, the more gates you unlock along the road. In each new section there are a number of power ups you can buy (this takes the place of the leveling system from Fable II). You also see yourself getting closer and closer to the castle in the distance.

Another note: Your weapons you gain are 'living weapons'. They change and grow with you. They start off looking unimpressive but get more and more epic as you go. They'll also adjust to your morale standing. The more innocents you kill, the more evil looking the weapon becomes etc. Not sure if your characters appearance will change like in previous games or not, haven't gotten far enough into the game yet

And on a side note, seems to be more humor injected into this game, which has been enjoyable

Anyway, needless to say I'm hooked on this for the time being and will probably end up going through and completing the game on a variety of characters.

Nah, not strategy based. I'm actually having a hard time thinking of older games that would be similar... maybe the N64 Legend of Zelda, but only very faintly as Fable III has so much more that you can do. It's an action role-playing game, so you play a specific character and you go around fighting bad guys and completing quests to further your goals. You fight from a medium distance 3rd person view.

The commercials don't relay that very well, makes it look like an age of empire where you can battle different era of fighters against one another.


So the 1980s cover art syndrom still goes on in today commercials, where what you see on the box cover/TV isn't anything remotly even close to what the games is.

No, those are the cinematics for the game. The instances you see of the one person fighting is the in game graphics. The ships and maps you see are all just part of cut-scenes in the game. Right around the 1 minute mark, thats the actual game play and a good example of what the fighting looks like.

Here is a better example:

Well the moral of the story is someone needs to take the commercial and make it for real, a 3d age of empires with a wider story base like fable.

I so want to get this game but I'm too mad over Microsoft's decision of not releasing Fable 2 for the PC. I've been told by several of my friends who are playing Fable 3 that a good bit of the game relies on you having a saved game file of Fable 2 and I refuse to buy a Xbox just for Fable as there is no other exclusive game on the Xbox that I'm interested in.

Yeah, you can still buy and rent houses and such. Money is much easier to gather in Fable III i've noticed. Once you get rank 5 of any job (which didn't take me long) you'll be raking in the cash.

I've been playing it, i got hooked on the series when fable 2 came free with my 360. not a fan of some of the changes they've made, but overall its a lot of fun.

Anyone give the co-op mode a go yet? improved much over fable 2?

I started playing it today....it's a pretty good game, kinda liked 2 better at this point but kinda too early to tell.

I did do a quest wehre I hadda make this chick divorce her husband, and then she offered me large sums of money to just kill him and marry her....never got the money, so she ended up dead and the kid went to the orphange.

so if you do that quest, when they give you the choice to kill the guy or walk away....just walk away.

I found the decisions after becoming king harder than all of the combined battles to get to be king. Now I need to replay the game to make different decisions. Gotta get them achievements.

Word of warning to anyone going through those steps... when you get to 121 days left till the attack, THAT IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY!! I didn't realize this and completed the tasks for that day thinking I had enough time... 5 million citizens dead Doh!

Going through on another character now to correct those mistakes.

Game marketers have been doing this forever. Its very rare you see actual ingame playable footage in a game trailer or commercial. Most of them are based of the cinematic cut scenes. Which is usually why i'll hit up Youtube for additional gameplay footage.
