Fable III

Also available for: Xbox360

The fables of Fable continue to be told with this third series entry -- a revolution for the series that gives you power over your character and environment like never before. In this new adventure, players will witness tyranny, poverty and injustice plague their land. They will see a people divided, and they will be compelled to stand up for change. They will also be forced to answer a question: What would you sacrifice to secure the crown of Albion? Will you uphold the values and principles that led to your ascension, or will you be corrupted by the station you've strived to acquire? Will you be a monarch of the people, or bring the entirety of Albion to the brink of collapse?

The journey to rule the throne of Albion begins five decades after the events of the last chapter, and you play as the child of your hero from Fable II. As you rule your kingdom as king or queen, you will be called upon to make choices and sacrifices that will test your morality and can affect your entire kingdom. Themes of heroism, leadership and consequence are taken to a grand scale as you fight to unite a divided people.

Ratings for Fable III

Rating Description
Presentation A pretty interface, but one that's not especially well tailored to the PC platform. Uneven story and pacing.
Graphics Some nice animations and effects and a colorful, consistent art style.
Sound Stirring music and solid voice acting throughout.
Gameplay There's plenty to do but little that's exciting. Dull combat, repetitive quests, and little worth getting emotionally invested in.
Lasting Appeal You might be able to get a little more mileage out of this game with the co-op and wealth of collectibles, but it doesn't significantly change the core experience.
