Developer: Lionhead Studios
Release Date: Q4 2008
The sequel to the popular 2004 role-playing game, Fable 2 hopes to correct the errors made by the first release in the series--mainly over promising and under delivering.
While the first title is hailed as one of the better RPG's aimed at a Western market, Fable 2 has been cast as the only existing Microsoft franchise yet to prove its worth. Although the art style is stylish, many feel the game has yet to showcase a next-gen push in the graphics department.
With the inclusion of drop-in, drop-out co-op (online has yet to be confirmed), the game hopes to appeal to a wider audience eager to step into an adventurous environment where your actions truly change the world around you.
Fable, the franchise, may have its share of detractors but all the discussion surrounding it comes from a population of gamers who truly anticipate the title to be the grand swan song Lionhead promised originally.
