So I have spent (in total) a good couple of days over the last couple of months pottering about in the world of Fable 3. Never played any of the earlier incarnations, so I am not tainted by the “OMG they changed everything” school of thought. As I tend to enjoy just wandering about, exploring and finding things in virtual worlds (I decided to not just barrel through the story, which was a wise move) then this is right up my alley. Add to that the excellent “British” humor, awesome visual style and engrossing (if somewhat boiled down) story and I can overlook the game’s many flaws.
And – aside from a gorgeous soundtrack (which I am listening to as I write) – listen to the voice acting! OMG. Consider me absorbed.
