How we rate the games?
Fable III is a third person shooting game, based on the Fable series. It seems like the first of the series was a serious hit at that time, but this one is not that good. A lot of people were really disappointing, including me, from the third one. I don't want to make a difference between the first, so I will just review the stuff this one has to make it more universal and include the people who have never played Fable at all.
Fable III is a game about a prince who lost his reign because of his brother. It was not actually his brother's intention, but the darkness made him to. When you progress through the game, you earn your lost respect from the cities around and gather troops against the darkness forces. You will fall in love with a girl, but it won't last long and you might loose her since the beginning, because your brothers orders you to choose whom to kill. It will be your choice, even at the end, when you have a chance to kill your brother, but the more troops you will gather, the better you will finish your game.
When the game starts, you can choose between the prince or the princess, but since I have never completed the game with the princess, I don't know how the story goes by her. Anyway, whatever you choose, the stories won't be much different from each other. This is a very nice feature of the game, since you can be a boy or a girl. You will choose a costume when the game starts and go meet the one you love.
Talking about the gameplay, you are the prince who will use weapons, to kill the forces of darkness. You can choose different types, from melee to ranged. Swords will have more power than pistols, because normally you won't benefit from the range. The more you will progress, the more you will unlock. You will have your own room where you can stash your weapons and you can upgrade them later. The weapons you choose are of vital importance, because they will affect your gameplay, so you better choose wisely.
At the end of each level, you will be able to spend your experience points and open chests which will enable you to have more powerful weapons, more abilities and even customize your character better. During the game, you will find silver keys to open chests which normally you cannot unlock. The rewards these chests have are better than the ones you open without keys. You will always go to a paradise place, after completing levels and you will than choose chests.
The armor you will choose, will also affect your gameplay, since the better you are equipped, the easier will the game be. You will have your room where you can customize your costumes with the appropriate colors you like. The enemies themselves will also have armors, so the stronger an enemy is, the more powerful its armor will be. You can also use magic and potions which will help you in your game and complete it easier.
If you want to ask about girlfriends or family, you can have a lot and make a lot of babies. You can even marry, but you will need a marriage ring and a home. Marrying more than once will just mean more marriage rings and also more trouble, if your wifes are face to face with each other. From time to time, they will offer you gifts which might help you, but don't expect much. You can also marry boys, if you are gay or you can even choose to marry girls if you are lesbian. Simply put, you will have somewhat liberty on your choices.
The graphics are very good, I really like the motion blur because it made the story too much realistic. The textures and lightning where very good, so if you just like graphics and want to hear a story, this game is for you. If you like the gameplay, it will be very boring, especially if you have played Fable I, which was by far much better than this one. Overall, I recommend this game only if you like stories with cool graphics.
There is a known problem or bug for the save files, which disables you to load the game, by crashing immediately. This was than removed by adding a new patch for the game, but I cannot guarantee if it will work. This kind of error, is known to happen on 64-bit operating systems.
