There Is A Hero Inside Us All...

Gameplay - 8/10
Storyline - 9/10
Graphics - 7/10
Game Score : 24/30

Fable III is the third video game in the Fable series of action role-playing games (RPG) developed by Lionhead Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. It focuses on the player's struggle to overthrow the King of Albion by forming alliances and building support for a revolution. After a successful revolt, the player becomes the monarch and can then lead Albion in whichever direction they please. The game was released on Xbox 360 in 2010 and on PC on May 17th 2011 via both Games For Windows and Steam.

Fable III is set 50 years after the events of Fable II on the continent of Albion where the Fable II series is set. The old monarch, the hero of Fable II, has died and left the Kingdom of Albion to Logan, the player's older brother. Some characters allude to how Logan has "changed" in the last four years, and is excessively tyrannical now. The game primarily focuses on the development of the player as a hero through the relationships and choices that he/she makes in varying situations. Whether you choose to walk the path of pure good, pure evil, or a mixture of both is totally up to you the player; but don't forget every choice you make has repercussions. After a traumatic event that Logan forces upon the player, they escape Logan's castle along with their mentor, Sir Walter Beck and their servant, Jasper. 

I thoroughly enjoyed playing the first installment of this series but sadly did not get to partake of the second. So you can imagine my delight when I got a hold of a copy of Fable 3 to review, from start to finish this game reminded me of all the reasons I had come to love the series. From the gripping storyline to the specific character development you have for your character, not to mention the biggest plus of all re-playability. I can guarantee at least 3 play throughs of this game from the varied and sheer content it brings to the table. Not to mention it is relatively easy to pick up and the control scheme is simple and easy to understand; my only fault with the game is the quest management system. At times due to the sheer number of quests one can undertake simultaneously it is at times hard to keep track of what to do and where to go. Aside from this flaw I definitely enjoyed playing this game and will certainly be playing it again in the future. If you are a fan of adventure games or RPG's then this is the perfect blend for you...
