Fable 2: Knothole Island 360 is a Adventuring game available on the 360. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer Cooperative modes.
Fable 2: Knothole Island 360 is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Fable 2: Knothole Island 360 can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Fable 2: Knothole Island 360 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Fable 2: Knothole Island 360 can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Fable 2 was one of the most anticipated games of 2008, and one that I really enjoyed playing. For anyone not familiar with the game, it promises to let you be the character you want to be in an open world brimming with adventure. You can become a property magnate, a treasure hunter, the greatest hero Albion has ever seen, or even all three.
However, Fable 2 failed to live up to my expectations. Sure, it was great, but I wanted it to be so much more. The free roaming world turned out to have barriers, the choices you could make turned out to be limited and of limited consequences, and there were plenty of little problems that changed the game from ‘excellent' down to ‘very good'. It's still a brilliant game though - when I picked it up to start playing Knothole Island I had to drag myself away from expanding my property empire or finding someone's lost son.
