Fable 3 on PC 360

Fable 3 Screen Shots

Fable 3 is a Shooting game available on the PC 360. It can be played in Firstperson modes.

Fable 3 is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.

Fable 3 can be played in a Firstperson mode. First Person games view the world from the eyes of the in-game character. You don't see the character themselves apart from their hands, gun or possibly feet as in Mirror's Edge. Because of the imediacy of the experience and sheer volume of visual information the player is offered First Person games lend themselves to the shooting genre. The FPS view enables players to immerse themselves in the experience and react quicker to events in the game. Other games have used a first person view to deliver an unusual perspective on an old genre - Mirror's Edge for example delivers a Platforming genre through a First Person view.

Tech Gamer review Mon, 30 May 2011

Fable 3 creates a memorable fantasy in Albion that is ultimately let down by a limited combat system, brief storyline and several failed attempts at streamlining. Explore the game at your own leisure though and it becomes something altogether more enjoyable.

My experience with the Fable franchise is limited to the first few chapters of the first game, originally released on the Xbox in 2004. I found the world of Albion to be beautifully presented, and the gameplay to be ambitious. Unfortunately, I found the boss battles uninspiring, and after several failed attempts to defeat one in particular, I gave up on the game.

Returning Gamer review Mon, 08 Nov 2010

Fable III pulsates with life beneath its action adventure facade. For those with time to invest this is an experience with the ability to create a hundred joyful game play moments.

Fable III is cut from the same cloth as games from other English developers like David Braben and Ian Bell. Peter Molyneux has come much further in terms of delivery but underneath it all is the same essential desire to create a living breathing world.

Family Gamer review Tue, 26 Oct 2010

Fable III addresses all walks of life and dodges no bullets. Once you've got through the opening hours it's a place that's hard to stay away from. But I wonder how many casual gamers will make it that far and get to the good stuff.

Fable III takes the previous game's successes and looks to broaden them into a tale about human relationships and commitments. In doing so Lionhead have pulled in many Hollywood glitterati to voice their characters - Michael Fassbender, Ben Kingsley, ZoŽ Wanamaker, Bernard Hill, John Cleese, Simon Pegg, and Stephen Fry all add their dulcet tones and knowing winks to the fabric of the game.

Dressup Gamer review Sat, 16 Oct 2010

Fable III hopes to make good on old promises. And, as Albion moves from steam powered optimism to industrial strife it manages to build on all that made Fable II such a strong experience, while ratcheting the moral maze up a few notches.

Fable III 360 is a very rare beast - whilst Peter Molyneux isn't adverse to sequels, this will be the first time Lionhead have produced a trilogy. At a recent games conference he gave an insight into why Fable has been such a compelling project, delving into the books and films that inspired it. This and the opportunity to play the latest build of Fable III developed some exciting and intriguing thoughts for me.

Family Gamer review Fri, 21 May 2010

Fable 3 extends Fable 2 with more action and deeper relationships. Set years later, we play the son of our Fable 2 hero. This time round though, the challenge is focused on the juxtaposition of making and fulfilling promises.

It's an experience that at first seems like any old videogame but, as we've explained in our family gamer review, those who get beyond the first few hours will find an interesting and engaging experience.
