Fable is a revolutionary new RPG that seems to be a cross between KOTOR/Grand Theft Auto/Any of the 3 LOTR games. You are constantly given the choice to be good or evil. If you're good, people will cheer at you, people will like you more, and you'll grow blonde hair and junk (boo....). If you are evil (YAY!) you grow horns, get devil eyes, leave a blood trail where ever you walk, people run away from you, etc. This is cool and adds a lot! Who doesnt like getting reactions from the helpless villagers! Now for the GTA part. You can do about anythign you want. You can kill random people (if you have a weapon), bribe the guards, get married (There is a long process up to this.), beat people senseless, buy houses or shops (needed for marriage) and such. And LOTR....well it's just the Middle Ages part. Well, you start out as a boy and have to do some good deeds and get your sis a gift. Well, your village is attacked by bandits and you are the sole survivor (sort of. NO SPOILERS HERE). A mysterious man rescues you and brings you to the Hereos' Guild, where people train to be bad*** warriors. You do your training and you are on your way to do whatever you want. Well until you have to advance in the storyline. Now, there is a lot of walking in this game. A lot. The first major quest has you running through about 60 areas, protecting helpless traders! Luckily, this reveals many Cullis Gates. Now to explain these Cullis Gates. This is Fable's "Beam me up, Scotty!"....teleporters. This helps SO much. I love it. The gameplay is your average hack and slash, but very fun! Which hack and slash isnt? Now for something hidden in the depths of Fable. Love. Yes, love. You, your special little Hero of coolness can get married. Both genders too. But you msut first make them fall in love with you, which requires flirting, gifts, and lots of Renown (famousness). Then you get her to fall in love. Now you must propose to her/him with a wedding ring (lots o dough) and then she/he demands a house. Go buy her/him a house. They start from 1,500 coins to about.....50,000. *scream* Then you marry them. To keep them in love, you must continue to flirt and give them gifts. In return, they will give you gifts! I got plate legging in my first (and last. *evil face*) marriage. You can do something else with your spouse that I will NOT mention and I didnt do. It's M rated, so you know. Another plus is, there are divorces! If your spouse is not satisfied, they will ask for a divorce. You can also beat them, but either way. You get lots of evil points for getting a divorce....even though I dont know why. ANd thats about it. In conclusion...FABLE ROCKS! BUY!
