I wont get to play it until later tonight, but I think people are basing the game off what it should be like, the actually Fable games, rather than the fun little coop game it's trying to be!

Does seem that way from what I've read, I look forward to playing it I don't think we get enough 4 player co-op beat em up games! Last one I even recall was Castle Crashers which was great but since then I can't name any.

It's local only, but if you haven't played it I highly recommend the Scott Pilgrim game.

Whoooo, it's local?

I doubt that... but if true I won't be buying it now! What game nowadays is released as a coop game but only local? The answer 99% of the time is none!

I mean Fable 2/3 were online coop, so why would Lionhead throw that out the window and make it local only. I may text my brother-in-law who works for them and double check this ;)

Edit: Ok I just asked my B-I-L and this is what he said;

"You can have any combination. 2 local, 2 live, 4 local, 4 live, etc etc. People saying its local only.. That's fricken' dumb!

There you go then!

It's XBLA.

Look at the case image to the right, it says Arcade on it.

A link to a decent review that covers most of the game pretty well i'd give it a 6 or 7 instead of 8 personally but thats for reasons other then gameplay.

Its a prettty fun game i just think most of the review are a bit based on the fact it had Fable in the name and most were a bit dissapointed with how it turned out.

I know people hate IGN, but...

Fable Heroes - Video Review - YouTube

I tend to like their reviews because they pick apart games thoroughly even if people think the shit they tend to highlight is laughable.

Just tried the trial and it bored the crap out of me. It's just nothing above average. I think most of the reviews are spot on to be honest. Castle Crashers and Scott Pilgrim are both similar XBLA games that are so much better.

This game is both fun and very weak. It's fun to just run around beating stuff up with the very low difficulty, but the combat system is just weak as fuck. There are no combos and all you ever do is mash X, since you can't even chain moves together with X and Y. The unlock system is beyond terrible and luck-based (you have to play a "board game," which isn't even a proper board game but is just a board you move around on using dice). The minigames are boring (mash A for 15 seconds, win minigame).

But, still, it's somehow pretty fun despite technically being a pretty poor game. I think it's the low difficulty; smashing out enemies that can barely put up a fight is always fun.

Played it for two hours and I think the reviewers have been very harsh, spent a lot more for a lot less, do not be put off, check the trial out.

not the best game in the world but certainly not the worst.

Will the fable bashing ever stop

My only problem with it is the controls feel really...loose. Like in the IGN review I do have to side with them about the movement issue (especially as the Giant Hero). Other than that, this is a fun, change of pace type of game.
