Any other fable fans feeling betrayed?

I have been a hardcore fable fan since fable 1. I played all the games and all the dlc I did every quest and every easter egg and everything all the games had to offer and I loved it all. I mean fable 3 did feel a little less like an RPG than the others but it was still good but fable the journey is like a slap in the face. It's nothing like fable should be and I feel like lionhead is just jumping on the kinect bandwagon for moneys sake rather than for us the players. Bad as this game looks I would still give it a try if it weren't for the kinect which I won't buy just for this game.

Yeah I feel betray, I never played the first one been trying to find it for a reasonable price but cheapest I found was over 30. bought the second and all the dlc loved it. preorder 3rd and got collecter edition, was disappointed but still bought dlc.

and now they do this! I thought they would make up for there mistake but they decided to keep coming instead of trying to dig there way out of the hole they made they decided to dig down in hope of buried treasure..

I feel betrayed as well. I have been a fan of the series since the beginning. PM has made promises, not fulfilled them. I have still stuck by the game series. Even with some horrible glitches that occurred in 2 and 3 I have looked past them and now they pull this crap. If this was Fable 4 and actually looked good I would buy it but until Fable 4 comes out I guess I am done with the series.

I never had the original xbox either, so I played it immediately before Fable 2.(Though I bought 2 first.) Unless your an avid collector of the series, you should do what I did and buy it from xbox originals.

Anyways hopefully their next main game doesn't have kinect at all, but it's becoming more and more likely it will at least have kinect features.

This whole series can go suck one! Forever let down and disappointed by it. Aside from the very few good things, there wasn't enough to make me care for this game or the 4th. I just got fed up and annoyed, with the 3rd game. Felt like a chore to complete.

Enjoyed all the Fable games. Far from perfect, but very fun in all. Fable the Journey isn't your typical Fable game. You arn't the hero from the beginning. It's one characters adventure in a world we've known and loved.

Being able to explore Albion in a new way will be a fun experience. A new story to sink into. For any fan of the series who already has a kinect its at least worth checking out.

I played Fable 2 and loved it.
I played Fable 3 and liked it.
I bought the first Fable and LOVED it.

Now this. Damn you Lionhead.

Wonder why nobody mentions Fable Heroes, that's not a typical Fable game either. Sounds like hating one but not the other to me.

If you had played the game you would know that it's played sitting down and not jumping about as you put it

If you're jumping around, you're doing it wrong Honestly though, you will get a shoulder work-out. After a coupla hours I was feelin' it. Borrow a copy from a friend before you buy. You may be surprised.

I have 2 & 3 but I may stop with them because I liked 3 less than 2. I never wanted to play the first one. We got 2 for my wife and I got hooked. But betrayed, nah.

I've also played all the fable series and have been very disappointed by fable 3 but it was playable and after a while it stopped bothering me that it was so different from the others. After seeing the trailer for the forth, I don't think I'll even give it a try. Looks like a waste of money

Garbage, this game is garbage i can't believe they even bothered finishing this after the creator left. I know i'm going to get flamed for this but i'll have the last laugh when you'll agree with after buying the game.

This is happening to much for me when it comes to games. The first one is really amazing and you think finally something great has been made and then they start screwing it up. For me like AC the first two were amazing just like the first two Fables and then they added MP to AC and start shipping them out every year. Same crap new story! It's like they forget about what the fans enjoy but they don't care and change what they want.

Even Fable 3 story sucked because you knew what was gonna happen and basically how it was gonna end. It's like no thought even went into Fable 3 they were more concerned about getting money. Molyneux even said he didn't wanna create new weapons for Fable 3 but make the weapons evolve, to me that is laziness.

Yeah I feel betrayed!

I love how people base their opinion off of....what exactly. You have not played the game. How about you give the game a chance. Also, this is not continueation of the Fable series. It is not that, it is not Fable 4, it is a 'spin-off', a game set in the Fable universe. That is like saying I hate Star Wars now because of Force Unlesashed is about a new jedi and story arch, or I am betrayed by Halo because Halo Wars is an RTS. Just silly.

Fable has the recent spin off arcade title, fable coin golf on windows phones, and now a kinect title. Hold your dissapointment until the next fable in the 'series' is released on the next xbox. Then after you 'play it' you can complain.

It's just, everyone who is saying The Journey is betraying the series, hasn't even said a word about Fable Heroes, which actually makes something good of the universe. Not great, but definitely good.

To be honest, I'm willing to try it. Whether or not I do depends on eventually when I get Kinect.

Why would you feel betrayed? Its not like fable is kinect only now... fable 4 is still coming out. This was just a side game. Besides this is the best kinect game to date.

Truly, my friend.
After playing it for 2 hours, I can say its the best kinect title so far, speaking of kinect controls.
At least the best Ive played.

It's not that bad guys...

I played through the whole game and the only issues I have are the length and replay-ablility of the game. I do wish it had a little longer story, especially considering the $60 price tag (which I didn't pay- thank you Microsoft pre-order). The only other issue I have is the fact that once the game is over, it's really over. I loaded up the finished game and it started me all over again with none of my levels or experience.

I thought the controls worked fairly well, especially the shard spell. Having to wave my hand to make the fireball took too long during the more intense enemy waves.

I mentioned a few other minor glitches in another post, but all-in-all I liked the game as a Kinect title. I really don't think this is the end of the Fable story. My guess is that Lionhead will continue the series without Molyneux and the next title will be an RPG with our new friend Gabriel as the guide to our hero.

You can use voice commands to change spells which speeds things up

As a huge Fable fan and someone who a Kinect, no I don't feel betrayed.. Especially after playing the game through and it being one of the best Fable games and my favourite current Kinect game, I enjoyed this game A LOT... It was MADE for Fable fans it's nothing but lore and Theresa history lessons the whole way through... Not enough Chicken jokes though..

I'd argue that people who feel betrayed aren't really that big a fan of the series. My point of view comes from playing all the games, having 100% on Pub games, F2 and F3 (close on Heroes) and I've read all of the books, including the three short stores. This is a fantastic series and if you've read "Edge of the World" you would understand why playing this game is a requirement if you want to follow what's happening within Albion.

Granted, I haven't beaten Journey yet, I'm close, but even thus far, what this game reveals in terms of the history is just great.

In terms of the actual gameplay, I like it! I'd say that this is up there with Gunstringer as far as great games for the more "hardcore" gamer set. The controls have been great in combat and in travel, but just ok when dealing with puzzles.

Sure, it sucks if you don't have kinect, but it's cheap enough now. Just got get one if you want to play the game that bad.

This is a really, really good game that is vastly under appreciated.
