XBA Review: Fable Anniversary
Written Monday, February 10, 2014 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
It’s a terrifying thought for those that remember 2004 like it was yesterday, but Fable is now almost a decade old. Launching on the original Xbox, the Lionhead action-RPG spawned one of Microsoft’s greatest original series, a collection of games with oodles of charm.
There’s something fitting then about Fable Anniversary. As the Xbox 360 enters its twilight years, this remaster arrives complete with a visual overhaul, The Lost Chapters content, SmartGlass support and a new achievement list, so that for the first time the whole trilogy can truly sit side-by-side. The question, of course, is whether Lionhead’s work has enhanced the original and whether the decade-old gameplay still holds up.
