What's the Fable series like? Is it Elderscrolls style RPGing? Is it any good?
Its really more like an action game with some light RPG elements. Combat is a simplistic affair, with one button for melee, range, and magic each. As you kill monsters, you get XP in whatever skill you used to kill them, and then use those points to unlock new abilities. There are no distinct levels in the game. The main draw here is the charm and humor of the Fable universe, and seeing how the game world reacts to your decisions. Good/evil decisions have permanent effects on the world around you, your relationships, what quests are open to you, what discounts/surcharges you get at shops, and even your appearance. Playing co-op with a friend can be a hoot, if somewhat marred by the goofy camera system.
I enjoyed Fable 1 and I love Fable 2. Being evil is a riot, as you can do some truly hilarious things. Also, just the off hand comments and reactions of the NPCs as you walk by can be pretty entertaining in their own right.
That's it in a nutshell. Again, its light on RPG elements so if you are looking for a robust RPG system look elsewhere. If you are looking for an action game that is fun and has a sense of (british) humor, you are in for a treat.
