The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke & Mirrors

 

Telltale\'s to The Wolf Among Us proved its commitment\r\nto Bill Willingham\'s Fables and its\r\ndark side. The first episode ended on a startling cliffhanger, leaving the\r\nsecond, Smoke & Mirrors, with some big shoes to fill. While still...

A nostalgic trip back to Albion.

Gorgeous visuals that are much improved over the original.; Same goes for the reworked audio.; Commendable Smartglass integration

Too bad technical issues undermine the excellent presentation.; Aged controls and animations feel clunky

In many ways, Fable Anniversary is just a prettier version of the original game with the added The Lost Chapters DLC thrown in for good measure. In the end, Lionhead's remake is a great way for fans of the original to take a trip down memory lane or an...

Fable's updated and better than ever.

Fable is still the same inviting role-playing game it was in 2004. It’s easy from a combat perspective, but it was never about being the best warrior. Instead, the game wants you to build the personality and ideals befitting of a true hero, which makes...

2004 was a good year in gaming. World of Warcraft, Sims 2, GTA III, Star Wars Battlegrounds and, of course,..

For those who have never played Fable, you take the role of a young boy, the sole survivor of your village. You’ll be trained and sent into the world, learning secrets about your true calling. Fable wasn’t the first third person, epic RPG but it’s...

While Anniversary may feel like Lionhead is doing a sloppy job in 2014, that isn't the case; it's a testament to what an excellent job it did in 2008 with Fable 2.

Looks gorgeous ; Distinct humour

Feels dated ; Clunky controls
