E3: Gameplay of Fable 2

E3: Gameplay of Fable 2

Back from Microsoft's private showroom, we bring you some nifty Fable 2 gameplay, presented and played by Peter "snake charmer" Molyneux himself. The video is cut in two parts, and here is the first one. Some combat sequences, a bit of exploration within gorgeous settings, a little tour of Brownstone city, and a few funny mini games. The second part should be coming soon. Stay tuned.
Update: Second part is now online !

Grow some patience Korndog, they probably haven't had time to translate it to english yet.... No need to bitch about it...

Video looked good, but I'm still not happy with the whole "sword goes through badguy" without a hit.... Just like the last fable....

Should I play the first one before I play this, or will it be easy for me to jump right in?

I said it before and I'll say it again. This is one of the 360's most beautiful games.

Should be able to jump right in. Its set 500 years after the first so its not likely you will meet any of the old characters and ive read it sort of explains what happened 500years ago.

Looks only average. Too much bloom like in the first game and animations are choppy.

This game isn't about the looks, its about the world simulation. In what other game can you swear at NPCs at will? And have them actually react?

I'm totally getting it.

Btw, is it just me, or does the second video (on streaming) not have sound? Plus, it cuts off right when they get to the fishing :(

haha its så freaking typical of ppl complaining at the graphics. when it finally comes a beautiful game with colourful, detailed environments with alot of trees, grass and such, alot of people are complaining. but when someone announce a new, terrible looking unreal engine 3 game, wich looks like all other games based on that engine, everyone like "wow, looks pretty good"..

bah >-<

this looks stunning and this is a game that the market really needs. cant wait to play it.

I think maybe he's watching the high quality streaming video. I have a new 2.4Ghz Quad Core PC with an ATI HD 2400 Pro graphics card and 4GB of RAM and the high quality streaming videos are still choppy! :(

It could be though as it looks fantastic.

I like the lighting in the swamp area. :D

The lanscape is really nice, shame that it renders as you move along like that though, hopefully that won't be like that in the game, framerate looks super smooth also, 60 FPS ?

Wow at the city area, this games graphics are amazing.

It's more of less the foliage that draws in at a distance, which unfortunately is a common thing. It was just as common in Oblivion, but it was cleverly faded in the distance. GPU's simply aren't powerful enough to draw grass that far into the distance at present, but to have no grass detail at all these days is also poor - so it's hard to win really.

The game still looks fantastic though.

Hmm I suppose, but it seems a lot more noticeable than in other games, kameo managed to do it without pop in though, and so does Banjo from what I can tell.

the punches have some wieght to it, it feels like you are hitting something, its fast paced too (not ninja gaiden fast pace, but not slow motion either) balance between the two.

Whoever says this game looks average is just trying to troll on Microsoft's excellent lineup for this year.

I didn't excpect it to run this good at this stage. Intermittent pauses aside (due to loading probably) the game runs extremely smooth, looks great and the combat is way above the RPG average. The Dog is a very "intelligent" NPC and that's without a glance of the history itself.

Microsoft and Molyneux might have a real winner on hands.

If microsoft wasn't retarded, they would actually let their developers develop with a hard drive in mind. The hard drive would help eliminate problems such as this, reduce loading, etc. =/

With the ability to put the game completely on to the hard drive maybe you can?

This is a beta build so its obviously running from a HDD, so whats your point exactly ?

This is more to do with draw speed than media speed, whether they turned the draw distance down so that it would tun better for E3 or not is anyones guess though.

Why is that obvious? Could they not run it off of a dvd?
