We have just given you a collection of reviews for you to read, but now we have more details on the single negative review that we’ve read for Fable III. Is it justified or have they got it completely wrong?
The article in question comes from Destructoid, and while the majority of other reviews have generally been very positive, Destructoid has given the game a firm 5.5/10 score, even going as far to say that Fable III is a ‘step back for the franchise’ – ouch.
What has brought them to that conclusion though? Destructoid’s author Jim Sterling points out that while Fable III isn’t a bad game, it is just disappointing in his opinion. According to the review, Fable III lacks the sense of adventure seen in the previous Fable games, and he stresses that the developers (Lionhead Studios) have ‘neglected’ some important problems in the game.
Harsh words indeed, but what are your thoughts on this? Hopefully you’ll be able to give us your early impressions of the game after picking it up later today, but this one negative review certainly stands away from the rest of reviews which have praised the game in almost all aspects.
