The Fable 3 review embargo has now been lifted, which is much earlier than I had first thought. There is already a huge choice of reviews appearing on the Internet, but not many that concentrates just on the Co-Op. Fans of the franchise will know that Co-Op has now been expanded on Fable III, which is just what they wanted.
When you begin the game you have to make the choice of who you will want to play, a prince or princess. Do you remember the hero from Fable 2? Well you are the child. Nicholas “bapenguin” Puleo from Co-Optimus has written an informative review, and even before he gets into his stride points out that the game is more “an adventure game and less like an RPG.”
There are many changes in this new version, such as no longer collecting orbs, but gaining points towards Guild Seals. The next change is hunting all the time for weapons or armor; this is not as important any more. However, there are some special tasks that you need to use certain weapons for, just remember that the weapons and armor that you start with will be with you throughout the game.
The overall score for Fable 3 has been given 4 out of 5, but Co-Op has only achieved 3.5. Read Puleo’s full review to understand how he came up with such a score. View Alan Ng’s recent review roundup of Fable III.
