    Ok so F1 was not massive but big enough to enjoy exploring the areas, F2 stepped it up with regions like Brightwood, Bowerlake, and Wraithmarsh all large and fun to explore (ive explored every inch of every region in every Fable game) F2 was a big game. F3 is small in comparison, we were promised regions twice the size of some of the F2 regions? Where are they then Lionhead? The two biggest regions in F3 (in my opinion) are Mistpeak and Shifting sands, to be fair shifting sands is big but theres nothing in it, Brightwood took me ages to find everthing and Mistpeak is smaller than Bowerlake? And so is Millfeilds (its the same place goddamit!) Anyone else notice this? and dont get me started on Mourning Wood, compared to Wraithmarsh its just not as big.

    Btw i dont hate F3 i think its a great game lol.

    If this is aimed at Lionhead, wouldn't it be better suited for their forums?

    I actually think the regions are bigger this time round. It's the lack of content with-in those regions that's the real problem.

    That theory disproves a shrinking albion theory though. :D

    why, not at all! see, certain plates with hero minerals force subduction to the continents. as albion shrinks, the amount of magic needed for lionhead to make a sequel increases. ^_^

    We all know that Peter is an idiot and has has ruined the Fable series. The small map is one of the problems. Just because you can jump and swim DOESN'T mean EVERYONE WANTS TO. As Ben Croshaw said, 'You CAN, but why would you want to?' If you look at a game like Oblivion or Fallout, the map is extensive and it's fun to explore and level up as you explore. The only problem is fast traveling. If you got rid of traveling, it might take longer from one place to another, but you would see more. It would make the game more immersive.Also, if there was weather, it would be nice to see there be some atmoesphere.

    I mean more like Fog, and getting wet when it rains, and having the wind blow on you and such. That's what I mean

    translation anyone?
    Also Erika. Spellcheck, learn it, love it, use it. This post box (is that the right term?) might not have a spellchecker built in, but you have a computer (I assume) where there will be a word processing program somewhere that does, write in there then copy and paste it here.

    Well, there are smaller, but its easier to get LOST in them when compared to the other games.

    Come to think of it, maybe there IS a reason to why the Fable 3 maps are sooooo not accurate. Lionhead KNEW they made the regions smaller when they promised bigger, so to create that sense of "bigness", they made the maps useless. That way, we get lost easily, and we usually get lost in big places. Hence, the sense of "bigness". Sadly, we got used to the regions and realised they weren't so big any more. Failed plan, Lionhead.

    No, it's just that every game focuses on different regions of the country. Oh, and it's not shrinking
    that much, on the other hand I prefer to have a few well-made regions than a lot of big and
    mediocre regions.

    Well said, that. The regions in Fable III are beautiful, nonetheless.
