    fable too easy/short

    The game is fun, but way to short & easy. I just got the game for
    xbox on sunday morning. It took me about 8 hours to beat it the first
    time with a completely good character. About 30 minutes of that
    time I was merely making money. (Had 2,000,000, donated about
    1,200,000 and became really close to full good). Although I didnt
    do the sidequests. Bosses are way to easy. I beat jack in his first
    form in about 2 minutes. And about 4 minutes in his dragon form.
    I was a spellwarrior that used Enflame, Psyhical Shield, Multi-
    Strike and slow time. Jack of blades was pretty easy with slow
    time+berserk+solus greatsword+multistrike (my hits were about
    1200 with berserk, and about 4000+ on a multistrike).
    I also beat the game again in about 7 hours the next time, but
    I didnt do the side-quests or make money.

    I think I'll try it again as a pure magic user. No melee.

    This is the classic gripe about Fable Let's hope that Fable 2 lives up to the 10 times the content claim. If you're only playing the game to get to the end you gonna miss a lot of fun. I think that will be even more true in Fable 2. It's the journey ;)

    exactly
    fable wasn't meant to be a long game cause there was so much else for you to do... like a lot of RPG's lately, the games tries less to challenge you and more to immerse you... so there's stuff like side quests, interactions, random customizations, stuff to find and try to do... Just look at games like Oblivion and Mass Effect and the like... at least half the game is extra junk that you could skip and still beat the game, but you'd miss out on what made the game so immersing, what made it an RPG...
    as said before, someone bragging about how fast they beat fable is like a man bragging how fast he finishes in bed... you missed the whole point of the 'activity' :lol:

    Re: fable too easy/short

    But unfortunately, making something easy but immersive is not much of good combination. You'll need some difficulty or else there is no sense of accomplishment after its all done. As an example, the defeat of Dragon Jack should have made me feel proud, but it was hollow. Of course, this is just in the case of combat, but then there is always something you have to fight. Things like marriage, dogs, and children are good, just don't forget to bestill the real strength of an RPG, fighting evil (or good) and defending the innocent (or brutally slaughtering them), not to mention the kick-*** armor and weapons, gotta love those too.

    It may be short, but if you just do the quest then you'll never realize how much fun it is.

    Kill people, get people drunk, upgrade your skills and explore!

    The game is Outrageous:D, still it is true that it was very short:(, but it was worth it and it's quality is unequalable, I consider that it was'nt as that easy, though, cause personally, the game was quick, but some missions get so ugly that I actually became stressed:wacko::realmad:. I ca'nt wait for Fable 2 to come to my PC;)

    that's not really a big accomplishment :lol:
    again, as has already been said, if you do that then you are missing the whole point...
    Fable is not a game based around getting to the end as swiftly as possible... if you want that, try a traditional shooter...
    Fable was about being a Hero, and really feeling like you're living that life of the Hero of Albion... they succeeded in some ways, and failed in others, but the point is that doing side quests and levelling your character are not "extras" tossed in for the hell of it... they're part of the whole package that if you choose not to experience, you really aren't playing the full game...
    Fable was never meant to be hard and getting to the end is hardly some big achievement...

    in your mad dash to the climax, you've skipped the best parts of the activity ;)

    I didnt mean it as an accomplishment.
    my accompishment is owning evvery buyable building and marrying every person who can be married :P

    I like to finish game first and then look at how each skill changes your character. thats another activity to do on it :) full strength and nothing else makes you look like a dwarf :) thats bigger than normal. not taller, bigger
