Peter Molyneux’s long-awaited followup to 2004’s Fable is so good that it has turned this RPG-hating critic into a full-fledged addict who’s considering leaving his day job and making Fable II his life. In fact, much of the appeal of the game is that you are creating a life for yourself in game form. You start off by choosing to play as either male or female, and from there, you can buy property; become a master of short (swords), long-range (guns) weapons, or magic; have safe or unprotected sex; have kids; and so on and so on. The breadth of detail is awe-inspiring, and everything from the graphics and voice acting (Helena Bonham Carter, Stephen Fry, and Bill Nighy) to the score is absolutely top notch. It seems like every decision involved with making this game was made in the interest of creating as immersive and fun an environment as possible. (www.fable2.com)
