BRILLIANT

The most entertaining game I've played for a while - and got it at a steal for R99.

You won't be sorry.

Simply oustanding, especially for a first-timer to TellTale's Games

I've been eyeing this game for quite some time, and was ecstatic when Raru had it on special (Yes, thank you once again for a great gaming bargain!)

The game is based on the comic book series, 'Fables' by Bill Willingham. As you've guessed it, it deals with a lot of folklore and fairy tale characters, such as Sleeping Beauty, to even Bloody Mary. You play as Bigby Wolf, (AKA The Big Bad Wolf in Fairy Tales)who is a sheriff of Fabletown and have to help the Fables that now live among society and the changes that happens to them.

The game has a lot of violence, profanity (Jeez, that profanity) and intriguing storylines that branch out based on your decisions (As this is a TellTale's game after all). There are many moral choices that depicts how the characters act towards you, and how the world changes.

The voice acting is superbly done, I give my hat off to the voice actors, the soundtrack fits the game perfectly, and the artwork and design for the environment and characters are amazingly done. The frame rate does tend to freeze for about a second after your decisions in certain scenarios, but I guess it's part of the 'decision-making factor' that now changes the world around you.

If you ever loved seeing Disney's stories come to life in an adult-themed manner, I highly recommend this.

Twist & Turns

Telltale is great story tellers and bringing this comic book to live was a master piece. Snow White etc. but this is no ordinary Fable and Not for kids. this is where the wolf is the Sheriff and kick butts and rip arms off. Worth every second.
