    [+] Whelp...I managed to give fable III some semblence of challenge....

    Played it on challegenging difficulty (because normal just ain't much of a challenge) and with my own 'house rules' which mades it a bit harder so I don't spam healing.

    And that combined with the later stages of the game have gone from 'casually fun' to 'interestingly challenging'.

    And I stayed alive for 19 hours....wow. To think I would have been knocked out easily because I actually tempted fate several times and fought with my screen in a red hue.

    I hope Lionhead does put a harder difficulty for Fable IV like the pc version of Fable III pc; I don't understand how the console only had one difficulty mode :/

    I'll be hoping onto Kingdom of Amalur later, Fable's distant cousin...once it finishes downloading from steam that is.

    looks like the only challenging thing to this game is trying to get the 'You Can't bring me down' achievement on challenging difficulty (completing the game without being knocked out).

    [+] looks like the only challenging thing to this game is trying to get the 'You Can't bring me down' achievement on challenging difficulty (completing the game without being knocked out).

    I still feel this is a genuinely good game with interesting dialouge, good humour, and an atmosphere I never got tired off, but I can see why people complain about the difficulty.

    In all fairness, I do agree that it shouldn't be balls-hard like Dark Souls even if I want it to be; the game just never stops restating and repeating the fact that you are supposed to be a hero and do superhuman feats. I'd say, making it a hardcore game would kill the purpose, and that's coming from someone like me who likes their rpg games challenging.

    But I think the combat system has been way too over-simplified over the series. I've always seen fable as a game that can both be casual and semi-hardcore, and I think it's fair enough to earn that achievement in my next playthrough on challenging.

    The only other jarring fact is that melee and ranged seem pretty underpowered compared to spells. While it is possible to not use magic, and rely on melee and range, I'd have to chug potions like crazy especially when faced with swarms (yes swarms, not small mobs) of hallow men or hobbes.

    I'd like for the next installment to have some kind of class system: say you could be like a 'hero of will' which specializes in magic or 'hero of skill' like Reaver, which makes you a powerhouse with guns.

    I do like th fact of being overpowered in fable III, and I like the spells, but I feel bad for the people trying to make minimal use of magic or who prefer a ranged or melee oriented playstyle.

    I find that this system would make players of all sorts feel happy with whatever style they want too rather than saying all magic is overpowered.

    It helps balances the game a little too given the already oversimplified nature of combat so Lionhead doesn't need to keep revamping features each time.

    • Anyways, I said that just because a lot of people complain that magic is overpowered.

      Given the more casual nature of fable, I propse that you can choose to become the 'hero' type to become, which is pretty much in line with what the game is about.

      I'm sure a lot of people were put off because magic pretty much overshadows melee and ranged.

      Not that I didn't use them, I would have a harder time to them, but they were 'specialized' tools at best since spells were just more effective.

    • it's not just difficulty. it's that u don't have to do anything else that mess around. the enemies r not even enemies. u could easily kill them or avoid them. most side missions r talk to guy bring the thing back and such. and the finally. i really hated it so much i deleted the game as soon as i saw it :D

    This was the one Fable game that I couldn't bring myself to be evil in. Being evil in the others was okay, but in this... You're the royal family, and a king or queen should not be evil ...

Plus, I got attached to my allies and didn't want to disappoint them.

    I was really enjoying Fable III with my magic-centric character and then I got incredibly distracted trying to level up weapons...>_<
