The new Fable 1 anniversary game looks absolutely beautiful...but I can't help but feel I might be missing out on the original and the magic the came from it.

I am questioning whether or not to go old school or start fresh. I mean I've never played the first fable before and I've ofcourse played 2 and 3 in all their wonder and authenticity.

Anyone shed some light?

From what I've read, the new Fable Anniversary did nothing to fix old bugs that were in the game (clunky combat, bad path-finding, ect.), and instead added some new ones.

In the end, it boils down to whether you want to try and find the nostalgia others are so keen to laud, or experience enhanced graphics with the risk of new bugs. Either way, you're in for a fun game. If I didn't already own the original, I would probably pick up the new one.

Fable had and still has fine combat, heavier the weapon the slower you swing it.

Some people just gripe about games too much, down to pixels.

When I remarked about clunky combat, I was referring mostly to the targeting system. Walking through Greatwood, I see a poor trader getting attacked by a swarm of giant hornets. I rush to his aid, swinging my obsidian greathammer. Silly me, I used targeting, and instead of selecting the many enemies around Wormy the Tattoo Artist, it instead locks onto him. All I see is a mess of polygons, so I start swinging for the bleachers. To my dismay, Wormy the Tattoo Artist goes flying away with a crushed skull and I wrack up a few evil points. The giant hornets find this amusing. My Hero, a good aligned character, does not.

Sure, I could not use targeting and just flail around like a madman, but I do enjoy getting combat multiplies and such and a few spells do require targeting to be more effective.

Should have been more careful :P

Pathing is fine also, you can only go where you can go essentially and anyone with you will stick to you like glue.

Enemies will take a detour to flank you.
