I first checked eBay for this game, and it was almost $40, not including shipping. On WalMart it was so much cheaper, and arrived quickly. The game is great, and is a great buy, rather than having to dowload all the extra content through Xbox Live. The game is the same as the normal Fable 2, but comes with content that was added after the release of the game, which includes Murgo's Trading stand in Bowerstone Market where you can buy new items, and dog breed potions (Husky, Dalmation, Bloodhound). And the Knothole Island location where you can buy new items and complete more quests. Overall great game, and I recommend it to everyone who likes these types of games.
About This Item
- Choices, consequences. The innovative gameplay pioneered in the original Fable provided gamers with a never-before-seen level of immersion in a truly interactive world. Fable II expands upon the scope and depth of the Xbox classic by adding incredible new features and creating a wider, more complex kingdom of limitless choices and consequences. Players will have the option to play as a man or woman, get married, have children, and live a life of their own design all leading to different destinies.
- A land far, far away. Gamers will revisit the newly expanded world of Albion more than 500 years after the events of the original Fable, where they are free to explore the landscape and openly roam the countryside. For the right price, every house, hut, dungeon and castle is for sale. Players can witness how the world grows and changes in response to their decisions in incredible and unique ways as they rediscover Albion as if for the first time.
- Fight with ease. Fable II pioneers a new combat system designed to allow players to truly master hand weapons such as swords and maces, ranged combat weapons such as crossbows and guns, and an entirely new magic system. These three disciplines, while very accessible, are also amazingly deep, and allow players to mix combat styles and become everything from master swordsman to skilled ranger to evil magic wielder, each using a different single button on the Xbox 360 controller.
- A heros best friend. This groundbreaking addition to the game is integral to the theme of unconditional love in Fable II. A players canine companion will act as friend, compass and protector. Players must merely feed their pooch and he will love unconditionally, creating a bond that sets up emotion-filled journeys throughout this magical world.
- Experience the world together. For the first time in the Fable series, gamers can experience the expansive and immersive world of Fable II with friends, either on the same couch or over Xbox Live together in co-operative mode. Fable II embodies the new Xbox Experience and will extend the Xbox Live service further with the introduction of orbs; orbs allow for seamless Live Co-op play and interaction with other Fable II.

A very great price for this!
This is the Platinum Hits version
Great game, and it includes both DLC expansions. But let it be known this is the Platinum Hits version, not the GOTY edition that's pictured.
Semantics - "This is the Platinum Hits version"
It might be in platinum hits, but I believe the main point of the listing is that it contains all of the GOTY content (DLC, etc). One would think since the title has been out so long it would be difficult to find an original copy, collector's edition or GOTY title of the game. Still a great game no matter what the **BOX** that you don't look at while playing says.
With all the down loadable content already on the disk you save memory on your hard drive and money.
That pretty much describes the game. I bought this because a friend got me interested in Fable so i thought I would buy it. Turned out to be a GREAT! product. It keeps me entertained for hours and the different alignments you can choose from make it all that more interesting when replaying the game. The bad thing is it is a short main plot, quickly beaten. But the extra quests are what really keeps your attention.
the game you get is not the "game of the year" edition, you just get the fable 2 red cover version and i think with the added xbox 360 worlds (that you would have 2 buy) good game if you like fantasy game play, and yes i does have stupid spells that can be used. when i play i mostly prefer the guns or sword fighting options. the world you play in is pretty big, and very pretty. Recommended for teens and up, it does have some scary/gross enemies to battle.
An addicting game
When I bought Fable 2, I was really hope the game lived up to it's first game. Well, it did with some new improvements, the same gripping storyline is back and the fall of the hero's guild make it more intense. Some some new features and some old ones for example, making a family is back and jobs is a fun new way of making money. I made 15000 smiting at the Blacksmith!
Great due to comes with add-ons
If you are looking to get this game late like I did you want to make sure you get it in the Game of the Year Edition like me cause then you get all those costly game add-ons for free. Its a great fun game and everything you do makes your character who they are, loved it. Great Deal for sure.
Worth the Buy!
This game is definitely worth it's price. There are lots of options to playing this game, and it's an easy way to waste a few hours with it feeling like minutes; a fantastic boredom buster! I'm new to Xbox and found this similar to World of Warcraft (though, of course, nothing can really compare to WoW) with the quests and interactions with your surroundings. The graphics are also impressive, and is a great game for both younger kids, teenagers, and adults. If you're skeptical, like I was, on this game, don't worry. For $20, it's a great game, that doesn't require too much talent in the gaming area. I looked up a few youtube videos of game-play, which also made me more confident in my purchase!
Game is fun.
Got this for my boyfriend we are both gamers and he did not play this game like I did when it came out. So I got it for him because he wanted to get Fable 3 but only after he beat Fable 2. He like it so much that he beat it twice befor he moved on to Fable 3.
