Fable takes place in the fictional world of Albion. Players assume the role of an orphaned boy who realizes his dream of becoming a hero. The choices players make in the game affect the perception and reaction to their Hero by the characters of Albion, and change the Hero's appearance to mirror what good or evil deeds the Hero has performed. In addition to undertaking quests to learn what happened to the Hero's family, players can engage in optional quests and pursuits such as trading, romance, and theft.
Fable was expanded and rereleased as Fable: The Lost Chapters for Xbox and Windows PC platforms in September 2005. The game was later ported to Mac OS X by Feral Interactive.
The Lost Chapters features all the content found in the original Fable,
as well as additional new content such as new monsters, weapons,
alignment based spells, items, armor, towns, buildings, and
expressions, as well as the ability to give children objects. The story
receives further augmentation in the form of nine new areas and sixteen
additional quests. Characters such as Briar Rose and Scythe, who played
only minor roles in the original game, are now given more importance
and are included in certain main and side quests.
What does not
Installer hangs, Movies don't play.
What was not tested
Playing through the whole game.
Had to use Windows Xp to install Fable because I wasn't able to install it in wine. Also needed to put d3dx9_25.dll in .wine/windows/system32 to run the game . Gave a warning message saying my processor wasn't fast enough (It said it was 1000MHZ. I have a 3800+ dual core) click "Continue Anyway" to run the game.
