The cheery, crown-wearing face of modern slaughter.
What’s the defining feature of a Fable game? Character customisation? Moral conundrums? Property administration? If Fable Heroes is anything to go by, the answer’s a lot more fundamental. Above all else, Fable games never like to take themselves too seriously. That’s why the standalone adventures can send you up against highway bandits who complain about how close to retirement they are as you run them through with sabres, and why a downloadable offshoot like this can transform a complex solo RPG into a simple multiplayer brawler, without losing any personality along the way.
