Fable 2: Knothole Island Review

So, I was not too quick to follow up my previous post about Knothole Island in Fable 2. This is because, I felt it was only mediocre. The added items were nice, with more slots in weapons, the ability to remove augments from weapons, armor instead of cloth for those medieval types, as well as a slew of potions to change appearance. The problem was with the additional quests. Don’t get me wrong, any new content after a game has released is nice, but the story of the quests was just kind of pointless. There was nothing to drive a character to work for them. Sure, there was some loot, but as far as enriching story line, there wasn’t much. I give Knothole Island for Fable 2 an ‘OK’ because it was a nice bit of extra content.

Fable 2: Knothole Island

I haven’t had a lot of time lately for gaming, but last night my roommate told me that new content had been released for Fable 2. For those of you who don’t have an XBox 360, or are simply not fans of the Fable series, you are missing out. Fable 2 is a great game full of adventure, exploring, and comedy. Sadly, Fable 2 was simply not long enough for me. I finished the game, and without a strong desire to play it again with a new character, it got resigned to collecting dust. Last night, I found about the new content that has recently been released for this game: Knothole Island. This is a whole new area added to the game that comes with new places to explore, new quests, and most of all, new loot. I have yet to play through the entire region, but have already been enjoying some of the items that come from the island. The new potions to control height and weight are much better than tediously munching celery all the time. For now, I’m excited about the prospect of new adventures in a great game, and will post more about the island when I have beaten the area.
