Fable III

Make combat simpler?

Holy kerap, how simple can it get? The worst part of fable 2 was the fact it was just button mashing simplicity.

How about introducing some tactics? You could pretty much wade in and batter every combatant after shooting up a few levels and it made combat dull in both of the previous incarnations.

"There's a huge gulf between the completely mindless Easy and the demanding Normal. On the latter, you'll either have to be a Tactics genius or prepared to pause and micro-manage frequently to get through tougher fights, and even veteran RPG players with a full command of the game's skills will find some regular pulls or mini-bosses turning into epic wars of attrition that will drain their stocks of consumables."

YAY! An actual Baldurs Gate RPG sequel then, rather than some JRPG clone. Battles that are actually a challenge and require tactics? OH NO!

I don't know how the console versions will differ, maybe they will offer up some button mashing version taht will satisfy the masses and their ten minute attention span.

Odd review as it seems to me to be rife with contradictions, not least the score.

From the review it sounds like POP ver 2.0.

POP for dummies. Did you find Sands of Time or Two Thrones too difficult? Did you struggle to work out the puzzles? Were you defeated by enemies that required skill to defeat? Sick of having to learn how to play the game?

Don't worry! POP the ADD version is here now. With clear easy to understand accents and nice big flashing buttons.
You will have beaten the game in under 6 hours and you can move on to the next title!

Bumsticks! Loved the original felt it was hard but never cheap. Such a shame. Looks really full on all the time, in the original there was time to breathe between battles and generally only 3-5 enemies to contend with. This looks like a full on continual hack n slash.

Well only one way to know for sure.

No, this is the gaming equivalent of a rock band having a hit and their fans asking them to produce another great rock album, rather than a pop album.

This will sell well regardless of the difficulty level. I am not asking for a game that is harder than the original, just for them to produce another great game. NG got a 9/10 from EG and I don't see how making the game easier would be an improvement.

"Your enjoyment won't be reduced.....if you crank up the difficulty. I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about that."

I don't like altering the level. I want to play the game as it was intended to be played, the "normal" setting is the main focus of the team who developed the game. The first NG was a challenging and rewarding game, I loved it. I don't pay 30-40 quid for a game and then give up, because it actually requires some dedication!

Cranking up the difficulty right from the start tends to unbalance a game. I have never encountered a game where the difficultly setting did anything other than disproportionately alter the damage inflicted by enemies and conversely the damage your character inflicts or simply increase the number of enemies.The AI doesn't become better, the core nature of the game, whether it be jumping a ravine or dodging poisonous flying rabbits is never altered. That is the issue.

I don't want a game that is easy and I don't want a game that has enemies that simply take longer to kill or can kill my character with one or two hits, because I cranked up the heat.

I would much rather own 1 challenging game then 10 piss easy games.

Does that help explain the issue?

I guess the thing about NG is that it forced you to play better, to become better, rather than just button mashing through some pretty scenery.

I shouldn't have to change the difficulty on NG, if I do it alters my sense of enjoyment (odd as that may be!) NG has a reputation as being rock hard. I guess my real concern is that it there is an attitude that accessibility is king and people will cease to produce games that are difficult. Given the vast amount of titles and the disposable way in which people treat games, it feels fairly inevitable.

A game that I can play through in one sitting is fine but it shouldn't be the case for every game.

more accessible. The one phrase that I didn't want to see.

I appreciate the comments about checkpoints and a wider audience. But to be honest... fuck everyone else. I loved NG and Godhand because they were rock hard but had a fantastic learning curve. Initial frustration just gave a greater sense of satisfaction when I did complete a difficult section.

I hate having to play through a game and alter the difficulty setting, it feels as though I am not playing the game as it was intended to be played.

But hey, I am sure it will still be fantastic and is one of my most anticipated games for the 360.
