In my opinion, yeah. A lot of people seem to prefer Fable 2 - but I think much of the old-school charm was lost in the streamlining.

The first Fable was actually a very good game with one huge issue = it was WAY too short. It was the kind of game that deserved to be bigger in most ways and I would have ranked it among my favorites, had that been the case.

Naturally, you have to appreciate the tone and the light-hearted nature of the setting. To me, it was the perfect classic fairy tale setting - and I think there's room for such games.

Also, I think the character development system was much better in the first game.

That said, it was absolutely NOTHING close to what Molyneux originally promised, but you'd have to be a fool to expect otherwise.
